SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On February 3, 2006, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the antidumping order on stainless steel bar from Germany for the period March 1, 2004, through February 28, 2005 (See Stainless Steel Bar from Germany: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Administrative Review, 71 FR 5811 (February 3, 2006) (‘‘Preliminary Results’’)). The current deadline for the final results of this review is June 5, 2006. Extension of Time Limit for Final Results of Review Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), requires the Department to issue (1) the preliminary results of a review within 245 days after the last day of the month in which occurs the anniversary of the date of publication of an order or finding for which a review is requested, and (2) the final results within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within that 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 and the final results to a maximum of 180 days (or 300 days if the Department does not extend the time limit for the preliminary results) from the date of the publication of the preliminary results. See 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2). We determine that it is not practicable to complete the final results of this review within the original time limits. Due to the complexity of issues present in this administrative review, such as BGH’s claim of a downward adjustment to normal value for home market commissions and the Department’s upward adjustment to BGH’s cost of manufacture, the Department needs more time to address these items and evaluate the issues more thoroughly. Therefore, we are extending the deadline for the final results of this review by 30 days. Accordingly, the final results will be issued no later than July 3, 2006. This extension is in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2). PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 27465 Dated: May 5, 2006. Stephen J.

ACTION: Notice; request for comments. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Assistant Regional Administrator for Sustainable Fisheries, Northeast Region, NMFS (Assistant Regional Administrator) has made a preliminary determination that the subject exempted fishing permit (EEP) application contains all the required information and warrants further consideration. The EEP, which would enable researchers to investigate the feasibility of using a raised footnote trawl to catch haddock and pollock while limiting cod and flounder by catch, would allow for exemptions from the FMP as follows: Gulf of Maine (GOM) Rolling Closure Areas II and IV; and the minimum mesh size for trawl gear. The Assistant Regional Administrator has also made a preliminary determination that the activities authorized under the EFP would be consistent with the goals and objectives of the Northeast (NE) Multispecies Fishery Management Plan (FMP). However, further review and consultation may be necessary before a final determinations is made to issue the EFP. Therefore, NMFS announces that the Assistant Regional Administrator proposes to recommend that an EFP is issued that would allow two commercial fishing vessels to conduct fishing operations that are otherwise restricted by the regulations governing the fisheries of the Northeastern United States. Regulations under the MagnusonStevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act require publication of this notification to provide interested parties the opportunity to comment on applications for proposed EFPs.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mark Grant, Fishery Management Specialist, phone 978–281–9273. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A complete application for an EFP was submitted on April 11, 206, by Dr. Pingguo He of the University of New Hampshire (UNH) for a Northeast Consortium contract project. The primary goal of the research is to design and test a high opening haddock raised footrope trawl for potential use in the Regulator B Days-at-Sea (DAS) program in the GOM. The proposed work is the second year of a two-year project. Year one included flume tank tails and at-sea trails by one vessel to test net configurations. During the second year of the project, two vessels, the F/V North Star (Federal permit number 270699) and the F/V Persistence (Federal permit number 230290), would be involved in the at-sea research. During the first year, researches were unable to complete all 10 days of the at-sea trails authorized by a previous EFP. For this year’s EFP, the researchers have requested that one vessel be exempted from Rolling Closure Areas III and IV, and the minimum mesh size requirements for the GOM RMA under this EFP for up to seven DAS during the 2006 fishing year in order to complete those trails. Subsequent to these trails, two vessels would engage in side-by-side trawling using 12 DAS each. One vessel would use the experimental net and the other ADDRESSES: would use a regulation commercial net as a control. All trails would occur in the area north of 42°50′ N. lat., and wet of 69°00′W. long. in inshore waters of the GOM, excluding the Western GOM Closure Area. Researchers have asked for an exemption to the regulations at § 648.81(f)(1)(iii) and (iv), establishing GOM Rolling Closure Areas III and IV, for both vessels because they believe that an optimum mixture of haddock, pollock, cod, and flounder will be present in the waters of the Western GOM during May and June to test the experimental gear. Because the aim of the project is to develop gear that could separate haddock and pollock from cod and flounder before the fish are brought onboard, an exemption from GOM Rolling Closures III and IV is important to the success of the study. Researchers have also requested an exemption from the minimum mesh size requirement for the GOM Regulated Mesh Area (RMS) at § 648.809(a)(3)(i) for seven DAS. During these seven DAS, net