    On April 17, 2019, the Department of Commerce (Commerce) initiated

Postponement of Preliminary Determination

    Section 733(b)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), requires Commerce to issue the preliminary determination in an 
LTFV investigation within 140 days after the date on which

[[Page 43581]]

Commerce initiated the investigation. However, section 733(c)(1) of the 
Act permits Commerce to postpone the preliminary determination until no 
later than 190 days after the date on which Commerce initiated the 
investigation if: (A) The petitioner 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.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See 19 CFR 351.205(e).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On July 24, 2019, the petitioners \3\ submitted a timely request 
that Commerce postpone the preliminary determination in this LTFV 
investigation.\4\ The petitioners stated that the purpose of their 
request is to provide Commerce with adequate time to solicit 
information from the respondents and to allow Commerce and the 
petitioners sufficient time to analyze the respondents' questionnaire 
responses.\5\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ The petitioners are Cooper Natural Resources, Inc., 
Elementis Global LLC, and Searles Valley Minerals.
    \4\ See Petitioners' Letter, ``Sodium Sulfate Anhydrous from 
Canada: Petitioners' Request to Postpone the Antidumping 
Investigation Preliminary Determination,'' dated July 24, 2019.
    \5\ Id.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For the reasons stated above, and because there are no compelling 
reasons to deny the request, Commerce, in accordance with section 
733(c)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(e), is postponing the deadline 
for the preliminary determination by 50 days (i.e., 190 days after the 
date on which this investigation was initiated). As a result, Commerce 
will issue its preliminary determination no later than October 24, 
2019.
    Pursuant to section 735(a)(l) 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.
