The bumphead parrotfish is a coral reef-associated species that occurs in 45 countries in the Indo-Pacific area, including some U.S. Territories. After reviewing the best scientific and commercial data available, we have determined that the bumphead parrotfish is not warranted for listing under the ESA because the species still occupies its historical range, although at a lower and declining abundance, but with biological characteristics and management measures that support the population above the viability threshold. Based on these considerations, described in more detail in this notice, we conclude that the bumphead parrotfish is not currently in danger of extinction throughout all or a significant portion of its range, and not SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\07NON1.SGM 07NON1

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise covered by the order is silicomanganese. 
Silicomanganese, which is sometimes called ferrosilicon manganese, is a 
ferroalloy composed principally of manganese, silicon and iron, and 
normally contains much smaller proportions of minor elements, such as 
carbon, phosphorus, and sulfur. Silicomanganese generally contains by 
weight not less than 4 percent iron, more than 30 percent manganese, 
more than 8 percent silicon, and not more than 3 percent phosphorous. 
All compositions, forms, and sizes of silicomanganese are included 
within the scope of the order, including silicomanganese slag, fines, 
and briquettes. Silicomanganese is used primarily in steel production 
as a source of both silicon and manganese.
    Silicomanganese is currently classifiable under subheading 
7202.30.0000 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States 
(HTSUS). Some silicomanganese may also currently be classifiable under 
HTSUS subheading 7202.99.5040. The order covers all silicomanganese, 
regardless of its tariff classification. Although the HTSUS subheadings 
are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written 
description of the order remains dispositive.

Determination

    As a result of the determination by the ITC that revocation of the 
AD order would not be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of 
material injury to an industry in the United States, pursuant to 
section 751(d)(2) of the Act, the Department is revoking the AD order 
on silicomanganese from Brazil. Pursuant to section 751(d)(2) of the 
Act and 19 CFR 351.222(i)(2)(i), the effective date of revocation is 
September 14, 2011 (i.e., the fifth anniversary of the effective date 
of publication in the Federal Register of the most recent notice of 
continuation of this order).\4\

days after publication of this notice, to terminate suspension of 
liquidation and collection of cash deposits on entries of the subject 
merchandise, entered or withdrawn from warehouse, on or after September 
14, 2011. Entries of subject merchandise prior to the effective date of
