AGENCY: rmajette on PROD1PC67 with NOTICES Statutory Time Limits Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), requires the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) to issue the preliminary results of an administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested and a final determination within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. If it is not practicable to complete the review within the time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend these deadlines to a maximum of 365 days and 180 days, respectively. Background On October 25, 2005, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of administrative review of the antidumping duty order on stainless steel wire rod from Sweden, covering the period September 1, 2004, through August 31, 2005.

The preliminary results for this administration review are currently due no later than June 2, 2006. Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results The Department requires additional time to review and analyze the sales and cost information submitted by the respondent in this administrative review. Moreover, the Department requires additional time to analyze complex issues related to product comparisons and level of trade, issue additional supplemental questionnaires and fully analyze the responses. Thus, it is not practicable to complete this review within the original time limit (i.e., June 2, 2006). Therefore, the Department is partially extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results by 60 days to not later than August 1, 2006, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: April 26, 2006. Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretaryfor Import Administration. [FR Doc.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The Department of Commerce (``the Department'') published in the 
Federal Register a countervailing duty (``CVD'') order on low enriched 
uranium from France on February 13, 2002. See Amended Final 
Determination and Notice of Countervailing Duty Order: Low Enriched 
Uranium from France, 67 FR 6689 (February 13, 2002). On March 23, 2005, 
the Department initiated an administrative review of the CVD order for 
the period January 1, 2004, through December 31, 2004. See Initiation 
of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and 
Requests for Revocation in Part, 70 FR 14643 (March 23, 2005). The 
respondent in this administrative review is Eurodif S.A./Compagnie 
Generale Des Matieres Nucleaires. On February 15, 2006, the Department 
published in the Federal Register its preliminary results. See Notice 
of Preliminary Results of Countervailing Duty Administrative Review: 
Low Enriched Uranium from France, 71 FR 7924 (February 15, 2006). The 
final results are currently due no later than June 15, 2006.

Extension of Time Limit for Final Results of Review

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires the Department to issue final results in an 
administrative review within 120 days after the date on which the

to complete the final results of review within this time period, 
section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the 
time limit for the final results to a maximum of 180 days.
    Given the complexity of issues raised in the case briefs submitted 
by interested parties, we find that it is not practicable for the 
Department to complete the final results of the administrative review 
within the 120-day statutory time frame. Therefore, the Department is 
fully extending the time limits for completion of the final results 
until August 14, 2006.

751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.
