SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract The U.S. Census Bureau is requesting clearance for the collection of data concerning the Fertility Supplement to be conducted in conjunction with the June 2010 CPS. The Census Bureau sponsors the supplement questions, which were previously collected in June 2008, and have been asked periodically since 1971. This survey provides information used mainly by government and private analysts to project future population growth, to analyze child spacing, and to aid policymakers in their decisions affected by changes in family size and composition. Past studies have discovered noticeable changes in the patterns of fertility rates and the timing of the first birth. Potential needs for government assistance, such as aid to families with dependent children, child care, and maternal health care for single parent households, can be estimated using CPS characteristics matched with fertility data. II. Method of Collection The fertility information will be collected by both personal visit and telephone interviews in conjunction with the regular June CPS interviewing. All interviews are conducted using computer-assisted interviewing. III. Data OMB Number: 0607–0610. Form Number: There are no forms. We conduct all interviewing on computers. Type of Review: Regular. Affected Public: Individuals or Households. Estimated Number of Respondents: 30,000. Estimated Time per Response: 30 seconds. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 250.

Background On July 1, 2009, the Department of Commerce (the Department), published in the Federal Register a notice of ‘‘Opportunity to Request an Administrative Review’’ of the antidumping duty order on polyethylene terephthalate film sheet VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:26 Dec 03, 2009 Jkt 220001 and strip (PET Film) from India. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity To Request Administrative Review, 74 FR 31406 (July 1, 2009). On July 31, 2009, Jindal Poly Films Limited (Jindal), an Indian producer and exporter of PET Film to the United States, timely requested that the Department conduct an administrative review of Jindal. Jindal was the only party to request this administrative review. On August 25, 2009, the Department published a notice of initiation of the antidumping duty administrative review of PET Film from India for the period of review, July 1, 2008 through June 30, 2009. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 74 FR 42873 (August 25, 2009). Jindal withdrew its request for an administrative review on September 18, 2009. Rescission of Administrative Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party that requested a review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. Jindal withdrew its request before the 90-day deadline and no other party requested an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on PET Film from India. Therefore, in response to Jindal’s withdrawal of its request for an administrative review pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department hereby rescinds the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on PET Film from India. Assessment The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For the company for which this review is rescinded, the antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212 (c)(1)(i). The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of this rescission of administrative review in the Federal Register. Notification to Importers This notice serves as a reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) (2) to file a certificate PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order This notice serves as a final reminder to parties subject to administrative protection orders (‘‘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 the return/ destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation. This notice is issued and published in accordance with section 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4). Dated: November 30, 2009. John M.
