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 a postponement, 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 November 26, 2013, AK Steel Corporation, the petitioner in these 
investigations, requested that the deadline for the preliminary 
determination in each of these cases be postponed in accordance with 19 
CFR 351.205(b)(2). Therefore, in accordance with section 703(c)(1)(A) 
of the Act, we are fully postponing 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 Sunday 
(i.e., March 16, 2014), the deadline for completion of the preliminary 
determinations is now March 17, 2014, the next business day.
    This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 703(c)(2) 
of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(f)(1).
