AGENCY: PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Background On August 24, 2004, the Department of Commerce (the Department) initiated an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on canned pineapple fruit from Thailand. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 69 FR 52857 (August 30, 2004). The period of review is July 1, 2003, through June 30, 2004. Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Review Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), the Department shall make a preliminary determination in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the order. The Act further provides, however, that the Department may extend that 245-day period to 365 days if it determines it is not practicable to complete the review within the foregoing time period. The preliminary results of this antidumping duty administrative review of canned pineapple fruit from Thailand are currently scheduled to be completed on April 2, 2005. However, the Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results in this administrative review within this time limit because additional time is needed to fully address issues relating to the home market viability, as well as to conduct mandatory verifications of the questionnaire responses and supplemental questionnaire responses. 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 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. Barbara E. Tillman, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
