AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (``Department'') is extending the 
time limit for the preliminary results of the new shipper review of 
certain frozen warmwater shrimp (``shrimp'') from the Socialist 
Republic of Vietnam (``Vietnam''). The period of review for this review 
is February 1, 2010, through July 31, 2010.

9, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. 
Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., 
Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-0413.

Background

    On October 1, 2010, the Department published a notice of initiation 
of the new shipper review in the antidumping duty order on shrimp from 
Vietnam for Quoc Viet Seaproducts Processing Trading and Import-Export 
Co., Ltd. (``Quoc Viet''). See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from the 
Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Initiation of Antidumping Duty New 
Shipper Review, 75 FR 60730 (October 1, 2010). The preliminary results 
of this review are currently due no later than March 19, 2011.

Statutory Time Limits

    Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
``Act''), and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(1) require the Department to issue the 
preliminary results of a new shipper review within 180 days after the 
date on which the new shipper review was initiated and final results 
within 90 days after the date on which the preliminary results are 
issued. However, the Department may extend the deadline for completion 
of the preliminary results of a new shipper review to 300 days if it 
determines that the case is extraordinarily complicated. See 19 CFR

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Review

    The Department has determined that the review is extraordinarily 
complicated as the Department must issue, and analyze the responses to, 
additional supplemental questionnaires concerning Quoc Viet's sales 
practices and its shrimp factors of production usage ratio. Moreover, 
the Department needs additional time to analyze the bona fide nature of 
Quoc Viet's sale, which includes gathering data from U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection. Based on the timing of the case and the additional 
information that must be gathered, the preliminary results of this new 
shipper review cannot be completed within 180 days.
    Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit for 
completion of the preliminary results of this new shipper review by 26 
days from the original March 19, 2011, deadline. The preliminary 
results will now be due no later than April 14, 2011. The final results 
continue to be due 90 days after the issuance of the preliminary 
results.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) and 777(i) of the Act.
