With respect to shrimp from Thailand, the Department requires additional time to properly consider the numerous and complex issues raised by interested parties in their case briefs. Similarly, with respect to shrimp from Vietnam, the Department requires additional time to consider the issues raised in case briefs from multiple interested parties, including the calculation of the dumping margins and the separate–rates status for numerous non–mandatory companies.
