Interested parties can find a list of antidumping duty orders currently in effect at https://enforcement.trade.gov/ stats/iastats1.html. These antidumping duty orders are published in accordance with section 736(a) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.211(b). Dated: November 30, 2021. Ryan Majerus, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Policy and Negotiations, performing the non-exclusive functions and duties of the Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance. Appendix Scope of the Orders The merchandise covered by these orders consists of certain wind towers, whether or not tapered, and sections thereof. Certain wind towers support the nacelle and rotor blades in a wind turbine with a minimum rated electrical power generation capacity in excess of 100 kilowatts and with a minimum height of 50 meters measured from the base of the tower to the bottom of the nacelle (i.e., where the top of the tower and nacelle are joined) when fully assembled. A wind tower section consists of, at a minimum, multiple steel plates rolled into cylindrical or conical shapes and welded together (or otherwise attached) to form a steel shell, regardless of coating, end-finish, painting, treatment, or method of manufacture, and with or without flanges, doors, or internal or external components (e.g., flooring/decking, ladders, lifts, electrical buss boxes, electrical cabling, conduit, cable harness for nacelle generator, interior lighting, tool and storage lockers) attached to the wind tower section. Several wind tower sections are normally required to form a completed wind tower. Wind towers and sections thereof are included within the scope whether or not they are joined with non-subject merchandise, such as nacelles or rotor blades, and whether or not they have internal or external components attached to the subject merchandise. Specifically excluded from the scope are nacelles and rotor blades, regardless of whether they are attached to the wind tower. Also excluded are any internal or external components which are not attached to the wind towers or sections thereof, unless those components are shipped with the tower sections. Merchandise covered by these orders is currently classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) under subheading 7308.20.0020 or 8502.31.0000. Wind towers of iron or steel are classified under HTSUS 7308.20.0020 when imported separately as a tower or tower section(s). Wind towers may be classified under HTSUS 8502.31.0000 when imported as combination goods with a wind turbine (i.e., accompanying nacelles and/or rotor blades). While the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of these orders is dispositive.

Abstract This request is for a new information collection. The Office of Science and Technology is sponsoring this collection. Economic surveys will be conducted for the commercial and charter fishing sectors of federally managed fisheries of the United States. The requested information will include different components of operating costs/expenditures, earnings, employment, ownership, vessel characteristics, effort/gear descriptors, employment, and demographic information. The information will be collected from the owners and operators of fishing vessels that participated in the commercial and/or charter fishing sectors, where the vessels that participated in the charter sector include guide boats, 6-pack boats, charter boats, commercial passenger fishing vessels, and party/head boats. A variety of laws, Executive Orders (E.O.s), 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 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, valueadded, and income impacts. Economic data are required to support more than a cursory effort to comply with or support the following laws, E.O.s, and NOAA Fisheries strategies and policies: 1. The Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (MSA) 2. The Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA) 3. The Endangered Species Act (ESA) 4. The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) 5. The Regulatory Flexibility Act (RFA) 6. E.O. 12866 (Regulatory Planning and Review) E:\FR\FM\06DEN1.SGM 06DEN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    NOAA's Southwest Fisheries Science Center (SWFSC) is sponsoring a 
new information collection under the Endangered Species Act for the 
purpose of collecting data on West Coast Sea turtle sightings from 
members of the public. The data collected would include date of the 
sighting, time of the sighting, sea turtle species (if known), 
behavior, estimated size, geographic location, photos (if taken), and 
the public respondent's email address (used to ask follow-up questions 
if necessary). This information would be used by the SWFSC's Marine 
Turtle Ecology & Assessment Program to monitor the

distribution and timing of sea turtle occurrence along the U.S. West 
Coast, which will accordingly support its mission to conserve and 
protect threatened and endangered sea turtle populations. In the 
future, the SWFSC plans to merge this collection with a broader 
information collection that will encompass all NOAA Citizen Science 
projects.

II. Method of Collection

    Sea turtle sightings information would be collected on an 
opportunistic and voluntary basis via a fillable questionnaire posted 
on the SWFSC's website. A QR code will be printed on multiple NOAA sea 
turtle outreach materials (e.g., brochures) to direct the public to 
this website. In the future, the SWFSC may expand data collection to 
the iNaturalist mobile application.
