With respect to the value of the merchandise produced in the PRC, the petitioner relied on the information and arguments in the ‘‘minor or insignificant process’’ portion of its anti– circumvention request to indicate that the value of the PRC jumbo rolls and sheets of tissue paper is significant relative to the total value of finished merchandise exported to the United States. We find that this information adequately meets the requirements of this factor, as discussed above. Finally, the petitioner argued that the Department should also consider the pattern of trade, affiliation, and subsequent import volume as factors in determining whether to initiate the anti–circumvention inquiry. The import information submitted by the petitioner indicates that Vietnamese imports of tissue paper from the PRC and U.S. imports of tissue paper from Vietnam rose significantly after the initiation of the investigation and the establishment of Max Fortune Vietnam. In addition, the petitioner provides information suggesting that Max Fortune Vietnam’s affiliation with a known producer of the subject merchandise in the PRC, the timing of Max Fortune Vietnam’s establishment, and the nature of Max Fortune Vietnam’s operations reflect an intention to shift completion of merchandise subject to the PRC tissue paper order from the PRC to Vietnam. Accordingly, we are initiating a formal anti–circumvention inquiry concerning the antidumping duty order on certain tissue paper products from the PRC, pursuant to section 781(b) of the Act. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.225(l)(2), if the Department issues a preliminary affirmative determination, we will then instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to suspend liquidation and require a cash deposit of estimated duties, at the applicable rate, VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:35 Apr 02, 2010 Jkt 220001 for each unliquidated entry of the merchandise at issue, entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after the date of initiation of the inquiry. The Department is focusing its analysis of the significance of the production process in Vietnam on the single company identified by the petitioner, namely Max Fortune Vietnam, in its February 18, 2010, anti– circumvention inquiry request and about which sufficient information to initiate an anti–circumvention inquiry has been provided. If the Department receives a formal request from an interested party regarding potential circumvention by other Vietnamese companies involved in processing PRC jumbo rolls and/or sheets for export to the United States within sufficient time, we will consider conducting the inquiries concurrently. The Department will, following consultation with interested parties, establish a schedule for questionnaires and comments on the issues. The Department intends to issue its final determination within 300 days of the date of publication of this initiation consistent with the language of section 781(f) of the Act. This notice is published in accordance with 19 CFR 351.225(f). Dated: March 29, 2010. Ronald K. Lorentzen, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.

ACTION: Notice of guideline harvest level. SUMMARY: NMFS provides notice of the 2010 Pacific halibut guideline harvest levels (GHLs) for the charter vessel fishery in International Pacific Halibut Commission (IPHC) regulatory areas (Area) 2C and 3A. This notice is necessary to meet the regulatory requirement to publish notice PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 17131 announcing the GHLs and to inform the public about the 2010 GHLs for the charter vessel fishery for halibut. The GHLs are benchmark harvest levels for participants in the charter vessel fishery. The 2010 GHLs remain the same as the 2009 GHLs; the Area 2C GHL is 788,000 lb (357.4 mt), and the Area 3A GHL is 3,650,000 lb (1,655.6 mt). DATES: The GHLs are effective beginning February 1, 2010, through December 31, 2010. This period is specified by IPHC as the sport fishing season in all waters in and off Alaska. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Peggy Murphy, (907) 586–7228. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background In 2003, NMFS implemented a final rule (68 FR 47256, August 8, 2003) to establish GHLs for Pacific halibut (Hippoglossus stenolepis) harvested by the charter vessel fishery in IPHC regulatory area (Area) 2C and Area 3A. Regulations implementing the GHLs have been amended twice. In 2008, the GHL table was corrected at 50 CFR 300.65(c)(1) (73 FR 30504, May 28, 2008). In 2009, regulatory provisions were amended for NMFS’ annual publication of the GHL notice and to clarify NMFS’ authority to take action at any time to limit the charter vessel angler catch to the GHL (74 FR 21194, May 6, 2009). This notice is consistent with § 300.65(c) and announces the 2010 GHLs for the charter vessel fishery for halibut in IPHC Areas 2C and 3A. Regulations at § 300.65(c)(1) specify the GHLs based on the total constant exploitation yield (CEY) that is established annually by the IPHC. The total CEY for 2010 is 5,020,000 lb (2,277 mt) in Area 2C, and 26,192,000 lb (11,880 mt) in Area 3A. The corresponding GHLs are 788,000 lb (357.4 mt) in Area 2C, and 3,650,000 lb (1,655.6 mt) in Area 3A. The GHLs in Areas 2C and 3A did not change from the 2009 level. NMFS may take action at any time to limit the charter halibut harvest to as close to the GHL as practicable (50 CFR 300.65 (c)(3)). NMFS is in the process of implementing a new limited entry system for charter vessels in the guided sport fishery for halibut in Areas 2C and 3A. Beginning in 2011, the limited access system limits the number of charter vessels that may participate in the fishery to qualified business owners (75 FR 554, January 5, 2010).

    In 2003, NMFS implemented a final rule (68 FR 47256, August 8, 
2003) to establish GHLs for Pacific halibut (Hippoglossus stenolepis) 
harvested by the charter vessel fishery in IPHC regulatory area (Area) 
2C and Area 3A. Regulations implementing the GHLs have been amended 
twice. In 2008, the GHL table was corrected at 50 CFR 300.65(c)(1) (73 
FR 30504, May 28, 2008). In 2009, regulatory provisions were amended 
for NMFS' annual publication of the GHL notice and to clarify NMFS' 
authority to take action at any time to limit the charter vessel angler 
catch to the GHL (74 FR 21194, May 6, 2009).
    This notice is consistent with Sec.  300.65(c) and announces the 
2010 GHLs for the charter vessel fishery for halibut in IPHC Areas 2C 
and 3A. Regulations at Sec.  300.65(c)(1) specify the GHLs based on the

and 26,192,000 lb (11,880 mt) in Area 3A. The corresponding GHLs are 
788,000 lb (357.4 mt) in Area 2C, and 3,650,000 lb (1,655.6 mt) in Area 
3A. The GHLs in Areas 2C and 3A did not change from the 2009 level. 
NMFS may take action at any time to limit the charter halibut harvest
