SUMMARY: On April 21, 2011, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) published a notice of initiation and the preliminary results of the changed circumstances review with intent to revoke, in part, the antidumping duty order 1 on certain steel nails from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) in the Federal Register.2 The Department is now revoking the Order, in part, with regard to four specific types of steel nails.

AGENCY: In antidumping duty administrative reviews, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), requires the Department to make a final determination in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within these time periods, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the 120 day period to 180 days after the preliminary results if it determines it is not practicable to complete the review within the foregoing time period. Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Review We determine that it is not practicable to complete the final results of the fifth administrative review of certain frozen warmwater shrimp from the PRC within the 120 day time limit because the Department requires additional time to analyze case and rebuttal briefs. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time period for completion of the final results of this review, which is currently due on June 14, 2011, by 60 days to 180 days after the date on which the preliminary results were published. Therefore, the final results are now due no later than August 13, 2011.1 We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act. Dated: May 18, 2011.
