However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within the time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend these deadlines to a maximum of 365 days and 180 days, respectively. The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results in the administrative review of petroleum wax candles from the PRC within the originally anticipated time limit (i.e., by May 3, 2005), because we are currently analyzing factors of production information that has required numerous supplemental questionnaires. Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results no later than August 11, 2005, in accordance with Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. The deadline for the final results of this administrative review continues to be 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On September 22, 2004, the Department published its notice of 
initiation of an antidumping administrative review on petroleum wax 
candles from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''). See Initiation 
of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and 
Request for Revocation in Part, 69 FR 56745 (September 22, 2004). The 
Department subsequently received a timely withdrawal request from one 
of the exporters that requested a review: Shangyu City Garden Candle 
Factory (``Garden Candle''). On March 30, 2005, the Department 
published a notice of rescission, in part, of antidumping duty 
administrative review for Garden Candle. See Petroleum Wax Candles from 
the PRC: Rescission, in Part, of Antidumping Duty Administrative 
Review, 70 FR 16217 (March 30, 2005). The Department is not rescinding 
its review of Shanghai R&R Import/Export Co., Ltd. (``Shanghai R&R''), 
another exporter that requested review. The preliminary results of this 
administrative review are currently due no later than May 3, 2005.

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (``the Act''), the Department shall issue preliminary results 
in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order within 245 
days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date of 
publication of the order for which a review is requested and the final 
results within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results 
are published. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review 
within the time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the 
Department to extend these deadlines to a maximum of 365 days and 180 
days, respectively.
    The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the 
preliminary results in the administrative review of petroleum wax 
candles from the PRC within the originally anticipated time limit 
(i.e., by May 3, 2005), because we are currently analyzing factors of 
production information that has required numerous supplemental 
questionnaires. Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit 
for completion of the preliminary results no later than August 11, 
2005, in accordance with Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. The deadline 
for the final results of this administrative review continues to be 120 
days after the publication of the preliminary results. We are issuing 
and publishing this notice in accordance with Section 751(a)(1) and 
777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: April 29, 2005.
