Consistent with its recent notice,13 Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP no earlier than 35 days after the date of publication of the final results of this review in the Federal Register. If a timely summons is filed at the U.S. Court of International Trade, the assessment instructions will direct CBP not to liquidate relevant entries until the time for parties to file a request for a statutory injunction has expired (i.e., within 90 days of publication).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES Background On September 10, 2014, we, NMFS, listed 15 Indo-Pacific coral species as threatened under the Endangered Species Act (ESA)(79 FR 53851; September 10, 2014). The 15 listed species are Acropora globiceps, Acropora jacquelineae, Acropora lokani, Acropora pharaonis, Acropora retusa, Acropora rudis, Acropora speciosa, Acropora tenella, Anacropora spinosa, Euphyllia paradivisa, Isopora crateriformis, Montipora australiensis, Pavona diffluens, Porites napopora, and Seriatopora aculeata. The final listing rule describes the background of the listing action for these species and provides a summary of our conclusions regarding their status. For additional background and information about these species, the reader is referred to our species web pages (available at https:// www.fisheries.noaa.gov/corals#byspecies). NMFS is required by section 4(f) of the ESA to develop and implement recovery plans for the conservation and survival of federally listed species unless the Secretary finds that such a plan will not promote the conservation of the species. Recovery means that listed species and their ecosystems are restored, and their future secured, so that the protections of the ESA are no longer necessary. The ESA specifies that recovery plans are to include (1) a description of site-specific management actions necessary to achieve the plan’s goals for the conservation and survival of the species; (2) objective, measurable criteria which, when met, would result in the species being removed from the list; and (3) estimates of the time and costs required to carry out the actions and achieve the plan’s conservation goals. Under section 4(f) of the ESA, public notice and an opportunity for public review and comment are also provided during recovery plan development. This notice serves as the first public notice and opportunity for public input early in the process. Once a recovery plan has been drafted, it will be announced in the Federal Register and available on our website (see ADDRESSES section) for public review and comment before being finalized.

We are inviting experts and stakeholders in specific topic areas, including the species’ biology/ecology, threats to the species and the species’ habitat, the recovery planning process itself, and coral and coral reef conservation and management. These experts and stakeholders will help us to identify potential actions to address the threats to the species, identify gaps in knowledge and associated research needs, as well as begin developing recovery criteria for the species. Identified experts and stakeholders include representatives of Federal and state agencies, scientific experts, and individuals from conservation partners and nongovernmental organizations. NMFS will provide a moderator to manage the workshop as well as note takers to document input received. We are seeking facts and information; we will not be asking for consensus recommendations on how to recover these 15 coral species. NMFS will prepare a summary of the workshop, noting the main points raised by the participants.

the conservation and survival of the species; (2) objective, measurable 
criteria which, when met, would result in the species being removed 
from the list; and (3) estimates of the time and costs required to 
carry out the actions and achieve the plan's conservation goals. Under 
section 4(f) of the ESA, public notice and an opportunity for public 
review and comment are also provided during recovery plan development.
