On June 28, 2011, the U.S. Department of Commerce (“the Department”) published a notice of initiation of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain welded carbon steel pipe and tube from Turkey covering the period May 1, 2010, through April 30, 2011. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 76 FR 37781 (June 28, 2011). The preliminary results are currently due no later than January 31, 2012.
Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Review
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 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 to up to 120 days.
We determine that completion of the preliminary results of this review within the 245-day period is not practicable because we have complex technical issues relating to quarterly cost, which require additional information and analysis for this administrative review. Due to these reasons and 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 May 31, 2012. Unless extended, the final results continue to be due 120 days after publication of the preliminary results, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.
This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
Dated: January 11, 2012.
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations.
