    \1\ On January 13, 2011, petitioners withdrew their request for 
an antidumping duty administrative review of honey from Argentina 
for the period of review with respect to Asociacion de Cooperativas 
Argentinas (ACA). Petitioners noted that ACA is no longer subject to 
the antidumping duty order on honey from Argentina.
    \2\ On February 24, 2011, the Department published a subsequent 
initiation notice which included corrections to the Initiation 
Notice with respect to honey from Argentina. See Initiation of 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and 
Request for Revocation in Part, 76 FR 10329 (February 24, 2011) 
(Second Initiation Notice). In the review request for Nexco S.A. 
(Nexco), it also requested revocation from the antidumping duty 
order on honey from Argentina (in part). However, Nexco's request 
for revocation in part from the order was inadvertently omitted from 
the Initiation Notice. Furthermore, certain company names were 
misspelled in the same Initiation Notice. All errors were corrected 
in the Second Initiation Notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On September 7, 2011, the Department extended the time limit for 
the preliminary results until December 1, 2011, and rescinded the 
administrative review with respect to ten companies: (1) Alimentos 
Naturales-Natural Foods Lavalle, (2) Alma Pura, (3) Apidouro Comercial

S.A., and (10) Seabird Argentina S.A. See Notice of Extension of Time 
Limit for Preliminary Results and Partial Rescission of Antidumping 
Duty Administrative Review, 76 FR 55349 (September 7, 2011). On 
December 7, 2011, the Department extended the time limit for the 
preliminary results until December 15, 2011. See Honey From Argentina:

(December 7, 2011). This review covers the following companies:

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
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 Act allows the Department to extend 
the time limit for the preliminary results to a maximum of 365 days 
after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a 
review is requested.
    The Department has determined it is not practicable to complete 
this review within the statutory time limit due to the selection of two 
new mandatory respondents for this review after the requests for review 
for the original respondents were withdrawn. The Department requires 
additional time to analyze sufficiently information submitted by the 
current respondents in this administrative review. Accordingly, the 
Department is further extending the time limit for completion of the 
preliminary results of this administrative review by 16 days (i.e., to 
December 31, 2011).\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ Because December 31, 2011, falls on a Saturday, the 
Department will toll the date of the preliminary results to the 
first business day after December 31, 2011. Therefore, the deadline 
for the preliminary results will be the following business day, 
Tuesday, January 3, 2012. See Notice of Clarification: Application 
of ``Next Business Day'' Rule for Administrative Determination 
Deadlines Pursuant to the Tariff Act of 1930, as Amended, 70 FR 
24533 (May 10, 2005).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This notice is issued and published in accordance with section 
351.213(d)(4) of the Department's regulations and sections 751(a)(3)(A) 
and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

Operations.
