E9–4470 Filed 3–2–09; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 3510–DS–P International Trade Administration mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), requires the Department to issue 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 and a final determination within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. If it is not practicable to complete the review within the time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend these deadlines to a maximum of 365 days and 180 days, respectively. The review covers four manufacturers/exporters: JFE Steel Corporation; Nippon Steel Corporation; NKK Tubes; and Sumitomo Metal Industries, Ltd. These four manufacturer/exporters submitted letters to the Department certifying that they made no shipments or entries for consumption in the United States of the subject merchandise during the period of review (POR). In response to the Department’s query to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), CBP data showed POR entries for consumption of subject merchandise that were manufactured by one of the respondent companies. The information regarding these entries has been placed on the record of this review under the terms of the administrative protective order. The Department is soliciting additional information and comments regarding these entries. Because the Department requires additional time to analyze the additional information and comments, it is not practicable to complete this review within the original time limit (i.e., March 2, 2009). Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results by 120 days to June 30, 2009, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and section 351.213(h)(2) of the Department’s regulations. Pursuant to Section 6(c) of the Educational, Scientific and Cultural Materials Importation Act of 1966 (Pub. L. 89–651, as amended by Pub. L. 106– 36; 80 Stat. 897; 15 CFR part 301), we invite comments on the question of whether instruments of equivalent scientific value, for the purposes for which the instruments shown below are intended to be used, are being manufactured in the United States. Comments must comply with 15 CFR 301.5(a)(3) and (4) of the regulations and be postmarked on or before March 23, 2009. Address written comments to Statutory Import Programs Staff, Room 3720, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, D.C. 20230. Applications may be examined between 8:30 A.M. and 5:00 P.M. at the U.S. Department of Commerce in Room 3720. Docket Number: 08–061. Applicant: California Association for Research in Astronomy dba W.M. Keck Observatory, 65–1120 Mamalahoa Highway, Kamuela, HI 96743. Instrument: Laser Launch Telescope Assembly (LTA). Manufacturer: Galileo Avionica, Italy. Intended Use: The LTA will be used as part of a Laser Guide Star Adaptive Optics System, which will measure and correct for the turbulence in the earth’s atmosphere that causes a blurring of images or the ‘‘twinkling’’ of stars as viewed at nighttime. The LTA will act as a projection system to launch a laser beam onto a layer of sodium atoms in the mesosphere, around 90 km above the earth’s surface, to provide a high quality ‘‘artificial star’’ in the atmosphere that will be used as a reference in measuring and correcting for the blurring effect. Justification for Duty–Free Entry: No US–manufactured instruments in the same general category as the foreign instrument for the intended use.
