The Act and regulations further provide, however, that the Department may extend that 180-day period to 300 days if it determines that this review is extraordinarily complicated. See 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2) and 751 (a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act. The Department finds that this review is extraordinarily complicated and that it is not practicable to complete this new shipper review within the foregoing time period. Specifically, the Department must issue supplemental questionnaires to obtain additional information about (1) Ayecue’s complex methodology for allocating consumption rates of factors of production, and (2) the bona fides of its U.S. sale. In addition, the Department needs additional time to conduct verification of the submitted information. Accordingly, the Department finds that additional time is needed in order to complete these preliminary results. Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2) allow the Department to extend the deadline for the preliminary results to a maximum of 300 days from the date of initiation of the new shipper review. For the reasons noted above, we are extending the deadline for the completion of the preliminary results of this new shipper review to 300 days, i.e., from September 24, 2007, until no later than January 22, 2008.1 The deadline for the final results of this new shipper review continues to be 90 days after the publication of the preliminary results. This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and section 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2). Dated: September 7, 2007.
