in Part, 76 FR 53404 (August 26, 2011).

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results

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

results to a maximum of 365 days after the last day of the anniversary 
month.
    We determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary

addition, the numerous extensions we have granted for filing various 
responses has contributed to us requiring additional time to complete 
the preliminary results.

the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).
