Authority Scientific research permits are issued in accordance with section 10(a)(1)(A) of the ESA (16 U.S.C. 1531 et. seq) and regulations governing listed fish and wildlife permits (50 CFR parts 222–226). NMFS issues permits based on findings that such permits: (1) are applied for in goodfaith; (2) if granted and exercised, would not operate to the disadvantage of the listed species that are the subject of the permit; and (3) are consistent with the purposes and policy of section 2 of the ESA. The authority to take listed species is subject to conditions set forth in the permits. Anyone requesting a hearing on an application listed in this notice should set out the specific reasons why a hearing on that application would be appropriate (see ADDRESSES). Such hearings are held at the discretion of the Assistant Administrator for Fisheries, NMFS. Applications Received mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES Permit 1523–2R The National Council of Air and Stream Improvements (NCASI) is seeking to renew its permit to annually take listed salmon while conducting research in the McKenzie and Willametterivers in Oregon. The NCASI is requesting another 5-year permit to take juvenile UWR Chinook salmon while studying water quality and biological conditions in rivers receiving paper- and pulpmill discharges. The research will provide information on existing conditions in the watersheds and on changes in those conditions over time, and ultimately on the aquatic communities’responses to environmental stressors. The information will be used in a larger effort to monitor watershed health, water quality, and salmon recovery in the Upper Willamette watershed. The NCASI proposes to capture (using boat electrofishers), handle, and release VerDate Nov<24>2008 18:40 Sep 18, 2009 Jkt 217001 listed salmon. The NCASI does not intend to capture adult fish but some may be in the areas being fished and will be avoided as much as possible. While most of the fish would not be harmed, some juveniles may unintentionally be killed during the course of the research. Permit 1525–3R The Northwest Fisheries Science Center (NWFSC) is seeking to renew its permit to annually take listed salmonids in the Lower Willamette River, Oregon, and in the Columbia River from its mouth up to Bonneville Dam. The NWFSC is requesting another 5-year permit to take juvenile SR spring/ summer Chinook salmon, SR fall Chinook salmon, SR steelhead, UCR Chinook salmon, UCR steelhead, MCR steelhead, LCR Chinook salmon, LCR steelhead, UWRChinook salmon, UWR steelhead, and CR chum salmon. The purposes of the study are to (1) determine contaminant concentrations in fish, (2) understand contaminant bioaccumulation injuvenile salmon and determine site-specific factors leading to any contamination, (3) analyze the fish for the presence of physiological biomarkers, and (4) determine if the fish exhibit any indicators of exposure to environmental estrogens. The NWFSC would collect samples with seines or high-speed rope trawls and is asking for authorization to handle juvenile fish and tointentionally kill some of them for pathogen assays, biochemical composition, histopathological attributes, and stomach content analyses. Permit 1318–7M Permit 1318 currently authorizes the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) to take juvenile UCR Chinook salmon, UCR steelhead, SR steelhead, SR fall-run Chinook salmon,SR spring/ summer-run Chinook salmon, SR sockeye salmon, MCR steelhead, UWR Chinook salmon, UWR steelhead, LCR Chinook salmon, LCR coho salmon, LCR steelhead, CR chum salmon, and OC coho salmon in streams in the Willamette and Columbia basins, and on the Oregon coast. The ODFW is seeking to modify the permit by adding an eighth project. The application contains the following projects: (1) warm water fish management surveys; (2)investigations of natural production of spring Chinook salmon in the Mohawk basin; (3) genetic characterization of rainbow trout in the upper Willamette subbasin; (4) fish abundance,population status, genetics and disease surveys in the upper Willamette subbasin; (5) native trout PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 48059 surveys for abundance, size composition, and migration patterns in the mainstem McKenzieRiver; (6) resident redband population estimates in the Deschutes River; (7) resident redband population estimates in the Crooked River; and (8) fish population sampling in the NorthWillamette Watershed District. The research would benefit the fish by providing information on population structure, abundance, genetics, disease occurrence, and species interactions. Thatinformation would be used to direct management actions to benefit listed species. Juvenile salmonids would be collected (using boat electrofishing). Some fish would be anesthetized,sampled for length and weight, allowed to recover from the anesthesia, and released. Most salmonids would only be shocked and allowed to swim away, or be netted and releasedimmediately. The ODFW does not intend to kill any of the fish being captured, but a small number may die as an unintended result of the activities. This notice is provided pursuant to section 10(c) of the ESA. NMFS will evaluate the applications, associated documents, and comments submitted to determine whether the applications meet the requirements of section 10(a) of the ESA and Federal regulations. The final permit decisions will not be made until after the end of the 30-day comment period. NMFS will publish notice of its final action in the FEDERAL REGISTER. Dated: September 15, 2009.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background This investigation covers 15 programs and a single producer/exporter, Incheon Metal Co., Ltd. (Incheon Metal). The petitioner in this investigation is Korff Holdings LLC dba Quaker City Castings (Petitioner). Period of Investigation The period of investigation (the POI) for which we are measuring subsidies is January 1, 2008, through December 31, 2008, which corresponds to the most recently completed fiscal year for Incheon Metal and the government of Korea (GOK). See 19 CFR 351.204(b) (2). Case History On July 6, 2009, the Department published in the Federal Register the preliminary determination in the countervailing duty investigation of Ni– resist piston inserts from Korea. See Ni– Resist Piston Inserts from the Republic of Korea: Preliminary Negative Countervailing Duty Determination, 74 FR 31919 (July 6, 2009) (Preliminary Determination). In accordance with section 782(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), from July 30 through August 4, 2009, we conducted verification of the questionnaire responses submitted by the GOK and Incheon Metal (collectively, respondents). We issued the verification reports on August 14, 2009, and August 21, 2009, respectively.1 On August 27, 2009, we received a case brief from Petitioner. On August 31, 2009, we received a case brief from the GOK. On September 3, 2009 and September 8, 2009, we received rebuttal briefs from Incheon Metal and the GOK. No hearing was requested. Scope of the Investigation The scope of this investigation includes all Ni–resist piston inserts regardless of size, thickness, weight, or outside diameter. Ni–resist piston inserts may also be called other names including, but not limited to, ‘‘Ring Carriers,’’ or ‘‘Alfin Inserts.’’ Ni–resist piston inserts are alloyed cast iron rings, with or without a sheet metal cooling channel pressed and welded into the interior of the insert. Ni–resist piston inserts are composed of the material known as Ni–resist, of the chemical composition: 13.5% - 17.5% Ni (nickel), 5.5% - 8.0% Cu (copper), 0.8% - 2.5% Cr (chromium), 0.5% - 1.5% Mn (manganese), 1.0% - 3.0% Si (silicon), 2.4% - 3.0% C (carbon). The cast iron composition is produced primarily to the material specifications of the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), ASTM A–436 grade 1. The scope of this investigation does not include piston rings nor did any other product manufacture using the Ni–resist material. The subject imports are properly classified under subheading 8409.99.91.90 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), but have been imported under HTSUS 7326.90. The HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes. The written description is dispositive of the scope of this investigation. Injury Test Because Korea is a ‘‘Subsidies Agreement Country’’ within the meaning of section 701(b) of the Act, the International Trade Commission (the ITC) is required to determine whether imports of the subject merchandise from Korea materially injure, or threaten material injury, to a U.S. industry. On March 25, 2009, the ITC published its preliminary determination finding that there is a reasonable indication that an industry in the United States is materially injured by reason of imports from Korea of the subject merchandise. See Ni–Resist Piston Inserts from Argentina and Korea, Investigation Nos. 701–TA–460–461 (Preliminary), 74 FR 12898 (March 25, 2009). Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties to this investigation are addressed in the Decision Memorandum. Attached to this notice as an Appendix is a list of the issues that parties raised and to which we have responded in the Decision Memorandum.

