EFFECTIVE DATE: September 21, 2005. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Christopher Hargett, AD/CVD Operations, Office 3, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Ave, NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–4161. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On June 30, 2004, the Department initiated an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain welded carbon steel pipe and tube from Turkey. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 69 FR 39409. On November 1, 2004, the Department fully extended the preliminary results of the aforementioned review by 120 days. See Certain Welded Carbon Steel Pipe and Tube From Turkey: Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 69 FR 63366. On June 7, 2005, the Department published the preliminary results of its review. See Notice of Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Certain Welded Carbon Steel Pipe and Tube from Turkey, 70 FR 33084. The final results are currently due no later than October 5, 2005. Extension of Time Limits for Final Results of Review Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), requires the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) to issue (1) the preliminary results of a review within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order or finding for which a review is requested, and (2) the final results within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within that 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 VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:40 Sep 20, 2005 Jkt 205001 365 days and the final results to a maximum of 180 days (or 300 days if the Department does not extend the time limit for the preliminary results) from the date of the publication of the preliminary results. See also 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2). We determine that it is not practicable to complete the final results of this review within the original time limit because the Department needs additional time to fully consider parties’ arguments regarding the proposed modifications to the computation of duty drawback. Therefore, we are extending the deadline for the final results of the above–referenced review by 60 days, until December 4, 2005. However, December 4, 2005, falls on Sunday, and it is the Department’s long–standing practice to issue a determination the next business day when the statutory deadline falls on a weekend, federal holiday, or any other day when the Department is closed. See Notice of Clarification: Application of ‘‘Next Business Day’’ Rule for Administrative Determination Deadlines Pursuant to the Tariff Act of 1930, As Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005). Accordingly, the deadline for completion of the final results is December 5, 2005. Dated: September 15, 2005. Barbara E. Tillman, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
