SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On August 6, 2007, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on stainless steel sheet and strip in coils from Mexico for the period July 1, 2005 through June 30, 2006. See Stainless Steel Sheet and Strip in Coils from Mexico; Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 72 FR 43600 (August 6, 2007). The current deadline for the final results of this review is December 4, 2007.

Extension of Time Limits for Final Results

Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Tariff Act), requires the Department to issue the final results of an administrative review within 120 days after 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 Tariff Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the final results up to 180 days from the date of publication of the preliminary results.

The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete this review within the original time frame due to additional analysis that must be performed with respect to certain adjustments made to U.S. price and the calculation of general and administrative expenses. Furthermore, the Department requires additional time to conduct its cost verification of the questionnaire and supplemental questionnaire responses. Consequently, and in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2), the Department is extending the time period for issuing the final results of review by 37 days to 157 days after the publication of the preliminary results. Therefore, the final results will be due no later than January 10, 2008. This notice is published in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act.
