On April 27, 2011, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published a notice of initiation of administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain orange juice from Brazil. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 76 FR 23545 (Apr. 27, 2011).

The review covers three producers/exporters of the subject merchandise to the United States.
Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results
Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), the Department shall make a preliminary determination in an administrative review of an antidumping order within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the order. Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act further provides, however, that the Department may extend the 245-day period up to 365 days if it determines it is not practicable to complete the review within the foregoing time period. We determine that it is not practicable to complete this administrative review within the time limits mandated by section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act because we require more time to issue supplemental questionnaires to certain of the respondents and analyze their responses. Therefore, we have fully extended the deadline for completing Start Printed Page 65497the preliminary results until March 30, 2012. The deadline for the final results of the review continues to be 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results.
This extension notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.Start Signature
