Extension of Final Results of Reviews

On June 1, 2004, the Department initiated sunset reviews of the antidumping duty orders on SSSS from Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, Taiwan and the United Kingdom, and the countervailing duty order on SSSS from Korea. See Initiation of Five-Year (Sunset) Reviews, 69 FR 30874 (June 1, 2004). The Department, in these proceedings, determined that it would conduct expedited sunset reviews of these orders based on inadequate responses to the notice of initiation from respondent interested parties. The Department's final results of these reviews were scheduled for September 29, 2004. The Department, however, needs additional time to: Consider issues related to the appropriate margin(s) of dumping likely to prevail if the order is revoked which the Department will provide to the International Trade Commission, with respect to the antidumping duty orders on SSSS from Germany, Italy, Korea, Taiwan and the United Kingdom; take into account the large number of companies, with respect to the antidumping order on SSSS from Japan; and address the large number of issues and companies, with respect to the countervailing duty order on SSSS from Korea. Thus, the Department intends to issue the final results on or about November 15, 2004, in accordance with sections 751(c)(5)(B) and 751(c)(5)(C)(i), (ii) and (iii) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended.
