SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:Start Printed Page 59723
On March 23, 2005, the U.S. Department of Commerce (“the Department”) published a notice of initiation of the administrative review on the countervailing duty order of certain cut-to-length carbon quality steel plate (“CTL Plate”) from the Republic of Korea, covering the period January 1, 2004, through December 31, 2004. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 70 FR 14643 (March 23, 2005). The preliminary results of this review are currently due no later than October 31, 2005.
Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results
Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”), requires the Department to make a preliminary determination within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order or finding for which a review is requested. Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act further states that if it is not practicable to complete the review within the time period specified, the administering authority may extend the 245-day period to issue its preliminary results by up to 120 days.
We determine that completion of the preliminary results of this review within the 245-day period is not practicable for the following reason. The Department is considering a verification of this proceeding and due to scheduling conflicts would not be able to do so by the current preliminary due date. Given the number and complexity of issues in this case, and in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of review by 120 days. Therefore, the preliminary results are now due no later than February 28, 2005. The final results continue to be due 120 days after publication of the preliminary results.Start Signature
