SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: emcdonald on DSK2BSOYB1PROD with NOTICES Amended Final Results On September 12, 2007, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published the final results of its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp (shrimp) from Thailand. See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Thailand: Final Results and Final Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 72 FR 52065 (Sept. 12, 2007). The period of review (POR) is August 4, 2004, through January 31, 2006. As part of this decision, the Department assigned an adverse facts available (AFA) rate to Gallant Ocean (Thailand) Co., Ltd. (Gallant Ocean), an exporter of Thai shrimp to the United States. The application of AFA was necessitated by the fact that Gallant Ocean failed to cooperate with the Department by ignoring multiple requests for information. Following the publication of the final results, Gallant Ocean filed a lawsuit with the United States Court of International Trade (CIT) challenging the Department’s final results of administrative review. See Gallant Ocean (Thailand) Co., Ltd. v. United States, Court No. 07–00360. In January 2009, the CIT found that the Department’s decision was supported by substantial evidence and in accordance with law, and thus it sustained this decision in all respects. See Gallant Ocean (Thailand) Co., Ltd v. United States, 602 F. Supp. 2d 1337 (CIT 2009). VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:16 Feb 04, 2011 Jkt 223001 Gallant Ocean then appealed the CIT’s decision before the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC). On April 16, 2010, the CAFC agreed with Gallant Ocean and vacated the CIT’s ruling. The CAFC ordered the CIT to remand it back to the Department ‘‘for further proceedings consistent with this opinion.’’ See Gallant Ocean, 602 F.3d at 1325, corrected June 30, 2010. On October 20, 2010, the Department issued its final results of redetermination pursuant to the CAFC’s ruling. See Gallant Ocean (Thailand) Co., Ltd v. United States, Final Results of Redetermination Pursuant to Court Remand (Oct. 20, 2010). The United States and Gallant Ocean have now entered into an agreement to settle this dispute. Pursuant to the terms of the agreement between the United States and Gallant Ocean, we will liquidate Gallant Ocean’s entries during the POR at the 12.55 percent rate agreed to by the parties. We are issuing this determination and publishing these amended final results and notice in accordance with 19 U.S.C. 1516a(e). Dated: January 31, 2011.

Results of the 2008-2009 Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty 
Order

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

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On October 26, 2009, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
initiated the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on 
certain new pneumatic off-the-road tires (``OTR tires'') from the 
People's Republic of China (``PRC'') for the period February 20, 2008, 
through August 31, 2009. See Initiation of Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation 
in Part, 74 FR 54956 (October 26, 2009). On October 19, 2010, the 
Department published its preliminary results of the administrative 
review of the antidumping order on OTR tires from the PRC. See Certain 
New Pneumatic Off-the-Road Tires From the People's Republic of China: 
Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 75 FR 
64259 (October 19, 2010). The final results are currently due no later 
than February 16, 2011.

Extension of Time Limit for Final Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires the Department to issue the final results in an 
administrative review within 120 days after the date on which the 
preliminary results are published. However, if it is not practicable to 
complete the review within this time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of 
the Act allows the Department to extend the time period to a maximum of 
180 days.
    We determine that it is not practicable to complete the final 
results of this review within the current deadline because the 
Department continues to require additional time to analyze issues 
raised in recent surrogate value submissions, verification exhibits, 
and case briefs and rebuttals. Therefore, we are extending the time 
limit for completion of the final results by 30 days, in accordance 
with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. An extension of 30 days from the 
current deadline of February 16, 2011, would result in a new deadline 
of March 18, 2011. As such, the final results are now due no later than 
March 18, 2011.
    This notice is published pursuant to sections 751(a) and 777(i) of 
the Act.

    Dated: January 31, 2011.
Christian Marsh,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations.
