SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On May 31, 2006, 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

See Notice of Initiation of New Shipper Antidumping Duty Review: 
Certain Steel Concrete Reinforcing Bars from Turkey, 71 FR 30383 (May 
26, 2006). Kroman agreed in writing to waive the time limits in order 
for the Department, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.214(j)(3), to conduct this 
review concurrently with the ninth administrative review of this order 
for the period April 1, 2005, through March 31, 2006, which is being 
conducted pursuant to section 751(a)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the Act). Therefore, the preliminary results are currently due 
no later than January 2, 2007, the first business day after December 
31, 2006.

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of 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. Section 751(a)(3)(A) of 
the Act further provides, however, that the Department may extend the 
245-day period to 365 days if it determines it is not practicable to 
complete the review within the foregoing time period. 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 a request for revocation for two respondents. 
Analysis of these issues, as well as the required verifications of 
these companies, requires additional time. Therefore, we have fully 
extended the deadline for completing the preliminary results until 
April 30, 2007, which is 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 notice is published in accordance with sections 
751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: October 18, 2006.
