OMB Number: 0579–0065. Type of Request: Extension of approval of an information collection. Abstract: The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture regulates the importation and interstate movement of animals and animal products, and conducts various other activities to protect the health of our Nation’s livestock and poultry. The Swine Health Protection Act prohibits the feeding of garbage to swine unless the garbage has been treated to kill disease organisms. Untreated garbage is one of the primary media through which numerous infectious and communicable diseases can be transmitted to swine. APHIS’ regulations promulgated under the VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:09 Oct 10, 2007 Jkt 214001 Swine Health Protection Act, which are located at 9 CFR part 166, require that, before garbage may be fed to swine, it must be treated at a facility holding a valid permit to treat the garbage and must be treated according to the regulations. APHIS requires certain information in order to license (issue a permit to) a facility to operate and in order to monitor the facility for compliance with the regulations. This information is collected from applications for a license to operate a garbage treatment facility, records of the destination and date of removal of all food waste or garbage from the treatment facility, and food waste reports. With this information, we are able to carefully monitor garbage treatment facilities to ensure that they are meeting our requirements. The information provided by these information collection activities is critical in preventing the interstate spread of various swine diseases and, therefore, plays a vital role in our swine health protection program. We are asking the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to approve our use of these information collection activities for an additional 3 years. The purpose of this notice is to solicit comments from the public (as well as affected agencies) concerning this information collection. These comments will help us: (1) Evaluate whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of our estimate of the burden of the information collection, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the information collection on those who are to respond, through use, as appropriate, of automated, electronic, mechanical, and other collection technologies, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. Estimate of burden: The public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 0.927559193 hours per response. Respondents: Owners/operators (licensees) of garbage treatment facilities, State animal health authorities, and herd owners. Estimated annual number of respondents: 1,916. Estimated annual number of responses per respondent: 5.929540709. PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 57911 Estimated annual number of responses: 11,361. Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 10,538 hours. (Due to averaging, the total annual burden hours may not equal the product of the annual number of responses multiplied by the reporting burden per response.) All responses to this notice will be summarized and included in the request for OMB approval. All comments will also become a matter of public record. Done in Washington, DC, this 4th day of October 2007. Kevin Shea, Acting Administrator, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service. [FR Doc.

