SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On April 27, 2009, we published a notice initiating an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on brass sheet and strip from Germany covering one respondent, Wieland– Werke A.G. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 74 FR 19042 (April 27, 2009). The preliminary results of this review covering the period March 1, 2008, through February 28, 2009, were published on April 13, 2010. See Brass Sheet and Strip From Germany: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 75 FR 18801 (April 13, 2010). The final results of this administrative review were originally due no later than August 4, 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 August 11, 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. On April 30, 2010, the Petitioners1 requested that the deadline for the final results in this administrative review be extended by the full 60 days authorized. The Petitioners commented that sales and cost verification reports have not been issued, and that interested parties will need time to submit briefs. The Petitioners also commented that the Department will need time to hold a possible hearing. Extension of the Time Limit for the Final Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 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 1 The Petitioners include GBC Metals, LLC of Global Brass and Copper, Inc., doing business as Olin Brass, Heyco Metals, Inc., Luvata Buffalo, Inc., PMX Industries, Inc., and Revere Copper Products, Inc. E:\FR\FM\17MYN1.SGM 17MYN1 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 94 / Monday, May 17, 2010 / Notices 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 this proceeding, the Department agrees with the Petitioners that additional time is necessary to complete the final results of this administrative review. Because the Department had to reschedule its cost verification due to inclement weather, the Department intends to conduct its cost verification in July 2010. In order to ensure that interested parties have sufficient time to analyze and comment on the verification report, we determine it is not practicable to complete this administrative review within the original time limit. Consequently, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the final results of this review by 60 days, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. The final results are now due October 12, 2010, since the revised deadline falls on a Sunday and the following day is a federal holiday.

Priorities: These priorities are from the notice of final priorities for this program, published in the Federal Register on August 3, 2005 (70 FR 44841). Definitions: For the purpose of these priorities, we use the following definitions: Deaf means individuals who are deaf, hard of hearing, late deafened, or deafblind. The term makes no reference or judgment of preferred mode of communication or language preference. Interpreter means individuals, both hearing and deaf, who provide interpreting or transliterating, or both, for deaf, hard of hearing, and deaf-blind individuals using a variety of languages and modes of communication including but not limited to American Sign Language, Conceptually Accurate Signed English, other forms of signed English, oral communication, tactile communication, and cued speech. National Interpreter Education Center means a project supported by the Rehabilitation Services Administration (RSA) to— (1) Coordinate the activities of the Regional Interpreter Education Centers; (2) ensure the effectiveness of the educational opportunities offered by the Regional Interpreter Education Centers; (3) ensure the effectiveness of the program as a whole by evaluating and reporting outcomes; (4) provide technical assistance to the field on effective practices in interpreter education; and (5) provide educational opportunities for interpreter educators. Novice interpreter means an interpreter who has graduated from an interpreter training program and demonstrates language fluency in American Sign Language and in English, but lacks experience working as an interpreter. Qualified interpreter means an interpreter who is able to interpret effectively, accurately, and impartially both receptively and expressively, using any necessary specialized vocabulary. This definition, which is mentioned in the Senate Report for the Rehabilitation Act Amendments of 1998, Senate Report 105–106 (Second Session 1998), is one way for States to determine if interpreters are sufficiently qualified and is based on the standard specified in regulations implementing titles II and III of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. Regional Interpreter Education Center means a coordinated regional center to provide quality educational PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 27539 opportunities for interpreters at all skill levels. Training and education will be used interchangeably. Absolute Priority: For FY 2010 this priority is an absolute priority. Under 34 CFR 75.105(c)(3) we consider only applications that meet this priority. This priority is: Priority One—National Interpreter Education Center. The purpose of this priority is to support a National Interpreter Education Center (National Center) to coordinate the activities of the Regional Interpreter Education Center or Centers, to ensure the effectiveness of the educational opportunities offered by the Regional Interpreter Education Center or Centers, to ensure the effectiveness of the program as a whole by evaluating and reporting outcomes, to provide technical assistance to the field on effective practices in interpreter education, and to provide educational opportunities for interpreter educators. In conducting its activities, the National Center must ensure the provision of quality educational opportunities with substantial consumer involvement throughout the process and with a specific focus on interpreting for consumers of vocational rehabilitation (VR) services. The National Center funded under this priority must do the following: • Identify and promote effective practices in interpreter education and provide technical assistance to the Regional Interpreter Education Center or Centers and the field on effective practices in interpreter education. • Provide educational opportunities (based on the model curriculum developed for interpreter educators under Grant Number H160C030001, www.asl.neu.edu/TIEM.online/ mm_curriculum.html) to working interpreter educators who need to obtain, enhance, or update their training on effective practices in interpreter education and to new interpreter educators. • Promote improved education of interpreters and coordinate the interpreter education activities of the Regional Interpreter Education Center or Centers by— (1) Developing ‘‘Program Quality Indicators’’ for this program, including the Regional Interpreter Education Center or Centers, and measuring performance against these indicators; (2) Conducting education needs assessments and, based on the results, developing educational activities for delivery through the Regional Interpreter Education Center or Centers; E:\FR\FM\17MYN1.SGM 17MYN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On April 27, 2009, we published a notice initiating an 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on brass sheet and 
strip from Germany covering one respondent, Wieland-Werke A.G. See 
Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative 
Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 74 FR 19042 (April 27, 
2009). The preliminary results of this review covering the period March 
1, 2008, through February 28, 2009, were published on April 13, 2010. 
See Brass Sheet and Strip From Germany: Preliminary Results of 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 75 FR 18801 (April 13, 2010). 
The final results of this administrative review were originally due no 
later than August 4, 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 August 11, 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. On 
April 30, 2010, the Petitioners\1\ requested that the deadline for the 
final results in this administrative review be extended by the full 60 
days authorized. The Petitioners commented that sales and cost 
verification reports have not been issued, and that interested parties 
will need time to submit briefs. The Petitioners also commented that 
the Department will need time to hold a possible hearing.

Copper, Inc., doing business as Olin Brass, Heyco Metals, Inc., 
Luvata Buffalo, Inc., PMX Industries, Inc., and Revere Copper 
Products, Inc.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Extension of the Time Limit for the Final Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
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

[[Page 27539]]

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 this proceeding, the Department agrees with the Petitioners that 
additional time is necessary to complete the final results of this 
administrative review. Because the Department had to reschedule its 
cost verification due to inclement weather, the Department intends to 
conduct its cost verification in July 2010. In order to ensure that 
interested parties have sufficient time to analyze and comment on the 
verification report, we determine it is not practicable to complete 
this administrative review within the original time limit. 
Consequently, the Department is extending the time limit for completion 
of the final results of this review by 60 days, in accordance with 
section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. The final results are now due October 
12, 2010, since the revised deadline falls on a Sunday and the 
following day is a federal holiday.
    This notice is published pursuant to sections 751(a)(3)(A) and 
777(i)(1) of the Act.
