SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On February 2, 2007, the U.S. Department of Commerce 
(``Department'') published a notice of initiation of the administrative 
review of the antidumping duty order on certain hot-rolled carbon steel 
flat products from India, covering the period December 1, 2005, to 
November 30, 2006. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 72 FR 
5005 (February 2, 2007). On December 31, 2007, the Department published 
the preliminary results of the antidumping duty administrative review 
for certain hot-rolled carbon steel flat products from India. See 
Certain Hot-Rolled Carbon Steel Flat Products from India: Notice of 
Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 72 FR 
74267 (December 31, 2007). On April 7, 2008, the Department partially 
extended the time limit for the final results of this review. See 
Certain Hot-Rolled Carbon Steel Flat Products from India: Extension of 
Time Limits for the Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative 
Review, 73 FR 18753 (April 7, 2008). The final results of this review 
are currently due no later than May 14, 2008.

Extension for Time Limit of Final Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires the Department to issue final results within 120 days 
after the date on which the preliminary results are published. However, 
if it is not practicable to complete the review within that time 
period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend 
the time limit for the final results to a maximum of 180 days. See also 
19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).
    We determine that it is not practicable to complete the final 
results of this review within the current time limit. Interested 
parties to this review submitted extensive comments and rebuttal 
comments on the preliminary results of this review, requiring 
substantial analysis by the Department. Thus, the Department is 
extending the final results by an additional 16 days, in accordance 
with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, to allow sufficient time to 
thoroughly analyze interested parties' case briefs and rebuttal briefs. 
The final results are now due no later than May 30, 2008. This 
extension is issued and published in accordance with sections 
751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: May 9, 2008.
Stephen J. Claeys,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
