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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On April 1, 2020, Commerce published a notice of initiation of the second sunset review of the AD order on OCTG from China, pursuant to section 751(c)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).1 On April 14, 2020, and April 16, 2020, Commerce received notices of intent to participate in this review from Maverick Tube Corporation (Maverick), Tenaris Bay City, Inc. (Tenaris), IPSCO Tubulars, Inc. (IPSCO), BENTELER Steel/Tube Manufacturing Corp. (BENTELER), United States Steel Corporation (U.S. Steel), Welded Tube USA Inc. (Welded Tube), and Vallourec Star, L.P. (Vallourec) (collectively, domestic interested parties) within the deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i).2 The domestic interested parties claimed interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act, as manufacturers of a domestic like product in the United States. On May 1, 2020, Commerce received a complete substantive response from the domestic interested parties within the 30-day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i).3 We received no substantive responses from any respondent interested party, nor was a hearing requested. As a result, pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), Commerce conducted an expedited (120-day) sunset review of the AD order on OCTG from China.

ACCESS is available to registered users at http://access.trade.gov. In addition, a complete version of the Decision Memorandum can be accessed at http:// enforcement.trade.gov/frn/. The signed Issues and Decision Memorandum and the electronic version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Analysis of Comments Received In the Issues and Decision Memorandum, we have addressed all issues that parties raised in this review. The issues include the likelihood of continuation or recurrence of dumping in the event of revocation and the magnitude of the dumping margins likely to prevail if Commerce revoked the AD order. Final Results of Sunset Review Pursuant to sections 751(c)(1) and 752(c)(3) of the Act, we determine that revocation of the AD order on OCTG from China would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping, and that the magnitude of the margins of dumping likely to prevail would be up to 99.14 percent. Notification to Interested Parties This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to an administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305. Timely notification of the return or destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a violation which is subject to sanction. We are issuing and publishing these results and notice in accordance with sections 751(c), 752(c), and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218. 4 See Memorandum, ‘‘Expedited Second Sunset Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Certain Oil Country Tubular Goods from the People’s Republic of China: Issues and Decision Memorandum,’’ dated concurrently with this notice (Issues and Decision Memorandum).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On March 30, 2020, the Department of Commerce (Commerce) initiated 
less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigations of imports of common alloy 
aluminum sheet (aluminum sheet) from Bahrain, Brazil, Croatia, Egypt, 
Germany, Greece, India, Indonesia, Italy, Korea, Oman, Romania, Serbia, 
Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Taiwan, and Turkey.\1\ Currently, the 
preliminary determinations are due no later than August 17, 2020.

Croatia, Egypt, Germany, Greece, India, Indonesia, Italy, Republic 
of Korea, Oman, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain,

Value Investigations, 85 FR 19444 (April 7, 2020).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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. 
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 July 16, 2020, the petitioners \2\ submitted a timely request 
that Commerce postpone the preliminary determinations in these LTFV 
investigations.\3\ The petitioners stated that they request 
postponement so that Commerce may review the petitioners' comments on 
the questionnaire responses, issue supplemental questionnaires, and 
conduct a complete

[[Page 45577]]

and thorough analysis in these investigations.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ The petitioners are the Aluminum Association Common Alloy 
Aluminum Sheet Trade Enforcement Working Group and its individual 
members: Aleris Rolled Products, Inc.; Arconic, Inc.; Constellium 
Rolled Products Ravenswood, LLC; JW Aluminum Company; Novelis 
Corporation; and Texarkana Aluminum, Inc.
    \3\ See Petitioners' Letter, ``Common Alloy Aluminum Sheet from 
Bahrain, Brazil, Croatia, Egypt, Germany, Greece, India, Indonesia, 
Italy, Republic of Korea, Oman, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia, South 
Africa, Spain, Taiwan and the Republic of Turkey,'' dated July 16, 
2020.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For the reasons 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 
determinations by 50 days (i.e., 190 days after the date on which these 
investigations were initiated). As a result, Commerce will issue its 
preliminary determinations no later than October 6, 2020. In accordance 
with section 735(a)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(1), the 
deadline for the final determinations in these investigations will 
continue to be 75 days after the date of the preliminary 
determinations, unless postponed at a later date.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 733(c)(2)
