We intend to instruct CBP to require, at the same time as importers would normally deposit estimated duties on this merchandise, cash deposits for each entry of subject merchandise equal to the rates noted below. These instructions suspending liquidation will remain in effect until further notice. The all-others rates apply to all producers or exporters not specifically listed. Estimated Subsidy Rates The estimated subsidy rates for each countervailing duty order are as follows: Subsidy rate (percent) Exporter/producer India Kumar Industries, India .............. Paras Intermediates Private Limited .......................................... All Others .................................... 6.99 3.03 5.01 China jspears on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES JC Chemicals Limited ................. Sigmachem Corp ........................ All Others .................................... 144.01 144.01 144.01 Provisional Measures Section 703(d) of the Act states that the suspension of liquidation pursuant to an affirmative preliminary determination may not remain in effect for more than four months. Commerce published its affirmative Preliminary Determinations on September 4, 2018. Therefore, the four-month period beginning on the date of the publication of the Preliminary Determinations ended on January 1, 2019. Pursuant to section 707(b) of the Act, the collection of cash deposits at the rates listed above will begin on the date of publication of the ITC’s final injury determination in the Federal Register. Therefore, in accordance with section 703(d) of the Act, Commerce instructed CBP to terminate the suspension of liquidation and to liquidate, without regard to countervailing duties, unliquidated entries of glycine from India and China entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption after January 1, 2019, the date on which provisional measures expired, through the day preceding the date of publication of the ITC’s final affirmative injury determinations in the Federal VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:30 Jun 20, 2019 Jkt 247001 Register. Suspension of liquidation will resume on the date of publication of the ITC’s final affirmative injury determinations in the Federal Register. Notifications to Interested Parties This notice constitutes the countervailing duty orders with respect to glycine from India and China pursuant to section 706(a) of the Act. Interested parties can find a list of countervailing duty orders currently in effect at http://enforcement.trade.gov/ stats/iastats1.html. These orders are published in accordance with sections 705(c) and 706(a) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.211(b). Dated: June 18, 2019. Jeffrey I. Kessler, Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance. Appendix Scope of the Orders The merchandise covered by these orders is glycine at any purity level or grade. This includes glycine of all purity levels, which covers all forms of crude or technical glycine including, but not limited to, sodium glycinate, glycine slurry and any other forms of amino acetic acid or glycine. Subject merchandise also includes glycine and precursors of dried crystalline glycine that are processed in a third country, including, but not limited to, refining or any other processing that would not otherwise remove the merchandise from the scope of these orders if performed in the country of manufacture of the in-scope glycine or precursors of dried crystalline glycine. Glycine has the Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) registry number of 56–40–6. Glycine and glycine slurry are classified under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheading 2922.49.43.00. Sodium glycinate is classified in the HTSUS under 2922.49.80.00. While the HTSUS subheadings and CAS registry number are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of these orders is dispositive.

This proposed rule included a 4,514 metric ton (mt) annual catch limit (ACL) 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 California Wetfish Producer Association’s (CWPA) exempted fishing permit (EFP) application as well as one other application that NMFS is evaluating separately, which both requested an exemption from the prohibition on directed fishing for Pacific sardine. The Council therefore structured the 2019– 2020 Pacific sardine harvest specifications so that up to 405 mt (the combined total of the anticipated harvests under the two EFP proposals the Council reviewed) of the ACL could be harvested under EFPs. The CWPA requested to directly harvest up to 400 mt of Pacific sardine for its Coastal Pelagic Species Near-shore Cooperative Survey (CPS–NCS). Since 2012 the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, in partnership with the CWPA, has been conducting aerial surveys to estimate the biomass and distribution of sardine and certain other CPS species in nearshore waters in the Southern California Bight, and in the Monterey-San Francisco area since the summer of 2017. Currently, there is uncertainty in the biomass estimates from aerial spotter pilots. The CPS–NCS survey associated with the proposed EFP is part of research to quantify that level of uncertainty by capturing CPS schools identified by aerial spotter pilots and validating the biomass and species composition of the schools. A portion of each point set (i.e., an individual haul of fish captured with a purse seine net) will be retained for biological sampling, and the remainder will be sold by the participating fishermen and processors to offset research costs and avoid unnecessary discard. This research contributes to broader efforts to understand CPS biomass in shallow, nearshore areas that NOAA’s CPS offshore acoustic trawl survey is unable to access. If NMFS issues this EFP, the CPS– NCS will survey nearshore waters of the Southern California Bight for 7–10 days between July 1, 2019 and June 30, 2020. Any harvest under this EFP would count against the ACL for Pacific sardine. If NMFS does not issue this EFP, then this 400 mt-portion of the ACL would be available for harvest by other permissible fishing activities.

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, which begins on July 1. 
This proposed rule included a 4,514 metric ton (mt) annual catch limit 
(ACL) 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 California Wetfish Producer Association's (CWPA) 
exempted fishing permit (EFP) application as well as one other 
application that NMFS is evaluating separately, which both requested an 
exemption from the prohibition on directed fishing for Pacific sardine. 
The Council therefore structured the 2019-2020 Pacific sardine harvest 
specifications so that up to 405 mt (the combined total of the 
anticipated harvests under the two EFP proposals the Council reviewed) 
of the ACL could be harvested under EFPs. The CWPA requested to 
directly harvest up to 400 mt of Pacific sardine for its Coastal 
Pelagic Species Near-shore Cooperative Survey (CPS-NCS).
    Since 2012 the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, in 
partnership with the CWPA, has been conducting aerial surveys to 
estimate the biomass and distribution of sardine and certain other CPS 
species in nearshore waters in the Southern California Bight, and in

there is uncertainty in the biomass estimates from aerial spotter 
pilots. The CPS-NCS survey associated with the proposed EFP is part of

of the Southern California Bight for 7-10 days between July 1, 2019 and 
June 30, 2020. Any harvest under this EFP would count against the ACL 
for Pacific sardine. If NMFS does not issue this EFP, then this 400 mt-
portion of the ACL would be available for harvest by other permissible 
fishing activities.
