Document Number: E9-24223
Type: Notice
Date: 2009-10-07
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(b)(2), Zhucheng Taisheng Chemcial Co., Ltd. (``Zhucheng Taisheng''), submitted a timely request for an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on chlorinated isocyanurates from the People's Republic of China (``PRC'') purporting to be a producer and exporter of subject merchandise. We initiated this review on July 29, 2009. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 74 FR 37690 (July 29, 2009) (``Initiation Notice''). In a letter dated August 24, 2009, Zhucheng Taisheng explained that, in the process of preparing the section A questionnaire response for this review, it discovered that the actual producer and exporter of the subject merchandise was Zhucheng Taisheng Angmu Chemical Co., Ltd. (``Zhucheng Taisheng Angmu''), with whom Zhucheng Taisheng claims to be affiliated.\1\ Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(b)(2), only a producer or an exporter of the subject merchandise may request an administrative review. Because Zhucheng Taisheng is not an exporter or producer of subject merchandise, we intend to rescind the administrative review for Zhucheng Taisheng.
Fisheries of the Exclusive Economic Zone Off Alaska, Groundfish Observer Program; Correction
Document Number: E9-24221
Type: Rule
Date: 2009-10-07
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
This action makes four corrections to regulations. It corrects a final rule removing the December 31, 2007, expiration date for regulations governing the North Pacific Observer Program. NMFS intended this final rule to remove the expiration date from all paragraphs, however, due to the overlay of an additional and overlooked expiration date in a different final rule, NMFS inadvertently removed the regulations governing observer coverage for catcher/processors and motherships participating in the pollock fisheries in the Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands management area. This correcting amendment reinstates those observer coverage requirements. In addition, this rule corrects a cross-reference error; removes an expiration date; and removes effective dates that have now passed from certain paragraphs.
Fisheries of the Exclusive Economic Zone Off Alaska; Western Alaska Community Development Quota Program, Rockfish Program, Amendment 80 Program; Bering Sea and Aleutian Islands Area Crab Rationalization Program
Document Number: E9-24217
Type: Rule
Date: 2009-10-07
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
NMFS issues regulations to provide harvesting cooperatives, crab processing quota share holders, and Western Alaska Community Development Quota (CDQ) groups with the option to make intercooperative transfers, crab individual processing quota transfers, and inter-group transfers through an automated, web-based process. To facilitate web- based transfers, NMFS removes the requirement for notarized signatures for all crab non-permanent leases of individual fishing quota and individual processor quota and removes unnecessary quota share price- related questions. The purpose of this action is to reduce paperwork burdens on the fishing industry by providing the option of electronic transfer through the Internet. This action allows cooperatives, processors, and CDQ groups to shorten response time to management, market, weather, and other fishery and operational conditions and to increase harvesting and processing efficiency. This action also removes detailed description of information required on application forms from regulatory text; removes detailed NMFS mail, fax, and delivery
Certain Lined Paper Products From India: Notice of Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review

Type: Notice
Date: 2009-10-07
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
The Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain lined paper products (CLPP) from India. For the period September 1, 2007, through August 31, 2008, we have preliminarily determined that U.S. sales have been made below normal value (NV) by Navneet Publications (India) Limited (Navneet) and Blue Bird India Ltd. (Blue Bird). Because Blue Bird is a selected mandatory respondent and was not responsive to the Department's requests for information, we have preliminarily assigned to Blue Bird a margin based on adverse facts available (AFA). If these preliminary results are adopted in our final results, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties based on the difference between the export price (EP) and NV. See ``Preliminary Results of Review'' section of this notice. Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results.

Temporary Suspension of the Population Estimates and Income Estimates Challenge Programs
Document Number: E9-24164
Type: Proposed Rule

Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of the Census, Census Bureau
This document provides notice to state and local governments and to federal agencies that, beginning on January 1, 2010, the Bureau of the Census (Census Bureau) proposes to temporarily suspend the Population Estimates Challenge Program and to indefinitely suspend the Per Capita Income Estimates Challenge Program (also known as Procedure for Challenging Certain Population and Income Estimates) during the decennial census year and the year following it to accommodate the taking of the 2010 Census. During this time, the Census Bureau would not provide the operations necessary to review the July 1, 2009, population or per capita income estimates for state, and other general- purpose governments, such as cities, towns, and villages. The Population Estimates Challenge Program is expected to resume in 2012 as the program begins operations based upon the results of the 2010 Census.

Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
The Department is conducting an administrative review of this Order, covering the period of review (``POR'') of June 1, 2007, - May 31, 2008.
