1 See Diamond Sawblades and Parts Thereof From the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results and Preliminary Intent To Terminate, in Part, Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review and Extension of Time Limit for Final Results,76 FR 38357 (June 30, 2011) ("Preliminary Results").

Extension of Time Limit for the Final Results

In thePreliminary Results,the Department stated that it was extending the time limit to issue the final results of the review by 55 days, thereby extending the previous deadline to August 18, 2011. However, it is not practicable to complete the review within this time period. Accordingly, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.302(b), we are extending the time limit by 30 days.

The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete this review by the current deadline. The Department has determined that it requires additional time to analyze the case and rebuttal briefs submitted by interested parties and to consider the unique facts and legal questions surrounding this changed circumstances review. Consequently, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.302(b), the Department is extending the time period for issuing the final results in this review by 30 days. Therefore, the final results will be due no later than September 19, 2011, as September 17, 2011, is a Saturday.

We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with sections 751(b) and 771(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended.

Dated: August 10, 2011. Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations.
