SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On November 1, 2005, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published a notice of opportunity to request administrative review of 
the antidumping duty order on, inter alia, Honey from Argentina. See 
Notice of Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 70 FR 65883 
(November 1, 2005). On December 27, 28, and 30, 2005, the Department 
received timely requests to conduct an administrative review of honey 
from Argentina. On February 1, 2006, the Department published a notice 
of initiation of an antidumping duty review for the December 1, 2004, 
through November 30, 2005 period of review. See Initiation of 
Antidumping Duty Reviews, 71 FR 5241 (February 1, 2006). The 
preliminary results for this administrative review are currently due no 
later than September 5, 2006.

Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Tariff Act), requires the Department to complete the preliminary 
results of an administrative review within 245 days after the last day 
of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested. 
However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within these 
time periods, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act allows the 
Department to extend the time limit for the preliminary results to a 
maximum of 365 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an 
order for which a review is requested.
    The Department has determined it is not practicable to complete 
this review within the statutory time limit because we require 
additional time to conduct a sales-below-cost investigation in this 
administrative review. The time needed to analyze the respondents' cost 
of production data and to develop fully the record in this review makes 
it impracticable to complete the preliminary results of this review 
within the originally anticipated time limit. Accordingly, the 
Department is extending the time limit for completion of the 
preliminary results of this administrative review until no later than 
December 20, 2006, which is 354 days from the last day of the 
anniversary month of the order on honey from Argentina. We intend to 
issue the final results no later than 120 days after publication of the 
preliminary results notice.
    This extension is in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the 
Tariff Act.

    Dated: August 29, 2006.
Stephen Claeys,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
