This review involves four respondent companies1 as well as the Government of Turkey, and over 15 programs that must be thoroughly analyzed by the Department. We have determined that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of this review within the 245-day period. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of the review by 120 days. The preliminary results are now due no later than March 31, 2006. The final results continue to be due 120 days after publication of the preliminary results.
