Background On February 4, 2010, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) initiated this new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on honey from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’), covering the period December 1, 2008, through November 30, 2009. See Honey from the People’s Republic of China: Initiation of New Shipper Antidumping Duty Reviews, 75 FR 5764 (February 4, 2010) (‘‘Initiation’’). The preliminary results of this new shipper review were due no later than July 28, 2010. On February 12, 2010, the Department exercised its discretion to toll the deadlines for all Import Administration cases by seven calendar days due to the February 5, through February 12, 2010, Federal Government closure. See ‘‘Memorandum to the Record from Ronald Lorentzen, DAS for Import Administration, regarding ‘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 this new shipper review are currently due on August 4, 2010. Extension of Time Limit for the Preliminary Results Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), and VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:28 Jul 06, 2010 Jkt 220001 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 time period for completion of the preliminary results of a new shipper review to 300 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). The Department has determined that the review is extraordinarily complicated as the Department must gather additional publicly available information, issue additional supplemental questionnaires, and allow time for parties to comment on those responses. Based on the timing of the case and the additional information that must be gathered, the preliminary results of this new shipper review cannot be completed within the 180 day time limit. Accordingly, the Department is extending the time limit for the completion of the preliminary results of this new shipper review by 90 days. The preliminary results will now be due no later than November 2, 2010 in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2). The final results will, in turn, be due 90 days after the date of issuance of the preliminary results, unless extended. This notice is published pursuant to sections 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: June 30, 2010. John M.

See Certain Cased Pencils From the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 74 FR 68047 (December 22, 2009) (‘‘Preliminary Results’’). We gave the interested parties an opportunity to comment on the Preliminary Results. After reviewing the interested parties’ comments, we made changes to our calculations for the final results of the review. The final dumping margin for this review is listed in the ‘‘Final Results of the Review’’ section below. DATES: Effective Date: July 7, 2010. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Alexander Montoro or Joseph Shuler, AD/CVD Operations, Office 1, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone (202) 482–0238 or (202) 482– 1293, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Following the Preliminary Results, the Department issued additional supplemental questionnaires to mandatory respondent China First Pencil Co., Ltd. (‘‘China First’’) on December 28, 2009 and January 19, 2010. China First responded on January 11, 2010, and January 20, 2010, respectively. The Department also issued an additional supplemental questionnaire to Shanghai Three Star Stationery Industry Co., Ltd. (‘‘Three Star’’), the other mandatory respondent, on December 22, 2009 and received a response on December 29, 2009. China First and Three Star submitted post-preliminary surrogate value comments on January 12, 2010. On February 11, 2010, Beijing Dixon Stationery Company Ltd. (‘‘Dixon’’) submitted a case brief and, on February 19, 2010, China First, Three Star, and Orient International Holding Shanghai Foreign Trade Co., Ltd. (‘‘SFTC’’) submitted a joint case brief. None of the parties requested a hearing. As explained in the memorandum from the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, the Department exercised its discretion to toll deadlines for the duration of the closure of the Federal Government from February 5, through February 12, 2010. Thus, all deadlines in this segment of the proceeding were extended by seven days. The revised deadline for the final results of this administrative review was thus extended to April 28, 2010.

Background

    On February 4, 2010, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
initiated this new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on 
honey from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''), covering the 
period December 1, 2008, through November 30, 2009. See Honey from the 
People's Republic of China: Initiation of New Shipper Antidumping Duty 
Reviews, 75 FR 5764 (February 4, 2010) (``Initiation''). The 
preliminary results of this new shipper review were due no later than 
July 28, 2010.
    On February 12, 2010, the Department exercised its discretion to 
toll the deadlines for all Import Administration cases by seven 
calendar days due to the February 5, through February 12, 2010, Federal 
Government closure. See ``Memorandum to the Record from Ronald 
Lorentzen, DAS for Import Administration, regarding `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 this new shipper review are currently due on 
August 4, 2010.

Extension of Time Limit for the Preliminary 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 time period for completion of the preliminary results of a new 
shipper review to 300 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).
    The Department has determined that the review is extraordinarily 
complicated as the Department must gather additional publicly available 
information, issue additional supplemental questionnaires, and allow 
time for parties to comment on those responses. Based on the timing of 
the case and the additional information that must be gathered, the 
preliminary results of this new shipper review cannot be completed 
within the 180 day time limit. Accordingly, the Department is extending 
the time limit for the completion of the preliminary results of this 
new shipper review by 90 days. The preliminary results will now be due 
no later than November 2, 2010 in accordance with section 
751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2). The final results 
will, in turn, be due 90 days after the date of issuance of the 
preliminary results, unless extended.
    This notice is published pursuant to sections 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) and 
777(i)(1) of the Act.