DATES: Effective Dates: October 11, 2007. SUMMARY: Swagelok Company (Swagelok), an interested party, filed a request for the Department to initiate a changed circumstances review of the antidumping duty order on stainless steel bar from the United Kingdom. Carpenter Technology Corp., Crucible Specialty Metals Division of Crucible Materials Corp., Electralloy Corp., North American Stainless, Universal Stainless & Alloy Products, Inc., and Valbruna Slater Stainless, Inc. (collectively the Domestic Industry) submitted a letter to the Department expressing a lack of interest in continuing to have the product in question subject to the antidumping duty order. The Domestic Industry also stated that it is a major domestic producer of stainless steel bar. Therefore, we are notifying the public of our intent to revoke, in part, the antidumping duty order as it relates to imports of SAF 2507 grade stainless steel bar from the United Kingdom. Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with NOTICES Background On March 7, 2002, the Department published in the Federal Register an antidumping duty order on stainless steel bar from the United Kingdom. See Antidumping Duty Order: Stainless Steel Bar from the United Kingdom, 67 FR 10381 (March 7, 2002). On August 27, 2007, Swagelok, an interested party, requested that the Department initiate a changed circumstances review to exclude a certain stainless steel bar product (SAF 2507 grade bar) from the antidumping duty order on stainless steel bar from the United Kingdom. On September 18, 2007, the Domestic Industry submitted a letter affirming that the Domestic Industry does not object to the exclusion of the product identified in the August 27, 2007, request submitted by Swagelok for a changed circumstances review with respect to the antidumping duty order on stainless steel bar from the United Kingdom. On September 21, 2007, the petitioners submitted a statement affirming that they account for substantially all of the U.S. production of stainless steel bar, exceeding 85 percent of total domestic production. On September 25, 2007, Sandvik Bioline, a U.K. producer of stainless steel bar, provided a technical description of the stainless steel bar product Swagelok has requested to be excluded from the scope of the antidumping duty order.1 Scope of the Order For purposes of this order, the term ‘‘stainless steel bar’’ includes articles of stainless steel in straight lengths that have been either hot-rolled, forged, turned, cold-drawn, cold-rolled or otherwise cold-finished, or ground, having a uniform solid cross section along their whole length in the shape of circles, segments of circles, ovals, rectangles (including squares), triangles, hexagons, octagons, or other convex polygons. Stainless steel bar includes cold-finished stainless steel bars that are turned or ground in straight lengths, whether produced from hot-rolled bar or from straightened and cut rod or wire, and reinforcing bars that have indentations, ribs, grooves, or other deformations produced during the rolling process. 1 Sandvik Bioline is the producer of the product which is the subject of Swagelok’s changed circumstances review request. VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:09 Oct 10, 2007 Jkt 214001 Except as specified above, the term does not include stainless steel semifinished products, cut length flat-rolled products (i.e., cut length rolled products which if less than 4.75 mm in thickness have a width measuring at least 10 times the thickness, or if 4.75 mm or more in thickness having a width which exceeds 150 mm and measures at least twice the thickness), products that have been cut from stainless steel sheet, strip or plate, wire (i.e., cold-formed products in coils, of any uniform solid cross section along their whole length, which do not conform to the definition of flat-rolled products), and angles, shapes and sections. The stainless steel bar subject to this order is currently classifiable under subheadings 7222.11.00.05, 7222.11.00.50, 7222.19.00.05, 7222.19.00.50, 7222.20.00.05, 7222.20.00.45, 7222.20.00.75, and 7222.30.00.00 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of this order is dispositive. Initiation and Preliminary Results of Changed Circumstances Review, and Intent To Revoke Order in Part At the request of Swagelok, and in accordance with sections 751(d)(1) and 751(b)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.216, the Department is initiating a changed circumstances review of the antidumping duty order on stainless steel bar from the United Kingdom to determine whether partial revocation of this order is warranted with respect to SAF 2507 grade stainless steel bar. Section 782(h)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.222(g)(1)(i) provide that the Department may revoke an order (in whole or in part) if it determines that producers accounting for substantially all of the production of the domestic like product have no further interest in the order, in whole or in part. In addition, in the event that the Department determines that expedited action is warranted, 19 CFR 351.221(c)(3)(ii) permits the Department to combine the notices of initiation and preliminary results. In accordance with section 751(b) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.222(g)(1)(i) and 351.221(c)(3), we are initiating this changed circumstances review and have determined that expedited action is warranted. We find that the petitioners’ affirmative statement of no interest constitutes good cause for the conduct of this review. Additionally, our decision to expedite this review stems from the Domestic Industry’s lack of interest in applying the antidumping duty order to the specific stainless steel PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 bar product (i.e., SAF 2507 grade bar) covered by this request. Based on the expression of no interest by the petitioners and absent any objection by any other domestic interested parties, we have preliminarily determined that substantially all of the domestic producers of the like product have no interest in the continued application of the antidumping duty order on stainless steel bar to SAF 2507 grade bar. Therefore, we are notifying the public of our intent to revoke, in part, the antidumping duty order as it relates to imports of SAF 2507 grade stainless steel bar from the United Kingdom. We intend to change the scope of the order with respect to excluded products to read as follows: Except as specified above, the scope does not include stainless steel semi-finished products, cut length flat-rolled products (i.e., cut length rolled products which if less than 4.75 mm in thickness have a width measuring at least 10 times the thickness, or if 4.75 mm or more in thickness having a width which exceeds 150 mm and measures at least twice the thickness), products that have been cut from stainless steel sheet, strip or plate, wire (i.e., cold-formed products in coils, of any uniform solid cross section along their whole length, which do not conform to the definition of flat-rolled products), and angles, shapes and sections. Also excluded from the scope of the order is grade SAF 2507 stainless steel bar. SAF 2507 is cold worked and finished Super Duplex stainless steel bar material in round and hexagonal form, conforming to UNS S32750, having elevated ultimate tensile strength in excess of 140Ksi minimum and a PRE (pitting resistant equivalent) value of 42.5 minimum, supplied in straight bar lengths. SAF 2507 grade stainless steel bar is currently classified under HTSUS subheadings 7222.20.00.45 and 7222.20.00.75. Public Comment Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results. Written comments may be submitted no later than 14 days after the date of publication of these preliminary results. Rebuttals to written comments, limited to issues raised in such comments, may be filed no later than 21 days after the date of publication. The Department will issue the final results of this changed circumstances review, which will include the results of its analysis raised in any such written comments, no later than 270 days after the date on which this review was initiated, or within 45 days if all parties agree to our preliminary results. See 19 CFR 351.216(e). If final revocation occurs, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to end the suspension of E:\FR\FM\11OCN1.SGM 11OCN1 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 196 / Thursday, October 11, 2007 / Notices liquidation for the merchandise covered by the revocation on the effective date of the notice of revocation and to release any cash deposit or bond. See 19 CFR 351.222(g)(4). The current requirement for a cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties on all subject merchandise will continue unless and until it is modified pursuant to the final results of this changed circumstances review. This initiation and preliminary results of review are in accordance with section 751(b) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.216, 351.221, and 351.222. October 4, 2007. David M.

