SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract NOAA provides educators an opportunity to gain first-hand experience with field research activities through the Teacher at Sea Program. Through this program, educators spend up to three weeks at sea on a NOAA research vessel, participating in an ongoing research project with NOAA scientists. Once educators are selected and participate on a cruise, they write a report detailing the events of the cruise and ideas for classroom activities based on what they learned while at sea. These materials are then made available to other educators so they may benefit from the experience, without actually going to sea themselves. In order to better serve the participants, the Teacher at Sea Program would like to survey the teacher participants on their experience before, during, and after they return from sea. The survey will collect data only from teacher participants, not from applicants. II. Method of Collection Forms can be completed on-line, printed, and mailed.

Background On April 27, 2009, the Department of Commerce (the Department) issued the preliminary results of several new shipper reviews of fresh garlic from the People’s Republic of China, covering the periods of review of November 1, 2007 through April 30, 2008 for three companies, and November 1, 2007 through June 9, 2008, for three companies. See Fresh Garlic from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:16 Jun 03, 2009 Jkt 217001 Results of New Shipper Reviews, 74 FR 20452 (May 4, 2009). Statutory Time Limits Section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), provides that the Department will issue the preliminary results of a new shipper review of an antidumping duty order within 180 days after the day on which the review was initiated, and final results of review within 90 days after the date on which the preliminary results were issued (19 CFR 351.214(i)(1)). However, if the Secretary concludes that a new shipper review is extraordinarily complicated, the Secretary may extend the 180-day period to 300 days, and may extend the 90-day period to 150 days. See 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2). Extension of Time Limit for Final Results The Department determines that these new shipper reviews involve extraordinarily complicated methodological issues, including the continued evaluation of the bona fideU nature of each company’s sales. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i)(2), the Department is extending the time limit for these final results which is 150 days from the date on which the preliminary results were issued, until September 24, 2009. We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) and 777(i) of the Act. Dated: May 29, 2009. John M.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On March 9, 2009, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) published notices for the preliminary results of the administrative reviews of the antidumping duty orders on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (‘‘Vietnam’’), covering the period February 1, 2007, through January 31, 2008. See Third Administrative Review of Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results and Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 74 FR 10026 (March 9, 2009); and Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Preliminary Results, Preliminary Partial Rescission and Request for Revocation, in Part, of the Third Administrative Review, 74 FR 10009 (March 9, 2009). The final results for these administrative reviews are currently due no later than July 7, 2009, the next business day after 120 days from the date of publication of the preliminary results of review. Extension of Time Limit for the Final Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘Act’’), requires the Department issue the final results of an administrative review within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. If it is not practicable to complete the review within that time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the deadline for the final results to a maximum of 180 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. With respect to shrimp from the PRC, the Department requires additional time to properly consider the numerous and complex issues raised by interested parties in their case briefs, including the surrogate country selection. Similarly, with respect to shrimp from Vietnam, the Department requires additional time to consider the issues raised in case briefs from multiple interested parties, including the separate–rate status for numerous non–mandatory companies, and to conduct a public hearing requested by multiple interested parties. Thus, it is not practicable to complete these reviews within the original time E:\FR\FM\04JNN1.SGM 04JNN1
