SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The notice announcing the antidumping duty order on chlorinated isocyanurates from the PRC was published on June 24, 2005. See Notice of Antidumping Duty Order: Chlorinated Isocyanurates From the People’s Republic of China, 70 FR 36561 (June 24, 2005). On December 22, 2008, we received a timely request for a new shipper review from Juancheng Kangtai Chemical Co., Ltd. (‘‘Kangtai’’) in accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(c) and 351.214(d)(2). Kangtai has certified that it produced all of the chlorinated isocyanurates it exported which is the basis for its request for a new shipper review. Pursuant to the requirements set forth in 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(i), in its request for a new shipper review, Kangtai, as an exporter and producer, certified that (1) it did not export chlorinated isocyanurates to the United States during the period of investigation (‘‘POI’’); (2) since the initiation of the investigation, Kangtai has never been affiliated with any company that exported subject merchandise to the United States during the POI; and (3) its export activities were not controlled by the central government of the PRC. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iv), Kangtai submitted documentation establishing the following: (1) The date on which it first shipped chlorinated isocyanurates for export to the United States and the date on which the chlorinated isocyanurates were first entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption; (2) the volume of its first shipment; and (3) the date of its first sale to an unaffiliated customer in the United States. mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES Initiation of New Shipper Review Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the ‘‘Act’’) and 19 CFR 351.214(d)(1), we find that the request submitted by Kangtai meets the threshold requirements for initiation of a new shipper review for shipments of chlorinated isocyanurates from the PRC produced and exported by Kangtai. See Memorandum to the File through Wendy Frankel, Office Director, New Shipper Initiation Checklist, dated January 21, 2009. The POR is June 1, 2008, through November 30, 2008. See 19 CFR 351.214(g)(1)(i)(B). The Department will conduct this review according to the deadlines set forth in section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act. VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:54 Jan 29, 2009 Jkt 217001 It is the Department’s usual practice, in cases involving non-market economies, to require that a company seeking to establish eligibility for an antidumping duty rate separate from the country-wide rate provide evidence of de jure and de facto absence of government control over the company’s export activities. Accordingly, we will issue questionnaires to Kangtai, which will include separate rate sections. The review will proceed if the response provides sufficient indication that Kangtai is not subject to either de jure or de facto government control with respect to its export of chlorinated isocyanurates. On August 17, 2006, the Pension Protection Act of 2006, Public Law 109– 280, (‘‘H.R. 4’’), was signed into law. Section 1632 of H.R. 4 temporarily suspends the authority of the Department to instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect a bond or other security in lieu of a cash deposit in new shipper reviews during the period April 1, 2006, through June 30, 2009. Therefore, the posting of a bond or other security under section 751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the Act in lieu of a cash deposit is not available in this case. Importers of chlorinated isocyanurates exported and produced by Kangtai must continue to post a cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties on each entry of subject merchandise at the PRCwide rate of 285.63 percent. Interested parties requiring access to proprietary information in this new shipper review should submit applications for disclosure under administrative protective order in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305 and 351.306. This initiation and notice are in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214 and 351.221(c)(1)(i). Dated: January 21, 2009. Ronald K. Lorentzen, Acting Assistant Secretary for Import Administration. [FR Doc.

ACTION: Initiation of Review of Management Plan/Regulations; Intent To Prepare Environmental Impact Statement; Scoping Meetings. SUMMARY: Fagatele Bay National Marine Sanctuary (FBNMS or Sanctuary) was designated in April of 1986 in response to a proposal from the American Samoa Government to the (then) National Marine Sanctuary Program. FBNMS protects 163 acres (0.25 square miles) of vibrant tropical coral reef ecosystem off the southwest coast of Tutuila Island, American Samoa. The present management plan was written as part of the sanctuary designation process and published in the Final Environmental Impact Statement in 1984. In accordance with Section 304(e) of the VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:54 Jan 29, 2009 Jkt 217001 National Marine Sanctuaries Act, as amended, (NMSA) (16 U.S.C. 1431 et seq.), the Office of National Marine Sanctuaries (ONMS) of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is initiating a review of the FBNMS management plan, to evaluate substantive progress toward implementing the goals for the Sanctuary, to initiate discussions on possible site expansion, and to make revisions to the plan and regulations as necessary to fulfill the purposes and policies of the NMSA. NOAA will conduct public scoping meetings to gather information and other comments from individuals, organizations, and government agencies on the scope, types and significance of issues related to the Sanctuary’s management plan and regulations, and possible site expansion (including expansion to include the Rose Atoll Marine National Monument designated on January 6, 2009). The scoping meetings are scheduled as detailed below. DATES: Written comments should be received on or before March 26, 2009. Scoping meetings will be held on: (1) February 10th, 4–6:30 p.m., Convention Center, Utulei, Tutuila, American Samoa. (2) February 11th, 4–6:30 p.m., Fagaitua High School Gym, Fagaitua, Tutuila, American Samoa. (3) February 12th, 4–6:30 p.m., American Samoa Community College, Mapusaga, Tutuila, American Samoa. ADDRESSES: Written comments may be sent to the Fagatele Bay National Marine Sanctuary (Management Plan Review), P.O. Box 4318, Pago Pago, American Samoa 96799; or faxed to (808) 397– 2662. Electronic comments may be sent to fagatelebay@noaa.gov. Comments will be available for public review at the following street address: Fagatele Bay National Marine Sanctuary, 1 Convention Center Circle, Pago Pago, American Samoa 96799. All comments received are a part of the public record. All Personal Identifying Information (for example, name, address, etc.) voluntarily submitted by the commenter may be publicly accessible. Do not submit confidential business information or otherwise sensitive or protected information. NOAA will accept anonymous comments. Attachments to electronic comments will be accepted in Microsoft Word, Excel, or Adobe PDF file formats only. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kevin Grant, 808.397.2660 Ext. 238, fagatelebay@noaa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The proposed revised management plan will PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 5641 likely involve changes to existing policies of the Sanctuary in order to address contemporary issues and challenges, and to better protect and manage the Sanctuary’s resources and qualities. The review process is composed of four major stages: (1) Information collection and characterization; (2) preparation and release of a draft management plan/ environmental impact statement, and any proposed amendments to the regulations; (3) public review and comment; and (4) preparation and release of a final management plan/ environmental impact statement, and any final amendments to the regulations. In the event that the potential impacts of new actions described in the management plan do not warrant the need for an environmental impact statement, NOAA will publish the appropriate environmental analysis and notify the public. Depending upon the complexity and level of any site expansion, NOAA anticipates completion of the revised management plan and concomitant documents will require approximately thirty-six to forty-eight months. Preliminary Priority Topics NOAA, in consultation with the American Samoa Department of Commerce, has prepared a list of preliminary priority topics. This list represents our best professional judgment of the most important issues NOAA should consider in preparation of a new FBNMS management plan. We are interested in the public’s comments on these topics, as well as any other topics of interest to the public or other agencies. It is important to note that this list does not preclude or in any way limit the consideration of additional topics raised through public comment, government-to-government consultations, and discussions with partner agencies. Improved Partnerships—Recent initiatives regarding marine managed areas provide the Sanctuary with new opportunities to strengthen partnerships, particularly with Territorial and Federal agencies, the American Samoa Community College, and other entities. The Sanctuary will work in active partnership to provide a more transparent, cooperative, and coordinated management structure of marine resources within Territorial and federal jurisdictions. Characterization and Monitoring— There is a need to develop an understanding of baseline conditions of marine resources within the sanctuary, ecosystem functions, and status and trends of biological and socioeconomic E:\FR\FM\30JAN1.SGM 30JAN1
