On April 20, 2012, the Department reconsidered its determination to conduct expedited sunset reviews of these orders and determined to conduct full sunset reviews of the AD orders on CORE from Germany and Korea. See Memorandum to Barbara E. Tillman, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, from Melissa G. Skinner, Director, Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, Office 3, regarding ‘‘Sunset Reviews of the Antidumping Duty Orders on CorrosionResistant Carbon Steel Flat Products from Germany and South Korea: Adequacy Redetermination Memorandum,’’ (April 20, 2012). The preliminary results of these full sunset reviews are currently due April 23, 2012.1 Extension of Time Limits In accordance with section 751(c)(5)(B) of the Act, the Department may extend the period of time for making its determination by not more than 90 days, if it determines that the sunset review is extraordinarily complicated. We determine that these AD sunset reviews are extraordinarily complicated, pursuant to section 751(c)(5)(C) of the Act, because of a large number of complex issues in each review that the Department must analyze pursuant to the Final Modification for Reviews The preliminary results of these full sunset reviews of the AD orders on CORE from Germany and Korea are currently scheduled for April 23, 2012, and the final results of these reviews are scheduled for August 30, 2012. The Department is extending the deadlines for both the preliminary and final results of these full sunset reviews. As a result, the Department intends to issue the preliminary results of these full sunset reviews of the AD orders on CORE from Germany and Korea no later than July 21, 2012, and the final results of the reviews no later than November 1 The due date actually falls on April 22, 2012, which is a weekend. Therefore, the deadline moves to the next business day which is April 23, 2012. See Notice of Clarification: Application of ‘‘Next Business Day’’ Rule for Administrative Determination Deadlines Pursuant to the Tariff Act of 1930, As Amended; 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2008). VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:44 Apr 26, 2012 Jkt 226001 28, 2012. These dates are 90 days from the original scheduled dates of the preliminary and final results of these full sunset reviews. This notice is issued in accordance with sections 751(c)(5)(B) and (C)(v) of the Act. Dated: April 20, 2012. Barbara E. Tillman, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations.
