On July 9, 2015, the Court issued its opinion on the Bell Supply Scope Ruling remanding Commerce’s determination back to the agency for further analysis.3 Commerce issued a redetermination on remand, under protest, which continued to find that the merchandise in question was within the scope of the Orders.4 On April 27, 2016, the CIT issued its opinion on the First Remand Results, again remanding Commerce’s determination for further analysis.5 On August 11, 2016, Commerce issued the Second Remand Results, determining that green tubes manufactured in China, and subsequently finished in a third country, are not covered by the scope of the Orders.6 In Bell Supply III, the CIT sustained Commerce’s Second Remand Results.7 On January 19, 2017, Commerce published a notice of a court decision that is not ‘‘in harmony’’ with a Commerce determination,8 in fulfillment of the publication requirements of Timken,9 as clarified by Diamond Sawblades.10 Commerce’s Timken Notice and Amended Final Scope Ruling also amended the Bell Supply Scope Ruling to find that the 2 See Certain Oil Country Tubular Goods from the People’s Republic of China: Amended Final Affirmative Countervailing Duty Determination and Countervailing Duty Order, 75 FR 3203 (January 20, 2010); see also Certain Oil Country Tubular Goods from the People’s Republic of China: Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Antidumping Duty Order, 75 FR 28551 (May 21, 2010) (collectively, Orders). 3 See Bell Supply Co. v.

On April 25, 2018, the CAFC vacated the CIT’s decision sustaining the Second Remand Results, and remanded the case to the CIT to determine whether Commerce properly applied its substantial transformation analysis in the Bell Supply Scope Ruling.12 On October 18, 2018, the CIT remanded Commerce’s Bell Supply Scope Ruling, finding that certain factors considered in Commerce’s substantial transformation analysis were not supported by substantial evidence.13 Commerce issued the Third Remand Results on March 28, 2019, in which Commerce reconsidered the aspects of its substantial transformation analysis remanded by the Court and continued to find that green tubes are not substantially transformed by the finishing process in third countries, and therefore are covered by the scope of the Orders.14 On July 22, 2019, the CIT sustained Commerce’s Third Remand Results.15 Amended Final Scope Ruling There is now a final court decision with respect to the Bell Supply Scope Ruling. Previously, the Timken Notice and Amended Final Scope Ruling amended the Bell Supply Scope Ruling to find that the scope did not cover the merchandise at issue. Therefore, Commerce is amending its scope ruling and finds that the scope of the Orders covers the products addressed in the Bell Supply Scope Ruling. The period to appeal the CIT’s ruling expired on September 22, 2019. Because no parties appealed the CIT’s ruling, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to continue to suspend liquidation and to require a cash deposit of estimated duties on the merchandise subject to the scope ruling entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after June 20, 2012, 11 See Timken Notice and Amended Final Scope Ruling 12 See Bell Supply Co. v.

ACTION: Notice; request for comments. AGENCY: NMFS announces the request for renewal of a 2019 exempted fishing permit application titled, ‘‘Year-round Coastwide Midwater Rockfish EFP: Monitoring and Minimizing Salmon Bycatch When Targeting Rockfish in the Shorebased IFQ Fishery’’ for the 2020 fishing year (herein referred to as the ‘‘Trawl Gear EFP’’). The application, submitted by the West Coast Seafood Processors Association, Environmental Defense Fund, Oregon Trawl Commission, and Midwater Trawlers Cooperative, requests a permit to test whether removing certain gear, time, and area restrictions for vessels fishing under the Trawl Rationalization Program’s Shorebased Individual Fishing Quota Program may impact the nature and extent of bycatch of prohibited species (e.g., Chinook salmon). This exempted fishing permit would allow participating groundfish bottom and midwater trawl vessels more flexibility than allowed in current regulations to target pelagic rockfish species, such as widow, chilipepper, and yellowtail rockfish. Regulations under the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:02 Oct 21, 2019 Jkt 250001 require publication of this notification to provide interested parties the opportunity to comment on applications for proposed exempted fishing permits.

