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 stainless steel bar from Brazil for the period February 1, 2008, through January 31, 2009. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 74 FR 12310 (March 24, 2009). On October 29, 2009, we extended the time period for issuing the preliminary results of the review by 90 days until January 29, 2010. See Stainless Steel Bar From Brazil: Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 74 FR 55812 (October 29, 2009). 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 PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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 determination to a maximum of 365 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the order. 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 January 29, 2010, for several reasons. Specifically, the Department has granted the respondent, Villares Metals S.A. (Villares), several extensions to respond to the original and supplemental questionnaires. Thus, the Department needs additional time to review and analyze the responses submitted by Villares. Further, the Department requires additional time to review issues such as corporate affiliations and steel grades of products reported by Villares as they will affect the Department’s matching methodology in this case. Finally, in response to the petitioners’ cost allegation submitted on September 9, 2009, we initiated a cost investigation on October 28, 2009, and received Villares’s cost information on November 23, 2009. As a result, the Department requires additional time not only to review and analyze Villares’s cost information but also collect additional cost information. Therefore, we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of this review by 30 days until March 1, 2010. This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2). Dated: January 19, 2010. John M.

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 stainless steel bar from Brazil for the period 
February 1, 2008, through January 31, 2009. See Initiation of 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests 
for Revocation in Part, 74 FR 12310 (March 24, 2009). On October 29, 
2009, we extended the time period for issuing the preliminary results 
of the review by 90 days until January 29, 2010. See Stainless Steel 
Bar From Brazil: Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 74 FR 55812 (October 29, 2009).

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 determination to a maximum of 
365 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the order. 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 January 29, 2010, for 
several reasons. Specifically, the Department has granted the 
respondent, Villares Metals S.A. (Villares), several extensions to 
respond to the original and supplemental questionnaires. Thus, the 
Department needs additional time to review and analyze the responses 
submitted by Villares. Further, the Department requires additional time 
to review issues such as corporate affiliations and steel grades of 
products reported by Villares as they will affect the Department's 
matching methodology in this case. Finally, in response to the 
petitioners' cost allegation submitted on September 9, 2009, we 
initiated a cost investigation on October 28, 2009, and received 
Villares's cost information on November 23, 2009. As a result, the 
Department requires additional time not only to review and analyze 
Villares's cost information but also collect additional cost 
information. Therefore, we are extending the time period for issuing 
the preliminary results of this review by 30 days until March 1, 2010.
    This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) 
and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).
