In addition, section 351.210(e)(2) of the Department’s regulations require that requests by respondents for postponement of a final determination be accompanied by a request for extension of provisional measures from a four month period to not more than six months. On March 25, 2008, Shanghai Wells Hanger Co., Ltd., one of the two mandatory respondents, requested a 60day extension of the final determination and extension of the provisional measures. Thus, because our amended preliminary determination is affirmative, and the respondent requesting a postponement of the final determination and an extension of the provisional measures, accounts for a significant proportion of exports of hangers, and no compelling reasons for denial exist, we are postponing the deadline for the final determination by 60 days until August 7, 2008, based on the publication date of the Preliminary Determination. International Trade Commission Notification jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES In accordance with section 733(f) of the Act, we have notified the International Trade Commission (‘‘ITC’’) of our amended preliminary determination. If our final determination is affirmative, the ITC will make its final determination as to whether the domestic industry in the United States is materially injured, or threatened with material injury, by reason of imports of steel wire garment hangers, or sales (or the likelihood of sales) for importation, of the merchandise under investigation, within 45 days of our final determination. This determination is issued and published in accordance with sections 733(f), 735(a)(2), and 777(i) of the Act and sections 351.210(g) and 351.224(e) of the Department’s regulations.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On November 26, 2007, the U.S. Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') published a notice of initiation of the administrative 
review of the antidumping duty order on carbon and certain alloy steel 
wire rod from Trinidad and Tobago, covering the period October 1, 2006, 
to September 30, 2007. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 72 FR 
65938 (November 26, 2007). The preliminary results of this review are 
currently due no later than July 2, 2008.

Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires the Department to make a preliminary determination in 
an administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the 
anniversary month of an order or finding for which a review is 
requested. Consistent with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the 
Department may extend the 245-day period to 365 days if it is not 
practicable to complete the review within a 245-day period.
    We determine that completion of the preliminary results of this 
review within the 245-day period is not practicable. Specifically, 
Gerdau Ameristeel US Inc., Nucor Steel Connecticut Inc., Keystone 
Consolidated Industries, Inc., and Rocky Mountain Steel Mills 
(collectively, petitioners) have raised a number of issues which 
require the collection of additional data and analysis. In addition, we 
need additional time to thoroughly consider the responses to the 
supplemental questionnaires the Department has sent to the respondent.
    Therefore, we are extending the time period for issuing the 
preliminary results of review by 120 days to October 30, 2008, in 
accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR Sec.  
351.213(h)(2) of the Department's regulations. Therefore, the 
preliminary results are now due no later than October 30, 2008. The 
final results continue to be due 120 days after publication of the 
preliminary results.
    This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) 
and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: April 8, 2008.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
