SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:.

Background

    On April 16, 2018, the Department of Commerce (Commerce) initiated

(steel wheels) from the People's Republic of China (China).\1\ 
Currently, the preliminary determination is due no later than June 20,

    \1\ See Certain Steel Wheels from the People's Republic {of 
China{time} : Initiation of Countervailing Duty Investigation, 83 FR 
17794 (April 24, 2018).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Postponement of the Preliminary Determination

    Section 703(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), 
requires Commerce to issue the preliminary determination in a CVD 
investigation within 65 days after the date on which Commerce initiated 
the investigation. However, section 703(c)(1)(A) of the Act permits 
Commerce to postpone the preliminary determination until no later than 
130 days after the date on which Commerce initiated the investigation 
if a petitioner makes a timely request for a postponement. Under 19 CFR 
351.205(e), a petitioner must submit a request for postponement 25 days 
or more before the scheduled date of the preliminary determination and 
must state the reason for the request. Commerce will grant the request 
unless it finds compelling reasons to deny the request.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See 19 CFR 351.205(e).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On May 15, 2018, Accuride Corporation and Maxion Wheels Akron LLC 
(collectively, the petitioners) submitted a timely request pursuant to 
section 703(c)(1)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(b)(2) and (e) to 
postpone the preliminary determination. The petitioners stated that due 
to the number and nature of subsidy programs under investigation, the 
purpose of its request was to provide Commerce with adequate time to 
examine the amount of subsidies received by producers and exporters of 
subject merchandise in China.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See Letter from the petitioner to Commerce, ``Certain Steel 
Wheels from China (C-570-083)--Petitioners' Request to Extend the 
Deadline for the Preliminary Determination,'' dated May 15, 2018.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.205(e), the petitioners have stated 
the reasons for postponement of the preliminary determination, and the 
record does not present any compelling reasons to deny the request. 
Therefore, in accordance with section 703(c)(1)(A) of the Act, Commerce 
is postponing the deadline for the preliminary determination to August 
24, 2018. Pursuant to section 705(a)(l) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.210(b)(1), the deadline for the final determination will continue 
to be 75 days after the date of the preliminary determination, unless 
postponed at a later date.
    This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 703(c)(2) 
of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(f)(l).

    Dated: May 31, 2018.
Gary Taverman,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing 
Operations, performing the non-exclusive functions and duties of the 
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
