Because the mission now runs from Friday through Tuesday, a travel day has been added on Sunday since no business appointments can be made for that day. The proposed tentative time table is provided below. In addition, recruitment for this Mission began at the end of March, and some pending applicants have indicated a need to finalize their schedules and travel arrangements. Rather than wait until after the August 15, 2011 deadline to vet all applicants and make selection decisions, CS is amending the Notice to allow for vetting and selection decisions on a rolling basis beginning July 25, 2011, until the maximum of 20 participants is selected. Although applications will be accepted through August 15th (and after that date if space remains and scheduling constraints permit), interested U.S. biotechnology and life science firms and trade organizations which have not already submitted an application are encouraged to do so as soon as possible.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Authority: 15 U.S.C. 7301 et seq., 15 CFR Part 270. Background The National Construction Safety Team Act (Act), 15 U.S.C. 7301 et seq., authorizes the Director of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to establish investigative teams (Teams) to assess building performance and emergency response and evacuation procedures in the wake of any building failure that has resulted in substantial loss of life or that posed significant potential of substantial loss of life. The purpose of investigations by Teams is to improve the safety and structural integrity of buildings in the United States. As stated in the statute, a Team PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 42683 will (1) Establish the likely technical cause or causes of the building failure; (2) evaluate the technical aspects of evacuation and emergency response procedures; (3) recommend, as necessary, specific improvements to building standards, codes, and practices based on the findings made pursuant to (1) and (2); and (4) recommend any research and other appropriate actions needed to improve the structural safety of buildings, and improve evacuation and emergency response procedures, based on the findings of the investigation. NIST has promulgated regulations implementing the Act, which are found at 15 CFR Part 270. NIST sent a preliminary reconnaissance team to collect information and data related to the tornado that touched down in Joplin, MO, on May 22, 2011. Based on the recommendations of the preliminary reconnaissance team and evaluation of the criteria listed in the regulations implementing the Act, specifically in 15 CFR 270.102, on June 29, 2011, the Director of the NIST, United States Department of Commerce, established a Team to study the effects of the tornado that touched down in Joplin, MO, on May 22.

Background

    On May 31, 2011, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'')

cylinders from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''). See High 
Pressure Steel Cylinders From the People's Republic of China: 
Initiation of Countervailing Duty Investigation, 76 FR 33239 (June 8, 
2011). Currently, the preliminary determination is due no later than 
August 4, 2011.

Postponement of Due Date for Preliminary Determination

    Section 703(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the 
Act''), requires the Department to issue the preliminary determination 
in a countervailing duty investigation within 65 days after the date on 
which the Department initiated the investigation, However, if the 
Department concludes that the parties concerned in the investigation 
are cooperating in the investigation and determines that the 
investigation is extraordinarily complicated, section 703(c)(1)(B) of 
the Act allows the Department to postpone making the preliminary 
determination until no later than 130 days after the date on which the 
administering authority initiated the investigation.
    The Department has determined that the parties involved in the 
proceeding are cooperating and that the investigation is 
extraordinarily complicated. See section 703(c)(1)(B) of the Act. 
Specifically, the Department is currently investigating alleged subsidy 
programs involving loans, grants, income tax incentives, and the 
provision of goods or services for less than adequate remuneration. Due 
to the number and complexity of the alleged countervailable subsidy 
practices being investigated, it is not practicable to complete the 
preliminary determination of this investigation within the original 
time limit (i.e., August 4, 2011).
    Therefore, in accordance with section 703(c)(1)(B) of the Act, we 
are fully extending the due date for the preliminary determination to 
no later than 130 days after the day on which the investigation was 
initiated. However, as that date falls on a Saturday (i.e., October 8, 
2011), and October 10, 2011, is a Federal Holiday, the deadline for 
completion of the preliminary determination is now Tuesday, October 11, 
2011, the next business day.
    This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 703(c)(2) 
of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(f).

     Dated: July 13, 2011.
