Narrow Woven Ribbons With Woven Selvedge From the People's Republic of China: Postponement of Preliminary Determination in the Countervailing Duty Investigation, 46978 [E9-22046]

Download as PDF 46978 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 176 / Monday, September 14, 2009 / Notices Laboratory feeding experiments would be conducted on American lobster to determine the trophic levels from which they feed. The isotope ?948;15N would be measured, with the theoretical basis that the higher the trophic level an animal feeds, the higher the level of the isotope. Exemptions from lobster restrictions at §§ 697.7(c)(1)(xxiii) and 697.17(a) are necessary to collect specimens for laboratory research. Samples for the laboratory research would be collected aboard the same seven fishing vessels participating in the Otter Trawl study fleet, which intend to fish on GB from the date of issuance through April 2010, with a minimum of two trips per month and an average trip duration of 7 days. All vessels would utilize otter trawl gear, with gear configuration and mesh size dictated by current fishery regulations. Based on preliminary review of this project, and in accordance with NOAA Administrative Order 216–6, a Categorical Exclusion from requirements to prepare either an Environmental Impact Statement or an Environmental Assessment under the National Environmental Policy Act appears to be justified. The applicant may request minor modifications and extensions to the EFP throughout the year. EFP modifications and extensions may be granted without further notice if they are deemed essential to facilitate completion of the proposed research and have minimal impacts that do not change the scope or impact of the initially approved EFP request.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On August 6, 2009, the Department of Commerce (the ``Department'') 
initiated an investigation of narrow woven ribbons with woven selvedge 
from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''). See Narrow Woven Ribbons 
With Woven Selvedge From the People's Republic of China: Initiation of 
Countervailing Duty Investigation, 74 FR 39298 (August 6, 2009). 
Currently, the preliminary determination is due no later than October 
2, 2009.

Postponement of Due Date for Preliminary Determination

    Under section 703(c)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(the ``Act''), the Department may extend the period for reaching a 
preliminary determination in a countervailing duty investigation until 
no later than the 130th day after the date on which the investigation 
is initiated, if the Department determines that the parties are 
cooperating and the case is extraordinarily complicated. The Department 
finds that the instant case is extraordinarily complicated by reason of 
the number and complexity of the alleged countervailable subsidy 
practices, the need to determine the extent to which particular 
countervailable subsidies are used by individual manufacturers, 
producers, and exporters, and the number of firms whose activities must 
be investigated. Accordingly, we are fully extending the due date for 
the preliminary determination to no later than 130 days after the day 
on which the investigation was initiated (i.e., December 6, 2009). As 
December 6, 2009, is a Sunday, we will issue the preliminary 
determination no later than the next business day (i.e., December 7, 
2009).
    This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 703(c)(2) 
of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(f)(1).
