SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background The Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) received timely requests for administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain hot– rolled carbon steel flat products from Thailand, with respect to Sahaviriya Steel Industries Public Company Limited (‘‘SSI’’) on November 30, 2004 from both SSI and domestic producer VerDate jul<14>2003 16:03 Jul 08, 2005 Jkt 205001 Nucor Corporation. Also on November 30, 2004, the Department received a request for administrative review of the same order for SSI, Nakornthai Strip Mill Public Co., Ltd., and G Steel Public Company Limited (formerly Siam Strip Mill Public Co., Ltd.) from United States Steel Corporation. On December 27, 2004, the Department published a notice of initiation of this administrative review for the period of November 1, 2003, through October 31, 2004. See Notice of Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 69 FR 77181 (December 27, 2004). Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), the Department shall issue preliminary results in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the order. The Act further provides, however, that the Department may extend that 245-day period to 365 days if it determines it is not practicable to complete the review within the foregoing time period. In light of the complexity of analyzing SSI’s sales data of its multiple affiliates, its cost calculations and the control number reporting methodology for various products, it is not practicable to complete this review by the current deadline of August 2, 2005. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time limit for the preliminary results until November 30, 2005, which is 365 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the order. The final results continue to be due 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results, in accordance with section 351.213 (h) of the Department’s regulations. This notice is issued and published in accordance to sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: June 30, 2005. Barbara E. Tillman, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.

Purified CMC does not include unpurified or crude CMC, CMC Fluidized Polymer Suspensions, and CMC that is cross–linked through heat treatment. Purified CMC is CMC that has undergone one or more purification operations which, at a minimum, reduce the remaining salt and other by–product portion of the product to less than ten percent. The merchandise subject to this order is classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States at subheading 3912.31.00. This tariff classification is provided for convenience and customs purposes; however, the written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. Antidumping Duty Orders On June 30, 2005, in accordance with section 735(d) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), the ITC notified the Department of its final determination pursuant to section 735(b)(1)(A)(i) of the Act that an industry in the United States is materially injured by reason of less– than-fair–value imports of purified CMC from Finland, Mexico, the Netherlands and Sweden. Therefore, in accordance with section 736(a)(1) of the Act, the Department will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess, upon further instruction by the Department, antidumping duties equal to the amount by which the normal value of the merchandise exceeds the export price (or the constructed export price) of the merchandise for all relevant entries of purified CMC from Finland, Mexico, the Netherlands and Sweden. These antidumping duties will be assessed on (1) all entries of purified CMC from Finland, Mexico, the Netherlands and Sweden entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after December 27, 2004, the date on which Country the Department published its notices of preliminary determinations in the Federal Register1, and before June 25, 2005, the date on which the Department is required, pursuant to section 733(d) of the Act, to terminate the suspension of liquidation; and (2) on all subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of the ITC’s notice of final determination in the Federal Register.

Antidumping Duty Orders

    On June 30, 2005, in accordance with section 735(d) of the Tariff 
Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), the ITC notified the Department of 
its final determination pursuant to section 735(b)(1)(A)(i) of the Act 
that an industry in the United States is materially injured by reason 
of less-than-fair-value imports of purified CMC from Finland, Mexico, 
the Netherlands and Sweden.
    Therefore, in accordance with section 736(a)(1) of the Act, the 
Department will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to 
assess, upon further instruction by the Department, antidumping duties 
equal to the amount by which the normal value of the merchandise 
exceeds the export price (or the constructed export price) of the 
merchandise for all relevant entries of purified CMC from Finland, 
Mexico, the Netherlands and Sweden. These antidumping duties will be 
assessed on (1) all entries of purified CMC from Finland, Mexico, the 
Netherlands and Sweden entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption on or after December 27, 2004, the date on which the 
Department published its notices of preliminary determinations in the 
Federal Register\1\, and before June 25, 2005, the date on which the 
Department is required, pursuant to section 733(d) of the Act, to 
terminate the suspension of liquidation; and (2) on all subject 
merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or 
after the date of publication of the ITC's notice of final 
determination in the Federal Register. Entries of purified CMC from
