Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), the Department shall make a preliminary determination 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. The preliminary results are currently scheduled to be completed on December 1, 2004. However, the Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results in this administrative review of stainless steel bar from France within this time limit because additional time is needed to fully analyze the questionnaire responses and supplemental questionnaire responses submitted by the respondent and conduct a verification of the respondent in this administrative review.
Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results of this review until March 30, 2005.Start Signature
Dated: November 1, 2004.
