Background Information

On September 28, 2005, the U.S. Department of Commerce (“the Department”) published a notice of initiation of the administrative review of the countervailing duty order on stainless steel sheet and strip in coils from the Republic of Korea covering the period of review January 1, 2004, through December 31, 2004. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 70 FR 56631 (September 28, 2005). The preliminary results are currently due no later than May 3, 2006.

Extension of Time Limit for 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 reasons. This review involves a company that has not been reviewed since the investigation and 16 government programs. Given the number of programs, which need to be thoroughly analyzed by the Department, 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 110 days. Therefore, the preliminary results are now due no later than August 21, 2006. The final results continue to be due 120 days after publication of the preliminary results.This notice is issued and published in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.
