Gray's Reef National Marine Sanctuary Regulations and Management Plan
Document Number: 2013-29290
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-12-10
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
NOAA is proposing to update the regulations and management plan for Gray's Reef National Marine Sanctuary (GRNMS or Sanctuary).

A draft environmental assessment has been prepared that includes analysis of the consequences of this proposed action. A draft management plan outlining management priorities for GRNMS for the next 5-10 years has also been prepared. NOAA is soliciting public comment on the proposed rule, draft environmental assessment, and draft management plan.

Endangered Fish and Wildlife; Final Rule To Remove the Sunset Provision of the Final Rule Implementing Vessel Speed Restrictions To Reduce the Threat of Ship Collisions With North Atlantic Right Whales
Document Number: 2013-29355
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-12-09
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
NMFS is eliminating the expiration date (or ``sunset clause'') contained in regulations requiring vessel speed restrictions to reduce the likelihood of lethal vessel collisions with North Atlantic right whales. The regulations restrict vessel speeds to no more than 10 knots for vessels 65 ft (19.8 m) or greater in overall length in certain locations and at certain times of the year along the east coast of the U.S. Atlantic seaboard. The purpose of the regulation is to reduce the likelihood of deaths and serious injuries to endangered North Atlantic right whales that result from collisions with ships. The speed regulations will expire December 9, 2013, unless the sunset clause is removed. With this final rule, NMFS is removing the rule's sunset provision. All other aspects of the rule remain in place until circumstances warrant further changes to the rule.

On October 3, 2013, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published the preliminary results of an administrative review of the suspension agreement on certain cut-to-length carbon steel plate from the Russian Federation covering Joint Stock Company Severstal (Severstal).

Glycine From the People's Republic of China: Final Rescission of Antidumping Duty New Shipper Review; 2012
Document Number: 2013-29337
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-12-09
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
On August 23, 2013, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published its Preliminary Rescission for the new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on glycine from the People's Republic of China (PRC) covering the period of review March 1, 2012, through August 31, 2012, for Hebei Donghua Jiheng Fine Chemical Company, Ltd. (Donghua Fine Chemical).\1\ For these final results, we continue to find that, because Donghua Fine Chemical appears to be affiliated with PRC-companies that have had prior shipments of subject merchandise to the United States, it has therefore failed to certify to its first U.S. entry, U.S. shipment, and U.S. sale, as required under 19 CFR 351.214(b)(2)(iv)(A) and (C). We also continue to find that Donghua Fine Chemical failed to report its first U.S. entry and/or U.S. shipment within one year of its request for a new shipper review, thus failing to satisfy the deadline requirements of 19 CFR 351.214(c). Because Donghua Fine Chemical's request did not satisfy the regulatory requirements for a new shipper review, we are rescinding the new shipper for Donghua Fine Chemical.
Frontseating Service Valves From the People's Republic of China; Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2011-2012

The review covers two exporters of subject merchandise, Zhejiang DunAn Hetian Metal Co., Ltd. (``DunAn'') and Zhejiang Sanhua Co., Ltd. (``Sanhua''). The Department continues to find that DunAn did not have reviewable entries during the POR. Additionally, we find that Sanhua made sales in the United States at prices below normal value (``NV''). Based on our analysis of the comments received, we have made changes to our margin calculations for Sanhua. The final weighted-average dumping margin for this review is listed below in the section entitled ``Final Results of the Review.''

Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) publishes its proposed List of Fisheries (LOF) for 2014, as required by the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA). The proposed LOF for 2014 reflects new information on interactions between commercial fisheries and marine mammals. NMFS must classify each commercial fishery on the LOF into one of three categories under the MMPA based upon the level of mortality and serious injury of marine mammals that occurs incidental to each fishery. The classification of a fishery on the LOF determines whether participants in that fishery are subject to certain provisions of the MMPA, such as registration, observer coverage, and take reduction plan (TRP) requirements. The fishery classifications and list of marine mammal stocks incidentally injured or killed described on the Final LOF for 2013 remain in effect until the effective date of the Final LOF for 2014.
