New England Fishery Management Council; Public Meeting, 80796-80797 [2010-32216]

Download as PDF 80796 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 246 / Thursday, December 23, 2010 / Notices deadlines for submission of surrogate values, rebuttal comments and case briefs.2 The final results are currently due no later than January 13, 2011. DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE International Trade Administration Extension of Time Limit for the Final Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘Act’’), requires that the Department issue the final results of an administrative review within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. If it is not practicable to complete the review within that time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the deadline for the final results to a maximum of 180 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. Due to the voluminous surrogate value data on the record and the additional time provided to parties to review and submit rebuttal comments and case briefs, the Department finds that it is not practicable to review the surrogate value data and analyze the case brief comments within the scheduled time limit. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, the Department is fully extending the time for the completion of the final results of these reviews to March 14, 2011. We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

AGENCY: Correction and Clarification On December 16, 2010, the Department of Commerce published in the Federal Register the following notice: Proposed Methodology for Respondent Selection in Antidumping Proceedings; Request for Comment, 75 FR 78678 (Dec. 16, 2010) (Respondent Selection Notice). After the publication of the Respondent Selection Notice, we identified an inadvertent error in this notice. Specifically, we inadvertently listed the deadline to file comments as both 30 days and 45 days following publication. The correct deadline for filing comments is 45 days after publication (i.e., January 30, 2011). Because this date falls on a weekend, the deadline for filing comments is January 31, 2011. Dated: December 17, 2010. Gary Taverman, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations. Dated: December 17, 2010. Ronald K. Lorentzen, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
