SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On February 2, 2007, the U.S. Department of Commerce 
(``Department'') published a notice of initiation of the administrative 
review of the antidumping duty order on certain hot-rolled carbon steel 
flat products from India, covering the period December 1, 2005, to 
November 30, 2006. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 72 FR 
5005 (February 2, 2007). On December 31, 2007, the Department published 
the preliminary results of the antidumping duty administrative review 
for certain hot-rolled carbon steel flat products from India. See 
Certain Hot-Rolled Carbon Steel Flat Products from India: Notice of 
Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 72 FR 
74267 (December 31, 2007). The final results of this review are 
currently due no later than April 29, 2008.

Extension of Time Limit of Final Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires the Department to issue final results within 120 days 
after the date on which the preliminary results are published. However, 
if it is not practicable to complete the review within that time 
period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend 
the time limit for the final results to a maximum of 180 days. See also 
19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).
    We determine that it is not practicable to complete the final 
results of this review within the original time limit. Petitioners 
requested additional time to review the verification reports and submit 
case briefs. Accordingly, we amended the schedule for interested 
parties to submit case briefs and rebuttal briefs, which are now due on 
Friday, April 4, 2008, and Friday, April 11, 2008, respectively. The 
Department is extending the final results by 15 days, in accordance 
with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, to allow sufficient time to 
analyze interested parties' case briefs and rebuttal briefs. The final 
results are now due no later than May 14, 2008. This extension is 
issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 
777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: April 1, 2008.
