(‘‘Anhui Native’’) and Qinhuangdao Municipal Dafeng Industrial Co., Ltd. (‘‘QMD’’) as the mandatory respondents for this review. The Department sent its antidumping questionnaire to Anhui Native and QMD on March 9, 2009. The Department was unable to deliver its questionnaire to QMD due to incorrect addresses. See Memorandum to the File from Blaine Wiltse, Case Analyst, RE: Seventh Administrative Review of Honey from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’): Incorrect Addresses for QMD, dated March 27, 2009. On March 30, 2009, Dongtai Peak Honey Industry Co., Ltd. (‘‘Dongtai Peak’’) requested treatment as a voluntary respondent, and submitted its Section A response to the Department. On April 13, 2009, the Department selected Dongtai Peak as a voluntary respondent for this review. On April 14, 2009, Dongtai Peak submitted its Sections C and D response to the Department. On April 15, 2009, Anhui Native withdrew its participation from the current review. On June 8, 2009, and June 16, 2009, the Department sent its Supplemental Sections A, C, and D Questionnaire and its Importer Specific Supplemental Questionnaire to Dongtai Peak. On July 8, 2009, and July 13, 2009, Dongtai Peak submitted its response to the Department’s Importer Specific Supplemental Questionnaire and Supplemental Sections A, C, and D Questionnaire. The preliminary results of this administrative review are currently due on September 2, 2009. jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES 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.

Additionally, the Department intends to provide additional time for interested parties to provide comments on supplemental questionnaires and suggested surrogate values. Lastly, the Department requires additional time to analyze the questionnaire responses and to issue additional supplemental questionnaires, if necessary. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘Act’’), we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of review by 60 days until VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:30 Aug 17, 2009 Jkt 217001 November 2, 2009.1 The final results continue to be due 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results.
