Commerce Spectrum Management Advisory Committee Meeting, 61113-61114 [E9-28072]

Download as PDF jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 224 / Monday, November 23, 2009 / Notices Protection Act of 1972, as amended (16 U.S.C. 1361 et seq.), the regulations governing the taking and importing of marine mammals (50 CFR part 216), the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended (ESA; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.), and the regulations governing the taking, importing, and exporting of endangered and threatened species (50 CFR 222–226). Permit No. 1058–1733 authorizes the permit holder to examine baleen whale foraging and diving behaviors in the Southern Ocean as well as to determine the overlap of diving behaviors with the vertical structure of fixed fishing gear in the North Atlantic Ocean. In the Southern Ocean, researchers may closely approach humpback (Megaptera novaeangliae), blue (Balaenoptera musculus), fin (B. physalus), sei (B. borealis), and Antarctic minke (B. bonaerensis) whales during vessel surveys for photo-identification, behavioral observation, suction-cup tagging, tracking, and incidental harassment. In the North Atlantic, researchers may closely approach up to 324 of each species of humpback, fin, and sei whales annually during vessel surveys for photo-identification, behavioral observation, tracking, and incidental harassment. Of these animals, up to 108 of each species may be suction-cup tagged annually during surveys. This amendment: (1) expands the study area to include waters of the North Pacific and Arctic Oceans and the North Atlantic Ocean to the U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone; (2) authorizes five additional large whale species or populations: North Atlantic right (Eubalaena glacialis), North Pacific right (E. japonica), Northern blue (B. musculus musculus), Eastern gray (Eschrichtius robustus), and bowhead whales (Balaena mysticetus) to be harassed during vessel surveys for the above authorized activities; and (3) authorizes the tagging of humpback, fin and sei whales in the North Atlantic and species listed in (2) with archival tags using sub-dermal attachments. This research will provide a better understanding of large whale distribution and foraging ecology by gathering data on predator-prey relationships, diving behavior, day vs. night behavior, and acoustic behavior. The amendment is valid until the permit expires on May 31, 2012. In compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), an environmental assessment was prepared analyzing the effects of the permitted activities. After a Finding of No Significant Impact, the determination was made that it was not VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:37 Nov 20, 2009 Jkt 220001 necessary to prepare an environmental impact statement. Issuance of this amended permit, as required by the ESA, was based on a finding that such permit: (1) was applied for in good faith; (2) will not operate to the disadvantage of such endangered species; and (3) is consistent with the purposes and policies set forth in section 2 of the ESA.

EFFECTIVE DATE: November 23, 2009.

Background On June 1, 2009, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published in the Federal Register a notice of ‘‘Opportunity to Request an Administrative Review’’ of the antidumping order on chlorinated isocyanurates from Spain for the period June 1, 2008 through May 31, 2009. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 74 FR 26202 (June 1, 2009). On June 23, 2009, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b), the Department received a timely request from Aragonesas Industrias y Energia (Aragonesas) to conduct an administrative review of Aragonesas. On June 30, 2009, Clearon Corporation and Occidental Chemical Corporation, (collectively, petitioners), submitted a timely request to conduct an administrative review of Aragonesas. On July 29, 2009, the Department published a notice of initiation of an antidumping duty administrative review of Aragonesas’ exports of chlorinated isocyanurates from Spain. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Deferral of Administrative Review, 74 FR 37690 (July 29, 2009). On October 19, 2009 Aragonesas timely withdrew its request for review. Petitioners timely withdrew their request on October 27, 2009. Rescission of Administrative Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if the parties that requested a review withdraw the request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. On October 19, 2009 Aragonesas withdrew its request for review, and petitioners withdrew their request on October 27, 2009. All parties withdrew their requests before the 90-day deadline. Therefore, in response to the parties’ timely withdrawals of their requests for review, and pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department is rescinding the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on chlorinated isocyanurates from Spain for the period June 1, 2008 through May 31, 2009. PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Assessment The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. Since Aragonesas’ review is being rescinded, antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CPB 15 days after publication of this rescission notice in the Federal Register. Notification to Importers This notice serves as a reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order This notice serves as a final reminder to parties subject to administrative protective orders (APO) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written notification of the return/ destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation. This notice is issued and published in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4). Dated: November 17, 2009. John M. Andersen, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations. [FR Doc.
