Daily Rules, Proposed Rules, and Notices of the Federal Government
On March 27, 2009, the Department published a notice of initiation of the new shipper review in the antidumping duty order on shrimp from Vietnam for Nhat Duc Co., Ltd.
In antidumping duty new shipper reviews, section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended ("the Act"), and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(1) requires the Department to issue the preliminary results of a new shipper review within 180 days after the date on which the new shipper review was initiated and final results within 90 days after the date on which the preliminary results are issued. However, the Department may extend the deadline for completion of the preliminary results of a new shipper review to 300 days if it determines that the case is extraordinarily complicated.
The Department has determined that the review is extraordinarily complicated as the Department must analyze numerous supplemental questionnaires and information gathered at verification. Based on the timing of the case and the additional information that must be analyzed, the preliminary results of this new shipper review cannot be completed within the statutory time limit of 180 days.
Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results of this new shipper review by an additional 14 days from the December 31, 2009, deadline. The preliminary results will now be due no later than January 14, 2009. The final results continue to be due 90 days after the issuance of the preliminary results.
We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) and 777(i) of the Act.
