See Certain Hot-Rolled Flat-Rolled Carbon Quality Steel Products From Brazil: Preliminary Results of Countervailing Duty Administrative Review, 75 FR 64700 (October 20, 2010).

However, if the Department determines that it is not practicable to complete the review within the time limit, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2) allow the Department to extend the 120-day period up to 180 days.

Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2), we determine that it is not practicable to complete the results of this review within the original time limit. The Department had to request additional information from USIMINAS/COSIPA and the Government of Brazil after the preliminary results. Consequently, the Department needs additional time to analyze this information and to consider comments filed by the parties. In accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department has decided to extend the time limit for the final results from 120 days to 180 days; the final results will now be due no later than April 18, 2011.

Background On September 15, 2010, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) published in the Federal Register the Preliminary Results of the antidumping duty order on certain steel nails (‘‘steel nails’’) from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’).1 Subsequent 1 See Certain Steel Nails From the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Preliminary Results and Preliminary Rescission, in Part, of the E:\FR\FM\14DEN1.SGM 14DEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 239 / Tuesday, December 14, 2010 / Notices to the publication of the Preliminary Results, the Department extended the deadlines for submission of surrogate values, rebuttal comments and case briefs.2 The period of review (‘‘POR’’) is January 23, 2008, through July 31, 2009. The final results are currently due no later than January 13, 2011. Extension of Time Limit For the Final Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘Act’’), requires that the Department issue the final results of an administrative review within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. If it is not practicable to complete the review within that time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the deadline for the final results to a maximum of 180 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the final results within this time limit because the Department is in the process of conducting the verification of a mandatory respondent and needs additional time to complete this verification and issue its final determination. In addition, the extension of the briefing schedule for surrogate values and company-specific issues in this proceeding necessitates additional time for the Department to make its final determination. As a result, the Department finds that it is not practicable to complete verification, to review the surrogate value data, and to analyze the case brief comments within the scheduled time limit. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is fully extending the time for the completion of the final results of this review to March 14, 2011.

Extension of Time Limit For the Final Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(``Act''), requires that the Department issue the final results of an 
administrative review within 120 days after the date on which the 
preliminary results are published. If it is not practicable to complete 
the review within that time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act 
allows the Department to extend the deadline for the final results to a 
maximum of 180 days after the date on which the preliminary results are 
published.
    The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the 
final results within this time limit because the Department is in the 
process of conducting the verification of a mandatory respondent and 
needs additional time to complete this verification and issue its final 
determination. In addition, the extension of the briefing schedule for 
surrogate values and company-specific issues in this proceeding 
necessitates additional time for the Department to make its final 
determination. As a result, the Department finds that it is not 
practicable to complete verification, to review the surrogate value 
data, and to analyze the case brief comments within the scheduled time 
limit. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, 
the Department is fully extending the time for the completion of the 
final results of this review to March 14, 2011.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
