On July 28, 2011, the Department of Commerce (Department) initiated the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on chlorinated isocyanurates (chlorinated isos) from the People's Republic of China (PRC) covering the period of review, June 1, 2010, through May 31, 2011.
The current deadline for the preliminary results is March 1, 2012.
Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results
Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and section 351.213(h)(1) of the Department's regulations require the Department to issue the preliminary results of a review within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the order or suspension agreement for which the administrative review was requested, and the final results of the review within 120 days after the date on which the notice of the preliminary results is published in the Federal Register. However, if the Department determines that it is not practicable to complete the review within the aforementioned specified time limits, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and section 351.213(h)(2) of the Department's regulations allow the Department to extend the 245-day period to 365 days and to extend the 120-day period to 180 days.
The Department finds that it requires additional time to complete the preliminary results of the administrative review of chlorinated isos from the PRC. Specifically, the Department requires further time to select an appropriate surrogate country and analyze data sources for over forty factors of production. Therefore, because the Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the review within the original deadlines, the Department is extending the time period for completion of the preliminary results of this review from 245 days to 365 days. The revised deadline for the preliminary results of this administrative review is now no later than June 29, 2012.
This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
Dated: January 25, 2012.
