Prestressed Concrete Steel Wire Strand from the People's Republic of China: Correction to Notice of Initiation of Countervailing Duty Investigation, 38584-38585 [E9-18594]

Download as PDF 38584 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 148 / Tuesday, August 4, 2009 / Notices mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES may only cover an amount ranging from 50 to 90 percent of the company’s export performance up to 30 billion won. Hynix received a loan under this program during the POR and provided documentation (e.g. loan application, approval document, and loan agreement), as well as data regarding the loan amount and interest paid during the POR. See Hynix’s April 14, 2009, supplemental questionnaire response at 3 and 5. Upon examination of the documentation as well as the loan amount and interest paid during the POR, the Department preliminarily determines that there was no measurable benefit. Accordingly, it is unnecessary in this review for the Department to make a finding as to the countervailability of this program for this POR. We will include an examination of this program in a future administrative review. IV. Programs Previously Found Not to Have Been Used or Provided No Benefits We preliminarily determine that the following programs were not used during the POR: A. Reserve for Research and Human Resources Development (formerly Technological Development Reserve) (Article 9 of RSTA / formerly, Article 8 of TERCL) B. Tax Credit for Investment in Facilities for Productivity Enhancement (Article 24 of RSTA /Article 25 of TERCL) C. Tax Credit for Investment in Facilities for Special Purposes (Article 25 of RSTA) D. Reserve for Overseas Market Development (formerly, Article 17 of TERCL) E. Reserve for Export Loss (formerly, Article 16 of TERCL) F. Tax Exemption for Foreign Technicians (Article 18 of RSTA) G. Reduction of Tax Regarding the Movement of a Factory That Has Been Operated for More Than Five Years (Article 71 of RSTA) H. Tax Reductions or Exemption on Foreign Investments under Article 9 of the Foreign Investment Promotion Act (‘‘FIPA’’)/ FIPA (Formerly Foreign Capital Inducement Law) I. Duty Drawback on Non–Physically Incorporated Items and Excessive Loss Rates J. Export Insurance K. Electricity Discounts Under the RLA Program L. Import Duty Reduction for Cutting Edge Products M. System IC 2010 Project VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:11 Aug 03, 2009 Jkt 217001 See Hynix’s January 29, 2009, questionnaire response at 20 and the GOK’s January 29, 2009, questionnaire response at 22. In the first administrative review, the Department found that ‘‘any benefits provided to Hynix under the System IC 2010 Project are tied to non–subject merchandise’’ and, therefore, that ‘‘Hynix did not receive any countervailable benefits under this program during the POR,’’ in accordance with 19 CFR 351.525(b)(5). See Dynamic Random Access Memory Semiconductors from the Republic of Korea: Final Results of Countervailing Duty Administrative Review, 71 FR 14174 (March 21, 2006), and the accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum at 15. No new information has been provided with respect to this program. See Hynx’s April 14, 2009 supplemental questionnaire at 1. Therefore, we preliminarily find that Hynix did not receive any countervailable benefits from the System IC 2010 Project during the POR. Preliminary Results of Review In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4)(i), we calculated an individual subsidy rate for Hynix, the producer/exporter covered by this administrative review. We preliminarily determine that the total estimated net countervailable subsidy rate for Hynix for calendar year 2007 is 0.06 percent ad valorem, which is de minimis in accordance with 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1). Consequently, if these preliminary results are adopted in the final results of this review, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to liquidate shipments of DRAMs by Hynix entered or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption from January 1, 2007, through December 31, 2007, without regard to countervailing duties. See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1). We intend to issue these instructions 15 days after publication of the final results of this review. On October 3, 2008, the Department published a Federal Register notice that, inter alia, revoked this order, effective August 11, 2008. See Dynamic Random Access Memory Semiconductors From the Republic of Korea: Final Results of Sunset Review and Revocation of Order, 73 FR 57594 (October 3, 2008). As a result, CBP is no longer suspending liquidation for entries of subject merchandise occurring after the revocation. Therefore, there is no need to issue new cash deposit instructions in the final results of this administrative review.

