Time Limit for the Preliminary Results of the New Shipper Reviews



AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 

Department of Commerce.



DATES: Effective Date: June 8, 2010.



FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Scott Lindsay, AD/CVD Operations, 

Office 6, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 

U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., 

Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-0780.



Background



    On December 29, 2009, the Department of Commerce (Department) 

initiated new shipper reviews of fresh garlic from the People's 

Republic of China (PRC) for Jinxiang Chengda Imp & Exp Co., Ltd. 

(Chengda), Jinxiang Yuanxin Imp & Exp Co., Ltd. (Yuanxin), and 

Zhengzhou Huachao Industrial Co., Ltd. (Huachao) covering the period 

November 1, 2008 through October 31, 2009. See Fresh Garlic from the 

People's Republic of China: Initiation of New Shipper Reviews, 75 FR 

343 (January 5, 2010). On February 12, 2010, the Department issued a 

memorandum that tolled the deadlines for all Import Administration 

cases by seven calendar days due to the Federal Government closure. See 

Memorandum for the Record from Ronald Lorentzen, DAS for Import 

Administration, Tolling of Administrative Deadlines as a Result of the 

Government Closure During the Recent Snowstorm, dated February 12, 

2010. As a result, the preliminary results of these new shipper reviews 

are currently due no later than July 6, 2010.



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 days 

after the day on which the review was initiated. See also 19 CFR 

351.214(i)(1). The Act further provides that the Department may 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 for Preliminary Results



    The Department determines that these new shipper reviews involve 

extraordinarily complicated methodological issues, including the 

examination of importer information. Additional time is also required 

to ensure that the Department has adequate time to include Chengda, 

Yuanxin, and Huachao's supplemental questionnaire responses in its 

examination of the bona fides of the companies' sales. Therefore, 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 to 300 days, until no later than November 1, 2010.

    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 

sections 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) and 777(i) of the Act.



     Dated: June 1, 2010.

John M. Andersen,

Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing 

Duty Operations.
