Background

On March 31, 2010, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published in the Federal Register the initiation of two new shipper reviews (NSRs) of the antidumping duty order on certain preserved mushrooms from the People's Republic of China, covering the period of February 1, 2009, to January 31, 2010. See Certain Preserved Mushrooms From the People's Republic of China: Notice of Initiation of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Reviews, 75 FR 16075 (March 31, 2010). The current deadline for the preliminary results of these reviews is September 22, 2010.

Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results of Review

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 complete the preliminary results of a NSR of an antidumping duty order within 180 days after the date on which the review is initiated. However, the Department may extend the deadline for completion of the preliminary results of a NSR to 300 days if it determines the case is extraordinarily complicated. See Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214 (i)(2).

The Department finds that these NSRs are extraordinarily complicated and, therefore, it requires additional time to complete the preliminary results. Specifically, the Department requires additional time to analyze certain discrepancies that exist between the entry documents that Shandong Fengyu Edible Fungus Co., Ltd., submitted to the record and those received from Customs and Border Protection regarding the same sale. With respect to Tongfa, we also require additional time to analyze the record concerning the bona fide nature of its sale because of its price relative to the price of other entries of subject merchandise during the period of review. Accordingly, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results of these NSRs by 30 days (i.e., until October 22, 2010). We intend to issue the final results no later than 90 days after publication of the preliminary results.

This extension is issued and published in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2).
