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 countervailing duty investigation within 65 days after the date on which the Department initiated the investigation. However, section 703(c)(1) of the Act permits the Department to postpone the preliminary determination until no later than 130 days after the date on which the Department initiated the investigation 1 See Ripe Olives from Spain: Initiation of Countervailing Duty Investigation, 82 FR 33050 (July 19, 2017).

The Department will grant the request unless it finds compelling reasons to deny the request. On August 7, 2017, the petitioner submitted a timely request that we postpone the preliminary CVD determination.3 The petitioner stated that it requests postponement because the Department continues to gather ‘‘questionnaire responses from the Government of Spain, the European Union, and the mandatory respondents in this investigation. Thus, extra time is needed to permit the Department . . . to analyze fully the questionnaire responses, request any necessary clarifications, and determine the extent to which countervailable subsidies have been bestowed on the respondents.’’ 4 In accordance with 19 CFR 351.205(e), the petitioner has stated the reasons for requesting a postponement of the preliminary determination, and the Department finds no compelling reason to deny the request. Therefore, pursuant to section 703(c)(1)(A) of the Act, we are extending the due date for the preliminary determination to no later than 130 days after the date on which this investigation was initiated, i.e., to 2 In this investigation, the petitioner is the Coalition for Fair Trade in Ripe Olives and its individual members, Bell-Carter Foods, Inc. and Musco Family Olive Co. 3 See Letter from the petitioner, ‘‘Ripe Olives from Spain—Request for Postponement of Preliminary Determination’’ (August 7, 2017). 4 Id.
