Specifically, Calcutta Seafoods Pvt. Ltd./Bay Seafood Pvt. Ltd./Elque & Co. does not have a superseding cash deposit rate; therefore, we will issue revised cash deposits instructions to CBP. In addition, Milsha Agro Exports Pvt. Ltd. has a superseding cash deposit rate; therefore, we will not issue revised cash deposit instructions to CBP. Amended Final Results, we incorrectly stated that Calcutta Seafoods Pvt. Ltd./ Bay Seafood Pvt. Ltd./Elque & Co. had a superseding cash deposit rate; however, no such instructions have been issued. Because no superseding rate is in place, we will issue revised cash deposit instructions to CBP. In addition, in the Amended Final Results, we incorrectly stated that we would issue revised cash deposit instructions to CBP with respect to Milsha Agro Exports Pvt. Ltd. However, this company currently has a superseding rate, and, therefore, no revised cash deposit instructions will be issued. This notice serves to correct these errors. No other changes have been made to the Amended Final Results.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On October 19, 2021, the Department of Commerce (Commerce) 
initiated the countervailing duty (CVD) investigation of imports of 
freight rail coupler systems and certain components thereof (freight 
rail couplers) from the People's Republic of China (China).\1\ 
Currently, the preliminary determination is due no later than December 
23, 2021.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Freight Rail Coupler Systems and Certain Components 
Thereof from the People's Republic of China: Initiation of 
Countervailing Duty Investigation, 86 FR 58878 (October 25, 2021).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Postponement of Preliminary Determination

    Section 703(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), 
requires Commerce to issue the preliminary determination in a CVD 
investigation within 65 days after the date on which Commerce initiated 
the investigation. However, section 703(c)(1) of the Act permits 
Commerce to postpone the preliminary determination until no later than 
130 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 reason for the request.

[[Page 70114]]

Commerce will grant the request unless it finds compelling reasons to 
deny the request.
    On November 29, 2021, the petitioner \2\ in this investigation 
submitted a timely request that Commerce postpone the preliminary CVD 
determination.\3\ The petitioner stated that it is requesting a 
postponement because additional time is needed to collect the necessary 
information for determining the most accurate possible CVD rates.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ The petitioner is the Coalition of Freight Coupler 
Producers.
    \3\ See Petitioner's Letter, ``Freight Rail Car Couplers Systems 
and Certain Components Thereof from the People's Republic of China: 
Request to Postpone Preliminary CVD Determination,'' dated November 
29, 2021.
    \4\ Id. at 2.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.205(e), the petitioner has stated the 
reasons for requesting a postponement of the preliminary determination, 
and Commerce finds no compelling reason to deny the request. Therefore, 
in accordance with section 703(c)(1)(A) of the Act, Commerce is 
postponing the deadline for the preliminary determination to no later 
than 130 days after the date on which this investigation was initiated, 
i.e., February 28, 2022.\5\ Pursuant to section 705(a)(1) of the Act 
and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(1), the deadline for the final determination of 
this investigation will continue to be 75 days after the date of the 
preliminary determination.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ The preliminary determination deadline falls on February 26, 
2022, which is a Saturday. Commerce's practice dictates that where a 
deadline falls on a weekend or federal holiday, the appropriate 
deadline is the next business day. See Notice of Clarification: 
Application of ``Next Business Day'' Rule for Administrative 
Determination Deadlines Pursuant to the Tariff Act of 1930, As 
Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005).