configuration trails will be conducted. Use of a small mesh cod end, or liner, is necessary to collect fish released from the trawl in order to quantify the effect o the separator trawl and make effective comparisons of the net configurations tested. Net configuration trails would consist of a maximum of four 1-hour tows per DAS. Side-by-side trawling trails would consist of a maximum of four 2-hour tows by each vessel per DAS. Additionally, researchers would use remote underwater video observation and acoustic gear geometry monitoring to assess the success of the net during the at-sea trials. The design of the net would consist of long drop-chains hanging between the fishing ling and the sweep (raised footrope), creating a space for cod, flounders, and other benthic animals to escape or fall under the fishing line while the vessel targets primarily haddock and pollock. The trawl would incorporate large meshes in the wings and belly, and kites in the square near the headline. Kites may also be used near the ends of the wings to expand the trawl. The weight of all haddock, pollock, cod, and flounder will be determined for each control and experimental tow. If available, 70 of each major groundfish species, both legal and sub-legal sizes, would be measured from alternating control and experimental tows. The overall fishing mortality for the experimental net is estimated to be 30 percent of the average commercial fishing mortality on a DAS due to both the species-selective design of the net and the reduced amount of time spent towing each day. The overall fishing mortality for the commercial net is estimated to be 50 percent of the average commercial fishing mortality on a DAS due to the reduced amount of time spent towing each day. The researcher anticipates that a total of 18,978 lb (8,608 kg) of fish, including 6,612 lb (2,999 kg) of cod, would be sacrificed throughout the course of the study (see Tables 1 and 2 below). All research would be conducted using A DAS, even though daily fishing mortality is estimated to be less than 50 percent of commercial fishing mortality.

The petition requested that men’s knit sweaters made of such yarn be eligible for preferential treatment under the AGOA. CITA has determined that the subject yarn can be supplied by the domestic industry in commercial quantities in a timely manner and, therefore, denies the request. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Anna Flaaten, International Trade Specialist, Office of Textiles and Apparel, U.S. Department of Commerce, (202) 482-3400. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Authority: Section 112(b)(5)(B) of the AGOA; Presidential Proclamation 7350 of October 2, 2000; Section 1 of Executive Order No. 13191 of January 17, 2001. Background: The AGOA provides for quota- and duty-free treatment for qualifying textile and apparel products. Such treatment is generally limited to products manufactured from yarns and fabrics formed in the United States or a beneficiary country. The AGOA also provides for quota- and duty-free treatment for apparel articles that are both cut (or knit-to-shape) and sewn or otherwise assembled in one or more beneficiary countries from fabric or yarn that is not formed in the United States, if it has been determined that such fabric or yarn cannot be supplied by the domestic industry in commercial quantities in a timely manner. In Executive Order No. 13191 (66 FR 7271), CITA has been delegated the authority to determine whether yarns or fabrics cannot be supplied by the domestic industry in commercial quantities in a timely manner under the AGOA. On March 6, 2001, CITA published procedures that it will follow in considering requests (66 FR 13502). On March 6, 2006, the Chairman of CITA received a petition from Shibani Inwear alleging that a certain combed and ring-spun yarn, of a 92-percent cotton and 8-percent cashmere blend, comprised of 2/32 Nm resulting in a 16 Nm yarn size, classified in HTSUS subheading 5205.42.00.20, cannot be PO 00000 Frm 00019 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 27467 supplied by the domestic industry in commercial quantities in a timely manner. The petition requested that men’s knit sweaters made of such yarn be eligible for preferential treatment under the AGOA. On March 15, 2006, CITA published a notice in the Federal Register requesting public comments on the petition (71 FR 13359), particularly with respect to whether this yarn can be supplied by the domestic industry in commercial quantities in a timely manner. On March 31, 2006, CITA and USTR offered to hold consultations with the House Ways and Means Committee and the Senate Finance Committee, but no consultations were requested. We also requested advice from the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) and the relevant Industry Trade Advisory Committees. Based on the information and advice CITA received, public comments, and the report from the ITC, CITA found that there is domestic capacity and ability to supply the subject yarn in commercial quantities in a timely manner. North Carolina Spinning Mills currently makes cashmere blend yarns and can supply the subject yarn in the quantities specified by the petitioner. On the basis of currently available information and our review of this request, CITA has determined that there is domestic capacity to supply the subject yarn in commercial quantities in a timely manner. The request from Shibani Inwear is denied. James C. Leonard III, Chairman, Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements. [FR Doc.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A complete application for an EFP was 
submitted on April 11, 206, by Dr. Pingguo He of the University of New 
Hampshire (UNH) for a Northeast Consortium contract project. The 
primary goal of the research is to design and test a high opening 
haddock raised footrope trawl for potential use in the Regulator B 
Days-at-Sea (DAS) program in the GOM.
