On September 9, 2005, the Department of Commerce (“the Department”) published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain corrosion-resistant carbon steel flat products from Canada for the period of August 1, 2003, through July 31, 2004 (see Certain Corrosion-Resistant Carbon Steel Flat Products from Canada: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 70 FR 53621 (September 9, 2005)) (Preliminary Results). The current deadline for the final results of this review is January 7, 2006.
Extension of Time Limit for Final Results of Review
Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”), requires the Department to issue the final results in an administrative review within 120 days of the date on which the preliminary results were 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 from the date of publication of the preliminary results.
Because of the Department's recent verification after the issuance of its preliminary determination, additional time is required to release and analyze its findings, and to afford interested parties the opportunity to comment on the verification findings of the three Canadian producers of subject merchandise: Dofasco Inc., Sorevco Inc., and Stelco Inc. Therefore, the Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the review by the original deadline of January 7, 2006. Consequently, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and section 351.213(h)(2) of the Department's regulations, the Department is extending the time limit for the completion of the final results of the review until no later than March 8, 2006, which is 180 days from the publication of the preliminary results.
This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.Start Signature
