Management of and regulations for Pacific halibut in Alaska are developed on the international, Federal, and state levels by the International Pacific Halibut Commission (IPHC), the North Pacific Fishery Management Council (Council), National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), Alaska Region and the State of Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G). The IPHC and NMFS manage fishing for Pacific halibut through regulations established under authority of the Convention between the United States Halibut Fishery of the Northern Pacific Ocean and Bering Sea (Convention), the Northern Pacific Halibut Act of 1982, 16 U.S.C. 773c (Halibut Act), and Section 303(b) of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq.). Regulations that implement this collection-ofinformation are found at 50 CFR part 300.60 through 300.66 and at 50 CFR 679.5(l)(7). Annual catch quotas are determined by the IPHC, and Federal responsibility for halibut management extends to halibut stocks and fishing activity within State of Alaska waters. In order to manage halibut effectively, international and Federal managers need information on halibut fishing effort and harvest by all user groups, including the guided sport charter sector of the fishery. Federal regulations at 50 CFR 300.65 require charter vessel operators fishing in IPHC Areas 2C and 3A to comply with the ADF&G annual registration of sport fishing guides and businesses and ADF&G saltwater charter halibut logbook. NMFS and ADF&G coordinate closely in the development of this information collection for the monitoring and enforcement of the charter vessel catch limit of halibut. A Catch Sharing Program was developed in IPHC Regulatory Areas 2C and 3A for the guided sport and commercial fisheries which authorized commercial halibut quota share (QS) holders to transfer individual fishing quota (IFQ) as guided angler fish (GAF) E:\FR\FM\20OCN1.SGM 20OCN1

Certain Hot-Rolled Flat-Rolled Carbon-Quality Steel Products From 
the Russian Federation: Continuation of Antidumping Duty Order

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: As a result of the determinations by the Department of 
Commerce (the Department) and the U.S. International Trade Commission 
(USITC) that revocation of the antidumping duty order on certain hot-
rolled flat-rolled carbon-quality steel products (hot-rolled steel) 
from the Russian Federation (Russia) would likely lead to continuation 
or recurrence of dumping and material injury to an industry in the 
United States, the Department is publishing a notice of continuation of 
this antidumping duty order.

DATES: Effective date: October 20, 2016.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Dena Crossland, AD/CVD Operations,

(Russia Order).
    \2\ See Initiation of Five-Year (``Sunset'') Review, 81 FR 26209 
(May 2, 2016).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As a result of this sunset review, the Department determined that 
revocation of the Russia Order would likely lead to continuation or 
recurrence of dumping and, therefore, notified the USITC of the 
magnitude of the margins of dumping likely to prevail should the order 
be revoked.\3\

Continuation of the Order

    As a result of the determinations by the Department and the USITC 
that revocation of the Russia Order would be likely to 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 orders the continuation of the Russia Order.
    U.S. Customs and Border Protection will continue to collect cash 
deposits of estimated antidumping duties at the rates in effect at the 
time of entry for all imports of subject merchandise. The effective 
date of the continuation of this order will be the effective date 
listed

above. Pursuant to section 751(c)(2) of the Act, the Department intends 
to initiate the next sunset review of this order not later than 30 days 
prior to the fifth anniversary of the effective date of continuation.
    This five-year (sunset) review and this notice are in accordance 
with sections 751(c) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(f)(4).
