Download as PDF 62098 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 194 / Thursday, October 7, 2010 / Notices jdjones on DSK8KYBLC1PROD with NOTICES of a targeted survey, important details will be gathered regarding: (a) The information that drivers possessed prior to and during a storm, including knowledge of observed and forecast weather conditions; (b) sources of weather and road information; (c) any modification of travel and/or commute plans, based on event information; (d) anticipation and perception of storm impacts and severity; and (e) perception and behavioral response to messages conveyed by the NWS and UDOT, along with their satisfaction of information provided. Analyses of the information gathered will focus on driver knowledge, perceptions, and decisionmaking. Ultimately, the results of this survey will provide insight on how the Weather Enterprise may more effectively communicate hazard information to the public in a manner which leads to improved response (i.e., change travel times, modes, etc.). With a sufficient level of behavior change, it should be possible to improve safety and reduce the costs associated with weather-related congestion and associated delays. Additionally, the project will shed light upon the interrelationship between meteorological phenomena, road conditions, and their combined impact on travel. Affected Public: Individuals or households. Frequency: One time. Respondent’s Obligation: Voluntary. OMB Desk Officer: OIRA_Submission@omb.eop.gov. Copies of the above information collection proposal can be obtained by calling or writing Diana Hynek, Departmental Paperwork Clearance Officer, (202) 482–0266, Department of Commerce, Room 6616, 14th and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230 (or via the Internet at dHynek@doc.gov).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: ADDRESSES: I. Abstract This request is for a renewal of a currently approved information collection. NOAA has established large-scale depth-based management areas, referred to as Groundfish Conservation Areas (GCAs), where groundfish fishing is prohibited or restricted. These areas were specifically designed to reduce the catch of species while allowing healthy fisheries to continue in areas and with gears where little incidental catch of overfished species is likely to occur. Because NOAA needs methods to effectively enforce area restrictions, certain commercial fishing vessels are required to install and use a vessel monitoring system (VMS) that automatically sends hourly position reports. Exemptions from the reporting requirement are available for inactive vessels or vessels fishing outside the monitored area. The vessels are also required to declare what gear will be used. PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 To ensure the integrity of the GCAs and Rockfish Conservation Areas (RCA), a pilot VMS program was implemented on January 1, 2004. The pilot program required vessels registered to Pacific Coast groundfish fishery limited entry permits to carry and use VMS transceiver units while fishing off the coasts of Washington, Oregon and California. On January 1, 2007, the VMS program coverage was expanded to include all open access fisheries in addition to the limited entry fisheries. A change request to expand the available fishery declarations will be published as part of a final rule, RIN 0648–AY68, in late 2010. As stated in the proposed rule for RIN 0648–AY68 (75 FR 53380, August 31, 2010), the public reporting burden for the changes to the declaration reporting system are not expected to change the public reporting burden. II. Method of Collection The installation/activation reports are available over the Internet. Due to the need for the owner’s signature, installation reports must be faxed or mailed to NMFS. Hourly position reports are automatically sent from VMS transceivers installed aboard vessels. Exemption reports and declaration reports are submitted via a toll-free telephone number. III.

On September 17, 2010, the Department published a notice extending the time limit for the final results of this administrative review by 30 days, i.e., until October 12, 2010.2 The Department now finds that it is not practicable to complete the final results of the administrative review of chlorinated isocyanurates from the PRC before the current deadline due to complicated surrogate value issues, including the most appropriate methodology for valuing labor, for the final results. We find that additional time is needed to complete these final results. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, we are extending the time period for issuing the final results of the administrative review by an additional 30 days. As a result, these final results are due on Wednesday, November 10, 2010, 180 days after the date on which the preliminary results were published.

See Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Brazil, India, and Thailand: Notice of Initiation of Administrative Reviews, 75 FR 17693 (Apr. 7, 2010). On July 9, 2010, the Department selected respondents for individual examination in the India and Thailand reviews and issued questionnaires to them.1 See the July 9, 2010, memoranda from Elizabeth Eastwood to James Maeder entitled, ‘‘2009–2010 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from India: Selection of Respondents for Individual Review,’’ and ‘‘2009–2010 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review on Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Thailand: Selection of Respondents for Individual Review.’’ We received responses to these questionnaires in August and September 2010. Extension of Time Limit of Preliminary Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires the Department to make a preliminary determination in an administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order or finding for which a review is requested. Consistent with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department may extend the 245-day period to 365 days if it is not practicable to complete the review within a 245-day period. The deadline for the preliminary results of these administrative reviews is currently November 1, 2010.2 The Department determines that completion of the preliminary results of these reviews within the statutory time period is not practicable because it is examining: (1) An allegation of a particular market situation for the respondents in Thailand; and (2) a cost allegation from the petitioner for Apex Exports in India. 1 The Department rescinded the administrative review of certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Brazil on June 10, 2010.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    This request is for a renewal of a currently approved information 
collection.
    NOAA has established large-scale depth-based management areas, 
referred to as Groundfish Conservation Areas (GCAs), where groundfish 
fishing is prohibited or restricted. These areas were specifically 
designed to reduce the catch of species while allowing healthy 
fisheries to continue in areas and with gears where little incidental 
catch of overfished species is likely to occur. Because NOAA needs 
methods to effectively enforce area restrictions, certain commercial 
fishing vessels are required to install and use a vessel monitoring 
system (VMS) that automatically sends hourly position reports. 
Exemptions from the reporting requirement are available for inactive 
vessels or vessels fishing outside the monitored area. The vessels are 
also required to declare what gear will be used.
    To ensure the integrity of the GCAs and Rockfish Conservation Areas 
(RCA), a pilot VMS program was implemented on January 1, 2004. The 
pilot program required vessels registered to Pacific Coast groundfish 
fishery limited entry permits to carry and use VMS transceiver units 
while fishing off the coasts of Washington, Oregon and California. On 
January 1, 2007, the VMS program coverage was expanded to include all 
open access fisheries in addition to the limited entry fisheries.
    A change request to expand the available fishery declarations will 
be published as part of a final rule, RIN 0648-AY68, in late 2010. As 
stated in the proposed rule for RIN 0648-AY68 (75 FR 53380, August 31, 
2010), the public reporting burden for the changes to the declaration 
reporting system are not expected to change the public reporting 
burden.

II. Method of Collection

    The installation/activation reports are available over the 
Internet. Due to the need for the owner's signature, installation 
reports must be faxed or mailed to NMFS. Hourly position reports are 
automatically sent from VMS transceivers installed aboard vessels. 
Exemption reports and declaration reports are submitted via a toll-free 
telephone number.
