Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 98 / Thursday, May 21, 2015 / Notices complaints with the Court and challenged certain aspects of the Final Results. In Navneet I, the Court remanded the Department’s Final Results with respect to the Department’s calculation of the 11.01 percent nonselected rate assigned to 51 non-selected respondents. The Department based the non-selected rate on the simple average of the two mandatory respondents’ zero rates and two (out of four) of the 22.02 percent adverse facts available (AFA) rates assigned to the uncooperative respondents, which failed to respond to the Department’s quantity and value questionnaire.10 On July 22, 2014, the Court remanded the Department’s Final Results and instructed the Department to reconsider the following two issues: (1) That the rate assigned to the non-selected companies should be supported by ‘‘substantial evidence,’’ and (2) that the rate reflects the ‘‘economic reality’’ and ‘‘pricing behavior’’ of the non-selected respondents.11 On December 4, 2014, the Department filed the Final Remand Results with the Court, in which it continued to find evidence of dumping during the POR, drew an inference that the behavior of uncooperative respondents reflects rational choice, and, thus, found it reasonable to assign an above de minimis margin to the non-selected respondents.12 In the Final Remand Results, the Department explained that this approach complied with the Court’s holding in Navneet I that the nonselected margin be tied to the relevant factual circumstances of the administrative review and the economic reality of the non-selected respondents.13 On May 4, 2015, the Court entered judgment sustaining the Final Remand Results.14 tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Timken Notice In Timken, 893 F.2d at 341, as clarified by Diamond Sawblades, the CAFC held that, pursuant to section 516A(e) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), the Department must publish a notice of a court decision that is not ‘‘in harmony’’ with a Department determination and must suspend liquidation of entries pending a ‘‘conclusive’’ court decision. The Court’s judgment in Navneet II sustaining the Final Remand Results constitutes a final decision of the Court June 20, 2013, Riddhi Enterprises, Ltd. and SAB International were dismissed from the litigation. 10 See Navneet I at 19, referencing the Final Decision Memorandum at Comment 5. 11 See Navneet I at 15. 12 See Final Remand Results 14–15. 13 Id. 14 See Navneet II at 11.

Notification to Interested Parties Amended Final Results Dated: May 14, 2015. Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance. Because there is now a final court decision, the Department is amending the Final Results with respect to Navneet and the other non-selected, cooperative exporters that are plaintiffs in this case. The revised weightedaverage dumping margins for these exporters during the period September 1, 2010, through August 31, 2011, are as follows: WEIGHTED-AVERAGE DUMPING MARGIN FOR PLAINTIFF EXPORTERS Producer/exporter Lodha Offset Limited .................. Magic International Pvt Ltd ......... Marisa International .................... Navneet Education Ltd 15 ........... Pioneer Stationery Pvt. Ltd ........ SGM Paper Products ................. Super Impex ............................... Weightedaverage dumping margin (percent) Cash Deposit Requirements Since the Final Results, the Department has established a new cash deposit rate for Navneet Education Ltd. and Super Impex.16 Therefore, the cash deposit rate for these two companies does not need to be updated as a result of these amended final results The cash deposit rate will be the rate listed above for the remaining five companies listed above and subject to this remand. 15 Navneet Education Ltd. is a successor in interest to Navneet Publications (India) Ltd.

Virginia and Maryland have instituted regulations for state waters, but catches in any Federal waters north of North Carolina may be landed from Delaware north without restriction. Blueline tilefish are likely susceptible to overfishing due to their life history (relatively long-lived, sedentary, slow growing, and late maturing) so the MAFMC is considering developing conservation and management measures. These measures could be considered via an amendment to the MAFMC’s Golden Tilefish Fishery Management Plan (FMP), or a new FMP for blueline tilefish and/or other deep-water fish such as sand tilefish, snowy grouper, and blackbellied rosefish. Management measures could include a definition of the management unit, as well as acceptable biological catches, annual catch limits, essential fish habitat, trip limits and/or minimum fish sizes for the commercial or recreational fisheries, etc. For waters north of North Carolina, in response to recent catch increases, the MAFMC has already requested NMFS take emergency action to implement a 300-lb (136-kg) (whole weight) commercial trip limit and a seven-fish per person recreational possession limit. This request was the result of a February 25, 2015, MAFMC meeting, the details of which may be found at: http:// www.mafmc.org/briefing/2015/february2014-blueline-tilefish-webinar-meeting. These emergency measures are intended to prevent depletion of blueline tilefish off the Mid-Atlantic on an interim basis (for a maximum of 366 days) while the Council develops long-term management measures through the normal Magnuson-Stevens Act process. The SAFMC has also requested that NMFS (via an emergency rule) extend management measures recently enacted in the Southeastern Region (March 30, 2015; 80 FR 16583) north to apply to all Federal waters off the U.S. East Coast. Because any emergency rule can only be in effect for a maximum of 366 days, the MAFMC is moving ahead with scoping for an amendment or new FMP to develop long-term management and conservation measures for blueline tilefish off the Mid-Atlantic. This is the first and best opportunity for members of the public to raise concerns related to the scope of issues that will be considered in the Council’s action. The MAFMC needs your input both to identify management issues and develop effective alternatives. Potential management measures could include a definition of the management unit, as well as acceptable biological catches, annual catch limits, essential fish PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 habitat, trip limits and/or minimum fish sizes for the commercial or recreational fisheries, and/or other measures that may be deemed appropriate. Your comments early in the FMP/amendment development process will help us address issues of public concern in a thorough and appropriate manner. Comment topics could include the scope of issues in the FMP or amendment, concerns and potential alternatives related to blueline tilefish management. Comments can be made during the scoping hearings as detailed above or in writing. After scoping, the MAFMC plans to develop a range of management alternatives to be considered and prepare a draft environmental impact statement (EIS) and/or other appropriate environmental analyses. A new FMP would require an EIS, while an amendment to the existing Golden Tilefish FMP may require an EIS or an Environmental Assessment. These analyses will consider the impacts of the management alternatives being considered, as required by National Environmental Policy Act. Following a review of any comments on the draft analyses, the MAFMC will then choose preferred management measures for submission with a Final EIS or Environmental Assessment to the Secretary of Commerce for review and consideration for approval. Approved management measures would be implemented through publication of proposed and final rules, which include additional opportunity for public comment.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The South Atlantic Fishery Management 
Council (SAFMC) manages blueline tilefish south of the Virginia/North 
Carolina border. There are currently (as of May 11, 2015) no management 
measures for blueline tilefish in Federal waters north of North 
Carolina. Virginia and Maryland have instituted regulations for state 
waters, but catches in any Federal waters north of North Carolina may 
be landed from Delaware north without restriction. Blueline tilefish 
are likely susceptible to overfishing due to their life history
