However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within this time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the final results to a maximum of 180 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. The Department has determined that completion of the final results of this review within the original time period is not practicable because the Department requires additional time to complete analysis of several complex issues, including certain cost issues for one respondent and a revocation request for another respondent. Therefore, the Department is fully extending the time limit for completion of the final results of the administrative review. The final results are now due no later than November 3, 2008, the next business day after 180 days from publication of the preliminary results. This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: June 17, 2008. Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretaryfor Import Administration.

Completion of the final results of these reviews within the 120–day period is not practicable because the Department conducted verification in the administrative review after publication of the preliminary results, and, therefore, needs additional time to complete verification reports, provide an opportunity for, and analyze, comments by interested parties on the preliminary results and verification reports, and analyze information gathered at verification.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On January 2, 2008, the Department published a notice of initiation 
of new shipper reviews of fresh garlic from the PRC covering Anqiu 
Haoshun Trade Co., Ltd., Ningjin Ruifeng Foodstuff Co., Ltd., and 
Zhengzhou Yuanli Trading Co., Ltd. for the period November 1, 2006,

2008). The preliminary results of these new shipper reviews are 
currently due no later than June 18, 2008.

Statutory Time Limits

    Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
``Act''), provides that the Department will issue the preliminary 
results of a new shipper review of an antidumping duty order within 180

extend that 180-day period to 300 days if it determines that the case 
is extraordinarily complicated. See 19 CFR 351.214 (i)(2).

Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results

    The Department determines that these new shipper reviews involve 
extraordinarily complicated methodological issues such as potential 
affiliation issues, the examination of importer information, and the

in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.214(i)(2), the Department is extending the time limit for these 
preliminary results by 120 days, until no later than October 16, 2008.
