See Initiation of Antidumping Duty and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 72 FR 29968 (May 30, 2007). The period of review is April 1, 2006, through March 31, 2007, and the preliminary results are currently due no later than December 31, 2007. The review covers nine producers/exporters of the subject merchandise to the United States. Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (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. The Act further provides, however, that the Department may extend the 245-day period to 365 days if it determines that 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 one of the respondents. Analysis of these issues requires additional time. In addition, we are also conducting numerous concurrent antidumping E:\FR\FM\16NON1.SGM 16NON1 64584 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 221 / Friday, November 16, 2007 / Notices proceedings which place a constraint on the number of analysts that can be assigned to this case. Not only do these other cases present a significant workload, but the deadlines for a number of the cases coincide and/or overlap with deadlines in this antidumping proceeding. Therefore, we have fully extended the deadline for completing the preliminary results until April 29, 2008, 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.

See Polyethylene Terephthalate Film, Sheet, and Strip from India: Notice of Preliminary Results and Rescission, in Part, of Countervailing Duty Administrative Review, 72 FR 43607 (August 6, 2007). The current deadline for the final results of review is December 4, 2007. This review covers two producers/exporters of the subject merchandise to the United States, MTZ Polyfilms, Ltd. (MTZ) and Garware Polyester Ltd. (Garware), as well as the government of India (GOI). Extension of Time Limit for Final Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act) requires the Department to issue the final results in an administrative review within 120 days of the publication date of the preliminary results. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within this time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the PO 00000 Frm 00011 Department to extend the time limit for the final results to a maximum of 180 days. The Department has determined that completion of the final results of this review within the original time period is not practicable due to the additional analysis that must be performed on the information collected at the verification conducted after the issuance of the preliminary results. Thus, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time period for issuing the final results of review by an additional 60 days.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On May 30, 2007, 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 from 
Turkey. See Initiation of Antidumping Duty and Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 72 FR 29968 
(May 30, 2007). The period of review is April 1, 2006, through March 
31, 2007, and the preliminary results are currently due no later than 
December 31, 2007. The review covers nine producers/exporters of the 
subject merchandise to the United States.

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (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. The Act further provides, however, that 
the Department may extend the 245-day period to 365 days if it 
determines that 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 one of the respondents. Analysis of these 
issues requires additional time.
    In addition, we are also conducting numerous concurrent antidumping

proceedings which place a constraint on the number of analysts that can 
be assigned to this case. Not only do these other cases present a 
significant workload, but the deadlines for a number of the cases 
coincide and/or overlap with deadlines in this antidumping proceeding. 
Therefore, we have fully extended the deadline for completing the 
preliminary results until April 29, 2008, 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 is in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the 
Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).

    Dated: November 8, 2007.
