Download as PDF sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 96 / Friday, May 16, 2008 / Notices Board) by Brown County, Wisconsin, grantee of FTZ 167, requesting specialpurpose subzone status for the shipbuilding facility of Marinette Marine Corporation (MMC), located in Marinette, Wisconsin. The application was submitted pursuant to the provisions of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a–81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR part 400). It was formally filed on May 12, 2008. The MMC facility (982 employees/53 acres/365,000 sq.ft.) is located at 1600 Ely Street in Marinette (Marinette County), Wisconsin. The facility is used to construct and repair patrol boats, tug boats, supply vessels, research vessels, anchor handlers, barges, and naval warships for U.S. and international customers. Foreign components that would be used at the MMC shipyard (representing about 20% of finished vessel value) include: marine engines and related parts, reduction gears, propellers, anti-fouling system control panels and anodes, mounting sleeves, fin stabilizers, dynamic positioning systems, winches, pumps, filtering equipment, valves, electronic components, wiring harnesses, generator sets, anchors, bulb flats, doors, windows, sanitary units, manholes, flow meters, chain, and fenders (duty rate range: free–5.0%). FTZ procedures would exempt MMC from customs duty payments on foreign components used in export activity. On domestic sales, MMC could be able to elect the duty rate applicable to oceangoing vessels (free) for the foreignorigin components noted above. Customs duties also could possibly be deferred or reduced on foreign status production equipment. The manufacturing and repair activity conducted under FTZ procedures would be subject to the ‘‘standard shipyard restriction’’ applicable to foreign-origin steel mill products (e.g., angles, pipe, plate) which requires that full duties be paid on such items. The application indicates that the savings from FTZ procedures would help improve the facility’s international competitiveness. In accordance with the Board’s regulations, Pierre Duy of the FTZ Staff is designated examiner to investigate the application and report to the Board. Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions (original and 3 copies) shall be addressed to the Board’s Executive Secretary at the address below. The closing period for their receipt is July 15, 2008. Rebuttal comments in response to material submitted during the foregoing period may be submitted during the subsequent 15-day period to July 30, 2008.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On October 31, 2007, the U.S. Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') published a notice of initiation of the administrative 
review of the countervailing duty order on certain lined paper products 
from India covering the period of review February 13, 2006, through 
December 31, 2006. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Administrative Reviews, 72 FR 61621 (October 31, 2007). The 
preliminary results are currently due no later than June 1, 2008.

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires the Department to make a preliminary determination 
within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order 
or finding for which a review is requested. Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the 
Act further states that if it is not practicable to complete the review 
within the time period specified, the administering authority may 
extend the 245-day period to issue its preliminary results by up to 120 
days.
    Due to the complexity of the issues in this administrative review, 
such as the nature of the programs subject to review, the Department 
requires additional time to transmit supplemental questionnaires and 
evaluate responses received. Accordingly, we have determined that it is 
not practicable to complete the preliminary results of this review 
within the 245-day period. Therefore, in accordance with section 
751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, we are extending the time period for issuing 
the preliminary results of the review by 120 days. The preliminary 
results are now due no later than September 29, 2008. The final results 
continue to be due 120 days after publication of the preliminary 
results.
    This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 
751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: May 9, 2008.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
