SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On June 4, 2008, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of the 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on brake rotors 
from the People's Republic of China (PRC) covering the period April 1, 
2007, 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 June 25, 2008, the Department 
published a notice of revocation of the antidumping duty order on brake 
rotors from the PRC effective August 14, 2007 (see Brake Rotors From 
the People's Republic of China: Revocation of Antidumping Duty Order 
Pursuant to Second Five-year (Sunset) Review, 73 FR 36039 (June 25, 
2008)). As a result of the revocation of the order, the period of 
review (POR) was changed from April 1, 2007, through March 31, 2008, to 
April 1, 2007, through August 13, 2007 (see June 27, 2009 Memorandum to

in this administrative review. See the July 29, 2008, Memorandum from 
The Team to James Maeder, Office Director, titled ``2007 Antidumping 
Duty Administrative Review of Brake Rotors from the People's Republic 
of China: Selection of Respondents for Individual Review.''
    In July and August 2008, several companies, including Longkou 
Haimeng, timely withdrew their requests for review. We partially 
rescinded the review with respect to these companies. See Brake Rotors 
From the People's Republic of China: Notice of Partial Rescission of 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 73 FR 53193 (September 15, 
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 in an 
administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the 
anniversary month of an order or finding for which a review is 
requested. If it is not practicable to complete the review within this 
time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to 
extend this deadline to a maximum of 365 days. The deadline for the 
preliminary results of this review is currently December 31, 2008.
    In this review, the interested parties have not submitted publicly 
available information (PAI) for consideration in valuing the factors of 
production in the preliminary results. Moreover, we have requested and 
received documentation from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 
for certain entries made by exporter/producer combinations which are 
also included in this review to determine whether those entries are 
non-subject merchandise. Therefore, the Department requires additional 
time to obtain updated PAI and analyze the entry data from CBP. Thus, 
it is not practicable to complete this review within the original time 
limit. Therefore, the Department is partially extending the time limit 
for completion of the preliminary results from 245 days to 306 days, in 
accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) the Act. The preliminary results 
are now due no later than March 2, 2009. The final results continue to 
be due 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).

    Dated: December 11, 2008.
