DATES: Effective Date: December 17, 2008. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Lilit Astvatsatrian, AD/CVD Operations, Office 8, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–6412. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On July 26, 2007, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) published the initiation of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on folding metal tables and chairs from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’). See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 72 FR 41057 (July 26, 2007). On July 14, 2008, the Department published the preliminary results of review. See Folding Metal Tables and Chairs from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Intent to Revoke in Part, 73 FR 40285 (July 14, 2008). This review covers the period June 1, 2006, through May 31, 2007. pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES Extension of Time Limit for Final Results of Review Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘Act’’), the Department shall make a final determination in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. The Act further provides that the Department may extend that 120-day period to 180 days after the preliminary results if it determines it is not practicable to complete the review within the foregoing time period. On November 10, 2008, the Department published a notice extending the time limit until December 11, 2008, for the final results of this administrative review. See Folding Metal Tables and Chairs from the VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:58 Dec 16, 2008 Jkt 217001 People’s Republic of China: Extension of Time Limit for the Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 73 FR 66595 (November 10, 2008). The Department now finds that it is not practicable to complete the final results of the administrative review of folding metal tables and chairs from the PRC within the current deadline due to complex issues the parties have raised related to revocation, market-economy purchase prices, and surrogate financial statements. We find that additional time is needed to complete these final results. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending by 30 days the time period for completion of the final results of this review. This extension makes these final results due 180 days after the date on which the preliminary results were published, i.e., January 10, 2009. However, because January 10, 2009, falls on a weekend, the actual due date will be the first business day following the Search Term Begin weekend, i.e., January 12, 2009. This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act. Dated: December 11, 2008.

Abstract The Interagency Electronic Reporting System (IERS) and its data entry component, eLandings, was implemented for use in the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands (BSAI) Crab Rationalization Program (CR) crab fisheries, commercial harvest and production of groundfish (including rockfish), and Pacific halibut. Once implementation is complete, eLandings will allow processors and others to make all three species’ landings reports with a single reporting system to NMFS, the International Pacific Halibut Commission (IPHC), and Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G). Using eLandings removes reporting duplications, and will make recordkeeping and reporting simpler. Additional benefits of the eLandings system include: • Immediate verification of permits and vessel identification; • Timely catch reports for management agency use; • Options for processors to import or export catch and production information; and • Significant reduction in data entry by management agencies and processors. II. Method of Collection Methods of submittal include e-mail of electronic forms, and mail and facsimile transmission of paper forms. Clients with no Web access, such as the at-sea fleet, will use eLandings client desktop software and submit landing reports as e-mail attachments. The vessels use satellite communications which may or may not include telephone, Internet, text messaging, email, and e-mail attachment capabilities. III. Data OMB Control Number: 0648–0515.

Bearden, (907) 586– 7008 or patsy.bearden@noaa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract The American Fisheries Act (AFA) of 1998 established an allocation program for the pollock fishery of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Management Area (BSAI). The purposes of the AFA are to tighten U.S. ownership standards that had been exploited under the AntiReflagging Act; to provide Alaska’s BSAI pollock fleet the opportunity to conduct their fishery in a more rational manner; and to protect non-AFA participants in other fisheries. Reduced bycatch, higher utilization rates, increased economic returns, and improved safety are among the direct benefits of the AFA. Under the AFA, only vessels and processors that met specific qualifying criteria are eligible to fish for and process pollock in the BSAI. The BSAI pollock quota is sub-allocated to groups of vessel owners who form fishing vessel cooperatives under the AFA. All pollock vessels and processors are required to have a valid AFA permit onboard the vessel or at the processing plant. The AFA vessel and processor permits have no expiration date and will remain valid indefinitely unless revoked by National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS). With the exceptions of applications for inshore vessel cooperatives and for replacement vessels, the AFA permit program had a one-time application deadline of December 1, 2000. Inshore catcher vessel cooperatives must apply for an AFA permit annually, by December 1 for the following fishing year. Applications to replace lost or destroyed AFA vessels may be submitted to NMFS at any time. II. Method of Collection Respondents have a choice of either electronic or paper forms.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    The Interagency Electronic Reporting System (IERS) and its data 
entry component, eLandings, was implemented for use in the Bering Sea 
and Aleutian Islands (BSAI) Crab Rationalization Program (CR) crab

rockfish), and Pacific halibut. Once implementation is complete, 
eLandings will allow processors and others to make all three species'

International Pacific Halibut Commission (IPHC), and Alaska Department 
of Fish and Game (ADF&G).
    Using eLandings removes reporting duplications, and will make 
recordkeeping and reporting simpler. Additional benefits of the 
eLandings system include:
     Immediate verification of permits and vessel 
identification;

and processors.

II. Method of Collection

satellite communications which may or may not include telephone, 
Internet, text messaging, e-mail, and e-mail attachment capabilities.
