Department of Commerce.

DATES: Effective Date: March 4, 2005.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jeff Pedersen or Sam Zengotitabengoa,

Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-
2769 or (202) 482-4195, respectively.

Background

    On August 30, 2004, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published a notice of initiation of administrative review of the 
countervailing duty order on polyethylene terephthalate film, sheet, 
and strip (PET film) from India covering the period from January 1, 
2003, through December 31, 2003. See Initiation of Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation 
in Part, 69 FR 52857 (August 30, 2004). The preliminary results are 
currently due no later than April 2, 2005.

Statutory Time Limits

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), requires the Department to make a preliminary determination 
within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date 
of publication of the order for which a review is requested and a final 
determination within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary 
determination is 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 time limit for the 
preliminary determination to a maximum of 365 days and the time limit 
for the final determination to 180 days (or 300 days if the Department 
does not extend the time limit for the preliminary determination) from 
the date of publication of the preliminary determination.

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Review

    The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the 
preliminary results in this countervailing duty administrative review 
of PET film from India within the 245-day statutory time frame because 
additional time is needed to fully analyze a new subsidy allegation 
submitted by the petitioner in this review, new subsidy programs, and 
submissions from a new respondent, as well as to conduct the 
verifications of the questionnaire responses of the respondents in this 
administrative review.
    Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the 
Department is extending the time limit for completion of the 
preliminary results of this review until no later than August 1, 2005, 
which is the next business day after 365 days from the last day of the 
anniversary month of the date of publication of the order. The deadline 
for the final results of this administrative review continues to be 120 
days after the publication of the preliminary results.
    This notice is issued and published in accordance with section 
751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.

    Dated: February 28, 2005.

Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
