Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
The Department of Commerce (Department) is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain helical spring lock washers (HSLW) from the People's Republic of China (PRC). The period of review (POR) is October 1, 2012, through September 30, 2013. This review covers three exporters of subject merchandise, Jiangsu RC Import & Export Co., Ltd. (Jiangsu RC), Suzhou Guoxin Group Wang Shun Imp. and Exp. Co., Ltd. (Guoxin), and Winnsen Industry Co., Ltd. (Winnsen). We preliminarily determine that Jiangsu RC made sales of subject merchandise to the United States at prices below normal value (NV). Guoxin ceased participating in this review, and, thus, we preliminarily determine it is not eligible for a separate rate and it remains part of the PRC-wide entity. In addition, we are not rescinding the review with respect to Winnsen (see ``Intent Not to Rescind in Part,'' infra). Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results.

Fisheries of the Exclusive Economic Zone Off Alaska; Amendment 96 to the Gulf of Alaska Fishery Management Plan; Management of Community Quota Entities
Document Number: 2014-26466
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-11-07
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
NMFS publishes regulations to implement Amendment 96 to the Fishery Management Plan for Groundfish of the Gulf of Alaska (FMP) and an amendment to the Pacific halibut commercial fishery regulations for waters in and off Alaska. Amendment 96 to the FMP and the regulatory amendment modify the Individual Fishing Quota Program for the Fixed- Gear Commercial Fisheries for Pacific Halibut and Sablefish in Waters in and off Alaska (IFQ Program). This action will remove a regulation that prohibits a Gulf of Alaska (GOA) Community Quota Entity (CQE) from transferring and holding small blocks of halibut and sablefish quota share (QS). This action will allow CQEs to acquire additional QS and facilitate CQE community resident participation in the IFQ Program. This action promotes the goals and objectives of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, the Northern Pacific Halibut Act of 1982, the FMP, and other applicable law.
