We received no information from CBP contrary to the statements of no shipments from the companies contained in the attachments to the CBP Information Memorandum.11 On June 28, 2019, we received a certification of no shipments of subject merchandise from Mueller, which contained documentation in support of its contention that it had no prior knowledge of the entry of products it had sold into the United States.12 Based on this evidence, we preliminarily determined that Mueller made no shipments of subject merchandise into the United States during the POR.13 On July 8, 2019, we received a certification of no shipments of subject merchandise from Conduit and RYMCO which contained documentation supporting their contentions that they had no prior knowledge of subject merchandise exported to the United States during the POR, and that the products listed in the CBP data were not subject merchandise.14 Based on this evidence, we preliminarily determined that Conduit and RYMCO made no shipments of subject merchandise into the United States during the POR.15 For the reasons explained in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, we continue to determine for these final results that Conduit, Mueller, and RYMCO made no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. Assessment Commerce shall determine and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries.

Cash Deposit Requirements The following deposit requirements for estimated antidumping duties will be effective upon publication of the notice of these final results of review for all shipments of circular welded nonalloy steel pipe from Mexico entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication as provided by section 751(a)(2) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Conduit, Mueller, and RYMCO will continue to be the companyspecific rate published for the most recent period; (2) for merchandise exported by producers or exporters not covered in this 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 recent period; (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 recent period for the producer of the merchandise; (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or exporters will continue to be 32.62 percent, the all-others rate established in the LTFV investigation.17 These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Importers 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 and/or countervailing duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this POR. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in Commerce’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties and/or countervailing duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties. 16 For a full discussion of this clarification, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). 17 See Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Circular Welded Non-Alloy Steel Pipe from Mexico, 57 FR 42953 (September 17, 1992); see also the Order.

When met adequately, those requirements allow better-informed conservation and management decisions on the use of living marine resources and marine habitat in federally managed fisheries. Obtaining these data improves the ability of NOAA Fisheries and the Regional Fishery Management Councils (Councils) to monitor, explain and predict changes in the economic performance and impacts of federally managed commercial fisheries. Measures of economic performance include costs, earnings, and profitability (net revenue); productivity and economic efficiency; capacity; economic stability; the level and distribution of net economic benefits to society; and market power. The economic impacts include sector, community or regionspecific, and national employment, sales, value-added, and income impacts. Economic data are required to support more than a cursory effort to comply with or support the following laws, EOs, and NOAA Fisheries strategies and policies: 1.

