E6–6435 Filed 4–27–06; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 3510–DS–S DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE On July 21, 2005, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published in the Federal Register a notice of the initiation of the antidumping duty administrative review of tapered roller bearings (‘‘TRBs’’) from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) for the period June 1, 2004, through May 31, 2005. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 70 FR 42028 (‘‘Initiation Notice’’). Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), requires the Department to issue preliminary results within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order. 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 period to a maximum of 365 days. On February 28, 2006, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice extending the time limit for the preliminary results of the administrative review from March VerDate Aug<31>2005 2, 2006, to May 1, 2006. See Extension of Time Limit for the Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Tapered Roller Bearings, and Parts Thereof, Finished or Unfinished from the People’s Republic of China 71 FR 10010 (February 28, 2006). The preliminary results of review are currently due no later than May 1, 2006. However, completion of the preliminary results of this review by May 1, 2006, is not practicable because the Department needs additional time to verify the respondent’s constructed export price sales in the United States, and its export price sales and factors of production in the PRC. Because it is not practicable to complete this review within the time specified under the Act, we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of review by an additional 60 days until June 30, 2006, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. The final results continue to be due 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results of review. This notice is published pursuant to sections 751(a) and 777 (i) of the Act. 17:14 Apr 27, 2006 Jkt 208001 National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Proposed Information Collection; Comment Request; NMFS Alaska Region Vessel Monitoring System (VMS) Program National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    Authorized under the Magnuson-Stevens Act, participants are 
required to purchase, install, and operate a National Marine Fisheries 
Service (NMFS)-approved vessel monitoring system (VMS) under certain 
circumstances, to provide more precise location information in the 
Bering Sea, Aleutian Islands, and Gulf of Alaska. This information 
supports enforcement efforts in relation to: (1) A number of fisheries, 
including: Atka mackerel, pollock, Pacific cod, BSAI crab; (2) 
essential fish habitat; and (3) habitat areas of particular concern in 
the Aleutian Islands and Gulf of Alaska. VMS requirements are described 
at 50 CFR part 679.28. The VMS transmitter automatically determines the 
vessels position several times per hour using Global Positioning System 
(GPS) satellite. A communications service provider receives the 
transmission and relays it to NMFS. The VMS transmitters are designed 
to be tamper-resistant and automatic. In most cases, the vessel owner 
is unaware of exactly when the unit is transmitting and is unable to 
alter the signal or the time of transmission.

II. Method of Collection

    VMS check-in, by FAX, is required from participants upon 
installation of a VMS on a vessel. Thereafter, submittal is automatic 
by satellite.

III. Data

    OMB Number: 0648-0445.
    Form Number: None.
    Type of Review: Regular submission.
    Affected Public: Individuals or households; business or other for-
profits organizations.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,854.
    Estimated Time Per Response: 12 minutes for VMS check-in report; 6 
seconds for VMS transmission; 6 hours for VMS installation; 4 hours for 
VMS maintenance.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 23,882.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost to Public: $1,145,000.

IV. Request for Comments
