SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

The Department of Commerce (the Department) received a request on August 30, 2002, from Bethlehem Steel Corporation, National Steel Corporation, and United States Steel Corporation (petitioners) for an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on corrosion-resistant carbon steel flat products from Canada, with respect to Stelco, Inc. (Stelco) and Dofasco, Inc. (Dofasco). On September 25, 2002, the Department published a notice of initiation of this administrative review for the period of August 1, 2001, through July 31, 2002 (67 FR 60210).

Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results

Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department shall issue preliminary results in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the order. The Act further provides, however, that the Department may extend that 245-day period to 365 days if it determines it is not practicable to complete the review within the foregoing time period.

In light of the complexity of analyzing Stelco and Dofasco's cost calculations, and Stelco's inputs obtained from affiliated parties, it is not practicable to complete this review by the current deadline of May 3, 2003.

Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time limit for the preliminary results by 120 days, until no later than August 31, 2003. However, as this date falls on a weekend, the due date will fall on the next business day, September 1, 2003. The final results continue to be due 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results.

This notice is issued and published in accordance to sections 751(a)(1) and 777(I)(1) of the Act.
