These recordkeeping requirements are necessary to maintain the integrity of client property. Each State Bar requires its attorneys to perform similar record keeping. The Code also requires an attorney or agent to report knowledge of certain violations of the Code to the USPTO. If the complaint is found to have merit, the USPTO will investigate and possibly prosecute violations of the Code. The Director of the Office of Enrollment and Discipline (OED) may, after notice and opportunity for a hearing, suspend, exclude, or disqualify any practitioner from further practice before the USPTO based on noncompliance with the regulations. Practitioners who have been excluded or suspended from practice before the USPTO must keep and maintain records of their steps to comply with the suspension or exclusion order. These records serve as the practitioner’s proof of compliance with the order. II. Method of Collection By mail, facsimile, or hand delivery to the USPTO when an individual is required to participate in the information collection. III. Data OMB Number: 0651–0017. Form Number(s): There are no forms associated with this collection. Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved collection. Affected Public: Individuals or households; businesses or other for profits; not-for-profit institutions. Estimated Number of Respondents: 635 responses. Estimated Time per Response: The USPTO estimates that it will take the public approximately 2 to 40 hours, depending upon the complexity of the situation, to gather the necessary information, maintain the required records, prepare the complaint, and submit the various documents in this information collection to the USPTO. Estimated Total Annual Respondent Burden Hours: 12,330 hours. Estimated Total Annual Respondent Cost Burden: $1,275,120. At $100 per hour for a para-professional/clerical worker, the USPTO estimates $1,197,000 per year for salary costs associated with respondents for the recordkeeping requirements in this collection. For complaint/violation reporting, the USPTO predicts that half of the complaints will be filed by practitioners and that the remaining complaints will be split evenly between non-legal professionals and semiprofessionals or skilled trades persons. The USPTO estimates that it will cost practitioners $325 per hour, non-legal professionals $156 per hour, and semiprofessionals or skilled trades persons $60 per hour to submit a complaint, for a weighted average rate of $217 per hour. Considering these factors, the USPTO estimates $78,120 per year for salary costs associated with filing a complaint, for a total annual respondent cost burden of $1,275,120 per year.

The public may submit the complaints in this collection to the USPTO by mail through the United States Postal Service. If these documents are sent by first-class mail, a certificate of mailing for each piece of correspondence, stating the date of deposit or transmission to the USPTO, may also be included. The USPTO expects that 180 complaints will be mailed to the USPTO with first-class postage, with 50% or 90 complaints weighing 2 ounces at an average cost of 61 cents for a total of $55; and 50% or 90 complaints weighing 1 pound at an average cost of $4.80 for a total of $432.

The applicant requests a permit to attach tags to a variety of large and small endangered and non-endangered cetacean species. Research would occur in the North Atlantic from Maine to Texas and in the North Pacific from Alaska to California, including Hawaii. A peduncle belt type tag attachment mechanism has been developed as a noninvasive tagging option for medium to long-term cetacean studies. Two different types of peduncle belt tags would be used: (1) a form-fitting saddle pack tag which sits on the dorsal ridge of the peduncle just before the fluke insertion and (2) a peduncle-let harness which secures a towed telemetry buoy. Multiple research objectives would be addressed using data from the tags, including: (1) long-term movement and habitat use studies using satellite/GPS/ depth tags, (2) medium-term acoustic studies using an audio recording package to examine transmitted and received sound, and (3) extended finescale behavioral ecology studies using multi-sensor data recording packages. Initial efforts would be limited to five species. In the first year, a maximum of 10 humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae), 10 long-finned pilot whales (Globicephala melas), 10 short- E:\FR\FM\23MRN1.SGM 23MRN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On December 8, 2009, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on circular welded non-alloy steel pipe from the 
Republic of Korea, covering the period November 1, 2007 through October 
31, 2008. See Circular Welded Non-Alloy Steel Pipe from the Republic of 
Korea: Preliminary Results and Rescission in Part of the Antidumping 
Duty Administrative Review, 74 FR 64670 (December 8, 2009) 
(``Preliminary Results''). The final results of this administrative 
review were originally due no later than April 7, 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 April 14, 
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.
    The Department has determined that it requires additional time to 
complete this review. Verification was conducted after the Preliminary 
Results and the Department needs to allow time for parties to brief the 
issues, provide rebuttal comments, and conduct a hearing, if requested. 
Moreover, the Department needs to consider all the issues raised, 
possibly including complex issues regarding cost methodology. Thus, it 
is not practicable to complete this review by April 14, 2010, and the 
Department is extending the time limit for completion of the final 
results by an additional 60 days to June 13, 2010, in accordance with 
section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. However, June 13, 2010, falls on a 
Sunday, and it is the Department's long-standing practice to issue a 
determination the next business day when the statutory deadline falls 
on a weekend, federal holiday, or any other day when the Department is 
closed. See Notice of Clarification: Application of ``Next Business 
Day'' Rule for Administrative Determination Deadlines Pursuant to the 
Tariff Act of 1930, As Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005). 
Accordingly, the deadline for completion of the final results is now no 
later than June 14, 2010.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: March 17, 2010.
