SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On July 2, 2009, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
initiated the countervailing duty investigation of wire decking from 
the People's Republic of China. See Wire Decking From the People's 
Republic of China: Initiation of Countervailing Duty Investigation, 74 
FR 31700 (July 2, 2009).

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, the 
Department may postpone making the preliminary determination until no 
later than 130 days after the date on which the administering authority 
initiated the investigation if, pursuant to section 703(c)(1)(B) of the 
Act, the Department concludes that the parties concerned in the 
investigation are cooperating and determines that the investigation is 
extraordinarily complicated and that ``additional time is necessary to 
the make the preliminary determination.''
    The Department is currently investigating a number of complex 
alleged subsidy programs, including various loan programs, 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 subsidy programs being investigated, we find that this 
investigation is extraordinarily complicated and that additional time 
is necessary to make the preliminary determination. 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. The 
deadline for completion of the preliminary determination is now 
November 2, 2009.
    This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 703(c)(2) 
of the Act.
