Background

    On January 25, 2011, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
published in the Federal Register the Preliminary Results of the 
seventh new shipper reviews of certain frozen fish fillets from the 
Socialist Republic of Vietnam covering the period August 1, 2009, 
through February 15, 2010.\1\ Subsequent to the publication of the 
Preliminary Results, the Department extended the deadlines for 
submission of surrogate values, case briefs, and rebuttal comments.\2\ 
The final results are currently due no later than April 14, 2011.

of Vietnam: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty New Shipper 
Reviews, 76 FR 4292 (January 25, 2011) (``Preliminary Results'').
    \2\ See Letter from Alex Villanueva, Program Manager, Office 9, 
to Interested Parties: Extending Surrogate Value Submission & 
Briefing Schedule for New Shipper Reviews of Certain Frozen Fish 
Fillets from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (February 10, 2011).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Extension of Time Limit for the Final Results

    Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(``Act''), and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(1) require the Department to issue the 
final results in a new shipper review of an antidumping duty order 90 
days after the date on which the preliminary results are issued. The 
Department may, however, extend the deadline for completion of the 
final results of a new shipper review to 150 days if it determines that 
the case is extraordinarily complicated. See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) 
of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2).
    The Department finds this case to be extraordinarily complicated 
because there is voluminous new material on the record regarding the 
surrogate value of whole fish that has not yet been considered in a 
completed review. The Department will need more time to analyze the 
data. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the 
Act, we are extending the time for the completion of the final results 
of this review by 60 days to June 13, 2011.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: March 3, 2011.
Gary Taverman,
Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Operations.
