For a complete description of the scope of these orders, see the Appendix to this notice. Countervailing Duty Orders On March 8, 2022, in accordance with sections 705(b)(1)(A)(i) and 705(d) of the Act, the ITC notified Commerce of its final determinations in these investigations, in which it found that an industry in the United States is materially injured by reason of subsidized imports of granular PTFE resin from India and Russia. Therefore, in accordance with section 705(c)(2) of the Act, Commerce is issuing these countervailing duty orders. Because the ITC determined that imports of granular PTFE resin from India and Russia are materially injuring a U.S. industry, unliquidated entries of such merchandise from India and Russia, entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, are subject to the assessment of countervailing duties. Therefore, in accordance with section 706(a) of the Act, Commerce will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess, upon further instruction by Commerce, countervailing duties on unliquidated entries of granular PTFE resin from India and Russia.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On February 1, 2022, the Department of Commerce (Commerce) 
initiated a countervailing duty (CVD) investigation of imports of 
barium chloride from India.\1\ Currently, the preliminary determination 
is due no later than April 7, 2022.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Barium Chloride from India: Initiation of Countervailing 
Duty Investigation, 87 FR 7094 (February 8, 2022).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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 
countervailing duty 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 \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 petitioner is Chemical Products Corporation.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On March 8, 2022, the petitioner submitted a timely request that 
Commerce postpone the preliminary CVD determination.\3\ The petitioner 
stated that it requests postponement ``. . . so that Petitioner's 
counsel can analyze and comment upon the responses of the respondent 
company and the Government of India to Commerce's Countervailing Duty 
Questionnaire.'' \4\ 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., June 13, 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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See Petitioners' Letter, ``Countervailing Duty Investigation 
of Barium Chloride from India: Petitioner's Request for Extension of 
Time for Preliminary Determination,'' dated March 8, 2022.
    \4\ Id.
    \5\ Postponing the preliminary determination to 130 days after 
initiation would place the deadline on Saturday, June 11, 2022. 
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).
