Background

    On November 9, 2020, the Department of Commerce (Commerce)

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 February 26, 2021, the Wind Tower Trade Coalition (the 
petitioner) submitted a timely request that Commerce postpone the 
preliminary determinations in these LTFV investigations.\2\ The 
petitioner stated that it requested postponement to allow Commerce to 
fully analyze comments recently filed by the petitioner and to continue 
to collect and analyze necessary information so that the preliminary 
determinations will reflect the most accurate results possible.\3\

Preliminary Determination,'' dated February 26, 2021.

    For the reasons stated above and because there are no compelling 
reasons to deny the requests, Commerce, in accordance with section 
733(c)(1)(A) of the Act, is postponing the deadline for the preliminary 
determinations for India and Malaysia 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 May 
18, 2021. In accordance with section 735(a)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.210(b)(1), the deadline for the final determinations of these 
investigations will continue to be 75 days after the date of the 
preliminary determinations, unless postponed at a later date.
    This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 733(c)(2) 
of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(f)(1).
