Background

On October 28, 2010, the Department of Commerce (the Department) initiated an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on freshwater crawfish tail meat from the People's Republic of China (PRC) for the period September 1, 2009, through August 31, 2010. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 75 FR 66349 (October 28, 2010). We initiated an administrative review of six companies. On February 28, 2011, we rescinded the review of the order with respect to Yancheng Hi-King. See Freshwater Crawfish Tail Meat From the People's Republic of China: Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review in Part, 76 FR 10879 (February 28, 2011). The preliminary results of the review are currently due no later than June 2, 2011.

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results

Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires the Department to complete the preliminary results within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested and the final results within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. If it is not practicable to complete the review within these time periods, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the preliminary results to a maximum of 365 days after the last day of the anniversary month.

We determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of Start Printed Page 32358this review within the original time limit because we require additional time to analyze various recently filed submissions of factual information submitted by both parties. In addition, the numerous extensions requested by, and granted to, the interested parties for filing various responses has contributed to the Department's need for additional time to complete the preliminary results. Therefore, we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of this review by 46 days until July 18, 2011.

This notice is published in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).
