Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 232 / Tuesday, December 5, 2017 / Notices our evaluation and analysis of comments will be considered in the development of our decisionmaking documents. As part of our decisionmaking process regarding a GE organism’s regulatory status, APHIS prepares a plant pest risk assessment to assess its plant pest risk and the appropriate environmental documentation—either an environmental assessment (EA) or an environmental impact statement (EIS)— in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), to provide the Agency with a review and analysis of any potential environmental impacts associated with the petition request. For petitions for which APHIS prepares an EA, APHIS will follow our published process for soliciting public comment (see footnote 1) and publish a separate notice in the Federal Register announcing the availability of APHIS’ EA and plant pest risk assessment. Should APHIS determine that an EIS is necessary, APHIS will complete the NEPA EIS process in accordance with Council on Environmental Quality regulations (40 CFR part 1500–1508) and APHIS’ NEPA implementing regulations (7 CFR part 372).

(the Department) and the International Trade Commission (ITC) that 
revocation of the antidumping duty (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) 
orders on high pressure steel cylinders (Steel Cylinders) from the 
People's Republic of China (PRC) would likely lead to a continuation or 
recurrence of dumping and countervailable subsidies and material injury 
to an industry in the United States, the Department is publishing a 
notice of continuation of the AD and CVD orders.

DATES: Applicable December 5, 2017.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On June 21, 2012, the Department published in the Federal Register 
the AD and CVD orders on Steel Cylinders from the PRC.\1\ On May 1, 
2017, the Department published the notice of initiation of the first 
sunset reviews of the AD and CVD orders on Steel Cylinders \2\ from the 
PRC pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(the Act). On May 1, 2017, the ITC instituted its review of the 
orders.\3\

(May 1, 2017).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As a result of these expedited sunset reviews, the Department 
determined that revocation of the AD order on Steel Cylinders from the 
PRC would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping, and 
that revocation of the CVD order on Steel Cylinders from the PRC would 
likely lead to continuation or recurrence of of countervailable 
subsidies. The Department, therefore, notified the ITC of the magnitude 
of the dumping margins and countervailable subsidy rates likely to 
prevail should the AD and CVD orders be revoked.\4\
