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 VerDate Nov<24>2008 19:32 Sep 30, 2009 Jkt 217001 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. Dated: September 25, 2009. John M.

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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On June 24, 2005, the Department published in the Federal Register an antidumping duty order on chlorinated isos from Spain. See Chlorinated Isocyanurates from Spain: Notice of Antidumping Duty Order, 70 FR 36562 (June 24, 2005) (Chlorinated Isos Order). On July 30, 2008, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of the initiation of the antidumping duty administrative review of chlorinated isos from Spain for the period June 1, 2007 through May 31, 2008. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, Request for Revocation in Part, and Deferral of Administrative Review, 73 FR 44220 (July 30, 2008). The Department published the preliminary results of this review on May 27, 2009. See Preliminary Results. We invited parties to comment on our preliminary results of review. The respondent, Aragonesas Industrias y ´ Energıa S.A. (Aragonesas) submitted a case brief on July 6, 2009, and the petitioners, Clearon Corporation and Occidental Chemical Corporation (collectively, the petitioners), submitted a rebuttal brief on July 14, 2009. On July 23, 2009, the Department held a public hearing concerning the issues addressed by the respondent and petitioners in their briefs. Scope of Antidumping Duty Order The products covered by this order are chlorinated isocyanurates. Chlorinated isocyanurates are derivatives of cyanuric acid, described as chlorinated s–triazine triones. There are three primary chemical compositions of chlorinated isocyanurates: (1) trichloroisocyanuric acid (Cl3(NCO)3); (2) sodium dichloroisocyanurate (dihydrate) (NaCl2(NCO)3 2H2O); and (3) sodium dichloroisocyanurate (anhydrous) (NaCl2(NCO)3). Chlorinated isocyanurates are available in powder, granular, and tableted forms. The order covers all chlorinated isocyanurates. Chlorinated isocyanurates are currently classifiable under subheadings 2933.69.6015, 2933.69.6021, and 2933.69.6050 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). The tariff classification 2933.69.6015 covers sodium dichloroisocyanurates (anhydrous and dihydrate forms) and trichloroisocyanuric acid. The tariff classifications 2933.69.6021 and 2933.69.6050 represent basket categories that include chlorinated isoscyanurates and other compounds including an PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 unfused triazine ring. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of the order is dispositive.
