The request must include the name(s) of the exporter or producer for which the inquiry is requested. For the first administrative review of any order, there will be no assessment of antidumping or countervailing duties on entries of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from ware house, for consumption during the relevant provisional-measures ‘‘gap’’ period, of the order, if such a gap period is applicable to the POR. Interested parties must submit applications for disclosure under administrative protective orders in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305. On January 22, 2008, the Department published Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Documents Submission Procedures; APO Procedures, 73 FR 3634 (January 22, 2008). Those procedures apply to administrative reviews included in this notice of initiation. Parties wishing to participate in any of these administrative reviews should ensure that they meet the requirements of these procedures (e.g., the filing of separate letters of appearance as discussed at 19 CFR 351.103(d)). These initiations and this notice are in accordance with section 751(a) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1675(a)) and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i). Dated: August 25, 2010.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The National Institute of Standards and Technology announces its intention to terminate the Commercial Products Testing SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:48 Aug 30, 2010 Jkt 220001 Laboratory Accreditation Program offered by NVLAP. The Commercial Products Testing Laboratory Accreditation Program includes the following areas of testing: paints and related coatings, paper and related products, building seals and sealants, plastics, plumbing, roofing, and mattresses. DATES: The Commercial Products Testing Laboratory Accreditation Program will be terminated effective September 30, 2010. ADDRESSES: Chief, National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program, National Institute of Standards and Technology, 100 Bureau Drive, Stop 2140, Gaithersburg, MD 20899–2140; e-mail to: nvlap@nist.gov. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Sally Bruce, Chief, National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program, (301) 975–4016; e-mail: nvlap@nist.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The National Institute of Standards and Technology administers the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP) under regulations found in Part 285 of Title 15 of the Code of Federal Regulations. NVLAP provides an unbiased third-party evaluation and recognition of laboratory performance, as well as expert technical assistance to upgrade that performance, by accrediting calibration and testing laboratories found competent to perform specific calibrations or tests. NVLAP is comprised of a set of Laboratory Accreditation Programs (LAPs) that are established on the basis of requests and demonstrated need. Each LAP includes specific test and/or calibration standards and related methods and protocols assembled to satisfy the unique needs for accreditation in the field of testing or calibration. Under the NVLAP Procedures found at 15 CFR part 285, the Chief of NVLAP may terminate a specific Laboratory Accreditation Program (LAP) when he/ she determines that a need no longer exists to accredit laboratories for the services covered under the scope of the LAP. Pursuant to 15 CFR part 285, the Chief of NVLAP has determined that a need no longer exists to accredit laboratories for the services covered under the Commercial Products Testing LAP and that the Commercial Products Testing LAP will be terminated. The Commercial Products Testing LAP includes the following areas of testing: paints and related coatings, paper and related products, building seals and sealants, plastics, plumbing, roofing, and mattresses. The purpose of this program is to supply unbiased PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 53277 third-party evaluation and attestation of testing competence of manufacturer and independent testing laboratories in the given fields. A review of the Commercial Products Testing LAP revealed that there are four (4) laboratories enrolled in the plumbing area. Two of the plumbing laboratories are also accredited for plastic and paint testing in support of plumbing testing. Three of the four plumbing laboratories carry redundant accreditation by the International Accreditation Service (IAS), an accreditation body recognized by the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC), for plumbing testing, and for plastic and paint testing for the two laboratories also accredited in those fields. Terminating the Commercial Products Testing LAP will allow those three laboratories to eliminate the duplicate accreditations, saving each between $4,000 and $8,000 per year in fees. All other areas of testing within the Commercial Products Testing LAP are covered by nongovernmental ILACrecognized accrediting bodies within the United States. As a result of this review, the Chief of NVLAP has decided to terminate this LAP because there is no longer a need to accredit laboratories for the services covered under the scope of this LAP. Effective on September 30, 2010, NVLAP will no longer grant or renew accreditations under the terminated program. A laboratory currently accredited under the LAP will remain accredited until the expiration of its current accreditation unless earlier termination is requested by the laboratory. E.O. 12866: This action has been determined to be not significant under Executive Order 12866. Dated: August 25, 2010. Harry S. Hertz, Director, Baldrige National Quality Program.

ACTION: Issuance of permit. AGENCY: Notice is hereby given that Joseph Hightower, Ph.D., North Carolina Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit, North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC 27695, has been issued a permit to take shortnose sturgeon (Acipenser brevirostrum) for scientific research. srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: The permit and related documents are available for review ADDRESSES: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:33 Aug 30, 2010 Jkt 220001 upon written request or by appointment in the following office(s): • Permits, Conservation and Education Division, Office of Protected Resources, NMFS, 1315 East-West Highway, Room 13705, Silver Spring, MD 20910; phone (301) 713–2289; fax (301) 713–0376; and • Southeast Region, NMFS, 263 13th Ave South, St. Petersburg, FL 33701; phone (727)824–5312; fax (727)824– 5309. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Malcolm Mohead or Colette Cairns, (301)713–2289. On March 12, 2010, notice was published in the Federal Register (75 FR 11862) that a request for a scientific research permit to take shortnose sturgeon had been submitted by the above-named individual. The requested permit has been issued under the authority of the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (ESA; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) and the regulations governing the taking, importing, and exporting of endangered and threatened species (50 CFR parts 222–226). The applicant is authorized to conduct a five-year scientific study determining the presence, abundance and distribution of shortnose sturgeon in North Carolina rivers (Chowan, Roanoke, and Cape Fear) and estuaries (Albemarle Sound). The permit authorizes non-lethal sampling with anchored gill nets, capturing up to 15 shortnose sturgeon annually from the Chowan and Cape Fear River Basins and Albemarle Sound. Similar activities capturing up to 25 shortnose sturgeon from the Roanoke River Basin will also be conducted each year. A sub-set of up to five adults or sub-adults from each river and Albemarle Sound will be anesthetized and implanted with internal sonic transmitters annually. Each will be captured, measured, weighed, sampled for genetic tissue analysis, and PIT tagged. Tracking sturgeon at fixed receiver stations will take place providing information about movement, seasonal distribution and habitat use. As required by the ESA, issuance of this permit was based on a finding that such permit: (1) was applied for in good faith; (2) will not operate to the disadvantage of such endangered species; and (3) is consistent with the purposes and policies set forth in section 2 of the ESA.
