The Department will grant the request unless it finds compelling reasons to deny the request. See 19 CFR 351.205(e). On November 7, 2017, the petitioner submitted a timely request that the Department postpone the preliminary determinations in these LTFV investigations.3 The petitioner stated that it requests postponement because the Department is still gathering data and questionnaire responses, and additional time is necessary for the Department and interested parties to review and analyze all questionnaire responses, as well as for interested parties to comment on these responses.4 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 January 23, 2018. 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 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). Since the Final Determination, the Department has not established a new cash deposit rate for PT or all other producers and exporters. As a result, in accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect cash deposits at the rates for entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the rates for exporters and producers listed above in this notice, effective October 14, 2017. Background Notification to Interested Parties Section 733(b)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires the Department to issue the preliminary determination in an 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 2 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On July 17, 2017, the Department of Commerce (the Department)

Postponement of Preliminary Determinations

    Section 733(b)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), requires the Department to issue the preliminary determination in 
an 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 \2\ 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).

    \2\ The petitioner is Nan Ya Plastics Corporation, America.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On November 7, 2017, the petitioner submitted a timely request that 
the Department postpone the preliminary determinations in these LTFV 
investigations.\3\ The petitioner stated that it requests postponement 
because the Department is still gathering data and questionnaire 
responses, and additional time is necessary for the Department and 
interested parties to review and analyze all questionnaire responses, 
as well as for interested parties to comment on these responses.\4\

Fiber from the Republic of Korea and Taiwan--Petitioners' Request to 
Postpone the Antidumping Duty Preliminary Determinations, dated 
November 7, 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 January 23, 2018. 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 the preliminary 
determinations, unless postponed at a later date.
