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). On July 7, 2009, the Department published the preliminary results of review. See Folding Metal Tables and Chairs from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 74 FR 32118 (July 7, 2009). This review covers the period June 1, 2007, through May 31, 2008. Extension of Time Limit for Final Results of Review Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘Act’’), the Department shall make a final determination in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. The Act further provides, however, that the Department may extend that 120day period to 180 days after the preliminary results if it determines it is not practicable to complete the review within the foregoing time period. The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the final results of the administrative review of folding metal tables and chairs from the PRC within the 120-day time limit due to complex issues the parties have raised related to surrogate financial statements and market economy purchases. We find that additional time is needed to complete these final results. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time period for completion of the PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 21.43 21.43 21.43 21.43 21.43 21.43 21.43 21.43 21.43 21.43 164.09 final results of this review, which is currently due on November 4, 2009, by 30 days to 150 days after the date on which the preliminary results was published.
