SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On May 25, 2007, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
published a notice of initiation of administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on polyethylene retail carrier bags from the 
Peoples' Republic of China (``PRC''). See Initiation of Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation 
in Part, 72 FR 54428 (September 25, 2007). 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.

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (``Act''), the Department shall make a preliminary 
determination in 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. Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act further 
provides, however, that the Department may extend the 245-day period to 
365 days if it determines it is not practicable to complete the review 
within the foregoing time period. The Department determines that it is 
not practicable to complete this administrative review within the time 
limits mandated by section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act because this review 
involves examining a number of complex issues related to the factors of 
production and surrogate values. The Department requires additional 
time to issue and analyze supplemental questionnaires regarding these 
issues. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, 
the Department is extending the time period for completing the 
preliminary results of this administrative review until August 30, 
2008, which is 365 days from the last day of the anniversary month of 
the date of publication of the order. However, August 30, 2008, falls 
on a Saturday and September 1, 2008, is a federal holiday. It is the 
Department's long-standing practice to issue a determination the next 
business day when the statutory deadline falls on a weekend, federal 
holiday, or any other day when the Department is closed. See Notice of 
Clarification: Application of ``Next Business Day'' Rule for 
Administrative Determination Deadlines Pursuant to the Tariff Act of 
1930, As Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005). Accordingly, the deadline 
for completion of the preliminary results is now no later than 
September 2, 2008. The deadline for the final results of the review 
continues to be 120 days after the publication of the preliminary 
results.
    This extension notice is issued and published in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: April 18, 2008.
