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 certain 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). On December 31, 2007, the Department published the preliminary results of the antidumping duty administrative review for certain hot-rolled carbon steel flat products from India. See Certain Hot-Rolled Carbon Steel Flat Products from India: Notice of Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 72 FR 74267 (December 31, 2007). On April 7, 2008, the Department partially extended the time limit for the final results of this review. See Certain Hot-Rolled Carbon Steel Flat Products from India: Extension of Time Limits for the Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 73 FR 18753 (April 7, 2008). The final results of this review are currently due no later than May 14, 2008.
Extension for Time Limit of Final 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 current time limit. Interested parties to this review submitted extensive comments and rebuttal comments on the preliminary results of this review, requiring substantial analysis by the Department. Thus, the Department is extending the final results by an additional 16 days, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, to allow sufficient time to thoroughly analyze interested parties' case briefs and rebuttal briefs. The final results are now due no later than May 30, 2008. This extension is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.Start Signature
