On February 2, 2007, the U.S. Department of Commerce (“Department”) published a notice of initiation of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on hot-rolled carbon steel flat products from India, covering the period December 1, 2005 to November 30, 2006. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 72 FR 5005 (February 2, 2007). The preliminary results of this review are currently due no later than September 2, 2007.
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 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 to up to 365 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 covers four companies, and to conduct the sales and cost analyses for each company requires the Department to gather and analyze a significant amount of information pertaining to each company's sales practices, manufacturing costs and corporate relationships. Given the number and complexity of issues in this case, 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 108 days. Therefore, the preliminary results are now due no later than December 19, 2007. The final results continue to be due 120 days after publication of the preliminary results.
This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.Start Signature
