SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On October 19, 2020, the Department of Commerce (Commerce) 
initiated less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigations of imports of 
certain aluminum foil from Armenia, Brazil, Oman, Russia, and 
Turkey.\1\ Currently, the preliminary determinations are due no later 
than March 8, 2021.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Certain Aluminum Foil from the Republic of Armenia, 
Brazil, the Sultanate of Oman, the Russian Federation, and the 
Republic of Turkey: Initiation of Less-Than-Fair-Value 
Investigations, 85 FR 67711 (October 26, 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 of 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 February 4, 2021, the Aluminum Association Trade Enforcement 
Working Group \2\ (the petitioners) submitted a timely request that 
Commerce postpone the preliminary determinations in these LTFV 
investigations.\3\ The petitioners stated that they request 
postponement due to concerns that Commerce will need more time to issue 
supplemental questionnaires to address deficiencies in the respondents' 
initial questionnaire responses. Under the current timeline, the 
petitioners believe that Commerce will not have complete responses and 
sufficient information to issue these preliminary determinations.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ The individual members of the Aluminum Association Trade 
Enforcement Working Group are: Granges Americas Inc.; JW Aluminum 
Company; and Novelis Corporation.
    \3\ See Petitioners' Letter, ``Certain Aluminum Foil from 
Armenia, Brazil, the Sultanate of Oman, the Russian Federation, and 
the Republic of Turkey: Petitioners' Request for Postponement of 
Preliminary Antidumping Determinations,'' dated February 4, 2021.
    \4\ Id.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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 and 19 CFR 351.205(e), is postponing the 
deadline for these 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 April 27, 2021. 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) 
of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(f)(1).
