FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Background On August 31, 2006, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) issued the preliminary results of this administrative review. See Certain Frozen Fish Fillets from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Preliminary Results of the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 71 FR 53387 (September 11, 2006) (‘‘Preliminary Results’’). The final results are currently due on January 9, 2007. Extension of Time Limits for Final Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), and 19 CFR 351.211(b)(5) require the Department to issue the final results in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. The Department may, however, extend the deadline for completion of the final results of an administrative review to 180 days if it determines it is not practicable to complete the review within the foregoing time period. See section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2). The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the final results in the administrative review of certain frozen fish fillets from Vietnam within this time limit. Specifically, the Department needs additional time to consider the verification results of QVD Food Co., Ltd. (‘‘QVD’’). Additionally, the Department is extending the deadline for the final results to accommodate parties’ public hearing request so parties may address all issues. Accordingly, the Department finds that additional time is required to complete these final results. Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and section 351.213(h)(2) of the Department’s regulations allow the Department to extend the deadline for the final results to a maximum of 180 days from the publication date of the preliminary results. For the reasons noted above, we are extending the time for the completion of the final results of this review by 60 days to March 10, 2007. However, March 10, 2007, falls on a Saturday, and it is the Department’s long-standing practice to issue a determination the next business day when the statutory deadline falls on a weekend, federal holiday, or any other E:\FR\FM\24NON1.SGM 24NON1 67850 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 226 / Friday, November 24, 2006 / Notices day when the Department is closed.

SUMMARY: In response to a request by the respondent Patagonik S.A. (Patagonik), the Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting a new shipper review of the antidumping order of honey from Argentina. The period of review (POR) is December 1, 2004, through December 31, 2005. We preliminarily determine a zero margin in the case of sales of honey from Argentina from Patagonik. If these preliminary results are adopted in our final results of this new shipper review, we will instruct Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties based on the difference between the export price (EP) or constructed export price (CEP) and normal value (NV). Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results. EFFECTIVE DATE: November 24, 2006.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: cprice-sewell on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES AGENCY: Background The Department published an antidumping duty order on honey from Argentina on December 10, 2001. See VerDate Aug<31>2005 13:24 Nov 22, 2006 Jkt 211001 Notice of Antidumping Duty Order; Honey From Argentina, 66 FR 63672. On January 3, 2006, Patagonik, an Argentine exporter of subject merchandise, requested that the Department conduct a new shipper review. On January 20, 2006, the Department initiated this new shipper review. See Honey from Argentina: Initiation of New Shipper Antidumping Duty Review, 71 FR 4349 (January 26, 2006). On January 30, 2006, the Department issued sections A, B, and C of the antidumping questionnaire to Patagonik, as well as a supplemental questionnaire to its unaffiliated customer in the United States. We received responses on February 16, 2006, March 2, 2006, and March 20, 2006. The Department issued additional supplemental questionnaires on April 13, May 22, and July 31, 2006. We received responses to these additional supplemental questionnaires on May 8, June 9, and August 28, 2006. The American Honey Producers Association and the Sioux Honey Association (petitioners) submitted comments on respondent’s submissions on May 3, May 26, and July 14, 2006. On May 5, 2006, petitioners made a sales below cost allegation in this segment of the proceeding. Respondent and petitioners submitted comments on the allegation on May 16, and May 26, 2006, respectively. On June 27, 2006, the Department initiated a sales below cost investigation based upon petitioner’s allegation and on July 18, 2006, the Department issued its section D questionnaire to the selected beekeepers and middleman, Colmenares Santa Rosa. On August 15, 2006, the beekeepers and the middleman submitted their response to the cost questionnaire. On September 7, 2006, the Department issued a supplemental cost questionnaire to which Patagonik’s beekeepers and middleman replied on October 6, 2006. On June 30, 2006, the Department extended the time limit for issuance of the preliminary results of the new shipper review to November 16, 2006. See Notice of Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Antidumping New Shipper Review: Honey from Argentina, 71 FR 39304 (July 12, 2006). Scope of the Review The merchandise covered by this order is honey from Argentina. The products covered are natural honey, artificial honey containing more than 50 percent natural honey by weight, preparations of natural honey containing more than 50 percent natural PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 honey by weight, and flavored honey. The subject merchandise includes all grades and colors of honey whether in liquid, creamed, comb, cut comb, or chunk form, and whether packaged for retail or in bulk form. The merchandise covered by this order is currently classifiable under subheadings 0409.00.00, 1702.90.90, and 2106.90.99 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the Department’s written description of the merchandise under this order is dispositive. Bona Fide Sale Analysis For the reasons stated below, we preliminarily find that Patagonik’s reported U.S. sales during the POR appear to be bona fide based on the totality of the facts on the record. Specifically, we find that: (1) The price of Patagonik’s sale was within the range of the prices of other entries of subject merchandise from Argentina into the United States during the POR; (2) Patagonik’s sale was made between Patagonik and unaffiliated parties at arm’s length; and (3) there is no record evidence that indicates that Patagonik’s sale was not made based on commercial principles. See the accompanying memo from David Cordell through Robert James, Program Manager, to Richard Weible, Office Director, entitled Bona Fide Nature of the Sale in the New Shipper Review of Patagonik S.A.: Honey from Argentina, dated November 16, 2006. Verification As provided in section 782(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), we verified sales and cost information provided by Patagonik, selected beekeepers, and the middleman/ collector, using standard verification procedures such as the examination of relevant sales and financial records. The sales verification took place between September 11, 2006, and September 14, 2006. Sales verification results are outlined in the public and proprietary versions of our verification reports, which are on file in the Central Records Unit (CRU) in room B–099 of the main Department building. See Memoranda to the File from David Cordell, Deborah Scott and Maryanne Burke through Richard Weible Office Director, entitled ‘‘Verification of the Sales Response of Patagonik S.A.’’, dated October 30, 2006. We conducted a cost verification with respect to the collector and two selected beekeeper cost respondents from October 23, 2006, to October 27, E:\FR\FM\24NON1.SGM 24NON1

final results in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order

period. See section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2). 
The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the final 
results in the administrative review of certain frozen fish fillets 
from Vietnam within this time limit. Specifically, the Department needs
