Download as PDF 48802 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 153 / Tuesday, August 9, 2011 / Notices DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request The Department of Commerce will submit to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for clearance the following proposal for collection of information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). Agency: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Title: Billfish Certificate of Eligibility. OMB Control Number: 0648–0216. Form Number(s): NA. Type of Request: Regular submission (extension of a current information collection). Number of Respondents: 200. Average Hours per Response: Initial dealer information, 20 minutes; subsequent dealers’ information, 2 minutes. Burden Hours: 43. Needs and Uses: Under the provisions of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (16 U.S.C. 1801 et. seq.), NOAA is responsible for management of the Nation’s marine fisheries. In addition, NOAA must comply with the United States’ (U.S.) obligations under the Atlantic Tunas Convention Act of 1975 (16 U.S.C. 971 et. seq.). A Certificate of Eligibility (COE) for Billfishes is required under 50 CFR part 635 to accompany all billfish, except for a billfish landed in a Pacific state and remaining in the state of landing. This documentation certifies that the accompanying billfish was not harvested from the applicable Atlantic Ocean management unit (described on the NOAA sample certificate at https:// www.nmfs.noaa.gov/sfa/hms/GPEA/ 0216%20Billfish%20COEform.pdf), and identifies the vessel landing the billfish, the vessel’s homeport, the port of offloading, and the date of offloading. The certificate must accompany the billfish to any dealer or processor who subsequently receives or possesses the billfish. The certificate is required for all first receivers of billfish, and dealers or processors who subsequently receive or possess billfish must also retain a copy of the certificate while processing or handling the billfish. A standard certificate format is not currently required to document the necessary information, provided it contains all of the information required. The continuation of this collection is necessary to implement the Consolidated Highly Migratory Species Fishery Management Plan, which contains an objective to reserve Atlantic billfish for the recreational fishery. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit organizations. Frequency: On occasion. Respondent’s Obligation: Mandatory. OMB Desk Officer: OIRA_Submission@omb.eop.gov. Copies of the above information collection proposal can be obtained by calling or writing Diana Hynek, Departmental Paperwork Clearance Officer, (202) 482–0266, Department of Commerce, Room 6616, 14th and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230 (or via the Internet at dHynek@doc.gov). Written comments and recommendations for the proposed information collection should be sent within 30 days of publication of this notice to OIRA_Submission@omb.eop.gov. Dated: August 3, 2011.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Amended Final Results On November 7, 2008, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published the final results of its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain steel concrete reinforcing bars (rebar) from Turkey. See Certain Steel Concrete Reinforcing Bars From Turkey; Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Determination To Revoke in Part, 73 FR 66218 (Nov. 7, 2008). The period of review (POR) is April 1, 2006, through March 31, 2007. As part of this decision, the Department, following the methodology used in the 2005–2006 administrative review, depreciated an ‘‘asset’’ recorded in respondent Ekinciler Demir ve Celik Sanayi A.S.’s/Ekinciler Dis Ticaret A.S.’s (Ekinciler’s) financial statements which was later determined to be capitalized expenses from a proprietary event in an earlier period. Following the publication of the final results, Ekinciler filed a lawsuit with the United States Court of International Trade (CIT) challenging the Department’s final results of administrative review. See Ekinciler Demir ve Celik Sanayi A.S. & Ekinciler Dis Ticaret A.S. v. United States, Court No. 08–00415. Further, in litigation related to the 2005–2006 administrative review, the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit determined that the Department did not have the authority to depreciate the asset in question. See Nucor Corporation v. United States, Ekinciler, et al., Court No. 2009–1476 (April 12, 2010). The United States and Ekinciler have now entered into an agreement to settle this dispute. Pursuant to the terms of the agreement between the United States and Ekinciler, we calculated the following amended final margin for Ekinciler for the POR and are amending the final results of the antidumping duty administrative review of rebar from Turkey as follows: sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Manufacturer/Producer/Exporter Margin Percentage Ekinciler Demir ve Celik Sanayi A.S./Ekinciler Dis Ticaret A.S. ...............................................................................

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Amended Final Results

    On November 7, 2008, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published the final results of its administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on certain steel concrete reinforcing bars 
(rebar) from Turkey. See Certain Steel Concrete Reinforcing Bars From 
Turkey; Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and 
Determination To Revoke in Part, 73 FR 66218 (Nov. 7, 2008). The period 
of review (POR) is April 1, 2006, through March 31, 2007.
    As part of this decision, the Department, following the methodology 
used in the 2005-2006 administrative review, depreciated an ``asset'' 
recorded in respondent Ekinciler Demir ve Celik Sanayi A.S.'s/Ekinciler 
Dis Ticaret A.S.'s (Ekinciler's) financial statements which was later 
determined to be capitalized expenses from a proprietary event in an 
earlier period.
    Following the publication of the final results, Ekinciler filed a 
lawsuit with the United States Court of International Trade (CIT) 
challenging the Department's final results of administrative review. 
See Ekinciler Demir ve Celik Sanayi A.S. & Ekinciler Dis Ticaret A.S. 
v. United States, Court No. 08-00415. Further, in litigation related to 
the 2005-2006 administrative review, the Court of Appeals for the 
Federal Circuit determined that the Department did not have the 
authority to depreciate the asset in question. See Nucor Corporation v. 
United States, Ekinciler, et al., Court No. 2009-1476 (April 12, 2010).
    The United States and Ekinciler have now entered into an agreement 
to settle this dispute. Pursuant to the terms of the agreement between 
the United States and Ekinciler, we calculated the following amended 
final margin for Ekinciler for the POR and are amending the final 
results of the antidumping duty administrative review of rebar from 
Turkey as follows:

Assessment

    The Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), for all sales made by 
Ekinciler, because we have the reported entered value of the U.S. 
sales, we have calculated importer-specific

[[Page 48803]]

assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of antidumping 
duties calculated for the examined sales to the total entered value of 
those sales.
    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we will instruct CBP to liquidate 
without regard to antidumping duties any entries for which the 
assessment rate is de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent).
    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003. See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). This 
clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the

destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP 
to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate if there is no
