SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On August 7, 2009, the Department published in the Federal Register the preliminary results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on stainless steel sheet and strip in coils (S4 in coils) from Mexico for the period July 1, 2007, through June 30, 2008. See Stainless Steel Sheet and Strip in Coils From Mexico; Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Intent Not To Revoke Order in Part, 74 FR 39622 (August 7, 2009) (Preliminary Results). In the Preliminary Results, we invited parties to comment. In response to the Department’s invitation to comment on the preliminary results of this review, Mexinox submitted a request for a public hearing and a case brief on September 4, 2009, and September 15, 2009, respectively. See Letter from Hogan & Hartson LLP (counsel for VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:02 Dec 08, 2009 Jkt 220001 respondent) titled ‘‘Stainless Steel Sheet and Strip in Coils from Mexico— Request for Hearing,’’ dated September 4, 2009; see also Case Brief from Hogan & Hartson, LLP titled ‘‘Stainless Steel Sheet and Strip in Coils from Mexico— Case Brief,’’ dated September 15, 2009. Allegheny Ludlum Corporation, AK Steel Corporation, and North American Stainless (collectively referred to as petitioners), submitted their rebuttal brief on September 24, 2009. See Letter from Kelley, Drye, & Warren, LLP (counsel for petitioner), titled ‘‘Stainless Steel Sheet and Strip in Coils from Mexico—Petitioner’s Rebuttal Brief,’’ dated September 24, 2009. To accommodate respondent’s request, a public hearing was held on October 2, 2009. See Transcript of ‘‘In the Matter of: The Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Stainless Steel Sheet and Strip in Coils from Mexico,’’ dated October 9, 2009. The current deadline for the final results of this review is December 5, 2009. Extension of Time Limits for Final Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires the Department to complete the final results of 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 the time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the 120 day time period for the final results up to 180 days. The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete this review within the original time frame because additional analysis must be performed with respect to several complex issues raised by the parties, such as Mexinox’s cost of production, etc. Accordingly, the Department is extending fully the time limit for completion of the final results of this administrative review until no later than February 3, 2010, which is 180 days after the date on which the preliminary results of review were published. This extension is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act. Dated: December 3, 2009. John M. Andersen, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations. [FR Doc.

Box 1450, Alexandria, Virginia 22313–1450. The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) is establishing a PCT Task Force to consider the perspectives of interested parties concerned with improving the USPTO’s activities as a receiving Office, an International Searching Authority (ISA), and an International Preliminary Examination Authority (IPEA), as well as of the PCT System as a whole. To support the operation of the Task Force, the USPTO will be holding a public meeting and inviting public comments. Further meetings may be announced as the Task Force develops its work. The number of patent applications filed in the USPTO and other Offices has increased significantly over the last decade. As worldwide patent protection is increasingly requested, Patent Offices are struggling under the burden of this increasing workload. With 142 members, the PCT offers a comprehensive framework with widespread acceptance that can be used to address this challenge. To build upon this framework, the USPTO is considering how PCT applications could be included in worksharing efforts, and other process improvements such as allowing submission of prior art by applicants and third parties to further improve PCT processing. This notice is to inform users of the PCT and others of this opportunity to help the USPTO in its strategy to improve efficiencies and optimize the usefulness of the PCT system. The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) recently completed a PCT user survey. The results of this survey are posted here: http://www.wipo.int/export/sites/www/ pct/en/activity/pct_survey_2009.pdf. The survey respondents indicate that the PCT system is functioning generally well, but that there is room for improvement in the USPTO, as well as other Offices. Participants may wish to provide more detailed information regarding matters addressed in the survey, or raise new matters such as those items listed in the questions below. Comments upon one or more of the following would be helpful: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\09DEN1.SGM 09DEN1

    On July 30, 2008, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
published the initiation of the administrative review of the

the period June 1, 2007, through May 31, 2008.

Extension of Time Limit for Final Results of Review

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (``Act''), the Department shall make a final determination in
