SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On August 30, 2006, the Department published a notice of initiation 
of an antidumping duty administrative review for, inter alia, Purified 
Carboxymethylcellulose from Finland, Sweden, the Netherlands, and 
Mexico for the December 27, 2004, through June 30, 2006, period of 
review (POR). See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 71 FR 51573 
(August 30, 2006). On December 11, 2006, the Department received 
requests from Aqualon Company, a division of Hercules, Inc. 
(Petitioner) that a cost investigation be initiated in the review of 
CMC from Finland, Sweden, and the Netherlands. See Letters from 
Petitioner dated December 8, 2006. On January 22, 2007, the Department 
initiated a sales below cost of production investigation in the instant 
review of CMC from the Netherlands. See January 22, 2007, memorandum to 
Richard Weible, regarding Petitioner's allegation of sales below the 
cost of production in the review of CMC from the Netherlands. On 
January 24, 2007, the Department initiated a sales below cost of 
production investigation in the instant review of CMC from Sweden. See 
January 24, 2007, memorandum to Richard Weible, regarding Petitioner's 
allegation of sales below the cost of production in the review of CMC 
from Sweden. On February 5, 2007, the Department initiated a sales 
below cost of production investigation in the instant review of CMC 
from Finland. See February 5, 2007, memorandum to Richard Weible, 
regarding Petitioner's allegation of sales below the cost of production 
in the review of CMC from Finland. The preliminary results for these 
administrative reviews are currently due no later than April 2, 2007.

Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), requires the Department to complete the preliminary results of an 
administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the 
anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested. However, 
if it is not practicable to complete the review within these time 
periods, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to 
extend the 245 day time period for the preliminary results to 365 days.
    The Department has determined it is not practicable to complete 
these reviews within the statutory time limit because we require 
additional time to conduct sales below-cost investigations in these 
administrative reviews and to collect and analyze other information 
needed for our preliminary determinations. Accordingly, the Department 
is extending the time limits for completion of the preliminary results 
of these administrative reviews until no later than July 31, 2007, 
which is 365 days from the last day of the anniversary month of these 
orders. We intend to issue the final results in these reviews no later 
than 120 days after publication of the preliminary results notices.
    This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 
751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: March 30, 2007.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
