On April 28, 2006, the Department aligned the statutory time lines of the 11th administrative review and all but one of the new shipper reviews.1 Qingdao Xintianfeng Foods Company Ltd.

The 11th administrative review covers nine companies, and to conduct the sales and factor analyses for each requires the Department to gather and analyze a significant amount of information pertaining to each company’s sales practices and manufacturing methods. The five new shipper reviews, including that of QXF, involve extraordinarily complicated methodological issues such as the use of intermediate input methodology, potential affiliation issues and the examination of importer information. The Department requires additional time to analyze these issues. Therefore, given the number and complexity of issues in this case, and in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of review by 61 days until October 2, 2006. The final results continue to be due 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results. Regarding QXF, in accordance with section 351.214(h)(i)(1) of the Department’s regulations and section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act, we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of review by 106 days until October 2, 2006. The final results continue to be due 90 days after the publication of the preliminary results.
