EFFECTIVE DATE: September 27, 2007. SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) has received a request from Dujiangyan Xingda Foodstuff Co., Ltd. (‘‘Xingda’’), a producer and exporter of preserved mushrooms, to conduct a new shipper review (‘‘NSR’’) of the antidumping duty order on certain preserved mushrooms from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’). Since this request meets the statutory and regulatory requirements for initiation, the Department is initiating a NSR of Xingda, in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), and 19 CFR 351.214(d).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On February 19, 1999, the Department published the antidumping duty order on certain preserved mushrooms from the PRC. See Notice of Amendment of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Preserved Mushrooms From the People’s Republic of China, 64 FR 8308 (February 19, 1999). Thus, the antidumping duty order on certain preserved mushrooms from the PRC has a February anniversary month. The Department received a request for a NSR from Xingda on August 30, 2007, which is during the semiannual anniversary month. See 19 CFR 351.214(d)(2). Xingda identified itself as a producer and exporter of preserved mushrooms. Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(I) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(i), Xingda certified that it did not export preserved mushrooms to the United States during the period of investigation (‘‘POI’’). Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(II) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(A), Xingda also certified that it has never been affiliated with any exporter or producer that exported preserved mushrooms to the United States during the POI. Furthermore, the company also certified that its export activities are not controlled by the government of the PRC, satisfying the requirement of 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(B). Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iv), Xingda submitted documentation establishing the date on which the subject merchandise was first entered for consumption in the United States, the volume of that first shipment and any subsequent shipments, and the date of the first sale to an unaffiliated customer in the United States. The Department queried the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) entry database, which confirmed that Xingda had officially entered subject merchandise into the United States via assignment of an entry date in the Customs database by CBP. Initiation of Review Based on the information on the record, and in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(d)(1), we have determined that E:\FR\FM\27SEN1.SGM 27SEN1

Certain Preserved Mushrooms From the People's Republic of China: 
Extension of Time Limit for Final Results of the Tenth Antidumping Duty 
New Shipper Review

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

DATES: Effective Date: September 27, 2007.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Julia Hancock, AD/CVD Operations, 
Office 9, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., 
Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-1394.

Background

    On July 19, 2007, 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, 72 FR 45734 (August 
15, 2007) (``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 August 30, 2007, the Department sent a supplemental 
questionnaire to the respondent in this review, Guangxi Jisheng Foods, 
Inc. (``Jisheng''), regarding information Jisheng and its importer had 
placed on the record about their respective legal structure. 
Additionally, as stated in the Preliminary Results, the Department 
intends to verify, as provided in section 782(i)(3) of the Act, sales 
and cost information submitted by the respondent, Jisheng. See 
Preliminary Results, 72 FR at 45735. As a result of the extraordinarily 
complicated issues raised in this review segment, including Jisheng's 
and its importer's legal structure, and the additional time needed to 
evaluate Jisheng's response to our questions, and analyze the 
information that will be gathered at Jisheng's sales and cost 
verification, 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 60 days until 
December 16, 2007, in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the 
Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2). However, because December 16, 2007, falls 
on a Sunday, the final results will be due on December 17, 2007, the 
next business day.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(2)(B) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: September 17, 2007.
Stephen J. Claeys,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
