The Department may, however, extend the time period for completion of the preliminary results of a new shipper review to 300 days if it determines that the case is extraordinarily complicated. See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On May 25, 2000, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
published an antidumping duty order on certain polyester staple fiber 
(``PSF'') from Taiwan. See Notice of Amended Final Determination of 
Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Certain Polyester Staple Fiber From the 
Republic of Korea and Antidumping Duty Orders: Certain Polyester Staple 
Fiber From the Republic of Korea and Taiwan, 65 FR 33807 (May 25,

``Opportunity to Request Administrative Review'' of this order. See 
Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended 
Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 71 FR 
25565 (May 1, 2006). On May 31, 2006, Far Eastern Textile Limited 
(``FET'') requested an administrative review. On July 3, 2006, the

review

[[Page 45734]]

(``POR'') is May 1, 2005, through April 30, 2006.
    On June 6, 2007, the Department published the preliminary results 
of the 2005-2006 administrative review of the antidumping duty order on 
certain PSF from Taiwan. See Certain Polyester Staple Fiber from 
Taiwan: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review,

preliminary results we stated that we would issue our final results for 
the antidumping duty administrative review no later than 120 days after

2007).

Extension of Time Limit for Final Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act requires the Department to issue 
the final results in an administrative review within 120 days of the 
publication date of the preliminary results. However, if it is not 
practicable to complete the review within this time period, section

for the final results to a maximum of 180 days.
    The Department has determined that completion of the final results 
of this review within the original time period is not practicable due 
to the complex legal and factual issues that have arisen since the 
issuance of our preliminary results of review. Specifically, the 
Department requires additional time to review pending allegations made 
by the domestic interested parties and the rebuttals filed by the 
respondent. Thus, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, 
the Department is extending the time period for issuing the final 
results of review by an additional 60 days, until December 3, 2007.
    This notice is published pursuant to sections 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) and
