Postponement of Due Date for the 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 after the date on which Commerce initiated the investigation. However, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.205(e), 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, among other reasons, the petitioner makes a timely request for a postponement, or Commerce concludes that the parties concerned are cooperating and determines that the investigation is extraordinarily complicated. 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 reason for the request. Commerce will grant the request unless it finds compelling reasons to deny the request.2 In the instant investigation, the petitioner 3 made a timely request on May 2, 2019, that we postpone the preliminary CVD determination.4 The petitioner stated that additional time is necessary to allow Commerce to select 1 See Wooden Cabinets and Vanities and Components Thereof from the People’s Republic of China: Initiation of Countervailing Duty Investigation, 84 FR 12581 (April 2, 2019) (Initiation). 2 See 19 CFR 351.205(e). 3 In this investigation, the petitioner is the American Kitchen Cabinet Alliance and its individual members: ACProducts, Inc., American Woodmark Corporation, Bellmont Cabinet Co., Bertch Cabinet Manufacturing, The Corsi Group, Crystal Cabinet Works, Inc., Dura Supreme Cabinetry, Jim Bishop Cabinets, Inc., Kitchen Kompact, Inc., Koch & Co., Inc., Kountry Wood Products, LLC, Lanz Cabinets Incorporated, Leedo Cabinetry, Marsh Furniture Company, Master WoodCraft Cabinetry LLC, MasterBrand Cabinets, Inc., Nation’s Cabinetry, Showplace Wood Products, Inc., Smart Cabinetry, Tru Cabinetry, Wellborn Cabinet, Inc., Wellborn Forest Products, Inc., Woodland Cabinetry, Inc., Woodmont Cabinetry, W.

Therefore, pursuant to section 703(c)(1)(A) of the Act, we are extending the due date for the preliminary determination to no later than 130 days after the date on which this investigation was initiated, i.e., to August 5, 2019.6 Pursuant to section 705(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.

Rescission of Administrative Review It is Commerce’s practice to rescind an administrative review of a CVD order, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), when there are no reviewable entries of subject merchandise during the POR for which liquidation is suspended.5 Normally, upon completion of an administrative review of a CVD order, the suspended entries are liquidated at the assessment rate calculated for the review period.6 Therefore, for an administrative review to be conducted, there must be a reviewable, suspended entry for which Commerce can instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to liquidate at the newly calculated assessment rate.7 Based on our examination of the record, we continue to find that there is no evidence of reviewable entries, shipments, or U.S. sales of subject merchandise during the POR.8 Accordingly, in the absence of suspended entries of subject merchandise during the POR for this administrative review, Commerce is rescinding this administrative review of the CVD order on MCBs from China, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3). Commerce intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of this notice.

Rescission of Administrative Review

    It is Commerce's practice to rescind an administrative review of a 
CVD order, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), when there are no 
reviewable entries of subject merchandise during the POR for which 
liquidation is suspended.\5\ Normally, upon completion of an 
administrative review of a CVD order, the suspended entries are 
liquidated at the assessment rate calculated for the review period.\6\ 
Therefore, for an administrative review to be conducted, there must be 
a reviewable, suspended entry for which Commerce can instruct U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to liquidate at the newly 
calculated assessment rate.\7\ Based on our examination of the record, 
we continue to find that there is no evidence of reviewable entries, 
shipments, or U.S. sales of subject merchandise during the POR.\8\ 
Accordingly, in the absence of suspended entries of subject merchandise 
during the POR for this administrative review, Commerce is rescinding 
this administrative review of the CVD order on MCBs from China, 
pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3). Commerce intends to issue appropriate 
assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of 
this notice.
