(``PRC''). This review covers the period June 1, 2008, through May 31, 
2009.

EFFECTIVE DATE: February 9, 2010.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jerry Huang or Bobby Wong, AD/CVD 
Operations, Office 9, Import Administration, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and 
Constitution Avenue, N.W., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On July 29, 2009, the Department published a notice of initiation 
of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain 
polyester staple fiber from the PRC. See Initiation of Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Deferral of 
Administrative Review, 74 FR 37690 (July 29, 2009). The preliminary 
results of this review are currently due no later than March 2, 2010.

Statutory Time Limits

    In antidumping duty administrative reviews, 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 results are published. However, 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.

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Review

    We determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary 
results of this administrative review within the original time limit 
because the Department requires additional time to analyze 
questionnaire responses, issue supplemental questionnaires, and 
evaluate surrogate value submissions for purposes of the preliminary 
results.
    Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit for 
completion of the preliminary results of this administrative review by 
101 days. The preliminary results will now be due no later than June 
11, 2010. The final results continue to be due 120 days after the 
publication of the preliminary results.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: February 3, 2010.

Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Operations.
