Light-Walled Rectangular Pipe and Tube From Mexico: Preliminary Results and Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2011-2012, 54864-54866 [2013-21775]

Download as PDF mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 54864 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 173 / Friday, September 6, 2013 / Notices from the U.S. Department of the Treasury to make those determinations for larger annexations that met prescribed criteria and for newly formed general-purpose governmental units. The General Revenue Sharing Program ended on September 30, 1986, but the certification program continued into 1988 with support from the Census Bureau. The program was suspended to accommodate the taking of the 1990 decennial census and resumed in 1992. The Census Bureau supported the program through fiscal year 1995 for cities with large annexations and through fiscal year 1996 for newly incorporated places. The program was continued on a fee-basis only until June 1, 1998, at which time it was suspended for the 2000 decennial census (see Notice of Suspension, 63 FR 27706 (May 20, 1998)). At that time, it was stated that the program would resume in three years; however, resumption was delayed by continuing resource demands of the 2000 decennial census. In 2002, the program resumed and continued until January 1, 2008, when it was suspended to accommodate the taking of the 2010 Census (see 72 FR 46602 (Aug. 21, 2007)). Although there is no legal requirement that the Census Bureau provide this service, there is a demand by governmental units for 2010 Census population and housing counts certified to reflect boundary updates or the formation of new governmental units dated after January 1, 2010, (the legally effective date for boundaries used in tabulating the 2010 Census). Title 13, United States Code (U.S.C.), Section 8, allows the Census Bureau to continue this program by providing certain statistical materials (certified population and housing counts) upon payment of costs for the service. The Census Bureau is the sole provider of this service, which is based on processing individual 2010 Census enumeration records protected by the confidentiality restrictions of Title 13, U.S.C. A geographically updated population certification from the Census Bureau confirms that an official population count is an accurate retabulation of the 2010 Census population as configured for the new boundaries. A population certification may be needed for many reasons. For example, general-purpose governments may be required by state law to produce a Census Bureau population certification for funds disbursement from their respective states, or federally sponsored programs may require or honor a Census Bureau population certification for program eligibility. Special-purpose governmental units also may need VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:05 Sep 05, 2013 Jkt 229001 official certification of census population and housing counts for other purposes. The Census Bureau is reinstating a fee-based program that will use current geographic and demographic programs to support customer requests. The final fee structure will reflect variations in resources needed to meet customer requirements for certifications of standard governmental units, and will be posted on the Census Bureau’s Web site at: www.census.gov/mso/www/ certification. The fees will depend on the extent of geographic processing tasks required to complete the certification request and on the urgency of the request. There are two types of fees, based upon whether the population certificate is generated through an annually scheduled geographic update process, or is expedited in order to meet customer needs. Requests for certifications must contain information on Form BC– 1869(EF), ‘‘Request for Geographically Updated Official Population Certification’’ (see the Census Bureau’s Web site, www.census.gov/mso/www/ certification). Local governments may submit requests for certifications on Form BC–1869(EF) to the Census Bureau by email at Clmso.Certify.List@ census.gov or via fax at (301) 763–3842. Form BC–1869(EF) will be available on the Census Bureau’s Web site at: http:// www.census.gov/mso/www/ certification. A letter or email communication requesting the service without Form BC–1869(EF) will be accepted only if it contains the information necessary to complete a Form BC–1869(EF). Paperwork Reduction Act Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person is required to respond to, nor shall a person be subject to a penalty for failure to comply with, a collection of information subject to the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA), Title 44, U.S.C., Chapter 35, unless that collection of information displays a current Office of Management and Budget control number. This notice does not represent a collection of information and is not subject to the PRA’s requirements. The form referenced in the notice, Form BC– 1869(EF), will collect only information necessary to process a certification request. As such, it is not subject to the PRA’s requirements.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract This request is for an extension of a currently approved information collection. The Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972 (MMPA; 16 U.S.C. 1361 et seq.) prohibits the ‘‘take’’ of marine mammals unless otherwise authorized or exempted by law. Among the provisions that allow for lawful take of marine mammals, sections 101(a)(5)(A) and (D) of the MMPA direct the Secretary of Commerce to allow, upon request, the incidental, but not intentional, taking of small numbers of marine mammals by U.S. citizens who engage in a specified activity (other than commercial fishing), within a specified geographical region if, after notice of a proposed authorization to the public for review and public comment: (1) We make certain findings; and (2) the taking is limited to harassment. We (National Marine Fisheries Service) shall grant authorization for the incidental taking of small numbers of marine mammals if we find that the taking will have a negligible impact on the species or stock(s), and will not have an unmitigable adverse impact on the availability of the species or stock(s) for subsistence uses (where relevant). The authorization must set forth the permissible methods of taking; other means of effecting the least practicable adverse impact on the species or stock and its habitat; and requirements pertaining to the mitigation, monitoring and reporting of such taking. We have defined ‘‘negligible impact’’ in 50 CFR 216.103 as ‘‘. . . an impact resulting from the specified activity that cannot be reasonably expected to, and is not reasonably likely to, adversely affect the species or stock through effects on annual rates of recruitment or survival.’’ PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Issuance of an incidental take authorization (Authorization) under section 101(a)(5)(A) or 101(a)(5)(D) of the MMPA requires three sets of information collection: (1) A complete application for an Authorization, as set forth in our implementing regulations at 50 CFR 216.104, which provides the information necessary for us to make the necessary statutory determinations; (2) information relating to required monitoring; and (3) information related to required reporting. These collections of information enable us to: (1) Evaluate the proposed activity’s impact on marine mammals; (2) arrive at the appropriate determinations required by the MMPA and other applicable laws prior to issuing the authorization; and (3) monitor impacts of activities for which we have issued Authorizations to determine if our predictions regarding impacts on marine mammals remain valid. II. Method of Collection Respondents have a choice of submitting either electronic or paper forms. Methods of submittal include email, mail, overnight delivery service, and/or facsimile transmissions. III. Data OMB Control Number: 0648–0151. Form Number: None. Type of Review: Regular submission (extension of a currently approved information collection). Affected Public: Non-profit institutions; state, local, or tribal government; business or other for-profit organizations. Estimated Number of Respondents: 95. Estimated Time per Response: 255 hours for an Incidental Harassment Authorization (IHA) application; 11 hours for an IHA interim report (if applicable); 115 hours for an IHA draft annual report; 14 hours for an IHA final annual report (if applicable); 1,100 hours for the initial preparation of an application for new regulations; 70 hours for an annual Letter of Authorization (LOA) application; 220 hours for a LOA draft annual report; 65 hours for a LOA final annual report (if applicable); 625 hours for a LOA draft comprehensive report; and 300 hours for a LOA final comprehensive report. Response times will vary for the public based upon the complexity of the requested action. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 14,109.

