See Letter from Mexinox, titled ‘‘Stainless Steel Sheet and Strip in Coils from Mexico— Withdrawal of Hearing Request,’’ dated September 17, 2010. On November 17, 2010, we issued a letter to petitioners notifying them that we were rejecting their Case Brief because it contained new information regarding the U.S. entities that petitioners believe are purchasers of certain merchandise. Also on November 17, 2010, we issued a letter to Mexinox stating that we were rejecting its Rebuttal Brief because it also contained new information regarding the U.S. entities that petitioners believe are purchasers of certain merchandise.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On March 24, 2010, the U.S. Chief Technology Officer and Associate Director for Technology in the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, Aneesh Chopra, announced the establishment of a Sub-Committee on Standards under the National Science and Technology Council’s Committee of Technology. (http:// www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2010/03/24/ providing-leadership-standards- jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:23 Dec 07, 2010 Jkt 223001 address-national-challenges). The SubCommittee includes leaders of executive branch agencies and commissions that have an interest in, or are involved with, technical standards. It is co-chaired by Patrick Gallagher (Director, National Institute of Standards and Technology, U.S. Department of Commerce). Information about agencies participating in this Sub-Committee, and its charter is available at: http://www.standards.gov/ standards_gov/ nstcsubcommitteeonstandards.cfm. By examining the various methods that Federal agencies use to engage in standards-development activities in partnership with the private sector, the Sub-Committee on Standards intends to develop information on how Federal agencies may engage more effectively in the standardization system in a manner that is consistent with the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 1 and the Office of Management and Budget Circular A– 119.2 In support of this objective, the Sub-Committee is interested in perspectives on (1) the effectiveness of the methods Federal agencies have used to engage in standards-setting activities by identifying which methods have enhanced or limited the public-private standards-setting processes; (2) the effectiveness of Federal agencies coordination with the private sector; and (3) the adequacy and availability of Federal resources; and (4) other issues that arise and are considered during the standards setting process which impact the process, and the timeliness, adoption and use of the resulting standards. Request for Information The objective of this request is to inform the development of case studies that will examine the effectiveness of Federal agencies’ participation in standards-setting efforts led by the private sector. The case studies would provide agencies information on lessons learned from Federal agency engagement in standards development for technologies that are complex, multidisciplinary, exhibit system-type characteristics, and involve multiple government agencies, and addressed specific national priorities. Issues impacting U.S. competitiveness such as the interplay of standards with 1 National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995, Public Law 104–113, 110 Stat. 775— 784 (1996). 2 OMB Circular A–119 Revised, Federal Participation in the Development and Use of Voluntary Consensus Standards and in Conformity Assessment Activities (rev.

PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 76397 intellectual property, competition, and innovation are also significant considerations in these technology areas. These case studies may inform decisions about Federal agencies’ engagement in standardization for technologies with similar characteristics. The questions below are intended to help frame the issues and should not be construed as a limitation on comments that parties may submit. Comments containing references, studies, research, and other empirical data that are not widely published should include copies of the referenced materials. All comments will be made publicly available. The Sub-Committee on Standards is specifically interested in comments that address the questions below as they relate to the following technologies: 1. Smart Grid. 2. Health Information Technology. 3. Cyber Security. 4. Emergency Communications Interoperability. 5. Radioactivity Detectors and Radiation Monitors (ANSI N42.3x and N42.4x). 6. Other technologies involving significant Federal agency participation in standards setting. For the purposes of this notice, the term ‘‘standards’’ and the phrase ‘‘standards setting’’ is used in a generic manner to cover both standards and conformity assessment development. State and local governments, standardssetting organizations, industry, consumers, manufacturers, solution providers, and other stakeholders are invited to respond. Responses should identify the technologies involved as appropriate. Standards-Setting Processes, Reasons for Participation and the Benefits of Standardization Emerging technologies offer great potential for delivering new and improved products and services in the global economy. Standards can enable further innovation and enhance the value of these new technologies. Federal law and associated policy guidance has expressed a general preference for Federal agencies to rely on voluntary consensus standards, in lieu of government unique standards, through the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 and Office of Management and Budget Circular A– 119, which encourage agency staff to participate in standards-development activities led by the private sector, as appropriate.

the preliminary results of the administrative review of the antidumping 
duty order on stainless steel sheet and strip in coils (S4 in coils) 
from Mexico for the period July 1, 2008, through June 30, 2009. See 
Stainless Steel Sheet and Strip in Coils From Mexico; Preliminary 
Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 75 FR 47780 (August 
9, 2010) (Preliminary Results). In the Preliminary Results, we invited

    On September 9, 2010, the Department received a request from 
petitioners to extend the deadline to submit rebuttal briefs and on 
September 13, 2010, the Department granted this request. Petitioners 
timely submitted their rebuttal brief on September 15, 2010. See Letter

Letter from Mexinox, titled ``Stainless Steel Sheet and Strip in Coils 
from Mexico--Withdrawal of Hearing Request,'' dated September 17, 2010.
    On November 17, 2010, we issued a letter to petitioners notifying 
them that we were rejecting their Case Brief because it contained new 
information regarding the U.S. entities that petitioners believe are 
purchasers of certain merchandise. Also on November 17, 2010, we issued 
a letter to Mexinox stating that we were rejecting its Rebuttal Brief 
because it also contained new information regarding the U.S. entities

November 23, 2010, petitioners submitted its revised Case Brief. The 
current deadline for the final results of this review is December 7, 
2010.

Extension of Time Limits for Final Results

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), requires the Department to complete the final results of an 
administrative review within 120 days after the date on which the 
preliminary results are published. However, if it is not practicable to 
complete the review within the time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the 
Act allows the Department to extend the 120 day time period for the 
final results up to 180 days.
    The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete this 
review within the original time frame because additional analysis must 
be performed with respect to several complex issues raised by the 
parties, such as Mexinox's cost of production, contemporaneous 
matching, etc. Accordingly, the Department is extending the time limit 
for completion of the final results of this administrative review until 
no later than January 6, 2011, which is 150 days after the date on 
which the preliminary results of review were published.
    This extension is issued and published in accordance with sections 
751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.
