Extension of Time Limits for Final Results Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘Act’’), and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(1) require the Department to issue the final results in a new shipper review of an antidumping duty order 90 days after the date on which the preliminary results are issued. The Department may, however, extend the deadline for completion of the final results of a new shipper review to 150 days if it determines that the case is extraordinarily complicated. See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2). The Department determines that this new shipper review involves extraordinarily complicated methodological issues and is extending the deadline because it needs more time to analyze additional data placed on the record following the Preliminary Results. This additional data presents a number of complex factual and legal questions with regard to issues of surrogate country selection and the surrogate value of whole fish. Thus, the Department requires additional time to analyze these data and address these circumstances in these reviews. Accordingly, because the Department requires additional time to complete the final results, we are extending the time for the completion of the final results of this review by 30 days, from the present due date of May 26, 2010, to June 25, 2010.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On January 19, 2010, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
issued the preliminary results of the fifth new shipper review for the 
period August 1, 2008, through January 31, 2009. See Certain Frozen 
Fish Fillets From the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Preliminary 
Results of New Shipper Review, 75 FR 4350 (January 29, 2010) 
(``Preliminary Results''). On February 12, 2010, the Department tolled 
administrative deadlines, including in the instant review, by one 
calendar week. See Tolling of Administrative Deadlines As a Result of 
the Government Closure during the Recent Snowstorm, dated February 12, 
2010 (``Tolling Memo''). On February 16, 2010, the Department extended 
the deadlines for submission of surrogate value data, surrogate value 
rebuttal comments, case and rebuttal briefs. See Memorandum to the 
File, from Javier Barrientos, Senior Case Analyst, Certain Frozen Fish 
Fillets from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, dated February 16, 
2010. On March 4, 2010, the Department extended the deadlines for 
submission of case and rebuttal briefs. See Memorandum to the File, 
from Javier Barrientos, Senior Case Analyst, Certain Frozen Fish 
Fillets from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, dated March 4, 2010. On 
April 26, 2010, the Department extended the deadline for the final 
results in the instant review by 30 days. See Certain Frozen Fish 
Fillets from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Extension of Time Limit 
for Final Results of the Fifth New Shipper Review, 75 FR 26199 (April 
26, 2010). The final results are currently due on May 26, 2010 
(inclusive of the seven day extension per the Tolling Memo).

Extension of Time Limits for Final Results

    Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(``Act''), and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(1) require the Department to issue the 
final results in a new shipper review of an antidumping duty order 90 
days after the date on which the preliminary results are issued. The 
Department may, however, extend the deadline for completion of the 
final results of a new shipper review to 150 days if it determines that 
the case is extraordinarily complicated. See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) 
of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2).
    The Department determines that this new shipper review involves 
extraordinarily complicated methodological issues and is extending the 
deadline because it needs more time to analyze additional data placed 
on the record following the Preliminary Results. This additional data 
presents a number of complex factual and legal questions with regard to 
issues of surrogate country selection and the surrogate value of whole 
fish. Thus, the Department requires additional time to analyze these 
data and address these circumstances in these reviews.
    Accordingly, because the Department requires additional time to 
complete the final results, we are extending the time for the 
completion of the final results of this review by 30 days, from the 
present due date of May 26, 2010, to June 25, 2010.
    This notice is published in accordance with section 
751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2).

    Dated: May 19,2010.

Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Operations.
