SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On March 9, 2009, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) published notices for the preliminary results of the administrative reviews of the antidumping duty orders on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (‘‘Vietnam’’), covering the period February 1, 2007, through January 31, 2008. See Third Administrative Review of Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results and Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 74 FR 10026 (March 9, 2009); and Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Preliminary Results, Preliminary Partial Rescission and Request for Revocation, in Part, of the Third Administrative Review, 74 FR 10009 (March 9, 2009).

Extension of Time Limit for the Final Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘Act’’), requires the Department issue the final results of an administrative review within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. 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 deadline for the final results to a maximum of 180 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. With respect to shrimp from the PRC, the Department requires additional time to properly consider the numerous and complex issues raised by interested parties in their case briefs, including the surrogate country selection. Similarly, with respect to shrimp from Vietnam, the Department requires additional time to consider the issues raised in case briefs from multiple interested parties, including the separate–rate status for numerous non–mandatory companies, and to conduct a public hearing requested by multiple interested parties. Thus, it is not practicable to complete these reviews within the original time E:\FR\FM\04JNN1.SGM 04JNN1

Background

    On April 27, 2009, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
issued the preliminary results of several new shipper reviews of fresh 
garlic from the People's Republic of China, covering the periods of 
review of November 1, 2007 through April 30, 2008 for three companies, 
and November 1, 2007 through June 9, 2008, for three companies. See 
Fresh Garlic from the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results 
of New Shipper Reviews, 74 FR 20452 (May 4, 2009).

Statutory Time Limits

    Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), provides that the Department will issue the preliminary results 
of a new shipper review of an antidumping duty order within 180 days 
after the day on which the review was initiated, and final results of 
review within 90 days after the date on which the preliminary results 
were issued (19 CFR 351.214(i)(1)). However, if the Secretary concludes 
that a new shipper review is extraordinarily complicated, the Secretary 
may extend the 180-day period to 300 days, and may extend the 90-day 
period to 150 days. See 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2).

Extension of Time Limit for Final Results

    The Department determines that these new shipper reviews involve 
extraordinarily complicated methodological issues, including the 
continued evaluation of the bona fideU nature of each company's sales. 
Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 
19 CFR 351.214(i)(2), the Department is extending the time limit for 
these final results which is 150 days from the date on which the 
preliminary results were issued, until September 24, 2009.
