SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On April 27, 2009, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of an 
administrative review of sodium hexametaphosphate from the People's 
Republic of China (``PRC''), covering the period September 14, 2007 - 
February 28, 2009. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 74 FR 
19042 (April 27, 2009) (``Initiation''). From May 26, 2009 to October 
28, 2009, the respondent in this review submitted responses to the 
Department's antidumping duty questionnaires. The preliminary results 
of this administrative review are currently due on December 1, 2009.

Extension of Time Limit for the Preliminary Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires the Department to issue the preliminary results of an 
administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the 
anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested. If it is 
not practicable to complete the review within the time period, section 
751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend this deadline 
to a maximum of 365 days.
    The Department determines that completion of the preliminary 
results of this review within the statutory time period is not 
practicable, given the extraordinarily complicated nature of the 
proceeding. The Department requires more time to gather and analyze a 
significant amount of information pertaining to the respondent's 
corporate structure and ownership, sales practices, and manufacturing 
methods. The Department also requires additional time to analyze the 
questionnaire responses and conduct verification. Therefore, given the 
number and complexity of issues in this case, and in accordance with 
section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, we are extending the time period for 
issuing the preliminary results of review by 60 days until January 30, 
2010. The final results continue to be due 120 days after the 
publication of the preliminary results.
    This notice is published pursuant to sections 751(1)(3)(A) and 
777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).

    Dated: November 19, 2009.

Duty Operations.
