Correction of Postponement of Final Determination

On June 3, 2013, the Department of Commerce (“Department”) published the postponement of the final determination of the antidumping duty investigation of hardwood and decorative plywood from the People's Republic of China (“PRC”).[1] In that notice, the Department inadvertently extended the final determination by only 50 days, whereas Department had intended to fully postpone the final by 60 days. Therefore, the Department is now correcting that notice and fully extending the final determination in accordance with sections 733(d) and 735(a)(2)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”) and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(2)(ii) and (e). Accordingly, we are postponing the final determination by 60 days. We are also extending the application of the provisional measures prescribed under section 733(d) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(e)(2) from a four month period to a six month period. In addition, because the countervailing duty investigation of hardwood and decorative plywood from the PRC has been aligned with the concurrent antidumping duty investigation under section 705(a)(1) of the Act, the time limit for completion of the final determination in the countervailing duty investigation will be the same date.[2] The final determination for both investigations therefore is September 16, 2013.[3]
