of China: Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Review

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

DATES: Effective Date: December 30, 2011.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Patricia Tran, AD/CVD Operations,

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On May 29, 2009 the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published in the Federal Register the countervailing duty order on 
citric acid and certain citrate salts from the People's Republic of 
China (PRC). See Countervailing Duty Orders and Amendments of Final 
Affirmative Countervailing Duty Determinations: Citric Acid and Certain 
Citrate Salts, 74 FR 25705 (May 29, 2009). On May 2, 2011, the 
Department published a notice of ``Opportunity to Request 
Administrative Review'' of this countervailing duty order. See 
Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended 
Investigation; Opportunity To Request Administrative Review, 76 FR 
24460 (May 2, 2011). In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), we 
published a notice of initiation of the administrative review on June 
28, 2011, for the January 1, 2010, through December 31, 2010, period of 
review (POR). See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 76 FR 37781 
(June 28, 2011). The preliminary results for this review are currently 
due no later than January 31, 2012.

Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), requires the Department to issue the preliminary results of an 
administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the 
anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested. If it is 
not practicable to issue the preliminary results within 245 days, 
section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend this 
deadline to a maximum of 365 days.
    Because the Department will require additional time to review and 
analyze questionnaire responses from the Government of the People's 
Republic of China and the respondent, RZBC Co., Ltd., and its 
affiliates, and may issue supplemental questionnaires, it is not 
practicable to complete the preliminary results within the original 
deadline (i.e., January 31, 2012). Therefore, the Department is 
extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results by 
120 days to not later than May 30, 2012, in accordance with section 
751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: December 21, 2011.
Christian Marsh,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations.
