On September 6, 2000, the Department published its notice of initiation of an antidumping duty review of the antidumping duty order on stainless steel sheet and strip in coils from Japan. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 65 FR 53980, 53981 (September 6, 2000). On January 31, 2001, the Department published its notice partially extending the time limit for the preliminary results of the review by 90 days. See Extension of Time Limit for the Preliminary Results of the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Stainless Steel Sheet and Strip in Coils from Japan, 66 FR 8385 (January 31, 2001). Under section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department may extend the deadline for completion of the preliminary results of a review if it determines that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results within the statutory time limit of 245 days after the date on which the review is initiated. The Department has determined that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of the review within that statutory time limit. See Memorandum from Edward C. Yang to Joseph A.

Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time limit for the preliminary results by 30 days until July 31, 2001.
