Announcement of Meeting to Explore Feasibility of Establishing a NIST/Industry Consortium on Neutron Measurements for Soft Materials Manufacturing
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) invites interested parties to attend a pre-consortium meeting on June 2-3, 2011 to be held on the NIST campus. The goal of the one-day meeting is to evaluate industry interest in creating a NIST/industry consortium focused on advanced neutron-based probes for soft materials. The goals of such a consortium would include the development of neutron-based measurements that would address critical needs for manufacturers of soft materials such as polymers, complex fluids, and protein-based materials. Advances in neutron-based measurement science are anticipated through the development of sample environments that closely mimic manufacturing processes, measurement methods to probe and analyze complex mixtures, and data analysis models that support routine measurements with high information content. The consortium would be administered by NIST. Consortium research and development would be conducted by NIST staff members along with at least one technical representative from each participating member company. CRADA contributions for participation in the consortium would be on the order of Twenty Thousand ($20,000) per year. The initial term of the consortium is intended to be three years.
Certain Frozen Fish Fillets From the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of the Seventh Antidumping Duty Administrative Review
On September 29, 2010, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') published a notice of initiation of antidumping and countervailing duty administrative reviews and requests for revocation in part for certain frozen fish fillets from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam covering the period August 1, 2009, through July 31, 2010. The Department may, however, extend the deadline for completion of the preliminary results of an administrative review to 365 days if it determines it is not practicable to complete the review within the foregoing time period.
Certain Frozen Warmwater Shrimp From the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review
On February 1, 2005, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') published in the Federal Register the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp (``shrimp'') from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (``Vietnam'').\1\ The Department is conducting a new shipper review (``NSR'') of the Order, covering the period of review (``POR'') of February 1, 2010, through July 31, 2010. If these preliminary results are adopted in our final results of review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') to assess antidumping duties on entries of subject merchandise during the POR for which the importer-specific assessment rates are above de minimis.
