The Councils are considering adding an RSA provision to the FMP. PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 39063 (2) Commercial Quota Allocation Alternatives: Currently, the commercial quota for spiny dogfish is allocated seasonally into two periods in the fishing year. Period 1 (May 1–Oct 31) is allocated 57.9 percent of the quota and Period 2 (Nov 1–Apr 30) is allocated 42.1 percent of the quota. The Councils are considering alternative allocation (i.e., geographic) schemes for the Federal quota. (3) Specifying the spiny dogfish quota and/or trip limits by sex: The Councils are considering modifications to the FMP that would allow for sex-specific annual specification of spiny dogfish commercial quota and/or trip limits. (4) Limited Access Spiny Dogfish Permit: Federal spiny dogfish permits are currently available to all vessels. The Councils are considering modifying the Federal permit to make it a limited access permit. It is possible that an incidental catch permit would also be established that would be open access. (5) Recreational Spiny Dogfish Fishery: To the extent that recreationally caught spiny dogfish are retained, that component of the overall fishery is not acknowledged in the FMP. The Councils are considering adding management measures for the recreational fishery to the FMP. Following the scoping process, the Councils may develop additional approaches and alternatives (including No Action) to address these issues, consistent with the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act. The above issues under consideration are described in greater detail in the scoping document itself; copies may be obtained from the Council (see ADDRESSES) or via the Internet at http://www.mafmc.org /comments/comments.htm.

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by this order are certain welded carbon steel 
pipe and tube with an outside diameter of 0.375 inch or more, but not 
over 16 inches, of any wall thickness (pipe and tube) from Turkey. 
These products are currently provided for under the Harmonized Tariff

7306.30.50, and 7306.90.10. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided 
for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the 
merchandise is dispositive.

Intent to Rescind the 2008 Administrative Review, in Part

    Yucel submitted a letter to the Department on June 15, 2009, 
certifying that it had no sales, shipments, or entries, directly or 
indirectly, of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. 
The petitioner did not comment on Yucel's claim of no sales, shipments, 
or entries.
    On June 16, 2009, we conducted an internal customs data query. We 
also issued a ``no shipments inquiry'' message to U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection (CBP), which posted the message on June 19, 2009.\3\ 
The customs data query indicated that Yucel had no sales, shipments, or 
entries of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. We 
did not receive any information from CBP contrary to Yucel's claim of 
no sales, shipments, or entries of subject merchandise to the United 
States during the POR. See Memorandum to the File through Melissa 
Skinner, Director, AD/CVD Operations, Office 3, titled ``Customs Data 
Query,'' (July 7, 2009).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3 \ See Message number 9170203, available at http://addcvd.cbp.gov.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Based on our analysis of the shipment data, we preliminarily 
determine that Yucel did not ship subject merchandise to the United 
States during the POR. Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.213(d)(3), and consistent with our practice,\4\ we preliminarily 
determine to rescind the review for Yucel. We will continue this 
administrative review with respect to the Borusan Group, Borusan 
Mannesmann Boru Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S., Borusan Istikbal Ticaret 
T.A.S., Tosyali dis Ticaret A.S., and Toscelik Profil ve Sac Endustrisi
