AGENCY: Background On September 28, 2005, the U.S. Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published a notice of initiation of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain cut-to-length carbon steel plate from Germany, covering the period August 1, 2004, to July 31, 2005. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 70 FR 56631 (September 28, 2005). The preliminary results of this review are currently due no later than May 3, 2006. Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), requires the Department to make a preliminary determination in an administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order or finding for which a review is requested. Consistent with E:\FR\FM\06APN1.SGM 06APN1 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 66 / Thursday, April 6, 2006 / Notices section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department may extend the 245-day period to 365 days if it is not practicable to complete the review within a 245-day period. We determine that completion of the preliminary results of this review within the 245-day period is not practicable. A number of complex issues concerning the respondent company’s intercorporate relationships have arisen in the case. As a result, the Department needs additional time to gather supplemental responses from the company and its affiliate participating in the review. In order to obtain and analyze the necessary additional information, we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of review by 120 days to August 31, 2006, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2) of the Department’s regulations. Therefore, the preliminary results are now due no later than August 31, 2006. The final results continue to be due 120 days after publication of the preliminary results.

See Certain Malleable Iron Pipe Fittings From the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 70 FR 76234 (December 23, 2005) (‘‘Preliminary Results’’). The final results of review are currently due no later than April 22, 2006. Extension of Time Limits for Final Results Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), and section 351.213(h)(1) of the Department’s regulations, the Department shall issue the preliminary results of an administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the antidumping duty order. The Act further provides that the Department shall issue the final results of review within 120 days after the date on which the notice of the preliminary results was published in the Federal Register. However, if the Department determines that it is not practicable to complete the review within this time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and section 351.213(h)(2) of the Department’s regulations allow the Department to extend the 245-day period to 365 days and the 120-day period to 180 days. We find that it is not practicable to complete the final results in this administrative review by April 22, 2006, because additional time is needed to analyze a significant amount of information submitted in response to supplemental questionnaires that were issued subsequent to the Preliminary Results. Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit for the completion of these final results by 60 days until no later than Wednesday, June 21, 2006, which is 180 days from the date on which the notice of the Preliminary Results was published.

Background

    On September 28, 2005, the U.S. Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') published a notice of initiation of the administrative 
review of the antidumping duty order on certain cut-to-length carbon 
steel plate from Germany, covering the period August 1, 2004, to July 
31, 2005. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 70 FR 56631 
(September 28, 2005). The preliminary results of this review are 
currently due no later than May 3, 2006.

Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires the Department to make a preliminary determination in 
an administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the

section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department may extend the 245-day 
period to 365 days if it is not practicable to complete the review 
within a 245-day period.
    We determine that completion of the preliminary results of this 
review within the 245-day period is not practicable. A number of 
complex issues concerning the respondent company's intercorporate 
relationships have arisen in the case. As a result, the Department 
needs additional time to gather supplemental responses from the company 
and its affiliate participating in the review. In order to obtain and 
analyze the necessary additional information, we are extending the time 
period for issuing the preliminary results of review by 120 days to 
August 31, 2006, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 
19 CFR 351.213(h)(2) of the Department's regulations. Therefore, the 
preliminary results are now due no later than August 31, 2006. The 
final results continue to be due 120 days after publication of the 
preliminary results.
    This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) 
and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: March 30, 2006.
