On September 29, 2006, the Department of Commerce (``the
Department'') published a notice of initiation of administrative review
of the antidumping duty order on certain cut-to-length carbon steel
plate from Romania, covering the period August 1, 2005, through July

Administrative Reviews, 71 FR 57465 (September 29, 2006). The
preliminary results for this review are currently due no later than May
Statutory Time Limits
Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the
Act''), requires the 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 the
final results of review 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.
Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results
The deadline for the preliminary results of this administrative
review is currently May 3, 2007. The Department determines that
completion of the preliminary results within the statutory time period
is not practicable. The Department issued a supplemental sales
questionnaire to respondent Mittal Steel Galati S.A. (``MS Galati'')
for clarification pertaining to the date of sale issue for respondent's
U.S. sales on April 2, 2007, and the respondent submitted its
supplemental questionnaire response on April 16, 2007. The Department
requires additional time to review and analyze MS Galati's
questionnaire response, and to issue additional supplemental sales
questionnaires, if necessary.
Therefore, given the additional time needed to conduct a complete
analysis for this administrative review, in accordance with section
751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time limit for
completion of the preliminary results by an additional 60 days to no
later than July 2, 2007. The final results continue to be due no later
than 120 days after publication of the notice of the preliminary
This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A)
and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
Dated: April 27, 2007.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
