SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On June 4, 2008, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') 
published a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on certain activated carbon from the People's 
Republic of China (``PRC'') covering the period October 11, 2006, 
through March 31, 2008. See Initiation of Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation 
in Part, 73 FR 31813 (June 4, 2008).
    On August 5, 2008, the Department selected three mandatory 
respondents in the above-referenced administrative review pursuant to 
section 777A(c)(2)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''). See Memorandum to James C. Doyle, Director, Office 9, from Paul 
Walker, Senior Case Analyst, RE: Antidumping Duty Administrative Review 
of Certain Activated Carbon from the People's Republic of China: 
Selection of Respondents for Individual Review (August 5, 2008).
    On October 14, 2008, because one of the three original mandatory 
respondents notified the Department that it would not participate in 
the above-referenced administrative review, the Department selected an 
additional company as a voluntary respondent pursuant to section 782(a) 
of the Act. See Memorandum to James C. Doyle, Director, Office 9, from 
Julia Hancock, Senior Case Analyst, RE: Antidumping Duty Administrative 
Review of Certain Activated Carbon from the People's Republic of China: 
Selection of Voluntary Respondent (October 14, 2008). The preliminary 
results of this administrative review are currently due on December 31, 
2008.

Statutory Time Limits

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act requires the Department to issue 
the preliminary results of an administrative review within 245 days 
after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a 
review is requested. Consistent with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, 
the Department may extend the 245-day period to 365 days if it is not 
practicable to complete the review within a 245-day period.

Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results

    The Department determines that completion of the preliminary 
results of the administrative review within the original time period is 
not practicable. This administrative review covers two mandatory 
respondents and one voluntary respondent, and to conduct the sales and 
factor analyses for each company and their numerous suppliers requires 
the Department to gather and analyze a significant amount of 
information pertaining to each respondent's sales practices and 
manufacturing methods. Moreover, the Department requires additional 
time to analyze complicated affiliation issues.
    Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the 
Department is extending the time limit for issuing the preliminary 
results by 120 days until April 30, 2009. The final results continue to 
be due 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results.
    This notice is published pursuant to sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 
777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).
