Endangered and Threatened Species; Initiation of a 5-year Review of the Baiji/Chinese River Dolphin/Yangtze River Dolphin, 42684-42685 [2010-17832]

Download as PDF 42684 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 140 / Thursday, July 22, 2010 / Notices For purposes of the order, the narrative description is dispositive, not the tariff heading, American Chemical Society, CAS registry number or CAS name, or the specific percentage chemical composition identified above. Amendment to the Final Determination In the Final Determination we determined that several companies qualified for a separate rate. See Final Determination, 75 FR at 30378. In the preliminary determination, we stated that the antidumping duty margin for companies receiving a separate rate would be based on an average of the rates submitted in the Petition. See Certain Potassium Phosphate Salts From the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value 75 FR 12508 (March 16, 2010) (Preliminary Determination). For the Preliminary Determination, the Department calculated the average margin for the separate rate companies based on the margins in the petition for TKPP, DKP and anhydrous monopotassium phosphate (‘‘MKP’’). However, as explained below, because the ITC made a negative determination of material injury with respect to MKP, the Department is basing its calculation of the separate rate margin on the petition margins for TKPP and DKP only. Therefore, the separate rate margin has been amended to 62.23 percent. The PRC-wide rate of 95.4 percent was based on the highest margin alleged in the petition. Because the highest petition margin of 95.4 percent was for DKP, the DKP and TKPP PRC-wide rate has not changed. The revised dumping margins are listed in the chart below. Antidumping Duty Order Antidumping Duty Order On July 15, 2010, in accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, the ITC notified the Department of its final determination in this investigation. In its determination, the ITC found three domestic like products (DKP, TKPP, and MKP), covering the scope of subject merchandise subject to the investigation. The ITC made affirmative determinations with respect to DKP and TKPP, and a negative determination with respect to MKP. Since the ITC made different affirmative injury determinations for domestic like products, the Department must instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to assess antidumping duties on entries of DKP and TKPP separately from MKP. MKP Because the ITC made a negative determination of material injury with respect to MKP, the Department will direct CBP to terminate the suspension of liquidation for entries of MKP from the PRC entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, and to release any bond or other security, and refund any cash deposit, posted to secure the payment of estimated antidumping duties with respect to these entries. Because the ITC determined that imports of DKP and TKPP from the PRC are materially injuring a U.S. industry, all unliquidated entries of such potassium phosphate salts from the PRC, entered or withdrawn from warehouse, are subject to the assessment of antidumping duties. Therefore, in accordance with section 736(a)(1) of the Act, the Department will direct CBP to assess, upon further instruction by the Department, antidumping duties equal to the amount by which the normal value of the merchandise exceeds the export price (or constructed export price) of the merchandise for all relevant entries of certain potassium phosphate salts from the PRC. These antidumping duties will be assessed on unliquidated entries of DKP and TKPP from the PRC entered, or withdrawn from the warehouse, for consumption on or after March 16, 2010, the date on which the Department published its Preliminary Determination. Effective on the date of publication of the ITC’s final affirmative injury determination, CBP will require, at the same time as importers would normally deposit estimated duties on this merchandise, a cash deposit equal to the estimated weighted-average antidumping duty margins as listed below. See section 736(a)(3) of the Act. The ‘‘PRC-wide’’ rate applies to all exporters of subject merchandise not specifically listed. The weightedaverage dumping margins are as follows: Weightedaverage margin Supplier Snow-Apple Group Limited ...........................................................

The list is published at 50 CFR 17.11 (for animals) and 17.12 (for plants). Section 4(c)(2)(A) of the ESA requires that we conduct a review of listed species at least once every 5 years. On the basis of such reviews under section 4(c)(2)(B), we determine whether or not any species should be removed from the list (delisted), or reclassified from endangered to threatened or from threatened to endangered. Delisting a species must be supported by the best scientific and commercial data available and only considered if such data substantiates that the species is neither endangered nor threatened for one or more of the following reasons: (1) the species is considered extinct; (2) the species is considered to be recovered; and/or (3) the original data available when the species was listed, or the interpretation of such data, were in error. Any change in federal classification would require a separate rulemaking process. The regulations (50 CFR 424.21) require that we publish a notice in the Federal Register announcing those species currently under active review.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    Under the ESA, a list of endangered and threatened wildlife and 
plant species (list) must be maintained. The list is published at 50 
CFR 17.11 (for animals) and 17.12 (for plants). Section 4(c)(2)(A) of 
the ESA requires that we conduct a review of listed species at least 
once every 5 years. On the basis of such reviews under section 
4(c)(2)(B), we determine whether or not any species should be removed 
from the list (delisted), or reclassified from endangered to threatened 
or from threatened to endangered. Delisting a species must be supported 
by the best scientific and commercial data available and only 
considered if such data substantiates that the species is neither 
endangered nor threatened for one or more of the following reasons: (1) 
the species is considered extinct; (2) the species is considered to be 
recovered; and/or (3) the original data available when the species was 
listed, or the interpretation of such data, were in error. Any change 
in federal classification would require a separate rulemaking process. 
The regulations (50 CFR 424.21) require that we publish a notice in the 
Federal Register announcing those species currently under active 
review. This notice announces our active review of the Baiji/Chinese 
River Dolphin/Yangtze River Dolphin (Lipotes vexillifer) currently 
listed as endangered.

Public Solicitation of New Information

    To ensure that the 5-year review is complete and based on the best 
available scientific and commercial information, we are soliciting new 
information from the public, concerned governmental agencies, tribes, 
the scientific community, industry, environmental entities, and any 
other interested parties concerning the status of the Baiji/Chinese 
River Dolphin/Yangtze River Dolphin (Lipotes vexillifer).
    Five-year reviews consider the best scientific and commercial data 
and all new information that has become available since the listing 
determination or most recent status review. Categories of requested 
information include the following: (A) species biology, including, but 
not limited to, population trends, distribution, abundance, 
demographics, and genetics; (B) habitat conditions, including, but not 
limited to, amount, distribution, and suitability; (C) conservation 
measures that have been implemented that benefit the species; (D) 
status and trends of threats; and (E) other new information, data, or 
corrections, including, but not limited to, taxonomic or nomenclatural 
changes, identification of erroneous information contained in the list, 
and improved analytical methods.
    If you wish to provide information for this 5-year review, you may 
submit your information and materials to Angela Somma (see ADDRESSES).
