SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On July 29, 2019, the U.S. Department of Commerce (Commerce) 
initiated less-than-fair-value (LFTV) investigations of imports of 
utility scale wind towers from Canada, Indonesia, Korea, and 
Vietnam.\1\ Currently, the preliminary determinations are due no later 
than December 16, 2019.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Utility Scale Wind Towers from Canada, Indonesia, the 
Republic of Korea, and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Initiation 
of Less-Than-Fair-Value Investigations, 84 FR 37992 (August 5, 
2019).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Postponement of Preliminary Determinations

    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 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. 
Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.205(e), the petitioner must submit a request to 
postpone 25 days or more before the scheduled date of the preliminary 
determination and must state the reasons for postponement. Commerce 
will grant the request unless it finds compelling reasons to deny the 
request. See 19 CFR 351.205(e).
    On November 19, 2019, the petitioner \2\ submitted timely requests 
that Commerce postpone the preliminary determinations in these LTFV 
investigations.\3\ The petitioner stated that the purpose of its 
requests is to provide Commerce with adequate time to solicit 
information from the respondents and to allow Commerce sufficient time 
to analyze the respondents' questionnaire responses.\4\ In accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.205(e), there are no compelling reasons to deny the 
request. Therefore, in accordance with section 733(c)(1)(A) of the Act 
and 19 CFR 351.205(e), we are postponing the preliminary determinations 
in these LTFV investigations by 50 days (i.e., 190 days after the date 
on which these investigations were initiated). Accordingly, Commerce is 
postponing the deadline for the preliminary determinations to February 
4, 2020. Pursuant to section 735(a)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.210(b)(1), the deadline for the final determinations of these 
investigations will continue to be 75 days after the date of the 
preliminary determinations, unless postponed.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ The petitioner in these LTFV investigations is the Wind 
Tower Trade Coalition.
    \3\ See Petitioner's Letters, ``Utility Scale Wind Towers from 
Canada: Request to Postpone Preliminary Determination,'' ``Utility 
Scale Wind Towers from Indonesia: Request to Postpone Preliminary 
Determination,'' ``Utility Scale Wind Towers from the Republic of 
Korea: Request to Postpone Preliminary Determination,'' and

Request to Postpone Preliminary Determination,'' dated November 19, 
2019.
