Download as PDF tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 77418 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 246 / Monday, December 23, 2013 / Notices alternatives and any other action alternatives identified that may be reasonable and practicable: (1) Creation of a multi-purpose reservoir; (2) a combination of independent purpose alternatives to meet the overall project purposes and needs; and (3) the noaction alternative. The SEIS will identify the National Economic Development (NED) alternative, which is the alternative with the greatest net economic benefit consistent with protecting the Nation’s environment and document the estimated direct, indirect and cumulative impacts of the proposed action and alternatives on the environment. 4. Scoping: In developing the LOCWP, numerous scoping meetings were held to gather public input and keep the community informed on the status of project planning activities. Several community surveys and interviews were conducted to gather information, and periodic news articles were published to update local citizens. The Caldwell County Lake Project Steering Committee was formed to further insure public input into the planning process. NEPA procedures do not require additional public scoping meetings for the development of a SEIS and none are planned at this time. Comments received from Federal, State or local agencies, Native American Tribes, nongovernmental organizations, and interested citizens will be used to assist in the development of the Draft and Final SEIS (See ADDRESSES: above to submit comments). 5. Public Involvement: The NRCS invites full public participation to promote open communication and better decision-making. All persons and organizations with an interest in the LOCWP are urged to comment. Public comments are welcomed and opportunities for public participation include submitting comments to the NRCS: (1) During the development of the Draft SEIS, (2) during the review and comment period upon publishing the Draft SEIS; and (3) for 30 days after publication of the Final SEIS. Distribution of the comments received will be included in the Administrative Record without change and may include any personal information provided, unless the commenter indicates that the comment includes information claimed to be confidential business information. 6. Other Environmental Review and Coordination Requirements: The Corps will be a cooperating agency in the preparation of the SEIS. The NRCS as the lead federal agency will continue to coordinate with other agencies and entities throughout the NEPA process including: Caldwell County VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:12 Dec 20, 2013 Jkt 232001 Commission, Missouri Department of Natural Resources, Missouri Department of Conservation, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and USEPA. The Draft SEIS will address project compliance with applicable laws and regulations, including NEPA, CWA, Endangered Species Act, and the National Historic Preservation Act. 7. Permits or Licenses Required: The proposed federal action would require a CWA Section 404 permit from the Corps. The project would also require certification by the State of Missouri, Department of Natural Resources, under Section 401 of the CWA, that the project would not violate state water quality standards. A land disturbance permit issued by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources under Section 402 of the CWA (National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Permit) would be required. Construction and Safety Permits issued by the Missouri Dam and Reservoir Safety Program would also be required. 8. Availability of Draft SEIS: The draft SEIS is estimated to be complete and available for public review in 2014. (This activity is listed in the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance under No. 10.904, Watershed Protection and Flood Prevention, and is subject to the provisions of Executive Order 12372, which requires intergovernmental consultation with State and local officials.)

SUMMARY: On June 3, 2013, the Department of Commerce (‘‘the Department’’) published a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain activated carbon from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’) based on multiple timely requests for an administrative review. The review covers 185 companies. Based on a withdrawal of the requests for review of certain companies from Calgon Carbon Corporation and Cabot Norit Americas Inc. (‘‘Petitioners’’), we are now rescinding this administrative review with respect to four companies. DATES: Effective December 23, 2013.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: Background In April 2013, the Department received multiple timely requests to conduct an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain activated carbon from the PRC (‘‘the Order’’).1 Based upon these requests, on 1 See Notice of Antidumping Duty Order: Certain Activated Carbon From the People’s Republic of China, 72 FR 20988 (April 27, 2007) (‘‘Order’’). VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:12 Dec 20, 2013 Jkt 232001 June 3, 2013, the Department published a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the Order covering the period April 1, 2012, to March 31, 2013.2 The Department initiated the administrative review with respect to 185 companies.3 On August 28, 2013, Petitioners withdrew their request for an administrative review on Shanxi Industry Technology Trading Co., Ltd., (‘‘Shanxi ITT’’), Shanxi Xuanzhong Chemical Industry Co., Ltd. (‘‘Xuanzhong’’), Tianjin Maijin Industries Co., Ltd. (‘‘Tianjin’’) and Xi’an Shuntong International Trade & Industrials Co., Ltd. (‘‘Xi’an’’).4 Petitioners were the only party to request a review of these companies. Petitioners also withdrew their review requests for an additional 165 companies, and no other party requested a review of those companies. However, those companies do not have a separate rate from a prior segment of this proceeding and are part of the PRCwide entity which could come under review in this segment of the proceeding. We intend to address the disposition of these companies in the preliminary results of this review.5 Partial Rescission Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party who requested the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of publication of notice of initiation of the requested review. Petitioners’ requests for review of Shanxi ITT, Xuanzhong, Tianjin and Xi’an were withdrawn within the 90-day period. Because Petitioners’ requests for review were timely withdrawn and because no other party requested a review of Shanxi ITT, Xuanzhong, Tianjin and Xi’an, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), we are partially rescinding this review with respect to Shanxi ITT, Xuanzhong, Tianjin and Xi’an. 2 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Requests for Revocation in Part, 78 FR 33052, 33054 (June 3, 2013) (‘‘Initiation Notice’’). 3 See id. 4 See Letter to the Department from Petitioners, Re: Certain Activated Carbon From the People’s Republic of China: Petitioners’ Withdrawal of Certain Requests for Administrative Review, dated August 28, 2013. Petitioners also withdrew their request for review of Calgon Carbon (Tianjin) Co., Ltd. (‘‘Calgon’’). However, Albemarle Corporation also requested an administrative review of Calgon in the current segment. See Letter from Albemarle Corporation, dated April 30, 2013. 5 See Wooden Bedroom Furniture From the People’s Republic of China: Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 78 FR 60844 (October 2, 2013). PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 77419 Assessment Rates The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries.6 Because Shanxi ITT, Xuanzhong, Tianjin and Xi’an have a separate rate from a prior segment of this proceeding, antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(2). The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of this notice. Notification to Importers This notice serves as a final reminder to importers for whom this review is being rescinded, as of the publication date of this notice, 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. Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective orders (‘‘APO’’) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305, which continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return or destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a violation which is subject to sanction. This notice is issued and published in accordance with section 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4). Dated: December 17, 2013. Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations.
