Document Number: 2014-18950
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-08-11
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
The Department of Commerce (the Department) completed the administrative review of the countervailing duty (CVD) order on cut- to-length carbon-quality steel plate (CTL Plate) from the Republic of Korea for the January 1, 2012, through December 31, 2012, period of review (POR) in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). This review covers multiple exporters/ producers, one of which is being individually examined as a mandatory respondent. We determine that Dongkuk Steel Mill Co., Ltd. (DSM) received a de minimis net subsidy rate during the POR. We have used DSM's total net subsidy rate as the rate for the remaining five companies subject to review. Additionally, the Department has rescinded the review of five companies that timely certified that they had no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. Our analysis of comments received is contained in the Decision Memorandum accompanying this Federal Register notice.\1\ The final net subsidy rates are listed below in the ``Final Results of Review'' section. These subsidy rates are unchanged from the Preliminary Results.\2\

Type: Rule
Date: 2014-08-11
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
NMFS announces that the 2014 Trimester 2 longfin squid fishery is closed. Vessels issued a commercial Federal moratorium longfin squid permit may not possess or land more than an incidental amount of longfin squid for the remainder of Trimester 2. This action is necessary to prevent the fishery from exceeding its Trimester 2 quota and to allow for effective management of the stock. Regulations governing the longfin squid fishery require publication of this notification to advise permit holders that the fishery is closed.
Genome in a Bottle Consortium-Progress and Planning Workshop
Document Number: 2014-18841
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-08-11
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Institute of Standards and Technology
NIST announces the Genome in a Bottle Consortium meeting to be held on Thursday and Friday, August 14 and 15, 2014. The Genome in a Bottle Consortium is developing the reference materials, reference methods, and reference data needed to assess confidence in human whole genome variant calls. A principal motivation for this consortium is to enable performance assessment of sequencing and science-based regulatory oversight of clinical sequencing. The purpose of this meeting is to update participants about progress of the consortium work, continue to get broad input from individual stakeholders to update or refine the consortium work plan, continue to broadly solicit consortium membership from interested stakeholders, and invite members to participate in work plan implementation. Topics of discussion at this meeting will include examples of laboratories using the pilot candidate NIST Reference Material, progress on the next set of NIST Reference Materials, structural variants, and potential Reference Materials for cancer genomics.
Fisheries of the Exclusive Economic Zone Off Alaska; Gulf of Alaska Trawl Economic Data Report
Document Number: 2014-18675
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-08-11
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
NMFS proposes to implement the Gulf of Alaska (GOA) Trawl Economic Data Report Program to evaluate the economic effects of current and anticipated future fishery management measures for the GOA trawl fisheries. This data collection program is necessary to provide the North Pacific Fishery Management Council (Council) and NMFS with baseline economic information on harvesters, crew, processors, and communities active in the GOA trawl fisheries, which could be used to assess the impacts of anticipated future fishery management measures on GOA trawl groundfish management. The data collected for this program would be submitted by vessel owners and leaseholders of GOA trawl vessels, processors receiving deliveries from those trawl vessels, and trawl catcher/processors. The types of data collected would include, but not be limited to, labor information, revenues, capital and operational expenses, and other operational or financial data. This action is intended to promote the goals and objectives of the Magnuson- Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (Magnuson-Stevens Act), the GOA Fishery Management Plan, and other applicable laws.
