Background Information

On April 27, 2009, the U.S. Department of Commerce (the Department) published a notice of initiation of the administrative review of the countervailing duty order on certain welded carbon steel standard pipe from Turkey covering the period of review January 1, 2008, through December 31, 2008. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 74 FR 19042 (April 27, 2009). The preliminary results are currently due no later than December 1, 2009.

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results

Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires the Department to make a preliminary determination within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order or finding for which a review is requested. Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act further states that if it is not practicable to complete the review within the time period specified, the administering authority may extend the 245-day period to issue its preliminary results by up to 120 days.

The respondents under review are Borusan Mannesmann Boru Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S., Borusan Istikbal Ticaret T.A.S., Tosyali dis Ticaret A.S., Toscelik Profil ve Sac Endustrisi A.S. and the Government of Turkey. In this review, there are 12 programs and new subsidies allegations, which the Department continues to examine. As such, we have determined that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of this review within the 245-day period. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of the review by 120 days. The preliminary results are now due no later than March 31, 2010. The final results continue to be due 120 days after publication of the preliminary results.

This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
