Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and the Socialist Republic of

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Postponement of Due Date for Preliminary Determinations

    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 
petitioner makes a timely request for an extension, section 
703(c)(1)(A) 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.
    On February 8, 2013, the Coalition of Gulf Shrimp Industries, the 
petitioner in these investigations, requested that the deadline for the 
preliminary determination in each of these cases be extended to 130 
days from the date of initiation in accordance with 19 CFR Sec.  
351.205(b)(2). Therefore, in accordance with section 703(c)(1)(A) of 
the Act, 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. However, as that date falls on a federal 
holiday (i.e., May 27, 2013), the deadline for completion of the 
preliminary determinations is now May 28, 2013, the next business day.
    This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 703(c)(2) 
of the Act.

    Dated: February 21, 2013.
