L. 89–651, as amended by Pub. L. 106– 36; 80 Stat. 897; 15 CFR part 301), we invite comments on the question of whether instruments of equivalent scientific value, for the purposes for which the instruments shown below are intended to be used, are being manufactured in the United States. Comments must comply with 15 CFR 301.5(a)(3) and (4) of the regulations and be postmarked on or before November 30, 2009. Address written comments to Statutory Import Programs Staff, Room 3720, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, DC 20230.

Applicant: Fermi Research Alliance LLC–Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, Kirk Road & Wilson Street, P.O. Box 500, Batavia, IL 60510. Instrument: Wavelength Shifting Fiber. Manufacturer: Kuraray Co., Ltd.; Japan. Intended Use: This instrument will be used to observe the transmutation of muon neutrinos to electron neutrinos as they travel from their production point through the earth to a 20 kiloton detector. The instrument allows the light generated by neutrino interactions in the experiment’s 18 kilotons of liquid scintillator to be captured, wavelength shifted and transmitted to photodetectors. The fibers must be .7mm in diameter and 32 meters in length. Further, the light generated in the fiber must not suffer unacceptable attenuation in traveling down 16–20 m of the WLS fiber. As such, a pertinent characteristic of this instrument is that it have an attenuation length of >20m. Justification for Duty-Free Entry: There are instruments of the same general category being manufactured within the United States, but they could not be utilized for the purposes described above. Application accepted by Commissioner of Customs: October 9, 2009. Docket Number: 09–063. Applicant: Argonne National Laboratory, 9700 S. Cass Ave., Lemont, IL 60439. Instrument: CEOS Spherical Aberration Corrector. Manufacturer: CEOS Corrected Electron Optical Systems, GmbH; Germany. Intended Use: This instrument will be installed on a transmission electron microscope and used for the study of nanoscale magnetic and ferroelectric materials. The aberration corrector greatly enhances the spatial resolution with which the experiments described above can be carried out. All experiments will be carried out in Lorentz mode, and will include imaging and electron diffraction combined with certain in-situ techniques. A pertinent characteristic of this instrument is that it must be capable of compensating completing the spherical aberration of the low field objective lens on the 2100F TEM to which it will be attached. The spherical aberration coefficient of this lens is 200 mm. In addition the CEOS aberration corrector can compensate this value of spherical aberration while only increasing the chromatic aberration by approximately 20%. Justification for Duty-Free Entry: There are no instruments of the same general category being manufactured within the United States.

The ASF is an option for grantees for the establishment or reorganization of general-purpose zones and can permit significantly greater flexibility in the designation of new ‘‘usage-driven’’ FTZ sites for operators/users located within a grantee’s ‘‘service area’’ in the context of the Board’s standard 2,000-acre activation limit for a general-purpose zone project. The application was submitted pursuant to the provisions of the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a–81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR part 400). It was formally filed on November 3, 2009. The grantee’s proposed service area under the ASF would be Albany, Columbia, Greene, Fulton, Montgomery, Rensselaer, Saratoga, Schenectady, Warren and Washington counties, New York. If approved, the grantee would be able to serve sites throughout the service area based on companies’ needs for FTZ designation. The proposed service area is adjacent to or within the Albany Customs and Border Protection port of entry. FTZ 121 was approved by the Board on July 18, 1985 (Board Order 307, 50 FR 30986, July 31, 1985) and expanded on September 25, 1997 (Board Order 922, 62 FR 51830, October 3, 1997). The applicant is requesting to include its current sites as ‘‘magnet sites’’: Site 1, Northeastern Industrial Park, expanding the site from 20 acres to 514 acres; Site 2, Rotterdam Industrial Park, expanding the site from 7 acres to 225 acres; and E:\FR\FM\10NON1.SGM 10NON1
