Burden Hours: 1,438. Needs and Uses: This request is for extension of a currently approved information collection. This information collection describes special permits issued to participants in the Pacific halibut subsistence fishery in waters off the coast of Alaska and any appeals resulting from denials. The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) designed the permits to work in conjunction with other halibut harvest assessment measures. Subsistence fishing for halibut has occurred for many years among the Alaska Native people and non-Native people. Special permits are initiated in response to the concerns of Native and community groups regarding increased restrictions in International Pacific Halibut Commission Area 2C and include Community Harvest Permits, Ceremonial Permits, and Educational Permits. A Community Harvest Permit allows the community or Alaska Native tribe to appoint one or more individuals from its respective community or tribe to harvest subsistence halibut from a single vessel under reduced gear and harvest restrictions. Ceremonial and Educational Permits are available exclusively to Alaska Native tribes. Eligible Alaska Native tribes may appoint only one Ceremonial Permit Coordinator per tribe for Ceremonial Permits or one authorized Instructor per tribe for Educational Permits. Except for enrolled students fishing under a valid Educational Permit, PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 special permits require persons fishing under them to also possess a Subsistence Halibut Registration Certificate (SHARC) (see OMB No. 0648–0460) which identifies those persons who are currently eligible for subsistence halibut fishing.

Period of Review

    The POR covered by this review is January 1, 2014, through December 
31, 2014.

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise subject to the order is certain lined paper

Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) item numbers: 
4811.90.9035, 4811.90.9080, 4820.30.0040, 4810.22.5044, 4811.90.9050,

``ministerial error'' as an error ``in addition, subtraction, or other 
arithmetic function, clerical error resulting from inaccurate copying,

which the Secretary considers ministerial.'' The Department finds that 
the purported errors alleged by the petitioner constitute ministerial 
errors within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.224(f).\5\ Specifically, we 
committed certain ministerial errors with regard to the ``0.5 Percent 
Test,'' as described under 19 CFR 351.524(b)(2), and the benefit 
calculation performed in connection with import duty exemptions that 
Goldenpalm received under the Export Promotion of Capital Goods Scheme.

Ministerial Error Allegations.
