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.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The International System of Units (SI) (the metric system of measurement) has been recognized for use in the United States since 1866 (15 U.S.C. 204) and is the preferred system of measurement for trade and commerce. The SI was established and is maintained by the General Conference of Weights and Measures and is interpreted or modified for use in the United States by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) by authority of the Secretary of Commerce (15 U.S.C. 205). This notice describes the recent modifications to the SI and announces the publication of the latest interpretation of the SI for the United States in the 2008 Edition of NIST Special Publication 330 ‘‘The International System of Units.’’ The 2008 Edition of NIST Special Publication 811 ‘‘Guide for the Use of the International System of Units’’ was also published. Together these publications provide the legal interpretation of and guidelines for the use of the SI in the United States.

PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The International System of Units (abbreviated as SI in all languages), generally known as the metric system, is the preferred system of measurement for use in trade and commerce in the United States (15 U.S.C. 205b) but use of traditional systems of weights and measures in non-business activities is permitted. The SI was established in 1960 by the General Conference of Weights and Measures (abbreviated CGPM in all languages) and is interpreted, or modified for, the United States by the Secretary of Commerce (15 U.S.C. 205c) who has delegated this authority to the Director of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The CGPM is an international organization established by the Meter Convention in 1875 in which more than 50 countries participate. One of the responsibilities of the CGPM is to ensure the SI reflects the latest advances in science and technology and provides a single international language for measurement. In 2006 the CGPM published changes to the SI in the 8th Edition of the Bureau of International Weights and Measures SI publication commonly known as the ‘‘SI Brochure.’’ This notice describes the modifications to the SI and announces the publication of the latest interpretation of the SI for the United States in the 2008 Edition of NIST Special Publication (SP) 330 ‘‘The International System of Units (SI).’’ NIST SP 330 describes the history of the Meter Convention, explains how the International System of Units was developed, and describes the global effort to maintain the system. A comprehensive description of the SI’s base units, terminology, units and symbols is also provided. A description of the decimal system and the appropriate multiples and submultiples to be used in expressing units and values is included. Also provided are editorial style guidelines to ensure that SI values and units are properly formatted and clearly written. NIST has also published the 2008 Edition of its Special Publication 811 ‘‘Guide for the Use of the International System of Units (SI),’’ which includes additional guidance on the use of the SI and a broad range of conversion factors. When used together, these publications provide the most current interpretation of the SI and present the latest guidance on the use of the SI in the United States. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Changes to the International System of Units (SI) The CGPM adopted the following changes in the 8th Edition (2006) of the SI Brochure and these have been E:\FR\FM\16MYN1.SGM 16MYN1

Background

    The Department of Commerce (``Department'') published an 
antidumping duty order on hand trucks and certain parts thereof (``hand 
trucks'') from the People's Republic of China (``PRC'') on December 2, 
2004.

[[Page 28432]]

See Notice of Antidumping Duty Order: Hand Trucks and Certain Parts 
Thereof From the People's Republic of China, 69 FR 70122 (December 2, 
2004). On February 2, 2007, the Department published in the Federal 
Register a notice of the initiation of the antidumping duty 
administrative review of hand trucks from the PRC for the period 
December 1, 2005, through November 30, 2006. See Initiation of 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request 
for Revocation in Part, 72 FR 5005 (February 2, 2007). On January 14, 
2008, the Department published in the Federal Register the preliminary 
results of the hand trucks administrative review. See Hand Trucks and 
Certain Parts Thereof from the People's Republic of China: Preliminary 
Results, Partial Intent to Rescind and Partial Rescission of the 2005-
06 Administrative Review, 73 FR 2214 (January 14, 2008). The final 
results of review are currently due no later than May 13, 2008.

Extension of Time Limit of Final Results.

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires the Department to issue final results within 120 days 
after the date on which the preliminary results are published. 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 180 days. Completion of the final 
results of the administrative review within the 120-day period in this 
case is not practicable because the Department conducted verification 
in the administrative review after publication of the preliminary 
results, and, therefore, needs additional time to complete post-
preliminary results verification reports, invite and analyze comments 
by interested parties on the preliminary results and verification 
reports, and analyze information gathered at verification.
    Because it is not practicable to complete this review within the 
time specified under the Act, we are fully extending the time period 
for issuing the final results of the administrative review in 
accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. Therefore, the final 
results are now due no later than July 14, 2008, the next business day 
after 180 days from publication of the preliminary results. This notice 
is published pursuant to sections 751(a) and 777(i) of the Act.
