Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires the Department to issue the preliminary results of an 
administrative review 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 results are published. If it is not practicable to complete 
the review within the time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act 
allows the Department to extend these deadlines to a maximum of 365 
days and 180 days, respectively.
    The review covers four manufacturers/exporters: JFE Steel 
Corporation; Nippon Steel Corporation; NKK Tubes; and Sumitomo Metal 
Industries, Ltd. These four manufacturers/exporters submitted letters 
to the Department certifying that they made no shipments or entries for 
consumption in the United States of the subject merchandise during the 
period of review (``POR''). In response to the Department's query to 
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP''), CBP data showed POR 
entries for consumption of subject merchandise that were manufactured 
by one of the respondent companies. The information regarding these 
entries has been placed on the record of this review under the terms of 
the administrative protective order. The Department solicited 
additional information and comments regarding these entries.
    On March 31, 2010, CBP notified the Department that there were 
additional POR entries for consumption of the subject merchandise 
manufactured by one of the four respondent companies. The Department is 
awaiting documentation for these entries.
    Because the Department requires additional time to analyze this new 
information, it is not practicable to complete this review within the 
initial time extension of April 8, 2010. Therefore, the Department is 
further extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary 
results by an additional 90 days to July 7, 2010, in accordance with 
section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and section 351.213(h)(2) of the 
Department's regulations.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
