SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On July 29, 2009, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') 
published the initiation of administrative reviews of the antidumping 
duty order on folding metal tables and chairs from the People's 
Republic of China (``PRC''). See Initiation of Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Deferral of 
Administrative Review, 74 FR 37690 (July 29, 2009). These reviews cover 
the periods June 1, 2007, through May 31, 2008, and June 1, 2008, 
through May 31, 2009.\1\ The preliminary results of these reviews are 
currently due no later than March 2, 2010.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ On June 30, 2008, Feili requested that the Department 
conduct an administrative review of their sales for the period June 
1, 2007, through May 31, 2008, and in addition, requested that the 
Department defer the initiation of the review for one year in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(c). Consequently, on July 29, 2009, 
the Department initiated reviews for Feili covering both the 2007-08 
and 2008-09 review periods.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As explained in the memorandum from the Deputy Assistant Secretary 
for Import Administration, the Department has exercised its discretion 
to toll deadlines for the duration of the closure of the Federal 
Government from February 5, through February 12, 2010. Thus, all 
deadlines in this segment of the proceeding have been extended by seven 
days. The revised deadline for the preliminary results of these reviews 
are now March 9, 2010. See Memorandum to the Record from Ronald 
Lorentzen, DAS for Import Administration, regarding ``Tolling of 
Administrative Deadlines As a Result of the Government Closure During 
the Recent Snowstorm,'' dated February 12, 2010.

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Review

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (``the Act''), the Department shall make a preliminary 
determination in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order 
within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date 
of publication of the order. The Act further provides, however, that 
the Department may extend that 245-day period to 365 days if it 
determines it is not practicable to complete the review within the 
foregoing time period.
    The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the 
preliminary results of the administrative reviews of folding metal 
tables and chairs from the PRC within this time limit. Specifically, 
additional time is needed to determine the appropriate surrogate 
country and surrogate values with which to value factors of production. 
Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the 
Department is extending the time period for completion of the 
preliminary results of these reviews, which are currently due on March 
9, 2010, by 60 days. Therefore, the preliminary results are now due no 
later than May 8, 2010.
    This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) 
and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: March 3, 2010.

Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Operations.
