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. 81a81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR part 400). It was formally filed on November 12, 2009. The grantee’s proposed service area under the ASF would be Orange County, 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 New York/Newark Customs and Border Protection port of entry. FTZ 37 was approved by the Board on May 4, 1978 (Board Order 130, 43 FR 20526, 5/12/1978) and expanded on July 9, 1999 (Board Order 1044, 64 FR 38887, 7/20/1999). The applicant is requesting to include its current sites 3 and 7 as ‘‘magnet sites’’. The applicant proposes that Site 3 be exempt from ‘‘sunset’’ time limits that otherwise apply to sites under the ASF. The applicant is requesting removal of sites 1, 2 and 5. Sites 4 and 6 have lapsed. The applicant is also requesting approval of the following initial ‘‘usage-driven’’ site: Proposed Site 8 (36 acres)—within the Chester Industrial Park, 29 Elizabeth Drive, Chester, NY. In accordance with the Board’s regulations, Maureen Hinman of the FTZ staff is designated examiner to evaluate and analyze the facts and information presented in the application and case record and to report findings and recommendations to the Board.

Scope Rulings On December 29, 2004, the Department received a request from Cisco Systems, Inc., to determine PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 60239 whether removable memory modules placed on motherboards that are imported for repair or refurbishment are within the scope of the order. See Notice of Countervailing Duty Order: Dynamic Random Access Memory Semiconductors from the Republic of Korea, 68 FR 47546 (August 11, 2003) (‘‘CVD Order’’). The Department initiated a scope inquiry pursuant to 19 CFR 351.225(e) on February 4, 2005. On January 12, 2006, the Department issued a final scope ruling, finding that removable memory modules placed on motherboards that are imported for repair or refurbishment are not within the scope of the CVD Order provided that the importer certifies that it will destroy any memory modules that are removed for repair or refurbishment. See Memorandum from Stephen J. Claeys to David M. Spooner, regarding Final Scope Ruling, Countervailing Duty Order on DRAMS from the Republic of Korea (January 12, 2006). Period of Review The period for which we are measuring subsidies, i.e., the period of review (‘‘POR’’), is January 1, 2007, through December 31, 2007. Final Results of Review In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4)(i), in the Preliminary Results we calculated an individual subsidy rate for Hynix Semiconductor, Inc. (‘‘Hynix’’), the producer/exporter covered by this administrative review. Neither the petitioner, Micron Technology, Inc., nor the respondent commented on the Preliminary Results, and we find that no changes were warranted.

We determine that the total estimated net countervailable subsidy rate for Hynix for calendar year 2007 is 0.06 percent ad valorem, which is de minimis in accordance with 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1). The Department will instruct CBP to liquidate shipments of DRAMS by Hynix entered or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption from January 1, 2007, through December 31, 2007, without regard to countervailing duties. See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1). We intend to issue these instructions 15 days after publication of these final results of review. On October 3, 2008, the Department published a Federal Register notice that, inter alia, revoked this order, effective August 11, 2008. See Dynamic Random Access Memory Semiconductors From the Republic of Korea: Final Results of Sunset Review and Revocation of Order, 73 FR 57594 (October 3, 2008). As a result, CBP is no longer suspending liquidation for entries of subject merchandise occurring after the revocation. Therefore, there is no need to issue new cash deposit instructions for these final results of review. This notice serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:03 Nov 19, 2009 Jkt 220001 protective order (‘‘APO’’) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3).

ACTION: Notice of interim patent term extension. SUMMARY: The United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued an order granting interim extension under 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5) for a one-year interim extension of the term of U.S. Patent No. 5,407,914. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mary C. Till by telephone at (571) 272– 7755; by mail marked to her attention and addressed to the Commissioner for Patents, Mail Stop Hatch-Waxman PTE, P.O.

