However, the Department may extend the period of time for making its determination by not more than 90 days, if it determines that the review is extraordinarily complicated in accordance with section 751(c)(5)(B) of the Act,. We determine that these reviews are extraordinarily complicated, pursuant to E:\FR\FM\23SEN1.SGM 23SEN1
