SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On February 2, 2015, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of ‘‘Opportunity to Request Administrative Review’’ of the antidumping duty order on LRW from Mexico for the POR.1 On February 20, 2015, in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.213(b), Electrolux Home Products Corp., N.V. and Electrolux Home Products de Mexico, S.A. de C.V. (collectively, Electrolux) requested a review of Electrolux’s sales during the POR.2 On February 26, 2015, Whirlpool Corporation, the petitioner, requested that the Department conduct an administrative review of the sales of Samsung Electronics Mexico S.A. de C.V (Samsung) and Electrolux during the POR.3 The Department did not receive a request from Samsung. On April 3, 2015, the Department published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on LRW from Mexico with respect to the above-named companies.4 On May 29, 2015, the petitioner timely withdrew its request for a review of Samsung.5 tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Partial Rescission of Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Department will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if the parties that requested a review withdraw the request within 90 days of the date of publication of notice of initiation of the requested review. The petitioner’s withdrawal request was filed before the 90-day deadline and Samsung did not request a review of its sales during the POR. Therefore, in 1 See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 80 FR 5509 (February 2, 2015). 2 See February 20, 2015, letter from Electrolux regarding request for administrative review. 3 See February 26, 2015, letter from the petitioner regarding request for administrative review. 4 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 80 FR 18202 (April 3, 2015). 5 See May 29, 2015, letter from the petitioner regarding withdrawal of request for review.

The instant review will continue with respect to Electrolux. Assessment The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For Samsung, the company for which this review is rescinded, antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from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)(1)(i). The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 41 days after the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. Notification to Importers This notice serves as the only reminder to importers 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 may result in the presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written notification of return/ destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation. This notice is published in accordance with section 751 of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jeff Abrams, Santa Rosa, CA (ph.: 707–575– 6080), Fax: 707–578–3435, email: Jeff.Abrams@noaa.gov). Permit application instructions are available from the address above, or online at https://apps.nmfs.noaa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Species Covered in This Notice The following listed species are covered in this notice: Endangered black abalone (Haliotis cracherodii). Authority Scientific research and enhancement permits are issued in accordance with section 10(a)(1)(A) of the ESA (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.) and regulations governing listed fish and wildlife permits (50 CFR parts 222–227). NMFS issues permits based on findings that such permits: (1) Are applied for in good faith; (2) if granted and exercised, would not operate to the disadvantage of the listed species that are the subject of the permit; and (3) are consistent with the purposes and policy of section 2 of the ESA. The authority to take listed species is subject to conditions set forth in the permits. Anyone requesting a hearing on an application listed in this notice should set out the specific reasons why a hearing on that application would be appropriate (see ADDRESSES). Such hearings are held at the discretion of the Assistant Administrator for Fisheries, NMFS. Applications Received Permit 18761 Dr. Peter Raimondi, professor and chair of the University of California, Santa Cruz, Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, has requested a five year research permit to monitor and research the status and trends of endangered black abalone at sites PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 throughout California for a period of five years. Monitoring would consist primarily of non-lethal, non-capture take to measure, mark, and count abalone. At a few experimental sites, habitat restoration efforts would be completed to restore crevice communities to their pre-abalone decline state, and recruitment modules would be used to better estimate recruitment levels. Comparisons would be made between abalone counts in ‘‘restored’’ crevices versus control crevices with and without recruitment modules to assess whether habitat restoration and recruitment module presence enhance recovery efforts. Some juvenile black abalone would be transported in recruitment modules from locations that are relatively free of withering syndrome in the north (Monterey County), to a withering syndrome-impacted mainland site further south (Santa Barbara County). Because the field biologists in this project would be likely to encounter dead or moribund black abalone, researchers would be permitted to collect dead or obviously dying individuals to be used for pathology and histology samples. These samples would be important in early identification of disease or toxin outbreaks. The information resulting from the research outlined above would be used to follow recovery in wild abalone, track disease spread and population decline, and better understand habitat preferences that may aid in facilitating recovery. Permit 19571 The NMFS Southwest Fisheries Science Center (SWFSC), La Jolla, California has requested a five year research and enhancement permit for the captive maintenance, breeding, lab experiments, epipodial tissue sampling, observation, and transport of endangered black abalone. The main purpose of this research would be to develop successful techniques for consistent production of high quality juvenile black abalone to support future outplanting efforts. Research would examine: 1) Spawning conditioning related to various diet and temperature regimes, 2) cues for spawning including thermal shock and hydrogen peroxide treatments, 3) veliger settlement, 4) and growth and survival. Eight of the black abalone proposed to be used for this research were previously transferred from the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center Pacific Abalone Farm to the SWFSC Aquarium Culture Facility in La Jolla, California. These pre-listed abalone have been in captivity since before black abalone were listed as E:\FR\FM\14OCN1.SGM 14OCN1
