Extension of Time Limit of the Final Results
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 time limit for the final results to a maximum of 180 days.
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 Start Printed Page 56396submitted by parties, including comments on our cost calculation methodology. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is fully extending the time limit for the final results to December 5, 2011.
We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.Start Signature
