Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 244 / Monday, December 21, 2015 / Notices mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES As a result of its reviews, pursuant to sections 751(c) and 752 of the Act, the Department determined that revocation of the antidumping duty order on CTL plate from the PRC and termination of the Agreements on CTL plate from Russia and Ukraine would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of dumping and notified the ITC of the magnitude of the margins likely to prevail, should the order and the Agreements be revoked or terminated, respectively. See Certain Cut-to-Length Carbon Steel Plate From the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of the Expedited Third Sunset Review of the Antidumping Duty Order, 80 FR 6051 (February 4, 2015), Certain Cut-to-Length Carbon Steel Plate from the Russian Federation and Ukraine; Final Results of the Expedited Third Sunset Reviews of the Suspension Agreements, 80 FR 6052 (February 4, 2015). On December 9, 2015, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act, the ITC determined that revocation of the antidumping duty order on CTL plate from the PRC and termination of the Agreements on CTL plate from Russia and Ukraine would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time. See Cut-to-Length Carbon Steel Plate From China, Russia, and Ukraine, 80 FR 76575 (December 9, 2015). Therefore, pursuant to section 351.218(f)(4) of the Department’s regulations, the Department is publishing this notice of the continuation of the antidumping duty order on CTL plate from the PRC and continuation of the Agreements on CTL plate from Russia and Ukraine. Scope The products covered under the antidumping duty order and the Agreements are hot-rolled iron and nonalloy steel universal mill plates (i.e., flat-rolled products rolled on four faces or in a closed box pass, of a width exceeding 150 mm but not exceeding 1250 mm and of a thickness of not less than 4 mm, not in coils and without patterns in relief), of rectangular shape, neither clad, plated nor coated with metal, whether or not painted, varnished, or coated with plastics or other nonmetallic substances; and certain iron and non-alloy steel flatrolled products not in coils, of rectangular shape, hot-rolled, neither clad, plated, nor coated with metal, whether or not painted, varnished, or coated with plastics or other nonmetallic substances, 4.75 mm or more in thickness and of a width which exceeds 150 mm and measures at least VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:38 Dec 18, 2015 Jkt 238001 twice the thickness. Included as subject merchandise in this order and these Agreements are flat-rolled products of nonrectangular cross- section where such cross-section is achieved subsequent to the rolling process (i.e., products which have been ‘‘worked after rolling’’)—for example, products which have been bevelled or rounded at the edges. This merchandise is currently classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) under item numbers 7208.40.3030, 7208.40.3060, 7208.51.0030, 7208.51.0045, 7208.51.0060, 7208.52.0000, 7208.53.0000, 7208.90.0000, 7210.70.3000, 7210.90.9000, 7211.13.0000, 7211.14.0030, 7211.14.0045, 7211.90.0000, 7212.40.1000, 7212.40.5000, 7212.50.0000. Excluded from the subject merchandise within the scope of this order and these Agreements is grade X– 70 plate. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, our written description of the scope of the order and the Agreements is dispositive. Continuation As a result of the respective determinations by the Department and the ITC that revocation of the antidumping duty order on CTL plate from the PRC and termination of the Agreements on CTL plate from Russia and Ukraine would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping and material injury to an industry in the United States, pursuant to section 751(d)(2) of the Act, the Department hereby gives notice of the continuation of the antidumping duty order on CTL plate from the PRC and the continuation of the Agreements on CTL plate from Russia and Ukraine. The effective dates of continuation will be the date of publication in the Federal Register of this Continuation Notice. Pursuant to sections 751(c)(2) and 751(c)(6) of the Act, the Department intends to initiate the next five-year sunset reviews of the antidumping duty order on CTL plate from the PRC and the Agreements on CTL plate from Russia and Ukraine not later than November 2019. These five-year (sunset) reviews and notice are in accordance with section 751(c) of the Act and published pursuant to section 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(f)(4). Dated: December 15, 2015.

Citizen science is a growing field in which trained members of the public collaborate and engage with scientists in the inquiry and discovery of new knowledge. Public participation in scientific research advances science, research, and policy and fosters an informed and engaged citizenship. The Council recognizes the desire of constituents to get involved and the need to have a well-designed program and accompanying sampling protocols to ensure that information collected through such efforts is useful. To meet this growing need, the Council intends to develop a comprehensive Citizen Science Program. The first step in this process is a workshop where interested citizens, fisheries managers and scientists, and citizen science practitioners will gather to develop recommendations for designing such a program. The product of this workshop will be a report to the Council addressing the workshop goals. The Council provided the following goals for the workshop: 1. Document and evaluate existing citizen science and cooperative research experiences; 2. Identify existing funding opportunities; 3. Develop objectives for the South Atlantic Citizen Science Program; 4. Develop a framework for achieving program objectives, considering: (a) Research and monitoring activities appropriate for citizen science; (b) Funded and unfunded opportunities and avenues to support citizen science; (c) The full range of data needs; (d) Potential web-based platforms; (e) Outreach and education needs, short and long term; and (f) Governance, including ongoing staff support, management, and oversight SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 5. Develop a prioritized list of citizen science project candidates, and identify 2–5 high priority projects that could be implemented within 1 year of the workshop. Discussion topics for consideration at this workshop: 1. Introduction to citizen science. 2. Selected citizen science case studies. 3. Identifying potential projects for the South Atlantic. 4. Design requirements and attributes of successful projects. 5. Recommendations addressing workshop goals. Special Accommodations This meeting is accessible to people with disabilities.
