SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On September 22, 2014, the Department of Commerce (the 
``Department'') initiated the countervailing duty investigation of 
boltless steel shelving units prepackaged for sale (``steel shelves'') 
from the People's Republic of China (``PRC'').\1\ Currently, the 
preliminary determination is due no later than November 19, 2014.

the People's Republic of China: Initiation of Countervailing Duty 
Investigation, 79 FR 56567 (September 22, 2014).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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, section 703(c)(1) of the Act permits the Department to 
postpone making the preliminary determination until no later than 130 
days after the date on which it initiated the investigation if, among 
other reasons, the petitioner makes a timely request for a 
postponement, or the Department concludes that the parties concerned 
are cooperating and determines that the investigation is 
extraordinarily complicated. On October 21, 2014, Edsal Manufacturing 
Co., Inc. (``Petitioner'') made a timely request to postpone the 
preliminary countervailing duty determination.\2\ Moreover, the 
Department has not yet chosen mandatory respondents. In addition, the 
Department determines that, thus far, the parties concerned are 
cooperating because each has made an entry of appearance in this 
investigation.\3\ Also, the Department must analyze 19 complicated 
programs \4\ for each respondent, including companies that are cross-
owned with each respondent, and likely issue multiple supplemental 
questionnaires. For all these reasons, the Department finds this 
investigation to be extraordinarily complicated within the meaning of 
section 703(c)(1)(B) of the Act, and is hereby fully postponing the 
preliminary countervailing duty determination by 130 days. Therefore, 
pursuant to the discretion afforded to the Department under section 
703(c)(1)(B) of the Act, we are postponing the due date for the 
preliminary determination to no later than January 23, 2015.
