The Applicable Statute
Unless otherwise indicated, all citations to the statute are references to the provisions effective January 1, 1995, the effective date of the amendments made to the Tariff Act of 1930 (the Act) by the Uruguay Round Agreements Act. In addition, unless otherwise indicated, all citations to the Department's regulations are to the current regulations, codified at 19 CFR Part 351 (1999).
On August 19, 1993, the Department published in the Federal Register (58 FR 44162) the antidumping duty orders on certain corrosion-resistant carbon steel flat products and certain cut-to-length carbon steel plate from Canada. The Department initiated these reviews for Stelco, Inc., Dofasco, Inc., Sorevco, Inc., Continuous Colour Coat, Ltd., and National Steel Corp., (corrosion-resistant) and Clayson Steel Inc., Metaux Russel Inc. and Stelco, Inc. (cut-to-length) on October 1, 1999 (64 FR 53318). We initiated a review of Gerdau MRM Steel (cut-to-length) on November 4, 1999 (64 FR 60161). These reviews cover the period of August 1, 1998 through July 31, 1999. On April 27, 2000, the Department published an extension of these preliminary results of review until July 21, 2000 (65 FR 24678).
Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results
For the reasons described in the Memorandum from Edward C. Yang to Joseph A. Spetrini, Extension of Time Limit for the Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews of Certain Corrosion-Resistant Carbon Steel Flat Products and Certain Cut-to-Length Carbon Steel Plate From Canada, dated June 22, 2000, it is not practical to complete these reviews within the time limits mandated by section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.
Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of review until August 30, 2000.Start Signature
Dated: June 22, 2000.
