Background

On April 20, 2010, the Department initiated the countervailing and antidumping duty investigations on aluminum extrusions from the PRC. See Aluminum Extrusions from the People's Republic of China: Initiation of Countervailing Duty Investigation, 75 FR 22114 (April 27, 2010) (Initiation), and accompanying Initiation Checklist [1] and Aluminum Extrusions from the People's Republic of China: Initiation of Antidumping Duty Investigation, 75 FR 22108 (April 27, 2010). The countervailing and antidumping duty investigations have the same scope with regard to the subject merchandise covered. On September 7, 2010, the Department published the preliminary affirmative countervailing duty determination pertaining to aluminum extrusions from the PRC. See Aluminum Extrusions From the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Affirmative Countervailing Duty Determination, 75 FR 54302 (September 7, 2010).

On September 7, 2010, the petitioners [2] submitted a letter, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.210(b)(4)(i), requesting alignment of the final countervailing duty determination with the final determination in the companion antidumping duty investigation of aluminum extrusions from the PRC.

Therefore, in accordance with section 705(a)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(4), we are aligning the final countervailing duty determination on aluminum extrusions from the PRC with the final determination in the companion antidumping duty investigation of aluminum extrusions from the PRC. The final countervailing duty determination will be issued on the same date as the final antidumping duty determination, currently scheduled for January 10, 2011.
