SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the ‘‘Department’’) is extending the time limit for the preliminary results of the new shipper review of uncovered innerspring units (‘‘innersprings’’) from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’). The period of review for this review is February 1, 2010, through August 4, 2010. AGENCY: Effective Date: July 20, 2011.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Background On October 7, 2010 the Department published a notice of initiation in the Federal Register of the new shipper review in the antidumping duty order on innersprings from the PRC for Foshan Nanhai Jiujiang Quan Li Spring Hardware Factory (‘‘Quan Li’’) and Foshan Yongnuo Import & Export Co., Ltd. (‘‘Yongnuo’’).1 On March 28, 2011, 1 See Uncovered Innerspring Units from the People’s Republic of China: Initiation of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review, 75 FR 62107 (October 7, 2010).

[FR Doc. 2011–18304 Filed 7–19–11; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 3510–DS–P Statutory Time Limits Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the ‘‘Act’’), and section 351.214(i)(1) of the Department’s regulations 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.4 Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Review [A–570–928] DATES: the Department extended the deadline for the preliminary results of this review to June 1, 2011.2 On June 13, 2011, the Department extended the deadline for the preliminary results of this review to July 15, 2011.3 43263 The Department has determined that the review is extraordinarily complicated as the Department must analyze the responses to supplemental questionnaires concerning Quan Li’s and Yongnuo’s sales practices and factors of production. Moreover, the Department needs additional time to analyze the bona fide nature of Quan Li’s and Yongnuo’s sales, 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 the current time limits. Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results of this new shipper review by an additional 11 days from the July 15, 2011, deadline. As a result, the preliminary results will now be due no later than July 26, 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. 2 See Uncovered Innerspring Units from the People’s Republic of China: Extension of Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review, 76 FR 17107 (March 28, 2011). 3 See Uncovered Innerspring Units from the People’s Republic of China: Extension of Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review, 76 FR 34207 (June 13, 2011). 4 See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act; see also section 351.214(i)(2) of the Department’s regulations.
