Download as PDF 7660 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 32 / Thursday, February 19, 2009 / Notices purposes, our written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. Rescission of Changed Circumstances Review Because Vinh Hoan has been selected as a respondent for individual examination in the ongoing administrative review, we will be examining the impact of the affiliation in that proceeding. This examination will include addressing issues with respect to the production and/or sales Vinh Hoan and its affiliate, or their subsidiaries, made to the United States during the period of review and the effect that any affiliation may have had on the operations and management of the relevant firms for purposes of determining, among other things, whether Vinh Hoan and its affiliate should be treated as a single entity. Thus, we intend to address all issues arising out of the changed circumstances review on certain frozen fish fillets from Vietnam in the context of the 2007/2008 administrative review. Accordingly, we are rescinding the changed circumstances review with respect to the antidumping duty order on certain frozen fish fillets from Vietnam. We will incorporate the record of the rescinded changed circumstances review into the record of the 2007/2008 administrative review. Dated: February 10, 2009.

International Trade Administration Statutory Time Limits 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 results are published.

Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (``Department'') is extending the 
time limit for the preliminary results of the administrative review of 
silicon metal from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''). This 
review covers the period June 1, 2007, through May 31, 2008.

EFFECTIVE DATE: February 19, 2009.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Bobby Wong or Jerry Huang, AD/CVD 
Operations, Office 9, Import Administration, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and 
Constitution Avenue, N.W., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-
0409 or (202) 482-4047, respectively.

Background

    On July 30, 2008, the Department published a notice of initiation 
of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on silicon 
metal from the PRC. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Administrative Reviews, Request for Revocation in Part, and 
Deferral of Administrative Review, 73 FR 44220 (July 30, 2008). The 
preliminary results of this review are currently due no later than 
March 2, 2009.

Statutory Time Limits

    In antidumping duty administrative reviews, 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 results are published. However, 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.

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Review

    We determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary 
results of

[[Page 7661]]

this administrative review within the original time limit because the 
Department requires additional time to analyze questionnaire responses, 
issue supplemental questionnaires, conduct verification, and to 
evaluate surrogate value submissions for purposes of the preliminary 
results.
    Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit for 
completion of the preliminary results of this administrative review by 
120 days. The preliminary results will now be due no later than June 
30, 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 
sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: February 12, 2009.

Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Operations.
