Certain Pasta from Italy: Extension of Time Limits for the 
Preliminary Results of Eleventh Antidumping Duty Administrative Review

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Christopher Hargett, AD/CVD 
Operations, Office 3, Import Administration, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14\th\ Street and 
Constitution Ave, NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone (202) 482-4161

Background

    On August 24, 2007, the U.S. Department of Commerce 
(``Department'') published a notice of initiation of the administrative 
review of the antidumping duty order on certain pasta from Italy, 
covering the period July 1, 2006 to June 30, 2007. See Initiation of 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request 
for Revocation in Part, 72 FR 48613 (August 24, 2007). The preliminary 
results of this review are currently due no later than April 1, 2008.

Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results

    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 
or finding for which a review is requested. Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the 
Act further states that if it is not practicable to complete the review 
within the time period specified, the administering authority may 
extend the 245-day period to issue its preliminary results by up to 120 
days.
    We determine that completion of the preliminary results of this 
review within the 245-day period is not practicable for the following 
reasons. Petitioner\1\ timely filed a below-cost allegation for 
F.Divella SpA and Pasta Zara S.p.A on December 21, 2007.\2\ The 
Department initiated the below-cost investigation

[[Page 13209]]

on January 18, 2008.\3\ The initial responses to the Department's 
section D questionnaire were received from each of the respondents on 
February 15, 2008.\4\ Given the timing of the questionnaire responses 
and the complexity of issues in this case and in accordance with 
section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2), we are 
extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of review 
by 120 days. Therefore, the preliminary results are now due no later 
than July 30, 2008. The final results continue to be due 120 days after 
publication of the preliminary results.
