FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Julia Hancock or Matthew Renkey, AD/

Background

    On December 27, 2006, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
published a notice of initiation of an administrative review of fresh 
garlic from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''), covering the 
period November 1, 2005, through October 31, 2006. See Notice of 
Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative 
Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 71 FR 77720 (December 27, 
2006). On April 11, 2007, after receiving quantity and value and 
separate rate responses, the Department selected the mandatory 
respondents for this review. Between May 14, 2007, and June 11, 2007, 
the Department received the initial section A, C and D questionnaire 
responses from the mandatory respondents. The preliminary results of 
this administrative review are currently due on August 2, 2007.

Extension of Time Limit for the Preliminary Results

    The Department determines that completion of the preliminary 
results of this review within the statutory time period is not 
practicable, given the extraordinarily complicated nature of the 
proceeding. The 12th administrative review covers 19 companies (three 
mandatory respondents and 16 separate rate respondents), requiring the 
Department to gather and analyze a significant amount of information 
pertaining to each company's corporate structure and ownership, sales 
practices, and manufacturing methods. The Department requires more time 
within which to complete its analysis. Furthermore, this review 
involves the extraordinarily complicated intermediate input methodology 
issue. Lastly, the Department requires additional time to analyze the 
questionnaire responses and to issue supplemental questionnaires.
    Therefore, given the number and complexity of issues in this case, 
and in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, 
as amended (``the Act''), we are extending the time period for issuing 
the preliminary results of review by 120 days until November 30, 2007. 
The final results continue to be due 120 days after the publication of 
the preliminary results.
    This notice is published pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the 
Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2).

    Dated: July 23, 2007.
