Background

    On June 8, 2011, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the 
countervailing duty order on citric acid and certain citrate sales from 
People's Republic of China, covering the period September 19, 2008,

administrative review no later than 120 days after the date of 
publication of the Preliminary Results.

Statutory Time Limits

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the

Extension of Time Limits for Final Results

    The Department has determined that completion of the final results 
of this review within the original time period (i.e., by October 6, 
2011) is not practicable. We are currently verifying the responses of 
the respondents, and will require time to write verification reports 
and allow interested parties adequate time to comment. Also, in the 
instant review, the Department needs additional time to conduct a post-
preliminary analysis of lending programs, the respondents' 
creditworthiness, and inputs supplied for less than adequate 
remuneration. See Preliminary Results, 76 FR at 33238. Therefore, the 
Department is extending the time limit for completion of the final 
results to not later than December 5, 2011, which is 180 days from the
