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.

Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results

    The Department determines that completion of the preliminary 
results of these reviews within the statutory time period is not 
practicable. 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.
    This notice is published pursuant to sections 751(c)(3)(A) and 
751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.214(h)(i)(1).
