SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On June 4, 2008, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published a notice of initiation of administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on certain steel concrete reinforcing bars 
(rebar) from Turkey. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 73 FR 
31813 (June 4, 2008). The period of review is April 1, 2007, through 
March 31, 2008, and the preliminary results are currently due no later 
than December 31, 2008. The review covers seven producers/exporters of 
the subject merchandise to the United States.

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(the Act), the Department shall make a preliminary determination in an 
administrative review of an antidumping order within 245 days after the 
last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the 
order. Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act further provides, however, that 
the Department may extend the 245-day period to 365 days if it 
determines it is not practicable to complete the review within the 
foregoing time period. We determine that it is not practicable to 
complete this administrative review within the time limits mandated by 
section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. Although the Department has received 
the initial questionnaire responses from most of the respondents, upon 
review of the questionnaire responses, the Department believes it needs 
to issue supplemental questionnaires to clarify responses on the 
record. Preparing these supplemental questionnaires and analyzing the 
respondents' responses requires additional time. Therefore, we have 
fully extended the deadline for completing the preliminary results 
until April 30, 2009. The deadline for the final results of the review 
continues to be 120 days after the publication of the preliminary 
results.
    This extension notice is published in accordance with sections 
751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: November 3, 2008.
