FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Brian Hooker, Fishery Management Specialist, NMFS Office of Sustainable Fisheries, (301) 713–2334. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Coastal Shark ISFMP includes management measures for several species of Atlantic sharks. The implementation of these regulations is necessary to rebuild depleted shark stocks, ensure sustainable harvest of others, and provide protection for sharks in state nursing and pupping grounds. The Commission’s Technical Committee has identified Delaware Bay as one of the most important nursing grounds for depleted sandbar sharks on the Atlantic Coast. Included in the 22 commercial and recreational regulations in the FMP is a seasonal closure from Virginia north through New Jersey to protect pupping sandbar sharks. On February 4, 2010, the Commission found the State of New Jersey out of compliance for not fully and effectively implementing and enforcing the Coastal Shark ISFMP. The Commission subsequently referred its noncompliance finding to NMFS. Federal response to a Commission non-compliance referral is governed by the Atlantic Coastal Act. Under the Atlantic Coastal Act, the Secretary of Commerce (Secretary) must make two findings within 30 days after receiving the non-compliance referral. First, the Secretary must determine whether the state in question (in this case, New Jersey) has failed to carry out its responsibilities under the ISFMP. Second, the Secretary must determine whether the measures that the State has failed to implement or enforce are necessary for the conservation of the fishery in question. If the Secretary of Commerce makes affirmative findings on both criteria, then the Secretary must implement a moratorium on fishing in the fishery in question (in this case coastal sharks) within the waters of the non-complying state (in this case, New Jersey). Further, the moratorium must become effective within six months of the date of the Secretary’s noncompliance determination. To the extent that the allegedly offending state later implements the involved measure, the Atlantic Coastal Act allows the state to petition the Commission that it has come back into compliance, and if the Commission concurs, the Commission VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:46 Feb 26, 2010 Jkt 220001 will notify the Secretary and, if the Secretary concurs, the moratorium will be withdrawn. The Secretary has delegated Atlantic Coastal Act authorities to the Assistant Administrator for Fisheries at NMFS. NMFS has notified the State of New Jersey, the Commission, the MidAtlantic Fishery Management Council, and the New England Fishery Management Council, in separate letters, of its receipt of the Commission’s non-compliance referral. In the letters, NMFS solicits comments from the Commission and Councils to the extent either entity is interested in providing such comments. NMFS also indicates to the State of New Jersey that the State is entitled to meet with and present its comments directly to NMFS if the State so desires. NMFS intends to make its noncompliance determination on or about March 10, 2010, which is 30 days after receipt of the Commission’s noncompliance referral. NMFS will announce its determination by Federal Register notice immediately thereafter. To the extent that NMFS makes an affirmative non-compliance finding, NMFS will announce the effective date of the moratorium in that Federal Register notice. Authority: 16 U.S.C. 5101 et seq.

See Certain Helical Spring Lock Washers from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 74 FR 57653 (November 9, 2009). The final results of this administrative review were originally due no later than March 9, 2010. As explained in the memorandum from the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, the Department has exercised its discretion to toll deadlines for the duration of the closure of the Federal Government from February 5, through February 12, 2010. Thus, all deadlines in this segment of the proceeding have been extended by seven days. The revised deadline for the final results of this review is currently March 16, 2010. See Memorandum to the Record from Ronald Lorentzen, DAS for Import Administration, regarding ‘‘Tolling of Administrative Deadlines As a Result of the Government Closure During the Recent Snowstorm,’’ dated February 12, 2010. Extension of Time Limit for Final Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘Act’’), requires that the Department issue the final results of an administrative review within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. 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 deadline for the final results to a maximum of 180 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. In the instant review, the Department requires additional time to address the issues raised by interested parties regarding surrogate values for factors of production and to analyze additional surrogate value information filed by both the petitioner and respondent. In their case briefs and rebuttal briefs both parties have raised concerns about the selection of a surrogate value for steel wire rod, the key input for the production of lock washers. In addition, parties have presented arguments backed up by the timely filed surrogate value information regarding the selection of surrogate values for E:\FR\FM\01MRN1.SGM 01MRN1 9160 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 39 / Monday, March 1, 2010 / Notices chemical inputs and financial ratios that the Department needs additional time to consider.

