See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation: Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 69 FR 69889 (December 1, 2003). The petitioners requested that the Department conduct an administrative review of entries of subject merchandise made by twenty–four Argentine producers/exporters. In addition, the Department received requests for reviews from three of the Argentine exporters included in the petitioners’ request, plus a request for review by one additional exporter, El Mana S.A. (El PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Mana). The Department initiated a review on the above twenty–five companies on January 31, 2005. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 70 FR 4818 (January 31, 2005). Subsequent to the Department’s initiation of review, on February 22, 2005, the petitioners filed a withdrawal of request for review for fifteen of the companies. See letter from petitioners to the Department, Honey From Argentina, (February 22, 2005), on file in the Central Records Unit (CRU), room B– 099 of the main Department building. On February 24, 2005, both petitioners and Nexco S.A. (Nexco) (an exporter) submitted letters withdrawing their individual requests for review of Nexco.

On March 31, 2005, petitioners submitted a withdrawal of request for review of two additional companies: Compania Apicola Argentina (CAA), Mielar, and TransHoney S.A. (TransHoney). See Letter from petitioners to the Department, Honey From Argentina, (March 31, 2005), on file in the CRU. On April 15, 2005, the Department rescinded its review for the companies named in petitioners’ and respondents’ withdrawals of request for review. See Honey from Argentina: Notice of Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 70 FR 19927 (April 15, 2005).

Filing Information

    As a courtesy, we are making information related to sunset 
proceedings, including copies of the Department's regulations regarding 
sunset reviews (19 CFR 351.218) and Sunset Policy Bulletin, the 
Department's schedule of sunset reviews, case history information 
(i.e., previous margins, duty absorption determinations, scope 
language, import volumes), and service lists available to the public on 
the Department's sunset Internet website at the following address: 
``http://ia.ita.doc.gov/sunset/.'' All submissions in these sunset 
reviews must be filed in accordance with the Department's

[[Page 38102]]

regulations regarding format, translation, service, and certification 
of documents. These rules can be found at 19 CFR 351.303.
    Because deadlines in a sunset review can be very short, we urge 
interested parties to apply for access to proprietary information under 
administrative protective order (``APO'') immediately following 
publication in the Federal Register of the notice of initiation of the 
sunset review. The Department's regulations on submission of 
proprietary information and eligibility to receive access to business 
proprietary information under APO can be found at 19 CFR 351.304-306.

Information Required from Interested Parties

    Domestic interested parties (defined in section 771(9)(C), (D), 
(E), (F), and (G) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.102(b)) wishing to 
participate in these sunset reviews must respond not later than 15 days 
after the date of publication in the Federal Register of the notice of 
initiation by filing a notice of intent to participate. The required 
contents of the notice of intent to participate are set forth at 19 CFR 
351.218(d)(1)(ii). In accordance with the Department's regulations, if 
we do not receive a notice of intent to participate from at least one 
domestic interested party by the 15-day deadline, the Department will 
automatically revoke the orders without further review. See 19 CFR 
351.218(d)(1)(iii).
    If we receive an order-specific notice of intent to participate 
from a domestic interested party, the Department's regulations provide 
that all parties wishing to participate in the sunset review must file 
complete substantive responses not later than 30 days after the date of 
publication in the Federal Register of the notice of initiation. The 
required contents of a substantive response, on an order-specific 
basis, are set forth at 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3). Note that certain 
information requirements differ for respondent and domestic parties. 
Also, note that the Department's information requirements are distinct 
from the Commission's information requirements. Please consult the 
Department's regulations for information regarding the Department's 
conduct of sunset reviews.\1\ Please consult the Department's 
regulations at 19 CFR Part 351 for definitions of terms and for other 
general information concerning antidumping and countervailing duty 
proceedings at the Department.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ In comments made on the interim final sunset regulations, a 
number of parties stated that the proposed five-day period for 
rebuttals to substantive responses to a notice of initiation was 
insufficient. This requirement was retained in the final sunset 
regulations at 19 CFR 351.218(d)(4). As provided in 19 CFR 
351.302(b), however, the Department will consider individual 
requests for extension of that five-day deadline based upon a 
showing of good cause.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This notice of initiation is being published in accordance with 
section 751(c) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(c).