This cycle of data collection will facilitate economic data being available and updated for all those commercial fisheries. There will be an effort to coordinate the data collections in order to reduce the additional burden for those who participate in multiple fisheries. To further reduce the burden, the requested information for a specific fishery will be limited to that which is not available from other sources. Participation in these data collections will be voluntary. The proposed revisions to the information collection will: (a) Change the title of the currently approved information collection from ‘‘West Coast Limited Entry Groundfish Fixed Gear Economic Data Collection’’ to ‘‘Economic Surveys of Specific U.S. Commercial Fisheries’’; (b) expand it to include an additional 14 fisheries, for which information had been collected under other previously approved information collections; (c) extend it for three years; and (d) increase the burden hours to the sum of the burden hours for the 15 information collections. II. Method of Collection The information will be collected by mail, internet, phone, and in-person interviews. In general, respondents will receive a mailed copy of the survey instrument in advance of a phone or inperson interview. Where feasible, survey respondents will have the option to respond to an on-line survey.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On September 20, 2019, the Secretary of Commerce (Secretary) received a ‘‘Notice of Appeal’’ filed by WesternGeco pursuant to the Coastal Zone Management Act of 1972 (CZMA), 16 U.S.C. 1451 et seq., and implementing regulations found at 15 CFR part 930, subpart H. The ‘‘Notice of Appeal’’ is taken from an objection by the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control to a consistency certification for a proposed SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 20475 project to conduct a marine Geological and Geophysical seismic survey in the Atlantic Ocean. This matter constitutes an appeal of an ‘‘energy project’’ within the meaning of the CZMA regulations, see 15 CFR 930.123(c). Under the CZMA, the Secretary may override South Carolina’s objection on grounds that the project is consistent with the objectives or purposes of the CZMA, or is necessary in the interest of national security. To make the determination that the proposed activity is ‘‘consistent with the objectives or purposes of the CZMA,’’ the Department must find that: (1) The proposed activity furthers the national interest as articulated in sections 302 or 303 of the CZMA, in a significant or substantial manner; (2) the national interest furthered by the proposed activity outweighs the activity’s adverse coastal effects, when those effects are considered separately or cumulatively; and (3) no reasonable alternative is available that would permit the proposed activity to be conducted in a manner consistent with the enforceable policies of the applicable coastal management program. 15 CFR 930.121. To make the determination that the proposed activity is ‘‘necessary in the interest of national security,’’ the Secretary must find that a national defense or other national security interest would be significantly impaired if the proposed activity is not permitted to go forward as proposed. 15 CFR 930.122. The Secretary must close the decision record in a federal consistency appeal 160 days after the Notice of Appeal is published in the Federal Register. 15 CFR 930.130(a)(1). However, the CZMA authorizes the Secretary to stay closing the decision record for up to 60 days when the Secretary determines it necessary to receive, on an expedited basis, any supplemental information specifically requested by the Secretary to complete a consistency review or any clarifying information submitted by a party to the proceeding related to information in the consolidated record compiled by the lead Federal permitting agency. 15 CFR 930.130(a)(2), (3). After reviewing the decision record developed to date, the Secretary has decided to solicit supplemental and clarifying information from the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management pertaining to the withholding of certain information as proprietary. In order to allow receipt of this information, the Secretary hereby stays closure of the decision record, currently scheduled to occur on April 13, 2020, until April 27, 2020.

    A variety of laws, Executive Orders (EOs), and NOAA Fisheries 
strategies and policies include requirements for economic data and the 
analyses they support. When met adequately, those requirements allow 
better-informed conservation and management decisions on the use of 
living marine resources and marine habitat in federally managed 
fisheries. Obtaining these data improves the ability of NOAA Fisheries 
and the Regional Fishery Management Councils (Councils) to monitor, 
explain and predict changes in the economic performance and impacts of 
federally managed commercial fisheries. Measures of economic 
performance include costs, earnings, and profitability (net revenue); 
productivity and economic efficiency; capacity; economic stability; the 
level and distribution of net economic benefits to society; and market 
power. The economic impacts include sector, community or region-
specific, and national employment, sales, value-added, and income 
impacts. Economic data are required to support more than a cursory 
effort to comply with or support the following laws, EOs, and NOAA 
Fisheries strategies and policies:

14. NOAA's Catch Share Policy.

    Data collections will focus each year on a different set of the 15 
commercial fisheries. This cycle of data collection will facilitate 
economic data being available and updated for all those commercial 
fisheries.
    There will be an effort to coordinate the data collections in order 
to reduce the additional burden for those who participate in multiple 
fisheries. To further reduce the burden, the requested information for 
a specific fishery will be limited to that which is not available from 
other sources. Participation in these data collections will be 
voluntary.
    The proposed revisions to the information collection will: (a) 
Change the title of the currently approved information collection from 
``West Coast Limited Entry Groundfish Fixed Gear Economic Data 
Collection'' to ``Economic Surveys of Specific U.S. Commercial 
Fisheries''; (b) expand it to include an additional 14 fisheries, for 
which information had been collected under other previously approved 
information collections; (c) extend it for three years; and (d) 
increase the burden hours to the sum of the burden hours for the 15 
information collections.

II. Method of Collection

    The information will be collected by mail, internet, phone, and in-
person interviews. In general, respondents will receive a mailed copy 
of the survey instrument in advance of a phone or in-person interview. 
Where feasible, survey respondents will have the option to respond to 
an on-line survey. If phone and in-person interviews are not feasible 
or not desired by the potential respondents, the information will be 
collected by mail or internet.
