SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On February 19, 1999, the Department published in the Federal Register an amended final determination and antidumping duty order on certain preserved mushrooms from the PRC. See Notice of Amendment of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Preserved Mushrooms from the People’s Republic of China, 64 FR 8308 (February 19, 1999).

On February 28, 2005, the Petitioner requested, in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (‘‘the Act’’) and 19 CFR 351.213(b), an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain preserved mushrooms from the PRC for thirty companies covering the period February 1, 2004, through January 31, 2005. On February 7, 2005, and February 25, 2005, four Chinese companies, Gerber Food (Yunnan) Co., Ltd., Green Fresh Foods (Zhangzhou) Co., Ltd., Primera Harvest (Xiangfan) Co., Ltd., and Raoping Yucun Canned Foods Factory requested an administrative review. The Department notes that these four companies were also included in the Petitioner’s February 28, 2005, request for an administrative review of thirty companies. On March 23, 2005, the Department initiated an administrative review of thirty Chinese companies. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 70 FR 14643 (March 23, 2005). On June 29, 2005, the Petitioner filed a timely letter withdrawing its request for review of twenty–five companies. On July 21, 2005, the Department rescinded the reviews for the twenty–five companies.

Extension of Time Limits 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. The Act further provides, however, that the Department may extend that 245-day period to 365 days if it determines it is not practicable to complete the review within the foregoing time period. The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results within the originally anticipated time limit of October 31, 2005 due to complex respondent specific issues of production processes and sales. The Department has deemed it necessary to provide additional time to conduct a thorough analysis prior to issuing the preliminary results. Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and section 351.213(h)(2) of the Department’s regulations allow the Department to extend the deadline for E:\FR\FM\06OCN1.SGM 06OCN1

Background

    On March 23, 2005, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') 
published in the Federal Register the notice of initiation of the 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on low enriched 
uranium from France, covering the period February 1, 2004, through 
January 31, 2005. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 70 FR 14643 
(March 23, 2005).

Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (``the Act'') 
requires the Department to issue the preliminary results of an 
administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the 
anniversary month of an antidumping duty order for which a review is 
requested and issue the final results within 120 days after the date on 
which the preliminary results are published. However, if the Department 
finds 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.
    Due to the complex nature of the case and the need to issue 
supplemental questionnaires, the Department finds that it is not 
practicable to complete the preliminary results in this administrative 
review of low enriched uranium from France by October 31, 2005. 
Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of 
the preliminary results until no later than February 28, 2006, in 
accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. The deadline for the 
final results of the administrative review continues to be 120 days 
after the publication of the preliminary results.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
