SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On December 17, 2020, Commerce published the Preliminary Results.1 Although we invited parties to comment on the preliminary results of the review,2 no interested party submitted comments.

All pipe meeting the physical description set forth above, including multiple-stenciled pipe with an API or comparable foreign specification line pipe stencil is covered by the scope of this order. The welded line pipe that is subject to the order is currently classifiable in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) under subheadings 7305.11.1030, 7305.11.5000, 7305.12.1030, 7305.12.5000, 7305.19.1030, 7305.19.5000, 7306.19.1010, 7306.19.1050, 7306.19.5110, and 7306.19.5150.

Polyester Textured Yarn From Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and 
the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Postponement of Preliminary 
Determinations in the Less-Than-Fair-Value Investigations

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration,

DATES: Applicable April 2, 2021.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On November 17, 2020, the Department of Commerce (Commerce) 
initiated less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigations of imports of 
polyester textured yarn from Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and 
Vietnam.\1\ Currently, the preliminary determinations are due no later 
than April 6, 2021.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Polyester Textured Yarn from Indonesia, Malaysia, 
Thailand, and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Initiation of Less-
Than-Fair-Value Investigations, 85 FR 74680 (November 23, 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)(A) 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 \2\ 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\ The petitioners are Unifi Manufacturing, Inc. and Nan Ya 
Plastics Corporation, America.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On March 9, 2021, the petitioners submitted a timely request that 
Commerce postpone the preliminary determinations in these LTFV 
investigations.\3\ The petitioners stated that it requests postponement 
due to the lack of time to collect, analyze, and follow up on 
questionnaire responses from the mandatory respondents in each 
investigation. The petitioners believe that additional time will allow 
Commerce to consider the issues raised in each case, review initial and 
supplemental data submitted by the respondents, and request additional 
information if necessary.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See Petitioners' Letter, ``Polyester Textured Yarn from 
Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and the Socialist Republic of 
Vietnam--Petitioners' Request to Postpone the Preliminary 
Determinations,'' dated March 9, 2021.
    \4\ Id.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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 
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 May 26, 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.

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).
