On October 20, 2011, the Department published partial preliminary results of the administrative review.
On December 7, 2011, the Department published preliminary results of the administrative review.
On February 27, 2012, the Department published partial final results of the administrative review.
The final results of the administrative review are currently due no later than April 5, 2012.
Statutory Time Limits
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 day 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 120-day period to 180 days after publication of the preliminary results.
Extension of Time Limit for Final Results
The Department has determined that it is not practicable to complete the review within the 120-day time period because it requires additional time to evaluate the surrogate value submissions and arguments made by the interested parties following the Preliminary Results. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time limit for completing the final results of the administrative review from 120 days to 180 days. The final results are now due no later than June 4, 2012.
This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a) and 777(i) of the Act.
Dated: March 20, 2012.
Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations.
