SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES I. Abstract The Annual Wholesale Trade Survey (AWTS) covers employer firms with establishments located in the United States and classified in wholesale trade as defined by the North American Industry Classification System (NAICS). This sector comprises two main types of wholesalers: (1) Merchant wholesalers that sell goods on their own account (including sales offices and sales branches, except retail stores, maintained by manufacturing, refining, or mining enterprises apart from their plants or mines for the purpose of marketing their products) and (2) business to business electronic markets, agents, and brokers that arrange sales and purchases for others generally for a commission or fee. Firms are selected for this survey using a stratified random sample where strata are defined by industry and annual sales size. The sample, consisting of approximately 7,600 wholesale businesses, is selected from the Business Register, which contains all Employer Identification Numbers (EINs) and listed establishment locations. The sample is updated quarterly to reflect employer ‘‘births’’ and ‘‘deaths’’ by adding new employer businesses identified in the Business and Professional Classification Survey and deleting firms and EINs when it is determined they are no longer active. Respondents are separated into three classifications: (1) Merchant wholesale establishments, excluding manufacturers’ sales branches and offices; (2) manufacturers’ sales branches and offices; and (3) agents, brokers, and business to business electronic markets. The first classification is asked to provide sales, e-commerce, inventories, method of inventory valuation, inventories held outside the United States, purchases, and operating expenses. The second classification is asked to provide sales, e-commerce, inventories, method of inventory valuation, inventories held outside the United States, and operating expenses. The third classification is VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:11 Mar 21, 2011 Jkt 223001 asked to provide commissions, sales on their own account, and operating expenses. These data are collected to provide a sound statistical basis for the formation of policy by various government agencies. These data are used to satisfy a variety of public and business needs such as economic market analysis, company performance, and forecasting future demands. Results will be available, at the United States summary level, for selected wholesale industries approximately fourteen months after the end of the reference year. A new sample will be introduced with the 2011 AWTS. It is expected that approximately 60–70% of the companies that are asked to report will be doing so for the first time (and, consequently, 60–70% of the old sample will no longer be asked to report). In order to link estimates from the new and prior samples, we will be asking companies to provide data for 2011 and 2010. The 2012 AWTS and subsequent years will request one year of data until a new sample is once again introduced. An additional change will occur with the 2012 AWTS. We will request data on detailed operating expenses that were previously requested under a separate supplemental mailing (conducted every 5 years). The last supplemental mailing was conducted in conjunction with the 2007 AWTS under OMB No. 0607–0942. While the wholesale portion of that program will be collapsed into the AWTS, we will continue to ask only the additional detailed expense questions every 5 years. These detailed expense questions are only applicable to the merchant wholesale establishments, excluding manufacturers’ sales branches and offices. II. Method of Collection We collect this information by Internet, fax, mail, and telephone. III. Data OMB Control Number: 0607–0195. Form Number: SA–42, SA–42A, SA– 42(MSBO), SA–42A(MSBO), SA– 42(AGBR), SA–42A(AGBR). Type of Review: Regular submission. Affected Public: Wholesale firms located in the United States. Estimated Number of Respondents: 7,600. Estimated Time per Response: 74 minutes (3-year average). Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 9,405 hours (3-year average). Estimated Total Annual Cost: The total cost to respondents is estimated to be $272,839. Respondent’s Obligation: Mandatory.

On November 12, 2010, we rescinded in part the administrative reviews of the antidumping duty orders on ball bearings and parts thereof from France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United Kingdom. See Ball Bearings and Parts Thereof From France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United Kingdom: Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 75 FR 69402 (November 12, 2010).

See Ball Bearings and Parts Thereof From Germany: Initiation of Antidumping Duty ChangedCircumstances Review, 76 FR 10335 (February 24, 2011). The preliminary results of the reviews are currently due no later than March 17, 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 complete the preliminary results within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested and the final results within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. If it is not practicable to complete the review within these time periods, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the preliminary results to a maximum of 365 days after the last day of the anniversary month. We determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of these reviews within the current time limit because of the number of companies and complexity of various issues. Therefore, we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of these reviews by 32 days until April 18, 2011.

PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 15941 The Department has determined that it requires additional time to complete this review. A significant issue has been raised after the Preliminary Results and the Department needs to allow time for parties to provide information on the issue, brief the issue, and provide rebuttal comments. Thus, it is not practicable to complete this review by April 13, 2011, and the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the final results by an additional 60 days to June 12, 2011, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act. However, June 12, 2011, falls on a Sunday, and it is the Department’s longstanding practice to issue a determination the next business day when the statutory deadline falls on a weekend, federal holiday, or any other day when the Department is closed. See Notice of Clarification: Application of ‘‘Next Business Day’’ Rule for Administrative Determination Deadlines Pursuant to the Tariff Act of 1930, As Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005). Accordingly, the deadline for completion of the final results is now no later than June 13, 2011.

France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United Kingdom for 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). On November 12, 2010, we 
rescinded in part the administrative reviews of the antidumping duty 
orders on ball bearings and parts thereof from France, Germany, Italy, 
Japan, and the United Kingdom. See Ball Bearings and Parts Thereof From 
France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United Kingdom: Partial

the completion of the preliminary results of reviews by 45 days. See 
Ball Bearings and Parts Thereof From France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and 
the United Kingdom: Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of 
Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews, 76 FR 2647 (January 14, 2011). 
On February 24, 2011, we also initiated the changed-circumstances 
review of the antidumping duty order on ball bearings and parts thereof 
from Germany and announced our intent to conduct the changed-
circumstances review in the context of the administrative review. See 
Ball Bearings and Parts Thereof From Germany: Initiation of Antidumping 
Duty Changed-Circumstances Review, 76 FR 10335 (February 24, 2011). The 
preliminary results of the reviews are currently due no later than 
March 17, 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 complete the preliminary results 
within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order 
for which a review is requested and the final results within 120 days 
after the date on which the preliminary results are published. If it is 
not practicable to complete the review within these time periods, 
section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the 
time limit for the preliminary results to a maximum of 365 days after 
the last day of the anniversary month.
    We determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary 
results of these reviews within the current time limit because of the 
number of companies and complexity of various issues. Therefore, we are 
extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of these 
reviews by 32 days until April 18, 2011.
    This notice is published in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of
