EFFECTIVE DATE: May 1, 2007.
FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Salim Bhabhrawala at (202) 482-1784,

On September 29, 2006, the Department of Commerce (the Department)
published a notice of initiation of administrative review of the
antidumping duty order on granular polytetrafluoroethylene resin from
Italy. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty
Administrative Reviews, 71 FR 57465 (September 29, 2006). The period of
review is August 1, 2005, through July 31, 2006, and the preliminary
results are currently due no later than May 3, 2007. The review covers
one producer/exporter of the subject merchandise.
Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results
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 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 the 245-day period to 365 days if it
determines it is not practicable to complete the review within the
foregoing time period. We determine that it is not practicable to
complete this administrative review within the time limits mandated by
section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act because this review involves a number
of complicated issues (e.g., the calculation of general and
administrative expenses and U.S. warehousing), which must be addressed
prior to the issuance of the preliminary results. The Department
requires additional time to analyze the respondent's questionnaire
response and issue any necessary supplemental questionnaires.
Accordingly, the Department is extending, by 71 days, the time
limit for completion of the preliminary results of this administrative
review until no later than July 13, 2007. We intend to issue the final
results no later than 120 days after the publication of the preliminary
This extension is in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the
Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).
Dated: April 24, 2007.
Stephen J. Claeys,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
