No respondent has participated in this investigation. Therefore, as noted in the Preliminary Determination, because the only dumping margins for this final determination are found in the petition, the all others rate is a simple average of these values, which is 69.98 percent.5 Disclosure We intend to disclose to parties in this proceeding the calculations performed within five days of the date of publication of this notice in accordance with section 351.224(b) of the Department’s regulations. International Trade Commission Notification In accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, we have notified the International Trade Commission (‘‘ITC’’) of our final determination. As our final determination is affirmative and in accordance with section 735(b)(2) of the Act, the ITC will determine, within 45 days, whether the domestic industry in the United States is materially injured, or threatened with material injury, by reason of imports or sales (or the likelihood of sales) for importation of the subject merchandise. If the ITC determines that such injury does exist, the Department will issue an antidumping duty order directing CBP to assess antidumping duties on all imports of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the effective date of the suspension of liquidation. erowe on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order This notice also 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 section 351.305 of the Department’s regulations. Timely notification of the destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested.

PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 62493 In 2010, we implemented a new suite of regulations for the Northeast (NE) multispecies fishery through Amendment 16 to the Multispecies Fishery Management Plan (Amendment 16). This action updated status determination criteria for all regulated NE multispecies or ocean pout stocks; adopted rebuilding programs for NE multispecies stocks newly classified as being overfished and subject to overfishing; revised management measures, including significant revisions to the sector management measures, necessary to end overfishing, rebuild overfished regulated NE multispecies and ocean pout stocks, and mitigate the adverse economic impacts of increased effort controls. It also implemented new requirements under Amendment 16 for establishing acceptable biological catch (ABC), annual catch limits (ACLs), and accountability measures (AMs) for each stock managed under the FMP, pursuant to the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act). Revisions: Not all measures that were included in Amendment 16 were ultimately approved, including the Gulf of Maine Sink Gillnet Pilot Program, which would have necessitated a Letter of Authorization (LOA) had it been approved. Therefore, we propose to remove this requirement from the information collection. In addition, Framework 47 to the Multispecies FMP removed Restricted Gear Requirements from the regulations. Therefore the requirement to declare into these areas via vessel monitoring system (VMS), or to receive an LOA are also proposed to be removed from this information collection. In an attempt to consolidate reporting requirements that are mandated by the NE multispecies regulation, we propose moving some requirements out of OMB Control No. 0648–0202, Northeast Region Permit Family of Forms, and into this collection, including: The Days-at-Sea (DAS) Transfer Program, Expedited Submission of Proposed Special Access Programs (SAPs), and North Atlantic Fisheries Organization (NAFO) Reporting Requirements.

This request is to collect information to accomplish those evaluations. Section 1458 of the CZMA and implementing regulations at 15 CFR part 923, Subpart L, require that state coastal management programs be evaluated concerning the extent to which the state has implemented and enforced the program approved by the Secretary, addressed the coastal management needs identified in 16 U.S.C. 1452(2)(A) through (K), and adhered to the terms of any grant, loan, or cooperative agreement funded under the CZMA. Section 1461(f) of the CZMA and implementing regulations at 15 CFR Part 921, Subpart E, require that national estuarine research reserves be evaluated with regard to their operation and management, including education and interpretive activities, the research being conducted within the reserve, and be evaluated in accordance with section 1458 of the CZMA and procedures set forth in 15 CFR part 923. NOAA’s Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management (OCRM) conducts periodic evaluations of the 34 coastal management programs and 28 research reserves and produces written findings for each evaluation. OCRM has access to documents submitted in cooperative agreement applications, performance reports, and certain documentation required by the CZMA and implementing regulations. However, additional information from each coastal management program and research reserve, as well as information from the program and reserve partners and stakeholders with whom each works, is necessary to evaluate against statutory and regulatory requirements. Different information collection subsets are necessary for (1) coastal management programs, (2) their partners and stakeholders, (3) research reserves, and (4) their partners and stakeholders. II. Method of Collection Coastal program and reserve manager respondents will receive information requests/questionnaires via email, and submittals will be made via email. Partners and stakeholders of coastal management programs and of reserves will receive a link to a web-based survey E:\FR\FM\15OCN1.SGM 15OCN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    This request is for revision and extension of a current information 
collection. Under the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and 
Management Act, the Secretary of Commerce has the responsibility for 
the conservation and management of marine fishery resources. We, 
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) National 
Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), and the Regional Fishery Management 
Councils are delegated the majority of this responsibility. The New 
England Fishery Management Council (Council) develops management plans 
for fishery resources in New England.
    In 2010, we implemented a new suite of regulations for the 
Northeast (NE) multispecies fishery through Amendment 16 to the 
Multispecies Fishery Management Plan (Amendment 16). This action 
updated status determination criteria for all regulated NE multispecies 
or ocean pout stocks; adopted rebuilding programs for NE multispecies 
stocks newly classified as being overfished and subject to overfishing; 
revised management measures, including significant revisions to the 
sector management measures, necessary to end overfishing, rebuild 
overfished regulated NE multispecies and ocean pout stocks, and 
mitigate the adverse economic impacts of increased effort controls. It 
also implemented new requirements under Amendment 16 for establishing 
acceptable biological catch (ABC), annual catch limits (ACLs), and 
accountability measures (AMs) for each stock managed under the FMP, 
pursuant to the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management 
Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act).
    Revisions:
    Not all measures that were included in Amendment 16 were ultimately 
approved, including the Gulf of Maine Sink Gillnet Pilot Program, which 
would have necessitated a Letter of Authorization (LOA) had it been 
approved. Therefore, we propose to remove this requirement from the 
information collection. In addition, Framework 47 to the Multispecies 
FMP removed Restricted Gear Requirements from the regulations. 
Therefore the requirement to declare into these areas via vessel 
monitoring system (VMS), or to receive an LOA are also proposed to be 
removed from this information collection.
    In an attempt to consolidate reporting requirements that are 
mandated by the NE multispecies regulation, we propose moving some 
requirements out of OMB Control No. 0648-0202, Northeast Region Permit 
Family of Forms, and into this collection, including: The Days-at-Sea 
(DAS) Transfer Program, Expedited Submission of Proposed Special Access 
Programs (SAPs), and North Atlantic Fisheries Organization (NAFO) 
Reporting Requirements.

II. Method of Collection

    Respondents must submit either paper forms via postal service, or 
electronic forms submitted via the internet or vessels' vessel 
monitoring system (VMS).
