Download as PDF 60106 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 191 / Tuesday, October 2, 2012 / Notices provided for convenience and customs purposes, the Department’s written description of the merchandise under the orders is dispositive. Initiation of Changed Circumstances Reviews Pursuant to section 751(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), the Department will conduct a changed circumstances review upon receipt of a request from an interested party or receipt of information concerning an antidumping or countervailing duty order which shows changed circumstances sufficient to warrant a review of the order.6 Section 351.222(g) of the Department’s regulations provides that the Department will conduct a changed circumstances review under 19 CFR 351.216, and may revoke an order in whole or in part, if it determines that the producers accounting for substantially all of the production of the domestic like product have expressed a lack of interest in the order, in whole or in part.7 In the event that the Department concludes that expedited action is warranted, 19 CFR 351.221(c)(3)(ii) and 19 CFR 351.222(f)(2)(iv) permit the Department to combine the notices of initiation and preliminary results. Based on the information petitioners provided in their CCR Request and Supplemental CCR Request, the Department has determined that changed circumstances sufficient to warrant the reviews exist.8 Both the Act and the Department’s regulations require that ‘‘substantially all’’ domestic producers express a lack of interest in the Order for the Department to revoke.9 The Department has interpreted ‘‘substantially all’’ to represent producers accounting for at least 85 percent of U.S. production of the domestic like product.10 Because the data provided in the petitioners’ request did not indicate that they account for 85 percent of domestic honey production, we are not combining this notice of initiation with a preliminary determination pursuant to 19 CFR 351.221(c)(3)(ii). Interested parties are, therefore, requested to address the issue of industry support in their comments. 6 See also 19 CFR 351.216. section 782(h) of the Act and section 351.222(g)(1) of the Department’s regulations. 8 See 19 CFR 351.216(d). 9 See 782(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.222(g). 10 See Certain Orange Juice from Brazil: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review and Intent Not to Revoke, In Part, 73 FR 60241, 60242 (October 10, 2008), unchanged in Certain Orange Juice From Brazil: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review, 74 FR 4733 (January 27, 2009). wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 7 See VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:04 Oct 01, 2012 Jkt 229001 This notice of initiation will accord all interested parties an opportunity to address these proposed revocations.11 In accordance with section 751(b) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.216, 351.221, and 351.222, based on an affirmative statement of no interest by the domestic parties in continuing the AD and CVD orders with respect to honey from Argentina, as described above, we are initiating these changed circumstances administrative reviews. If, as a result of these reviews, we revoke the Orders, we intend to instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to end the suspension of liquidation of the subject merchandise on the effective date of the final notice of revocation, and to refund any estimated antidumping duties collected, for all unliquidated entries of such merchandise made on or after December 1, 2010, for the AD Order, and December 1, 2011, for the CVD Order. We will also instruct CBP to pay interest on such refunds in accordance with section 778 of the Act. Public Comment Interested parties are invited to comment on the initiation of these changed circumstances reviews. Parties who submit argument in these proceedings are requested to submit with the argument (1) a statement of the issue, and (2) a brief summary of the argument. All written comments may be submitted by interested parties not later than 5 p.m. Eastern Standard Time within 14 days after the date of publication of this notice in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303, and filed electronically using Import Administration’s Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (IA ACCESS). The Department will publish in the Federal Register a notice of preliminary results of these changed circumstances reviews, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(c)(3), which will set forth the factual and legal conclusions upon which our preliminary results are based, and a description of any action proposed based on those results. This notice of initiation is in accordance with section 751(b)(1) of the Act, 19 CFR 351.216(b) and (d), and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(1). 11 See, e.g., Certain Corrosion-Resistant Carbon Steel Flat Products and Cut-to-Length Carbon Steel Plate Products from Germany: Initiation of Countervailing Duty Changed Circumstances Reviews, 68 FR 67657 (December 3, 2003), and Stainless Steel Plate in Coils from Italy: Final Results of Countervailing Duty Changed Circumstances Review and Revocation of Countervailing Duty Order, in Whole, 71 FR 15380 (March 28, 2006).

The revised management plans outline the administrative structure; the research, education, training, and stewardship goals of the reserve; and the plans for future land acquisition and facility development to support reserve operations. The Rookery Bay Reserve takes an integrated approach to management, linking research, education, training and stewardship functions to address high priority issues within the 110,000 acre Reserve including land use changes affecting freshwater inflow, loss of native biodiversity, lack of public awareness and community involvement in stewardship, incompatible use by visitors, and ecological impacts of catastrophic change events. The Reserve’s Environmental Learning Center provides excellent visitor education experiences and a connecting pedestrian bridge connects visitors to a boardwalk and interpretive trails. The Kachemak Bay Reserve takes an integrated approach to management by linking research, education, and training functions within the 372,000 acre Reserve to address high priority issues including climate change and harvested species, such as salmon and shellfish. The Reserve will continue research on coastal dynamics, monitoring of invasive species and harmful algal blooms, and will transfer information to coastal decision makers.