Partial Rescission of Administrative Review

    On August 31, 2012, NASA requested that the Department conduct a 
review of its exports of subject merchandise to the United States, and 
on November 1, 2012, NASA timely withdrew this request. NASA was the 
only interested party to request an administrative review of its 
exports of subject merchandise. Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.213(d)(1), we are rescinding this administrative review with 
respect to NASA.

Methodology

    The Department has conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). For a

    \4\ See 19 CFR 351.309(d).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Any interested party may request a hearing within 30 days of 
publication of this notice.\5\ Hearing requests should contain the 
following information: (1) The party's name, address, and telephone 
number; (2) the number of participants; and (3) a list of the issues to 
be discussed. Oral presentations will be limited to issues raised in 
the briefs. If a request for a hearing is made, parties will be 
notified of the time and date for the hearing to be held at the U.S. 
Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 
20230.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See 19 CFR 351.310(c).
    \6\ See 19 CFR 351.310(d).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department will issue the final results of this administrative 
review, which will include the results of its analysis of all issues 
raised in any such comments, within 120 days of publication of these 
preliminary results, pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of this administrative review, the Department shall 
determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. If either respondent's 
weighted-average dumping margin is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less 
than 0.50 percent) in the final results of this review, we will 
calculate importer-specific assessment rates on the basis of the ratio 
of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer's examined 
sales and the total entered value of those sales in accordance with 19 
CFR 351.212(b)(1).\7\ Where either the respondent's weighted-average 
dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer-specific 
assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ In these preliminary results, the Department applied the 
weighted-average dumping margin calculation method adopted in 
Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping 
Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Duty Proceedings; 
Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003.\8\ This clarification will apply to entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR that were produced by the companies included 
in these preliminary results of review and for which the reviewed 
companies did not know that the merchandise was destined for the United 
States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate un-
reviewed entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the 
intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: 
Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In accordance with 19 CFR 356.8(a), the Department intends to issue 
assessment instructions to CBP on or after 41 days following the 
publication of the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective, upon 
completion of the final results of this administrative review, for all 
shipments of LWR pipe and tube from Mexico entered, or withdrawn from

Notifications

    This notice serves as a preliminary reminder to importers 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 antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213.

    Dated: August 30, 2013.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
