On June 30, 2000, the Department received a timely request from Kawasaki Steel Corporation to conduct an administrative review pursuant to section 351.213(b)(2) of the Department's regulations. We published a notice of initiation of this antidumping duty administrative review on hot-rolled steel on July 31, 2000 (64 FR 46687). On July 10, 2001, the Department published the preliminary results of this antidumping administrative review. See Hot-Rolled Flat-Rolled Carbon-Quality Steel Products from Japan: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Administrative Review, 66 FR 35928 (July 10, 2001). The final results of this review are currently due November 7, 2001.
Extension of Time Limits for Final Results
Due to extensive arguments on cost issues, and the complexities involved in analyzing the level of trade issue in this review, it is not practicable to complete the review within the initial time limits mandated by section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. Therefore, we are extending the due date for the final results of this review until January 7, 2002.Start Signature
