Accordingly, we will issue questionnaires to Altin, Peak Honey, QMD, and Eulia, including a separate rates section. The review will proceed if the responses provide sufficient indication that Altin, Peak Honey, QMD, and Eulia are not subject to either de jure or de facto government control with respect to their exports of honey. However, if any company does not demonstrate its eligibility for a separate rate, then that company will be deemed not separate from other companies that exported during the POI and the new shipper review will be rescinded for that company. In accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(e), we will instruct CBP to allow, at the option of the importers, the posting, until the completion of the review, of a single entry bond or security in lieu of a cash deposit for certain entries of the merchandise exported by Altin, Peak Honey, QMD, and Eulia. Specifically, since Altin, Peak Honey, QMD, and Eulia have stated that they are both the producers and exporters of the subject merchandise for the sales under review, we will instruct CBP to limit the bonding option only to entries of merchandise that were both exported and produced by Altin, Peak Honey, QMD, and Eulia, respectively. Interested parties that need access to proprietary information in these new shipper reviews should submit applications for disclosure under administrative protective orders in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305 and 351.306. This initiation and notice are in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act, 19 CFR 351.214(d), and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i). Dated: January 25, 2006. Stephen J.
