Therefore, the final results of this review will be due on May 9, 2011. 1 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 75 FR 29976 (May 28, 2010). VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:30 Jan 06, 2011 Jkt 223001 of review are due no later than December 31, 2010. Because December 31, 2010, falls on a Federal holiday, a non-business day, the deadline for the preliminary results reverts to January 3, 2011, the next business day following the Federal holiday.2 Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), the Department shall make a preliminary determination in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the order. The Act further provides, however, that the Department may extend that 245-day period to 365 days if it determines it is not practicable to complete the review within the foregoing time period. We determine that completion of the preliminary results of this review within the 245-day period is not practicable because the Department requires additional time to analyze information pertaining to the respondent’s sales practices, factors of production, and to issue and review responses to supplemental questionnaires. Therefore, we require additional time to complete these preliminary results. As a result, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time period for completion of the preliminary results of this review by 120 days until April 30, 2011. However, April 30, 2011, falls on a weekend, and it is the Department’s long-standing practice to issue a determination on the next business day when the statutory deadline falls on a weekend.3 Accordingly, the deadline for completion of the preliminary results of the review is now no later than May 2, 2011. This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act. Dated: December 30, 2010.

correcting certain inaccuracies. We received no substantive responses 
from respondent interested parties. We determined the response of the 
domestic interested parties to be an adequate substantive response in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3). As a result, pursuant to section 
751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), the 
Department conducted an expedited (120-day) sunset review of the

strip from the Republic of Korea.

Scope of the Order

    Imports covered by the order are shipments of all gauges of raw, 
pretreated, or primed polyethylene terephthalate film, sheet, and 
strip, whether extruded or coextruded. The films excluded from this 
review are metallized films and other finished films that have had at 
least one of their surfaces modified by the application of a 
performance-enhancing resinous or inorganic layer more than 0.00001 
inches (0.254 micrometers) thick.
    Polyethylene terephthalate film, sheet, and strip is currently 
classifiable under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States 
(HTSUS) subheading 3920.62.00. The HTSUS subheading is provided for 
convenience and for customs purposes. The written description remains

Final Results of Review

    We determine that revocation of the antidumping duty order on 
polyethylene terephthalate film, sheet and strip from the Republic of 
Korea would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping 
at the following weighted-average percentage margins:
