SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On March 11, 1986, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published in the Federal Register the countervailing duty order on 
certain in-shell pistachios from Iran. See Final Affirmative 
Countervailing Duty Determination and Countervailing Duty Order: In-

Pistachios). On March 1, 2005, the Department published in the Federal 
Register a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of 
the countervailing duty order on in-shell pistachios from Iran (70 FR 
9918). As a result of requests properly filed by the California 
Pistachio Commission (CPC) and Cal Pure Pistachios, Inc. (Cal Pure) on 
March 31, 2005, we are conducting an administrative review of the 
countervailing duty order on in-shell pistachios from Iran with respect 
to Tehran Negah Nima Trading Company, Inc. (Nima). On April 22, 2005, 
we published in the Federal Register the initiation of this 
countervailing duty administrative review (70 FR 20862). The 
preliminary results are currently due no later than December 1, 2005.

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Review

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the

including new subsidy programs, to be considered and analyzed by the 
Department by that deadline. As a result, the Department is extending 
the time limits for completion of the preliminary results until no 
later than February 14, 2006, which is 320 days from the last day of 
the anniversary month of the date of publication of the order. The
