SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On October 6, 2008, Commerce published the Order on hangers from China.1 On February 5, 2019, Commerce published the notice of initiation of the second sunset review of the antidumping duty Order on hangers from China, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).2 On February 13, 2019, Commerce received a notice of intent to participate from M&B Metal Products Company, Inc. (the domestic interested party), within the deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i).3 The domestic interested party claimed interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act, as a manufacturer of a domestic like product in the United States. On February 28, 2019, we received a complete substantive response from the domestic interested party within the 30day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i).4 We received no substantive responses from respondent interested parties with respect to the Order covered by this sunset review, nor was a hearing requested. Commerce received no comments on the adequacy of the domestic interested party’s substantive response in this sunset review. Pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), Commerce is conducting an expedited (120-day) sunset review of this order. Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to the Order is steel wire garment hangers. For a complete description of the scope of the Order, see the accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum.5 Analysis of Comments Received khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES All issues raised in this review, including the likelihood of continuation or recurrence of dumping in the event 1 See Notice of Antidumping Duty Order: Steel Wire Garment Hangers from the People’s Republic of China, 73 FR 58111 (October 6, 2008) (Order). 2 See Initiation of Five-Year (Sunset) Reviews, 84 FR 1704 (February 5, 2019). 3 See Petitioner’s Letter, ‘‘Notice of Intent to Participate,’’ dated February 13, 2019. 4 See Petitioner’s Letter, ‘‘Substantive Response to Notice of Initiation,’’ dated February 28, 2019. 5 See Memorandum, ‘‘Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Expedited Second Sunset Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Steel Wire Garment Hangers from the People’s Republic of China’’ (Issues and Decision Memorandum), dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice.

The Issues and Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically via Enforcement and Compliance’s Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS).

Final Results of Sunset Review Pursuant to sections 751(c)(1) and 752(c)(1) and (3) of the Act, we determine that revocation of the antidumping duty Order on hangers from China would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping, and that the magnitude of the margins likely to prevail would be weightedaverage dumping margins up to 187.25 percent.

ACTION: Notice; request for comments AGENCY: The Regional Administrator, West Coast Region, NMFS, has made a preliminary determination that an application for an Exempted Fishing Permit warrants further consideration. The application, submitted by the West Coast Pelagic Conservation Group (a non-profit industry group), requests an exemption from the expected prohibition of directed fishing for Pacific sardine for the 2019–2020 fishing year to collect Pacific sardine as part of an industry-based scientific survey.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Lynn Massey, West Coast Region, NMFS, (562) 436–2462, lynn.massey@ noaa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On May 28, 2019, NMFS published a proposed rule (84 FR 24459) to implement Pacific sardine harvest specifications for the 2019–2020 fishing year off the U.S. West Coast. This proposed rule included a 4,000 metric ton (mt) annual catch target (ACT) and a prohibition on directed commercial fishing for Pacific sardine off the coasts of Washington, Oregon, and California (except for small directed catch and catch of live bait). At the April 2019 Pacific Fishery Management Council (Council) meeting, the Council voted in support of the West Coast Pelagic Conservation Group’s (WCPCG) EFP application and one other application that is being processed on a separate track. The WCPCG’s application requests an exemption from the prohibition to directly harvest Pacific sardine. The proposed 2019– 2020 Pacific sardine harvest specifications take into account the potential for up to 405 mt (the combined total of the two EFP proposals the Council reviewed) of the ACT to be harvested under EFPs. The WCPCG EFP application requests a permit to directly harvest 10 mt of CPS, of which the applicant estimates no more than 5 mt will be Pacific sardine. The purpose of the EFP is to collect biological samples in areas inshore of the 2019 NMFS Southwest Fisheries Science Center acoustic trawl survey to better assess species composition and CPS distribution and abundance. An EFP is necessary to conduct this collection because the proposed 2019–2020 harvest specifications would prohibit most directed fishing for Pacific sardine. The collections under the EFP would take place between approximately June 25, 2019, and August 31, 2019. If NMFS E:\FR\FM\11JNN1.SGM 11JNN1
