The Applicable Statute
Unless otherwise indicated, all citations to the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act) are to the provisions effective January 1, 1995, the effective date of the amendments made to the Act by the Uruguay Round Agreements Act. In addition, unless otherwise indicated, all citations to the Department's regulations are to 19 CFR part 351 (2000).
On August 11, 1995, the Department published in the Federal Register an antidumping duty order on oil country tubular goods, other than drill pipe, (OCTG) from Korea (60 FR 41057). On August 31, 2000, the Department received a timely request from SeAH 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 OCTG on October 2, 2000 (65 FR 58733).
The Department subsequently determined it was not practicable to complete the review within the standard time frame, and extended the deadline for completion of the preliminary results for this antidumping duty administrative review. See Oil Country Tubular Goods from Korea: Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Antidumping Administrative Review, 66 FR 23232 (May 8, 2001). On September 10, 2001, the Department published the preliminary results of this administrative review. See Oil Country Tubular Goods From Korea: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 66 FR 46999 (September 10, 2001).
Extension of Time Limits for Final Results
Due to the need to analyze comments on inland freight expenses and indirect selling expenses, 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 March 9, 2002.Start Signature
Dated: December 13, 2001.
