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. On June 3, 2020, the petitioner submitted a timely request that Commerce postpone the preliminary determination in the LTFV investigation.3 The petitioner stated that it requests postponement of the preliminary determination because ‘‘{a}dditional time will be necessary to ensure that Commerce is able to sufficiently review all questionnaire responses and request clarification and additional information as necessary.’’ 4 For the reason stated above and because there are no compelling reasons to deny the request, Commerce, in accordance with section 733(c)(1)(A) of the Act, is postponing the deadline for the preliminary determination by 50 days (i.e., to 190 days after the date on which this investigation was initiated). As a result, Commerce will issue its preliminary determination no later than September 2, 2020. In accordance with section 735(a)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(1), the deadline for the final determination of this investigation will continue to be 75 days after the date of the preliminary determination, unless postponed at a later date.
