SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On April 23, 2008, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
initiated the countervailing duty investigation of circular welded 
carbon quality steel line pipe from the People's Republic of China. See 
Circular Welded Carbon Quality Steel Line Pipe from the People's 
Republic of China: Notice of Initiation of Countervailing Duty 
Investigation, 73 FR 23184 (April 29, 2008). Currently, the preliminary 
determination is due no later than June 27, 2008.

Postponement of Due Date for Preliminary Determination

    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) of the Act allows the 
Department to postpone making the preliminary determination until no 
later than 130 days after the date on which the administering authority 
initiated the investigation.
    The Department is currently investigating alleged subsidy programs 
involving debt-for-equity swaps, loans, grants, income tax incentives, 
and the provision of goods and services for less than adequate 
remuneration. Due to the number and complexity of the alleged 
countervailable subsidy practices being investigated, it is not 
practicable to complete the preliminary determination of this 
investigation within the original time limit (i.e., by June 27, 2008). 
Therefore, in accordance with section 703(c)(1)(B) 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. However, as that date falls on a Sunday, the deadline for 
completion of the preliminary determination is now September 2, 2008, 
the next business day after the Labor Day holiday.
    This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 703(c)(2) 
of the Act.

    Dated: May 30, 2008.
David M. Spooner,
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
