Background

    On September 22, 2009, the U.S. Department of Commerce 
(``Department'') published a notice of initiation of the administrative 
review of the antidumping duty order on corrosion-resistant carbon 
steel flat products from the Republic of Korea, covering the period 
August 1, 2008 to July 31, 2009. See Initiation of Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation 
in Part, 74 FR 48224 (September 22, 2009). The preliminary results of 
this review were due no later than May 3, 2010. As explained in the 
memorandum from the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import 
Administration, the Department has exercised its discretion to toll 
deadlines for the duration of the closure of the Federal Government 
from February 5, through February 12, 2010. Thus, all deadlines in this 
segment of the proceeding have been extended by seven days. The revised 
deadline for the preliminary results of this review is now May 10, 
2010. See Memorandum to the Record from Ronald Lorentzen, DAS for 
Import Administration, regarding ``Tolling of Administrative Deadlines 
as a Result of the Government Closure During the Recent Snowstorm,'' 
dated February 12, 2010.

Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires that the Department make a preliminary determination 
within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order 
for which a review is requested. Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act 
further states that if it is not practicable to complete the review 
within the time period specified, the administering authority may 
extend the 245-day period to issue its preliminary results to up to 365 
days.
    We determine that completion of the preliminary results of this 
review within the 245-day period is not practicable. Additional time is 
needed to gather and analyze a significant amount of information 
pertaining to sales practices, manufacturing costs and corporate 
relationships pertaining to each company participating in the review. 
Given the number and complexity of issues in this case, and in 
accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, we are fully extending 
the time period for issuing the preliminary results of review. 
Therefore, the preliminary results are now due no later than September 
7, 2010. The final results continue to be due 120 days after 
publication of the preliminary results.
    This notice is published pursuant to sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 
777(i)(1) of the Act.
