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

DATES: Effective Date: March 9, 2011.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Hermes Pinilla, AD/CVD Operations,

Background

    On May 28, 2010, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on magnesium metal from the Russian Federation 
for the period April 1, 2009, through March 31, 2010. See Initiation of 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 75 FR 29976 
(May 28, 2010). On December 17, 2010, the Department extended by 75 
days the preliminary results of the administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on magnesium metal from the Russian Federation. 
See Magnesium Metal From the Russian Federation: Extension of Time 
Limit for Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative 
Review, 75 FR 78968 (December 17, 2010). The preliminary results of 
this administrative review are currently due no later than March 16, 
2011.

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), requires the Department to make a preliminary determination 
within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order 
for which a review is requested and a final determination within 120 
days after the date on which the preliminary determination is published 
in the Federal Register. If it is not practicable to complete the 
review within these time periods, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act 
allows the Department to extend the time limit for the preliminary 
determination 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 
results of this review by the current deadline of March 16, 2011, 
because we require additional time to analyze a number of complex 
corporate-affiliation issues relating to this administrative review. In 
addition, the numerous extensions we have granted for filing various 
responses has contributed to us requiring additional time to complete 
the preliminary results.
    Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 
19 CFR 351.213(h)(2), we are extending the time period for issuing the 
preliminary results of this review by 45 days to April 30, 2011. 
Because April 30, 2011, falls on a Saturday, it is the Department's 
practice to issue a determination the next business day when the 
statutory deadline falls on a weekend, federal holiday, or any other 
day when the Department is closed. 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 deadline 
for completion of the preliminary results is now May 2, 2011.
    This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) 
and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: March 3, 2011.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations.
