ACTION: Notice; request for comments. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Administrator, Northeast Region, NMFS (Regional Administrator) has made a preliminary determination that the subject Exempted Fishing Permit (EFP) application contains all the required information and warrants further consideration. The Regional Administrator has also made a preliminary determination that the activities authorized under the EFP would be consistent with the goals and objectives of the Atlantic Herring and Northeast (NE) Multispecies Fishery Management Plans (FMPs). However, further review and consultation may be necessary before a final determination is made to issue the EFP. Therefore, NMFS announces that the Regional Administrator proposes to issue an EFP that would allow up to four vessels at any given time to conduct fishing operations that are otherwise restricted by the regulations governing the fisheries of the Northeastern United States. The EFP would allow for exemptions from certain regulations that implement the emergency action to address haddock bycatch in the 2005 herring fishery for the period August 1 - October 30, 2005. The EFP would exempt vessels from requirements specified at 50 CFR 648.86(a)(3) that restrict Category 1 herring vessels from possessing more than 1,000 lb (0.45 mt) of haddock per trip. The vessels would be part of a study entitled, ‘‘Modifications to Herring Midwater Trawls to Increase Escapement of NonTarget Species (Haddock),’’ which is being coordinated by the Gulf of Maine E:\FR\FM\20JYN1.SGM 20JYN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    Following publication of Certain Iron-Metal Castings from India: 
Final Results of Countervailing Duty Administrative Review, 65 FR 31515 
(May 18, 2000) (Final Results), Calcutta Ferrous Ltd. and Kiswok 
Industries Pvt. Ltd. (collectively respondents) challenged the 
Department's Final Results before the CIT.
    In the underlying administrative review, Calcutta Ferrous Ltd. 
argued that ``in calculating the benefits received by castings 
exporters from export loans, Commerce failed to take into account 
penalty interest paid at interest rates higher than the benchmark.'' 
See Comment 7 of the May 18, 2000, Issues and Decision Memorandum that 
accompanied the Final Results. In Kiswok Industries Pvt. Ltd. and 
Calcutta Ferrous Ltd. v. United States, Slip Op. 04-54 (CIT May 20, 
2004) (Kiswok v. United States), the Court concurred with Calcutta 
Ferrous Ltd.'s position. In Kiswok v. United States, the Court also 
disagreed with the Department's position in the Final Results that 
overdue parts of a loan become a new loan with a new applicable 
interest rate.
    In light of the Court's instructions in Kiswok v. United States, 
the Department, in its redetermination, recalculated the benefit 
Calcutta Ferrous Ltd. realized from its preferential loan(s), taking 
into account all of the interest paid thereon. See Final Results of 
Redetermination on Remand

[[Page 41688]]

Pursuant to Kiswok Industries Pvt. Ltd. v. United States, Slip Op. 04-

    On June 16, 2005, the CIT affirmed the Department's findings in the 
Remand Determination. See Kiswok Industries Pvt. Ltd. and Calcutta 
Ferrous Ltd. v. United States, Slip Op. 05-73 (CIT June 16, 2005).

Suspension of Liquidation

    The CAFC, in Timken, held that the Department must publish notice 
of a decision of the CIT or the CAFC which is not ``in harmony'' with 
the Department's final determination or results. Publication of this 
notice fulfills that obligation. The CAFC also held that the Department 
must suspend liquidation of the subject merchandise until there is a 
``conclusive'' decision in the case. Therefore, pursuant to Timken, the 
Department must continue to suspend liquidation pending the expiration 
of the period to appeal the CIT's June 16, 2005, decision or, if that 
decision is appealed, pending a final decision by the CAFC. The
