If it is not practicable to complete the review within these time periods, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the preliminary results to a maximum of 365 days after the last day of the anniversary month. On April 26, 2006, the Department published a notice extending the preliminary results for this review by 90 days until August 1, 2006. See Notice of Extension of Deadline for the Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Polyethylene Retail Carrier Bags from Thailand, 71 FR 24641 (April 26, 2006). Since the publication of the extension notice, the Department conducted home–market sales and cost verifications of two of the seven respondents involved in this review and has a number of issues to address as a result of these verifications. In addition, the Department must also address several complex issues raised in recent filings by interested parties involving, among others, costs of production, affiliated–party inputs, direct material expenses, and sales reporting. Due to the complexity of the issues in this review, the Department needs additional time to conduct its analysis. Therefore, we are extending the deadline for issuing the preliminary results of this review by an additional 30 days until August 31, 2006. This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On December 22, 2005, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published a notice of initiation of the 2004-2005 antidumping duty 
administrative review of this order covering Mittal Steel Galati S.A. 
(formerly Ispat Sidex S.A). See Initiation of Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation 
in Part, 70 FR 76024 (December 22, 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. Section 751(a)(3)(A) of 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, 
2006, because it received a request to conduct a sales-below-cost 
investigation on July 11, 2006. Additional time is necessary to 
consider whether to initiate a sales-below-cost investigation, give MS 
Galati an opportunity to provide relevant information, review MS 
Galati's response, and, if appropriate, conduct the cost analysis as 
part of the calculation of the weighted-average margin for MS Galati.
    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 75 days to October 16, 2006.
    We are issuing this notice in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) 
of the Act.

    Dated: July 21, 2006.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
