Preliminary Results of Review and Intent to Revoke in Part the Antidumping Duty Order Pursuant to section 751(d)(1) of the Act, the Department may revoke an antidumping or countervailing duty order, in whole or in part, based on a review under section 751(b) of the Act (i.e., a changed circumstances review). Section 751(b)(1) of the Act requires a changed circumstances review to be conducted upon receipt of a request which shows changed circumstances sufficient to warrant a review. Section 351.222(g)(1) of the Department’s regulations provides that the Department may revoke an order (in whole or in part) based on changed circumstances, if it determines that: (i) producers accounting for substantially all of the production of the domestic like product to which the order (or part of the order to be revoked) pertains have expressed a lack of interest in the relief provided by the order, in whole or in part, or (ii) other changed circumstances are sufficient to warrant revocation exist. Taking into consideration that (1) the petitioners have uniformly expressed that they do not want relief with respect to this particular product, and that (2) there have been no contrary expressions from the remainder of the known LDLP producers, we are notifying the public of our intent to revoke, in part, certain welded large diameter line pipe from Japan. Interested parties wishing to comment on these preliminary results may submit briefs to the Department no later than 15 days after the publication of this notice in the Federal Register. Parties will have 7 days subsequent to this due date to submit rebuttal comments, limited to the issues raised in those briefs. Parties who submit briefs or rebuttal comments in this proceeding are requested to submit with each argument (1) a statement of the issue and (2) a brief summary of the argument (no longer than five pages, including footnotes). Any requests for hearing must be filed within 30 days of the publication of this notice in the Federal Register. All written comments must be submitted in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303, with the exception that only three (3) copies for each case need be served on the Department. Any comments must also be served on all interested parties on the Department’s service list, which is available on our website (http://ia.ita.doc.gov/apo/ index.html). The Department will issue its final results in this changed circumstances review as soon as VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:51 Sep 14, 2006 Jkt 208001 practicable following the above comment period, but not later than 270 days after the date on which the changed circumstances review was initiated, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.216(e), and will publish the results in the Federal Register. If the final partial revocation occurs, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to discontinue the suspension of liquidation for all future entries of merchandise covered by the revocation, and to release any cash deposits or bonds pursuant to 19 CFR 351.222(g)(4). The current requirement for a cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties on all subject merchandise will continue unless and until it is modified pursuant to the final results of this changed circumstances review. This notice is published in accordance with sections 751(b)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.216 and 351.222. Dated: September 11, 2006. David M.

Correction; Steller Sea Lion Protection Economic Survey

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

    The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, National 
Marine Fisheries Service is issuing a correction and clarification of a 
Federal Register notice (71 FR 47177) announcing plans to conduct a 
survey regarding public preferences for potential results of protection 
measures on Steller sea lion populations. The following Abstract 
replaces the one in the aforementioned notice:

I. Abstract

    The Steller sea lion is a listed species under the Endangered 
Species Act of 1973 (16 U.S.C. 35). The public benefits associated with 
the results of protection actions on the endangered Western and 
threatened Eastern stocks of Steller sea lions (Eumetopias jubatus), 
such as population increases, are primarily the result of the non-
consumptive value people attribute to such protection (e.g., active use 
values associated with being able to view Steller sea lions and passive 
use values unrelated to direct human use). Little is known about these 
values, yet such information is needed for decision makers to more 
fully understand the trade-offs involved in choosing among protection 
alternatives and to complement other information available about the 
costs, benefits, and impacts of the protection alternatives.
    The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) plans to conduct a 
survey of U.S. citizens, presenting information on Steller sea lions, 
including information about population trends and current management 
actions and asking respondents for information regarding their 
knowledge of and opinions regarding: Steller sea lions, other marine 
mammals and endangered species, and potential Steller sea lion 
population increases and changes in listing status that might result 
from management. The standard socio-demographic information needed to 
classify respondents will also be collected. The survey will gather a 
sufficient number of responses to estimate the non-consumptive benefits 
associated with the results of protection actions on Steller sea lions. 
This information is currently unavailable, and would be used by 
analysts to supplement existing information available for the 
evaluation of Steller sea lion protection alternatives.''
