Partial Rescission of Administrative Review We are rescinding this administrative review for Dicha Sombrilla. In the Preliminary Results, we made a preliminary determination to rescind the review for Dicha Sombrilla as it did not have reviewable entries during the POR.4 We received no comments with regard to these preliminary results, and are accordingly rescinding the review for Dicha Sombrilla in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3). Methodology The Department conducted this review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(A) of the Act. For each of the subsidy programs found countervailable, we find that there is a subsidy, i.e., a financial contribution by an ‘‘authority’’ that confers a benefit to the recipient, and that the subsidy is specific.5 For a full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, including our reliance, in part, on adverse facts available pursuant to sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.6 Final Results of Administrative Review In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5), we find the countervailable subsidy rates for the producers/exporters under review to be as follows: Company Truong Vinh Ltd ........................

Subsidy rate (percent) 313.97 313.97 Assessment Rates and Cash Deposit Requirement Consistent with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(2), we intend to issue assessment instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 15 days after the date of these final results of review, to liquidate shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption, on or after November 3, 2014, through December 31, 2015, at the ad valorem rates listed above. 4 See Steel Nails Vietnam Prelim, at 29023. sections 771(5)(B) and (D) of the Act regarding financial contribution; section 771(5)(E) of the Act regarding benefit; and, section 771(5A) of the Act regarding specificity. 6 See Steel Nails Vietnam Prelim, and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum. 5 See E:\FR\FM\17OCN1.SGM 17OCN1 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 199 / Tuesday, October 17, 2017 / Notices In accordance with section 751(a)(1) of the Act, we intend to instruct CBP to collect cash deposits of estimated CVDs in the amounts shown for each of the respective companies listed above. For all non-reviewed firms, including Dicha Sombrilla, we will instruct CBP to continue to collect cash deposits at the most-recent company-specific or allothers rate applicable to the company, as appropriate. These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Chapter 35). Agency: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Title: Highly Migratory Species Vessel Logbooks and Cost-Earnings Data Reports. OMB Control Number: 0648–0371. Form Number(s): NOAA Form 88– 191. Type of Request: Regular (revision and extension of a currently approved information collection). Number of Respondents: 7,213. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:10 Oct 16, 2017 Jkt 244001 Average Hours per Response: 10 minutes for cost/earnings summaries attached to logbook reports, 30 minutes for annual expenditure forms, 12 minutes for logbook catch trip and set reports, 2 minutes for negative logbook catch reports; cost-earning trip reports and annual expenditure reports, 30 minute each. Burden Hours: 31,033. Needs and Uses: This request is for revision and extension of a current information collection. Under the provisions of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (16 U.S.C. 1801 et seq.), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) is responsible for management of the nation’s marine fisheries. In addition, NMFS must comply with the Atlantic Tunas Convention Act of 1975 (16 U.S.C. 971 et seq.), under which the agency implements recommendations by the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT), as necessary and appropriate. This information collection is being revised to include modified trip summary and cost-earnings logbook forms for the Atlantic Tunas General Category, Swordfish General Commercial, and Atlantic Highly Migratory Species (HMS) Charter/ Headboat fisheries. Reporting burden associated with logbooks for the Atlantic Tunas General Category and HMS Charter/Headboat fisheries has been authorized under previous versions of this information collection, but the reporting burden associated with the Swordfish General Commercial permit is new as it was implemented only in 2014, and the category has not previously been selected for logbook reporting. NMFS collects information via vessel logbooks to monitor the U.S. catch of Atlantic swordfish, sharks, billfish, and tunas in relation to the quotas, thereby ensuring that the United States complies with its domestic and international obligations. The HMS logbook program, OMB Control No. 0648–0371, was specifically designed to collect the vessel level information needed for the management of Atlantic HMS, and includes set forms, trip forms, negative reports, and cost-earning requirements for both commercial and recreational vessels. The information supplied through the HMS logbook program provides the catch and effort data on a per-set or per-trip level of resolution for both directed and incidental species. In addition to HMS fisheries, the HMS logbook program is also used to report PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 48215 catches of dolphin and wahoo by commercial and charter/headboat fisheries by vessels that do not possess other federal permits. Additionally, the HMS logbook collects data on incidental species, including sea turtles, which is necessary to evaluate the fisheries in terms of bycatch and encounters with protected species. While most HMS fishermen use the HMS logbook program, HMS can also be reported as part of several other logbook collections including the Northeast Region Fishing Vessel Trip Reports (0648–0212) and Southeast Region Coastal Logbook (0648–0016). These data are necessary to assess the status of HMS, dolphin, and wahoo in each fishery. International stock assessments for tunas, swordfish, billfish, and some species of sharks are conducted through ICCAT’s Standing Committee on Research and Statistics periodically and provide, in part, the basis for ICCAT management recommendations which become binding on member nations. Domestic stock assessments for most species of sharks and for dolphin and wahoo are used as the basis of managing these species. Supplementary information on fishing costs and earnings has been collected via the HMS logbook program. This economic information enables NMFS to assess the economic impacts of regulatory programs on small businesses and fishing communities, consistent with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), Executive Order 12866, the Regulatory Flexibility Act, and other domestic laws. Affected Public: Business and other for-profit organizations; individuals or households. Frequency: Annually and on occasion. Respondent’s Obligation: Mandatory. This information collection request may be viewed at reginfo.gov. Follow the instructions to view Department of Commerce collections currently under review by OMB. Written comments and recommendations for the proposed information collection should be sent within 30 days of publication of this notice to OIRA_Submission@ omb.eop.gov or fax to (202) 395–5806.

    We are rescinding this administrative review for Dicha Sombrilla. 
In the Preliminary Results, we made a preliminary determination to 
rescind the review for Dicha Sombrilla as it did not have reviewable 
entries during the POR.\4\ We received no comments with regard to these 
preliminary results, and are accordingly rescinding the review for 
Dicha Sombrilla in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3).

Methodology

    The Department conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(A) of the Act. For each of the subsidy programs found 
countervailable, we find that there is a subsidy, i.e., a financial 
contribution by an ``authority'' that confers a benefit to the 
recipient, and that the subsidy is specific.\5\ For a full description 
of the methodology underlying our conclusions, including our reliance, 
in part, on adverse facts available pursuant to sections 776(a) and (b) 
of the Act, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See sections 771(5)(B) and (D) of the Act regarding 
financial contribution; section 771(5)(E) of the Act regarding 
benefit; and, section 771(5A) of the Act regarding specificity.
    \6\ See Steel Nails Vietnam Prelim, and accompanying Issues and 
Decision Memorandum.
