We intend to make our decision regarding respondent selection within 20 days of publication of this Federal Register notice. The Department invites comments regarding the CBP data and respondent selection within seven calendar days of publication of this Federal Register notice. Distribution of Copies of the Petition In accordance with section 702(b)(4)(A)(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.202(f), a copy of the public version of the Petition has been provided to the representatives of the Government of the PRC. Because of the particularly large number of producers/exporters identified in the Petition, the Department considers the service of the public version of the Petition to the foreign producers/exporters satisfied by the delivery of the public version to the Government of the PRC, consistent with 19 CFR 351.203(c)(2). ITC Notification We have notified the ITC of our initiation, as required by section 702(d) of the Act. Preliminary Determination by the ITC The ITC will preliminarily determine, within 45 days after the date on which the Petition is filed, whether there is a reasonable indication that imports of subsidized seamless pipe from the PRC are causing material injury, or threatening to cause material injury, to a U.S. industry. See section 703(a)(2) of the Act. A negative ITC determination will result in the investigation being terminated; otherwise, the investigation will proceed according to statutory and regulatory time limits.

Over the course of five years, up to twenty animals would be captured, flipper tagged, anesthetized, and equipped with a backpack blood oxygen recorder during foraging trips to sea. Animals would be recaptured after the foraging trip to remove the recorders. Research would occur on San Nicolas Island off the coast of California. Annually, up to 6000 California sea lions, 500 harbor seals (Phoca vitulina), 1000 northern elephant seals (Mirounga angustirostris), and 150 northern fur seals (Callorhinus ursinus) may be incidentally harassed during research.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On July 30, 2008, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
initiated the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on 
tapered roller bearings and parts thereof, finished or unfinished 
(``TRBs''), from the People's Republic of China (``PRC'') 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). On July 8, 2009, the Department published its preliminary 
results on TRBs from the PRC. See Tapered Roller Bearings and Parts 
Thereof, Finished or Unfinished, from the People's Republic of China: 
Preliminary Results of the 2007 2008 Administrative Review of the 
Antidumping Duty Order, 74 FR 32539 (July 8, 2009). The final results 
of this administrative review are currently due no later than November 
5, 2009.

Extension of Time Limit for Final Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires the Department to issue the final results in an 
administrative review within 120 days after the date on which the 
preliminary results are published. However, if it is not practicable to 
complete the review within this time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of 
the Act allows the Department to extend the time period to a maximum of 
180 days.
    We determine that it is not practicable to complete the final 
results of this review within the original time limit

[[Page 52949]]

because the Department requires additional time to analyze issues 
raised in parties' briefs and rebuttal briefs which were also discussed 
in meetings with counsel for the parties, such as, surrogate values and 
third-country processing. Therefore, given the complexity of issues in 
this case, we are extending the time limit for completion of the final 
results by 30 days.
    An extension of 30 days from the current deadline of November 5, 
2009, would result in a new deadline of December 5, 2009. However, 
since December 5, 2009, falls on a Saturday, a non-business day, the 
final results will now be due no later than December 7, 2009, the next 
business day.
    This notice is published pursuant to sections 751(a) and 777(i) of 
the Act.

    Dated: October 8, 2009.

Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Operations.
