Postponement of Preliminary Determination

    On May 3, 2016, Titan Tire Corporation and the United Steel, Paper 
and Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industrial and 
Service Workers International Union, AFL-CIO, CLC (USW) (collectively, 
Petitioners) made a timely request, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.205(e), for 
postponement of the preliminary determination, in order to provide the 
Department with sufficient time to develop the record in this 
proceeding through additional questionnaires, which Petitioners will in 
turn need to analyze and possibly comment on. Because there are no 
compelling reasons to deny Petitioners' request, in accordance with 
section 773(c)(1)(A) of the Act, the Department is postponing the 
deadline for the preliminary determination by 50 days.
    For the reasons stated above, the Department, in accordance with 
section 733(c)(1)(A) of the Act, is postponing the deadline for the 
preliminary determination to no later than 190 days after the date on 
which the Department initiated this investigation. Therefore, the new 
deadline for the preliminary determination is August 11, 2016. In 
accordance with section 735(a)(1) of the Act, the deadline for the 
final determination of this investigation will continue to be 75 days 
after the date of the preliminary determination, unless postponed at a 
later date.
    This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 733(c)(2) 
of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(f)(1).

    Dated: May 31, 2016.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
