Daily Rules, Proposed Rules, and Notices of the Federal Government
On January 28, 2009, the Department of Commerce ("Department") published the preliminary results of the third new shipper review for the period August 1, 2007, through January 31, 2008.
Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended ("Act"), and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(1) require the Department to issue the final results in a new shipper review of an antidumping duty order 90 days after the date on which the preliminary results are issued. The Department may, however, extend the deadline for completion of the final results of a new shipper review to 150 days if it determines that the case is extraordinarily complicated.
The Department finds this case is extraordinarily complicated because a study recently placed on the record presents a number of complex factual and legal questions with regard to the surrogate value of whole fish. Therefore, the Department and interested parties need more time to analyze the study. Accordingly, because the Department requires additional time to complete the final results, we are extending the time for the completion of the final results of this review by 60 days to June 15, 2009.
This notice is published in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2).
