Background

On March 31, 2011, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published in the Federal Register the initiation of administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain preserved mushrooms from the People's Republic of China, covering the period of February 1, 2010, through January 31, 2011. See Initiation of Antidumping Administrative Reviews, Request for Revocation in Part, and Deferral of Administrative Review, 76 FR 17825 (March 31, 2011). The current deadline for the preliminary results of this review is October 31, 2011.

Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results of Review

Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires that the Department complete the preliminary results of an administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within this time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the preliminary results to a maximum of 365 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested.

The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of this review within the original time frame because comments from interested parties have necessitated the solicitation and subsequent analysis of additional information from both respondents: Blue Field (Sichuan) Food Industrial Co., Ltd and Dujiangyan Xingda Foodstuff Co., Ltd. This additional information covers a wide range of issues including the proper method for valuing numerous production inputs. The Department requires additional time to gather and analyze the additional information necessary to complete this review. Thus, the Department finds it is not practicable to complete this review within the original time limit (i.e., by October 31, 2011).

Accordingly, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results of this administrative review by 120 days (i.e., until February 28, 2012), in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. We intend to issue the final results no later than 120 days after publication of the preliminary results notice.

This extension is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.