Instructions: Comments sent by any other method, to any other address or individual, or received after the end of the comment period, may not be considered by NMFS. All comments received are a part of the public record and would generally be posted for public viewing on www.regulations.gov without change. All personal identifying information (e.g., name, address, etc.), confidential business information, or otherwise sensitive information submitted voluntarily by the sender would be publicly accessible. NMFS would accept anonymous comments (enter ‘‘N/A’’ in the required fields if you wish to remain anonymous). Attachments to electronic comments would be accepted in Microsoft Word, Excel, or Adobe PDF file formats only. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Lynn Massey, West Coast Region, NMFS, at (562) 436–2462, lynn.massey@ noaa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This action is authorized by the Pacific Coast Groundfish Fishery Management Plan (FMP) and implementing regulations at 50 CFR 600.745, which allow NMFS Regional Administrators to authorize exempted fishing permits (EFPs) to test fishing activities that would otherwise be prohibited. At the September 2018 Pacific Fishery Management Council (Council) meeting, the Council voted to recommend the 2019 Trawl Gear EFP project to NMFS, and made the preliminary decision to PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 recommend continuing the EFP project in 2020. NMFS published a description of the 2019 Trawl Gear EFP in the Federal Register on November 30, 2018 (83 FR 61603), and solicited public comments through December 17, 2018. NMFS issued a total of 46 EFPs to eligible vessels for the 2019 fishing year. As of September 30, 2019, 15 vessels have participated in the Trawl Gear EFP during the 2019 fishing year (7 vessels fished midwater only, 2 fished bottom trawl only, and 6 fished using both gear types). These vessels have caught 46 Chinook salmon, no eulachon, sturgeon, or Coho salmon, and approximately 13.7 million pounds of groundfish, totaling approximately $4.8 million in revenue. At the September 2019 Council meeting, the EFP applicants requested renewal of the 2019 Trawl Gear EFP (described in additional detail at 83 FR 61603, November 30, 2019) with no changes for the 2020 fishing year. The same bycatch limits for Chinook salmon recommended by the Council in 2019 would be maintained during the 2020 fishing year (i.e., 1,000 fish for Chinook salmon taken north of 42 degrees North latitude (N. lat.) and 100 fish for Chinook salmon taken south of 42 degrees N. lat). The EFP applicants have not proposed a specific list of participating vessels, but rather are proposing that NMFS publish a public notice to gauge interest from limited entry groundfish midwater and bottom trawl vessels. Depending on the amount of interest and where vessels indicate interest in fishing, NMFS may need to limit participation by time and area to mitigate potential impacts. After publication of this document in the Federal Register, NMFS may approve and issue the EFP after the close of the public comment period. NMFS will consider comments submitted, as well as the Council’s discussion at their September 2019 meeting, in deciding whether to approve the application as requested. NMFS may approve the application in its entirety or may make any alterations needed to achieve the goals of the EFP.

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), Commerce will determine, 
and U.S. Customs and Border Protections (CBP) shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance 
with the final results of this review. We will calculate importer-
specific assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount 
of antidumping duties calculated for each importer's examined sales and 
the total entered value of the sales in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1).
    For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by each 
respondent for which it did not know its merchandise was destined for 
the United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries 
at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate 
company(ies) involved in the transaction. We intend to issue 
liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of this 
notice.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for 
all shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication, as 
provided by section 751(a)(2) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for 
the respondents noted above will be the rate established in the final 
results of this administrative review; (2) for merchandise exported by 
manufacturers or exporters not covered in this administrative review 
but covered in a prior segment of the proceeding, the cash deposit rate 
will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most 
recently completed segment of this proceeding; (3) if the exporter is 
not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original 
investigation, but the producer is, then the cash deposit rate will be 
the rate established for the most recently completed segment of this 
proceeding for the producer of the subject merchandise; and (4) the 
cash deposit rate for all other producers or exporters will continue to 
be 11.80 percent, the all-others rate established in the 
investigation.\7\ These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) to file a certificate regarding 
the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the 
relevant entries during the POR. Failure to comply with this 
requirement could result in Commerce's presumption that reimbursement 
of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled 
antidumping duties.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction 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 the terms of an APO is a 
sanctionable violation.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5).
