SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Background On December 7, 2007, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain hot– rolled carbon steel flat products (‘‘hot– rolled steel’’) from Thailand, covering the period November 1, 2005, through October 31, 2006. See Certain Hot– Rolled Carbon Steel Flat Products from Thailand: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Partial Rescission, 72 FR 69187 (December 7, 2007) (‘‘Preliminary Results’’). The final results of this review are currently due no later than April 5, 2008. Extension of Time Limit for Final Results of Review Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), the Department shall make a final determination in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. However, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the 120–day period to 180 days after the preliminary results, if it determines it is not practicable to complete the review within the foregoing time period. The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the final results of the administrative review of hot– rolled steel from Thailand within the 120–day period due to the complexity of two issues which were briefed by petitioner, respondent, and domestic interested party. First, the Department applied facts otherwise available to G Steel Public Company Limited (‘‘G Steel’’) in the Preliminary Results because we were unable to verify G Steel’s yield strength data in both the home market and U.S. market. Second, in the Preliminary Results, we determined that G Steel and Nakornthai Strip Mill Public Company Limited (‘‘NSM’’), another respondent in this administrative review, became affiliated at the end of the POR, but that the requirements had not been met to collapse the two companies. We need additional time to analyze parties’ comments regarding both of these issues. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time period for completion of the final results of this review by 60 days to 180 days after the date on which the preliminary results were published. Accordingly, the final results are now due no later than June 4, 2008. E:\FR\FM\07MRN1.SGM 07MRN1