See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Deferral of Administrative Review, 74 FR 37690 (July 29, 2009). This review covers the period June 1, 2008, through May 31, 2009. The preliminary results of the review were 1 May 15, 2010 is the actual 60-day extended deadline. As May 15 is a Saturday, the new final VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:46 Feb 26, 2010 Jkt 220001 due no later than March 2, 2010. As explained in the memorandum from the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, the Department has exercised its discretion to toll deadlines for the duration of the closure of the Federal Government from February 5, through February 12, 2010. Thus, all deadlines in this segment of the proceeding have been extended by seven days. The revised deadline for the preliminary results of this review is now March 9, 2010. See Memorandum to the Record from Ronald Lorentzen, DAS for Import Administration, regarding ‘‘Tolling of Administrative Deadlines as a Result of the Government Closure During the Recent Snowstorm,’’ dated February 12, 2010. Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Review Pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), the Department shall make a preliminary determination in an administrative review of an antidumping duty order within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the date of publication of the order. The Act further provides, however, that the Department may extend that 245-day period to 365 days if it determines it is not practicable to complete the review within the foregoing time period. The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of the administrative review of chlorinated isocyanurates from the PRC within this time limit. Specifically, due to complex issues, e.g., factors of production and surrogate value selections, we find that additional time is needed to complete these preliminary results. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is extending the time period for completion of the preliminary results of this review by 60 days from March 9, 2010, until May 8, 2010. However, because May 8, 2010, falls on a weekend, the actual due date will be the first business day following the weekend, i.e., May 10, 2010.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On November 9, 2009, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on certain helical spring lock washers (``lock 
washers'') from the People's Republic of China, covering the period 
October 1, 2007 through September 30, 2008. See Certain Helical Spring 
Lock Washers from the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Results 
of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 74 FR 57653 (November 9, 
2009). The final results of this administrative review were originally 
due no later than March 9, 2010. As explained in the memorandum from 
the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, the 
Department has exercised its discretion to toll deadlines for the 
duration of the closure of the Federal Government from February 5, 
through February 12, 2010. Thus, all deadlines in this segment of the 
proceeding have been extended by seven days. The revised deadline for 
the final results of this review is currently March 16, 2010. See 
Memorandum to the Record from Ronald Lorentzen, DAS for Import 
Administration, regarding ``Tolling of Administrative Deadlines As a 
Result of the Government Closure During the Recent Snowstorm,'' dated 
February 12, 2010.

Extension of Time Limit for Final Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(``Act''), requires that the Department issue the final results of an 
administrative review within 120 days after the date on which the 
preliminary results are published. 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 deadline for the final results to a 
maximum of 180 days after the date on which the preliminary results are 
published.
    In the instant review, the Department requires additional time to 
address the issues raised by interested parties regarding surrogate 
values for factors of production and to analyze additional surrogate 
value information filed by both the petitioner and respondent. In their 
case briefs and rebuttal briefs both parties have raised concerns about 
the selection of a surrogate value for steel wire rod, the key input 
for the production of lock washers. In addition, parties have presented 
arguments backed up by the timely filed surrogate value information 
regarding the selection of surrogate values for

chemical inputs and financial ratios that the Department needs 
additional time to consider. Thus, it is not practicable to complete 
this review by March 16, 2010, and the Department is, therefore, 
extending the time limit for completion of the final results by an 
additional 60 days, as permitted by section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. 
The final results are now due no later than May 17, 2010.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ May 15, 2010 is the actual 60-day extended deadline. As May 
15 is a Saturday, the new final results deadline will be May 17, 
2010, the first business day after that weekend.
