On August 17, 1993, the Department published in the Federal Register the countervailing duty order on corrosion-resistant carbon steel flat products (CORE) from Korea. See Countervailing Duty Orders and Amendments of Final Affirmative Countervailing Duty Determinations: Certain Steel Products from Korea, 58 FR 43752 (August 17, 1993). On August 1, 2008, the Department published a notice of “Opportunity to Request Administrative Review” of this countervailing duty order. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 73 FR 44966 (August 1, 2008). In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), we published a notice of initiation of the administrative review Start Printed Page 19202on September 30, 2008, for the 2008 period of review (POR). See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 73 FR 56795 (September 30, 2008). The preliminary results for this review are currently due no later than May 4, 2009.
Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results
Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires the Department to issue the preliminary results of an administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested and the
final results of review within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. If it is not practicable to complete the review within the time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend these deadlines to a maximum of 365 days and 180 days, respectively.
We are awaiting supplemental information from the Government of Korea in this administrative review. Because the Department will require additional time to review and analyze this supplemental information and may issue further supplemental questionnaires, it is not practicable to complete this review within the originally anticipated time limit (i.e., by May 4, 2009). Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results by 120 days to not later than August 31, 2009, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.
We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.Start Signature
