Postponement of Final Determination

    Section 735(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), 
and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(2) provide that a final determination may be 
postponed until not later than 135 days after the date of the 
publication of the preliminary determination if, in the event of an 
affirmative preliminary determination, a request for such postponement 
is made by the exporters or producers who account for a significant 
proportion of exports of the subject merchandise, or in the event of a 
negative preliminary determination, a request for such postponement is 
made by the petitioner. Further, 19 CFR 351.210(e)(2) requires that 
such postponement requests by exporters be accompanied by a request for 
extension of provisional measures from a four-month period to a period 
of not more than six months, in accordance with section 733(d) of the 
Act.
    On February 11, 2020, CS Wind Vietnam Co., Ltd. (CS Wind), the 
mandatory respondent in this investigation, requested that Commerce 
postpone the deadline for the final determination until no later than 
135 days from the publication of the Preliminary Determination, and 
extend the application of the provisional measures from a four-month 
period to a period of not more than six months.\3\ In accordance with 
section 735(a)(2)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(2)(ii), because: 
(1) The preliminary determination was affirmative; (2) the request was 
made by the exporter and producer who accounts for a significant 
proportion of exports of the subject merchandise; and (3) no compelling 
reasons for denial exist, Commerce is postponing the final 
determination until no later than 135 days after the date of the 
publication of the Preliminary Determination, and extending the 
provisional measures from a four-month period to a period of not more 
than six months. Accordingly, Commerce will issue its final 
determination no later than June 29, 2020.\4\

Final Determination: Less Than Fair Value Investigation of Utility 
Scale Wind Towers from Vietnam (A-552-825),'' dated February 11, 
2020.
    \4\ Postponing the final determination to 135 days after the 
publication of the Preliminary Determination would place the 
deadline on Sunday, June 28, 2020. Commerce's practice dictates that 
where a deadline falls on a weekend or federal holiday, the 
appropriate deadline is the next business day. See Notice of
