On September 29, 2006, the U.S. Department of Commerce (“Department”) published a notice of initiation of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on corrosion-resistant carbon steel flat products from Korea, covering the period August 1, 2005 to July 31, 2006. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 71 FR 57465 (September 29, 2006). On September 10, 2007, the Department published the preliminary results of this review. See Certain Corrosion Resistant Carbon Steel Flat Products from the Republic of Korea: Notice of Preliminary Results and Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 72 FR 51584 (September 10, 2007). The final results of this review are currently due no later than January 8, 2008.
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 issue final results within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within that time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the final results to a maximum of 180 days. See also 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).
We determine that it is not practicable to complete the final results of this review within the original time limit. Several technical issues arose which require the collection and analyses of certain additional information after the preliminary results. Therefore, to allow sufficient time to collect and analyze the additional information, and to conduct the briefing process, the Department is fully extending the final results. The final results are now due not later than March 10, 2008, the next business day after 180 days from publication of the preliminary results. The amended schedule for interested parties to submit case briefs, written comments, and/or hearing is not later than Monday, January 14, 2008. Rebuttal briefs are limited to issues raised in such briefs or comments and may be filed no later than five days after the time limit for filing the case briefs or comments. See 19 CFR 351.309(d). Any hearing, if requested, ordinarily will be held two days after the due date of the rebuttal briefs.
This extension is in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).Start Signature
