SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On December 6, 2011, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published in the Federal Register the preliminary results of the administrative reviews of the antidumping duty orders on diamond sawblades and parts thereof (diamond sawblades) from the Republic of Korea (Korea) and the People’s Republic of China (PRC). See Diamond Sawblades and Parts Thereof From the Republic of Korea: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 76 FR 76128 (December 6, 2011) (Preliminary Results—Korea) and Diamond Sawblades and Parts Thereof From the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Intent to Rescind Review in Part, 76 FR 76135 (December 6, 2011) (Preliminary Results—PRC). On March 13, 2012, we extended the deadline for the final results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on diamond sawblades from the PRC. See Diamond Sawblades and Parts Thereof From the People’s Republic of China: Extension of Time Limit for Final Results of VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:17 Apr 05, 2012 Jkt 226001 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 77 FR 14733 (March 13, 2012). The final results of the administrative reviews of the antidumping duty orders on diamond sawblades from Korea and the PRC are currently due no later than April 4, 2012, and May 14, 2012, respectively. Extension of Time Limits for the Final Results of Reviews Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires the Department to issue 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 this time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time period to a maximum of 180 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. We determine that it is not practicable to complete the final results of these reviews within the current time limits because we need additional time to consider new allegations in both the PRC and Korea proceedings. Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (‘‘Act’’) allows us to extend the deadline for the final results of these reviews to June 3, 2012, which is 180 days after the date of the publication of the Preliminary Results—Korea and the Preliminary Results—PRC. Because June 3, 2012, falls on a weekend, we shall issue the final results of these reviews on June 4, 2012.
