Download as PDF mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 238 / Wednesday, December 12, 2007 / Notices Expiration Date of Approval: June 30, 2008. Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection. Abstract: The Forest Service contracts with approximately 400 vendors a year for aviation services utilized in resource protection and project management. In recent years, the total annual use of contract aircraft and pilots has exceeded 100,000 hours. In order to maintain an acceptable level of safety, preparedness, and cost-effectiveness in aviation operations, Forest Service contracts include rigorous qualifications for pilots and specific condition, equipment, and performance requirements for aircraft as aviation operations are conducted under extremely adverse conditions of weather, terrain, turbulence, smokereduced visibility, minimally improved landing areas, and congested airspace around wildfires. To ensure Agency contracting officers that pilots and aircraft used for aviation operations meet specific Forest Service qualifications and requirements for aviation operations, prospective contract pilots fill out one of the following Forest Service forms: • FS–5700–20—Airplane Pilot Qualifications and Approval Record • FS–5700–20a—Helicopter Pilot Qualifications and Approval Record Contract Officers’ Technical Representatives use forms: • FS–5700–21—Airplane Data Record and • FS–5700–21a—Helicopter Data Record when inspecting the aircraft for contract compliance. Based upon the approval(s) documented on the form(s), each contractor pilot and aircraft receives an approval card. Forest Service personnel verify possession of properly approved cards before using contracted pilots and aircraft. Information collected on these forms includes: • Name. • Address. • Certification numbers. • Employment history. • Medical Certification. • Airplane/helicopter certifications and specifications. • Accident/violation history. Without the collected information, Forest Service contracting officers, as well as Forest Service pilot and aircraft inspections, cannot determine if contracted pilots and aircraft meet the detailed qualification, equipment, and condition requirements essential to safe, effective accomplishment of Forest Service specified flying missions. Without a reasonable basis to determine pilot qualifications and aircraft VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:54 Dec 11, 2007 Jkt 214001 capability, exposure of Forest Service employees to hazardous conditions would result. The data collected documents the approval of contract pilots and aircraft for specific Forest Service aviation missions. Information will be collected and reviewed by contracting officers or their designated representatives, including aircraft inspectors, to determine whether the aircraft and/or pilot(s) meet all contract specifications in accordance with FS Handbook 5709.16, chapter 10, section 16. Forest Service regional aviation pilot and aircraft inspectors maintain the collected information in Forest Service regional headquarters offices. The Forest Service, at times, shares the information with the Department of the Interior Aviation Management Directorate, as each organization accepts contract inspections conducted by the other. Estimate of Annual Burden: 60 minutes. Type of Respondents: Vendors/ contractors. Estimated Annual Number of Respondents: 2100. Estimated Annual Number of Responses per Respondent: 1. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 1050. Comment is invited on: (1) Whether this collection of information is necessary for the stated purposes and the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, including whether the information will have practical or scientific utility; (2) the accuracy of the Agency’s estimate of the burden of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including the use of automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology. All comments received in response to this notice, including names and addresses when provided, will be a matter of public record. Comments will be summarized and included in the request for Office of Management and Budget approval. Dated: December 5, 2007. Robin L. Thompson, Associate Deputy Chief. [FR Doc.

On August 1, 2007, we sent a supplemental questionnaire to CP Kelco, requesting certain information about factoring expenses. CP Kelco responded to this questionnaire on August 15, 2007. See Letter from CP Kelco, dated August 15, 2007 (CP Kelco’s August 15, 2007, Questionnaire Response).

In the Preliminary Results we invited parties to provide comments. In response, the Department received a case brief on September 10, 2007, from CP Kelco. On September 10, 2007, the Department also received a letter from Petitioner alleging programming errors in the calculation of the Preliminary Results dumping margin. Also, on September 17, 2007, Petitioner submitted a rebuttal brief. At CP Kelco’s request, the Department held a public hearing on September 26, 2007. Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by this order is all purified carboxymethylcellulose (CMC), sometimes also referred to as purified sodium CMC, polyanionic cellulose, or cellulose gum, which is a white to off– white, non–toxic, odorless, biodegradable powder, comprising PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 sodium CMC that has been refined and purified to a minimum assay of 90 percent. CMC does not include unpurified or crude CMC, CMC Fluidized Polymer Suspensions, and CMC that is cross–linked through heat treatment.

The merchandise subject to this order is classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States at subheading 3912.31.00. This tariff classification is provided for convenience and customs purposes; however, the written description of the scope of the order is dispositive.

A list of the issues which parties have raised and to which we have responded, all of which are in the Decision Memorandum, is attached to this notice as an appendix. The Issues and Decision Memorandum is on file in room B–099 of the main Department of Commerce building. In addition, a complete version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly on the Internet at http://www.ia.ita.doc.gov/frn/ index.html. The paper copy and electronic version of the Decision Memorandum are identical in content. In addition, Petitioner submitted a letter in which it alleged certain programming errors. See Letter from Edward M. Lebow regarding ‘‘Purified Carboxymethylcellulose from Finland; Demonstration of Programming Errors in Lieu of Case Brief,’’ dated September 10, 2007 (Petitioner’s Allegation of Programming Errors) . Successor–In-Interest Determination In the Preliminary Results, we preliminarily determined that CP Kelco Oy is the successor–in-interest to the former Noviant Oy for purposes of this proceeding and application of the antidumping law. We did not receive comments on this issue and have no reason to change our findings from the Preliminary Results. For a complete discussion of our successorship analysis, see Preliminary Results at 44107 to 44108. As a result of our review, we determine that CP Kelco Oy is the successor–in-interest to Noviant Oy. E:\FR\FM\12DEN1.SGM 12DEN1
