See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, Request for Revocation in Part, and Deferral of Administrative Review, 73 FR 16837 (March 31, 2008). On October 27, 2008, we extended the time period for issuing the preliminary results of the review by 90 days until January 29, 2009. See Stainless Steel Bar From Brazil: Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 73 FR 63695 (October 27, 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 and a final determination within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary determination is published. If it is not practicable to complete the review within these time periods, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the preliminary determination to a maximum of 365 days after the last day of the anniversary month. See also 19 CFR 351.213(h). We determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of this review by the current deadline of January 29, 2009, for several reasons. Specifically, the Department has granted the respondent, Villares Metals S.A. (Villares), several extensions to respond to the original and supplemental questionnaires.1 Thus, the Department needs additional time to review and analyze the responses submitted by Villares. Further, the Department requires additional time to review issues such as corporate affiliations and steel grades of products reported by Villares, as it will affect the Department’s matching methodology in this case. Finally, in response to the petitioners’ cost allegation submitted on November 1 See, e.g., letters to Villares from Laurie Parkhill, dated April 18, 2008, May 22, 2008, July 11, 2008, July 30, 2008, and December 19, 2008.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On October 31, 2007, the U.S. Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') published a notice of initiation of the administrative 
review of the antidumping duty order on certain lined paper products 
from India, covering the period April 17, 2006 to August 31, 2007. See 
Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative 
Reviews, 72 FR 61621 (October 31, 2007). On October 7, 2008, the 
Department published the preliminary results of this review. See 
Certain Lined Paper Products from India: Notice of Preliminary Results 
of the First Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 73 FR 58548 
(October 7, 2008). The final results of this review are currently due 
no later than February 4, 2009.

Statutory Time Limits

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires the Department to issue the final results of a review 
within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are 
published. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review 
within that time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the 
Department to extend the time limit for the final results to a maximum 
of 180 days. See also 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).

Extension of Time Limit of Final Results

    We determine that it is not practicable to complete the final 
results of this review within the original time limit. Interested 
parties have raised complex accounting issues in their case and 
rebuttal briefs that require the Department to further analyze its 
positions with respect to these issues. Thus, additional time is 
necessary to complete the final results. Therefore, the Department is 
fully extending the final results by 60 days. The final results are now 
due no later than April 5, 2009. As this date falls on a Sunday, the 
final results are due April 6, 2009. See Notice of Clarification: 
Application of ``Next Business Day'' Rule for Administrative 
Determination Deadlines Pursuant of the Tariff Act of 1930, As Amended, 
70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005).
    This extension is in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the 
Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).

    Dated: January 23, 2009.

Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Operations.
