On December 26, 2002, the Department published a notice of initiation of administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain circular welded non-alloy steel pipe from Korea, covering the period November 1, 2001, through October 31, 2002. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, (67 FR 78772). The preliminary results for this review are currently due no later than August 2, 2003.
Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results
Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act requires the Department to issue the preliminary results of an administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested and a final determination within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. If it is not practicable to complete the review within the time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend these deadlines to a maximum of 365 days and 180 days, respectively.
We are currently analyzing sales and cost information provided by the three respondents in this review and are awaiting supplemental information. In addition, we plan to verify the sales and cost information provided by the respondents in accordance with 19 CFR 351.307 (b)(1)(v). Accordingly, it is not practicable to complete this review within the originally anticipated time limit (i.e., August 2, 2003). Therefore, the Department of Commerce is extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results to not later than December 1, 2003, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.
We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.Start Signature