On August 27, 2007, the Department aligned the deadlines and the time limits of the new shipper reviews of WBF with the 2006 administrative review of WBF. See Memorandum to the File from Gene Degnan, Case Analyst, through Wendy Frankel, Office Director, dated August 27, 2007. The preliminary results of these reviews are currently due no later than October 3, 2007. Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results. 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. Completion of the preliminary results of these reviews within the 245-day period is not practicable because the Department needs additional time to analyze information pertaining to the respondents’ sales practices, factors of production, and corporate relationships, to evaluate certain issues raised by the petitioners, and to issue and review responses to supplemental questionnaires. Because it is not practicable to complete these reviews within the time specified under the Act, we are fully extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of review to 365 days until January 31, 2008, 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. This notice is published pursuant to sections 751(a) and 777(i) of the Act. Dated: October 1, 2007.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On March 7, 2002, the Department published in the Federal Register 
an antidumping duty order on stainless steel bar from the United 
Kingdom. See Antidumping Duty Order: Stainless Steel Bar from the 
United Kingdom, 67 FR 10381 (March 7, 2002). On August 27, 2007, 
Swagelok, an interested party, requested that the Department initiate a 
changed circumstances review to exclude a certain stainless steel bar 
product (SAF 2507 grade bar) from the antidumping duty order on 
stainless steel bar from the United Kingdom. On September 18, 2007, the 
Domestic Industry submitted a letter affirming that the Domestic 
Industry does not object to the exclusion of the product identified in 
the August 27, 2007, request submitted by Swagelok for a changed 
circumstances review with respect to the antidumping duty order on 
stainless steel bar from the United Kingdom. On September 21, 2007, the 
petitioners submitted a statement affirming that they account for 
substantially all of the U.S. production of stainless steel bar, 
exceeding 85 percent of total domestic production. On September 25, 
2007, Sandvik Bioline, a U.K. producer of stainless steel bar, provided 
a technical description of the stainless steel bar product Swagelok has 
requested to be excluded from the scope of the antidumping duty 
order.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Sandvik Bioline is the producer of the product which is the 
subject of Swagelok's changed circumstances review request.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Order

