On December 1, 2005, the U.S. Department of Commerce (“the Department”) published a notice of initiation of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on carbon and alloy steel wire rod from Trinidad and Tobago, covering the period October 1, 2004, to September 30, 2005. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Deferral of Administrative Reviews, 70 FR 72107 (December 1, 2005). The preliminary results of this review are currently due no later than July 3, 2006.
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 in an administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order or finding for which a review is requested. Consistent with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department may extend the 245-day period to 365 days if it is not practicable to complete the review within a 245-day period.
We determine that completion of the preliminary results of this review within the 245-day period is not practicable. Specifically, we need additional time to thoroughly consider the responses to the supplemental questionnaires the Department has sent to the respondents.
Therefore, we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of review by 120 days to October 31, 2006, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2) of the Department's regulations. Therefore, the preliminary results are now due no later than October 31, 2006. The final results continue to be due 120 days after publication of the preliminary results.
This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.Start Signature
