The preliminary results are currently due no later than May 2, 2008. Extension of Time Limit for 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 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 to up to 365 days. Due to the complexity of the issues in this administrative review, such as direction of credit, we have determined that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of this review within the 245-day period. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, we are fully extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of the review. The preliminary results are now due no later than September 2, 2008, the next business day after 365 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the order.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

BACKGROUND:

    On November 28, 2007, the Department initiated the countervailing 
duty and antidumping duty investigations on sodium nitrite from the 
PRC. See Sodium Nitrite from the People's Republic of China: Initiation 
of Countervailing Duty Investigation, 72 FR 68568 (December 5, 2007) 
and Sodium Nitrite from the Federal Republic of Germany and the 
People's Republic of China: Initiation of Antidumping Duty 
Investigations, 72 FR 68563 (December 5, 2007). The countervailing duty 
and antidumping duty investigations have the same scope with regard to 
the subject merchandise covered. On April 11, 2008, the Department 
published the preliminary affirmative countervailing duty determination 
pertaining to sodium nitrite from the PRC. See Sodium Nitrite from the 
People's Republic of China: Preliminary Affirmative Countervailing Duty 
Determination, 73 FR 19816 (April 11, 2008). On April 14, 2008, counsel 
for petitioner (General Chemical LLC) submitted a letter, in accordance 
with section 705(a)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), 
requesting alignment of the final countervailing duty determination 
with the final determination in the companion antidumping duty 
investigation of sodium nitrite from the PRC.
    Therefore, in accordance with section 705(a)(1) of the Act, and 19 
CFR 351.210(b)(4), we are aligning the final countervailing duty 
determination on sodium nitrite from the PRC with the final 
determination in the companion antidumping duty investigation of sodium 
nitrite from the PRC. The final countervailing duty determination will 
be issued on the same date as the final antidumping duty determination, 
which is currently scheduled to be issued on June 30, 2008.
    This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 705(a)(1) 
of the Act.

    Dated: April 18, 2008.
