SUMMARY: On October 5, 2015, the United States Court of International Trade (‘‘CIT’’) issued its final judgment in Jiangsu Jiasheng Photovoltaic Technology Co., Ltd. v. United States Consol. Court No. 13–000121 sustaining the Department of Commerce’s (‘‘the Department’’) final results of remand redetermination.2 Consistent with the decision of the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (‘‘CAFC’’) in Timken Co. v. United States, 893 F.2d 337 (Fed. Cir. 1990) (‘‘Timken’’), as clarified by Diamond Sawblades Mfrs. Coalition v. United States, 626 F.3d 1374 (Fed. Cir. 2010) (‘‘Diamond Sawblades’’), the Department is notifying the public that the final judgment in this case is not in harmony with the Department’s Final Determination and Amended Final Determination in the antidumping duty investigation of crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells, whether or not assembled into modules (‘‘solar cells’’), from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’),3 and is amending its determination with respect to granting separate rates to three specific respondents: Tianwei New Energy (Chengdu) PV Module Co., Ltd.

DATES: Effective Date: October 15, 2015. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jeff Pedersen, AD/CVD Operations, Office IV, Enforcement and Compliance— International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC, 20230; telephone (202) 482–2769. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Subsequent to the publication of the Amended Final Determination, SolarWorld Americas, Inc. filed a complaint with the CIT challenging, in part, the Department’s determination that certain separate-rate applicants were eligible for a separate rate. On June 6, 2014, the United States requested a voluntary remand to reconsider and reevaluate its determination to grant a separate rate to four specific respondents: Tianwei New Energy, Dongfang Electric, Sumec Hardware, and Ningbo ETDZ Holdings Ltd. (‘‘Ningbo ETDZ’’). On November 20, 2014, the CIT granted the Department’s request for a voluntary remand. On April 20, 2015, the Department issued its Remand Results, in which the Department determined that Tianwei New Energy, Dongfang Electric, and Sumec Hardware did not meet the criteria for a separate rate, but that Ningbo ETDZ did meet the criteria for a separate rate. On October 5, 2015, the Court issued its decision in Jiangsu II sustaining the Department’s Remand Results.4 requirements of Timken. Accordingly, the Department will continue the suspension of liquidation of the subject merchandise pending the expiration of the period of appeal, or if appealed, pending a final and conclusive court decision. Amended Final Determination Because there is now a final court decision with respect to this case, the Department is amending its Investigation Final Determination with respect to granting separate rates to Tianwei New Energy, Dongfang Electric, and Sumec Hardware. We have found that Tianwei New Energy, Dongfang Electric, and Sumec Hardware do not meet the criteria for a separate rate. Accordingly, these companies are part of the PRC-wide entity. Additionally, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect cash deposits from Tianwei New Energy, Dongfang Electric, and Sumec Hardware at the cash deposit rate applicable to the PRC-wide entity, effective October 15, 2015. The current cash deposit rate applicable to the PRCwide entity is 238.95 percent.5 This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 516A(e)(1), 735(d), and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: November 17, 2015. Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance. [FR Doc. 2015–29804 Filed 11–20–15; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 3510–DS–P DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Timken Notice RIN 0648–XE320 In its decision 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 CIT’s October 5, 2015, judgment sustaining the Department’s Remand Results to not grant separate rates to Tianwei New Energy, Dongfang Electric, and Sumec Hardware, constitutes a final decision of that court that is not in harmony with the Department’s Investigation Final Determination.

ACTION: Notice; intent to prepare an environmental impact statement and initiate scoping process; request for comments. AGENCY: The New England Fishery Management Council announces its intention to prepare, in cooperation with NMFS, an environmental impact statement in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act. An environmental impact statement may be necessary to provide analytical support for Amendment 22 to the Northeast Multispecies Fishery Management Plan, which would set criteria for a limited entry program for the small-mesh multispecies (whiting) fishery. This notice is to alert the interested public of the scoping process and potential development of a draft environmental impact statement and to outline opportunity for public participation in that process. DATES: Written and electronic scoping comments must be received on or before 5 p.m., local time, January 7, 2016. ADDRESSES: Written scoping comments on Amendment 22 may be sent by any of the following methods: • Email to the following address: comments@nefmc.org; • Mail to Thomas A. Nies, Executive Director, New England Fishery Management Council, 50 Water Street, Mill 2, Newburyport, MA 01950; or SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 72951 • Fax to (978) 465–3116. Requests for copies of the Amendment 22 scoping document and other information should be directed to Thomas A. Nies, Executive Director, New England Fishery Management Council, 50 Water Street, Mill 2, Newburyport, MA 01950, telephone (978) 465–0492. The scoping document is accessible electronically via the Internet at http://www.nefmc.org. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Thomas A. Nies, Executive Director, New England Fishery Management Council, (978) 465–0492. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The New England Fishery Management Council, working through its public participatory committee and meeting processes, anticipates the development of an amendment that may be analyzed through an environmental impact statement (EIS), dependent on addressing applicable criteria in the Council on Environmental Quality regulations and guidance for implementing the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). Amendment 22 to the Northeast Multispecies Fishery Management Plan (FMP) is anticipated to consider criteria that would restrict access to the directed whiting fishery based on past participation by vessels in the fishery and possibly other factors through the establishment of a limited entry program. Amendment 22 would also determine limits and fishery regulations that would apply to qualifying and nonqualifying vessels. The small-mesh multispecies fishery is managed through a set of exemptions from the requirements of the ‘‘largemesh’’ multispecies fishery. The current small-mesh exemptions under the FMP were first established in Amendment 5 in 1994. Amendment 5 prevented fishing with mesh smaller than the established minimum size in Gulf of Maine/Georges Bank Regulated Mesh Areas, unless exempted fisheries could be established that reduce the bycatch of regulated multispecies to less than 5 percent of the total weight of fish on board. Since that time, experimental and exempted fisheries for small-mesh multispecies in this area have evolved through cooperative experimentation, gear research, and gear technologies that significantly reduce bycatch of nontarget species, especially regulated multispecies. A number of amendments and framework adjustments revised management of the small-mesh fishery, including the relationships between E:\FR\FM\23NON1.SGM 23NON1
