See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 76 FR 53404 (August 26, 2011). The preliminary results of review are currently due April 1, 2012. Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires that the Department make a preliminary determination within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested. Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act further states that, if it is not practicable to complete the review within the time period specified, the administering authority may extend the 245-day period to issue its preliminary results to up to 365 days. We determine that completion of the preliminary results of this review within the 245-day period is not practicable as the Department needs additional time to analyze complex issues regarding affiliation and knowledge of U.S. destination. Given the complexity of these issues, and in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of this review by E:\FR\FM\27FEN1.SGM 27FEN1 11486 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 38 / Monday, February 27, 2012 / Notices 120 days.

SUMMARY: On October 20, 2011, the Department of Commerce (Department) published the partial preliminary results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on fresh garlic from the People’s Republic of China (PRC) covering the period of review (POR) of November 1, 2009, through October 31, 2010. The Department is issuing these partial final results for the PRC-wide entity only. Based on the analysis of the record and the comments received, the Department finds that seven companies subject to this review, including mandatory respondents, Shandong Longtai Fruits and Vegetables Co., Ltd. (Longtai) and Weifang Hongqiao International Logistic Co., Ltd. (Hongqiao), did not demonstrate their eligibility for separate rate status and, thus, will be considered part of the PRCwide entity for purposes of these final results. These companies are listed in Appendix I. The Department is also rescinding the review with respect to 14 exporters who had ‘‘no shipments’’ during the POR. A list of these companies is found in Appendix II. DATES: Effective Date: February 27, 2012.

Background

    On August 26, 2011, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
published a notice of initiation of the administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on certain pasta from Turkey, covering the 
period July 1, 2010, through June 30, 2011. See Initiation of 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests 
for Revocation in Part, 76 FR 53404 (August 26, 2011). The preliminary 
results of review are currently due April 1, 2012.

Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), requires that the Department make a preliminary determination 
within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order 
for which a review is requested. Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act 
further states that, if it is not practicable to complete the review 
within the time period specified, the administering authority may 
extend the 245-day period to issue its preliminary results to up to 365 
days.
    We determine that completion of the preliminary results of this 
review within the 245-day period is not practicable as the Department 
needs additional time to analyze complex issues regarding affiliation 
and knowledge of U.S. destination. Given the complexity of these 
issues, and in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, we are 
extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of this 
review by

July 30, 2012. The final results continue to be due 120 days after 
publication of the preliminary results.
    This notice is published pursuant to sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 
777(i)(1) of the Act.
