Where either the respondent’s weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. The final results of this review shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by the final results of this review where applicable. In accordance with Commerce’s ‘‘automatic assessment’’ practice, for entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by each respondent which did not know that its merchandise was destined for the United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate entries not reviewed at the allothers rate of 20.11 percent 8 if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction. We intend to issue instructions to CBP 41 days after publication of the final results of this review.9 lotter on DSKBCFDHB2PROD with NOTICES 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of the notice of final results of administrative review for all shipments of wire rod from Mexico entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of the final results, as provided by section 751(a)(2) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for the firms listed above will be equal to the dumping margins established in the final results of this review, except if the ultimate rates are de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), in which case the cash deposit rates will be zero; (2) for merchandise exported by producers 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 in which the producer or exporter participated; (3) if the exporter 7 In the preliminary results, Commerce applied the assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012). 8 See Wire Rod Order, 67 FR at 65947. 9 See 19 CFR 356.8(a).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    This request is for extension of a current information collection. 
Under the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, the 
Secretary of Commerce has the responsibility for the conservation and 
management of marine fishery resources. Much of this responsibility has 
been delegated to NOAA's National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS). 
Under this stewardship role, the Secretary was given certain regulatory 
authorities to ensure the most beneficial uses of these resources. One 
of the regulatory steps taken to carry out the conservation and 
management objectives is to collect information from users of the 
resources.
    This collection requires vessel trip reports (VTRs) to be submitted 
weekly for all limited access Atlantic mackerel and longfin squid 1A 
and 1B permit holders. In addition, all limited access Atlantic 
mackerel, longfin squid 1A and 1B permit holders must maintain a vessel 
monitoring system (VMS) unit on their vessels and declare intent to 
target Atlantic mackerel or longfin squid and submit daily catch 
reports via VMS. They must also submit daily catch reports via VMS. 
Vessels that land over 20,000 lb of mackerel must notify NMFS Office of 
Law Enforcement (OLE) via VMS of the time and place of offloading at 
least 6 hours prior to crossing the VMS demarcation line on their 
return trip to port, or if the vessel does not fish seaward of the VMS 
demarcation line, at least 6 hours prior to landing.
    This collection also requires limited access Atlantic mackerel and 
longfin squid 1A and 1B permit holders to bring all catch aboard the 
vessel and make it available for sampling by an observer. If catch is 
not made available to an observer before discard, that catch is defined 
as slippage, and the vessel operator must complete a ``Released Catch 
Affidavit'' form within 48 hours of the end of the fishing trip which 
details why catch was slipped, estimates the quantity and species 
composition of the slipped catch, and records the time and location of 
the slipped catch.
    Finally, this collection requires any vessel with a limited access 
Atlantic mackerel permit intending to land over 20,000 lbs of Atlantic 
mackerel to contact NMFS at least 48 hours in advance of a fishing trip 
to request an observer. Vessels currently contact NMFS via phone, and 
selection notices or waivers are issued by NMFS via VMS. If service 
providers are unable to provide coverage, an owner, operator, or vessel 
manager may request a waiver by calling the Northeast Fisheries 
Observer Program.
    This collection is necessary for continued catch monitoring for the 
Atlantic mackerel, squid, and butterfish fisheries and to address 
incidental catch of river herring and shad through responsible 
management.

II. Method of Collection

VTR Requirements

    All Atlantic mackerel, squid, and butterfish permit holders must 
submit VTRs weekly either online or by submitting them by paper form 
through the mail.

VMS Requirements

    Vessels with VMS requirements are required to declare their intent 
to fish and submit daily catch reports using electronic VMS units on 
board the vessel. Other VMS actions include trip start and pre-landing 
notifications, activity and gear codes, and trip type declaration.

Documentation of Slippage Events

    Any slippage event that occurs during a trip requires the 
completion of a ``Released Catch Affidavit'', which is submitted by 
signed paper form sent in the mail.

Observer Program Call-In Requirements

    Vessels with a limited access mackerel permit intending to land 
over 20,000 lb of Atlantic mackerel are required to give advance 
notification to the Northeast Fisheries Observer Program (NEFOP) before 
the start of a trip in order to receive a fisheries observer or a 
waiver. Vessels use a toll-free call-in number or a local phone number 
to comply with this requirement.
