SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On December 3, 2007, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published in the Federal Register its notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on honey from Argentina. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 72 FR 67889 (December 3, 2007). In response, on December 31, 2007, the American Honey Producers Association and the Sioux Honey Association (collectively, petitioners) requested an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on honey from Argentina for the period December 1, 2006 through November 30, 2007. On January 28, 2008, the Department published a notice of initiation of this administrative review. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 73 FR 4829 (January 28, 2008). The current deadline for the preliminary results of this review is September 2, 2008. Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Tariff Act), requires the Department to complete the preliminary results of an administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within this time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act allows the Department to extend the 245-day time PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 limit for the preliminary results to a maximum of 365 days. The Department has determined it is not practicable to complete this review within the statutory time limit because we require additional time to conduct sales below–cost investigations of three respondents. We also require additional time to fully develop the record and analyze information related to the request for partial revocation of the order with respect to Seylinco, S.A. For these reasons, it is impracticable to complete the preliminary results of this administrative review within the originally–specified time limit. Accordingly, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results of this administrative review until no later than December 19, 2008, which is 354 days from the last day of the anniversary month. We intend to issue the final results no later than 120 days after publication of the preliminary results notice. This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act. Dated: June 30, 2008. Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration. [FR Doc.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On May 1, 2008, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') 
published the preliminary results of these new shipper reviews, 
covering the period November 1, 2006, through April

[[Page 38397]]

30, 2007. See Fresh Garlic from the People's Republic of China: 
Preliminary Results of the 12th New Shipper Reviews, 73 FR 24042 (May 
1, 2008) (``Preliminary Results''). The final results for these new 
shipper reviews are currently due no later than July 21, 2008, the next 
business day after 90 days from the date of issuance of the preliminary 
results of review.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ In the Preliminary Results we inadvertently stated that the 
issuance of the final results would be 90 days from the publication 
of the preliminary results of review. However, in accordance with 
Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(``the Act''), and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(1), the date of issuance of the 
final results will be based the date of issuance of the Preliminary 
Results.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Extension of Time Limit for the 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 to issue 
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).
    In order to allow parties additional time to submit comments 
regarding the Department's Preliminary Results, and the verifications 
associated with these new shipper reviews, the Department extended the 
deadline for the submission of case and rebuttal briefs. See Letter to 
All Interested Parties, ``New Shipper Review of Fresh Garlic from the 
People's Republic of China: Briefing Schedule Extension,'' from 
Catherine Bertrand, Program Manager, Office 9, dated June 19, 2008. As 
a result of this extension, and the extraordinarily complicated issues 
raised in these new shipper reviews, including surrogate valuation, 
intermediate input methodology and an analysis of the bona fide nature 
of the sales under review, it is not practicable to complete these new 
shipper reviews within the current time limit. Accordingly, the 
Department is extending the time limit for completion of the final 
results of these reviews by 60 days (for a total of 150 days after the 
issuance of the preliminary results) to September 19, 2008, in 
accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.214(i)(2).
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: June 30, 2008.
