Filing Information As a courtesy, we are making information related to Sunset proceedings, including copies of the pertinent statute and Department’s regulations, the Department schedule for Sunset Reviews, a listing of past revocations and continuations, and current service lists, available to the public on the Department’s sunset Internet Web site at the following address: ‘‘https://ia.ita.doc.gov/sunset/.’’ All submissions in these Sunset Reviews must be filed in accordance with the Department’s regulations regarding format, translation, service, and certification of documents. These rules can be found at 19 CFR 351.303. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.103 (d), the Department will maintain and make available a service list for these proceedings. To facilitate the timely preparation of the service list(s), it is requested that those seeking recognition as interested parties to a proceeding contact the Department in writing within 10 days of the publication of the Notice of Initiation. Because deadlines in Sunset Reviews can be very short, we urge interested parties to apply for access to proprietary information under administrative protective order (‘‘APO’’) immediately following publication in the Federal Register of this notice of initiation by filing a notice of intent to participate. The Department’s regulations on submission of proprietary information and eligibility to receive access to business proprietary information under APO can be found at 19 CFR 351.304– 306. Information Required from Interested Parties Domestic interested parties defined in section 771(9)(C), (D), (E), (F), and (G) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.102(b)) wishing to participate in a Sunset Review must respond not later than 15 days after the VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:22 Jun 30, 2009 Jkt 217001 Barium Chloride (3rd Review) Chloropicrin (3rd Review) Floor–Standing, Metal Top Ironing Tables And Parts Thereof Polyethylene Retail Carrier Bags Polyethylene Retail Carrier Bags Polyethylene Retail Carrier Bags Sorbitol (3rd Review) Stainless Steel Wire Rod (2nd Review) Stainless Steel Wire Rod (2nd Review) Stainless Steel Wire Rod (2nd Review) Stainless Steel Wire Rod (2nd Review) Stainless Steel Wire Rod (2nd Review) Stainless Steel Wire Rod (2nd Review) Tetrahydrofurfuryl Alcohol date of publication in the Federal Register of this notice of initiation by filing a notice of intent to participate.

See 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(iii). If we receive an order–specific notice of intent to participate from a domestic interested party, the Department’s regulations provide that all parties wishing to participate in the Sunset Review must file complete substantive responses not later than 30 days after the date of publication in the Federal Register of this notice of initiation. The required contents of a substantive response, on an order–specific basis, are set forth at 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3). Note that certain information requirements differ for respondent and domestic parties.

Please consult the Department’s regulations at 19 CFR Part 351 for definitions of terms and for other general information concerning antidumping and countervailing duty proceedings at the Department. This notice of initiation is being published in accordance with section 1 In comments made on the interim final sunset regulations, a number of parties stated that the proposed five-day period for rebuttals to substantive responses to a notice of initiation was insufficient. This requirement was retained in the final sunset regulations at 19 CFR 351.218(d)(4). As provided in 19 CFR 351.302(b), however, the Department will consider individual requests to extend that five-day deadline based upon a showing of good cause.

Permit No. 774–1847–03, issued on August 14, 2008 (73 FR 49648) authorizes the applicant to take up to 710 Antarctic fur seals (Arctophalus gazella), 20 leopard seals (Hydrurga leptonyx), and 180 southern elephant seals (Mirounga leonina) annually in Antarctica.. The animals are captured, measured, weighed, tagged, blood sampled, vibrissae collected, and have time-depth recorders, VHF transmitters, and platform terminal transmitters attached. A subset of seals are given an enema, have a tooth extracted, milk sampled, blubber/muscle sampled, tissue sampled, and are part of a doublylabeled water study on energetics. The Permit Holder requests authorization to begin a Weddell seal (Leptonychotes weddellii) study to understand movements, site fidelity, and demographics of this species in Antarctica. Up to 60 Weddell seals would be taken annually. Seals would be instrumented and sampled (blood, vibrissae, muscle/blubber, milk, and tissue). The applicant is requesting up to 4 research-related mortalities of Weddell seals (2 adults and 2 juveniles) VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:22 Jun 30, 2009 Jkt 217001 annually.

ACTION: Notice of Approval and Availability for the revised Guana Tolomato Matanzas, Florida National Estuarine Research Reserve Management Plan. SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given that the Estuarine Reserves Division, Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management, National Ocean Service, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), U.S. Department of Commerce has approved the revised Guana Tolomato Matanzas, Florida National Estuarine Research Reserve Management Plan. The Guana Tolomato Matanzas National Estuarine Research Reserve is located in St. Johns and Flagler counties and is geographically separated into a PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 northern and southern component separated by the City of St. Augustine. The Reserve was designated in 1999. Pursuant to 15 CFR 921.33(c), a state must revise their management plan every five years. The submission of this plan brings the Reserve into compliance and sets a course for successful implementation of the goals and objectives of the Reserve. The revised management plan outlines the administrative structure; the education, stewardship, and research goals of the reserve; and the plans for future land acquisition and facility development to support reserve operations. The Reserve management goals and objectives can be categorized within the following five management challenges: Public use, habitat and species management, watershed land use, cultural preservation and interpretation, and global processes. These issues can be directly or indirectly linked to anthropogenic land use of increasing population densities accompanied by increasing development, recreation and economic pressures. The Guana Tolomato Matanzas Environmental Education Center is a notable addition since the last management plan and serves as the administrative, education, research, and stewardship facility for the northern component of the Reserve. The facility will provide an opportunity for further outreach to the community and serve as a center of excellence for regional science, education and stewardship forums. The boundary of the Reserve is being expanded to include 8,865 acres of publicly owned land in the southern component of the reserve. Approximately 4,166 acres of the FaverDykes State Park is being added to the 1,333 acres of the Faver-Dykes State Park incorporated at designation. The additional park lands will provide new resources and allow for an extension of the existing partnership. Additionally, 4,699 acres of the Matanzas State Forest is being added to the Reserve boundary to protect the last remaining undisturbed salt marsh within the Reserve and is part of a 16,000 acre continuous conservation corridor. These additions will bring the total Reserve acreage to 73,352 acres protected for long-term research, education and stewardship. Pursuant to 15 CFR 921.33, NOAA published a notice in the Federal Register providing an opportunity for public comment on July 7, 2008. No comments were received.
