Postponement of the Preliminary Determination

    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.
    On December 5, 2017, North Pacific Paper Company (NORPAC or the 
petitioner) submitted a timely request that we postpone the preliminary 
determination in this LTFV investigation. In its request, the 
petitioner cited the need to collect from the respondents supplemental 
information to address the serious issues raised in the petitioner's 
deficiency comments.\2\ 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 733(c)(1)(A) 
of the Act, we are postponing the deadline for the preliminary 
determination by 50 days (i.e., 190 days after the date on which the 
investigation was initiated). As a result, the Department will issue 
its preliminary determination no later than March 7, 2018. Pursuant to 
section 735(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 at a later date.
