SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: SRS Publications Evaluation Card. VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:27 Jun 04, 2010 Jkt 220001 OMB Number: 0596–0163. Expiration Date of Approval: 12/31/10. Type of Request: Extension with no revision. Abstract: Executive Order 12862, issued September 11, 1993, directed Federal agencies to change the way they do business, to reform their management practices, and to provide service to the public that matches or exceeds the best service available in the private sector. In response to this Executive order, the Forest Service, Southern Research Station and Pacific Northwest Research Station, developed a Publications Evaluation Card for inclusion when distributing scientific research publications. Since the early 1920s, the Forest Service scientists have published the results of their studies about national forests and forest resources and products, in addition to their conclusions about the dynamics of natural timber stands and plantations, watershed and wildlife management, and recreational activities. These studies have provided long-term data that have become increasingly valuable to landowners and others involved in natural resource and land management. Data from the Publications Evaluation Card help Forest Service research stations determine if publications meet customers’ expectations and address customers’ needs. The collected information also helps scientists and authors provide relevant information on effective, efficient, responsible land management. The Government Printing Office binds the cards into all general technical reports, research papers, research notes, resource bulletins, and other technical publications printed for the Forest Service. Respondents complete comment cards and return them to the Forest Service in person, via surface mail, or using the Internet. Data gathered in this information collection are not available from other sources. The Forest Service’s Science Delivery Group collects and analyzes the data, providing feedback to individual scientists and authors with the purpose of improving future products. Curtailing this information collection would deprive customers of a convenient mechanism for providing detailed and constructive criticism of research publications. Estimate of Annual Burden: 4 minutes. PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Type of Respondents: Individuals; businesses; landowners; non-profit organizations; local, State, and foreign governments. Estimated Annual Number of Respondents: 72,000. Estimated Annual Number of Responses per Respondent: 1. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 4,800 hours. Comment is invited on: (1) Whether this collection of information is necessary for the stated purposes and the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, including whether the information will have practical or scientific utility; (2) the accuracy of the Agency’s estimate of the burden of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including the use of automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology. All comments received in response to this notice, including names and addresses when provided, will be a matter of public record. Comments will be summarized and included in the submission request toward Office of Management and Budget approval. Dated: June 1, 2010.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On October 26, 2009, the Department published in the Federal 
Register a notice of initiation of the administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on OTR Tires from the PRC. See Initiation of 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request 
for Revocation in Part, 74 FR 54956 (October 26, 2009). The preliminary 
results of this review are currently due no later than June 9, 2010.

Statutory Time Limits

    In antidumping duty administrative reviews, section 751(a)(3)(A) of 
the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''), requires the 
Department to make a preliminary determination within 245 days after 
the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is 
requested and a final determination within 120 days after the date on 
which the preliminary results are published. However, if it is not 
practicable to complete the review within these time periods, section 
751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit 
for the preliminary determination to a maximum of 365 days after the 
last day of the anniversary month.

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Review

    On February 3, 2010, both domestic interested parties\1\ submitted 
letters to the Department expressing concerns about the effect of a 
bankruptcy petition filed by GPX International Tire Corporation 
(``GPX''), an importer of record, on the ongoing administrative review. 
In response to domestic interested parties' concerns, the Department 
extended regulatory deadlines for Titan and Bridgestone pending 
resolution of those concerns. On April 30, 2010, Bridgestone informed 
the Department that its concerns about the GPX bankruptcy had been 
resolved. In addition, both Titan and Bridgestone have since made 
submissions to the Department in accordance with the extended 
regulatory deadlines.
    Meanwhile, on February 24, 2010, Tianjin United Tire & Rubber 
International Co., Ltd. (``TUTRIC''), a mandatory respondent, submitted 
a withdrawal of its request for review. The Department accepted 
TUTRIC's withdrawal on March 15, 2010, and chose an additional 
mandatory respondent on May 5, 2010.

    \1\ Titan Tire Corporation (``Titan''), and Bridgestone 
Americas, Inc, and Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations, LLC 
(collectively ``Bridgestone''), both domestic producers of the like 
product.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In light of the unanticipated delay resulting from issues related 
to GPX's bankruptcy and the recent selection of an additional mandatory 
respondent, we determine that it is not practicable to complete the 
preliminary results of this administrative review within the original 
time limit. The Department requires additional time to receive 
questionnaire responses from the substitute mandatory respondent, 
analyze questionnaire responses, issue supplemental questionnaires, 
conduct verification, and evaluate surrogate value submissions for 
purposes of the preliminary results.
    Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit for 
completion of the preliminary results of this administrative review by 
120 days. The preliminary results will now be due no later than October 
7, 2010.\2\ The final results continue to be due 120 days after the 
publication of the preliminary results.

Import Administration's tolling of all deadlines by seven calendar 
days due to closure of federal government offices in February 2010 
from a snowstorm. For further information, please see Memorandum 
from DAS for Import Administration regarding: Tolling of 
Administrative Deadlines As A Result of the Government Closure
