Background On September 30, 2008, the U.S. Department of Commerce (Department) published a notice of initiation of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on corrosion– resistant carbon steel flat products from Korea, covering the period August 1, 2007, to July 31, 2008. See Initiation of PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 73 FR 56794, 56796 (September 30, 2008). On September 8, 2009, the Department published the preliminary results of this review. See Certain Corrosion–Resistant Carbon Steel Flat Products from the Republic of Korea: Notice of Preliminary Results of the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 74 FR 46110 (September 8, 2009). The final results of this review are currently due no later than January 6, 2010. Extension of Time Limit of the Final Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (Act), requires the Department to issue the final results of a 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 that time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the final results to a maximum of 180 days. See also 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2). We determine that it is not practicable to complete the final results of this review within the original time limit because an issue concerning of application of quarterly costs in this case arose late in the review and requires additional time for analyses of certain information. Therefore, the Department is fully extending the time limit for the final results. The final results are now due not later than March 7, 2010. As that day falls on a Sunday, the final results are due no later than March 8, 2010. See Notice of Clarification: Application of ‘‘Next Business Day’’ Rule for Administrative Determination Deadlines Pursuant of the Tariff Act of 1930, As Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005). This extension is in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2). This notice is published pursuant to section 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: November 6, 2009. Edward G. Yang, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations. [FR Doc.

Annual Survey of Manufactures

    The Annual Survey of Manufactures collects industry statistics, 
such as total value of shipments, employment, payroll, workers' hours, 
inventories, capital expenditures, cost of materials consumed, 
supplemental labor costs, etc. This is a sample survey covering all 
manufacturing industries including data on plants under construction 
but not yet in operation.

Business R&D and Innovation Survey

    The Business R&D and Innovation Survey (BRDIS) measures annual 
spending on R&D and innovative activities by U.S. businesses. This 
survey replaces the Survey of Industrial Research and Development in 
2008. The BRDIS collects global as well as domestic R&D spending, more 
detailed information about the R&D workforce, and information regarding 
innovation and intellectual property. The Census Bureau collects and 
compiles this information in accordance with a joint project agreement 
between the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Census Bureau. 
The NSF publishes the results in its publication series. Pursuant to 
title 13 of the U.S.C., this is a mandatory data collection.

Manufacturers' Unfilled Orders Survey

    The Manufacturers' Unfilled Orders Survey will collect data on 
manufacturing sales and unfilled orders in order to provide annual 
benchmarks for unfilled orders for the monthly Manufacturers' 
Shipments, Inventories, and Orders (M3) survey. The annual benchmarks 
for the shipments and inventory data in the Manufacturers' Unfilled 
Orders Survey are provided by the Annual Survey of Manufactures (ASM). 
The Manufacturers' Unfilled Orders Survey data will also be used by the 
Census Bureau to determine whether it is necessary to collect unfilled 
orders data for specific industries on a monthly basis; some industries 
are not requested to provide unfilled orders data on the M3 Survey.
    Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person is required 
to respond to, nor shall a person be subject to a penalty for failure 
to comply with, a collection of information subject to the requirements 
of the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) unless that collection of 
information displays a current, valid Office of Management and Budget 
(OMB) control number. In accordance with the PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501-3520, 
the OMB approved the 2008 Annual Surveys under the following OMB 
control numbers: Current Industrial Reports--0607-0476; Annual Survey 
of Manufactures--0607-0449, Business R&D and Innovation Survey--0607-
0912; and Manufacturers' Unfilled Orders Survey--0607-0561.
    Based upon the foregoing, I have directed that the Annual Surveys 
in the Manufacturing Area be conducted for the purpose of collecting 
these data.
