The Bureau of Economic Analysis, the primary Federal user of the ACES data, uses these data in refining and evaluating annual estimates of investment in structures and equipment in the national income and product accounts, compiling annual inputoutput tables, and computing gross domestic product by industry. The Federal Reserve Board uses these data to improve estimates of investment indicators for monetary policy. The Bureau of Labor Statistics uses these data to improve estimates of capital stocks for productivity analysis. Industry analysts use these data for market analysis, economic forecasting, identifying business opportunities, product development, and business planning. Changes from the previous ACES are the elimination of detailed capital expenditures by type of structure and type of equipment. These data, collected once every five years, were collected in the 2008 ACES and will not be collected again until the 2013 ACES, which is not included in the scope of the present requests for comments. mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES II.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract The U.S. Census Bureau plans to conduct the 2010 through 2012 Information and Communication Technology Survey (ICTS). The annual survey collects data on two categories of non-capitalized expenses (purchases; and operating leases and rental payments) for four types of information and communication technology equipment and software (computers and peripheral equipment; ICT equipment, excluding computers and peripherals; electromedical and electrotherapeutic apparatus; and computer software, including payroll associated with software development).

DATES: Effective Date: August 26, 2010. SUMMARY: On May 3, 2010, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty order on potassium permanganate from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’). On the basis of a timely notice of intent to participate and an adequate substantive response filed on behalf of a domestic interested party, as well as a lack of response from respondent interested parties, the Department conducted an expedited sunset review. As a result of the sunset review, the Department finds that revocation of the antidumping duty order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping. The dumping margins are identified in the Final Results of Review section of this notice. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Alexis Polovina, AD/CVD Operations, Office 9, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–3927. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On May 3, 2010, the Department published the notice of initiation of the sunset review of the antidumping duty order on potassium permanganate from the PRC pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’). See Initiation of Five-Year (‘‘Sunset’’) Review, 75 FR 23240 (May 3, 2010). On May 6, 2010, the Department received a notice of intent to participate from a domestic producer, Carus Corporation (‘‘Carus,’’ ‘‘domestic interested party,’’ or ‘‘Petitioner’’). Submission of the notice of intent to participate filed by Petitioner was PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 52509 within the deadline specified in section 351.218(d)(1)(i) of the Department’s regulations. The domestic interested party claimed interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act, as Carus is a domestic manufacturer of potassium permanganate in the United States. On May 28, 2010, the Department received a substantive response from the domestic interested party within the deadline specified in section 351.218(d)(3)(i) of the Department’s regulations. We did not receive substantive responses from any respondent interested parties to this proceeding. As a result, pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and section 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2) of the Department’s regulations, the Department determined to conduct an expedited review of the order. Scope of the Order Imports covered by the order are shipments of potassium permanganate, an inorganic chemical produced in freeflowing, technical, and pharmaceutical grades. Potassium permanganate is currently classifiable under item 2841.61.00 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS). The HTS item number is provided for convenience and customs purposes. The written description remains dispositive. Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in this review are addressed in the ‘‘Issues and Decision Memorandum’’ (‘‘Decision Memorandum’’) from Edward C. Yang, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, to Ronald K. Lorentzen, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, dated August 19, 2010, which is hereby adopted by this notice. The issues discussed in the Decision Memorandum include the likelihood of continuation or recurrence of dumping and the magnitude of the margins likely to prevail if the order were revoked. Parties can find a complete discussion of all issues raised in this review and the corresponding recommendations in this public memorandum, which is on file in the Central Records Unit in room 1117 of the main Commerce building. In addition, a complete version of the Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly on the internet at http:// ia.ita.doc.gov/frn. The paper copy and electronic version of the Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Final Results of Review Pursuant to sections 752(c)(1) and (3) of the Act, we determine that revocation of the antidumping duty order on potassium permanganate from the PRC E:\FR\FM\26AUN1.SGM 26AUN1
