SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On April 19, 2011, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
initiated the countervailing duty investigation of bottom mount 
combination refrigerator-freezers from the Republic of Korea. See 
Bottom Mount Combination Refrigerator-Freezers From the Republic of 
Korea: Initiation of Countervailing Duty Investigation, 76 FR 23298 
(April 26, 2011). Currently, the preliminary determination is due no 
later than June 23, 2011.

Postponement of Due Date for the 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, among other reasons, the petitioner 
makes a timely request for an extension pursuant to section 
703(c)(1)(A) of the Act. In the instant investigation, the petitioner, 
Whirlpool Corporation, made a timely request on May 9, 2011, requesting 
a postponement of the preliminary countervailing duty determination to 
130 days from the initiation date. See 19 CFR 351.205(e) and the 
petitioner's May 9, 2011, letter requesting postponement of the 
preliminary determination, which is available in the Central Records 
Unit, Room 7046 in the Department's main building.
    The Department finds no compelling reason to deny the request. 
Therefore, pursuant to section 703(c)(1)(A) of the Act, we are 
extending the due date for the preliminary determination to no later 
than 130 days after the date on which this investigation was initiated, 
i.e., to August 27, 2011. However, August 27, 2011 falls on a Saturday. 
It is the Department's long-standing practice to make a determination 
on the next business day when the statutory deadline falls on a 
weekend, federal holiday, or any other day when the Department is 
closed. See Notice of Clarification: Application of ``Next Business 
Day'' Rule for Administrative Determination Deadlines Pursuant to the 
Tariff Act of 1930, As Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005). 
Accordingly, the Department will make its preliminary determination on 
August 29, 2011, the first business day after August 27, 2011.
    This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 703(c)(2) 
of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(f)(l).

    Dated: May 26, 2011.
