Background

On December 15, 2010, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published the preliminary results of administrative review of certain circular welded non-alloy steel pipe from Mexico for the November 1, 2008, through October 31, 2009, period of review. See Certain Circular Welded Non-Alloy Steel Pipe From Mexico: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review,75 FR 78216 (December 15, 2010). The final results for this administrative review are currently due no later than April 14, 2011.

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 complete the final results of an administrative review within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. However, 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 120 day time period for the final results to 180 days.

The Department has determined it is not practicable to complete this review within the statutory time limit because of significant issues that require additional time to evaluate. These issues include complicated questions involving various cost accounting issues, use of multiple unaffiliated suppliers' costs, and proper application of facts available. Accordingly, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the final results of this administrative review until no later than June 13, 2011, which is 180 days after the date on which the preliminary results of review were published.

This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

Dated: March 10, 2011. Christian Marsh,

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations.
