ACTION: Notice; exception to final guidelines. SUMMARY: The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, National Ocean Service publishes this notice of exception to the Final Guidelines for the Coastal and Estuarine Land Conservation Program (CELCP). For those grants issued in fiscal year 2006 that are due to expire on September 30, 2009, NOAA may extend the financial assistance award period for up to 6 additional months, providing for a potential maximum award duration of three years and six months. DATES: The provisions in this notice are implemented as of September 30, 2009. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For further information, contact: Elaine Vaudreuil, 301–713–3155 ext. 103, Elaine.Vaudreuil@noaa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Coastal and Estuarine Land Conservation Program was established pursuant to Public Law 107–77 for the purpose of protecting important coastal and estuarine areas that have significant conservation, recreation, ecological, PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 50773 historical, or aesthetic values, or that are threatened by conversion from their natural or recreational state to other uses. In accordance with Public Law 107–77, CELCP published in the Federal Register on June 17, 2003 (68 FR 35860) program guidelines delineating the criteria for grant awards. The Final Guidelines for CELCP outline a planning process for states to identify the conservation needs and priorities within each state; provide the information necessary for eligible coastal states to develop land conservation plans and nominate projects to a national competitive selection process; and delineate the criteria for grant awards. In FY 2006, the conference report accompanying the Science, State, Justice, Commerce, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act of 2006 (Pub. L. 109–108) directed funds for specific land conservation projects under the CELCP. Consistent with the criteria for grants awards in the Final Guidelines, the standard financial assistance award period for these awards is 18 months, which can be extended an additional 18 months if circumstances warrant, but may not exceed 3 years. Several FY 2006 awards, whose award period is set to expire on September 30, 2009, have experienced unforeseen circumstances late in the process that precluded their completion within the 3-year timeframe provided in the CELCP Guidelines. In order to ensure that projects can be completed and funds expended for their intended purpose, NOAA is extending the maximum potential award duration for those FY 2006 grants in an open status on September 29, 2009, from three years to three years and six months, ending no later than March 31, 2010. Award recipients who wish to avail themselves of the extension to the award period should contact their Program Officer by September 30, 2009 to inform them of their intent to seek an extension. This extension applies to only FY 2006 CELCP awards in an open status on September 29, 2009. This notice does not modify any provision in the Final Guidelines for the Coastal and Estuarine Land Conservation Program published on June 17, 2003. Classification Executive Order 12866 This notice has been determined to be not significant for purposes of Executive Order 12866. E:\FR\FM\01OCN1.SGM 01OCN1

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b), an interested party as 
defined by section 771(9) of the Act may request in writing that the 
Secretary conduct an administrative review. For both antidumping and 
countervailing duty reviews, the interested party must specify the 
individual producers or exporters covered by an antidumping finding or 
an antidumping or countervailing duty order or suspension agreement for 
which it is requesting a review. In addition, a domestic interested 
party or an interested party described in section 771(9)(B) of the Act 
must state why it desires the Secretary to review those particular 
producers or exporters.\2\ If the interested party intends for the 
Secretary to review sales of merchandise by an exporter (or a producer 
if that producer also exports merchandise from other suppliers) which 
were produced in more than one country of origin and each country of 
origin is subject to a separate order, then the interested party must 
state specifically, on an order-by-order basis,

[[Page 50773]]

which exporter(s) the request is intended to cover.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ If the review request involves a non-market economy and the 
parties subject to the review request do not qualify for separate 
rates, all other exporters of subject merchandise from the non-
market economy country who do not have a separate rate will be 
covered by the review as part of the single entity of which the 
named firms are a part.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Please note that, for any party the Department was unable to locate 
in prior segments, the Department will not accept a request for an 
administrative review of that party absent new information as to the 
party's location. Moreover, if the interested party who files a request 
for review is unable to locate the producer or exporter for which it 
requested the review, the interested party must provide an explanation 
of the attempts it made to locate the producer or exporter at the same 
time it files its request for review, in order for the Secretary to 
determine if the interested party's attempts were reasonable, pursuant 
to 19 CFR 351.303(f)(3)(ii).
    As explained in Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003), the 
Department has clarified its practice with respect to the collection of 
final antidumping duties on imports of merchandise where intermediate 
firms are involved. The public should be aware of this clarification in 
determining whether to request an administrative review of merchandise 
subject to antidumping findings and orders. See also the Import 
Administration Web site at http://ia.ita.doc.gov.
    Six copies of the request should be submitted to the Assistant 
Secretary for Import Administration, International Trade 
Administration, Room 1870, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street & 
Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230. The Department also 
asks parties to serve a copy of their requests to the Office of 
Antidumping/Countervailing Operations, Attention: Sheila Forbes, in 
room 3065 of the main Commerce Building. Further, in accordance with 19 
CFR 351.303(f)(l)(i), a copy of each request must be served on every 
party on the Department's service list.
    The Department will publish in the Federal Register a notice of 
``Initiation of Administrative Review of Antidumping or Countervailing 
Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation'' for requests received 
by the last day of October 2009. If the Department does not receive, by 
the last day of October 2009, a request for review of entries covered 
by an order, finding, or suspended investigation listed in this notice 
and for the period identified above, the Department will instruct the 
CBP to assess antidumping or countervailing duties on those entries at 
a rate equal to the cash deposit of (or bond for) estimated antidumping 
or countervailing duties required on those entries at the time of 
entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption and to continue to 
collect the cash deposit previously ordered.
    For the first administrative review of any order, there will be no 
assessment of antidumping or countervailing duties on entries of 
subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption during the relevant provisional-measures ``gap'' period, of 
the order, if such a gap period is applicable to the period of review.
    This notice is not required by statute but is published as a 
service to the international trading community.
