DATES: This Authorization is effective from June 1, 2019 through May 31, 2020. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Amy Fowler, Office of Protected Resources, NMFS, (301) 427–8401. Electronic copies of the application and supporting documents, as well as a list of the references cited in this document, may be obtained online at: https:// www.fisheries.noaa.gov/national/ marine-mammal-protection/incidentaltake-authorizations-research-and-otheractivities. In case of problems accessing these documents, please call the contact listed above. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The MMPA prohibits the ‘‘take’’ of marine mammals, with certain exceptions. Sections 101(a)(5)(A) and (D) of the MMPA (16 U.S.C. 1361 et seq.) direct the Secretary of Commerce (as delegated to NMFS) to allow, upon request, the incidental, but not intentional, taking of small numbers of marine mammals by U.S. citizens who engage in a specified activity (other than commercial fishing) within a specified geographical region if certain findings are made and either regulations are issued or, if the taking is limited to harassment, a notice of a proposed incidental take authorization may be provided to the public for review. Authorization for incidental takings shall be granted if NMFS finds that the taking will have a negligible impact on the species or stock(s) and will not have an unmitigable adverse impact on the availability of the species or stock(s) for taking for subsistence uses (where relevant). Further, NMFS must prescribe the permissible methods of taking and other means of effecting the least practicable adverse impact on the affected species or stocks and their habitat, paying particular attention to rookeries, mating grounds, and areas of similar significance, and on the availability of such species or stocks for taking for certain subsistence uses (referred to in shorthand as ‘‘mitigation’’); and requirements pertaining to the mitigation, monitoring and reporting of such takings are set forth. PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 The definitions of all applicable MMPA statutory terms cited above are included in the relevant sections below. Summary of Request On November 20, 2018, NMFS received a request from L–DEO for an IHA to take marine mammals incidental to conducting seismic geophysical surveys in the Gulf of Alaska along the Alaska Peninsula subduction zone. On December 19, 2018, NMFS received a revised copy of the application, and that application was deemed adequate and complete on February 11, 2019. L– DEO’s request is for take of a small number of 21 marine mammal species by Level B harassment and Level A harassment. Underwater sound associated with airgun use may result in the behavioral harassment or auditory injury of marine mammals in the ensonified areas. Neither L–DEO nor NMFS expects serious injury or mortality to result from this activity and, therefore, an IHA is appropriate. NMFS previously issued an IHA to L– DEO for similar work (76 FR 38621; July 1, 2011). L–DEO complied with all the requirements (e.g., mitigation, monitoring, and reporting) of the previous IHA and information regarding their monitoring results may be found in the ‘‘Description of Marine Mammals in the Area of Specified Activities.’’ Description of the Specified Activity Overview The specified activity consists of a high energy geophysical seismic survey conducted in a portion of the Gulf of Alaska. Researchers from LamontDoherty Earth Observatory (L–DEO and other institutions, with funding from NSF, plan to conduct the seismic survey from the Research Vessel (R/V) Marcus G. Langseth (Langseth) in the Gulf of Alaska during 2019. The NSF-owned Langseth is operated by Columbia University’s L–DEO under an existing Cooperative Agreement. The planned seismic survey would likely occur in the Gulf of Alaska off the Alaska Peninsula and the eastern Aleutian islands during late spring 2019 and would use a 36airgun towed array with a total discharge volume of ∼6600 in 3. The survey would take place within the U.S. Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), in water ∼15 to ∼6184 m deep and would take advantage of a network of ocean bottom seismometers (OBSs) and onshore seismometers currently installed in the area. During the survey, approximately 13 percent of the survey kilometers would take place in shallow water (<100 meter (m)), 27 percent would occur in intermediate water E:\FR\FM\12JNN1.SGM 12JNN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On February 8, 2019, Commerce published in the Federal Register a 
notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of, among 
other orders, the antidumping duty order on potassium permanganate from 
China for the POR, January 1, 2018, to December 31, 2018.\1\ On

Chongqing Changyuan Group Limited (Chongqing Changyuan Chemical 
Corporation Limited (Changyuan) filed a timely request for review, in 
accordance with 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act).\2\ On April 1, 2019, based on this request and accordance with

notice of initiation of an administrative review of the antidumping 
duty order on potassium permanganate from China, covering the POR.\3\

Changyuan, ``Chongqing Changyuan Group Limited's Withdrawal of 
Request for Review, Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty 
Order on Potassium Permanganate from the People's Republic of

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

Rescission of Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary 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 date of 
publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. PAL 
and Changyuan were the only respondents party to this review. As noted 
above, PAL and Changyuan withdrew their requests for review by the 90-
day deadline. Commerce received no other requests for review of PAL and 
Changyuan or with respect to any other companies. As a result, Commerce 
is rescinding the administrative review of potassium permanganate from 
China covering the POR in its entirety.

Assessment

    We will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. Because Commerce is 
rescinding this administrative review in its entirety, the entries to 
which this administrative review pertained shall be assessed 
antidumping duties at rates equal to the cash deposit 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

[[Page 27246]]

instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication of this notice.

Notifications

    This notice serves as a final 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.
    This notice also serves as a final reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305, which continues 
to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the 
proceeding. Timely written notification of the return/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).
