SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: rmajette on PROD1PC64 with NOTICES AGENCY: Background On September 25, 2007, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) initiated an antidumping duty administrative review on frozen fish fillets from Vietnam. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 72 FR 54428 (September 25, 2007). The Department initiated this review with respect to 32 companies. The period of review is August 1, 2006 through July 31, 2007.

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 time limit for the preliminary determination to a maximum of 365 days after the last day of the anniversary month. Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Review We determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of this review within the original time limit because the Department requires additional time to analyze the supplemental questionnaire responses, issue additional supplemental questionnaires, as well as to evaluate what would be the most appropriate surrogate values to use during the period of review.

The preliminary results will now be due no later than September 2, 2008, which is the first business day after the 120-day extension. The final results continue to be due 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results.

Limit for Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review 
and Partial Rescission of Administrative Review

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration,

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On September 25, 2007, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
initiated an antidumping duty administrative review on frozen fish 
fillets from Vietnam. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 72 FR 
54428 (September 25, 2007). The Department initiated this review with 
respect to 32 companies. The period of review is August 1, 2006 through 
July 31, 2007. The preliminary results of this administrative review 
are currently due no later than May 2, 2008. On October 17, 2007, Vinh 
Quang Fisheries Corporation withdrew its request for review. On 
December 19, 2007, Vinh Hoan Company Limited and Vinh Hoan Corporation 
withdrew their requests for review. On December 20, 2007, Petitioners 
withdrew its request for review with respect to twenty-seven companies, 
including Vinh Quang Fisheries Corporation, Vinh Hoan Company Limited, 
and Vinh Hoan Corporation.

Statutory Time Limits

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires the Department to make a preliminary determination 
within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order 
for which a review is requested and a final determination within 120 
days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. 
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 time limit for the preliminary determination to a maximum of 
365 days after the last day of the anniversary month.

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Review

    We determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary 
results of this review within the original time limit because the 
Department requires additional time to analyze the supplemental 
questionnaire responses, issue additional supplemental questionnaires, 
as well as to evaluate what would be the most appropriate surrogate 
values to use during the period of review. Therefore, the Department is 
extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results by 
120 days. The preliminary results will now be due no later than 
September 2, 2008, which is the first business day after the 120-day 
extension. The final results continue to be due 120 days after the 
publication of the preliminary results.

Partial Rescission of Review

    The applicable regulation, 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), states that if a 
party that requested an administrative review withdraws the request 
within 90 days of the publication of the notice of initiation of the 
requested review, the Secretary will rescind the review. Petitioners 
withdrew their review request with respect to twenty seven exporters of 
subject merchandise within the 90-day deadline, in accordance with 19 
CFR 351.213(d)(1). Also, within the 90-day deadline respondents Vinh 
Quang Fisheries Corporation, Vinh Hoan Company Limited, and Vinh Hoan 
Corporation withdrew their respective requests for review. Requests for 
review from An Giang Fisheries Import and Export Joint Stock Company 
(aka Agifish or AnGiang Fisheries Import and Export) and Anvifish Co., 
Ltd., were not withdrawn by respondents.
    Therefore, we are partially rescinding this review of the 
antidumping duty order on frozen fish fillets from Vietnam with respect 
to the following twenty five companies, because all requesting parities 
for these companies timely withdrew the requests for review: An Giang 
Agriculture and Food Import Export Company (aka Afiex, A. Seafood,