Section 156 of Title 35, United States Code, generally provides that the term of a patent may be extended for a period of up to five years if the patent claims a product, or a method of making or using a product, that has been subject to certain defined regulatory review, and that the patent may be extended for interim periods of up to one year if the regulatory review is anticipated to extend beyond the expiration date of the patent. On October 6, 2009, Discovery Laboratories Inc., on behalf of patent owner Scripps Research Institute, timely filed an application under 35 U.S.C. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 156(d)(5) for an interim extension of the term of U.S. Patent No. 5,407,914. The patent claims the human drug product, SURFAXIN® (lucinactant) and a method of using SURFAXIN® (lucinactant). The application indicates that a New Drug Application, NDA No. 21–746, for the human drug product SURFAXIN® (lucinactant) has been filed, and is currently undergoing regulatory review before the Food and Drug Administration for permission to market or use the product commercially. Review of the application indicates that except for permission to market or use the product commercially, the subject patent would be eligible for an extension of the patent term under 35 U.S.C. 156, and that the patent should be extended for one year as required by 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5)(B). Because it is apparent that the regulatory review period will continue beyond the original expiration date of the patent November 17, 2009, interim extension of the patent term under 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5) is appropriate. An interim extension under 35 U.S.C. 156(d)(5) of the term of U.S. Patent No. 5,407,914 is granted for a period of one year from the original expiration date of the patent, i.e., until November 17, 2010.

    The scope of the order additionally includes, but is not limited 
to, video random access memory and synchronous graphics random access 
memory, as well as various types of DRAMS, including fast page-mode, 
extended data-out, burst extended data-out, synchronous dynamic RAM, 
Rambus DRAM, and Double Data Rate DRAM. The scope also includes any 
future density, packaging, or assembling of DRAMS. Also included in the 
scope of the order are removable memory modules placed on motherboards, 
with or without a central processing unit, unless the importer of the 
motherboards certifies with U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(``CBP'') that neither it, nor a party related to it or under contract 
to it, will remove the modules from the motherboards after importation. 
The scope of the order does not include DRAMS or memory modules that 
are re-imported for repair or replacement.
    The DRAMS subject to the order are currently classifiable under 
subheadings 8542.21.8005, 8542.21.8020 through 8542.21.8030, and 
8542.32.0001 through 8542.32.0023 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of 
the United States (``HTSUS''). The memory modules containing DRAMS from 
the ROK, described above, are currently classifiable under subheadings

Scope Rulings

    On December 29, 2004, the Department received a request from Cisco 
Systems, Inc., to determine whether removable memory modules placed on 
motherboards that are imported for repair or refurbishment are within 
the scope of the order. See Notice of Countervailing Duty Order: 
Dynamic Random Access Memory Semiconductors from the Republic of Korea, 
68 FR 47546 (August 11, 2003) (``CVD Order''). The Department initiated 
a scope inquiry pursuant to 19 CFR 351.225(e) on February 4, 2005. On 
January 12, 2006, the Department issued a final scope ruling, finding 
that removable memory modules placed on motherboards that are imported 
for repair or refurbishment are not within the scope of the CVD Order 
provided that the importer certifies that it will destroy any memory 
modules that are removed for repair or refurbishment. See Memorandum 
from Stephen J. Claeys to David M. Spooner, regarding Final Scope 
Ruling, Countervailing Duty Order on DRAMS from the Republic of Korea 
(January 12, 2006).

Period of Review

    The period for which we are measuring subsidies, i.e., the period 
of review (``POR''), is January 1, 2007, through December 31, 2007.

Final Results of Review

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4)(i), in the Preliminary 
Results we calculated an individual subsidy rate for Hynix

    The calculations will be disclosed to the interested parties in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).
    We determine that the total estimated net countervailable subsidy 
rate for Hynix for calendar year 2007 is 0.06 percent ad valorem, which 
is de minimis in accordance with 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1). The Department 
will instruct CBP to liquidate shipments of DRAMS by Hynix entered or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption from January 1, 2007, through 
December 31, 2007, without regard to countervailing duties. See 19 CFR 
351.106(c)(1). We intend to issue these instructions 15 days after 
publication of these final results of review.
    On October 3, 2008, the Department published a Federal Register 
notice that, inter alia, revoked this order, effective August 11, 2008. 
See Dynamic Random Access Memory Semiconductors From the Republic of 
Korea: Final Results of Sunset Review and Revocation of Order, 73 FR 
57594 (October 3, 2008). As a result, CBP is no longer suspending 
liquidation for entries of subject merchandise occurring after the 
revocation. Therefore, there is no need to issue new cash deposit 
instructions for these final results of review.
    This notice serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (``APO'') of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written 
notification of return or destruction of APO materials or conversion to 
judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with 
the regulations and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation.
    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: November 13, 2009.
