AGENCY: srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Background On May 2, 2011, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published a notice announcing the opportunity to request an administrative review of the countervailing duty order on citric acid and certain citrate salts (‘‘citric acid’’) from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’). See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity To Request Administrative Review, 76 FR 24460 (May 2, 2011). On May 31, 2011, Huangshi Xinghua Biochemical Co., Ltd. (‘‘Xinghua’’), a producer and exporter of citric acid, timely requested that the Department conduct an administrative review of the countervailing duty order on citric acid, covering merchandise exported by Xinghua during the period of January 1, 2010, through December 31, 2010. In accordance with 19 CFR VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:59 Aug 10, 2011 Jkt 223001 49735 351.221(c)(1)(i), the Department published a notice initiating this administrative review with regard to Xinghua. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 76 FR 37781 (June 28, 2011). Dated: August 4, 2011. Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations. Rescission of Review DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(l), the Secretary will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party that requested a review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. On July 27, 2011, Xinghua withdrew its request for review of itself within the 90-day period. Therefore, in response to Xinghua’s timely withdrawal request, and as no other party requested a review of Xinghua, the Department is rescinding this administrative review with respect to Xinghua. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Assessment The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to assess countervailing duties on all appropriate entries. For Xinghua, the countervailing duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated countervailing duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of this notice of rescission of administrative review with respect to Xinghua. 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). 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 sanctionable violation.

On June 8, 2011, NMFS received a final revised TRMP from the CTUIR, addressing management of CTUIR fisheries in the Grande Ronde and Imnaha Rivers. On June 14, 2011, NMFS received two final revised FMEPs from the ODFW, one describing statemanaged recreational fisheries in the Grande Ronde River and one describing state-managed fisheries in the Imnaha River. The FMEPs and TRMPs include adaptive management measures to limit ESA impacts and propose conservative harvest regimes on the affected listed species. The FMEPs and TRMPs describe monitoring programs that would be in place to ensure that the implementation of the fisheries is as intended, and that assumptions regarding the effects of the fisheries, particularly in application of the proposed ESA take limits, continue to remain valid. The FMEPs and TRMPs propose to manage all spring/summer Chinook salmon fisheries to achieve escapement objectives. The FMEPs and TRMPs utilize a harvest rate with five tiers based on predicted adult abundance to each of the affected populations. The majority of the harvest is anticipated to come from hatchery-origin stocks. The FMEPs and TRMPs also describe a process to guide coordination of fishery design and implementation between the agencies implementing fisheries in the action area. As required by the ESA 4(d) Rule for Tribal Plans (65 FR 42481, July 10, 2000 [50 CFR 223.209]), the Secretary must VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:59 Aug 10, 2011 Jkt 223001 determine pursuant to 50 CFR 223.209 and pursuant to the government-togovernment processes therein whether the TRMPs for fisheries in Northeast Oregon would appreciably reduce the likelihood of survival and recovery of Snake River spring/summer and Snake River Basin steelhead. The Secretary must take comments on his pending determination as to whether the TRMPs address the criteria in the Tribal 4(d) Rule and in § 223.203(b)(4). As specified in § 223.203(b)(4) of the ESA 4(d) Rule, NMFS may approve an FMEP if it meets criteria set forth in § 223.203(b)(4)(i)(A) through (I). Prior to final approval of an FMEP, NMFS must publish notification announcing its availability for public review and comment. NEPA requires Federal agencies to conduct an environmental analysis of their proposed actions to determine if the actions may affect the human environment. NMFS expects to take action on two ESA section 4(d) TRMPs and two ESA section 4(d) FMEPs. Therefore, NMFS is seeking public input on the scope of the required NEPA analysis, including the range of reasonable alternatives and associated impacts of any alternatives. The final NEPA, TRMP, and FMEP determinations will not be completed until after the end of the 30-day comment period and will fully consider all public comments received during the comment period. NMFS will publish a record of its final action on the TRMPs in the Federal Register. Authority Under section 4 of the ESA, NMFS, by delegated authority from the Secretary of Commerce, is required to adopt such regulations as he deems necessary and advisable for the conservation of the species listed as threatened. The ESA salmon and steelhead 4(d) Rule (65 FR 42422, July 10, 2000) specifies categories of activities that contribute to the conservation of listed salmonids and sets out the criteria for such activities. Limit 4 of the updated 4(d) rule (50 CFR 223.203(b)(4)) further provides that the prohibitions of paragraph (a) of the updated 4(d) rule (50 CFR 223.203(a)) do not apply to activities associated with fishery harvest provided that an FMEP has been approved by NMFS to be in accordance with the salmon and steelhead 4(d) rule (65 FR 42422, July 10, 2000, as updated in 70 FR 37160, June 28, 2005).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Species Covered in This Notice

    Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha): Threatened, naturally 
produced and artificially propagated Snake River Spring/Summer-run.
    Steelhead (O. mykiss): Threatened, naturally produced and 
artificially propagated Snake River Basin.

