SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On August 17, 2015, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
initiated antidumping duty (AD) investigations of imports of certain 
cold-rolled steel flat products (cold-rolled steel) from Brazil, the 
PRC, India, Japan, Korea, Russia, and the United Kingdom.\1\ The notice 
of initiation stated that, in accordance with section 733(b)(l)(A) of 
the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.205(b)(1), 
we would issue our preliminary determinations no later than 140 days 
after the date of initiation, unless postponed. Currently, the 
preliminary determinations in these investigations are due no later 
than January 4, 2016.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Certain Cold-Rolled Steel Flat Products From Brazil, the 
People's Republic of China, India, Japan, the Republic of Korea, the 
Netherlands, the Russian Federation, and the United Kingdom: 
Initiation of Less-Than-Fair-Value Investigations, 80 FR 51198 
(August 24, 2015). The investigation on cold-rolled steel from the 
Netherlands was terminated as a result of a negative preliminary 
injury determination by the International Trade Commission. See

Postponement of Preliminary Determinations

    Sections 733(c)(1)(B)(i) and (ii) of the Act permit the Department 
to postpone the time limit for the preliminary determination if it 
concludes that the parties concerned are cooperating and determines 
that the case is extraordinarily complicated by reason of the number 
and complexity of the transactions to be investigated or adjustments to 
be considered, the novelty of the issues presented, or the number of 
firms whose activities must be investigated, and additional time is 
necessary to make the preliminary determination. Under this section of 
the Act, the Department may postpone the preliminary determination 
until no later than 190 days after the date on which the Department 
initiated the investigation.
    The Department determines that the parties involved in the cold-
rolled steel AD investigations on Brazil, India, Japan, the Republic of 
Korea, the Russian Federation, and the United Kingdom are cooperating, 
and that the investigations are extraordinarily complicated. Additional 
time is required to analyze the questionnaire responses and issue 
appropriate requests for clarification and additional information. With 
regard to the PRC investigation, this case has necessitated multiple 
rounds of quantity and value questionnaires, independent research into 
respondent locations, and ongoing analysis. As with the other 
investigations, we consider this case to be extraordinarily complicated 
and will require additional time to explore our options moving forward.
    Therefore, in accordance with section 733(c)(1)(B) of the Act and 
19 CFR 351.205(f)(1), the Department is postponing the time period for 
the preliminary determinations of these investigations by 50 days, to 
February 23, 2016. Pursuant to section 735(a)(l) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.210(b)(1), the deadline for the final determinations will continue 
to be 75 days after the date of the preliminary determinations, unless 
postponed at a later date.
    This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 733(c)(2) 
of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(f)(1).

    Dated: November 20, 2015.

Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
