AGENCY: Background On August 2, 2010, the Department published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review on the antidumping order on certain steel nails from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) for the period of review (‘‘POR’’) August 1, 2009, through July 31, 2010. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity To Request Administrative Review, 75 FR 45094 (August 2, 2010). Based upon requests for review from various parties, on September 29, 2010, the Department initiated the first antidumping duty administrative review on certain steel nails from the PRC, covering 222 companies. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 75 FR 60076 (September 29, 2010) (‘‘Initiation Notice’’). On April 28, 2011, the Department published a notice of a partial rescission and an extension of the time period for issuing the preliminary results by 90 days, to August 1, 2011. See Certain Steel Nails From the Peoples’ Republic of China: Notice of Extension of Time Limits and Partial Rescission of the Second Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 76 FR 23788 (April 28, 2011). On July 11, 2011, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(j), we aligned the concurrent new shipper review of Shanghai Colour Nail Co., Ltd. with the second administrative review. Statutory Time Limits Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘Act’’), requires the Department to make a preliminary PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 determination within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested and a final determination 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 time limit for the preliminary determination to a maximum of 365 days after the last day of the anniversary month. Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Review We determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of these reviews within the current time limits. The Department requires additional time to analyze recently submitted supplemental questionnaire responses, which contained a significant amount of new sales and factors of production data. The additional time is needed to consider these data and their incorporation into the margin calculations for the individuallyreviewed respondents, as well as to consider all of the issues raised by parties during the course of these proceedings. Therefore, the Department is hereby fully extending the time limits for completion of the preliminary results by 30 days. The preliminary results will now be due no later than August 31, 2011. The final results continue to be due 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results. This notice is published in accordance with section 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: July 28, 2011.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On June 30, 2010, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') 
published the initiation of the administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on citric acid and certain citrate salts 
(``citric acid'') from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''). See 
Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative 
Reviews and Deferral of Administrative Review, 75 FR 37759 (June 30, 
2010). On June 10, 2011, the Department published the preliminary 
results of the first administrative review of the antidumping duty 
order of citric acid from the PRC. See Citric Acid and Certain Citrate 
Salts From the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results of the 
First Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty Order; and Partial 
Rescission of Administrative Review, 76 FR 34048 (June 10, 2011). This 
review covers the periods November 20, 2008, through May 19, 2009, and 
May 29, 2009, through April 30, 2010. The final results of this review 
are currently due no later than October 8, 2011.

Extension of Time Limit for Final Results of Review

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (``the Act''), the Department shall make a final determination 
in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order within 120 
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 120-day period to 180 days if it determines 
it is not practicable to complete the review within the foregoing time 
period.
    The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the 
final results of the administrative review of citric acid from the PRC 
within this time limit. Specifically, additional time is needed to 
examine respondents' production process, factors of production, and 
financial statements. Furthermore, the Department requires additional 
time to prepare for on-site verifications of respondent companies. 
Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the 
Department is fully extending the time period for completion of the 
final results of this review, which is currently due on October 8, 
2011, by 60 days. Therefore, the final results are now due no later 
than December 7, 2011.
    This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) 
and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: July 22, 2011.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations.
