Margin 1.06 percent Assessment Rates Upon completion of this administrative review, the Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b), the Department calculates an assessment rate for each importer of the subject merchandise. Upon issuance of the final results of this administrative review, if any importer (or customer)specific assessment rates calculated in the final results are above de minimis (i.e., at or above 0.5 percent), the Department will issue appraisement instructions directly to CBP to assess antidumping duties on appropriate entries. To determine whether the duty assessment rates covering the period were de minimis, in accordance with the requirement set forth in 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we calculated importer (or customer)-specific ad valorem rates by aggregating the dumping margins calculated for all U.S. sales to that importer (or customer) and dividing this amount by the entered value of the sales to that importer (or customer). The Department will issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP within 15 days of publication of the final results of this review. hsrobinson on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES Cash Deposit Rates The following deposit requirements will be effective upon completion of the final results of this administrative review for all shipments of stainless steel bar from Germany entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(1) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate listed above for each specific company will be the rate established in the final results of this review, except if a rate is less than 0.5 percent, and therefore de minimis, the cash deposit will be zero; (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not listed above, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company–specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original less–than-fair– value investigation, but the producer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recent period for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) if neither the VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:55 Feb 02, 2006 Jkt 208001 exporter nor the manufacturer is a firm covered in this review, the cash deposit rate will be 16.96 percent, the ‘‘all others’’ rate established in the LTFV Final. Public Comment Any interested party may request a hearing within 30 days of publication of this notice. A hearing, if requested, will be 37 days after the publication of this notice, or the first business day thereafter. Issues raised in the hearing will be limited to those raised in the case and rebuttal briefs. Interested parties may submit case briefs within 30 days of the date of publication of this notice. Rebuttal briefs, which must be limited to issues raised in the case briefs, may be filed not later than 35 days after the date of publication of this notice. Parties who submit case briefs or rebuttal briefs in this proceeding are requested to submit with each argument (1) a statement of the issue and (2) a brief summary of the argument with an electronic version included. The Department will issue the final results of this administrative review, including the results of its analysis of issues raised in any such written briefs or hearing, within 120 days of publication of these preliminary results. Notification to Importers This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: January 27, 2006. David M. Spooner, Assistant Secretaryfor Import Administration.

ACTION: Notification of a proposal for Exempted Fishing Permits to conduct experimental fishing; request for comments. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Assistant Regional Administrator for Sustainable Fisheries, Northeast Region, NMFS (Assistant 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 Assistant 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 Sea Scallop Fishery Management Plan (FMP). However, further review and consultation may be necessary before a final determination is made to issue the EFP. Therefore, NMFS announces that the Assistant Regional Administrator proposes to recommend an EFP be issued that would allow vessels to conduct fishing operations that are otherwise restricted by the regulations governing the fisheries of the Northeastern United States. This EFP would exempt participating vessels from the 18,000 lb (8,165 kg) sea scallop access area possession limit. Regulations under the MagnusonStevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act require publication of this notification to provide interested parties the opportunity to comment on applications for proposed EFPs. DATES: Comments on this document must be received on or before February 21, 2006. ADDRESSES: Written comments should be sent to Patricia A. Kurkul, Regional Administrator, NMFS, Northeast Regional Office, 1 Blackburn Drive, Gloucester, MA 01930.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Coonamessett Farm submitted an application for an EFP on December 27, 2005, for an experiment funded by the Sea Scallop Research Set Aside Program. The experiment would investigate whether requiring vessels to land scallops in a standardized scallop bag would be a viable method of determining compliance with the Sea Scallop Access Area possession limit. This EFP is requested to allow vessels testing a standardized scallop bag to exceed Sea Scallop Access Area possession limits, which are currently set at 18,000 lb (8,165 kg) (see 50 CFR 648.60(a)(5)). While the standardized scallop bag will be used in numbers intended to achieve the 18,000 lb (8,165 kg) possession limit, it is possible that on some experimental trips the use of the standardized bag will result in a landings in excess of 18,000 lb (8,165 kg). To test the standardized bag, Coonamessett Farm proposes to conduct 24 sea scallop access area trips. Prior to departure, each vessel will be issued a number of bags and required to land its catch of scallops in them. The catch from each trip will be examined to determine if a standardized bag can be used to achieve the 18,000 lb (8,165 kg) possession limit. The 24 trips will occur throughout the Access Area open seasons in the Georges Bank Access Areas and the Hudson Canyon Access Area. The specific design and construction of the standardized scallop bag will be determined prior to the issuance of the EFPs. Authority: 16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq. Dated: January 31, 2006. Alan D.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Coonamessett Farm submitted an application 
for an EFP on December 27, 2005, for an experiment funded by the Sea 
Scallop Research Set Aside Program. The experiment would investigate

bag would be a viable method of determining compliance with the Sea 
Scallop Access Area possession limit. This EFP is requested to allow 
vessels testing a standardized scallop bag to exceed Sea Scallop Access 
Area possession limits, which are currently set at 18,000 lb (8,165 kg) 
(see 50 CFR 648.60(a)(5)). While the standardized scallop bag will be
