Background

On June 8, 2011, the Department of Commerce (“the Department”) published the preliminary results of this administrative review for the period May 1, 2009, to April 30, 2010. See Pure Magnesium from the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results of the 2009-2010 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 76 FR 33194 (June 8, 2011). The final results of review are currently due on October 6, 2011.

Extension of Time Limits for the Final Results of Review

Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”), requires the Department to issue final results 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 period to a maximum of 180 days. The Department determines that completion of the final results of the administrative review within the 120-day period is not practicable. Since the publication of the Preliminary Results, parties have submitted additional surrogate value information, the Department released its labor wage surrogate value data and allowed parties to submit comments thereon, and the parties submitted case and rebuttal briefs. The Department requires additional time to consider this information and argument. Further, the Department provided the opportunity for the parties to be heard at a hearing.

Because it is not practicable to complete this review within the time specified under the Act, we are extending the time period for issuing the final results of the administrative review by 45 days, or until November 21, 2011,[1] in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.

We are publishing this notice pursuant to sections 751(a) and 777(i) of the Act.
