Economic data are the Census Bureau’s primary program commitment during nondecennial census years. The 2012 Economic Census covering the Wholesale Trade sector (as defined by the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS)) will measure the economic activity of more than 450,000 establishments. The information collected will produce basic statistics by kind of business on the number of establishments, sales, payroll, and employment. It will also yield a variety of subject statistics, including sales by product line, sales by class of customer, and other industryspecific measures. Primary strategies for reducing burden in Census Bureau economic data collections are to increase reporting through standardized questionnaires and broader electronic data collection methods. II. Method of Collection Mail Selection Procedures Establishments in the Wholesale Trade sector of the economic census will be selected from the Census Bureau’s Business Register for a mail canvass. To be eligible for selection, an establishment will be required to satisfy the following conditions: (i) It must be classified in the Wholesale Trade sector; (ii) it must be an active operating establishment of a multi-establishment firm (i.e., a firm that operates at more than one physical location), or it must be a single-establishment firm with payroll (i.e., a firm operating at only one physical location); and (iii) it must be located in one of the 50 States or the District of Columbia. Mail selection procedures will distinguish the following groups of establishments: 1. Establishments of MultiEstablishment Firms All active operating establishments of multi-establishment firms will be included in the mail component of the potential respondent universe. We estimate that the 2012 Economic Census mail canvass for the Wholesale Trade sector will include approximately 134,000 establishments of multiestablishment firms. mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES 2. Single-Establishment Firms With Payroll All single-establishment firms having annualized payroll (from Federal administrative records) will be included in the mail component of the potential respondent universe.

SUMMARY: On July 15, 2010, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) published Silicon Metal from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results and Preliminary Rescission, in Part, of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 75 FR 41143 (July 15, 2010) (‘‘Preliminary Results’’). The period of review (‘‘POR’’) is June 1, 2008, through May 31, 2009. The Department received a timely request from Petitioner, Globe Metallurgical Inc. (‘‘Globe’’), in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b), for an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on silicon metal from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) for three companies: Datong Jinneng Industrial Silicon Co., Ltd. (‘‘Datong Jinneng’’),1 Jiangxi Gangyuan Silicon Industry Co., Ltd. (‘‘Jiangxi Gangyuan’’),2 and Shanghai Jinneng International Trade Co., Ltd. (‘‘Shanghai Jinneng’’). The Department also received a timely request from Shanghai Jinneng and Datong Jinneng (Shanghai Jinneng’s affiliated producer of subject merchandise) for an administrative review of Shanghai Jinneng. On July 29, 2009, the Department published a notice of initiation of an antidumping duty mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: 1 The abbreviation ‘‘Inc.’’ incorrectly appeared after ‘‘Datong Jinneng Industrial Silicon Co.’’ in the Initiation Notice. The abbreviation ‘‘Ltd.’’ should have been used. 2 We have used the abbreviation ‘‘Co.’’ rather than ‘‘Company’’, which was used in the Initiation Notice, because ‘‘Co.’’ is used in the Automated Customs System Module.

The Department has not obtained any evidence to contradict this preliminary finding, and no interested parties commented on the finding. Accordingly, we are rescinding the review with respect to Datong Jinneng and Jiangxi Gangyuan. Consequently, the administrative review covers one respondent, Shanghai Jinneng. We invited interested parties to comment on our Preliminary Results. Based on our analysis of the comments received, we made certain changes to our margin calculation for Shanghai Jinneng. The final dumping margin for this review is listed in the ‘‘Final Results Margins’’ section below. DATES: Effective Date: January 19, 2011.

Background On July 15, 2010, the Department published its Preliminary Results in the antidumping duty administrative review of silicon metal from the PRC. For the final results, Globe requested a hearing with the Department on August 16, 2010. Shanghai Jinneng and Globe submitted briefs and rebuttal briefs on August 23, 2010, and September 6, 2010, respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On June 30, 2010, the U.S. Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') published a notice of initiation of the administrative 
review of the antidumping duty order on certain welded carbon steel 
pipe and tube from Turkey covering the period May 1, 2009, through 
April 30, 2010. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 75 FR 37759 
(June 30, 2010). The preliminary results are currently due no later 
than January 30, 2011.

Extension of Time Limit for 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 
within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order 
for which a review is requested. Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act 
further states that if it is not practicable to complete the review 
within the time period specified, the administering authority may 
extend the 245-day period to issue its preliminary results to up to 120 
days.
    We determine that completion of the preliminary results of this 
review within the 245-day period is not practicable because we have 
complex technical issues relating to quarterly cost and affiliated 
parties, which require additional information and analysis for this 
administrative review. Due to these reasons and in accordance with 
section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act, we are extending the time period for 
issuing the preliminary results of the review by 120 days. The 
preliminary results are now
