SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On June 27, 2007, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') 
initiated the countervailing duty investigation of circular welded 
carbon quality steel pipe from the People's Republic of China. See 
Notice of Initiation of Countervailing Duty Investigation: Circular 
Welded Carbon Quality Steel Pipe from the People's Republic of China, 
72 FR 36668 (July 5, 2007). Currently, the preliminary determination is 
due no later than August 31, 2007.

Postponement of Due Date for Preliminary Determinations

    Section 703(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires the Department to issue the preliminary determination 
in a countervailing duty investigation within 65 days after the date on 
which the Department initiated the investigation. However, if the 
Department concludes that the parties concerned in the investigation 
are cooperating and determines that the investigation is 
extraordinarily complicated, section 703(c)(1)(B)(i) of the Act allows 
the Department to postpone making the preliminary determination until 
no later than the 130 days after the date on which the administering 
authority initiated the investigation.
    The Department concludes that, thus far, the parties concerned are 
cooperating. Furthermore, due to the complexity of the alleged 
countervailable subsidy practices being investigated, which include 
provision of goods or services for less than adequate remuneration and 
government restraints on exports, it is not practicable to complete the 
preliminary determination of this investigation within the original 
time limit (i.e., August 31, 2007). Therefore, in accordance with 
section 703(c)(1)(B)(i) of the Act, we are fully extending the due date 
for the preliminary determination to no later than 130 days after the 
day on which the investigation was initiated. As this deadline falls on 
a weekend, however, the fully extended deadline is the next business 
day, November 5, 2007.
    This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 703(c)(2) 
of the Act.

    Dated: July 26, 2007.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