In addition, a complete version of the Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly on the Internet at http:// ia.ita.doc.gov/frn/. The paper copy and electronic version of the Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Suspension of Liquidation In accordance with section 705(c) (1) (B) (i) (I) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (as amended) (the Act), we have calculated an individual rate for the company under investigation, Incheon Metal which is the producer/exporter of the subject merchandise under investigation. We determine the total estimated net countervailable subsidy rates are as follows: Net Subsidy Rate Incheon Metal Co., Ltd .............................................................................................................................................. All Others ................................................................................................................................................................... mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES Producer/Exporter de minimis percent ad valorem de minimis percent ad valorem In the Preliminary Determination, the total net countervailable subsidy rate was de minimis and, therefore, we did not suspend liquidation. Because the rate for Incheon Metal remains de minimis, we are not directing U.S. Customs and Border Patrol to suspend liquidation of entries of Ni–resist pistons from Korea.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    This investigation covers 15 programs and a single producer/
exporter, Incheon Metal Co., Ltd. (Incheon Metal). The petitioner in 
this investigation is Korff Holdings LLC dba Quaker City Castings 
(Petitioner).

Period of Investigation

    The period of investigation (the POI) for which we are measuring 
subsidies is January 1, 2008, through December 31, 2008, which 
corresponds to the most recently completed fiscal year for Incheon 
Metal and the government of Korea (GOK). See 19 CFR 351.204(b) (2).

