See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 77 FR 77017 (December 31, 2012) (‘‘Initiation Notice’’). The review covers 203 companies. See Initiation Notice. No other party requested a review. On March 27, 2013, U.S. Steel withdrew its request for an administrative review in its entirety. Rescission of Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department will rescind an administrative review if the party that requested the review withdraws its request within 90 days of the publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. In this case, U.S. Steel withdrew its request within the 90-day deadline and no other party requested an administrative review of the antidumping duty order. Therefore, we are rescinding the administrative review of seamless carbon and alloy steel standard, line, and pressure pipe from the People’s Republic of China for the period November 1, 2011, through October 31, 2012. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Assessment The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries.

The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of this notice. Notifications This notice serves as a final reminder to importers for whom this review is being rescinded of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (‘‘APO’’) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305, which continues VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:43 Jun 04, 2013 Jkt 229001 to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding.

Background NMFS’ authority to make the loan resides in sections 1111 and 1112 of the Merchant Marine Act, 1936 (46 App. U.S.C. 1279(f) and 1279(g) (MMA) (title XI)). The Program was authorized in the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2005 (Section 209 of Title II of Division B of Pub. L. 108–447) and waives all of the fishing capacity reduction program requirements of the Magnuson-Stevens Act (Sections 312(b)–(e)) codified at 16 PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 U.S.C. 1801 et seq. except for Sections (b)(1)(C) and (d) which state: (1) It must be cost-effective; and (2) it is subject to a referendum approved by a majority of permit holders. NMFS published proposed program regulations on May 23, 2011 (76 FR 29707), and final program regulations on October 6, 2011 (76 FR 61985), to implement the reduction program. Subsequently, the Southeast Revitalization Association submitted a capacity reduction plan to NMFS. NMFS approved the plan on February 24, 2012. NMFS published the list of eligible voters on March 1, 2012 (77 FR 12568) and the notice of referendum period on March 29, 2012 (77 FR 19004). Interested persons should review these for further program details. NMFS conducted a referendum where the majority of permit holders voted to repay a fishing capacity reduction loan to purchase the permits identified in the reduction plan. On May 7, 2012, NMFS published another Federal Register document (77 FR 26744) advising the public that NMFS would tender the program’s reduction payments to the 64 selected bidders who would permanently stop fishing with the permits they had relinquished in return for reduction payments. Subsequently, NMFS disbursed $13,133,030 in reduction payments to the 64 selected bidders. NMFS published a Federal Register notice on July 16, 2012 (77 FR 41754), informing the public that fee collection would begin on July 22, 2012. Since then, all harvesters of Southeast Alaska purse seine salmon must pay the fee and all fish buyers of Southeast Alaska purse seine salmon must collect the fee in accordance with the applicable regulations. II. Purpose The purpose of this notice is to adjust the fee rate for the reduction fishery in accordance with the framework rule’s 50 CFR 600.1013(b). Section 600.1013(b) directs NMFS to recalculate the fee to a rate that will be reasonably necessary to ensure reduction loan repayment within the specified 40 year term. The initial fee applicable to the Southeast Alaska purse seine salmon program’s reduction fishery was 3.00% of landed value and any subsequent bonus payments. NMFS has determined that this is more than is needed to service the loan. Therefore, NMFS is decreasing the fee rate to 1.50% of landed value and any subsequent bonus payments which NMFS has determined is sufficient to ensure timely loan repayment.

The requested permit has been issued under the authority of the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972, as amended (16 U.S.C. 1361 et seq.) and the regulations governing the taking and importing of marine mammals (50 CFR part 216). Permit No. 17941 authorizes two photography/filming projects. The first consists of helicopter flights over Florida Bay to film bottlenose dolphins mud-ring feeding. A maximum of 400 dolphins may be harassed during the filming. The second project focuses on areas where spinner dolphins and humans interact in Hawaii. Locations include the west side of Oahu and four bays on the Kona coast of Hawaii Island. Methods include both vessel-based and underwater photography. Up to 75 spinner dolphins may be approached within 50 yards during the filming. Four pantropical spotted dolphins (Stenella attenuata) may also be approached if they are associated with spinner dolphins. Images and video from both locations will be used for a feature story in National Geographic Magazine on dolphin cognition and intelligence. The permit expires on March 31, 2014. In compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), a final determination has been made that the activity proposed is categorically excluded from the requirement to prepare an environmental assessment or environmental impact statement.
