New England Fishery Management Council; Public Meeting, 49703-49704 [E7-17088]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 167 / Wednesday, August 29, 2007 / Notices In Timken, the Federal Circuit held that, pursuant to section 516A(e) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), the Department must publish a notice of a court decision that is not ‘‘in harmony’’ with a Department determination, and must suspend liquidation of entries pending a ‘‘conclusive’’ court decision. Timken, 393 F.2d at 341. Because NAFTA panels step into the shoes of the courts they are replacing, they must apply the law of the national court that would otherwise review the administrative determination. Therefore, we are publishing notice that the Panel’s Notice of Final Panel Action and its NAFTA Final Decision are not in harmony with the Department’s Final Results. This notice is published in fulfillment of the publication requirements of Timken. Accordingly, the Department will continue the suspension of liquidation of the subject merchandise pending the expiration of the period for requesting an Extraordinary Challenge Committee (‘‘ECC’’). If an ECC request is not filed, or if an ECC request is filed, and the Panel’s decision is upheld, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to liquidate the subject merchandise without regard to dumping duties. This notice is issued and published in accordance with section 516A(c)(1) of the Act. Dated: August 21, 2007. David M. Spooner, Assistant Secretary for Import Administration. [FR Doc.
