Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 165 / Thursday, August 25, 2011 / Notices 1, 2009, through June 30, 2010.1 The final results of administrative review are currently due August 27, 2011. Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires that the Department issue final results 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. Completion of the final results of the administrative review within the 120day period is not practicable because the Department needs additional time to analyze complex issues regarding affiliation and knowledge of U.S. destination. Given the complexity of these issues, and in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, we are extending the time period for issuing the final results of this review to 180 days. Therefore, the final results are now due no later than October 26, 2011. We are publishing this notice pursuant to sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: August 19, 2011.
