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.

The Department of Commerce (the Department) published an antidumping duty order on stainless steel plate in coils (SSPC) from Taiwan on May 21, 1999 (See Antidumping Duty Orders; Certain Stainless Steel Plate in Coils From Belgium, Canada, Italy, the Republic of Korea, South Africa, and Taiwan, 64 FR 27756). On June 30, 2004, the Department published a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the order on SSPC from Taiwan for the period May 1, 2003, through April 30, 2004. See 69 FR 39409. The respondents in this administrative review are: Ta Chen Stainless Pipe Co., Ltd.; Yieh United Steel Corporation; China Steel Corporation; Tang Eng Iron Works; PFP Taiwan Co., Ltd.; Yieh Loong Enterprise Co., Ltd.; Yieh Trading Co; Goang Jau Shing Enterprise Co., Ltd.; Yieh Mau Corporation; Chien Shing Stainless Co., Ltd.; East Tack Enterprise Co., Ltd.; Shing Shong Ta Metal Ind. Co., Ltd.; Sinkang Industries, Ltd.; Chang Mien Industries Co., Ltd.; and Chain Chin Industrial Co., Ltd. On June 7, 2005, the Department published in the Federal Register the notice of its preliminary intent to rescind this review. See Stainless Steel Plate in Coils from Taiwan; Preliminary Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 70 FR 33083. A final decision is currently due no later than October 5, 2005.
Extension of the Time Limit for Final Results of Administrative Review
Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires the Department to make a final determination in an administrative review within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary determination is published. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within this time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the final results to 180 days (or 300 days if the Department does not extend the time limit for the preliminary results) from the date of publication of the preliminary results.
In accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2), the Department determines that it is not practicable to complete the review within 120 days because we are currently considering whether to solicit additional data and/or comments regarding shipments of subject merchandise during the period of review. Because it is not practicable to complete this administrative review within the time limit mandated by section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2), the Department is fully extending the time limit for completion of the final results of this administrative review to 180 days, until December 4, 2005. However, December 4, 2005, falls on Sunday, and it is the Department's long-standing practice to issue a determination the next business day when the statutory deadline falls on a weekend, federal holiday, or any other day when the Department is closed. See Notice of Clarification: Application of “Next Business Day” Rule for Administrative Determination Deadlines Pursuant to the Tariff Act of 1930, As Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005). Accordingly, the deadline for completion of the final results is December 5, 2005.
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
