On May 23, 2018, the Department of Commerce (Commerce) received a timely request for a semiannual new shipper review (NSR) from Jinxiang Infang Fruit & Vegetable Co., Ltd (Infang), in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended. Commerce has determined that the request for a NSR of the antidumping duty order on Fresh Garlic from the People’s Republic of China (China) meets the statutory and regulatory requirements for initiation.
As stated by Infang, the invoice and export date of the shipment was during the six-month POR, but the shipment entered the United States after this period. Based on the information provided by Infang, Commerce finds that extending the POR to capture the entry would not prevent the completion of the review within the time limits set by Commerce's regulations. Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(f)(2)(ii), Commerce is extending the POR by one month. Accordingly, the POR is November 1, 2017, through May 31, 2018.
