SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On May 13, 2014, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
initiated a countervailing duty investigation on 53-foot domestic dry 
containers from the People's Republic of China (PRC).\1\ Currently, the 
preliminary determination is due no later than July 17, 2014.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See 53-Foot Domestic Dry Containers From the People's 
Republic of China: Initiation of Countervailing Duty Investigation, 
79 FR 28679 (May 19, 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 
countervailing duty investigation within 65 days after the date on 
which the Department initiated the investigation. However, if the 
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.
    On June 18, 2014, the petitioner \2\ submitted a timely request 
pursuant to section 703(c)(1)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(e) to 
postpone the preliminary determination.\3\ Therefore, in accordance 
with section 703(c)(1)(A) of the Act, we are fully extending the due 
date for the preliminary determination to not 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 
September 22, 2014.\4\

    \2\ Stoughton Trailers, LLC (the petitioner).
    \3\ See Letter from the petitioner, entitled ``53-Foot Domestic 
Dry Containers from the People 's Republic of China,'' dated June 
18, 2014.
    \4\ The actual deadline based on a 65-day extension is September 
20, 2014, which is a Saturday. Department 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).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 703(c)(2) 
of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(f)(1).

    Dated: June 19, 2014.

Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
