Therefore, based on the Order, the POR for this NSR is December 1, 2014, through May 31, 2015. Initiation of New Shipper Reviews Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(d)(1), the Department finds that the request from Wah Yuen meets threshold requirements for the initiation of a new shipper review of shipments of cased pencils from the PRC produced and exported by Wah Yuen.11 The Department intends to issue the preliminary results of this new shipper review no later than 180 days from the date of initiation and the final results of the review no later than 90 days after the date the preliminary results are issued.12 It is the Department’s usual practice, in cases involving non-market economy countries, to require that a company seeking to establish eligibility for an antidumping duty rate separate from the country-wide rate provide evidence of de jure and de facto absence of government control over the 8 See Wah Yuen supplemental NSR request at Exhibit 5. 9 See Wah Yuen NSR request at Exhibit 4. 10 Id. at Exhibit 1and Wah Yuen supplemental NSR request at Exhibit 6. 11 See the memorandum to the file entitled ‘‘Cased Pencils from the People’s Republic of China: Initiation Checklist for Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review of Wah Yuen Stationery Co., Ltd.’’ dated concurrently with this notice. 12 See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(i).

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 the entry of the subject merchandise from Wah Yuen, in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(e).

SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00022 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 47471 The subject permit is requested under the authority of the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972, as amended (MMPA; 16 U.S.C. 1361 et seq.), the regulations governing the taking and importing of marine mammals (50 CFR part 216). The applicant requests a permit to take multiple cetacean species during research activities focused on cetacean behavior, sound production and responses to sound in U.S. waters of the North Atlantic and North Pacific Ocean and international waters near the Mediterranean Sea and the Bahamas. See tables in the permit application for annual numbers of takes by species, stock and activity. Researchers would take animals by harassment during close approaches with vessels for behavioral observations and photo-identification; attachment of suction-cup or implantable tags and marking with zinc oxide; biopsy sampling; and playbacks of natural and simulated sound. Playback takes involve conducting sound playback experiments where subjects whose responses are being measured will be exposed to specific sounds in a carefully controlled manner using a source level <197.4 dB re 1 microPa at 1 m. Incidental harassment of other species in the area may occur during playbacks and vessel surveys. Skin samples would be imported from foreign field sites to the United States for genetic analyses. The requested permit would be valid for five years from issuance. In compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42 U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), an initial determination has been made that the activity proposed is categorically excluded from the requirement to prepare an environmental assessment or environmental impact statement. Concurrent with the publication of this notice in the Federal Register, NMFS is forwarding copies of the application to the Marine Mammal Commission and its Committee of Scientific Advisors.