ACTION: Notice; issuance of permit modification. SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given that National Marine Fisheries Service Southwest Fisheries Science Center has been issued a modification to scientific research Permit No. 1596–01. ADDRESSES: The modification and related documents are available for review upon written request or by appointment in the following offices: Permits, Conservation and Education Division, Office of Protected Resources, NMFS, 1315 East-West Highway, Room 13705, Silver Spring, MD 20910; phone (301)713–2289; fax (301)427–2521; Southwest Region, NMFS, 501 West Ocean Blvd., Suite 4200, Long Beach, CA 90802–4213; phone (562)980–4001; fax (562)980–4018. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Patrick Opay (301)713–2289. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On May 13, 2009, notice was published in the Federal Register (74 FR 22517) that a modification of Permit No. 1596–01 had been requested by the above-named organization. The requested modification has been granted under the authority of the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (ESA; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) and the regulations governing the taking, importing, and exporting of endangered and threatened species (50 CFR 222–226). The permit modification authorizes researchers to annually fat biopsy and ultrasound up to 38 leatherback sea turtles as part of a health and nutritional assessment of this species. It also VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:11 Aug 03, 2009 Jkt 217001 provides authority to close approach and attach VHR/TDR/sonic tag/GPS/ video camera units by suction cup on up to 20 leatherback sea turtles annually, and to later capture the same animals to remove the unit and then sample, tag, and attach another VHR/ TDR/sonic tag/GPS/video camera unit to the animals before release. Additionally, the permit modification authorizes researchers to annually attach a VHR/ TDR/sonic tag/GPS unit and tissue sample 20 leatherback sea turtles using a biopsy pole. The permit currently authorizes researchers to attach the unit or tissue sample 20 animals, not both. The number of leatherback sea turtles captured does not increase under the modification, but the mix of activities conducted on each animal does. The research may continue to occur in waters off the coast of the western United States through February 1, 2012. Issuance of this modification, as required by the ESA was based on a finding that such permit (1) was applied for in good faith, (2) will not operate to the disadvantage of such endangered or threatened species, and (3) is consistent with the purposes and policies set forth in section 2 of the ESA. Dated: July 29, 2009. P. Michael Payne, Chief, Permits, Conservation and Education Division, Office of Protected Resources, National Marine Fisheries Service. [FR Doc.

ACTION: Notice of Interim Patent Term Extension. SUMMARY: The United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued an order granting interim extension under 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5) for a one-year interim extension of the term of U.S. Patent No. 5,135,759. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mary C. Till by telephone at (571) 272– 7755; by mail marked to her attention and addressed to the Commissioner for Patents, Mail Stop Hatch-Waxman PTE, P.O. Box 1450, Alexandria, VA 22313– PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 38585 1450; by fax marked to her attention at (571) 273–7755, or by e-mail to Mary.Till@uspto.gov. Section 156 of Title 35, United States Code, generally provides that the term of a patent may be extended for a period of up to five years if the patent claims a product, or a method of making or using a product, that has been subject to certain defined regulatory review, and that the patent may be extended for interim periods of up to a year if the regulatory review is anticipated to extend beyond the expiration date of the patent. On June 8, 2009, the patent owner, the United States of America, as represented by the Secretary of Agriculture, timely filed an application under 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5) for an interim extension of the term of U.S. Patent No. 5,135,759. The patent claims the use of the medical device, MicroSort® Sperm Separation Technology. The application indicates, and the Food and Drug Administration has confirmed, that a Premarket Approval application (P090004) for the medical device, MicroSort® Sperm Separation Technology, has been filed by the licensee of the patent owner, Genetics & IVF Institute, and is currently undergoing regulatory review before the Food and Drug Administration for permission to market or use the product commercially. Review of the application indicates that except for permission to market or use the product commercially, the subject patent would be eligible for an extension of the patent term under 35 U.S.C. 156, and that the patent should be extended for an additional one year as required by 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5)(B). Because it is apparent that the regulatory review period will continue beyond the original expiration date of the patent (August 4, 2009), an interim extension of the patent term under 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5) is appropriate. An interim extension under 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5) of the term of U.S. Patent No. 5,135,759 is granted for a period of one year from the original expiration date of the patent, i.e., until August 4, 2010. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Dated: July 28, 2009. John J. Doll, Acting Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Acting Director of the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
