Honey from the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review
The Department of Commerce (``the Department'') is currently conducting the semi-annual 2005-2006 new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on honey from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''). We preliminarily determine to apply adverse facts available (``AFA'') with respect to Shanghai Bloom International Trading Co., Ltd. (``Shanghai Bloom''), which failed to cooperate to the best of its ability, provided unverifiable information, and impeded the proceeding. If these preliminary results are adopted in our final results of this review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') to assess antidumping duties on entries of subject merchandise during the period of review (``POR'') for which the importer-specific assessment rates are above de minimis. Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results. We will issue the final results no later than 120 days from the date of publication of this notice.
