Individuals who use telecommunication devices for the deaf (TDD) may call the Federal Information Relay Service (FIRS) at 1–800–877–8339 between 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. (Eastern time), Monday through Friday. More information on the planning process can also be found on the Francis Marion National Forest Web site at www.fs.usda.gov/goto/scnfs/fmplan. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to the 2012 Forest Planning Rule (36 CFR Part 219), the planning process encompases three-stages: assessment, plan revision, and monitoring. The first stage of the planning process involves assessing social, economic, and ecological conditions of the planning area, which is documented in an assessment report. A draft of the assessment report for the Francis Marion NF is being completed and will be available by October 11, 2013 on the Forest Web site at www.fs.usda.gov/ goto/scnfs/fmplan. This notice announces the start of the second stage of the planning process, which is the development of the land management plan revision. The first task of plan revision is to develop a preliminary ‘‘need for change’’, which identifies the need to change management direction in current plans due to changing conditions or other monitoring information. The next task is to develop a proposed action, which is a proposal on how to respond to needs for changes. We are inviting the public to help us develop our preliminary ‘‘need for change’’ and a proposed action. A proposed action will initiate our compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act. A Notice of Intent to prepare an environmental impact statement for the land mangement plan revision, which will include a description of the preliminary need for change and a description of the proposed action, will be published around January to February 2014 in the Federal Register. Forest plans developed under the National Forest Management Act (NFMA) of 1976 describe the strategic direction for management of forest resources for ten to fifteen years, and are adaptive and amendable as conditions changes over time. The Forest Plan for the Francis Marion NF was approved in VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:06 Sep 27, 2013 Jkt 229001 1995. On October 17, 2012, a public announcement was made that the Francis Marion NF was beginning to work on the Assessment for revising their Forest Plan. This notice announces the start of the second stage of the planning process, the development of the land management plan revision. Once the plan revision is completed, it will be subject to the objection procedures of 36 CFR Part 219, Subpart B, before it can be approved. The third stage of the planning process is the monitoring and evaluation of the revised plan, which is ongoing over the life of the revised plan. As public meetings, other opportunities for public engagement, and public review and comment opportunties are identified to assist with the development of the forest plan revision, public announcements will be made, notifications will be posted on the Forest’s Web site at www.fs.usda.gov/goto/scnfs/fmplan and information will be sent out to the Forest’s mailing list. If anyone is interested in being on the Forest’s mailing list to receive these notifications, please contact Mary Morrison, the Forest Planner, at the address identified above, or by sending an email to comments-southernfrancismarion-sumter@fs.fed.us.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The AD order on fish fillets from Vietnam was published on August 12, VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:06 Sep 27, 2013 Jkt 229001 2003.1 On September 3, 2013, pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), and 19 CFR 351.214(b), the Department received an NSR request from Thanh Hung Co., Ltd. D/B/A Thanh Hung Frozen Seafood Processing Import Export Co., Ltd. (‘‘Thanh Hung’’).2 Thanh Hung certified that it is a producer and exporter of the subject merchandise and that it exported, or has sold for export, subject merchandise to the United States.3 Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(I) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(i), Thanh Hung certified that it did not export subject merchandise to the United States during the period of investigation (‘‘POI’’).4 In addition, pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B)(i)(II) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(A), Thanh Hung certified that, since the initiation of the investigation, it has never been affiliated with any Vietnamese exporter or producer who exported subject merchandise to the United States during the POI, including those respondents not individually examined during the investigation.5 As required by 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iii)(B), Thanh Hung also certified that its export activities were not controlled by the central government of Vietnam.6 In addition to the certifications described above, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iv), Thanh Hung submitted documentation establishing the following: (1) The date on which it first shipped subject merchandise for export to the United States; (2) the volume of its first shipment; and (3) the date of its first sale to an unaffiliated customer in the United States.7 Finally, the Department conducted a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) database query and confirmed the price, quantity, date of sale, and date of entry of the sale at issue. In addition, the Department confirmed that the data on any subsequent shipments corresponds with the information provided by Thanh Hung.8 1 See Notice of Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Frozen Fish Fillets From the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, 68 FR 47909 (August 12, 2003). 2 See Letter from Thanh Hung, re: Request for New Shipper Review: Certain Frozen Fish Fillets from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Review Period—8/1/12–7/31/13, dated September 3, 2013. 3 Id. at 2 and Exhibit 1. 4 Id. 5 Id. 6 Id. 7 Id. at Exhibits 2, 3, and 4; see also Memorandum to the File, from Susan Pulongbarit, ‘‘Certain Frozen Fish Fillets from the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Placing CBP Data on the Record’’ (‘‘CBP Memo’’), dated concurrently with this notice and herein incorporated by reference. 8 See Memorandum to the File from Scot Fullerton, Program Manager, ‘‘Certain Frozen Fish PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 59915 Initiation of New Shipper Review Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(d)(1), and based on the documentation provided by Thanh Hung, we find that the request submitted by Thanh Hung meets the requirements for initiation of the NSR for shipments of fish fillets from Vietnam.9 The POR is August 1, 2012, through July 31, 2013.10 Absent a determination that the case is extraordinarily complicated, the Department intends to issue the preliminary results of this NSR within 180 days from the date of initiation and the final results within 270 days from the date of initiation.11 It is the Department’s usual practice, in cases involving non-market economies, to require that a company seeking to establish eligibility for an AD rate separate from the country-wide rate provide evidence of de jure and de facto absence of government control over the company’s export activities. Accordingly, we will issue a questionnaire to Thanh Hung that will include a separate-rate section. The review of Thanh Hung will proceed if the response provides sufficient indication that it is not subject to either de jure or de facto government control with respect to its exports of fish fillets. We will instruct CBP to allow, at the option of the importer, the posting, until the completion of the review, of a bond or security in lieu of a cash deposit for each entry of the subject merchandise from the requesting company in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(e). Because Thanh Hung certified that it both produced and exported the subject merchandise, the sale of which is the basis for the new-shipper request for review, we will instruct CBP to permit the use of a bond only for subject merchandise which Thanh Hung both produced and exported. Interested parties requiring access to proprietary information in this NSR should submit applications for disclosure under administrative protective order, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305 and 19 CFR 351.306. This initiation and notice are in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act, 19 CFR 351.214, and 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i).

