On April 8, 2008, the Department of Commerce (“the Department”) initiated an antidumping duty investigation on frontseating service valves from the People's Republic of China. See Notice of Initiation of Antidumping Duty Investigation: Frontseating Service Valves from the People's Republic of China, 73 FR 20250 (April 15, 2008).1 The notice of initiation stated that the Department would issue its preliminary determination no later than 140 days after the date of issuance of the initiation, in accordance with section 733(b)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”). The preliminary determination is currently due no later than August 26, 2008.
On July 30, 2008, the petitioner, Parker-Hannifin Corporation, made a timely request, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.205(b)(2) and (e), for a 50-day postponement of the preliminary determination. Because there are no compelling reasons to deny the request, in accordance with section 733(c)(1)(A) of the Act, the Department is postponing the deadline for the preliminary determination under by 50 days to no later than October 15, 2008. The deadline for the final determination will continue to be 75 days after the date of the preliminary determination, unless extended.
