SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES On June 11, 2018, the Department of Commerce (Commerce) initiated a countervailing duty (CVD) investigation of imports of steel propane cylinders from the People’s Republic of China (China).1 Currently, the preliminary determination is due no later than August 15, 2018. Postponement of Preliminary Determinations Section 703(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires Commerce to issue the preliminary 1 See Steel Propane Cylinders From the People’s Republic of China: Initiation of Countervailing Duty Investigation, 83 FR 28189 (June 18, 2018) (Initiation Notice). VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:07 Jul 31, 2018 Jkt 244001 determination in a countervailing duty investigation within 65 days after the date on which Commerce initiated the investigation. However, section 703(c)(1) of the Act permits Commerce to postpone the preliminary determination until no later than 130 days after the date on which Commerce initiated the investigation if: (A) The petitioner 2 makes a timely request for a postponement; or (B) Commerce 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. Commerce will grant the request unless it finds compelling reasons to deny the request. On July 20, 2018, the petitioners submitted a timely request that Commerce postpone the preliminary CVD determination.3 The petitioners stated that the purpose of their request is to provide Commerce with adequate time to analyze fully questionnaire responses from the Government of China and the mandatory respondents and to determine the extent to which the respondents received countervailable subsidies.4 In accordance with 19 CFR 351.205(e), the petitioners have stated the reasons for requesting a postponement of the preliminary determination, and Commerce finds no compelling reason to deny the request. Therefore, in accordance with section 703(c)(1)(A) of the Act, Commerce is postponing the deadline for the preliminary determination to no later than 130 days after the date on which this investigation was initiated, i.e., October 19, 2018. Pursuant to section 705(a)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(1), the deadline for the final determination of this investigation will continue to be 75 days after the date of the preliminary determination. This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 703(c)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(f)(1). 2 The petitioners are Worthington Industries and Manchester Tank & Equipment Co. 3 See the petitioners’ letter, ‘‘Steel Propane Cylinders from the People’s Republic of China— Petitioners’ Request to Postpone Preliminary Determination,’’ dated July 20, 2018. 4 Id.
