SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On May 9, 2017, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
initiated less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigations of imports of 
certain cold-drawn mechanical tubing of carbon and alloy steel from 
Germany, India, Italy, Korea, the PRC, and Switzerland.\1\ Currently, 
the preliminary determinations are due no later than September 26, 
2017.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Certain Cold-Drawn Mechanical Tubing of Carbon and Alloy 
Steel from the Federal Republic of Germany, India, Italy, the 
Republic of Korea, the People's Republic of China, and Switzerland: 
Initiation of Less-Than-Fair-Value Investigations, 82 FR 22491 (May 
16, 2017).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Section 733(b)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), requires the Department to issue the preliminary determination in 
a LTFV investigation within 140 days after the date on which the 
Department initiated the investigation. However, section 733(c)(1)) of 
the Act permits the Department to postpone the preliminary 
determination until no later than 190 days after the date on which the 
Department initiated the investigation if: (A) The petitioner makes a 
timely request for a postponement; or (B) the Department concludes that 
the parties concerned are cooperating, that the investigation is 
extraordinarily complicated, and that additional time is necessary to 
make a preliminary determination. Under 19 CFR 351.205(e), the 
petitioner must submit a request for postponement 25 days or more 
before the scheduled date of the preliminary determination and must 
state the reasons for the request. The Department will grant the 
request unless it finds compelling reasons to deny the request. See 19 
CFR 351.205(e).
    On September 1, 2017, ArcelorMittal Tubular Products; Michigan 
Seamless Tube, LLC; PTC Alliance Corp.; Webco Industries, Inc.; and 
Zekelman Industries, Inc. (collectively, the petitioners) submitted 
timely requests pursuant to section 703(c)(1)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.205(e) to postpone the preliminary determinations in these LTFV 
investigations.\2\ The petitioners stated that they request 
postponement because the Department is still gathering data and 
questionnaire responses from the foreign producers in these 
investigations, and additional time is necessary for the Department and 
interested parties to fully and properly analyze all questionnaire 
responses.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See letters from the petitioners, ``Cold Drawn Mechanical 
Tubing from China, Germany, India, Italy, Korea and Switzerland--
Petitioners' Request to Postpone the Antidumping Duty Preliminary 
Determinations,'' dated September 1, 2017.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For the reasons stated above and because there are no compelling 
reasons to deny the request, the Department, in accordance with section 
733(c)(1)(A) of the Act, is postponing the deadline for the preliminary 
determinations by 50 days (i.e., 190 days after the date on which these 
investigations were initiated). As a result, the Department will issue 
its preliminary determinations no later than November 15, 2017. In 
accordance with section 735(a)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(1), 
the deadline for the final determinations of these investigations will 
continue to be 75 days after the date of publication of the preliminary 
determinations, unless postponed at a later date.
    This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 733(c)(2) 
of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(f)(1).

     Dated: September 6, 2017.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations, performing the non-exclusive functions and duties of the 
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