Foreign-Trade Zone 160--Anchorage, Alaska; Application for 
Reorganization Under Alternative Site Framework

    An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones (FTZ) 
Board by the Municipality of Anchorage, grantee of FTZ 160, requesting 
authority to reorganize the zone under the alternative site framework 
(ASF) adopted by the FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.2(c)). The ASF is an option 
for grantees for the establishment or reorganization of zones and can 
permit significantly greater flexibility in the designation of new 
subzones or ``usage-driven'' FTZ sites for operators/users located 
within a grantee's ``service area'' in the context of the FTZ Board's 
standard 2,000-acre activation limit for a zone. The application was 
submitted pursuant to the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 
U.S.C. 81a-81u), and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR part 400). It 
was formally docketed on September 19, 2013.
    FTZ 160 was approved by the FTZ Board on July 18, 1989 (Board Order 
437, 54 FR 31355, 07/28/1989). The current zone includes the following 
sites: Site 1 (56.89 acres)--the Port of Anchorage and Port of 
Anchorage Industrial Park, 1075 Dock Rd., 1076 Ocean Dock Rd. and 1601 
Tidewater Rd, Anchorage; Site 2 (920 acres)--Anchorage International 
Airport, Postmark Drive and International Airport Rd, Anchorage; Site 3 
(2.7 acres)--315 East 2nd Ave., Anchorage; Site 4 (25 acres)--Altman/
Greenbrier Partnership site, 1800 West 48th Ave., Anchorage; Site 5 
(2.3 acres)--619 East Ship Creek Ave., Anchorage; Site 6 (12.2 acres)--
Douglas Management Company, 660 Western Dr., Anchorage; and, Site 7 
(135 acres)--Eklunta Inc., Birchwood Loop Rd. and Birchwood Airport 
Rd., Anchorage.
    The grantee's proposed service area under the ASF would be the 
Municipality of Anchorage, Alaska, as described in the application. If 
approved, the grantee would be able to serve sites throughout the 
service area based on companies' needs for FTZ designation. The 
proposed service area is within and adjacent to the Anchorage U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection port of entry.
    The applicant is requesting authority to reorganize its existing 
zone project to include all of the existing sites as ``magnet'' sites. 
The ASF allows for the possible exemption of one magnet site from the 
``sunset'' time limits that generally apply to sites under the ASF, and 
the applicant proposes that Site 1 be so exempted. No subzones/usage-
driven sites are being requested at this time. The application would 
have no impact on FTZ 160's previously authorized subzone.

the FTZ Staff is designated examiner to evaluate and analyze the facts 
and information presented in the application and case record and to
