SUMMARY: In response to a request from Globe Metallurgical Inc. (Globe), a domestic producer of silicon metal, the Department of Commerce initiated an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on silicon metal from Brazil. The period of review covers July 1, 2005, through June 30, 2006. Because the respondents reported that they had no sales or shipments to the United States during the period of review, we intend to rescind the review of these companies. EFFECTIVE DATE: December 1, 2006. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Janis Kalnins at (202) 482–1392 or Minoo Hatten at (202) 482–1690, AD/ CVD Operations, Office 5, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20230. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: rmajette on PROD1PC67 with NOTICES1 Background The Department of Commerce (the Department) published an antidumping duty order on silicon metal from Brazil on July 31, 1991. See Notice of Antidumping Duty Order: Silicon Metal from Brazil 56 FR 36135 (July 31, 1991). On July 3, 2006, the Department published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order for the period of review covering July 1, 2005, through June 30, 2006. See Notice of Opportunity to Request Administrative Review of Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation, 71 FR 37890 (July 3, 2006). In accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b)(1), Globe requested an administrative review of this order with respect to the following respondents: Camarago Correa Metais S.A., Companhia Ferroligas de Minas Geraisminasligas, Italmagnesio Nordeste S.A., and Ligas de Aluminio S.A. VerDate Aug<31>2005 13:50 Nov 30, 2006 Jkt 211001 The Department published the initiation of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on silicon metal from Brazil on August 8, 2006. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 71 FR 51573 (August 30, 2006). 6, 2003)), in the event any entries were made during the period of review through intermediaries under U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) case numbers for these respondents, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the all–others rate in effect on the date of entry. Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by this order is silicon metal from Brazil containing at least 96.00 percent but less than 99.99 percent silicon by weight. Also covered by this order is silicon metal from Brazil containing between 89.00 and 96.00 percent silicon by weight but which contains more aluminum than the silicon metal containing at least 96.00 percent but less than 99.99 percent silicon by weight. Silicon metal is currently provided for under subheadings 2804.69.10 and 2804.69.50 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) as a chemical product but is commonly referred to as a metal. Semiconductor grade silicon (silicon metal containing by weight not less than 99.99 percent silicon and provided for in subheading 2804.61.00 of the HTS) is not subject to the order. Although the HTS item numbers are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description remains dispositive. Public Comment Intent to Rescind Administrative Review The Department will rescind an administrative review with respect to an exporter or producer if the Department concludes that there were no entries, exports, or sales of the subject merchandise to the United States during the period of review. See 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3). In response to the Department’s questionnaire, the respondents notified the Department that they had no entries, exports, or sales of the subject merchandise to the United States during the period of review. Globe submitted no information rebutting the respondent’s responses. The Department conducted a customs data query to ascertain whether there were suspended entries of subject merchandise. See November 22, 2006, Memorandum to File entitled ‘‘Silicon Metal from Brazil: Customs Data Query.’’ Based on the data query, there is no evidence of entries or shipments of the subject merchandise by the respondents during the period of review. Therefore, we intend to rescind the review. In accordance with the Department’s clarification of its assessment policy (see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 An interested party may request a hearing within 15 days of publication of this notice of intent to rescind.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice is relevant to the following species and evolutionarily significant units (ESUs) or distinct population segments (DPSs): 1. Chinook salmon (O. tshawytscha): endangered, upper Columbia River spring-run. 2. Steelhead (Oncorhynchus mykiss): threatened, naturally produced and artificiallypropagated Upper Columbia River. Background Section 9 of the ESA and Federal regulations prohibit the ‘‘taking’’ of a species listed as endangered or threatened. The term ‘‘take’’ is defined under the ESA to mean harass, harm, pursue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill, trap, capture, or collect, or to attempt to engage in any such conduct. NMFS may issue permits to take listed species for any act otherwise prohibited by section 9 for scientific purposes or to enhance the propagation or survival of the affected species, under section 10(a)(1)(A) of the ESA. NMFS regulations governing permits for threatened and endangered species are promulgated at 50 CFR 222.307. NEPA requires Federal agencies to conduct an environmental analysis of their proposed actions to determine if the actions may affect the human environment. NMFS expects to take action on two ESA section 10(a)(1)(A) submittals received from the applicants. Therefore NMFS is seeking public input on the scope of the required NEPA analysis, including the range of reasonable alternatives and associated impacts of any alternatives. In an application received on August 27, 2006, the Grant PUD submitted an application to NMFS for an ESA section 10(a)(1)(A) permit for the direct take of ESA-listed upper Columbia River spring Chinook salmon from the White River in Chelan County, in order to carry out an artificial propagation (hatchery) program to enhance the species. The purpose of this program is to prevent the extinction of, conserve, and ultimately restore the naturally spawning White River spring Chinook salmon spawning aggregate, which is part of the Wenatchee population within the upper Columbia River basin. This notice is provided pursuant to section 10(c) of the ESA. NMFS will evaluate the application, associated documents, and comments submitted thereon to determine whether the application meets the requirements of E:\FR\FM\01DEN1.SGM 01DEN1
