SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On March 11, 2014, the Department of Commerce (“the Department”) published its preliminary determination in the antidumping duty investigation on ferrosilicon from the Russian Federation.[1] The Preliminary Determination stated that the Department would issue its final determination not later than 75 days after the date of publication of the Preliminary Determination in the Federal Register, in accordance with section 735(a)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”). The final determination is currently due not later than May 25, 2014.[2]

On March 7, 2014, CC Metals and Alloys, LLC and Globe Specialty Metals, Inc. (together, “Petitioners”), requested postponement of the final determination pursuant to section 735(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(2)(i).[3] Because the Department's preliminary determination in this investigation was negative and no compelling reason exists to deny the request, in accordance with section 735(a)(2)(B) of the Act, 19 CFR 351.210(b)(2)(i), and 19 CFR 351.210(e), the Department is granting the request and postponing the final determination until not later than 135 days after the publication of the Preliminary Determination in the Federal Register. The 60 day extension from the current deadline of May 25, 2014, results in a new deadline of July 24, 2014, for the final determination in this investigation.

This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 735(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(g).
