See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 72 FR 61621 (October 31, 2007). The period of review is September 1, 2006, through August 31, 2007. The preliminary results of the administrative review are currently due no later than June 1, 2008. PWALKER on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES Extension of Time Limit for 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 within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested and a final determination within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary determination is published.

We invited interested parties to comment on the preliminary results of review. No interested party submitted comments. We have conducted this administrative review in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). For purposes of this order, the term ‘‘stainless steel bar’’ (SSB) includes articles of stainless steel in straight lengths that have been either hot–rolled, forged, turned, cold–drawn, cold–rolled or otherwise cold–finished, or ground, having a uniform solid cross section along their whole length in the shape of circles, segments of circles, ovals, rectangles (including squares), triangles, hexagons, octagons, or other convex polygons. SSB includes cold–finished stainless steel bars that are turned or ground in straight lengths, whether produced from hot–rolled bar or from straightened and cut rod or wire, and reinforcing bars that have indentations, ribs, grooves, or other deformations produced during the rolling process. Except as specified above, the term does not include stainless steel semi– finished products, cut length flat–rolled products (i.e., cut length rolled products which if less than 4.75 mm in thickness have a width measuring at least 10 times the thickness, or if 4.75 mm or more in thickness having a width which exceeds 150 mm and measures at least twice the thickness), products that have been cut from stainless steel sheet, strip or plate, wire (i.e., cold–formed products in coils, of any uniform solid cross section along their whole length, which do not conform to the definition of flat–rolled products), and angles, shapes and sections.

Currently, the preliminary determination is due no later than June 27, 2008. Postponement of Due Date for Preliminary Determination Section 703(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires the Department to issue the preliminary determination in a countervailing duty investigation within 65 days after the date on which the Department initiated the investigation. However, if the Department concludes that the parties concerned in the investigation are cooperating and determines that the investigation is extraordinarily complicated, section 703(c)(1)(B) of the Act allows the Department to postpone making the preliminary determination until no later than 130 days after the date on which the administering authority initiated the investigation. The Department is currently investigating alleged subsidy programs involving debt-for-equity swaps, loans, grants, income tax incentives, and the provision of goods and services for less than adequate remuneration. Due to the number and complexity of the alleged countervailable subsidy practices being investigated, it is not practicable to complete the preliminary determination of this investigation within the original time limit (i.e., by June 27, 2008). Therefore, in accordance with section 703(c)(1)(B) of the Act, we are fully extending the due date for the preliminary determination to no later than 130 days after the day on which the investigation was initiated. However, as that date falls on a Sunday, the deadline for completion of the preliminary determination is now September 2, 2008, the next business day after the Labor Day holiday. This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 703(c)(2) of the Act. Dated: May 30, 2008. David M. Spooner, Assistant Secretary for Import Administration. [FR Doc.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On March 31, 2008, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published the preliminary results of this administrative review. See 
Stainless Steel Bar from France: Preliminary Results of Antidumping 
Duty Administrative Review, 73 FR 16839 (March 31, 2008) (Preliminary 
Results). We invited interested parties to comment on the preliminary 
results of review. No interested party submitted comments. We have 
conducted this administrative review in accordance with section 751(a) 
of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).

Scope of the Order

    For purposes of this order, the term ``stainless steel bar'' (SSB) 
includes articles of stainless steel in straight lengths that have been 
either hot-rolled, forged, turned, cold-drawn, cold-rolled or otherwise 
cold-finished, or ground, having a uniform solid cross section along 
their whole length in the shape of circles, segments of circles, ovals, 
rectangles (including squares), triangles, hexagons, octagons, or other 
convex polygons. SSB includes cold-finished stainless steel bars that 
are turned or ground in straight lengths, whether produced from hot-
rolled bar or from straightened and cut rod or wire, and reinforcing 
bars that have indentations, ribs, grooves, or other deformations 
produced during the rolling process.
    Except as specified above, the term does not include stainless 
steel semi-finished products, cut length flat-rolled products (i.e., 
cut length rolled products which if less than 4.75 mm in thickness have 
a width measuring at least 10 times the thickness, or if 4.75 mm or 
more in thickness having a width which exceeds 150 mm and measures at 
least twice the thickness), products that have been cut from stainless 
steel sheet, strip or plate, wire (i.e., cold-formed products in coils, 
of any uniform solid cross section along their whole length, which do 
not conform to the definition of flat-rolled products), and angles, 
shapes and sections.
    The SSB subject to this order is currently classifiable under 
subheadings 7222.11.00.05, 7222.11.00.50, 7222.19.00.05, 7222.19.00.50, 
7222.20.00.05, 7222.20.00.45, 7222.20.00.75, and 7222.30.00.00 of the 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Although the 
HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, 
the

written description of the scope of this order is dispositive.

Final Results of Review

    We determine that the following weighted-average margin percentage 
exists:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                Manufacturer/exporter                  Margin (percent)
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Ascometal S.A.......................................                0.00
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment

    The Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b). With respect to 
Ascometal, we calculated importer-specific ad valorem duty assessment 
rates for the subject merchandise by aggregating the dumping margins 
calculated for all the U.S. sales examined and dividing this amount by 
the total entered value of the sales examined. Pursuant to 19 CFR 
351.106(c)(2), we will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all 
appropriate entries covered by this review if any importer-specific 
assessment rate calculated is above de minimis (i.e., is not less than 
0.50 percent). The Department intends to issue assessment instructions 
to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these final results of 
review.
    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003. See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). This 
clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the 
period of review produced by the company included in these final 
results of review for which the reviewed company did not know its 
merchandise was destined for the United States. In such instances, we 
will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others 
rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in 
the transaction.

Discontinuation of Cash Deposit Requirements

    As stated in our preliminary results, we have instructed CBP to 
discontinue collection of cash deposits of antidumping duties on 
entries of the subject merchandise made on or after March 7, 2007 (the 
effective date of the revocation of this order). See Preliminary 
Results at 16842; Revocation of Antidumping Duty Orders on Stainless 
Steel Bar From France, Germany, Italy, South Korea, and the United 
Kingdom and the Countervailing Duty Order on Stainless Steel Bar From 
Italy, 73 FR 7258 (February 7, 2008).

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written 
notification of return/destruction of APO materials or conversion to 
judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with 
the regulations and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation.
    We are issuing and publishing this determination and notice in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: May 30, 2008.

Assistant Secretaryfor Import Administration.
