FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Requests for additional information or copies of the information collection instrument and instructions should be directed to Mark Plummer, (206) 860– 3492 or Mark.Plummer@noaa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract This request is for a new collection of information. The Puget Sound estuary provides one of the most valuable shellfish habitats in the Pacific Northwest. Shellfish are important economically, ecologically, and socially to the Puget Sound basin. While shellfish bed closures have decreased area-wide, persistent closures continue in certain locations, affecting local growers and restricting commercial and recreational harvest opportunities. The Puget Sound Partnership (Partnership), a Washington State agency established to facilitate the conservation and restoration of Puget Sound, has set a priority to reduce the risks of shellfish growing area closures and adverse effects on human health. The Partnership’s Action Agenda, the blueprint for action to restore and protect Puget Sound, has set a goal for a net increase of 10,800 harvestable shellfish acres by 2020. In support of the Partnership’s pursuit of this goal, the Northwest Fisheries Science Center is undertaking an economics research project to assess the PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 behavior of individual shellfish harvesters in response to the opening and closing of individual shellfish beaches for human health reasons, and how these actions affect the value of shellfish harvesting. The Puget Sound Recreational Shellfish Harvesting Project (PSRSHP) will provide critical economic data related to recreational shellfish harvesting. More specifically, the PSRSHP will collect data needed to assess (1) The socioeconomic characteristics of recreational shellfish harvesting participants; (2) The economic value of access to Puget Sound beaches for recreational shellfish harvesting through statistical estimation of models; and (3) the potential changes in these values stemming from possible changes in management policies related to human health that affect the status of particular shellfish harvesting areas. II. Method of Collection A sample of shellfish and fishing license holders will be screened with a brief telephone survey, followed by a mail survey where appropriate. Respondents to the telephone survey will submit data by telephone, and respondents to the mail survey will submit data on paper. III. Data OMB Control Number: None. Form Number: None. Type of Review: Regular submission (new information collection). Affected Public: Individuals or households. Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,463. Estimated Time per Response: 30 minutes for mail respondents who harvested shellfish in Puget Sound; 10 minutes for all other mail respondents; 3 minutes telephone screener. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 214. E:\FR\FM\18JNN1.SGM 18JNN1

SUMMARY: On June 8, 2012, the U.S. Trade Representative (``USTR'') 
instructed the Department of Commerce (``Department'') to implement its 
determinations under section 129 of the Uruguay Round Agreements Act 
(``URAA'') regarding the recalculation of cash deposit rates for 
estimated antidumping duties currently in effect for certain companies, 
in a manner which renders them not inconsistent with the World Trade 
Organization (``WTO'') dispute settlement findings in US-Zeroing 
(EC),\1\ US-Continued Zeroing (EC),\2\ and US-Zeroing (Japan).\3\ The 
Department issued its determinations in the Final Results of its 
section 129 proceedings\4\ on June 6, 2012. The Department is now 
implementing these Final Results.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On February 13, 2012, the USTR requested, pursuant to section 129 
of the URAA, that the Department render the cash deposit rates 
currently in effect for certain companies not inconsistent with the WTO 
Dispute Settlement Body's (``DSB'') recommendations and rulings in US-
Zeroing (EC), US-Continued Zeroing (EC), and US-Zeroing (Japan). 
Subsequently, on February 21, 2012, the Department initiated section 
129 proceedings for the completed administrative reviews corresponding 
to the request from the USTR. In each section 129 proceeding, the 
Department recalculated the cash deposit rates for certain companies, 
as specified by the USTR, applying the calculation methodology 
described in Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the

[[Page 36258]]

Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain 
Antidumping Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 
14, 2012) (``Final Modification for Reviews''). The Department has 
recalculated the current cash deposit rates for these specified 
companies, listed in the table below, in a manner paralleling the WTO-
consistent methodology that the Department applies in antidumping 
investigations.

Stainless Belgium N.V. Stainless Steel Plate in Coils from Belgium:

Review, 77 FR 66,271 (April 12, 2012). Therefore, although the 
request from the USTR identified ArcelorMittal Stainless Belgium

recalculated cash deposit rate will be applied to Aperam Stainless 
Belgium N.V. (``ASB'').

    On March 23, 2012, the Department issued its Preliminary Results 
for these section 129 proceedings.\17\ On April 9 and 10, 2012, the 
Department received case briefs from interested parties, and on April 
16, 2012, the Department received rebuttal briefs. The Department 
issued its Final Results on June 6, 2012, in which it addressed all 
comments from interested parties.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \17\ Memorandum from Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary 
for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, to Paul Piquado, 
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, Preliminary Results 
for the Section 129 Proceedings: Stainless Steel Plate in Coils from 
Belgium, Steel Concrete Reinforcing Bars from Latvia, Purified 
Carboxymethylcellulose from Finland, Certain Pasta from Italy, 
Purified Carboxymethylcellulose from the Netherlands, Stainless 
Steel Wire Rod from Spain, Granular Polytetrafluoroethylene Resin 
from Italy, Stainless Steel Sheet and Strip in Coils from Japan 
(``Preliminary Results'').
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On June 7-8, 2012, consistent with section 129(b)(3) of the URAA, 
the USTR held consultations with the Department and the appropriate 
congressional committees with respect to these Final Results. On June 
8, 2012, in accordance with sections 129(b)(4) and 129(c)(1)(B) of the 
URAA, the USTR directed the Department to implement these Final 
Results.

Nature of the Proceedings

    Section 129 of the URAA governs the nature and effect of 
determinations issued by the Department to implement findings by WTO 
dispute settlement panels and the Appellate Body. Specifically, section 
129(b)(2) provides that ``notwithstanding any provision of the Tariff 
Act of 1930,'' within 180 days of a written request from the USTR, the 
Department shall issue a determination that would render its actions 
not inconsistent with an adverse finding of a WTO panel or the 
Appellate Body.\18\ The Statement of Administrative Action, U.R.A.A., 
H. Doc. 316, Vol. 1, 103d Cong. (1994) (``SAA''), variously refers to 
such a determination by the Department as a ``new,'' ``second,'' and 
``different'' determination.\19\ After consulting with the Department 
and the appropriate congressional committees, the USTR may direct the 
Department to implement, in whole or in part, the new determination 
made under section 129.\20\ Pursuant to section 129(c), the new 
determination shall apply with respect to unliquidated entries of the 
subject merchandise that are entered or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption, on or after the date on which the USTR directs the 
Department to implement the new determination.\21\ The new 
determination is subject to judicial review, separate and apart from 
judicial review of the Department's original determination.\22\
