The review was initiated for 13 individually named firms, and the period of review (POR) is September 1, 2004, through August 31, 2005.1 Of the 13 named firms for which the Department initiated an administrative review, the reviews of 7 of these firms were rescinded on February 15, 2006. See Notice of Partial Rescission of Antidumping Administrative Review, 71 FR 7915 (February 15, 2006).2 The preliminary results of this administrative review for the remaining respondents (Jiangsu JOM, Shangai Sunbeauty, Qingdao JYX, Qingdao Wentai, Xuzhou Jinjiang, and Yancheng Hi–King) are currently due by June 2, 2006. wwhite on PROD1PC61 with NOTICES Extension of Time Limit 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 for which a review is requested and the final results within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary 1 These firms are China Kingdom Import & Export Co., Ltd.

However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within the specified time periods, 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. The Department has determined that completion of the preliminary results within the originally anticipated time limit, i.e., by June 2, 2006, is impracticable. The Department requires additional time to analyze the parties’ responses to the Department’s questionnaires, as well as to issue any necessary supplemental questionnaires and to conduct verifications. Consequently, it is not practicable to complete the review within the time specified under the Act. Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of these preliminary results by 120 days to September 30, 2006, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. Additionally, on February 16, 2006, and February 21, 2006, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(j)(3), Xuzhou Jinjiang and Xiping Opeck Food Co. Ltd., respectively, agreed to waive the time limits of their new shipper reviews, and agreed to have their reviews conducted concurrently with the administrative review of this order for the same POR. See Notice of Postponement of Time Limits for New Shipper Antidumping Duty Reviews in Conjunction With Administrative Review, 71 FR 13963 (March 20, 2006). Therefore, the preliminary results of these new shipper reviews will also be extended by 120 days to September 30, 2006. The deadline for the final results of these reviews 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)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: May 15, 2006. Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretaryfor Import Administration.