    The proposed work is the second year of a two-year project. Year 
one included flume tank tails and at-sea trails by one vessel to test 
net configurations. During the second year of the project, two vessels, 
the F/V North Star (Federal permit number 270699) and the F/V 
Persistence (Federal permit number 230290), would be involved in the 
at-sea research. During the first year, researches were unable to 
complete all 10 days of the at-sea trails authorized by a previous EFP. 
For this year's EFP, the researchers have requested that one vessel be 
exempted from Rolling Closure Areas III and IV, and the minimum mesh 
size requirements for the GOM RMA under this EFP for up to seven DAS 
during the 2006 fishing year in order to complete those trails. 
Subsequent to these trails, two vessels would engage in side-by-side 
trawling using 12 DAS each. One vessel would use the experimental net 
and the other would use a regulation commercial net as a control. All 
trails would occur in the area north of 42[deg]50' N. lat., and wet of 
69[deg]00'W. long. in inshore waters of the GOM, excluding the Western 
GOM Closure Area. Researchers have asked for an exemption to the 
regulations at Sec.  648.81(f)(1)(iii) and (iv), establishing GOM 
Rolling Closure Areas III and IV, for both vessels because they believe 
that an optimum mixture of haddock, pollock, cod, and flounder will be 
present in the waters of the Western GOM during May and June to test 
the experimental gear. Because the aim of the project is to develop 
gear that could separate haddock and pollock from cod and flounder 
before the fish are brought onboard, an exemption from GOM Rolling 
Closures III and IV is important to the success of the study. 
Researchers have also requested an exemption from the minimum mesh size 
requirement for the GOM Regulated Mesh Area (RMS) at Sec.  
648.809(a)(3)(i) for seven DAS. During these seven DAS, net 
configuration trails will be conducted. Use of a small mesh cod end, or 
liner, is necessary to collect fish released from the trawl in order to 
quantify the effect o the separator trawl and make effective 
comparisons of the net configurations tested.
    Net configuration trails would consist of a maximum of four 1-hour 
tows per DAS. Side-by-side trawling trails would consist of a maximum

    The weight of all haddock, pollock, cod, and flounder will be 
determined for each control and experimental tow. If available, 70 of 
each major groundfish species, both legal and sub-legal sizes, would be

fishing mortality for the experimental net is estimated to be 30 
percent of the average commercial fishing mortality on a DAS due to 
both the species-selective design of the net and the reduced amount of 
time spent towing each day. The overall fishing mortality for the 
commercial net is estimated to be 50 percent of the average commercial 
fishing mortality on a DAS due to the reduced amount of time spent 
towing each day. The researcher anticipates that a total of 18,978 lb 
(8,608 kg) of fish, including 6,612 lb (2,999 kg) of cod, would be 
sacrificed throughout the course of the study (see Tables 1 and 2 
below). All research would be conducted using A DAS, even though daily 
fishing mortality is estimated to be less than 50 percent of commercial 
fishing mortality.
