Background

On August 30, 2006, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published a notice of initiation of administrative review of the antidumping duty order on Stainless Steel Sheet and Strip in Coils from Taiwan. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 71 FR 51573 (Aug. 30, 2006). The period of review is July 1, 2005, through June 30, 2006, and the preliminary results are currently due no later than April 2, 2007. The review covers 12 Start Printed Page 14078producers/exporters of the subject merchandise to the United States.

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results

Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), the Department shall make a preliminary determination in an administrative review of an antidumping order within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the order. Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act further provides, however, that the Department may extend the 245-day period to 365 days if it determines it is not practicable to complete the review within the foregoing time period. We determine that it is not practicable to complete this administrative review within the time limits mandated by section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act because we require additional time to analyze the respondent's cost of production response and issue supplemental questionnaires. Therefore, we have fully extended the deadline for completing the preliminary results until July 31, 2007, which is 365 days from the last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the order. The deadline for the final results of the review continues to be 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results.

This extension notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.
