Background

    On June 27, 2006, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') 
issued the preliminary results of this new shipper review. See Certain 
Preserved Mushrooms from the People's Republic of China: Preliminary 
Results of the Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review, 71 FR 38617 (July 
7, 2006) (``Preliminary Results'').

Extension of Time Limits for Final Results

    Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(1) require the Department to issue the 
preliminary results of a new shipper review within 180 days after the 
date on which the new shipper review was initiated and final results of 
a review within 90 days after the date on which the preliminary results 
were issued. The Department may, however, extend the deadline for 
completion of the final results of a new shipper review to 150 days if 
it determines that the case is extraordinarily complicated. See section 
751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2).
    On September 11, 2006, the Department sent questions to the 
respondent in this review, Guangxi Eastwing Trading Co., Ltd. 
(``Eastwing''), regarding surrogate value information Eastwing had 
placed on the record. On the same date, the Department also placed 
surrogate value information on the record of this review and granted 
interested parties an opportunity to comment on the information. As a 
result of the extraordinarily complicated issues raised in this review 
segment, including the additional time needed to evaluate Eastwing's 
response to our questions, as well as any potential comments on the new 
surrogate value information the Department placed on the record, it is 
not practicable to complete this new shipper review within the current 
time limit. Accordingly, the Department is extending the time limit for 
the completion of the final results by 45 days until November 9, 2006, 
in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.214(i)(2).
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