Background

    On June 7, 2011, NMFS received a final revised TRMP from the SBT, 
addressing management of SBT fisheries in the Grande Ronde and Imnaha 
Rivers. On June 8, 2011, NMFS received a final revised TRMP from the 
CTUIR, addressing management of CTUIR fisheries in the Grande Ronde and 
Imnaha Rivers. On June 14, 2011, NMFS received two final revised FMEPs 
from the ODFW, one describing state-managed recreational fisheries in 
the Grande Ronde River and one describing state-managed fisheries in 
the Imnaha River. The FMEPs and TRMPs include adaptive management 
measures to limit ESA impacts and propose conservative harvest regimes 
on the affected listed species. The FMEPs and TRMPs describe monitoring 
programs that would be in place to ensure that the implementation of 
the fisheries is as intended, and that assumptions regarding the 
effects of the fisheries, particularly in application of the proposed 
ESA take limits, continue to remain valid.
    The FMEPs and TRMPs propose to manage all spring/summer Chinook 
salmon fisheries to achieve escapement objectives. The FMEPs and TRMPs 
utilize a harvest rate with five tiers based on predicted adult 
abundance to each of the affected populations. The majority of the 
harvest is anticipated to come from hatchery-origin stocks. The FMEPs 
and TRMPs also describe a process to guide coordination of fishery 
design and implementation between the agencies implementing fisheries 
in the action area.
    As required by the ESA 4(d) Rule for Tribal Plans (65 FR 42481, 
July 10, 2000 [50 CFR 223.209]), the Secretary must determine pursuant 
to 50 CFR 223.209 and pursuant to the government-to-government 
processes therein whether the TRMPs for fisheries in Northeast Oregon 
would appreciably reduce the likelihood of survival and recovery of 
Snake River spring/summer and Snake River Basin steelhead. The 
Secretary must take comments on his pending determination as to whether 
the TRMPs address the criteria in the Tribal 4(d) Rule and in Sec.  
223.203(b)(4).
    As specified in Sec.  223.203(b)(4) of the ESA 4(d) Rule, NMFS may 
approve an FMEP if it meets criteria set forth in Sec.  
223.203(b)(4)(i)(A) through (I). Prior to final approval of an FMEP, 
NMFS must publish notification announcing its availability for public 
review and comment.
    NEPA requires Federal agencies to conduct an environmental analysis 
of their proposed actions to determine if the actions may affect the 
human environment. NMFS expects to take action on two ESA section 4(d) 
TRMPs and two ESA section 4(d) FMEPs. Therefore, NMFS is seeking public 
input on the scope of the required NEPA analysis, including the range 
of reasonable alternatives and associated impacts of any alternatives.
    The final NEPA, TRMP, and FMEP determinations will not be completed 
until after the end of the 30-day comment period and will fully 
consider all public comments received during the comment period. NMFS 
will publish a record of its final action on the TRMPs in the Federal 
Register.

Authority

    Under section 4 of the ESA, NMFS, by delegated authority from the 
Secretary of Commerce, is required to adopt such regulations as he 
deems necessary and advisable for the conservation of the species 
listed as threatened. The ESA salmon and steelhead 4(d) Rule (65 FR 
42422, July 10, 2000) specifies categories of activities that 
contribute to the conservation of listed salmonids and sets out the 
criteria for such activities. Limit 4 of the updated 4(d) rule (50 CFR 
223.203(b)(4)) further provides that the prohibitions of paragraph (a) 
of the updated 4(d) rule (50 CFR 223.203(a)) do not apply to activities 
associated with fishery harvest provided that an FMEP has been approved 
by NMFS to be in accordance with the salmon and steelhead 4(d) rule (65 
FR 42422, July 10, 2000, as updated in 70 FR 37160, June 28, 2005). The 
ESA Tribal 4(d) Rule (65 FR 42481, July 10, 2000) states that the ESA 
section 9 take prohibitions will not apply to TRMPs that will not 
appreciably reduce the likelihood of survival and recovery for the 
listed species.
