On February 8, 2005, the Department issued a questionnaire to the importer of record for the U.S. sale at issue. The importer responded on March 21, 2005. On April 26, 2005, the Department issued its first supplemental questionnaire to El Mana. El Mana responded on May 19, 2005. The Department issued a second supplemental questionnaire to El Mana on May 24, 2005, to which El Mana responded on May 31, 2005. The Department then requested additional information on June 20, 2005, to which El Mana filed its response on July 5, 2005. Petitioners submitted comments to the supplemental questionnaire responses (SQR) on July 8, 2005. On July 25, 2005, the Department issued a final supplemental questionnaire, to which El Mana responded on August 12, 2005. On June 23, 2005, the Department published a notice of extension of the time limit for the completion of the preliminary results until November 28, 2005. See 70 FR 36374. On September 26, the Department issued a memorandum ‘‘New Shipper Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Honey from Argentina: Intent to Rescind the Review with Respect to El Mana. ‘‘ On October 6, 2005, both petitioners (the American Honey Producers Association and the Sioux Honey Association) and the respondent El Mana provided comments to our stated intent to rescind. On October 11, 2005, both petitioners and respondent issued rebuttal comments. On October 14, 2005, petitioners provided additional comments concerning new information in respondent’s rebuttal comments. On November 10, 2005, the Department rejected El Mana’s rebuttal comments dated October 11, 2005, and asked El Mana to resubmit the rebuttal comments without reference to the new information included in the October 11, 2005, submission. At the same time, the Department rejected petitioners additional comments, dated October 14, 2005, as they included references to the new information referenced by El Mana in its October 11, 2005, submission. El Mana refiled its rebuttal comments on November 15, 2005, and these were also rejected for the same reasons. Subsequently, El Mana refiled the comments on November 16, 2005. Analysis of New Shipper Review On September 26, 2005, the Department issued a memorandum detailing our intent to rescind this VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:11 Dec 01, 2005 Jkt 205001 review because we preliminarily determined the cooperative that supplied El Mana with the subject merchandise knew, or should have known, that the final destination of the subject merchandise was the United States. See Memorandum to Barbara E. Tillman, entitled ‘‘New Shipper Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Honey from Argentina: Intent to Rescind the Review with Respect to El Mana,’’ dated August September 26, 2005 (Intent to Rescind Memorandum). The Department preliminarily determined the cooperative had in its possession at the time of sale of the subject merchandise to El Mana, labels indicating the final destination of the subject merchandise as the United States. The totality of the facts on the record led the Department to conclude that the cooperative had or should have had knowledge that the merchandise was destined for the United States. The Department stated that because there was no request for a review of the cooperative’s sale to El Mana and because El Mana made no other sales during the POR, the Department intended to rescind the current new shipper review of El Mana. Rescission of New Shipper Review For the reasons stated in the accompanying Rescission Memorandum and as outlined above, and pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) and 19 CFR 351.214(f), we are rescinding this new shipper review. Parties can find a complete discussion of the issues raised in this new shipper review and the corresponding recommendations in this memorandum, which is on file in the Central Records Unit, room B–099 of the main Commerce Building. Since the Department is rescinding the new shipper review, we are not calculating a company–specific rate for El Mana. Notification The Department will notify U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) that bonding is no longer permitted to fulfill security requirements for shipments of Argentine honey by El Mana entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption in the United States on or after the publication of this rescission notice in the Federal Register, and that a cash deposit of 30.24 percent ad valorem should be collected for any entries exported by El Mana. We are issuing and publishing this determination and notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(2)(B) and 777(i) of the Act. PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 72295 Dated: November 28, 2005.

See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 70 FR 16799 (April 1, 2005). As a result of a request for a review filed by Myland Industrial Co., Ltd. and Buxin Myland (Foundry) Ltd. (collectively ‘‘Myland’’) on April 25, 2005, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of the initiation of the antidumping duty administrative review of non–malleable cast iron pipe fittings from the PRC for the period April 1, 2004, through March 31, 2005.

The preliminary results of review are currently due no later than December 31, 2005. Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), requires the Department to issue preliminary results within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within this time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time period to a maximum of 365 days. Completion of the preliminary results of this review within the 245-day period is not practicable because the Department needs additional time to analyze information pertaining to the respondent’s sales practices, factors of production, and corporate relationships, to evaluate certain issues raised by the petitioners, and to issue and review responses to supplemental questionnaires. Because it is not practicable to complete this review within the time specified under the Act, we are fully extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of review by 120 days until April 30, 2006, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. Further, because April 30, 2006, falls on a Sunday, the preliminary results will be due on May 1, 2006, the next business day. The final results continue to be due 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results. This notice is published pursuant to sections 751(a) and 777(i) of the Act. Dated: November 28, 2005.

Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Non-Malleable Cast Iron Pipe 
Fittings from the People's Republic of China

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

EFFECTIVE DATE: December 2, 2005.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Michael Holton or Will Dickerson, 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-
1324, or 482-1778, respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On April 1, 2005, the Department published in the Federal Register 
a notice for an opportunity to request an administrative review of non-
malleable cast iron pipe fittings from the People's Republic of China 
(``PRC''). See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or 
Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 
70 FR 16799 (April 1, 2005). As a result of a request for a review 
filed by Myland Industrial Co., Ltd. and Buxin Myland (Foundry) Ltd. 
(collectively ``Myland'') on April 25, 2005, the Department published 
in the Federal Register a notice of the initiation of the antidumping 
duty administrative review of non-malleable cast iron pipe fittings 
from the PRC for the period April 1, 2004, through March 31, 2005. See 
Initiation of Antidumping

[[Page 72296]]

and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for 
Revocation in Part, 70 FR 30694 (May 27, 2005). The preliminary results 
of review are currently due no later than December 31, 2005.

Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires the Department to issue preliminary results within 245 
days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order. However, 
if it is not practicable to complete the review within this time 
period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend 
the time period to a maximum of 365 days. Completion of the preliminary 
results of this review within the 245-day period is not practicable 
because the Department needs additional time to analyze information 
pertaining to the respondent's sales practices, factors of production, 
and corporate relationships, to evaluate certain issues raised by the 
petitioners, and to issue and review responses to supplemental 
questionnaires.
    Because it is not practicable to complete this review within the 
time specified under the Act, we are fully extending the time period 
for issuing the preliminary results of review by 120 days until April 
30, 2006, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. Further, 
because April 30, 2006, falls on a Sunday, the preliminary results will 
be due on May 1, 2006, the next business day. The final results 
continue to be due 120 days after the publication of the preliminary 
results. This notice is published pursuant to sections 751(a) and 
777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: November 28, 2005.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
