On June 7, 2006, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published in the Federal Register the preliminary results of these new shipper reviews. Honey from the People's Republic of China: Intent to Rescind and Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Reviews, 71 FR 32923 (June 7, 2006).
Extension of Time Limits for Final Results
Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(1) require the Department to issue the preliminary results of a new shipper review within 180 days after the date on which the new shipper review was initiated and final results of a review within 90 days after the date on which the preliminary results were issued. The Department may, however, extend the deadline for completion of the final results of a new shipper review to 150 days if it determines that the case is Start Printed Page 50886extraordinarily complicated. See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2).
At the request of interested parties, the Department extended the deadline for the submission of surrogate value information and case and rebuttal briefs by three weeks. As a result of the extensions and the extraordinarily complicated issues raised in this review segment, including the honey valuation and bona fides issues, it is not practicable to complete these new shipper reviews within the current time limit. Accordingly, the Department is extending the time limit for the completion of the final results by 30 days until September 27, 2006, in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2).
We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.Start Signature
