SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On December 27, 2004, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published a notice of initiation of the 2003-2004 antidumping duty 
administrative review of this order covering S.C. Ispat Sidex S.A, 
Sidex Trading S.r.l., and Metalexportimport, S.A. 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 Limit for Preliminary Results

    The Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), provides at section 
751(a)(3)(A) that the Department will issue the preliminary results of 
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 provides further that, if the Department 
determines that it is not practicable to complete the review within 
this time period, the Department may extend the 245-day period to 365 
days.
    The Department has determined that it is not practicable to 
complete the preliminary results by the current deadline of August 2, 
2005, because it received a request for an expedited changed-
circumstances review for this order on March 24, 2005, followed by a 
request to conduct a sales-below-cost investigation on March 31, 2005. 
Following our initiation of a cost investigation, we requested that 
Ispat Sidex respond to a cost-of-production questionnaire and respond 
to supplemental questions regarding its home-market and U.S. 
questionnaire response.
    This review presents new and complex issues for the Department to 
consider as a result of Romania's change in status from a non-market 
economy to a market economy on January 1, 2003 (see Certain Small 
Diameter Carbon and Alloy Seamless Standard, Line, and Pressure Pipe 
From Romania: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 
68 FR 12672 (March 17, 2003). Further, additional time is necessary to 
conduct a verification of Ispat Sidex's questionnaire responses.
    Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 
19 CFR 351.213(h)(2), the Department is extending the time limit for 
the preliminary results by 120 days to November 30, 2005.
    We are issuing this notice in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) 
of the Act.

    Dated: July 7, 2005.

Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
