Background

On July 31, 2009, the Department received a timely request from both Mexinox and Allegheny Ludlum Corporation, AK Steel Corporation, and North American Stainless (collectively, petitioners), to conduct an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain stainless steel sheet and strip in coils (S4 in coils) from Mexico. On August 25, 2009, the Department published a notice of initiation of this administrative review, covering the period of July 1, 2008, to June 30, 2009. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 74 FR 42875 (August 25, 2009). The current deadline for the preliminary results of this review is April 9, 2010.

Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results

Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires that the Department complete 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. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within this time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the preliminary results to a maximum of 365 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested.

The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of this review within the original Start Printed Page 17691time frame because additional information from the respondent, Mexinox, is necessary to complete our analysis. The Department will not have sufficient time to obtain and analyze the new information prior to the current deadline for the preliminary results. Accordingly, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results of this administrative review until no later than August 2, 2010. We intend to issue the final results no later than 120 days after publication of the preliminary results notice.

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