Since its establishment, the Advisory Council has played a vital role in decisions affecting the Sanctuary along the central California coast. The Advisory Council’s twenty voting members represent a variety of local user groups, as well as the general public, plus seven local, state and federal governmental jurisdictions. In addition, the respective managers or superintendents for the four California National Marine Sanctuaries (Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary, Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuary, Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary and the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary) and the Elkhorn Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve sit as non-voting members. Four working groups support the Advisory Council: The Research Activity Panel (‘‘RAP’’) chaired by the Research Representative, the Sanctuary Education Panel (‘‘SEP’’) chaired by the Education Representative, the Conservation Working Group (‘‘CWG’’) chaired by the Conservation Representative, and the Business and Tourism Activity Panel (‘‘BTAP’’) chaired by the Business/Industry Representative, each dealing with matters concerning research, education, conservation and human use. The working groups are composed of experts from the appropriate fields of interest and meet monthly, or bi-monthly, serving as invaluable advisors to the Advisory Council and the Sanctuary Superintendent. The Advisory Council represents the coordination link between the Sanctuary and the state and federal management agencies, user groups, researchers, educators, policy makers, and other various groups that help to focus efforts and attention on the central California coastal and marine ecosystems. The Advisory Council functions in an advisory capacity to the Sanctuary Superintendent and is instrumental in helping develop policies, program goals, and identify education, outreach, research, long-term monitoring, resource protection, and revenue enhancement priorities. The Advisory Council works in concert with the Sanctuary Superintendent by keeping him or her informed about issues of concern throughout the Sanctuary, offering recommendations on specific issues, and aiding the Superintendent in achieving the goals of the Sanctuary SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 program within the context of California’s marine programs and policies.

The proposed project to display endangered cultured shortnose sturgeon responds directly to a recommendation from the NMFS recovery plan outline for this species. The permit would not authorize any takes from the wild, nor would it authorize any release of captive sturgeon into the wild. The permit is requested for a duration of 5 years.

EFFECTIVE DATE: October 5, 2010. SUMMARY: In response to a request from Jingzhou Meihou Flexible Magnet AGENCY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:36 Oct 04, 2010 Jkt 223001 Company, Ltd. (‘‘Jingzhou Meihou’’) the Department of Commerce (the ‘‘Department’’) published on April 30, 2010, a Federal Register notice announcing the initiation of a new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on raw flexible magnets from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) covering the period of September 1, 2009, through February 28, 2010. On August 27, 2010, Jingzhou Meihou withdrew its request for a new shipper review. Therefore, we are rescinding this new shipper review. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Maisha Cryor, AD/CVD Operations, Office 4, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–5831. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On March 29, 2010, we received a timely request for a new shipper review from Jingzhou Meihou in accordance with 19 CFR 351.214(c) and 351.214(d)(2). On April 30, 2010, the Department found that the request for review with respect to Jingzhou Meihou met all of the regulatory requirements set forth in 19 CFR 351.214(b) and initiated an antidumping duty new shipper review. See Raw Flexible Magnets From the People’s Republic of China: Initiation of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review, 75 FR 22740 (April 30, 2010). On August 27, 2010, Jingzhou Meihou withdrew its request for a new shipper review. On September 2, 2010, we placed on the record and served to parties a memorandum stating that the Department intended to rescind the above–referenced new shipper review, allowing parties to comment on the intended rescission by no later than September 9, 2010. See Memorandum to the File from Maisha Cryor, Case Analyst, through Robert Bolling, Program Manager, regarding: Withdrawal of Request for NSR from Jingzhou Meihou, dated September 2, 2010. The Department did not receive comments from any party. See Memorandum to the File from Maisha Cryor, Case Analyst, through Robert Bolling, Program Manager, regarding: Comments on Jingzhou Meihou’s Withdrawal of Request for NSR, dated September 15, 2010. Rescission of New Shipper Review 19 CFR 351.214(f)(1) provides that the Department may rescind a new shipper review if the party that requested the PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 61425 review withdraws its request for review within 60 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. Although Jingzhou Meihou withdrew its request after the 60-day deadline, we find it reasonable to extend the deadline. See 19 CFR 351.302(b). In this instance, no other company would be affected by a rescission, and we have received no objections from any party to Jingzhou Meihou’s withdrawal of its request for this new shipper review. Based upon the above, we are rescinding the new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on raw flexible magnets from the PRC with respect to Jingzhou Meihou. See Certain Steel Nails From the People’s Republic of China: Rescission of New Shipper Review, 75 FR 38080 (July 1, 2010) (rescinding the new shipper review after the 60-day deadline). As the Department is rescinding this new shipper review, we are not making a determination as to whether Jingzhou Meihou qualifies for a separate rate. Therefore, Jingzhou Meihou will remain part of the PRC entity. Notifications We intend to instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection, 15 days from the date of publication of this notice, to liquidate any entries by Jingzhou Meihou during the period of review at the cash deposit rate in effect at the time of entry. This notice serves as a final 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. This notice also serves as the only reminder to parties subject to administrative protective orders (‘‘APO’’) of their responsibility concerning the return or destructions of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a). 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 violation which is subject to sanction. We are issuing and publishing this determination and notice in accordance with section 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(f)(3). E:\FR\FM\05OCN1.SGM 05OCN1
