Tapered Roller Bearings and Parts Thereof, Finished or 
Unfinished, from the People's Republic of China: Extension of Time 
Limit for the Preliminary Results of the 2007-2008 Administrative 
Review of the Antidumping Duty Order

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

EFFECTIVE DATE: February 19, 2009.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Frances Veith or Brendan Quinn, AD/CVD 
Operations, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW, 
Washington, DC 20230, telephone: (202) 482-4295 or (202) 482-5848, 
respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On July 30, 2008, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') 
initiated the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on 
tapered roller bearings and parts thereof, finished or unfinished, from 
the People's Republic of China (``PRC'') for the period June 1, 2007 
through May 31, 2008. 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 are currently due no later than March 2, 2009.

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 in 
an administrative review 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 of Preliminary Results
    We determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary 
results of this review within the original time limit because the 
Department requires additional time to analyze the supplemental 
questionnaire responses, issue additional supplemental questionnaires 
if necessary, and evaluate the most appropriate surrogate values on the 
administrative record to use in this segment of the proceeding. 
Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of 
the preliminary results by 90 days. An extension of 90 days from the 
current deadline of March 2, 2009, would result in a new deadline of 
May 31, 2009. However, since May 31, 2009, falls on a Sunday, a non-
business day, the preliminary results will now be due no later than 
June 1, 2009, the next business day. 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)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: February 12, 2009.

Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Operations.
