Honey from the People's Republic of China: Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of 2003/2004 New Shipper Review, 43122 [05-14729]

Download as PDF 43122 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 142 / Tuesday, July 26, 2005 / Notices Extension of Preliminary and Final Results On April 1, 2005, the Department initiated a sunset review of the suspended antidumping duty investigation on ammonium nitrate from Russia pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’). See Notice of Initiation of Fiveyear (‘‘Sunset’’) Reviews, 70 FR 16800, (April 1, 2005). On the basis of notices of intent to participate filed on behalf of domestic interested parties and adequate substantive comments filed on behalf of domestic and respondent interested parties, the Department is conducting a full (240-day) review to determine whether termination of the suspension agreement on ammonium nitrate would lead to the continuation or recurrence of dumping. The Department’s preliminary results of this review were scheduled for July 20, 2005 and its final results of this review were scheduled for November 29, 2005; however, the Department needs additional time for its analysis. In accordance with section 751(c)(5)(B) of the Act, the Department may extend the period of time for making its preliminary determination in a sunset review by not more than 90 days, if it determines that the review is extraordinarily complicated. As set forth in section 751(c)(5)(C), the Department may, among other reasons, treat a sunset review as extraordinarily complicated if: (i) there are a large number of issues, (ii) the issues to be considered are complex or (iii) there are a large number of firms involved. In this proceeding, the Department has to consider complex issues related to the likelihood of continuation or recurrence of dumping, the appropriate margins likely to prevail if the suspension agreement is terminated, and developments during the administration of the suspension agreement. Therefore, the Department has determined, pursuant to section 751(c)(5)(C) of the Act, that the sunset review of the suspension agreement on ammonium nitrate from Russia is extraordinarily complicated and requires additional time for the Department to complete its analysis. Accordingly, the Department is extending the deadline in this proceeding, and, as a result, intends to issue the preliminary results of the sunset review of the suspension agreement on ammonium nitrate from Russia on or about October 18, 2005 and the final results of the sunset review by February 27, 2006. This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(c)(5)(B) and (C) of the Act. VerDate jul<14>2003 23:45 Jul 25, 2005 Jkt 205001 Dated: July 19, 2005. Joseph A.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On December 10, 2001, the Department published in the Federal 
Register an antidumping duty order covering honey from the PRC. See 
Notice of Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value 
and Antidumping Duty Order; Honey from the People's Republic of China, 
66 FR 63670 (December 10, 2001). On December 22, 2004, the Department 
received a timely request from Kunshan Xin'an Trade Co., Ltd. 
(``Xinan'') in accordance with 19 CFR 351.214 (c), for a new shipper 
review of the antidumping duty order on honey from the PRC, which has a 
December annual anniversary month. On January 31, 2005, the Department 
initiated a review for Xinan. See Honey from the People's Republic of 
China: Initiation of New Shipper Antidumping Duty Review, 70 FR 6412 
(February 7, 2005) (``NSR Xinan Initiation'')
    The Department has issued its antidumping duty questionnaire, and 
two supplementals to Xinan. The deadline for completion of the 
preliminary results is currently August 1, 2005.

Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results

    Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(1) require the Department to issue the 
preliminary results of a new shipper review within 180 days after the 
date on which the new shipper review was initiated and final results of 
a review within 90 days after the date on which the preliminary results 
were issued. The Department may, however, extend the deadline for 
completion of the preliminary results of a new shipper review to 300 
days if it determines that the case is extraordinarily complicated (19 
CFR 351.214 (i)(2)).
    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214 
(i)(2), we determine that this review is extraordinarily complicated 
and that it is not practicable to complete this new shipper review 
within the current time limit. Specifically, the Department requires 
additional time to analyze all questionnaire responses and issues of 
affiliation, and to conduct verification of the responses submitted to 
date. Accordingly, the Department is extending the time limit for the 
completion of the preliminary results by 45 days, to September 16, 
2005, in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.214(i)(2). The final results will, in turn, be due 90 days after 
the date of issuance of the preliminary results, unless extended.

    Dated: July 18, 2005.
