SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: emcdonald on DSK29S0YB1PROD with NOTICES Background On June 28, 2011, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published the initiation of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on citric acid and certain citrate salts (‘‘citric acid’’) from the People’s Republic of China 4 September 29, 2012, is a Saturday. Department practice dictates that where a deadline falls on a weekend or federal holiday, the appropriate deadline is 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). Accordingly, the Department will issue the preliminary results on October 1, 2012. VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:39 Apr 13, 2012 Jkt 226001 (‘‘PRC’’).1 On January 10, 2012, the Department published the extension of time limit for the preliminary results of the administrative review.2 This review covers the period May 1, 2010, through April 30, 2011. The preliminary results of review are currently due no later than April 30, 2012. Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Review Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), the Department shall make a preliminary determination in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the order. The Act further provides, however, that the Department may extend that 245-day period to 365 days if it determines it is not practicable to complete the review within the foregoing time period. The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of the administrative review of citric acid from the PRC within this time limit. Specifically, additional time is needed to evaluate relevant evidence and parties’ comments regarding the selection of appropriate surrogate values with which to value the factors of production. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is fully extending the time period for completion of the preliminary results of this review by an additional 30 days. The preliminary results will now be due no later than May 30, 2012. This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act. Dated: April 9, 2012.

In the ‘‘Scope of Investigation’’ section of the Initiation Notice, the Department omitted a word and used an incomplete Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) number. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On March 1, 2012, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) received a countervailing duty (‘‘CVD’’) petition concerning imports of drawn stainless steel sinks from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) filed in proper form by Elkay Manufacturing Company.

On March 27, 2012, the Department published the Initiation Notice for the investigation. The first paragraph of the ‘‘Scope of Investigation’’ section of the Initiation Notice stated the following: ‘‘Stainless steel sinks with multiple bowls that are joined through a welding operation to form one unit are covered by the scope of the investigation.’’ See Initiation Notice, 77 FR at 18212. The Department inadvertently omitted the word ‘‘drawn’’ from this sentence, as follows: ‘‘Stainless steel sinks with multiple drawn bowls that are joined through a welding operation to form one unit are covered by the scope of the investigation.’’ Furthermore, the last sentence of the ‘‘Scope of Investigation’’ section stated the following: ‘‘The products covered by the investigation are currently classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) under statistical reporting number 7324.10.000.’’ The Department inadvertently omitted a zero from the end of this HTSUS number. The correct HTSUS number is 7324.10.0000.
