We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final results of this review. Cash Deposit Requirements The following deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for all shipments of nails from the UAE entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication as provided by section 751(a)(2) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rates for ODS will be the rates established in the final results of this administrative review; (2) for merchandise exported by manufacturers or exporters not covered in this review but covered in a prior segment of the proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original investigation but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recent period for the manufacturer of the merchandise; (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 4.30 percent, the all-others rate established in the Order.9 These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Importers This notice serves as a preliminary 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 POR. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and increase the subsequent assessment of the antidumping duties by the amount of the antidumping duties reimburses. The preliminary results of review are issued and published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act. nlaroche on DSK30NT082PROD with NOTICES Dated: May 16, 2017. Ronald K.

Because wind towers that are produced and exported by CS Wind Group were excluded from the antidumping duty order on wind towers from Vietnam effective March 26, 2017, the Department should only have initiated the administrative review on wind towers produced in Vietnam with respect to the CS Wind Group where CS Wind Group was (1) the producer but not the exporter, or (2) the exporter but not the producer. To correct this error in the Initiation Notice, the Department is now issuing this notice of amended initiation of the 2016–2017 antidumping duty administrative review of wind towers from Vietnam with respect to the CS Wind Group. The Department is initiating an administrative review only on entries where CS Wind Group was (1) the producer but not the exporter, or (2) the exporter but not the producer of subject merchandise. The initiation with respect to Vina Halla Heavy Industries Ltd. and UBI Tower Sole Member Company Ltd., remains unchanged. Deadline for Withdrawal of Request for Administrative Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), a party that has requested a review may withdraw that request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. The Initiation Notice was published on April 10, 2017.

ACTION: Notice of availability and request for comment. AGENCY: We, NMFS, are proposing to revise the Recovery Plan Preparation and Implementation Priorities and Recovery Plans contained in the 1990 Listing and Recovery Priority Guidelines. We propose to revise the guidelines to better prioritize limited agency resources to advance the recovery of threatened and endangered species guided by the immediacy of the species’ overall extinction risk, extent of information regarding major threats, and certainty that management or protective actions can be implemented successfully. We are not proposing changes to the Listing, Reclassification, and Delisting Priorities contained in the 1990 Listing and Recovery Priority Guidelines. We have found those guidelines to be sufficient in prioritizing listing actions and thus do not warrant a revision at this time. DATES: Comments on the proposed revision must be received by close of business on June 30, 2017. ADDRESSES: You may submit comments on this document, identified by NOAA– NMFS–2017–0020 by either of the following methods: • Electronic Submissions: Submit all electronic public comments via the SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Federal e-Rulemaking Portal.

Instructions: You must submit comments by one of the above methods to ensure that we receive, document, and consider them. Comments sent by any other method, to any other address or individual, or received after the end of the comment period, may not be considered. All comments received are a part of the public record and will generally be posted for public viewing on http://www.regulations.gov without change. All personal identifying information (e.g., name, address, etc.), confidential business information, or otherwise sensitive information submitted voluntarily by the sender will be publicly accessible. We will accept anonymous comments (enter ‘‘N/A’’ in the required fields if you wish to remain anonymous). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Section 4(f) of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) (16 U.S.C. 1533(f)) requires the Secretary to develop recovery plans for all species listed pursuant to the ESA, unless he/she finds that such a plan will not promote the recovery of the species. Section 4(h) requires the Secretary to establish a system for developing and implementing, on a priority basis, recovery plans under Section 4(f). We finalized guidance for prioritizing recovery plan development and implementation on June 15, 1990 (55 FR 24296). However, through our application of the Recovery Plan Preparation and Implementation Priorities and Recovery Plans (see parts ‘B’ and ‘C’ June 15, 1990 55 FR 24296), we have determined that the guidelines contain vague definitions and lack sufficient detail regarding factors that should be considered when evaluating threats and recovery potential. For these reasons, we propose revisions to the Recovery Plan Preparation and Implementation Priorities and Recovery Plan parts of the 1990 Listing and Recovery Priority Guidelines. The Listing, Reclassification, and Delisting Priorities can be found in the original Federal Register notice (see part ‘A’ June 15, 1990 55 FR 24296). The Listing, Reclassification, and Delisting Priorities remain unchanged and will be repeated in the final notice revising E:\FR\FM\31MYN1.SGM 31MYN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    In the amended final determination and antidumping duty order of 
this underlying investigation, the Department of Commerce (the 
Department) determined that CS Wind Vietnam Co., Ltd., and CS Wind 
Corporation are a single entity: The CS Wind Group.\1\ On March 16, 
2017, the United States Court of International Trade (CIT) issued its 
final judgment, sustaining the Department's final results of 
redetermination concerning the less-than-fair value investigation of 
utility scale wind towers (wind towers) from the Socialist Republic of 
Vietnam (Vietnam).\2\ On March 29, 2017, pursuant to that Court 
decision, effective March 26, 2017, the Department excluded from the 
antidumping duty order wind towers that are produced and exported by 
The CS Wind Group.\3\

Amendment to the Initiation

    On April 10, 2017, the Department published a notice of initiation 
of an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on wind 
towers from Vietnam for the period February 1, 2016, through January 
31, 2017.\4\ In the Initiation Notice, the Department inadvertently 
initiated an administrative review on all entries of merchandise 
exported by CS Wind Group. Because wind towers that are produced and 
exported by CS Wind Group were excluded from the antidumping duty order 
on wind towers from Vietnam effective March 26, 2017, the Department 
should only have initiated the administrative review on wind towers 
produced in Vietnam with respect to the CS Wind Group where CS Wind 
Group was (1) the producer but not the exporter, or (2) the exporter 
but not the producer. To correct this error in the Initiation Notice, 
the Department is now issuing this notice of amended initiation of the 
2016-2017 antidumping duty administrative review of wind towers from 
Vietnam with respect to the CS Wind Group. The Department is initiating 
an administrative review only on entries where CS Wind Group was (1) 
the producer but not the exporter, or (2) the exporter but not the 
producer of subject merchandise. The initiation with respect to Vina 
Halla Heavy Industries Ltd. and UBI Tower Sole Member Company Ltd., 
remains unchanged.
