On January 10, 2012, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published in the Federal Register the preliminary results of the 2009-2010 administrative review of the antidumping duty order on hand trucks and certain parts thereof from the People's Republic of China. See Hand Trucks and Certain Parts Thereof from the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 77 FR 1464 (January 10, 2012) (Preliminary Results).
Extension of Time Limits for Final Results of Review
Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires that the Department complete the final results of an administrative review within 120 days after the date on which notice of the preliminary results was published in the Federal Register. 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 after the publication date of the preliminary results.
The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the final results of this review within the original time frame because the Department continues to require additional time to analyze issues raised in recently filed case and rebuttal briefs. Thus, the Department finds it is not practicable to complete this review by the current deadline (i.e., May 9, 2012). Accordingly, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the final results of this administrative review by an additional 60 days (i.e., until July 8, 2012), in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).
This extension is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.
Dated: April 20, 2012.
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations.
