SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

[[Page 15719]]

Background

    On August 26, 2011, the U.S. Department of Commerce (Department) 
published a notice of initiation of administrative review of the 
countervailing duty order on certain pasta from Italy, covering the 
period January 1, 2010, through December 31, 2010. See Initiation of 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests 
for Revocation in Part, 76 FR 53404 (August 26, 2011). The preliminary 
results of this administrative review are currently due no later than 
April 1, 2012.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Because April 1, 2012 is a Sunday, the preliminary results 
of this review would be due no later than the next business day. See 
Notice of Clarification: Application of ``Next Business Day'' Rule 
for Administrative Determination Deadlines Pursuant to the Tariff 
Act of 1930, As Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Statutory Time Limits

    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 a countervailing duty order for which a review is 
requested and issue the 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 the time period, section 
751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend these deadlines 
to a maximum of 365 days and 180 days, respectively. See also 19 CFR 
351.213(h).

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results

    Because the Department will require additional time to review and 
analyze submitted information from the Government of Italy and the 
respondent company, Molino e Pastifico Tomasello, S.p.A., and to issue 
supplemental questionnaires, it is not practicable to complete the 
preliminary results of this review within the original time limit. 
Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of 
the preliminary results by 120 days. The preliminary results will now 
be due no later than July 30, 2012.
    This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 
751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: March 9, 2012.
