This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

Notice of extension of time limit for the preliminary results of antidumping duty administrative review.
The Department of Commerce (“the Department”) is extending the time limit for the preliminary results of the antidumping duty administrative review of structural steel beams (“SSB”) from Korea.
April 17, 2003.Start Further Info
FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:
Stephen Bailey or Aishe Allen AD/CVD Enforcement Group III, Office 9, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-1102 or (202) 482-0172 respectively.
Background: On August 6, 2002, the Department published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on SSB from Korea. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 67 FR 50856 (August 6, 2002). On August 30, 2002, Dongkuk Steel Mill Co., Ltd. (“DSM”) and INI Steel Company (“INI”), Korean producers of subject merchandise, requested that the Department conduct an administrative review of their sales of subject merchandise during the period of review (“POR”). Also, on August 30, 2002, petitioners  requested that the Department conduct an administrative review of INI. On September 25, 2002, the Department published a notice of initiation of a review of SSB from Korea covering the period August 1, 2001 through July 31, 2002. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, (67 FR 60210) (September 25, 2002). The Department's preliminary results are currently due on May 3, 2003.
Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results
Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”), and section 351.213(h)(2) of the Department's regulations, state that if it is not practicable to complete the review within the time specified, the administering authority may extend the 245-day period to issue its preliminary results by up to 120 days. Completion of the preliminary results of this review within the 245-day period is not practicable because the review involves significant affiliation issues, and a large number of transactions for each company (i.e., DSM and INI). Additionally, the Department is investigating sales and cost for both companies which require the Department to gather and analyze a significant amount of information pertaining to each company's sales practices, manufacturing costs and corporate relationships.
Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, and section 351.213(h)(2) of the Department's regulations, the Department is extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of review by 120 days until August 31, 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 with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, and Section 351.213(h)(2) of the Department's regulations.Start Signature
