SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On January 29, 2010, the Department published a notice of initiation of antidumping duty administrative review of certain hot-rolled carbon steel flat products from India for the period December 1, 2008, through November 30, 2009. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, Request for Revocation in Part, and Deferral of Initiation of Administrative Review, 75 FR 4770 Start Printed Page 55743(January 29, 2010) (“Initiation Notice”). The current deadline for the preliminary results of this administrative review is September 9, 2010.1

Statutory Time Limits

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.

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results

The Department requires additional time to review and analyze the status of entries subject to this administrative review. Thus, it is not practicable to complete this review within the originally anticipated time limit (i.e., by September 9, 2010). Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results by 120 days. The preliminary results are now due no later than January 7, 2011. 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.

1.  As explained in the memorandum from the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, the Department has exercised its discretion to toll deadlines for the duration of the closure of the Federal Government from February 5, through February 12, 2010. See Memorandum to the Record from Ronald Lorentzen, DAS for Import Administration, regarding “Tolling of Administrative Deadlines As a Result of the Government Closure During the Recent Snowstorm,” dated February 12, 2010. Thus, all deadlines in this segment of the proceeding were extended by seven days.

The final results of this review continue to be due 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results.
