Background

    On August 9, 2004, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published in the Federal Register the antidumping duty order on 
polyethylene retail carrier bags from Thailand. See Antidumping Duty 
Order: Polyethylene Retail Carrier Bags From Thailand, 69 FR 48204 
(August 9, 2004). On September 22, 2009, we published a notice of

of an administrative review of the order with respect to six companies. 
See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative 
Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 74 FR 48224, 48226 
(September 22, 2009).\1\ The period of review is August 1, 2008,

Co., Ltd., Giant Pack Co., Ltd., Landblue (Thailand) Co., Ltd., 
Sahachit Watana Plastics Ind. Co., Ltd., Thai Plastic Bags 
Industries Co., Ltd., and Thantawan Industry Public Co., Ltd. Id. 
The Department has determined previously that Thai Plastic Bags 
Industries Co., Ltd., APEC Film Ltd., and Winner's Pack Co., Ltd., 
comprise the Thai Plastic Bags Group. See Notice of Final 
Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Polyethylene Retail 
Carrier Bags From Thailand, 69 FR 34122, 34123 (June 18, 2004).

    As explained in the February 12, 2010, memorandum from the Deputy 
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, the Department has 
exercised its discretion to toll Import Administration deadlines for 
the duration of the closure of the Federal Government from February 5 
through February 12, 2010. Thus, the deadline in this segment of the 
proceeding has been extended by seven days. As a result, the revised 
deadline for the preliminary results of this administrative review 
became May 10, 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.
    On May 4, 2010, we extended the time period for issuing the 
preliminary results of this review by 50 days to June 29, 2010. See 
Polyethylene Retail Carrier Bags from Thailand: Extension of Time Limit 
for Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 75 
FR 23673 (May 4, 2010).

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), requires the Department to make a preliminary determination 
within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order 
for which a review is requested and a final determination within 120 
days after the date on which the preliminary determination is published 
in the Federal Register. If it is not practicable to complete the 
review within these time periods, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act 
allows the Department to extend the time limit for the preliminary 
determination to a maximum of 365 days after the last day of the 
anniversary month.
    We determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary 
results of this review by the current deadline of June 29, 2010, 
because we require additional time to analyze a number of complex cost-
accounting issues relating to this administrative review that have been 
raised by parties to the proceeding. Therefore, in accordance with 
section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2), we are 
extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of this 
review by an additional 58 days to August 26, 2010.
    This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) 
and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
