[[Page 74764]]

    On April 5, 2016, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
initiated an antidumping duty investigation of imports of phosphor 
copper from the Republic of Korea (Korea).\1\ The period of 
investigation is January 1, 2015, through December 31, 2015. On October 
5, 2016, the Department published its affirmative Preliminary 
Determination in the LTFV investigation of phosphor copper from

(Bongsan), the sole mandatory respondent in this investigation, 
requested that the Department fully extend the deadline for the final 
determination and extend the application of the provisional measures 
from a four-month period to a period of not more than six months.\3\

Postponement of Final Determination

    Section 735(a)(2)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(2)(ii) provide that a final determination 
may be postponed until not later than 135 days after the date of the 
publication of the preliminary determination if, in the event of an 
affirmative preliminary determination, a request for such postponement 
is made by the exporters or producers who account for a significant 
proportion of exports of the subject merchandise. Further, 19 CFR 
351.210(e)(2) requires that such postponement requests by exporters be 
accompanied by a request for extension of provisional measures from a 
four-month period to a period of not more than six months, in 
accordance with section 733(d) of the Act.
    In accordance with section 735(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.210(b)(2)(ii), because (1) our preliminary determination was 
affirmative; (2) the request was made by the exporter/producer who 
accounts for a significant proportion of exports of the subject 
merchandise; and (3) no compelling reasons for denial exist, we are 
postponing the final determination until no later than 135 days after 
the date of the publication of the Preliminary Determination and 
extending the provisional measures from a four-month period to a period 
of not more than six months. Accordingly, we will issue our final 
determination no later than February 27, 2017.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ Postponing the final determination to 135 days after the 
publication of the Preliminary Determination would place the 
deadline on Sunday, February 26, 2017. The Department's practice 
dictates that where a deadline falls on a weekend or federal 
holiday, the appropriate deadline is the next business day. See 
Notice of Clarification: Application of ``Next Business Day'' Rule

Act of 1930, As Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005).
