SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On March 8, 2006, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on Heavy Forged Hand Tools, Finished or Unfinished, With or Without Handles, from the People’s Republic of China, covering the period February 1, 2004, through January 31, 2005.

Extension of Time Limit for Final Results Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), and section 351.213(h)(1) of the Department’s regulations, the Department shall issue the preliminary results of an administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the antidumping duty order. The Act further provides that the Department shall issue the final results of a review within 120 days after the date on which the notice of the preliminary results was published in the Federal Register. However, if the Department determines that it is not practicable to complete the review within this time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and section 351.213(h)(2) of the Department’s regulations allow the Department to extend the 245–day period to 365 days and the 120–day period to 180 days. On June 9, 2006, the Department extended the deadline for issuing the final results by 25 days, from July 6, 2006, to July 31, 2006. See Heavy Forged Hand Tools, Finished or Unfinished, With or Without Handles, from the People’s Republic of China: Extension of Time Limit for the Final Results of the 14th Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 71 FR 33438 (June 9, 2006). The Department determines that the completion of the final results of this review by the original extended deadline is not practicable. As noted in the first extension notice, the Department requires additional time to analyze comments regarding the four companies involved in the instant review, each of which exported subject merchandise in at least one of the four classes or kinds of merchandise covered by this order, along with complex affiliation and agent sale issues. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time period for issuing the final results of this review by 35 days. Since a 35–day extension would result in the deadline for the final results falling on September 4, 2006, which is a federal holiday, the new deadline for the final results will be the next business day, September 5, 2006.

The application and related documents are available for review upon written request to the address above or the E-mail address below. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mark Sramek, 727–824–5311; fax 727– 824–5308; E-mail: Mark.Sramek@noaa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The EFP is requested under the authority of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq.), and regulations at VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:40 Aug 01, 2006 Jkt 208001 50 CFR 600.745(b) concerning exempted fishing. According to the applicant, the North Carolina Sea Grant Extension Program receives federal funding through the National Sea Grant College Program, as well as state appropriations. Through research, education and outreach programs, North Carolina Sea Grant works with individuals, groups, government agencies and businesses to develop an understanding of the state’s coastal environment and promote the sustainable use of marine resources. The proposed collection for scientific research involves activities otherwise prohibited by regulations implementing the Fishery Management Plan for the Snapper-Grouper Fisheries of the South Atlantic Region (FMP). The applicant requires authorization to harvest and possess black sea bass for scientific research activities during the period from October 1, 2006, through March 31, 2007. Specimens would be collected from Federal waters off the coast of North Carolina during the specified sampling period. Fish would be captured using standard and experimental modification designs to Council-approved sea bass pots used for the harvest of black sea bass in the South Atlantic region. Three types of sea bass pots would be employed during the study: One standard-type pot constructed of 1.5– inch (3.8–cm) mesh with a 2–inch (5.1– cm) mesh back panel; a second, experimental-type pot constructed entirely of 2–inch mesh (5.1–cm) (both pot types are currently approved by the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council (Council) for commercial fishing for black sea bass); the third, control-type pot constructed entirely of 1.5–inch (3.8–cm) mesh with no escape vents. The purpose of the control-type pot is to provide an indication of the number and range of size classes of black sea bass present at each sample location. To avoid continued fishing activity and subsequent fish mortality in the event of lost pots, all three pot types will include a wire panel affixed with degradable fasteners. Control-type pots, as outlined above, will only be employed as part of this study and will not be utilized during normal commercial fishing operations. The study will employ a randomized fishing location design, or block, of three sea bass pots per block (one control-type, an experimental-type, and standard-type pots) within 10 blocks per trip. Individual pots will be randomly placed approximately 10 to 30 meters apart within each block; a total of 13 sampling trips will be performed from October 1, 2006, through March 31, 2007. All PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 43715 captured fish will be identified by species, measured, and released if undersized. Prior to release, the presence of barotraumatic effects on black sea bass will be recorded. No undersized fish will be retained in this study. NMFS finds that this application warrants further consideration. Based on a preliminary review, NMFS intends to issue an EFP. Possible conditions the agency may impose on this permit, if it is indeed granted, include but are not limited to: Reduction in the number of sea bass pots to be employed; restrictions on the placement of sea bass pots; prohibition of the harvest of any fish with visible external tags; and specification of locations, dates, and/or seasons allowed for collection of particular fish species. A final decision on issuance of the EFP will depend on a NMFS review of public comments received on the application, consultations with the affected states, the Council, and the U.S. Coast Guard, and a determination that it is consistent with all applicable laws. The applicant requests a 6-month effective period for the EFP. Authority: 16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq. Dated: July 28, 2006. James P.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On March 8, 2006, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') 
published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on Heavy Forged Hand Tools, Finished or 
Unfinished, With or Without Handles, from the People's Republic of 
China, covering the period February 1, 2004, through January 31, 2005. 
See Heavy Forged Hand Tools, Finished or Unfinished, With or Without 
Handles, From the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results of 
Administrative Reviews and Preliminary Partial Rescission of 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews, 71 FR 11580 (March 8, 2006).

Extension of Time Limit for Final Results

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (``the Act''), and section 351.213(h)(1) of the Department's 
regulations, the Department shall issue the preliminary results of an 
administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the 
anniversary month of the date of publication of the antidumping duty 
order. The Act further provides that the Department shall issue the 
final results of a review within 120 days after the date on which the 
notice of the preliminary results was published in the Federal 
Register. However, if the Department determines that it is not 
practicable to complete the review within this time period, section 
751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and section 351.213(h)(2) of the Department's 
regulations allow the Department to extend the 245-day period to 365 
days and the 120-day period to 180 days.
    On June 9, 2006, the Department extended the deadline for issuing 
the final results by 25 days, from July 6, 2006, to July 31, 2006. See 
Heavy Forged Hand Tools, Finished or Unfinished, With or Without 
Handles, from the People's Republic of China: Extension of Time Limit 
for the Final Results of the 14th Antidumping Duty Administrative 
Review, 71 FR 33438 (June 9, 2006). The Department determines that the 
completion of the final results of this review by the original extended 
deadline is not practicable. As noted in the first extension notice, 
the Department requires additional time to analyze comments regarding 
the four companies involved in the instant review, each of which 
exported subject merchandise in at least one of the four classes or 
kinds of merchandise covered by this order, along with complex 
affiliation and agent sale issues. Therefore, in accordance with 
section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time 
period for issuing the final results of this review by 35 days. Since a 
35-day extension would result in the deadline for the final results 
falling on September 4, 2006, which is a federal holiday, the new 
deadline for the final results will be the next business day, September 
5, 2006. 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).
