SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Postponement of Preliminary Determinations On November 17, 2015, the Department of Commerce (the Department) initiated antidumping duty investigations of imports of circular welded carbon-quality steel pipe (CWP) from Oman, Pakistan, the UAE and Vietnam.1 The notice of initiation stated that we would issue our preliminary determinations no later than 140 days after the date of initiation.
