As a result, the Department will issue its preliminary determination no later than June 27, 2016.5 In accordance with section 735(a)(1) of the Act, the deadline for the final determination of this investigation will continue to be 75 days after the date of the preliminary determination, unless postponed at a later date. This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 703(c)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(f)(1). Dated: March 9, 2016. Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
