SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On June 29, 2007, the Department published a notice of initiation 
of administrative review of the countervailing duty order on Stainless 
Steel Plate in Coils from Belgium, covering the period January 1, 2006, 
through December 31, 2006. See Initiation of Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, Request for Revocation in 
Part and Deferral of Administrative Review, 72 FR 35690 (June 29, 
2007).

Statutory Time Limits

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires the Department of Commerce (``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
    This administrative review is extraordinarily complicated due to 
the nature of the countervailable subsidy practices and the fact that 
we have not conducted an administrative review of the countervailing 
duty order on stainless steel plate in coils from Belgium since 2001. 
Because the Department requires additional time to review, analyze, and 
possibly verify the information, and to issue supplemental 
questionnaires, it is not practicable to complete this review within 
the originally anticipated time limit (i.e., by January 31, 2008). 
Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of 
the preliminary results to not later than May 30, 2008, in accordance 
with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: January 3, 2008.
Stephen J. Claeys,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
