Final Results of Expedited Changed Circumstances Review [FR Doc. 2013–26742 Filed 11–6–13; 8:45 am] The Department continues to find that changed circumstances exist (i.e., the Japanese end-user remains unable to take delivery due to ongoing improvements and countermeasures following the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan), and that it is appropriate to extend the deadline for re-exportation of this sole entry of low-enriched uranium. The Department determines that the deadline for re-exportation of this sole entry is November 1, 2015, and that this will be the final extension. The Department further determines that, if the Japanese end-user is unable to take delivery by the November 1, 2015 deadline, AREVA, the U.S. importer as well as the French exporter, will be required to re-export this sole entry to France or pay antidumping duties on the entry at the applicable rate. AREVA and the end-user will be required to submit amended certifications to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). The Department will release amended certifications to parties for comment before AREVA and the end-user are required to submit to such certifications to CBP. Instructions to CBP The Department will inform CBP that the deadline for re-exportation of the single entry at issue is extended to November 1, 2015. The Department will instruct CBP to collect amended certifications from AREVA and its enduser within 30 days of publication of these final results of changed circumstances review. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders This notice is the only reminder to parties subject to the administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under the APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3).

DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE NMFS, Southeast Region, in collaboration with the Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council (Council) intends to prepare a DEIS to describe and analyze management alternatives to be included in Amendment 28 to the Fishery Management Plan (FMP) for the Reef Fish Resources of the Gulf of Mexico (Amendment 28). These alternatives will consider measures to reallocate red snapper resources between the commercial and recreational sectors with the purpose of increasing the net benefits and the stability of the red snapper component of the reef fish fishery. The purpose of this NOI is to solicit public comments on the scope of issues to be addressed in the DEIS. DATES: Written comments on the scope of issues to be addressed in the DEIS must be received by NMFS by December 9, 2013. ADDRESSES: You may submit comments on Amendment 28 identified by ‘‘NOAA–NMFS–2013–0146’’ by any of the following methods: • Electronic submissions: Submit electronic comments via the Federal e-Rulemaking Portal: http:// www.regulations.gov.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Peter Hood, Southeast Regional Office, telephone: (727) 824–5305; or email: peter.hood@noaa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Beginning in 2006, the Council expressed its intent to evaluate and possibly adjust the allocation of reef fish resources between the commercial and recreational sectors. Amendment 28 was initially developed by the Council to address changes in the allocation of grouper species, but the Council put this amendment on hold while they developed a fishery allocation policy consistent with NOAA’s Catch Share Policy. For both Amendment 28 and the Council’s catch share policy, public input was solicited at Council meetings. When the Council started discussing Amendment 28 again in October 2012, the Council added red snapper to the species to be considered. In February 2013, the Council determined this amendment should focus solely on red snapper allocation to address shortened recreational season lengths and recreational quota overages. The Council decided the purpose of Amendment 28 is to consider changes to the commercial and recreational red snapper allocations to increase the net benefits from red snapper fishing and increase the stability of the red snapper component of the reef fish fishery, particularly for the recreational sector that has experienced progressively shorter seasons. The Council also recognized that the resulting reallocation among the sectors must distribute benefits expected from red snapper resources in a fair and equitable manner. The need for the proposed action, as stated by the Council, is to prevent overfishing while achieving the optimum yield, particularly with respect to food production and recreational opportunities, while rebuilding the red snapper stock. After considering the economic analyses conducted by NMFS, the loss of fishing opportunities by the recreational sector due to shorter fishing seasons, and public comments provided at Council meetings, the Council concluded that increasing the allocation E:\FR\FM\07NON1.SGM 07NON1
