This partial rescission is based on the withdrawal by Guizhou Tyre of its request for a review. DATES: Effective Date: November 30, 2010. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Emily Halle, AD/CVD Operations, Office 6, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–0176. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: jdjones on DSK8KYBLC1PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: Background The Department published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the countervailing duty order on OTR Tires from the PRC. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity To Request Administrative Review, 75 FR 53635 VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:13 Nov 29, 2010 Jkt 223001 74003 (September 1, 2010). Guizhou Tyre timely requested an administrative review of the countervailing duty order on OTR Tires from the PRC for the period January 1, 2009, through December 31, 2009. In addition, the Department received timely requests from eight other companies: Tianjin United Tire and Rubber International Co., Ltd.

These eight companies only requested reviews of themselves. In accordance with section 751(a)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act) and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), the Department published a notice initiating an administrative review of the countervailing duty order. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 75 FR 66349 (October 28, 2010). 351.212(c)(1)(i). The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of this notice. Rescission, in Part, of Countervailing Duty Administrative Review The Department’s regulations provide that the Department will rescind an administrative review if the party that requested the review withdraws its request for review within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation. See 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). Guizhou Tyre timely withdrew its request within the 90-day deadline. Therefore, as no other party requested a review of Guizhou Tyre, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department is rescinding this administrative review of the countervailing duty order with respect to Guizhou Tyre. The Department will choose mandatory respondents from the remaining eight companies for which a review was requested: TUTRIC; Shandong Huitong Tyre Co., Ltd.; Qingdao Hengda Tyres Co., Ltd.; Qingdao Sinorient International Ltd.; Qingdao Qizhou Rubber Co., Ltd.; Techking Tires Limited; Qingda Etyre International Trade Co., Ltd.; and Wengdeng Sanfeng Tyre Co., Ltd. Dated: November 23, 2010. Susan H. Kuhbach, Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations. Assessment The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess countervailing duties on all appropriate entries. For Guizhou Tyre, countervailing duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit or bonding rate of the estimated countervailing duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order This notice serves as a final 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), which continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding.

The applicant’s goal is to assess presence, abundance, and distribution of shortnose sturgeon within South Carolina rivers (Savannah, Edisto, Cooper, Santee Rivers, Santee-Cooper Lakes, and Winyah Bay system). During 2011–2016, up to 134 shortnose sturgeon in all South Carolina rivers would be captured using gill nets, trammel nets and trawls. Annually, shortnose sturgeon would be taken in good condition and measured, weighed, sampled for genetic tissue analysis, and PIT tagged. Additionally, selected adults and juveniles would be captured, anesthetized, and implanted with an internal sonic transmitter. In addition, shortnose sturgeon sex would be determined from a sample of fish annually by either laparoscopy or tubular biopsy. Blood from known sexes would be collected and processed determining the level of endrocrine disrupters in the environment. Manual tracking and passive detections of VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:13 Nov 29, 2010 Jkt 223001 telemetered fish at fixed receiver stations would be used to provide information about movements and habitat use.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: NMFS solicits nominations for the Advisory Panel (AP) for Atlantic Highly Migratory Species (HMS) Southeast Data, Assessment, and Review (SEDAR) Workshops (this AP is also called the ‘‘SEDAR Pool’’). The SEDAR Pool is comprised of a group of individuals whom may be selected to review data and advise NMFS regarding the scientific information, including but not limited to data and models, used in stock assessments for oceanic sharks in the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico, and Caribbean Sea. Nominations are being sought for a three-year appointment (2011–2014). Individuals with definable interests in the recreational and commercial fishing and related industries, environmental community, academia, and non-governmental organizations will be considered for membership on the SEDAR Pool. DATES: Nominations must be received on or before December 30, 2010. ADDRESSES: You may submit nominations and request the SEDAR Pool Statement of Organization, Practices, and Procedures by any of the following methods: • E-mail: SEDAR.pool@noaa.gov. • Mail: Karyl Brewster-Geisz, Highly Migratory Species Management Division, NMFS, 1315 East-West Highway, Silver Spring, MD 20910. Include on the envelope the following identifier: ‘‘SEDAR Pool Nomination.’’ • Fax: 301–713–1917. SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Additional information on SEDAR and the SEDAR guidelines can be found at http://www.sefsc.noaa.gov/sedar/. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Karyl Brewster-Geisz, (301) 713–2347 ext. 111. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Introduction Section 302(g)(2) of the MagnusonStevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act), 16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq., states that each Council shall establish such advisory panels as are necessary or appropriate to assist it in carrying out its functions under the Act. For the purposes of this section, NMFS considers the Council provision to be applicable to the HMS Management Division as well. As such, NMFS has established the SEDAR Pool under this section. The SEDAR Pool currently consists of 28 individuals who can be selected to review data and advise NMFS regarding the scientific information, including but not limited to data and models, used in stock assessments for oceanic sharks in the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico, and Caribbean Sea. While the SEDAR Pool was created specifically for Atlantic oceanic sharks, it may be expanded to include other HMS, as needed. The primary purpose of the individuals in the SEDAR Pool is to review, at SEDAR workshops, the scientific information, including but not limited to data and models, used in stock assessments that are used to advise NMFS, as a delegate to the Secretary of Commerce (Secretary), about the conservation and management of the Atlantic HMS, specifically but not limited to, Atlantic sharks. Individuals in the SEDAR Pool, if selected, may participate in the various data, assessment, and review workshops during the SEDAR process of any HMS stock assessment. In order to ensure that the peer review is unbiased, individuals who participated in a data and/or assessment workshop for a particular stock assessment will not be allowed to serve as reviewers for the same stock assessment. However, these individuals may be asked to attend the review workshop to answer specific questions from the reviewers concerning the data and/or assessment workshops. Members of the SEDAR Pool may serve as members of other APs concurrent with, or following, their service on the SEDAR Pool. E:\FR\FM\30NON1.SGM 30NON1
