Abstract This is a request for revision and extension of a currently approved information collection. The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Office of Science and Technology’s Economics and Social Analysis Division seeks to conduct asneeded data collections to support mandated comprehensive economic and socio-economic evaluations of the fisheries in regions of the United States affected by catastrophic events. The six NMFS Fisheries Science Centers will assist in conducting the proposed collections. The Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (MSA) includes the following requirement (see SEC. 315 (c)), ‘‘Within 2 months after a catastrophic regional fishery disaster the Secretary [of Commerce] shall provide the Governor of each State participating in the program a comprehensive economic and socio-economic evaluation of the affected region’s fisheries to assist the Governor in assessing the current and future economic viability of affected fisheries, including the economic impact of foreign fish imports and the direct, indirect, or environmental impact of the disaster on the fishery and coastal communities.’’ The MSA permits the proposed collection and NMFS would conduct it under the MSA. This collection will provide information that NMFS will use to produce the comprehensive economic and socio-economic evaluation required by the MSA. For a rapid catastrophic event, such as a hurricane, NMFS seeks to collect data on the immediate and long-term disruption and impediments to recovery of normal business practices to the commercial and recreational fishing industries, including fishing dependent businesses. In addition, for an ongoing event, such as a pandemic or red tide that lingers for many months in the same region(s), NMFS seeks to collect data quarterly to semi-annually as needed to evaluate the ongoing event. NMFS would collect the data from E:\FR\FM\02MRN1.SGM 02MRN1

Scope of the Orders

    The scope of these orders is circular welded carbon and alloy steel 
(other than stainless steel) pipe of a kind used for oil or gas 
pipelines (welded line pipe), not more than 24 inches in nominal 
outside diameter, regardless of wall thickness, length, surface finish, 
end finish, or stenciling. Welded line pipe is normally produced to the 
American Petroleum Institute (API) specification 5L, but can be 
produced to comparable foreign specifications, to proprietary grades, 
or can be non-graded material. All pipe meeting the physical 
description set forth above, including multiple-stenciled pipe with an 
API or comparable foreign specification line pipe stencil is covered by 
the scope of these orders.
    The welded line pipe that is subject to these orders is currently 
classifiable in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States 
(HTSUS) under subheadings 7305.11.1030, 7305.11.5000, 7305.12.1030, 
7305.12.5000, 7305.19.1030, 7305.19.5000, 7306.19.1010, 7306.19.1050, 
7306.19.5110, and 7306.19.5150. The subject merchandise may also enter 
in HTSUS 7305.11.1060 and 7305.12.1060. While the HTSUS subheadings are 
provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description 
of the scope of these orders is dispositive.

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in these sunset reviews are addressed in the 
Issues and Decision Memorandum.\6\ The issues discussed in the Issues 
and Decision Memorandum are the likelihood of continuation or 
recurrence of dumping and the magnitude of the dumping margins likely 
to prevail if the orders were revoked. The Issues and Decision 
Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically via 
Enforcement and Compliance's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS). ACCESS is available to

Final Results of Reviews

    Pursuant to sections 751(c)(1) and 752(c)(1) and (3) of the Act,
