The information which the Department examined was consistent with that provided by Doo Won in its request.8 In particular, the CBP data confirmed the price and quantity reported by Doo Won for the sale that forms the basis for this NSR request. Period of Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.214(c), an exporter or producer may request a NSR within one year of the date on which its subject merchandise was first entered. Moreover, 19 CFR 351.214(d)(1) states that if the request for the review is made during the six-month period ending with the end of the semiannual anniversary month, the Secretary will initiate a NSR in the calendar month immediately following the semiannual anniversary month. Further, 19 CFR 315.214(g)(1)(i)(B) states that if the NSR was initiated in the month immediately following the semiannual anniversary month, the POR will be the six-month period immediately preceding the semiannual anniversary month. Doo Won made the request for a NSR, which included all documents and information required by the statute and regulations, within one year of the date on which its fresh garlic first entered. Its request was filed in May, which is the semiannual anniversary month of the order. Therefore, the POR is November 1, 2016, through April 30, 2017.9 sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(b), and the information on the record, the Department finds that Doo Won’s request meets the threshold requirements for initiation of a NSR and, therefore, is initiating a NSR of Doo Won. The Department intends to issue the preliminary results within 180 days after the date on which this review is initiated and the final results within 90 days after the date on which we issue the preliminary results.10 It is the Department’s usual practice in cases involving non-market economies to require that a company seeking to establish eligibility for an antidumping duty rate separate from the country-wide rate (i.e., a separate rate) provide evidence of de jure and de facto absence of government control over the 8 See Memorandum, ‘‘New Shipper Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Fresh Garlic from the People’s Republic of China: U.S. Customs and Border Protection Entry Data,’’ dated June 21, 2017. 9 See 19 CFR 351.214(g)(1)(i)(B). 10 See section 751(a)(2)(B)(iv) of the Act. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:08 Jul 07, 2017 Jkt 241001 company’s export activities.11 Accordingly, the Department will issue questionnaires to Doo Won, which will include a section requesting information with regard to its export activities for the purpose of establishing its eligibility for a separate rate. The review will proceed if the responses provide sufficient indication that Doo Won is not subject to either de jure or de facto government control with respect to its exports of fresh garlic. On February 24, 2016, the President signed into law the ‘‘Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015,’’ H.R. 644, which made several amendments to section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act. We will conduct this new shipper review in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act, as amended by the Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015.12 Interested parties requiring access to proprietary information in this proceeding should submit applications for disclosure under administrative protective order in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305 and 351.306. This initiation and notice are in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214 and 351.221(c)(1)(i). 23, 2017, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Eastern time.

As part of NOAA’s ongoing efforts to provide industry awareness of and support for compliance with the Seafood Import Monitoring Program’s traceability data reporting and recordkeeping requirements, NMFS will hold public meetings to discuss the implementation of the U.S. Seafood Import Monitoring Program and address questions from participants. The meetings will address issues relevant to both foreign exporters and U.S. domestic importers of seafood species whose products are covered by the Seafood Import Monitoring Program (SIMP). The mandatory compliance date for SIMP is January 1, 2018. Please note, PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 however, that the rule has been challenged in Federal court and the resolution of that case may impact implementation of the rule, including the compliance date. The Seafood Import Monitoring Program is the first phase of a risk-based traceability program, which establishes the reporting and recordkeeping requirements needed to prevent illegally harvested and misrepresented seafood from entering into U.S. Commerce. In the development of the SIMP rule, 13 ‘‘priority’’ species were identified as being most at risk for Illegal, Unreported, and Unregulated (IUU) fishing and misrepresentation, and are the only species currently subject to this program. Importers of the 13 priority species (Abalone*, Atlantic Cod, Atlantic Blue Crab, Dolphinfish (Mahi Mahi), Grouper, Red King Crab, Pacific Cod, Red Snapper, Sea Cucumber, Sharks, Shrimp*, Swordfish, and Tunas: Albacore, Bigeye, Skipjack, Yellowfin, and Bluefin) will be required to submit harvest and landing information on those products through the International Trade Data System (ITDS) prior to entry into U.S. Commerce, and maintain supply chain records from the point of harvest to the point of entry into U.S Commerce for a period of two years after entry. *Note that the mandatory compliance date for Abalone and Shrimp has been stayed until further notice. Information on future SIMP implementation meetings and transcripts of prior meetings and webinars can be found at: http:// www.iuufishing.noaa.gov/ RecommendationsandActions/ RECOMMENDATION1415/ FinalRuleTraceability.aspx. Special Accommodations The meetings are physically accessible to people with disabilities. Requests for sign language interpretation or other auxiliary aids should be directed to Celeste Leroux at (202) 816–0661 prior to the meeting. Dated: July 3, 2017.
