SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On May 5, 2008, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') 
initiated the countervailing duty investigation of citric acid and 
certain citrate salts from the People's Republic of China. See Notice

(May 12, 2008). Currently, the preliminary determination is due no 
later than July 9, 2008.

Postponement of Due Date for Preliminary Determination

    On June 6, 2008, the Department received a request from Archer 
Daniels Midland Company, Cargill, and Tate & Lyle Americas, Inc. 
(collectively, ``the petitioners'') to postpone the preliminary 
determination of the countervailing duty investigation of citric acid 
and certain citrate salts from the PRC. Under section 703(c)(1)(A) of 
the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), the Department may extend 
the period for reaching a preliminary determination in a countervailing 
duty investigation until not later than the 130th day after the date on 
which the administering authority initiates an investigation if the 
petitioner makes a timely request for an extension of the period within 
which the determination must be made under subsection (b) (section 
703(b) of the Act). Pursuant to section 351.205(e) of the Department's 
regulations, the petitioners' request for postponement of the 
preliminary determination was made 25 days or more before the scheduled 
date of the preliminary determination. Accordingly, we are extending 
the due date for the preliminary determination by 65 days to no later 
than September 12, 2008.
    This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 703(c)(2) 
of the Act.
