SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    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 small diameter seamless carbon 
and alloy steel standard, line and pressure pipe from Brazil, covering 
the period August 1, 2005, through July 31, 2006. See Initiation of

(September 29, 2006). The preliminary results for this review are 
currently due no later than May 3, 2007.

Statutory Time Limits

within the time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the

and calculated its interest expense ratio on April 18, 2007, and the

supplemental questionnaire response, and to issue additional 
supplemental cost questionnaires, if necessary.

analyses for this administrative review, in accordance with section 
751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time limit for
