Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results
Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act states that if it is not practicable to complete the review within the time specified, the administering authority may extend the 120-day period, following the date of publication of the preliminary determination, to issue its final results by an additional 60 days. Completion of the final results within the 120-day period is not practicable for the following reasons:
- This review involves certain complex issues (i.e., identification of home market sales).
- Yieh United Steel Corporation has been instructed to revise certain significant portions of its responses during this review.
- The review involves a large number of transactions and complex adjustments.
- The review involves middleman dumping issues.
Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time period for issuing the final determination of review by 60 days until February 4, 2002.Start Signature
