The preliminary determination is currently due no later than March 30, 2011.
On March 3, 2011, the Coalition for American Hardwood Parity (“Petitioners”), made a timely request, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.205(b)(2) and (e), for a postponement of the Start Printed Page 13358preliminary determination, in order to allow additional time for the review of questionnaire responses.
