SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On November 1, 2016, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) published Initiation of Five-Year (‘‘Sunset’’) Review, 81 FR 75808 (November 1, 2016) in which the Department inadvertently listed the incorrect case number for Gray Portland Cement Clinker from Japan.

Section 703(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires the Department to issue the preliminary determination in a CVD investigation within 65 days of the date on which the Department initiated the investigation.

The Department determines that the parties concerned are currently cooperating and that the investigation is extraordinarily complicated, such that it will need more time to make the preliminary determination.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On October 11, 2016, the Department of Commerce (the Department)

reinforcing bar from the Republic of Turkey.\1\ Currently, the

Turkey: Initiation of Countervailing Duty Investigation, 81 FR 71705 
(October 18, 2016).

Postponement of 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 CVD 
investigation within 65 days of the date on which the Department 
initiated the investigation. However, if the Department concludes that 
the parties concerned are cooperating and that the case is 
extraordinarily complicated, such that additional time is necessary to 
make the preliminary determination, section 703(c)(1)(B) of the Act 
allows the Department to postpone making the preliminary determination 
until no later than 130 days after the date on which the administering 
authority initiated the investigation.
    The Department determines that the parties concerned are currently 
cooperating and that the investigation is extraordinarily complicated, 
such that it will need more time to make the preliminary determination. 
Specifically, in addition to evaluating the financial contribution and 
specificity of numerous national and regional programs, the Department 
will analyze the provision of several inputs for less than adequate 
remuneration and will consider a more-than-adequate-remuneration 
program for the first time in a proceeding involving the Republic of 
Turkey.
    For the reasons stated above, the Department, in accordance with 
section 703(c)(l)(B) of the Act, is postponing the deadline for the 
preliminary determination to no later than 130 days after the day on 
which the Department initiated this investigation. Therefore, the new 
deadline for the preliminary determination is February 21, 2017.\2\ 
Pursuant to section 705(a)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(1), the 
deadline for the final determination will continue to be 75 days after 
the date of the preliminary determination, unless postponed.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ Department practice dictates that, when a deadline falls on 
a weekend or a federal holiday, the appropriate deadline is the next 
business day. See Notice of Clarification: Application of the ``Next 
Business Day'' Rule for Administrative Determination Deadlines 
Pursuant to the Tariff Act of 1930, as Amended, 70 FR 24533, 24533 
(May 10, 2005). Because February 18, 2017, falls on a Saturday and 
February 20, 2017, is a federal holiday, the appropriate deadline 
for the preliminary determination in this investigation is February 
21, 2017.

703(c)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(f)(1).
