SUMMARY: On August 12, 2015, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on polyethylene terephthalate film, sheet and strip (PET film) from Brazil for the period November 1, 2013 through November 9, 2013.1 For the final results, we continue to find that respondent Terphane Ltda and Terphane, Inc. (collectively, Terphane) made no shipments of subject merchandise during the period of review (POR). We made no changes to the Preliminary Results. DATES: Effective Date: December 15, 2015. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Tyler Weinhold or Robert James, AD/ CVD Operations, Office VI, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–1121 and (202) 482–0649, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Background On August 12, 2015, the Department published the Preliminary Results in the Federal Register.2 In the Preliminary Results, the Department preliminarily determined that Terphane made no shipments during the POR. We invited parties to comment on the Preliminary Results. We received no comments. Scope of the Order The products covered by the order are all gauges of raw, pre-treated, or primed 1 See Polyethylene Terephthalate Film, Sheet and Strip from Brazil: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2013– 2014, 80 FR 48292 (August 12, 2015) (Preliminary Results). 2 Id. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:08 Dec 14, 2015 Jkt 238001 PET film, whether extruded or coextruded. Excluded are metallized films and other finished films that have had at least one of their surfaces modified by the application of a performanceenhancing resinous or inorganic layer more than 0.00001 inches thick. Also excluded is roller transport cleaning film which has at least one of its surfaces modified by application of 0.5 micrometers of SBR latex. Tracing and drafting film is also excluded. PET film is classifiable under subheading 3920.62.00.90 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). While HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, our written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. Determination of No Shipments As noted in the Preliminary Results, we received a no-shipment claim from Terphane, and we confirmed this claim with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). Because no party commented on our preliminary results, we continue to find that the record indicates that Terphane did not export subject merchandise to the United States during the POR and that it had no reviewable transactions during the POR. Assessment Pursuant to 19 CFR 356.8(a), the Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these final results of review. On May 6, 2003, the Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation.3 This clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR for which the reviewed company did not know its merchandise was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction. For any entries by Terphane, we will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties in accordance with the reseller policy. Cash Deposit Requirements As this order has been revoked in full, and the suspension of liquidation of entries of PET film from Brazil has been lifted, we do not intend to issue cash deposit instructions.4 3 See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003) (reseller policy). 4 See Polyethylene Terephthalate Film, Sheet, and Strip From Brazil, the People’s Republic of China and the United Arab Emirates: Continuation and Revocation of Antidumping Duty Orders, 80 FR 6689 (February 6, 2015). PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 77605 Notifications This notice also serves as a final 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 could result in the Department’s presumption that reimbursement of the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties. This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective orders (APOs) of their responsibility concerning the disposition 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 the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation. This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended. Dated: December 9, 2015.

ACTION: Notification of standard exvessel prices. asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: NMFS publishes standard exvessel prices for groundfish and halibut for the calculation of the observer fee under the North Pacific Groundfish and Halibut Observer Program (Observer SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:08 Dec 14, 2015 Jkt 238001 Program). This notice is intended to provide information to vessel owners, processors, registered buyers, and other participants about the standard exvessel prices that will be used to calculate the observer fee liability for landings of groundfish and halibut made in 2016. NMFS will send invoices to processors and registered buyers subject to the fee by January 15, 2017. Fees are due to NMFS on or before February 15, 2017. DATES: Effective January 1, 2016. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For general questions about the observer fee and standard ex-vessel prices, contact Sally Bibb at 907–586–7389. For questions about the fee billing process, contact Kristie Balovich at 907–586– 7419. Additional information about the Observer Program is available on NMFS Alaska Region’s Web site at http:// alaskafisheries.noaa.gov/ sustainablefisheries/observers/. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The Observer Program deploys NMFS-certified observers (observers) who collect information necessary for the conservation and management of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands (BSAI) and Gulf of Alaska (GOA) groundfish and halibut fisheries. Fishery managers use information collected by observers to monitor quotas, manage groundfish and prohibited species catch, and document and reduce fishery interactions with protected resources. Scientists use observer-collected information for stock assessments and marine ecosystem research. The Observer Program is divided into two observer coverage categories—the partial observer coverage category and the full observer coverage category. All groundfish and halibut vessels and processors are included in one of these two categories. The partial observer coverage category includes vessels and processors that are not required to have an observer at all times; the full observer coverage category includes vessels and processors required to have all of their fishing and processing operations off Alaska observed. Vessels and processors in the full coverage category arrange and pay for observer services from a permitted observer provider. Observer coverage for the partial coverage category is funded through a system of fees based on the ex-vessel value of groundfish and halibut. Landings Subject to Observer Coverage Fee The objective of the observer fee assessment is to levy a fee on all PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 landings accruing against a Federal total allowable catch (TAC) for groundfish or a commercial halibut quota made by vessels that are subject to Federal regulations and not included in the full coverage category. A fee is only assessed on landings of groundfish from vessels designated on a Federal Fisheries Permit or from vessels landing individual fishing quota (IFQ) or community development quota (CDQ) halibut or IFQ sablefish. Within the subset of vessels subject to the observer fee, only landings accruing against the Federal TAC are included in the fee assessment. A table with additional information about which landings are and are not subject to the observer fee is in NMFS regulations at § 679.55(c) and is on page 2 of an informational bulletin titled ‘‘Observer Fee Collection’’ on the NMFS Alaska Region Web site at https:// alaskafisheries.noaa.gov/ sustainablefisheries/observers/ observerfees.pdf. Fee Determination A fee equal to 1.25 percent of the exvessel value is assessed on the landings of groundfish and halibut subject to the fee. Ex-vessel value is determined by multiplying the standard price for groundfish by the round weight equivalent for each species, gear, and port combination, and the standard price for halibut by the headed and gutted weight equivalent. NMFS will assess each landing report submitted via eLandings and each manual landing entered into the IFQ landing database and determine if the landing is subject to the observer fee and, if it is, which groundfish in the landing are subject to the observer fee. All IFQ or CDQ halibut in a landing subject to the observer fee will be assessed as part of the fee liability. For any groundfish or halibut subject to the observer fee, NMFS will apply the appropriate standard ex-vessel prices for the species, gear type, and port, and calculate the observer fee liability associated with the landing. Processors and registered buyers access the landing-specific, observer fee liability information through NMFS Web Application (https:// alaskafisheries.noaa.gov/webapps/efish/ login) or eLandings (https:// elandings.alaska.gov/). For IFQ halibut, CDQ halibut, and IFQ sablefish, this information is available as soon as the IFQ report is submitted. For groundfish and sablefish that accrue against the fixed gear sablefish CDQ reserve, the observer fee liability information is generally available within 24 hours of receipt of the report. The time lag on the groundfish and sablefish CDQ fee information is necessary because NMFS E:\FR\FM\15DEN1.SGM 15DEN1
