This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

On June 30, 2010, the Department of Commerce (“the Department”) published the initiation of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on citric acid and certain citrate salts (“citric acid”) from the People's Republic of China (“PRC”). See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Deferral of Administrative Review, 75 FR 37759 (June 30, 2010). On June 10, 2011, the Department published the preliminary results of the first administrative review of the antidumping duty order of citric acid from the PRC. See Citric Acid and Certain Citrate Salts From the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results of the First Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty Order; and Partial Rescission of Administrative Review, 76 FR 34048 (June 10, 2011). This review covers the periods November 20, 2008, through May 19, 2009, and May 29, 2009, through April 30, 2010. The final results of this review are currently due no later than October 8, 2011.
Extension of Time Limit for Final Results of Review
Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”), the Department shall make a final determination in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order within 120 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the order. The Act further provides, however, that the Department may extend that 120-day period to 180 days if it determines it is not practicable to complete the review within the foregoing time period.
The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the final results of the administrative review of citric acid from the PRC within this time limit. Specifically, additional time is needed to examine respondents' production process, factors of production, and financial statements. Furthermore, the Department requires additional time to prepare for on-site verifications of respondent companies. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is fully extending the time period for completion of the final results of this review, which is currently due on October 8, 2011, by 60 days. Therefore, the final results are now due no later than December 7, 2011.
This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.Start Signature