    For purposes of this order, the term ``stainless steel bar'' 
includes articles of stainless steel in straight lengths that have been 
either hot-rolled, forged, turned, cold-drawn, cold-rolled or otherwise 
cold-finished, or ground, having a uniform solid cross section along 
their whole length in the shape of circles, segments of circles, ovals, 
rectangles (including squares), triangles, hexagons, octagons, or other 
convex polygons. Stainless steel bar includes cold-finished stainless 
steel bars that are turned or ground in straight lengths, whether 
produced from hot-rolled bar or from straightened and cut rod or wire, 
and reinforcing bars that have indentations, ribs, grooves, or other 
deformations produced during the rolling process.
    Except as specified above, the term does not include stainless 
steel semi-finished products, cut length flat-rolled products (i.e., 
cut length rolled products which if less than 4.75 mm in thickness have 
a width measuring at least 10 times the thickness, or if 4.75 mm or 
more in thickness having a width which exceeds 150 mm and measures at 
least twice the thickness), products that have been cut from stainless 
steel sheet, strip or plate, wire (i.e., cold-formed products in coils, 
of any uniform solid cross section along their whole length, which do 
not conform to the definition of flat-rolled products), and angles, 
shapes and sections. The stainless steel bar subject to this order is 
currently classifiable under subheadings 7222.11.00.05, 7222.11.00.50, 
7222.19.00.05, 7222.19.00.50, 7222.20.00.05, 7222.20.00.45, 
7222.20.00.75, and 7222.30.00.00 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of 
the United States (HTSUS). Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided 
for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the 
scope of this order is dispositive.

Initiation and Preliminary Results of Changed Circumstances Review, and 
Intent To Revoke Order in Part

    At the request of Swagelok, and in accordance with sections 
751(d)(1) and 751(b)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.216, the Department 
is initiating a changed circumstances review of the antidumping duty 
order on stainless steel bar from the United Kingdom to determine 
whether partial revocation of this order is warranted with respect to 
SAF 2507 grade stainless steel bar. Section 782(h)(2) of the Act and 19 
CFR 351.222(g)(1)(i) provide that the Department may revoke an order 
(in whole or in part) if it determines that producers accounting for 
substantially all of the production of the domestic like product have 
no further interest in the order, in whole or in part. In addition, in 
the event that the Department determines that expedited action is 
warranted, 19 CFR 351.221(c)(3)(ii) permits the Department to combine 
the notices of initiation and preliminary results.
    In accordance with section 751(b) of the Act, and 19 CFR 
351.222(g)(1)(i) and 351.221(c)(3), we are initiating this changed 
circumstances review and have determined that expedited action is 
warranted. We find that the petitioners' affirmative statement of no 
interest constitutes good cause for the conduct of this review. 
Additionally, our decision to expedite this review stems from the 
Domestic Industry's lack of interest in applying the antidumping duty 
order to the specific stainless steel bar product (i.e., SAF 2507 grade 
bar) covered by this request.
    Based on the expression of no interest by the petitioners and 
absent any objection by any other domestic interested parties, we have 
preliminarily determined that substantially all of the domestic 
producers of the like product have no interest in the continued 
application of the antidumping duty order on stainless steel bar to SAF 
2507 grade bar. Therefore, we are notifying the public of our intent to 
revoke, in part, the antidumping duty order as it relates to imports of 
SAF 2507 grade stainless steel bar from the United Kingdom.
    We intend to change the scope of the order with respect to excluded 
products to read as follows:

    Except as specified above, the scope does not include stainless 
steel semi-finished products, cut length flat-rolled products (i.e., 
cut length rolled products which if less than 4.75 mm in thickness 
have a width measuring at least 10 times the thickness, or if 4.75 
mm or more in thickness having a width which exceeds 150 mm and 
measures at least twice the thickness), products that have been cut 
from stainless steel sheet, strip or plate, wire (i.e., cold-formed 
products in coils, of any uniform solid cross section along their 
whole length, which do not conform to the definition of flat-rolled 
products), and angles, shapes and sections.
    Also excluded from the scope of the order is grade SAF 2507 
stainless steel bar. SAF 2507 is cold worked and finished Super 
Duplex stainless steel bar material in round and hexagonal form, 
conforming to UNS S32750, having elevated ultimate tensile strength 
in excess of 140Ksi minimum and a PRE (pitting resistant equivalent) 
value of 42.5 minimum, supplied in straight bar lengths. SAF 2507 
grade stainless steel bar is currently classified under HTSUS 
subheadings 7222.20.00.45 and 7222.20.00.75.

Public Comment
