Because it is not practicable to complete this administrative review within the time limits mandated by section 751(a)(3)(A) of Tariff Act of 1930, as amended by the Uruguay Round Agreements Act, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results. This review involves a number of complicated issues including high inflation in Turkey during the period of review. Moreover, the petitioners requested that the Department conduct verification, pursuant to section 782(i)(3)(A) of the Act. Therefore, we intend to verify the sales and cost information submitted by the four respondents. Because the Department will not be able to conduct verification before the scheduled preliminary results, we have extended the deadline until April 30, 2001.
This extension is in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act (19 Start Printed Page 60170U.S.C. 1675(a)(3)(A)) and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).Start Signature
