A petition meets this requirement if the domestic producers or workers who support the petition account for: (i) at least 25 percent of the total production of the domestic like product; and (ii) more than 50 percent of the production of the domestic like product produced by that portion of the industry expressing support for, or opposition to, the petition. Moreover, section 732(c)(4)(D) of the Act provides that, if the petition does not establish support of domestic producers or workers accounting for more than 50 percent of the total production of the domestic like product, the Department shall: (i) poll the industry or rely on other information in order to determine if there is support for the petition, as required by subparagraph (A), or (ii) if there is a large number of producers, determine industry support using a statistically valid sampling method to poll the industry. Section 732(c)(1)(A)(ii) of the Act provides that within 20 days of the filing of an antidumping duty petition, the Department will determine, inter alia, whether the petition has been filed by or on behalf of the U.S. industry producing the domestic like product. Section 732(c)(1)(B) of the Act provides that the deadline for the initiation determination, in exceptional circumstances, may be extended by 20 days in any case in which the Department must ‘‘poll or otherwise determine support for the petition by the industry.’’ Because it is not clear from the Petition whether the industry support criteria have been met, nor does the Petition provide a usable figure for total production of the domestic like product, the Department has determined it should extend the time for initiating an investigation in order to poll the domestic industry. The Department will need additional time to gather and analyze the domestic producers’ responses to the Department’s request for information. Therefore, it is necessary to extend the deadline determining the adequacy of the Petition for a period not to exceed 40 days from the filing of the Petition. As a result, the initiation determination will now be due no later than May 10, 2010.

Notice of Extension of the Deadline for Determining the Adequacy 
of the Antidumping Duty Petition: Glyphosate from the People's Republic 
of China

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

EFFECTIVE DATE: April 16, 2010.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Andrea Berton at (202) 482-4037, AD/
CVD Operations, Import Administration, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14\th\ Street and 
Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20230.

Extension of Initiation of Investigations

The Petition

    On March 31, 2010, the Department of Commerce (Department) received 
an antidumping duty petition filed by Albaugh, Inc. (petitioner) on 
behalf of the domestic industry producing glyphosate. See Antidumping 
Duty Petition on Glyphosate from the People's Republic of China (March 
31, 2010) (Petition).

Determination of Industry Support for the Petition

    Section 732(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), 
requires that a petition be filed by or on behalf of the domestic 
industry. Section 732(c)(4)(A) of the Act provides that the 
Department's industry support determination be based on whether a 
minimum percentage of the relevant industry supports the petition. A 
petition meets this requirement if the domestic producers or workers 
who support the petition account for: (i) at least 25 percent of the 
total production of the domestic like product; and (ii) more than 50 
percent of the production of the domestic like product produced by that 
portion of the industry expressing support for, or opposition to, the 
petition. Moreover, section 732(c)(4)(D) of the Act provides that, if 
the petition does not establish support of domestic producers or 
workers accounting for more than 50 percent of the total production of 
the domestic like product, the Department shall: (i) poll the industry 
or rely on other information in order to determine if there is support 
for the petition, as required by subparagraph (A), or (ii) if there is 
a large number of producers, determine industry support using a 
statistically valid sampling method to poll the industry.

Extension of Time

    Section 732(c)(1)(A)(ii) of the Act provides that within 20 days of 
the filing of an antidumping duty petition, the Department will 
determine, inter alia, whether the petition has been filed by or on 
behalf of the U.S. industry producing the domestic like product. 
Section 732(c)(1)(B) of the Act provides that the deadline for the 
initiation determination, in exceptional circumstances, may be extended 
by 20 days in any case in which the Department must ``poll or otherwise 
determine support for the petition by the industry.'' Because it is not 
clear from the Petition whether the industry support criteria have been 
met, nor does the Petition provide a usable figure for total production 
of the domestic like product, the Department has determined it should 
extend the time for initiating an investigation in order to poll the 
domestic industry.
    The Department will need additional time to gather and analyze the 
domestic producers' responses to the Department's request for 
information. Therefore, it is necessary to extend the deadline 
determining the adequacy of the Petition for a period not to exceed 40 
days from the filing of the Petition. As a result, the initiation 
determination will now be due no later than May 10, 2010.

International Trade Commission Notification

    The Department will contact the International Trade Commission 
(ITC) and will make this extension notice available to the ITC.

    Dated: April 12, 2010.
John M. Andersen,
Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Operations.
