Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 211 / Thursday, November 1, 2007 / Notices Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 72 FR 5007 (February 2, 2007). On February 28, 2007, we received requests for an administrative review for the period February 1, 2006, through January 31, 2007, from Nakshatra and Shree Ganesh.1 On March 28, 2007, we initiated the administrative reviews. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 72 FR 14516 (March 28, 2007). Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results The Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), at section 751(a)(3)(A), provides that the Department will issue the preliminary results of 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 provides further that if the Department determines that it is not practicable to complete the review within this time period, the Department may extend the 245-day period to 365 days. The Department has determined that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results by the current 245day deadline of October 31, 2007. Based on our analysis of Nakshatra’s comparison market sales listing, we have determined that we need to obtain data on Nakshatra’s downstream sales in the comparison market. The Department requires additional time to request these data, analyze the response, and complete the antidumping calculation. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2), the Department is extending the time limit for the preliminary results by 120 days to February 28, 2008. This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: October 26, 2007. Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretaryfor Import Administration.
