VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:06 Oct 20, 2008 Jkt 217001 Background At the request of interested parties, the Department of Commerce (the Department) initiated an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain cut–to-length carbon–quality steel plate products from the Republic of Korea for the period February 1, 2007, through January 31, 2008. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, Request for Revocation in Part, and Deferral of Administrative Review, 73 FR 16837 (March 31, 2008). The preliminary results of this administrative review are currently due no later than October 31, 2008. 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. If it is not practicable to complete the review within these time periods, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the preliminary results to a maximum of 365 days after the last day of the anniversary month. See also 19 CFR 351.213(h). We determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of this review by the current deadline of October 31, 2008, for several reasons. Specifically, the Department has granted the respondent, Dongkuk Steel Mill Co., Ltd. (DSM), several extensions to respond to the original and supplemental questionnaires.1 Thus, the Department requires additional time to review and analyze the sales and cost responses submitted by DSM. Further, the Department requires additional time to review issues such as corporate affiliations and to analyze the changes in DSM’s product–coding system as it will affect the Department’s matching methodology in this case. Therefore, we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of this review by 45 days until December 15, 2008.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    At the request of interested parties, the Department of Commerce 
(the Department) initiated an administrative review of the antidumping 
duty order on certain cut-to-length carbon-quality steel plate products 
from the Republic of Korea for the period February 1, 2007, through 
January 31, 2008. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Reviews, Request for Revocation in Part, and Deferral of 
Administrative Review, 73 FR 16837 (March 31, 2008). The preliminary 
results of this administrative review are currently due no later than 
October 31, 2008.

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. If it is not practicable to complete the review within these 
time periods, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to 
extend the time limit for the preliminary results to a maximum of 365 
days after the last day of the anniversary month. See also 19 CFR 
351.213(h).
    We determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary 
results of this review by the current deadline of October 31, 2008, for 
several reasons. Specifically, the Department has granted the 
respondent, Dongkuk Steel Mill Co., Ltd. (DSM), several extensions to 
respond to the original and supplemental questionnaires.\1\ Thus, the 
Department requires additional time to review and analyze the sales and 
cost responses submitted by DSM. Further, the Department requires 
additional time to review issues such as corporate affiliations and to 
analyze the changes in DSM's product-coding system as it will affect 
the Department's matching methodology in this case. Therefore, we are 
extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of this 
review by 45 days until December 15, 2008.
