Download as PDF mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 130 / Monday, July 7, 2008 / Notices responsibilities under the P&S Act. The information is necessary to monitor and examine financial, competitive, and trade practices in the livestock, meat packing, and poultry industries. The purpose of this notice is to solicit comments from the public concerning our changes to the Annual and Special Reports (Series 3000). The revisions to the Series 3000 forms include three general types of changes. First, each form has been redesigned to enhance its appearance and logical flow to facilitate clarity and data entry. Consistent with this goal, the forms have been formatted in a similar style. Second, the information collected on the Series 3000 forms has been reduced and a few new information collection items have been added. While pertinent information was retained, unnecessary information was deleted, and new information to help Packers and Stockyards Program analyze Annual Report information was added. The third general change is to combine forms when possible so that a regulated entity would not have to complete multiple annual forms, and two forms have been discontinued (P&SP–3110, ‘‘Supplemental Balance Sheet— Packers’’ and P&SP–3500, ‘‘Statement of Accounts Payable for Livestock— Special Report’’). A new form (P&SP– 7003, ‘‘Special Report for Review of Dealer, Market Agency, and Packer’’) that is shorter than the annual report form, has been created to collect information to allow GIPSA to establish the initial bond amount for businesses that register during the course of the year. Estimate of Burden: Public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 8.5 hours per response. Respondents (Affected Public): Livestock auction markets, livestock dealers, packer buyers, meat packers, and live poultry dealers. Estimated Number of Respondents: 10,950. Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 3.3. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 307,148 hours. As required by the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)) and its implementing regulations (5 CFR 1320.8(d)(1)(i)), we specifically request comments on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) The accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:39 Jul 03, 2008 Jkt 214001 validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) Ways to minimize the burden on the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology. All responses to this notice will be summarized and included in the request for the Office of Management and Budget approval. All comments will also become a matter of public record. Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3506 and 5 CFR 1320.8. James E. Link, Administrator, Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration. [FR Doc.

OMB Approval Number: None. Form Number(s): None. Type of Review: Regular submission. Burden Hours: 20. Number of Respondents: 20. Average Hours per Response: 1.

A key part of the program involves experts assessing participating laboratories to determine that they have the requisite technical competence and resources needed to test P25 equipment.

EFFECTIVE DATE: July 7, 2008. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Maryanne Burke or Robert James, AD/ CVD Operations, Office 7, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–5604 or (202) 482– 0649, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On December 3, 2007, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published in the Federal Register its notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on honey from Argentina. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 72 FR 67889 (December 3, 2007). In response, on December 31, 2007, the American Honey Producers Association and the Sioux Honey Association (collectively, petitioners) requested an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on honey from Argentina for the period December 1, 2006 through November 30, 2007. On January 28, 2008, the Department published a notice of initiation of this administrative review. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 73 FR 4829 (January 28, 2008). The current deadline for the preliminary results of this review is September 2, 2008. Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Tariff Act), requires the Department to complete 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. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within this time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act allows the Department to extend the 245-day time PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 limit for the preliminary results to a maximum of 365 days. The Department has determined it is not practicable to complete this review within the statutory time limit because we require additional time to conduct sales below–cost investigations of three respondents. We also require additional time to fully develop the record and analyze information related to the request for partial revocation of the order with respect to Seylinco, S.A. For these reasons, it is impracticable to complete the preliminary results of this administrative review within the originally–specified time limit. Accordingly, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results of this administrative review until no later than December 19, 2008, which is 354 days from the last day of the anniversary month. We intend to issue the final results no later than 120 days after publication of the preliminary results notice. This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act. Dated: June 30, 2008. Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration. [FR Doc.
