SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On February 23, 2001, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published the antidumping duty orders on butt-weld pipe fittings from Italy, Malaysia, and the Philippines.1 On November 1, 2011, the Department published a notice of initiation of its second five-year (sunset) reviews of the antidumping duty orders on butt-weld pipe fittings from Italy, Malaysia, and the Philippines.2 As a result of these sunset reviews, the Department determined that revocation of the antidumping duty orders on butt-weld pipe fittings from Italy, Malaysia, and the Philippines would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping and, therefore, notified the U.S. International Trade Commission (Commission) of the magnitude of the margins likely to prevail should these orders be revoked.3 On July 5, 2012, the Commission published its determination in the Federal Register, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), that revocation of the antidumping duty orders on buttweld pipe fittings from Italy, Malaysia, and the Philippines would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time.4 mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Scope of the Orders For purposes of the orders, the product covered is certain stainless steel butt-weld pipe fittings (butt-weld fittings). Butt-weld pipe fittings are under 14 inches in outside diameter (based on nominal pipe size), whether finished or unfinished. The product encompasses all grades of stainless steel and ‘‘commodity’’ and ‘‘specialty’’ fittings. Specifically excluded from the definition are threaded, grooved, and 1 See Antidumping Duty Orders: Stainless Steel Butt-Weld Pipe Fittings From Italy, Malaysia, and the Philippines, 66 FR 11257 (February 23, 2001). 2 See Initiation of Five-Year (‘‘Sunset’’) Review, 76 FR 67412 (November 1, 2011) (Initiation Notice). 3 See Stainless Steel Butt-Weld Pipe Fittings From Italy, Malaysia, and the Philippines: Final Results of the Expedited Second Five-Year (‘‘Sunset’’) Reviews of Antidumping Duty Orders, 77 FR 14002 (March 8, 2012) and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum. 4 See Stainless Steel Butt-Weld Pipe Fittings From Italy, Malaysia, and the Philippines, 77 FR 39735 (July 5, 2012), and USITC Publication 4225 (June 2012), titled Stainless Steel Butt-Weld Pipe Fittings From Italy, Malaysia, and the Philippines (Investigation Nos. 731–TA–865–867 (Second Review)). VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:18 Jul 19, 2012 Jkt 226001 bolted fittings, and fittings made from any material other than stainless steel. The butt-weld fittings subject to the orders are generally designated under specification ASTM A403/A403M, the standard specification for Wrought Austenitic Stainless Steel Piping Fittings, or its foreign equivalents (e.g., DIN or JIS specifications). This specification covers two general classes of fittings, WP and CR, of wrought austenitic stainless steel fittings of seamless and welded construction covered by the latest revision of ANSI B16.9, ANSI B16.11, and ANSI B16.28. Butt-weld fittings manufactured to specification ASTM A774, or its foreign equivalents, are also covered by the orders. The orders do not apply to cast fittings. Cast austenitic stainless steel pipe fittings are covered by specifications A351/A351M, A743/ 743M, and A744/A744M. The butt-weld fittings subject to the orders are currently classifiable under subheading 7307.23.0000 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of the orders is dispositive. Continuation of the Orders As a result of the determinations by the Department and the Commission that revocation of the antidumping duty orders would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping and material injury to an industry in the United States, pursuant to section 751(d)(2) of the Act, the Department hereby orders the continuation of the antidumping duty orders on butt-weld pipe fittings from Italy, Malaysia, and the Philippines. U.S. Customs and Border Protection will continue to collect antidumping duty cash deposits at the rates in effect at the time of entry for all imports of subject merchandise. The effective date of the continuation of these orders will be the date of publication in the Federal Register of this notice of continuation. Pursuant to section 751(c)(2) of the Act, the Department intends to initiate the next sunset reviews of these orders not later than 30 days prior to the fifth anniversary of the effective date of continuation. These sunset reviews and this notice are in accordance with section 751(c) of the Act and published pursuant to section 777(i)(1) of the Act.

The Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council (Council) will convene public hearings on a proposed generic amendment addressing Federal seafood dealer permits.

The public hearings will begin at 6 p.m. and will conclude no later than 9 p.m. For specific dates, see SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Dr. John Froeschke, Fishery BiologistStatistician; Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council; telephone: (813) 348–1630 x235. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council will convene Public Hearings on a proposed generic amendment addressing Federal seafood dealer permits. A seafood dealer is the person who first receives fish by way of purchase, barter, or trade. Seafood dealers buy product from commercial fishermen and sell directly to restaurants, markets, other dealers, processors, or consumers without substantially altering the product. NOAA Fisheries Service issues Federal dealer permits on an annual basis to those individuals or organizations that wish to become a seafood dealer. The Gulf Council is considering changes the current permit and reporting requirements for those individuals or organizations that purchase species managed by the Gulf of Mexico and South Atlantic Councils to ensure landings of managed fish stocks are recorded accurately and in a timely manner so annual catch limits are not exceeded. Modification of fishery management plans would affect species managed solely by the Gulf of Mexico Council or the South Atlantic Councils, as well as species managed by both Councils. The nine public hearings will begin at 6 p.m. and conclude at the end of public testimony or no later than 9 p.m. at the following locations: SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 42699 Monday, August 6, 2012 Hilton Tampa Airport Westshore Hotel, 2225 N.
