ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), as the National Metrology Institute (NMI) of the U.S., is signatory to the Mutual Recognition Arrangement (MRA) of the ´ Comite International des Poids et Mesures (CIPM). Section 6.1 of the MRA provides for cases in which an NMI may designate a laboratory other than itself to participate in CIPM key comparisons on behalf of its nation and to be responsible for disseminating the national measurement standards relevant to that particular measurand. This notice announces that NIST has designated the Cannon Instrument Company (State College, PA) pursuant to the MRA for the measurements of viscosity until January 1, 2013. DATES: NIST’s designation of the Cannon Instrument Company for the measurements of viscosity will expire on January 1, 2013. NIST will consider comments received by that date. ADDRESSES: Comments regarding NIST’s designation of Cannon may be sent to Dr. James Olthoff, National Institute of Standards and Technology, Deputy Director for Measurement Services, Physical Measurement Laboratory, 100 Bureau Drive, Gaithersburg, MD 20899– 8100, or by telephone (301) 975–2220, or by e-mail at james.olthoff@nist.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The MRA established by the CIPM under the authority of the Metre Convention has the following objectives: • To establish the degree of equivalence of national measurement standards maintained by NMIs; • To provide for the mutual recognition of Calibration and Measurement Capability (CMCs) issued by NMIs; SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 • Thereby to provide governments and other parties with a secure technical foundation for wider agreements related to international trade, commerce, and regulatory affairs. The process established to support these objectives includes: • Comparisons of measurement capabilities of participating NMIs and Designated Institutes (DIs), either through CIPM or Regional Metrology Organizations (RMOs) Key Comparisons (KCs); and • Quality systems supporting the continued validity and recognition of CMCs in order to establish mutual confidence in measurements performed by NMIs or their DIs. Signatories to the MRA, which include the U.S., provide information on their nation’s calibration and measurement capabilities to the International Bureau of Weights and Measures (BIPM), which publishes these in a database for use by the international community. The results of key or supplementary comparisons provide quantitative demonstration of the degree of equivalence among participating NMIs and DIs. Such demonstrations provide quantitative evidence of the claims constituted by CMCs. NIST may designate for recognition by the CIPM another U.S. institution that is willing and has the capability to discharge the responsibilities for a specific measurement parameter or parameter range under the terms of the MRA. In designating an institution, an NMI should consider: • Whether the institution is impartial; • Whether the institution offers calibration or other appropriate services in the field to all customers that may request such services; • Whether the institution is prepared to share results of comparisons and internal processes that relate for example to equipment used, environmental conditions, laboratory staff, technical procedures, etc. to appropriate experts in Consultative Committees and/or RMOs technical committees; and • Whether the institution is prepared to provide information on the processes that have been set up for review of Quality Systems and on-site peer review visits. An institution designated by NIST to serve as a U.S. DI will: • Participate, in partnership with NIST, in activities of the CIPM MRA and be bound by the requirements of the MRA under the same conditions under which NIST itself participates in such efforts; E:\FR\FM\13JNN1.SGM 13JNN1

of the new shipper review in the antidumping duty order on innersprings 
from the PRC for Foshan Nanhai Jiujiang Quan Li Spring Hardware Factory 
(``Quan Li'') and Foshan Yongnuo Import & Export Co., Ltd.

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Review

    The Department has determined that the review is extraordinarily 
complicated as the Department must issue, and analyze the responses to, 
additional supplemental questionnaires concerning Quan Li's and 
Yongnuo's sales practices and factors of production. Moreover, the 
Department needs additional time to analyze the bona fide nature of 
Quan Li's and Yongnuo's sales, which includes gathering data from U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection. Based on the timing of the case and the 
additional information that must be gathered, the preliminary results 
of this new shipper review cannot be completed within 180 days.
    Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit for 
completion of the preliminary results of this new shipper review by an 
additional 44 days from the June 1, 2011, deadline. As a result, the 
preliminary results will now be due no later than July 15, 2011. The 
final results continue to be due 90 days after the issuance of the 
preliminary results.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) and 777(i) of the Act.

     Dated: June 1, 2011.
