FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kristen Johnson and John Hoffner (the Russian Federation (Russia)) or Ariela Garvett (the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago (Trinidad and Tobago)), AD/ CVD Operations, Offices III and IV, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–4793, (202) 482–3315, and (202) 482–3609, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with NOTICES1 Background On July 20, 2021, the Department of Commerce (Commerce) initiated countervailing duty (CVD) investigations of imports of urea ammonium nitrate solutions (UAN) from Russia and Trinidad and Tobago.1 Currently, the preliminary determinations are due no later than September 23, 2021. Postponement of the Preliminary Determinations Section 703(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires Commerce to issue the preliminary determination in a CVD investigation within 65 days after the date on which Commerce initiated the investigation. However, section 703(c)(1) of the Act permits Commerce to postpone the preliminary determination until no later than 130 days after the date on which Commerce initiated the investigation if: (A) The petitioner makes a timely request for a postponement; or (B) Commerce concludes that the parties concerned are cooperating, that the investigation is extraordinarily complicated, and that additional time is necessary to make a preliminary determination. Under 19 CFR 351.205(e), the petitioner must submit a 1 See Urea Ammonium Nitrate Solutions from the Russian Federation and the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago: Initiation of Countervailing Duty Investigations, 86 FR 40004 (July 26, 2021). VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:43 Aug 23, 2021 Jkt 253001 request for postponement 25 days or more before the scheduled date of the preliminary determination and must state the reasons for the request. Commerce will grant the request unless it finds compelling reasons to deny the request. On August 16, 2021, the petitioner 2 submitted a timely request that Commerce postpone the preliminary determinations of the CVD investigations.3 The petitioner stated that it requests postponement to provide adequate time for Commerce to receive and fully analyze the questionnaire responses, issue supplemental questionnaires, and prepare accurate preliminary determinations.4 In accordance with 19 CFR 351.205(e), the petitioner has stated the reasons for requesting a postponement of the preliminary determinations, and Commerce finds there are no compelling reason to deny the requests. Therefore, in accordance with section 703(c)(1)(A) of the Act, Commerce is postponing the deadline for the preliminary determinations to no later than 130 days after the date on which these investigations were initiated, i.e., November 29, 2021.5 Pursuant to section 705(a)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(1), the deadline for the final determinations of these investigations will continue to be 75 days after the date of the preliminary determinations, unless postponed at a later date. This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 703(c)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(f)(1). Dated: August 18, 2021. Ryan Majerus, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Policy and Negotiations.

Commerce’s practice dictates that where a deadline falls on a weekend or federal holiday, the appropriate deadline is the next business day.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: I. Abstract The Bayh-Dole Act (35 U.S.C. 18) and its implementing regulations (37 CFR 401) allow for recipients of federal research funding (Contractors) to retain ownership of inventions developed under federal funding agreements. In exchange, the government retains certain rights to the invention, including a world-wide right to use by or on behalf of the U.S. government. The law also requires the Contractor to obtain PO 00000 Frm 00017 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 47297 permission for certain actions and fulfill reporting requirements including: a. Initial reporting of invention. b. Decision to retain title to invention. c. Filing of patent protection. d. Evidence of government support clause within patents. e. Submission of a license confirming the government’s rights. f. Notice if the Contractor is going to discontinue the pursuit or continuance of patent protection. g. Information related to the development and utilization of invention. h. Permission to assign to a third party; and i. Permission to waive domestic manufacturing requirements. This information is used for a variety of reasons. It allows the government to identify technologies to which the government has rights to use without additional payment or licensing. This acts as a time and cost-saving mechanism to avoid unnecessary negotiating and payment. It also provides data for calculation of return on investment (ROI) from federal funding and identifies successful research programs. Thirdly, it allows the government the opportunity to timely protect inventions which the Contractor declines title or discontinues patent protection. Historically, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has collected this information via their on-line portal, iEdison; however, the responsibility for this data collection will be taken over by NIST. Agencies that do not register with iEdison are required to collect this information independently. II. Method of Collection Information will be electronically collected through the online system iEdison. III. Data OMB Control Number: 0693–XXXX. Form Number(s): None. Type of Review: Regular submission, new information collection. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit organizations; Not-for-profit institutions; State, Local, or Tribal government. Estimated Number of Respondents: 3063. Estimated Time per Response: Invention Records: 6 hours. Patent Records: 3.5 hours. Utilization Records 4.5 hours. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: Invention Records: 18,378 hours. Patent Records: 10,720 hours. Utilization Records: 13,783 hours. Estimated Total Annual Cost to Public: $0.
