SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On May 6, 2020, the Department of Commerce (Commerce) initiated a 
countervailing duty (CVD) investigation on imports of prestressed 
concrete steel wire strand (PC strand) from the Republic of Turkey 
(Turkey).\1\ Currently, the preliminary determination is due no later 
than July 10, 2020.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Prestressed Concrete Steel Wire Strand from the Republic 
of Turkey: Initiation of Countervailing Duty Investigation, 85 FR 
28610 (May 13, 2020).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Postponement of 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, 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: (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 June 12, 2020, the petitioners \3\ submitted a timely request 
that Commerce postpone the preliminary CVD determination.\4\ The 
petitioners request postponement to allow the petitioners and other 
interested parties additional time to analyze the initial questionnaire 
responses submitted by respondents and the Government of Turkey, and 
for Commerce to request additional or clarifying information, if 
necessary.\5\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ The petitioners consist of Insteel Wire Products Company, 
Sumiden Wire Products Corporation, and Wire Mesh Corporation.
    \4\ See Petitioners' Letter, ``Prestressed Concrete Steel Wire 
Strand from the Republic of Turkey--Petitioners' Request to Postpone 
Preliminary Determination,'' dated June 12, 2020.
    \5\ Id. at 2.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.205(e), the petitioners have stated 
the reasons for requesting a postponement of the preliminary 
determination, and Commerce finds no compelling reason to deny the 
request. Therefore, pursuant with section 703(c)(1)(A) of the Act, 
Commerce is postponing the deadline for the preliminary determination 
to no later than 130 days after the day on which these investigations 
were initiated, i.e., September 14, 2020.\6\ Pursuant to section 
705(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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ The 130th day falls on Sunday, September 13, 2020. It is 
Commerce's practice that where a deadline falls on a weekend or 
federal holiday, the appropriate deadline is the next business day. 
See Notice of Clarification: Application of ``Next Business Day'' 
Rule for Administrative Determination Deadlines Pursuant to the 
Tariff Act of 1930, As Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005).
