AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce
SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (``the Department'') is extending 
the time limit for its final results in the expedited sunset reviews of 
the antidumping and countervailing duty orders on certain cut-to-length 
carbon-quality steel plate (``CTL plate'') from France, India, 
Indonesia, Italy, Japan and Korea. As a result of this extension, the 
Department intends to issue final results of this sunset review on or 
about August 1, 2005.

EFFECTIVE DATE: May 3, 2005.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Martha Douthit at (202) 482-5050 or 
Hilary Sadler, Esq. at (202) 482-4340, Import Administration,

Street & Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Extension of Final Results:

    On January 3, 2005, the Department initiated sunset reviews of the 
antidumping and countervailing duty orders on CTL plate from France, 
India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan and Korea. See Initiation of Five-year 
(Sunset) Reviews, 70 FR 75 (January 3, 2005). Based on adequate 
responses from the domestic interested parties and inadequate responses 
from respondent interested parties, the Department is conducting 
expedited sunset reviews to determine whether revocation of the 
antidumping and countervailing duty orders on CTL plate would lead to 
the continuation or recurrence of dumping or a countervailable subsidy. 
The Department's final results of these reviews were scheduled for May 
3, 2005; however, the Department needs additional time for its 
analysis.
    In accordance with section 751(c)(5)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, 
as amended (``the Act''), the Department may extend the period of time 
for making its final determination in a sunset review by not more than 
90 days, if it determines that the review is extraordinarily 
complicated. As set forth in 751(c)(5)(C), the Department may, among 
other reasons, treat a sunset review as extraordinarily complicated if: 
(i) There are a large number of issues, (ii) the issues to be 
considered are complex or (iii) there are a large number of firms 
involved. In these proceedings, one or more of these reasons apply. 
Specifically, the sunset reviews of the four countervailing duty orders 
on CTL plate contain a large number of complex issues, including 
privatization, directed credit and section 129 implementation, while 
the sunset reviews of the six antidumping duty orders include complex 
issues related to the appropriate margins likely to prevail if the 
orders were revoked and, in some instances, involve a large number of 
companies. The Department has determined, pursuant to section 
751(c)(5)(C) of the Act that the sunset reviews of the antidumping and 
countervailing duty orders of CTL plate from France, India, Indonesia, 
Italy, Japan and Korea are extraordinarily complicated and require 
additional time for the Department to complete its analysis. Therefore, 
the Department will extend the deadlines in these proceedings, and, as 
a result, intends to issue the final results of the sunset reviews of 
the antidumping and countervailing duty orders of CTL plate from 
France, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan and Korea on or about August 1, 
2005, 90 days from the original scheduled date of the final results of 
these reviews. This notice is issued and published in accordance with 
sections 751(c)(5)(B) and (C) of the Act.

    Dated: April 25, 2005.

Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
