SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) is rescinding the administrative review of the countervailing duty order on lightweight thermal paper from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) for the period January 1, 2011, through December 31, 2011. DATES: Effective Date: April 18, 2013. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mahnaz Khan, AD/CVD Operations, Office 1, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW., sroberts on DSK5SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:54 Apr 17, 2013 The Department initiated an administrative review of the countervailing duty order on lightweight thermal paper from the PRC covering the period January 1, 2011, through December 31, 2011, based on a request by Appleton Papers, Inc. (‘‘Petitioner’’). See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 77 FR 77017 (December 31, 2012). The review covers the following companies: Guangdong Guanhao HighTech Co., Ltd.; Henan Province Jianghe Paper Co., Ltd.; Jianghe Paper Co., Ltd.; JHT Paper; New Pride Co., Ltd.; and Shenzhen Taizhou Industrial Development Co., Ltd. On April 1, 2013, Petitioner withdrew its request for an administrative review of these companies. Jkt 229001 Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party that requested the review withdraws its request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. In this case, Petitioner withdrew its request within the 90-day deadline and no other parties requested an administrative review of the countervailing duty order. Therefore, we are rescinding the administrative review of lightweight thermal paper from the PRC covering the period January 1, 2011, through December 31, 2011. The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to assess countervailing duties on all entries of lightweight thermal paper from the PRC during the POR at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated countervailing duties required at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of this notice. Notifications This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of countervailing duties prior to Frm 00019 Dated: April 11, 2013.

Authority

    The issuance of permits, as required by the Endangered Species Act 
of 1973 (16 U.S.C. 1531-1543) (ESA), is based on a finding that such 
permits: (1) Are applied for in good faith; (2) would not operate to 
the disadvantage of the listed species that are the subject of the 
permits; and, (3) are consistent with the purposes and policies set 
forth in section 2 of the ESA. Authority to take listed species is 
subject to conditions set forth in the permits. Permits are issued in 
accordance with and are subject to the ESA and NMFS regulations (50 CFR 
parts 222-226) governing listed fish and wildlife permits.

Species Covered in This Notice

    This notice is relevant to the federally endangered Southern 
California Distinct Population Segment of steelhead (Oncorhynchus 
mykiss).

Permit Issued

    A notice of the receipt of an application for Permit 15610 was 
published in the Federal Register on November 14, 2012 (77 FR 67796). 
Permit 15610 was issued to OSU on March 4, 2013. Permit 15610 
authorizes OSU to conduct a scientific study of steelhead on several 
streams in the Ventura River watershed in Ventura County, California. 
The primary objectives of this study are to (1) determine if population 
genetic structure exists in the steelhead and rainbow trout 
subpopulations in the Ventura Basin, (2) determine smoltification 
patterns of steelhead and rainbow trout in the Ventura Basin and 
influence between the two life history forms, and (3) determine 
downstream migration patterns for steelhead and rainbow trout and how 
those patterns may be influenced by environmental conditions.
    Research activities include (1) monitoring water temperature, (2) 
capturing smolts and adult steelhead in a migrant trap at the Robles 
Diversion Dam, (3) capturing smolts and juvenile steelhead using a 
seine in the Ventura River estuary, (4) capturing smolts and juvenile 
steelhead by electrofishing pre-determined sample sites throughout the 
Ventura River watershed, (5) recording weight and length of smolts and 
juvenile steelhead, (6) removing tissue (gill and fin clip) samples 
from smolts and juvenile steelhead, (7) analyzing fin clips for genetic 
structure, (8) analyzing gill samples for ATPase (decomposition of 
adenosine triphosphate (ATP) into adenosine diphosphate and a free 
phosphate ion as an indicator of smoltification, and (9) inserting 
Passive Integrated Transponder (PIT) tags into smolts and juvenile 
steelhead.
    Permit 15610 authorizes the non-lethal capture and release of up to 
210 juvenile steelhead (30 juvenile steelhead from 7 different sites) 
over the course of 1 year for the purpose of genetic sampling (fin 
clip), the capture and release of up to 684 steelhead smolts (342 
smolts annually over 2 years of sampling) and 304 juvenile steelhead 
(152 juvenile steelhead annually over 2 years of sampling) for the 
purpose of PIT tagging and tissue (gill/ATPase) sampling, capture and 
release of up to 10 adult steelhead (5 adults annually over 2 years of 
sampling) for genetic sampling (fin clip), and up to 40 tissue samples 
(fin clip) from adult steelhead carcasses (20 adult carcasses annually 
over 2 years of sampling). The authorized unintentional lethal take for 
Permit 15610 is a total of 9 juvenile steelhead and 16 steelhead 
smolts. All mortalities will be sent to NMFS Protected Resources 
Division in Long Beach, California for genetic research and processing. 
Field activities associated with Permit 15610 began after the permit 
was issued on March 4, 2013, and will cease when the permit expires on 
May 31, 2015.
