SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On May 27, 2005, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published a notice of initiation of administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain steel concrete reinforcing bars from Turkey (70 FR 30694). The period of review is April 1, 2004, through March 31, 2005, and the preliminary results are currently due no later than December 31, 2005. The review covers 34 producers/exporters of the subject merchandise to the United States. Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), the Department shall make a preliminary determination in an administrative review of an antidumping order within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the order.

We determine that it is not practicable to complete this administrative review within the time limits mandated by section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act because this review involves a number of complicated issues for certain of the respondents, including the reporting of downstream sales for affiliated resellers. Analysis of these issues requires additional time. Therefore, we have fully extended the deadline for completing the preliminary results until May 1, 2006, which is the next business day after 365 days from the last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the order. The deadline for the final results of the review continues to be 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results. This extension is in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1675(a)(3)(A)) and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2). Dated: November 17, 2005. Stephen J.
