The preliminary results of this administrative review are currently due no later than December 31, 2009. BILLING CODE 3510–22–S Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires the Department to make a preliminary determination 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 determination is published in the Federal Register. 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. We determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of this review by the current deadline of December 31, 2009, because we require additional time to analyze a number of complex cost–accounting and corporate–affiliation issues relating to this administrative review that have been raised by parties to the proceeding. In addition, we plan to verify the questionnaire responses submitted for this review which will require additional time. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2), we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of this review by 120 days to April 30, 2010.
