FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Tammy Adams or Carrie Hubard, (301)713–2289. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The subject amendment to Permit No. 775– 1875 is requested under the authority of the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972, as amended (16 U.S.C. 1361 et seq.), and the regulations governing the taking and importing of marine mammals (50 CFR part 216). Permit No. 775–1875, issued on January 16, 2008 (73 FR 4846), authorizes the permit holder to conduct research related to stock assessments on seven species of baleen whales, twentyfive species or stocks of odontocetes, and four species of pinnipeds. Permitted research on pinnipeds includes aerial and vessel surveys, capture for collection of biological samples, and harassment incidental to research and collection of scat. The permit holder is requesting the permit be amended to include authorization for harassment of additional harbor seals (Phoca vitulina) and gray seals (Halichoerus grypus) incidental to scat collection, and collection of additional harbor seal pup carcasses found on rookeries and haulouts. The increases are necessary due to the rapidly increasing seal populations at all major haulouts, which has resulted in researchers encountering more seals than anticipated when the original permit was requested in 2006. The amendment does not represent a change in the manner in which the research is conducted, including location, frequency or duration of research activities. The amendment would be valid for the duration of the permit, which expires on January 15, 2013. In compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), an environmental assessment (EA) was prepared to examine whether significant environmental impacts could result from issuance of Permit No. 775–1875. Based on the analyses in the EA, NMFS determined that issuance of the permit amendment would not significantly impact the quality of the human environment and that preparation of an environmental impact statement is not required. The EA is available upon request. Concurrent with the publication of this notice in the Federal Register, VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:39 Apr 13, 2009 Jkt 217001 NMFS is forwarding copies of this application to the Marine Mammal Commission and its Committee of Scientific Advisors. Dated: April 7, 2009. Tammy C. Adams, Acting Chief, Permits, Conservation and Education Division, Office of Protected Resources, National Marine Fisheries Service. [FR Doc.

Dynamic Random Access Memory Semiconductors from the Republic of 
Korea: Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Review

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

EFFECTIVE DATE: April 14, 2009.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Shane Subler at (202) 482-0189 or 
David Neubacher at (202) 482-5823; AD/CVD Operations, Office 1, Import 
Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On September 30, 2008, the Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') published a notice of initiation of administrative review 
of the countervailing duty order on dynamic random access memory 
semiconductors from the Republic of Korea, covering the period January 
1, 2007 through December 31, 2007. See Initiation of Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation 
in Part, 73 FR 56795 (September 30, 2008). On February 17, 2009, the 
petitioner, Micron Technology, Inc., alleged that the respondent, Hynix 
Semiconductor, Inc., received new subsidies.

Statutory Time Limits

    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 the 
final results of review within 120 days after the date on which the 
preliminary results are published. 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 these deadlines to a maximum of 365 
days and 180 days, respectively.

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results

    This administrative review is extraordinarily complicated due to 
the complexity of the countervailable subsidy practices found in the 
investigation and the new subsidy allegations. Because the Department 
requires additional time to review, analyze, and possibly verify the 
information, and to issue additional supplemental questionnaires, if 
necessary, it is not practicable to complete this review within the 
original time limit (i.e., by May 3, 2009). Therefore, the Department 
is extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results 
by 90 days to not later than August 1, 2009, in accordance with section 
751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. August 1, 2009, however, falls on a Saturday. 
The Department's long-standing practice is to issue a determination on 
the next business day when the statutory deadline falls on a weekend, 
federal holiday, or any other day when the Department is closed. See 
Notice of Clarification: Application of ``Next Business Day'' Rule for 
Administrative Determination Deadlines Pursuant to the Tariff Act of 
1930, As Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005). Accordingly, the deadline 
for completion of the preliminary results is now no later than Monday, 
August 3, 2009.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
section 751(a)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: April 8, 2009.

Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Operations.
