Postponement of Preliminary Determination
On March 27, 2012, the Department of Commerce (“the Department”) initiated an antidumping duty investigation on drawn stainless steel sinks from the People's Republic of China.
The notice of initiation stated that, unless postponed, 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 8, 2012.
On June 29, 2012, Petitioner, Elkay Manufacturing Company, made a timely request, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.205(b)(2) and (e), for a 50-day postponement of the preliminary determination, in order to allow additional time for the Department to review respondents' sections C and D questionnaire submissions.
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 by 50 days.
An extension of 50 days from the current deadline of August 8, 2012, would result in a new deadline of September 27, 2012. The deadline for the final determination will continue to be 75 days after the date of the preliminary determination, unless extended.
This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 733(c)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(f)(1).
Dated: July 10, 2012.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
