Postponement of Preliminary Determination:
On June 28, 2001, the Department initiated the countervailing duty investigation of individually quick frozen red raspberries from Chile. See Notice of Initiation of Countervailing Duty Investigation: Individually Quick Frozen Red Raspberries From Chile, 66 FR 34423 (June 28, 2001). The preliminary determination currently must be issued by August 24, 2001.
On August 3, 2001, the petitioners submitted a written request pursuant to 19 CFR 351.205(e) for a postponement of the preliminary determination in accordance with section 703(c)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”). The petitioners requested a 45 day postponement (i.e., until October 8, 2001) in order to allow time for the petitioners to submit comments on the respondents' questionnaire response and to allow time for the Department to issue supplemental questionnaires.
The Department finds no compelling reason to deny the request. Therefore, we are postponing the preliminary determination until no later than October 8, 2001.
This notice of postponement is published pursuant to section 703(c)(2) of the Act.Start Signature
Dated: August 9, 2001.
