SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On May 11, 2021, the Department of Commerce (Commerce) initiated 
the less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigations of raw honey from 
Argentina, Brazil, India, Ukraine, and Vietnam.\1\ Currently, the 
preliminary determinations are due no later than September 28, 2021.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Raw Honey from Argentina, Brazil, India, Ukraine, and 
the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Initiation of Less-Than-Fair-
Value Investigations, 86 FR 26897 (May 18, 2021).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Postponement of Preliminary Determination

    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 August 17, 2021, the American Honey Producers Association and 
the Sioux Honey Association (collectively, the petitioners) submitted a 
timely request that Commerce postpone the preliminary determinations in 
the LTFV investigations for Argentina, Brazil, India, Ukraine, and 
Vietnam.\2\ 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. Further, the petitioners noted that Commerce 
has not yet determined the cost of production methodology that it will 
rely on for many of these investigations.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See Petitioners' Letter, ``Raw Honey from Argentina, Brazil, 
India, Ukraine, and Vietnam--Petitioners' Request for Postponement 
of Preliminary Antidumping Determinations,'' dated August 17, 2021.
    \3\ 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 the

[[Page 47625]]

preliminary determinations for Argentina, Brazil, India, Ukraine, and 
Vietnam 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 November 17, 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).