Case History

    On July 6, 2009, the Department published in the Federal Register 
the preliminary determination in the countervailing duty investigation 
of Ni-resist piston inserts from Korea. See Ni-Resist Piston Inserts 
from the Republic of Korea: Preliminary Negative Countervailing Duty 
Determination, 74 FR 31919 (July 6, 2009) (Preliminary Determination).
    In accordance with section 782(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the Act), from July 30 through August 4, 2009, we conducted 
verification of the questionnaire responses submitted by the GOK and 
Incheon Metal (collectively, respondents). We issued the verification 
reports on August 14, 2009, and August 21, 2009, respectively.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The public version of the verification report and all public 
reports are on file in the Central Records Unit, Room 1117 in the 
main building of the Department.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On August 27, 2009, we received a case brief from Petitioner. On 
August 31, 2009, we received a case brief from the GOK. On September 3, 
2009 and September 8, 2009, we received rebuttal briefs from Incheon 
Metal and the GOK. No hearing was requested.

Scope of the Investigation

    The scope of this investigation includes all Ni-resist piston 
inserts regardless of size, thickness, weight, or outside diameter. Ni-
resist piston inserts may also be called other names including, but not 
limited to, ``Ring Carriers,'' or ``Alfin Inserts.'' Ni-resist piston 
inserts are alloyed cast iron rings, with or without a sheet metal 
cooling channel pressed and welded into the interior of the insert. Ni-
resist piston inserts are composed of the material known as Ni-resist, 
of the chemical composition: 13.5% - 17.5% Ni (nickel), 5.5% - 8.0% Cu 
(copper), 0.8% - 2.5% Cr (chromium), 0.5% - 1.5% Mn (manganese), 1.0% - 
3.0% Si (silicon), 2.4% - 3.0% C (carbon). The cast iron composition is 
produced primarily to the material specifications of the American 
Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), ASTM A-436 grade 1.
    The scope of this investigation does not include piston rings nor 
did any other product manufacture using the Ni-resist material. The 
subject imports are properly classified under subheading 8409.99.91.90 
of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), but 
have been imported under HTSUS 7326.90. The HTSUS subheadings are 
provided for convenience and customs purposes. The written description 
is dispositive of the scope of this investigation.

Injury Test

    Because Korea is a ``Subsidies Agreement Country'' within the 
meaning of section 701(b) of the Act, the International Trade 
Commission (the ITC) is required to determine whether imports of the 
subject merchandise from Korea materially injure, or threaten material 
injury, to a U.S. industry. On March 25, 2009, the ITC published its 
preliminary determination finding that there is a reasonable indication 
that an industry in the United States is materially injured by reason 
of imports from Korea of the subject merchandise. See Ni-Resist Piston 
Inserts from Argentina and Korea, Investigation Nos. 701-TA-460-461 
(Preliminary), 74 FR 12898 (March 25, 2009).

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties to 
this investigation are addressed in the Decision Memorandum. Attached 
to this notice as an Appendix is a list of the issues that parties 
raised and to which we have responded in the Decision Memorandum. 
Parties can find a complete discussion of all issues raised in this 
investigation and the corresponding recommendations in this public 
memorandum, which is on file in the Department's Central Records Unit. 
In addition, a complete version of the Decision Memorandum can be 
accessed directly on the Internet at http://ia.ita.doc.gov/frn/. The 
paper copy and electronic version of the Decision Memorandum are 
identical in content.

Suspension of Liquidation

    In accordance with section 705(c) (1) (B) (i) (I) of the Tariff Act 
of 1930 (as amended) (the Act), we have calculated an individual rate 
for the company under investigation, Incheon Metal which is the 
producer/exporter of the subject merchandise under investigation. We 
determine the total estimated net countervailable subsidy rates are as 
follows:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
             Producer/Exporter                    Net Subsidy Rate
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Incheon Metal Co., Ltd....................         de minimis percent ad
                                                                 valorem
All Others................................         de minimis percent ad
                                                                 valorem
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In the Preliminary Determination, the total net countervailable 
subsidy rate was de minimis and, therefore, we did not suspend 
liquidation. Because the rate for Incheon Metal remains de minimis, we 
are not directing U.S. Customs and Border Patrol to suspend liquidation 
of entries of Ni-resist pistons from Korea.

ITC Notification

    In accordance with section 705(d) of the Act, we will notify the 
ITC of our determination.

Return or Destruction of Proprietary Information

    This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
Administrative Protective Order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Failure to 
comply is a violation of the APO.
    This determination is issued and published pursuant to sections 
705(d) and 777(i) of the Act.
