Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 117 / Friday, June 19, 2009 / Notices requests for review, this review is rescinded with respect to Huatian and True Potential. Intent To Rescind Review in Part On March 4, 2009, New-Tec submitted a certification of no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States. We have not received comments on New-Tec’s submission. We made inquires with CBP as to whether any shipments were entered with respect to New-Tec during the POR. See message number 9120201 dated April 21, 2009. We received no response to that inquiry. We examined CBP information used in the selection of the mandatory respondents to further confirm no shipments by New-Tec during the POR. See ‘‘Letter from Robert James to All Interested Parties’’ dated February 9, 2009, containing CBP data on all entries of hand trucks and certain parts thereof during the POR. Based on the above, we preliminarily find that New-Tec had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR, and we intend to rescind the review with respect to New-Tec pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3). Interested parties may submit comments on the Department’s intent to rescind with respect to New-Tec no later than 30 days after the date of publication of this preliminary notice. The Department will issue the final notice, which will include the results of its analysis of issues raised in any such comments, in the preliminary results of the review. mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES Since Hardware Because the Department is rescinding the review with respect to Huatian and True-Potential, and because the Department intends to rescind the review with respect to New-Tec, the Department has decided to make Since Hardware the mandatory respondent in this review. Since Hardware was issued a complete questionnaire to respond to on May 5, 2009. On May 26, 2009, Since Hardware entered its notice of appearance in this segment of the proceeding. The Department will issue appropriate assessment instructions regarding the rescinded companies directly to U.S. Bureau of Customs and Border Protection. Extension of Preliminary Results The Department has determined that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results by the current 245day deadline of September 2, 2009. The Department selected Since Hardware as a mandatory respondent on May 5, 2009, four days after petitioners withdrew their request for a review of VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:28 Jun 18, 2009 Jkt 217001 the two previously-selected mandatory respondents Huatian and True Potential. See Memorandum to the File, ‘‘Re: Selection of New Mandatory Respondent,’’ dated May 5, 2009. Because May 5, 2009 was more than three months subsequent to the initiation of this review, we will need additional time to analyze Since Hardware’s response and complete the antidumping calculation. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2), the Department is extending the time limit for the preliminary results by 120 days to December 31, 2009. Notification to Importers This notice serves as a reminder to importers of their responsibility under section 351.402(f) of the Department’s regulations to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary’s assumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. Notification Regarding APOs This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with section 351.305(a)(3) of the Department’s regulations. Timely written notification of the return/ destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation. This notice is issued and published in accordance with section 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4) of the Department’s regulations. Dated: June 12, 2009. John M.

DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE Kate Swails or Tammy Adams, (301) 713– 2289. [C–570–940] FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: The subject amendment to Permit No. 1032– 1917 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. 1032–1917, issued on September 4, 2007 (72 FR 51621), authorizes the permit holder to continue long-term studies of the Weddell seal (Leptonychotes weddellii) population in the Erebus Bay, McMurdo Sound, Ross Sea, and White Island areas of Antarctica. Up to 325 adults and 800 pups may be captured annually. Animals may be weighed, tissued sampled, flipper tagged, and released. Annually up to 2000 Weddell, 50 crabeater (Lobodon carcinophagus), and 50 leopard (Hydrurga leptonyx) seals may be incidentally disturbed as a result of the research activities. The permit authorizes up to 4 (2 adults and 2 pups) Weddell seal research-related mortalities annually. The permit holder is requesting the permit be amended to include authorization for use of a small temperature logging tag on pups. The additional tag would be used to measure the amount of time pups spend in the water. This information would be used as part of the mass dynamics studies. In compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), an initial determination has been made that the activity proposed is categorically excluded from the requirement to prepare an environmental assessment or environmental impact statement.
