SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On August 25, 2009, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published the initiation of the administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on polyethylene terephthalate film, sheet and 
strip from Taiwan for the period July 1, 2008 through June 30, 2009. 
See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative 
Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 74 FR 42873 (August 25, 
2009). This review covers two producers and/or exporters of the subject 
merchandise to the United States: Nan Ya Plastics Corporation, Ltd. 
(Nan Ya), and Shinkong Synthetic Fibers Corporation (Shinkong).

Extension of Time Limit for the Preliminary Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), and section 351.213(h)(1) of the Department's regulations require 
the Department to issue the preliminary results of a review within 245 
days after the last day of the anniversary month of the order or 
suspension agreement for which the administrative review was requested, 
and final results of the review within 120 days after the date on which 
the notice of the preliminary results is published in the Federal 
Register. However, if the Department determines that it is not 
practicable to complete the review within the aforementioned specified 
time limits, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and section 351.213(h)(2) 
of the Department's regulations allow the Department to extend the 245-
day period to 365 days and to extend the 120-day period to 180 days.
    The last time that the Department conducted an administrative 
review of the antidumping order on polyethylene terephthalate film, 
sheet and strip from Taiwan was for the period of December 21, 2001 
through June 30, 2003. The Department requires additional time to 
evaluate the questionnaire responses from Nan Ya and Shinkong in order 
to conduct a thorough analysis of all information on the record, 
including possible cost and affiliation issues. Therefore, the 
Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary 
results of this review within the original time limit and is extending 
the deadline for completion of the preliminary results of this 
administrative review by 120 days.
    Additionally, on February 12, 2010, the Department issued a 
memorandum revising all case deadlines. 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. 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. 
Therefore, we are hereby extending the deadline for the preliminary 
results by a total of 127 days; the revised deadline for the 
preliminary results of this administrative review is now August 7, 
2010. However, August 7, 2010 falls on a Saturday, and it is the 
Department's long-standing practice to issue a determination the next 
business day when the statutory deadline falls on a weekend, federal 
holiday, or any other day when the Department is closed. See Notice of 
Clarification: Application of ``Next Business Day'' Rule for 
Administrative Determination Deadlines Pursuant to the Tariff Act of 
1930, As Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005). Accordingly, the deadline 
for the completion of these preliminary results is now no later than 
August 9, 2010.
    This notice is issued and published pursuant to sections 
751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: March 18, 2010.
