On March 29, 2010, pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.214(c), the Department received a timely request for a new shipper review from Jingzhou Meihou. On April 22, 2010, the Department found that the request for review with respect to Jinzhou Meihou met all of the regulatory requirements set forth in 19 CFR 351.214(b) and initiated a CVD new shipper review. See Raw Flexible Magnets from the People’s Republic of China: Initiation of Countervailing Duty New Shipper Review, 75 FR 22741 (April 30, 2010).1 On May 5, 2010, we issued a CVD questionnaire to Jingzhou Meihou and received the company’s response on June 21, 2010.2 On June 28, 2010, Magnum Magnetics Corporation, the petitioner, submitted to the Department comments on Jinzhou Meihou’s questionnaire response.3 In its submission, petitioner argued that Jingzhou Meihou is not eligible for a new shipper review on the basis that there is a familial affiliation between it and Dongguan Maghard Flexible Magnet Co., Ltd. (Dongguan Maghard), a company that exported subject merchandise to the United States during the CVD POI, which was January 1, 2006, through December 31, 2006. On July 30, 2010, we issued a memorandum detailing our analysis of the affiliation issue. See Memorandum to Edward C. Yang, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary, for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, from Melissa G. Skinner, Director, Operations, Office 3, regarding ‘‘Jingzhou Meihou’s Eligibility for a New Shipper,’’ (July 30, 2010) (Affiliation Memorandum). We found that Jinzhou Meihou and Dongguan Maghard are affiliated companies on the basis of a familial connection. We also found that Dongguan Maghard was an exporter of subject merchandise to the United States during the CVD POI. We, therefore, determined that Jingzhou Meihou is not eligible for a CVD new shipper review. We provided interested parties the opportunity to submit comments on the Affiliation Memorandum. On August 6, 2010, Jingzhou Meihou submitted a letter to the Department expressing disagreement with the Department’s decision regarding affiliation.4 Jinzhou Meihou, however, stated that it would respect the Department’s decision that the CVD new shipper review be rescinded.5 Petitioner did not submit any comments on the Affiliation Memorandum to the Department. As such, we are rescinding the CVD new shipper review with respect to Jinzhou Meihou and are not calculating a company–specific rate for the company. Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order This notice also serves as the only reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (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 or 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 violation which is subject to sanction. This notice is published in accordance with section 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(f)(3).

This affirmative finding will allow yellowfin tuna harvested in the eastern tropical Pacific Ocean (ETP) in compliance with the International Dolphin Conservation Program (IDCP) by Spanish flag purse seine vessels or purse seine vessels operating under Spanish jurisdiction to be imported into the United States. The affirmative finding was based on review of documentary evidence submitted by the Government of Spain and obtained from the Inter-American Tropical Tuna Commission (IATTC) and the U.S. Department of State.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The MMPA, 16 U.S.C. 1361 et seq., allows the entry into the United States of yellowfin tuna harvested by purse seine vessels in the ETP under certain conditions. If requested by the harvesting nation, the Assistant Administrator will determine whether to make an affirmative finding based upon documentary evidence provided by the government of the harvesting nation, the IATTC, or the Department of State. The affirmative finding process requires that the harvesting nation is meeting its obligations under the IDCP and obligations of membership in the IATTC. Every 5 years, the government of the harvesting nation must request an affirmative finding and submit the required documentary evidence directly to the Assistant Administrator. On an annual basis, NMFS will review the affirmative finding and determine whether the harvesting nation continues to meet the requirements. A nation may provide information related to compliance with IDCP and IATTC measures directly to NMFS on an annual basis or may authorize the IATTC to release the information to NMFS to annually renew an affirmative finding determination without an application from the harvesting nation. An affirmative finding will be terminated, in consultation with the Secretary of State, if the Assistant Administrator determines that the requirements of 50 CFR 216.24(f) are no longer being met or that a nation is E:\FR\FM\27AUN1.SGM 27AUN1 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 166 / Friday, August 27, 2010 / Notices consistently failing to take enforcement actions on violations, thereby diminishing the effectiveness of the IDCP.

Taking and Importing of Marine Mammals

AGENCY: National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), National Oceanic and 
Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Commerce.

ACTION: Notice; affirmative finding.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Assistant Administrator for Fisheries, NMFS, (Assistant 
Administrator) has granted a request for an affirmative finding to the 
Government of Spain under the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA). This 
affirmative finding will allow yellowfin tuna harvested in the eastern 
tropical Pacific Ocean (ETP) in compliance with the International 
Dolphin Conservation Program (IDCP) by Spanish flag purse seine vessels 
or purse seine vessels operating under Spanish jurisdiction to be 
imported into the United States. The affirmative finding was based on 
review of documentary evidence submitted by the Government of Spain and 
obtained from the Inter-American Tropical Tuna Commission (IATTC) and 
the U.S. Department of State.

DATES: The affirmative finding is effective from April 1, 2010, through 
March 31, 2015, subject to annual review by NMFS.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Regional Administrator, Southwest 
Region, NMFS, 501 West Ocean Boulevard, Suite 4200, Long Beach, CA 
90802-4213; 562-980-4000; (fax) 562-980-4018.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The MMPA, 16 U.S.C. 1361 et seq., allows the 
entry into the United States of yellowfin tuna harvested by purse seine 
vessels in the ETP under certain conditions. If requested by the 
harvesting nation, the Assistant Administrator will determine whether 
to make an affirmative finding based upon documentary evidence provided 
by the government of the harvesting nation, the IATTC, or the 
Department of State.
    The affirmative finding process requires that the harvesting nation 
is meeting its obligations under the IDCP and obligations of membership 
in the IATTC. Every 5 years, the government of the harvesting nation 
must request an affirmative finding and submit the required documentary 
evidence directly to the Assistant Administrator. On an annual basis, 
NMFS will review the affirmative finding and determine whether the 
harvesting nation continues to meet the requirements. A nation may 
provide information related to compliance with IDCP and IATTC measures 
directly to NMFS on an annual basis or may authorize the IATTC to 
release the information to NMFS to annually renew an affirmative 
finding determination without an application from the harvesting 
nation.
    An affirmative finding will be terminated, in consultation with the 
Secretary of State, if the Assistant Administrator determines that the 
requirements of 50 CFR 216.24(f) are no longer being met or that a 
nation is

[[Page 52723]]

consistently failing to take enforcement actions on violations, thereby 
diminishing the effectiveness of the IDCP.
    As a part of the affirmative finding process set forth in 50 CFR 
216.24(f), the Assistant Administrator considered documentary evidence 
submitted by the Government of Spain and obtained from the IATTC and 
the Department of State and has determined that Spain has met the 
MMPA's requirements to receive an affirmative finding.
    After consultation with the Department of State, the Assistant 
Administrator issued an affirmative finding to Spain, allowing the 
continued importation into the United States of yellowfin tuna and 
products derived from yellowfin tuna harvested in the ETP by Spanish-
flag purse seine vessels or purse seine vessels operating under Spanish 
jurisdiction. Spain's affirmative finding will remain valid through 
March 31, 2015, subject to subsequent annual reviews by NMFS.
