SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce is extending the time limit for the preliminary results of new shipper reviews of the antidumping duty order on fresh garlic from the People’s Republic of China until October 25, 2005, pursuant to Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). This extension applies to the new shipper reviews of Shanghai LJ International Trading Co., Ltd. and Zhangqiu Qingyuan Vegetable Co., Ltd., covering the period of November 1, 2003, through October 31, 2004. EFFECTIVE DATE: July 5, 2005. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Coleen Schoch or Brian Ledgerwood, AD/CVD Operations, Office 8, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–45541 and (202) 482–3836, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On January 5, 2005, the Department of Commerce (the Department) announced the initiation of the new shipper reviews of Shanghai LJ International Trading Co., Ltd. (Shanghai LJ), Zhangqiu Qingyuan Vegetable Co., Ltd. (Qingyuan) and Huaiyang Huamei Foodstuff Co., Ltd. (Huamei). See Notice of Initiation of New Shipper Antidumping Duty Reviews: Fresh Garlic from the People’s Republic of China, 70 FR 779. The new shipper review of Huamei was rescinded by the Department on May 25, 2005. See VerDate jul<14>2003 18:41 Jul 01, 2005 Jkt 205001 Notice of Initiation of New Shipper Antidumping Duty Reviews: Fresh Garlic from the People’s Republic of China, 70 FR 30081. Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act provides that the Department will issue the preliminary results of a new shipper review of an antidumping duty order within 180 days after the date on which the new shipper review was initiated. The Act also provides that the Department may extend that 180-day period to 300 days if it concludes that the new shipper review is extraordinarily complicated. See also 19 CFR 351.214(i). The Department has determined that these reviews are extraordinarily complicated and it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results by the current deadline of June 27, 2005. There are a number of complex factual, methodological, and legal issues related to the calculation of the antidumping margins for these new shipper reviews that are currently before the Department. Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2), the Department is extending the time limit for the preliminary results until no later than October 25, 2005. We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(2)(B) and 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(I). Dated: June 27, 2005. Barbara E.

These actions were taken in accordance with Department of Commerce regulations (15 CFR 335) (70 FR 25774). The increases in the 2005 TRQs are: 1 million square meters for Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) 9902.51.11 to an annual total level of 5.5 million square meters (worsted wool fabrics with VerDate jul<14>2003 18:41 Jul 01, 2005 Jkt 205001 PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 million square meters (worsted wool fabrics with average fiber diameters of 18.5 microns or less). The Act requires the President to ensure that such fabrics are fairly allocated to persons (including firms, corporations, or other legal entities) who cut and sew men’s and boys’ worsted wool suits and suit-like jackets and trousers in the United States and who apply for an allocation based on the amount of such suits cut and sewn during the prior calendar year. Presidential Proclamation 7383, of December 1, 2000, authorized the Secretary of Commerce to allocate the quantity of worsted wool fabric imports under the TRQs. On December 14, 2004, the Department published a notice of the initial allocation for Calendar Year 2005 of TRQs based on applications received for HTS 9902.51.11 TRQ from 11 firms, and for HTS 9902.51.15 TRQ from 14 firms (69 FR 74500). All applicants were determined eligible for an allocation. Most applicants submitted data on a business confidential basis. On June 8, 2005, the Department allocated the increases for the 2005 worsted wool fabric TRQ mandated by the ‘‘Wool Suit and Textile Trade Extension Act of 2004’’ based on the same data received on the applications for the initial allocation 2005 TRQs.
