Background

On June 30, 2010, the Department published the notice of initiation of this antidumping duty administrative review. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 75 FR 37759 (June 30, 2010). The respondents were initially Yieh Hsing Enterprise Co., Ltd. (Yieh Hsing) and Yieh Phui Enterprise Co., Ltd. (Yieh Phui). On November 18, 2010, the Department published a notice rescinding the review with respect to Yieh Hsing. See Circular Welded Carbon Steel Pipes and Tubes From Taiwan: Notice of Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 75 FR 70723 (November 18, 2010). The current deadline for the preliminary results of this review is January 31, 2011.

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 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. See also 19 CFR 351.213(h).

The Department finds it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of this review within the original time frame because we require additional time to analyze various issues involving, for example, Yieh Phui's cost allocation methodologies and reported date of sale methodology. Accordingly, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results of this administrative review by 120 days, to May 31, 2011. 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.
