SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On November 9, 2020, Commerce initiated an LTFV investigation of

Spain: Initiation of Less-Than-Fair-Value Investigations, 85 FR 
73023 (November 16, 2020).

Affirmative Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 86 FR

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

Postponement of Final Determination

    Section 735(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), 
and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(2) provide that a final determination may be 
postponed until not later than 135 days after the date of the 
publication of the preliminary determination if, in the event of an 
affirmative preliminary determination, a request for such postponement 
is made by the exporters or producers who account for a significant 
proportion of exports of the subject merchandise, or in the event of a 
negative preliminary determination, a request for such postponement is 
made by the petitioners. Further, 19 CFR 351.210(e)(2) requires that 
such postponement requests by exporters be accompanied by a request for 
extension of provisional measures from a four-month period to a period 
of not more than six months, in accordance with section 733(d) of the 
Act.
    On July 7, 2021, Vestas Wind Technology India Private Limited 
(Vestas India), the mandatory respondent in this investigation, 
requested that Commerce postpone the deadline for the final 
determination until no later than 135 days from the publication of the 
Preliminary Determination, and extend the application of the 
provisional measures from a four-month period to a period of not more 
than six months.\3\ In accordance with section 735(a)(2)(A) of the Act 
and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(2)(ii), because: (1) The Preliminary 
Determination was affirmative; (2) the request was made by an exporter/
producer who accounts for a significant proportion of exports of the 
subject merchandise; and (3) no compelling reasons for denial exist, 
Commerce is postponing the final determination until no later than 135 
days after the date of the publication of the Preliminary 
Determination, and extending the provisional measures from a four-month 
period to a period of not more than six months. Accordingly, Commerce 
will issue its final determination no later than October 6, 2021.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See Vestas India's Letter, ``Request to Extend the Deadline 
for the Final Determination,'' dated July 7, 2021.
    \4\ Because Commerce previously aligned the deadline for the 
final determination of the companion countervailing duty (CVD) 
investigation of wind towers from India with this deadline for this 
investigation, the deadline for issuing the final determination in 
the CVD investigation is also October 6, 2021. See Utility Scale 
Wind Towers from India: Preliminary Affirmative Countervailing Duty 
Determination, and Alignment of Final Determination With Final 
Antidumping Duty Determination, 86 FR 15897 (March 25, 2021).
