Commerce will grant the request unless it finds compelling reasons to deny the request. On November 5, 2020, the petitioner 2 submitted a timely request that Commerce postpone the preliminary determination in this LTFV investigation.3 The petitioner stated that it requests postponement to provide adequate time for Commerce to analyze complex issues, to accommodate extensions of time provided to the respondent to complete the questionnaire and supplemental questionnaires, and to provide Commerce additional time to conduct a thorough analysis, including by issuing additional supplemental questionnaires.4 For the reasons stated above and because there are no compelling reasons to deny the request, Commerce, in accordance with section 733(c)(1)(A) of the Act, is postponing the deadline for the preliminary determination by 50 days (i.e., 190 days after the date on which this investigation was initiated). As a result, Commerce will issue its preliminary determination no later than January 26, 2021. In accordance with section 735(a)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(1), the deadline for the final determination in this investigation will continue to be 75 days after the date of the preliminary determination, unless postponed at a later date. This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 733(c)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(f)(1). Dated: November 12, 2020. Jeffrey I.

Type of Request: Regular submission (extension of a current information collection). Number of Respondents: 30. Average Hours per Response: Annual Trawl Catcher/Processor Economic Data Report, 22 hours. Total Annual Burden Hours: 660 hours. Needs and Uses: The National Marine Fisheries Services (NMFS), Alaska Regional Office, is requesting extension of the currently approved information collection for the Annual Trawl Catcher/Processor Economic Data Report (the EDR). The EDR collects economic data on the information for the Gulf of Alaska Trawl Groundfish Economic Data Report Program (GOA Trawl EDR Program) and for Amendment 80 to the Fishery Management Plan for Groundfish of the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Management Area. The GOA Trawl EDR Program evaluates the economic effects of current and potential future fishery management measures for the GOA trawl fisheries. This program provides NMFS and the North Pacific Fishery PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Management Council (Council) with baseline economic information on affected harvesters, crew, processors, and communities in the GOA. Amendment 80 primarily allocates several Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands non-pollock trawl groundfish fisheries among fishing sectors, and facilitates the formation of harvesting cooperatives among vessels in the non-American Fisheries Act (non-AFA) Trawl Catcher/ Processor Cooperative Program. This program established a limited access privilege program for the non-AFA trawl catcher/processor sector. Data collected through the EDR includes labor information, revenues received, capital and operational expenses, and other operational or financial data. NMFS and the Council use this to assess the economic effects of Amendment 80 on vessels or entities regulated by the non-AFA Trawl Catcher/Processor Cooperative Program, and impacts of major changes in the groundfish management regime, including allocation of prohibited species catch species and target species to harvesting cooperatives. The EDR is submitted annually by each person who held an Amendment 80 Quota Share permit or was an owner or leaseholder of an Amendment 80 vessel, or was an owner or leaseholder of a vessel named on a License Limitation Program groundfish license with catcher/processor vessel and trawl gear designations and endorsed for the GOA during a calendar year. The EDR requirements are located at 50 CFR 679.94. Affected Public: Individuals or households; Business or other for-profit organizations. Frequency: Annually. Respondent’s Obligation: Mandatory.

Total Annual Burden Hours: 20,260. Needs and Uses: This collection serves as a family of forms for Atlantic highly migratory species (HMS) dealer reporting, including purchases of HMS from domestic fishermen, and the import, export, and/or re-export of HMS, including federally managed tunas, sharks, and swordfish. Transactions covered under this collection include purchases of Atlantic HMS from domestic fishermen; and the import/export of all bluefin tuna, frozen bigeye tuna, southern bluefin tuna or swordfish under the HMS International Trade Program, regardless of geographic area of origin. This information is used to monitor the harvest of domestic fisheries, and/or track international trade of internationally managed species. We are currently revising this information collection to implement mandatory electronic, web-based reporting to replace the downloadable hard copy forms currently used for biweekly bluefin dealer reporting and international trade reporting of bluefin tuna, swordfish, and frozen bigeye tuna. No other changes in the reporting program are being implemented at this time, and no significant changes in the number of responses or burden estimates are anticipated aside from removal of postage costs for returning the completed forms by mail. The domestic dealer reporting covered by this collection includes weekly electronic landing reports and negative reports (i.e., reports of no activity) of Atlantic swordfish, sharks, bigeye tuna, albacore, yellowfin, and skipjack tunas (collectively referred to as BAYS tunas), and electronic biweekly and daily landing reports for bluefin tuna, including tagging of individual fish. Because of the individual bluefin quota (IBQ) management system (RIN 0648–BC09), electronic entry of IBQrelated landing data is required for Atlantic bluefin tuna purchased from Longline and Purse seine category vessels. International trade tracking programs are required by both the International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT) and the InterAmerican Tropical Tuna Commission (IATTC) to account for all international trade of covered species. The United PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 73461 States is a member of ICCAT and IATTC and required by ATCA and the Tunas Convention Act (16 U.S.C. 951 et. seq., consecutively) to promulgate regulations as necessary and appropriate to implement ICCAT and IATTC recommendations. These programs require that a statistical document or catch document accompany each export from and import to a member nation, and that a re-export certificate accompany each re-export. The international trade reporting requirements covered by this collection include implementation of catch document, statistical document, and reexport certificate trade tracking programs for bluefin tuna, frozen bigeye tuna, and swordfish. An electronic catch document program for bluefin tuna (EBCD) was recommended by ICCAT and implemented by the United States in 2016 (0648–BF17). United States regulations implementing ICCAT statistical document and catch document programs require statistical documents and catch documents for international transactions of the covered species from all ocean areas, so Pacific imports and exports must also be accompanied by statistical documents and catch documents. Since there are statistical document programs in place under other international conventions (e.g., the Indian Ocean Tuna Commission), a statistical document or catch document from another program may be used to satisfy the statistical document requirement for imports into the United States. Dealers who internationally trade Southern bluefin tuna are required to participate in a trade tracking program to ensure that imported Atlantic and Pacific bluefin tuna will not be intentionally mislabeled as ‘‘southern bluefin’’ to circumvent reporting requirements. This action is authorized under ATCA, which provides for the promulgation of regulations as may be necessary and appropriate to carry out ICCAT recommendations. In addition to statistical document, catch document, and re-export certificate requirements, this collection includes biweekly reports to complement trade tracking statistical documents by summarizing statistical document data and collecting additional economic information. Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit organizations. Frequency: Daily for bluefin tuna landings reports and tagging, weekly for HMS dealer reports, biweekly for bluefin tuna dealer and international trade reports, and annually for nongovernmental catch document/statistical document/re-export certificate E:\FR\FM\18NON1.SGM 18NON1
