Transportation and Related Equipment Technical Advisory Committee; Notice of Open Meeting, 64895-64896 [2011-27017]

Download as PDF emcdonald on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 202 / Wednesday, October 19, 2011 / Notices continuing and timely national statistical data on wholesale trade activity for the period between economic censuses. The AWTS covers employer firms with establishments located in the United States and classified in the Wholesale Trade sector as defined by the 2007 NAICS. The 2011 AWTS will collect data for three components of wholesale activity: Wholesale distributors; manufacturers’ sales branches and offices; and agents, brokers, and electronic markets. For wholesale distributors, the Census Bureau will collect data covering sales, e-commerce sales, year-end inventories held inside and outside the United States, purchases, and total operating expenses. For manufacturers’ sales branches and offices, the Census Bureau will collect data covering annual sales, e-commerce sales, year-end inventories held inside and outside the United States and total operating expenses. For agents, brokers, and electronic markets, the Census Bureau will collect data covering commissions, total operating revenue, gross selling value, and total operating expenses. The Census Bureau has determined that the conduct of this survey is necessary as these data are not available publicly on a timely basis from non-governmental or other government sources. A new sample of firms will be selected for 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. Firms were selected for the AWTS survey using a stratified random sample based on industry groupings and annual sales size. We will provide report forms to the firms covered by this survey in January 2012 and will require their responses within 30 days after receipt. Firms’ responses to the AWTS are required by law (Title 13 U.S.C. Sections 182, 224, and 225). The sample of firms selected will provide, with measurable reliability, statistics on annual sales, e-commerce sales, purchases, total operating expenses, year-end inventories held both inside and outside the Unites States, commissions, total operating revenue, and gross selling value, for 2011. The data collected in this survey will be similar to that collected in the past and within the general scope and nature of those inquiries covered in the VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:34 Oct 18, 2011 Jkt 226001 economic census. These data are collected to provide a sound statistical basis for the formation of policy by various government agencies. Results will be available for use for a variety of public and business needs, such as economic and market analysis, company performance, and forecasting future demand. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person is required to respond to, nor shall a person be subject to a penalty for failure to comply with, a collection of information subject to the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) unless that collection of information displays a current valid Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control number. In accordance with the PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501–3521, OMB approved the AWTS under OMB control number 0607–0195. Based upon the foregoing, I have directed that the annual survey be conducted for the purpose of collecting these data. Dated: October 12, 2011. Robert M. Groves, Director, Bureau of the Census.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: [FR Doc. 2011–27081 Filed 10–18–11; 8:45 am] Background BILLING CODE 3510–DS–P At the request of interested parties, the Department of Commerce (the Department) initiated an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on diamond sawblades and parts thereof from the People’s Republic of China for the period January 23, 2009, through October 31, 2010. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 75 FR 81565 (December 28, 2010). On July 15, 2011, we extended the due date for the completion of the preliminary results of review by 85 days. See Diamond Sawblades and Parts Thereof from the People’s Republic of China: Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 76 FR 41759 (July 15, 2011). The preliminary results of the review are currently due no later than October 26, 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 this review within the original time limit because of the complexity of issues involving the selection of surrogate country and surrogate values and because of the extensions we have granted at the request of various parties during the course of the review to submit information to the record. Therefore, we are extending the time period for issuing the preliminary results of this review by 35 days until November 30, 2011. This notice is published in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2). PO 00000 Frm 00005 Dated: October 12, 2011.
