Circular Welded Carbon-Quality Steel Pipe From India, the 
Sultanate of Oman, the United Arab Emirates, and the Socialist Republic

Countervailing Duty Investigations

Background

    On November 15, 2011, the Department of Commerce (the 
``Department'') initiated countervailing duty investigations of 
circular welded carbon-quality steel pipe (``certain steel pipe'') from 
India, the Sultanate of Oman (``Oman''), The United Arab Emirates 
(``the UAE''), and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (``Vietnam''). See 
Circular Welded Carbon-Quality Steel Pipe From India, the Sultanate of 
Oman, the United Arab Emirates, and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: 
Initiation of Countervailing Duty Investigations, 76 FR 72173 (November 
22, 2011). Currently, the preliminary determinations are due no later 
than January 19, 2012.

Postponement of Due Date for Preliminary Determinations

    On December 6, 2011, the Department received a request from 
Wheatland Tube (one of the petitioners in these investigations) to 
postpone the preliminary determinations of the countervailing duty 
investigations of certain steel pipe from India, Oman, the UAE, and 
Vietnam. 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 no later than the 130th day after the date on which 
the administering authority initiates an investigation if the 
petitioner makes a timely request. In accordance with 19 CFR 
351.205(e), Wheatland Tube's request for postponement of the 
preliminary determinations was made 25 days or more before the 
scheduled date of the preliminary determinations. Thus, we are fully 
extending the due date for the preliminary determinations to no later 
than 130 days after the day on which the investigations were initiated 
(i.e., March 24, 2012). However, March 24, 2012, falls on a Saturday 
and it is the Department's long-standing practice to issue a 
determination 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 deadline for completion of the preliminary 
determinations is now no later than March 26, 2012.
    This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 703(c)(2) 
of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(e).

    Dated: December 12, 2011.

Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
