Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 229, No. 74 / Tuesday, December 1, 2009 / Notices Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), the Department shall make a preliminary determination in an administrative review of an antidumping order within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the order. Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act further provides, however, that the Department may extend the 245-day period up to 365 days if it determines it is not practicable to complete the review within the foregoing time period. We determine that it is not practicable to complete this administrative review within the time limits mandated by section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act due to the complexity of the issues involved and the need to solicit more information from USIMINAS, regarding its affiliations and certain components of its claimed expenses and their calculation. Therefore, we have fully extended the deadline for completing the preliminary results by 120 days, to not later than March 31, 2010, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. The deadline for the final results of the review continues to be 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results. This extension notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act. Dated: November 23, 2009. John M.
