SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce is extending the time limits of the 
preliminary results of the antidumping duty new shipper review of 
static random access memory semiconductors from Taiwan. The review 
covers one manufacturer/exporter of the subject merchandise to the 
United States for the period October 1, 1997, through September 30, 

EFFECTIVE DATE: May 24, 1999.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Shawn Thompson or Sergio Gonzalez,

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On December 7, 1998, the Department of 
Commerce (the Department) initiated a new shipper review relating to 
the antidumping duty order on static random access memory 
semiconductors from Taiwan, covering the period October 1, 1997, 
through September 30, 1998 (63 FR 67456). Therefore, the current 
deadline for the preliminary results of this new shipper review is June 
7, 1999. Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(the Act), requires the Department to issue preliminary results within 
180 days after the date on which the new shipper review was initiated. 
However, when the Department determines that a case is extraordinarily 
complicated, it may extend the 180-day period to 300 days, according to 
19 CFR 351.214(i)(2), (62 FR 27296, 27396 (1997)). Pursuant to section 
751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act, the Department has determined that this 
case is extraordinarily complicated, given that extra time is needed to 
analyze complex sales and difference in merchandise issues. For further 
discussion see memorandum to Robert S. LaRussa dated May 17, 1999.
    Thus, in accordance with the statutory and regulatory authority 

[[Page 27967]]

above, the Department is extending the deadline for issuing the 
preliminary results of this new shipper review by 120 days to no later 
than October 4, 1999. We plan to issue the final results within 90 days 
after the date the preliminary results are issued. This extension is in 
accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act.

    Dated: May 17, 1999.
Bernard Carreau,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
