SUMMARY: NMFS announces the receipt of an application for an exempted fishing permit (EFP) from the Gulf and South Atlantic Fisheries Foundation, Inc. If granted, the EFP would authorize the applicants, with certain conditions, to collect limited numbers of undersized and out-of-season snapper and grouper in South Atlantic Federal waters. This study is intended to characterize catch and discard mortality within the South Atlantic commercial hook and line snapper-grouper fishery.

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 50 CFR 600.745(b) concerning exempted fishing. The described research is part of a Cooperative Research Program Grant (Cooperative Agreement No. NA06NMF4540059). The Cooperative Research Program is a means of involving commercial and/or recreational fishermen in the collection of fundamental fisheries information. Resource collection efforts support the development and evaluation of fisheries management and regulatory options. The proposed collection for scientific research involves activities otherwise prohibited by regulations implementing the Fishery Management Plan for the Snapper-Grouper Fishery of the South Atlantic Region. The applicants require authorization to harvest and possess undersized and out-of-season snapper and grouper for scientific research E:\FR\FM\16NON1.SGM 16NON1

Dynamic Random Access Memory Semiconductors from the Republic of 
Korea: Extension of Time Limit for Final Results of Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Review

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

EFFECTIVE DATE: November 16, 2006.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On September 28, 2005, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published a notice of initiation of administrative review of the 
countervailing duty order on dynamic random access memory 
semiconductors (DRAMs) from the Republic of Korea, covering the period 
January 1, 2004 through December 31, 2004. See Initiation of 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request 
for Revocation in Part, 70 FR 56631. On January 12, 2006, the 
petitioner, Micron Technology, Inc., alleged that the respondent, Hynix 
Semiconductor, Inc., received new subsidies. The Department published 
the preliminary results of this administrative review on August 11, 
2006. See Dynamic Random Access Memory Semiconductors from the Republic 
of Korea: Preliminary Results of Countervailing Duty Administrative 
Review, 71 FR 46192.

Statutory Time Limits

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), requires the Department to issue the preliminary results of an 
administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the 
anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested and the 
final results of review within 120 days after the date on which the 
preliminary results are published. If it is not practicable to complete 
the review within the time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act 
allows the Department to extend these deadlines to a maximum of 365 
days and 180 days, respectively.

Extension of Time Limits for Final Results

    This administrative review is extraordinarily complicated due to 
the complexity of the countervailable subsidy practices alleged in the 
new subsidy allegations. Because the Department requires additional 
time to review and analyze arguments raised by interested parties in 
their case and rebuttal briefs, it is not practicable to complete this 
review by the original deadline of December 9, 2006. Therefore, the 
Department is extending the time limit for completion of the final 
results to not later than February 7, 2007, in accordance with section 
751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: November 8, 2006.
Stephen J. Claeys,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
