This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

Postponement of Preliminary Determinations
Pursuant to section 733(b)(1)(A) of the Act, the Department shall make a preliminary determination in an antidumping duty investigation within 140 days after the date on which the Department initiates the investigation. Section 733 (c)(1)(A) of the Act further provides, however, that the Department may extend the 140-day period to 190 days if the petitioner makes a timely request for an extension. On November 14, 2003 and November 26, 2003, Kerr-McGee Chemical, LLC (“petitioner”) made timely requests pursuant to 19 CFR 351.205(e) for 30-day and 20-day postponements, respectively, for a total of 50 days, pursuant to section 733(c)(1)(A) of the Act. Therefore, in accordance with petitioner's requests for postponements, the Department is postponing the preliminary determinations in these investigations for 50 days. These preliminary determinations will now be due no later than February 26, 2004. Unless extended, the deadline for the final determinations will continue to be 75 days after the date of the preliminary determinations.
This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 733(c)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(f).Start Signature
