Statutory Time Limits
Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Tariff Act) requires the Department of Commerce (the Department) to make a preliminary determination within 245 days after the last day of the month in which occurs the anniversary of the date of the order, or, if it is not practicable to complete the review within this time period, within 365 days.
On March 22, 2001, the Department published in the Federal Register the notice of initiation of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain stainless steel flanges from India, covering the period February 1, 2000 through January 31, 2001 (Initiation of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 66 FR 16037, March 22, 2001). The preliminary results are currently due no later than October 31, 2001. The respondents are Echjay Forgings Ltd. (with affiliate Pushpaman), Isibars, Ltd., Panchmahal Steel Ltd., Patheja Forgings & Auto Parts, Ltd., and Viraj Forgings, Ltd.
Extension of Time Limit
The Department has determined that because this review involves complex issues, such as comparison market selection and model definition, it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of review within the original 245 day time limit mandated by section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act and section 351.213(h)(1) of the Department's regulations. Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results until February 28, 2002 in accordance with section 351.213(h)(2).Start Signature
