Authority Enhancement of Survival Permits are issued in accordance with section 10(a)(1)(A) of the ESA (16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.), and regulations governing ESAlisted fish and wildlife permits (50 CFR parts 222–227). NMFS issues permits based on findings that such permits: (1) Were applied for in good faith; (2) if granted and exercised would not operate to the disadvantage of the listed species that are the subject of the permit; and (3) are consistent with the purposes and policy set forth in section 2 of the ESA. The authority to take listed species is subject to conditions set forth in the permits. Under a Safe Harbor Agreement, participating landowners voluntarily undertake management activities on their property to enhance, restore, or maintain habitat benefiting species listed under the ESA. Safe Harbor Agreements, and the subsequent Enhancement of Survival Permits that are issued pursuant to section PO 00000 Frm 00023 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 10(a)(1)(A) of the ESA, encourage private and other non-Federal property owners to implement conservation efforts for listed species by assuring property owners that they will not be subjected to increased property-use restrictions as a result of their efforts to attract listed species to their property and increase the numbers or distribution of these species already on their property. Application requirements and issuance criteria for Enhancement of Survival Permits through Safe Harbor Agreements are found in 50 CFR 222.308(b), 222.308(c), and the Announcement of Final Safe Harbor Policy published on June 17, 1999 (64 FR 32717). These permits allow any necessary future incidental take of covered species above the mutually agreed-upon baseline conditions for those species in accordance with the terms and conditions of the permits and accompanying agreements. An interested party may submit data, views, arguments, or a request for a hearing with respect to the action proposed in the application or related matters. Anyone requesting a hearing on a matter pursuant to this notice should set out the specific reasons why a hearing on that matter would be appropriate (see ADDRESSES).

Banke Revocable Trust, (Applicant) is requesting an Enhancement of Survival Permit and approval of an associated proposed Agreement that was developed by NMFS and the Applicant.

Yellowjacket Creek and Kellogg Creek are tributaries to Redwood Creek, thence Maacama Creek, thence the Russian River in Sonoma County, California. The proposed duration of the Agreement and the associated Enhancement of Survival Permit is 25 years. The proposed Enhancement of Survival Permit would authorize the incidental taking of CCC coho salmon and CCC steelhead that may be associated with covered activities including beneficial management activities, routine land use activities, and the potential future return of the E:\FR\FM\18JNN1.SGM 18JNN1

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rescission of Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), Commerce will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party that requested 
the review withdraws its request within 90 days of the publication of 
the notice of initiation of the requested review. In this case, SFTC 
and the petitioner timely withdrew their requests by the 90-day 
deadline and no other party requested an administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order. Therefore, we are rescinding the administrative 
review of the antidumping duty order on pencils from China for the POR 
December 1, 2016, through November 30, 2017, in its entirety, in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1).

Assessment

    Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to 
assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of pencils from 
China during the POR at rates equal to the cash deposit rate of 
estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or 
withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(c)(1)(i). Commerce intends to issue appropriate assessment 
instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of this 
notice in the Federal Register.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as the only 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 review period. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in Commerce's presumption that 
reimbursement of the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as the only reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written 
notification of the return or destruction of APO materials, or 
conversion to judicial protective order, is hereby requested. Failure 
to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a violation which 
is subject to sanction.
    This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 
751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).
