On August 31, 2009, the Department published the preliminary results of the new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on circular welded carbon steel pipes and tubes (pipes and tubes) from Thailand for the period March 1, 2008 through September 30, 2008. See Circular Welded Carbon Steel Pipes and Tubes from Thailand: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review, 74 FR 44825 (August 31, 2009) (Preliminary Results).

However, if the review is extraordinarily complicated, the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the final results to a maximum of 150 days. See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2). In this new shipper review, the Department conducted verification after the publication of the Preliminary Results.
