SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On April 1, 2009, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') 
published in the Federal Register a notice for an opportunity to 
request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on 
magnesium metal from the People's Republic of China (``PRC'').\1\ 
Respondent, Tianjin Magnesium International Co., Ltd. (``TMI''), 
requested a review on April 27, 2009, and Petitioner, US Magnesium LLC 
(``US Magnesium''), requested a review of TMI on April 30, 2009. The 
Department published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of 
an administrative review of TMI for the period April 1, 2008, through 
March 31, 2009.\2\ On December 23, 2009, we extended the deadline for 
issuing the preliminary results of review for 75 days until March 16, 
2010.\3\ As explained in the memorandum regarding ``Tolling of 
Administrative Deadlines as a Result of the Government Closure During 
the Recent Snowstorm'' 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 current 
revised deadline for the preliminary results of this review is now 
March 23, 2010.\4\

Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results

    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.
    We determine that completion of the preliminary results of this 
review within the 245-day period is not practicable because the 
Department requires additional time to analyze information pertaining 
to the respondent's sales practices, factors of production, and to 
issue and review responses to supplemental questionnaires. Therefore, 
we require additional time to complete these preliminary results. As a 
result, 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 this review by an additional 21 days until April 
13, 2010.
    This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) 
and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: March 16, 2010.

Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Operations.
