SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    At the request of interested parties, on July 29, 2009, the 
Department published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of 
this antidumping duty administrative review. See Initiation of 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Deferral 
of Administrative Review, 74 FR 39690 (July 29, 2009). The review 
covers the period June 1, 2008, through May 31, 2009. The preliminary 
results for this administrative review is currently due no later than 
March 9, 2010.

Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), requires the Department to complete 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. In this 
case, we note the deadline for completion of this administrative review 
has been extended by an additional seven days because of hazardous 
weather. See February 12, 2010 Memorandum, ``Tolling of Administrative 
Deadlines As a Result of the Government Closure During the Recent 
Snowstorm.'' However, if it is not practicable to complete the review 
within this time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the 
Department to extend the 245 day time period for the preliminary 
results up to 365 days.
    The Department has determined it is not practicable to complete 
this review within the statutory time limit because we require 
additional time to gather and analyze information relating to Kolon's 
cost of production, home market sales activities, and U.S. sales 
activities. Accordingly, the Department is extending the time limits 
for completion of the preliminary results of this administrative review 
until no later than July 7, 2010, which is 365 days from the last day 
of the anniversary month of this order, plus the seven-day extension 
for hazardous weather. We intend to issue the final results in this 
review no later than 120 days after publication of the preliminary 
results.
    This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 
751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: February 24,2010.

Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Operations.
