Download as PDF rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with PROPOSALS Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 71 / Wednesday, April 15, 2009 / Notices Irrigation Ditch Lining (Code 428)— The title changed from ‘‘Irrigation Water Conveyance, Ditch and Canal Lining,’’ combining the three previous separate standards for Plain Concrete (A), Flexible Membrane (B), and Galvanized Steel (C). Criteria for Chemical Linings and references were added. 430 Irrigation Pipeline (Code 430)— The title was changed from ‘‘Irrigation Water Conveyance, Pipeline, (various),’’ combining six previous separate standards for Aluminum Tubing (AA), Nonreinforced Concrete (CC), HighPressure, Underground Plastic (DD), Low-Pressure, Underground Plastic (EE), Steel (FF), and Reinforced Plastic Mortar (GG). The standard for AsbestosCement Pipe (BB) was deleted. Criteria in NEH–636, Chapter 52 ‘‘Structural Design of Flexible Conduits’’ are referenced. Langelier Saturation Index equation and references were added. 436 Irrigation Reservoir (Code 436)— The titles were changed and standards combined for ‘‘Irrigation Regulating Reservoir’’ (552) and ‘‘Irrigation Storage Reservoir’’ (436). Considerations were expanded and references added. Surface Drain (Code 607)—The title was changed from ‘‘Surface Drainage, Field Ditch.’’ Criteria for capacity was added, considerations expanded, and references were added. Surface Drainage, Main or Lateral (Code 608)—The text was streamlined and references were added. Roof Runoff Structure (Code 558)—No significant changes are proposed to this practice standard. NRCS reviews standards periodically to ensure they are still current; this was the situation for this standard. Surface Roughening (Code 609)—No significant technical changes are proposed to this practice standard; however, significant edits and grammatical changes have been made. The Purposes section has been edited for clarity, and as a result, the number of purposes has been reduced. However, the intent of the edits was to exclude previous purposes, just merge existing ones into more clearly worded statements. In the criteria section, procedure type narratives were removed. In the considerations section, additional considerations were added to address emergency tillage, the initial tillage operation, and the direction of tillage. Section 343 of the Federal Agriculture Improvement and Reform Act of 1996, requires NRCS to make available for public review and comment all proposed revisions to conservation practice standards used to carry out the highly erodible land and wetland provisions of the law. For the next 30 VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:44 Apr 14, 2009 Jkt 217001 days, NRCS will receive comments relative to the proposed changes. Following that period, a determination will be made by NRCS regarding disposition of those comments, and a final determination of changes will be made. Signed in Washington, DC, on March 25, 2009.

The current deadline for the final results of this administrative review is May 7, 2009. Statutory Time Limits Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), requires the Department to issue the final results of an administrative review within 120 days of the publication of the preliminary results.

Extension of Time Limit for Final Results The Department requires additional time to complete this review because it conducted verifications after the Preliminary Results. The Department needs to allow time for parties to brief the issues, provide rebuttal comments, conduct a hearing, if requested, and for the Department to consider all the issues raised, including possible complex issues regarding factors of production and surrogate values. Consequently, it is not practicable to complete this review within the original 120-day time limit (i.e., by May 7, 2009).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On January 7, 2009, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on certain

cased pencils from the People's Republic of China, covering the period 
December 1, 2006 through November 30, 2007. See Certain Cased Pencils 
from the People's Republic of China; Preliminary Results and Partial 
Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 74 FR 673 
(January 7, 2009) (``Preliminary Results''). The current deadline for 
the final results of this administrative review is May 7, 2009.

Statutory Time Limits

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires the Department to issue the final results of an 
administrative review within 120 days of the publication of the 
preliminary results. 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 this deadline to a maximum of 180 days.

Extension of Time Limit for Final Results

    The Department requires additional time to complete this review 
because it conducted verifications after the Preliminary Results. The 
Department needs to allow time for parties to brief the issues, provide 
rebuttal comments, conduct a hearing, if requested, and for the 
Department to consider all the issues raised, including possible 
complex issues regarding factors of production and surrogate values. 
Consequently, it is not practicable to complete this review within the 
original 120-day time limit (i.e., by May 7, 2009). Therefore, the 
Department is extending the time limit for completion of the final 
results to not later than July 6, 2009, which is 180 days from the date 
of publication of the Preliminary Results, in accordance with section 
751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.
