Correction of Federal Register Notice
The Preliminary Determination listed the combination rates for the respondents which were found to be eligible for a separate rate in this investigation. The Department inadvertently failed to list one supplier for Jiaxing Gsun Imp. & Exp. Co., Ltd. which should have received a separate rate.
The combination rate which should have been included in the Preliminary Determination is listed below. This combination is in addition to the rates which were published in the Preliminary Determination and does not replace any previously published combination rates. Additionally, the Department will issue instructions to Customs and Border Protection correcting the suspension of liquidation instructions that were issued pursuant to the publication of the Preliminary Determination to include the below combination rate.
|Jiaxing Gsun Imp. & Exp. Co., Ltd||Linyi Qunxiang Wood Co., Ltd||22.14|
Postponement of the Final Determination
The Preliminary Determination stated that the Department would issue its final determination no later than 75 days after the date of publication of the Preliminary Determination, in accordance with section 773(a)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”). The final determination is currently due no later than July 17, 2013.
On April 3, 2013, Xuzhou Jiangyang Wood Industries Co. Ltd, and Xuzhou Jiangheng Wood Products Co. Ltd, and Linyi San Fortune Wood Co. Ltd (collectively, “Respondents”), requested, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.210(b), a postponement of the final determination and an extension of provisional measures.
In accordance with sections 733(d) and 735 (a)(2)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(2)(ii) and (e), because (1) our preliminary determination is affirmative, (2) the requesting exporters account for a significant proportion of exports of the subject merchandise, and (3) no compelling reasons for denial exist, we are granting the requests and are postponing the final determination until no later than 135 days after the publication of the Preliminary Determination. Suspension of liquidation will be extended accordingly.
An extension of 50 days from the current deadline of July 17, 2013, would result in a new deadline of September 5, 2013.
