FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Background srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES On June 1, 2010, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review on the antidumping order on non-frozen apple juice concentrate from the PRC 1 for the POR June 1, 2009, through May 31, 2010. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity To Request Administrative Review, 75 FR 30383, 30384 (June 1, 2010). Based upon requests for review from various parties, on July 28, 2010, the Department initiated an antidumping duty administrative review on nonfrozen apple juice concentrate from the PRC, covering two companies. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocations in Part, 75 FR 44224, 44226 (July 28, 2010). Due to the probable revocation of the Order, SLFI and Qin’an withdrew their requests for review on November 8 and November 9, 2010, respectively.2 The Order was revoked on November 15, 2010. See Non-Frozen Apple Juice Concentrate From the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of Sunset Review and Revocation of Order, 75 FR 69628 (November 15, 2010). Due to timely withdrawals of all requests for review, we are rescinding this administrative review with respect to all companies. 1 See Notice of Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Non-Frozen Apple Juice Concentrate From the People’s Republic of China, 65 FR 35606 (June 5, 2000) (‘‘Order’’). 2 See Certain Non-Frozen Apple Juice Concentrate from the PRC—Withdrawal of SLFI Antidumping Duty Administrative Review Request, dated November 8, 2010; see also Qin’an Great Wall Fruit Juice & Beverage Co., Ltd. Withdrawal of Administrative Review Request: 2009–2010 Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Non-Frozen Apple Juice Concentrate from the People’s Republic of China, dated November 9, 2010. VerDate Mar<15>2010 02:10 Dec 29, 2010 Jkt 223001 Rescission of Review The applicable regulation, 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), states that if a party that requested an administrative review withdraws the request within 90 days of the publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review, the Secretary will rescind the review. The regulation further states that the Secretary may extend the deadline if it is reasonable to do so. On October 21, 2010, the Department extended the deadline for withdrawal of administrative review requests by 20 days for both respondents due to the pending revocation of the Order. 3 The two respondents in the administrative review, SLFI and Qin’an, withdrew their requests for a review before the deadline. Therefore, the Department is rescinding this review of the Order on non-frozen apple juice concentrate from the PRC covering the period June 1, 2009, through May 31, 2010. Assessment The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) 15 days after publication of this rescission notice. The Department will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i).

On April 27, 2010 notice (80 FR 22119) was published that NMML requests a 5-year permit to conduct research on marine mammals in the Pacific, Atlantic, Arctic, and Southern Oceans to monitor cetaceans for scientific and management purposes. NMFS is in the midst of processing this request. Due to recent changes in narwhal distribution NMML now requests as part of this application to take narwhals during aerial and vessel surveys to document sightings in North Pacific and Arctic waters and monitor their status and trends. Up to 1,000 animals would be taken annually by each survey platform for observation, monitoring, counts, photo-identification and photogrammetry. During vessel surveys researchers would opportunistically collect sloughed skin, fecal samples, and carcass remains. An environmental assessment is being prepared in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.) to examine whether significant environmental impacts could result from issuance of the proposed scientific research permit. Concurrent with the publication of this notice in the Federal Register, NMFS is forwarding copies of the application to the Marine Mammal Commission and its Committee of Scientific Advisors.
