SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

At the request of interested parties, the Department of Commerce

(the Department) initiated an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on solid urea from the Russian Federation for the period

July 1, 2009, through June 30, 2010. See Initiation of Antidumping and

Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Deferral of Initiation of Administrative Review, 75 FR 53274 (August 31, 2010). The preliminary results of this administrative review are currently due no later than April 2, 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 complete the preliminary results within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested and the final results within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published in the

Federal Register. If it is not practicable

Page 17381

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 results 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 April 2, 2011, because we require additional time to analyze a complex affiliation issue pertaining to the exporter subject to this administrative review.

Therefore, we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of this review by 75 days to June 16, 2011.

This notice is published in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).

Dated: March 23, 2011.

Gary Taverman,

Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing

Duty Operations.
