Background

    On October 6, 2006, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
received a timely request from Ege Celik Endustrisi Sanayi ve Ticaret 
A.S., a producer of subject merchandise, and its affiliated export 
trading company, Ege Dis Ticaret A.S. (collectively ``Ege Celik'') in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(c), for a new shipper review of the 
antidumping duty order on certain steel concrete reinforcing bars 
(rebar) from Turkey. On November 7, 2006, the Department found that the 
request for review with respect to Ege Celik met all of the regulatory 
requirements set forth in 19 CFR 351.214(b) and initiated an 
antidumping duty new shipper review covering the period April 1, 2006, 
through September 30, 2006. See Notice of Initiation of New Shipper 
Antidumping Duty Review: Certain Steel Concrete Reinforcing Bars from 
Turkey, 71 FR 66503 (Nov. 15, 2006). The preliminary results are 
currently due no later than May 6, 2007.

    Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(1) require the Department to issue the 
preliminary results of a new shipper review within 180 days after the

shipper review to 300 days if it determines that the case is 
extraordinarily complicated. See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act 
and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2).
    The Department has determined that the review is extraordinarily 
complicated because it involves a number of issues including certain 
allegations raised by the domestic interested parties regarding Ege 
Celik's affiliation with other producers in the Turkish steel industry. 
Analysis of these issues requires additional time. Accordingly, the 
Department is extending the time limit for the completion of the 
preliminary results of the new shipper review of Ege Celik to 300 days. 
The preliminary results will now be due no later than September 4, 
2007, the first business day after September 3, 2007, in accordance 
with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2). The
