Statutory Time Limits In antidumping duty adminstrative reviews section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), requires the Department to make a preliminary determination within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested and a final determination within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within these time periods, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the preliminary determination to a maximum of 365 days after the last day of the anniversary month. Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Review We determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of these administrative and new shipper reviews within the original time limit because the Department requires additional time to analyze a large volume of pending U.S. Customs and Border Protection data, analyze questionnaire responses, issue supplemental questionnaires, conduct verification, as well as to evaluate what would be the most appropriate surrogate values to use during the period of review. Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results of these aligned administrative and new shipper reviews by 90 days. The preliminary results will now be due no later than December 3, 2007, which is the first business day after the 90-day extension (the 90th day falls on the weekend). The final results continue to be due 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (``the Department'') is extending 
the time limit for the preliminary results of the administrative and 
new shipper reviews of honey from the People's Republic of China 
(``PRC''). These reviews cover the period December 1, 2005, through

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Catherine Bertrand or Anya Naschak, 
AD/CVD Operations, Office 9, Import Administration, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and 
Constitution Avenue, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20230; telephone: (202) 
482-3207 or (202) 482-6375, respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On December 10, 2001, the Department published in the Federal 
Register an antidumping duty order covering honey from the PRC. See 
Notice of Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value 
and Antidumping Duty Order; Honey from the People's Republic of China, 
66 FR 63670 (December 10, 2001). On February 2, 2007, the Department 
published a notice of initiation of the administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on honey from the PRC. See Initiation of 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request 
for Revocation in Part, 72 FR 5005 (February 2, 2007). On February 5, 
2007, the Department published a notice of initiation of the 
antidumping new shipper review of honey from the PRC. See Honey from 
the People's Republic of China: Initiation of New Shipper Antidumping 
Duty Reviews, 72 FR 5265 (February 5, 2007). On February 23, 2007, the 
Department aligned the new shipper review and the administrative 
review. See Letter from Christopher Riker: Antidumping Duty New Shipper 
Review of Honey from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''): 
Alignment with Administrative Review, dated February 23, 2007.
    The preliminary results of these reviews are currently due no later 
than September 2, 2007.

Statutory Time Limits

    In antidumping duty adminstrative reviews section 751(a)(3)(A) of 
the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''), requires the 
Department to make a preliminary determination within 245 days after 
the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is 
requested and a final determination within 120 days after the date on 
which the preliminary results are published. However, if it is not 
practicable to complete the review within these time periods, section 
751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit 
for the preliminary determination to a maximum of 365 days after the 
last day of the anniversary month.

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Review

    We determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary 
results of these administrative and new shipper reviews within the 
original time limit because the Department requires additional time to 
analyze a large volume of pending U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
data, analyze questionnaire responses, issue supplemental 
questionnaires, conduct verification, as well as to evaluate what would 
be the most appropriate surrogate values to use during the period of 
review.
    Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit for 
completion of the preliminary results of these aligned administrative 
and new shipper reviews by 90 days. The preliminary results will now be 
due no later than December 3, 2007, which is the first business day 
after the 90-day extension (the 90th day falls on the weekend). The 
final results continue to be due 120 days after the publication of the 
preliminary results.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: July 24, 2007.

Deputy Assistant Secretaryfor Import Administration.
