Republic of China: Postponement of Preliminary Determination in 
Countervailing Duty Investigation

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

DATES: Effective Date: August 14, 2014.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Emily Halle, AD/CVD Operations, Office

Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-0176.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On July 14, 2014, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
initiated a countervailing duty (CVD) investigation of certain 
passenger vehicle and light truck tires (certain passenger tires) from 
the People's Republic of China (PRC).\1\ Currently, the preliminary 
determination is due no later than September 17, 2014.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Certain Passenger Vehicle and Light Truck Tires from the 
People's Republic of China: Initiation of Countervailing Duty 
Investigation, 79 FR 42285 (July 14, 2014).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Postponement of the Preliminary Determination

    Section 703(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), 
requires the Department to issue the preliminary determination in a CVD 
investigation within 65 days after the date on which the Department 
initiated the investigation. However, if a petitioner makes a timely 
request for an extension in accordance with 19 CFR 351.205(e), section 
703(c)(1)(A) of the Act allows the Department to postpone the 
preliminary determination until no later than 130 days after the date 
on which the Department initiated the investigation. Under 19 CFR 
351.205(e), a 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. The Department will grant the 
request unless it finds compelling reasons to deny the request.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ 19 CFR 351.205(e).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department determines that the record supports postponing the 
preliminary determination in this investigation. On July 25, 2014, 
Petitioner \3\ submitted a timely request pursuant to section 
703(c)(l)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(e) to postpone the 
preliminary determination, stating that the number and nature of the 
subsidy programs under investigation would prevent the Department from 
adequately examining them by the current deadline.\4\ Moreover, the 
record does not present any compelling reasons to deny the request. 
Therefore, in accordance with section 703(c)(l)(A) of the Act, the 
Department is hereby postponing the due date for the preliminary 
determination in this investigation to no later than 130 days after the 
day on which the investigation was initiated. As a result, the deadline 
for completion of the preliminary determination is now November 21, 
2014.
