On April 9, 2010, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of the administrative reviews of the antidumping duty orders on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Vietnam and the People's Republic of China. See Notice of Initiation of Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part of the Antidumping Duty Orders on Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From the Socialist Republic of Vietnam and the People's Republic of China, 75 FR 18154 (April 9, 2010). On March 4, 2011, the Department published the preliminary results of the review of shrimp from Vietnam. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Preliminary Results, Partial Rescission, and Request for Revocation, In Part, of the Fifth Administrative Review, 76 FR 12054 (March 4, 2011). The final results are currently due no later than July 5, 2011.
Statutory Time Limits
In antidumping duty administrative reviews, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”), requires the Department to make a final determination in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within this time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the 120 day period to 180 days after the preliminary results if it determines it is not practicable to complete the review within the foregoing time period.
Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Review
We determine that it is not practicable to complete the final results of this administrative review within the 120 day time limit because the Department requires additional time to analyze issues in case and rebuttal briefs submitted by parties, including comments on surrogate country selection, wage rate calculation, and shrimp surrogate value.
Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time period for completion of the final results of this review, which is currently due on July 5, 2011, by 45 days to 165 days after the date on which the preliminary results were published. Therefore, the final results are now due no later than August 16, 2011.
We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.Start Signature
