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 August 2, 2022, Aslanbas Civi Tel Ve Celik Hasir San. A.S.

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 
the exporters and producers who account 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 
December 19, 2022.\4\

holiday, the appropriate deadline is the next business day. See
