SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On October 10, 2018, the Department of Commerce (Commerce) initiated the countervailing duty (CVD) investigation of imports of refillable stainless steel kegs (kegs) from the People’s Republic of China.1 The preliminary determination is currently due no later than December 14, 2018. Postponement of Preliminary Determination Section 703(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires Commerce to issue the preliminary determination in a CVD investigation within 65 days of the date on which Commerce initiated the investigation. However, if the petitioner makes a request for an extension of the period within which the determination must be made, section 703(c)(1)(A) of the Act allows Commerce to postpone making the preliminary determination until no later than 130 days after the date on which the administering authority initiated the investigation. On November 27, 2018, the petitioner 2 submitted a request pursuant to section 703(c)(1)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(e) to postpone the preliminary determination.3 The petitioner states that additional time is necessary in light of the number of programs under investigation and the expected complexity of the issues. For the reasons stated above, Commerce, in accordance with section 703(c)(l)(B) of the Act, is postponing the deadline for the preliminary determination to no later than 130 days after the day on which Commerce initiated this investigation. Therefore, 1 See Refillable Stainless Steel Kegs: Initiation of Countervailing Duty Investigation, 83 FR 52192 (October 16, 2018). 2 The petitioner is American Keg Company LLC. 3 See the petitioner’s Letter dated November 27, 2018, requesting postponement of the preliminary determination.
