    The Department of Commerce (the Department) received timely 
requests for administrative review of the antidumping duty order on 
certain hot-rolled carbon steel flat products (hot-rolled steel) from 
Thailand, with respect to Sahaviriya Steel Industries Public Company 
Limited (SSI) on November 30, 2005, from domestic producer Nucor 
Corporation (Nucor). Also on November 30, 2005, the Department received 
a request for administrative review of the same order for SSI, 
Nakornthai Strip Mill Public Co., Ltd. (NSM), and G Steel Public 
Company Limited (G Steel) from petitioner United States Steel

period of November 1, 2004, through October 31, 2005. See Notice of 
Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative 
Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 70 FR 76024 (December 22, 
2005).
    On January 13, 2006, G Steel submitted a no-shipments letter to the 
Department in which it claimed it did not have sales, shipments, or 
entries of subject merchandise to the United States during the current 
period of review (i.e., November 1, 2004 through October 31, 2005).
    On March 22, 2006, both Nucor and petitioner submitted letters 
withdrawing their requests for administrative review of the above-
referenced antidumping duty order with respect to SSI. Accordingly, on 
April 28, 2006, the Department rescinded this review with respect to 
SSI. See Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: 
Certain Hot-Rolled Carbon Steel Flat Products from Thailand, 71 FR

Department to rescind the current administrative review with respect to 
NSM, and on September 15, 2006, NSM submitted comments rebutting

analyzing NSM's sales and cost data and the control number reporting 
methodology for various products, it is not practicable to complete 
this review by the current 60-day extended deadline of October 2, 2006. 
Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the 
Department is extending the time limit for the preliminary results by
