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.

See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2). The Department has determined that the review is extraordinarily complicated because of issues related to surrogate valuation and the Department will need additional time to review the supplemental questionnaire responses received after the preliminary results. Therefore, the Department has PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 61697 determined that the final results of this NSR cannot be completed within the statutory time limit of 90 days.

Certain Activated Carbon From the People's Republic of China: 
Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results of the Third 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review

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

DATES: Effective Date: October 6, 2010.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Bob Palmer or Katie Marksberry, AD/CVD 
Operations, Office 9, Import Administration, International Trade

9068 or (202) 482-7905, respectively.

Background

    On May 28, 2010, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') 
published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of an 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain 
activated carbon from the People's Republic of China (``PRC'') covering 
the period April 1, 2009, through March 31, 2010. See Initiation of 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 75 FR 29976 
(May 28, 2010); see also Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 75 FR 
37759 (June 30, 2010).

[[Page 61698]]

    On July 21, 2010, the Department selected one mandatory respondent 
in the above-referenced administrative review pursuant to section 
777A(c)(2)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''). See 
Memorandum to James Doyle, Director, Office 9, from Jamie Blair-Walker, 
Case Analyst, and Kabir Archuletta, Case Analyst, RE: Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review of Certain Activated Carbon from the People's 
Republic of China: Selection of Respondent for Individual Review, dated 
July 21, 2010. On September 29, 2010, the Department selected Calgon 
Carbon (Tianjin) (``CCT'') as the second mandatory respondent in the 
above-referenced administrative review pursuant to section 
777A(c)(2)(B) the Act. See Memorandum to James Doyle, Director, Office 
9, through Catherine Bertrand, Program Manager, Office 9, from Katie 
Marksberry, International Trade Specialist, RE: Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review of Certain Activated Carbon from the People's 
Republic of China: Selection of Additional Mandatory Respondent, dated 
September 29, 2010. The preliminary results of this administrative 
review are currently due on December 31, 2010.

Statutory Time Limits

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act requires the Department to issue 
the preliminary results of an administrative review within 245 days 
after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a 
review is requested. Consistent with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, 
the Department may extend the 245-day period to 365 days if it is not 
practicable to complete the review within a 245-day period.

Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results

    The preliminary results are currently due on December 31, 2010. 
This administrative review covers two mandatory respondents, both of 
whom have numerous suppliers which will require the Department to 
gather and analyze a significant amount of information pertaining to 
each supplier's manufacturing methods. Moreover, because several rounds 
of comments and extensive analysis had delayed the Department's 
selection of CCT as the second mandatory respondent, the Department 
will need additional time to fully analyze CCT's initial questionnaire 
responses prior to the preliminary results. This extension is also 
necessary to give all parties to the proceeding adequate time to supply 
the Department with information related to CCT's factors of production. 
The current date of the preliminary results does not afford the 
Department adequate time to gather, analyze, request supplementary 
information, and allow parties to fully participate in the proceeding.
    Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the 
Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary 
results within the original time period and thus the Department is 
extending the time limit for issuing the preliminary results by 120 
days until April 30, 2011. The final results continue to be due 120 
days after the publication of the preliminary results.
    This notice is published pursuant to sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 
777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).

    Dated: September 30, 2010.
