SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Following the Preliminary Results, on June 17, 2011, the Department requested clarification from Archer Daniels Midland Company; Cargill, Incorporated; and Tate & Lyle Americas (collectively, ‘‘Petitioners’’) regarding Petitioners’ request for business proprietary treatment for certain alternative financial statements they had submitted on May 13 and May 19, 2011, which Petitioners reported as originating with the respondents. Petitioners provided the requested clarification on June 24, 2011. On July 12, 2011, the Department asked Petitioners to grant respondents direct access to the alternative financial statements. The Department further stated that if Petitioners did not agree to this disclosure, it would return the submissions to Petitioners. On July 25, 2011, Petitioners refiled the May 13, and May 19, 2011 submissions without the alternative financial statements. The Department issued additional supplemental questionnaires to the Government of the People’s Republic of China (‘‘GOC’’), RZBC and Yixing in July through October 2011, and received timely responses from all three parties. However, the Department returned two GOC responses to the July 21, 2011 supplemental questionnaire because they contained unsolicited new factual information. From August 29 through September 2, 2011, we conducted a verification of RZBC’s questionnaire responses, and from September 5 through September 9, 2011, we conducted a verification of Yixing’s questionnaire responses. The Department released its verification reports for RZBC and Yixing to interested parties on October 17, 2011.1 1 See Memorandum from Taija Slaughter and Jeff Pederson to the File ‘‘Verification Report of the Response of RZBC Co., Ltd., RZBC Import & Export Co., Ltd., & RZBC (Juxian) Co., Ltd. in the Countervailing Duty Administrative Review of Citric Acid and Certain Citrate Salts from the PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The Department issued a preliminary creditworthiness determination for RZBC for years 2006 through 2009 on September 29, 2011.2 On October 11, 2011, the Department issued a preliminary creditworthiness determination with respect to the Yixing for years 2004 and 2005.3 The Department completed a postpreliminary analysis of seven subsidy programs reported by RZBC, and issued its preliminary findings on these programs on October 13, 2011.4 In the Preliminary Results, we invited interested parties to submit briefs.

Background

    On September 12, 2011, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
published in the Federal Register its Preliminary Results of the 
antidumping duty order on certain steel nails (``steel nails'') from 
the People's Republic of China (``PRC'').\1\ The period of review

(``Preliminary Results'').

Extension of Time Limit for the Final Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(``Act''), requires that the Department issue the final results of an 
administrative review within 120 days after the date on which the 
preliminary results are published. If it is not practicable to complete 
the review within that time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act 
allows the Department to extend the deadline for the final results to a 
maximum of 180 days after the date on which the preliminary results are 
published.

[[Page 77206]]

    Subsequent to the Preliminary Results, the Department issued 
questionnaires requesting more information from the tollers/sub-
contractors and extended the deadlines for the case and rebuttal 
briefs. As a result, the Department finds that it is not practicable to 
complete the process of reviewing the post-preliminary questionnaires, 
case briefs, and surrogate values within the scheduled time limit. 
Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the 
Department is partially extending the time for the completion of the 
final results of this review by 30 days to February 9, 2012.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
