Document Number: 2016-18779
Type: Notice
Date: 2016-08-08
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
The Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting a new shipper review (NSR) of the antidumping duty order on certain preserved mushrooms from the People's Republic of China (PRC). The NSR covers merchandise exported by Linyi Yuqiao International Trade Co., Ltd. (Yuqiao) and produced by Linyi City Kangfa Drinkable Co., Ltd. The period of review (POR) is February 1, 2015 through July 31, 2015. The Department preliminarily determines that Yuqiao did not make a bona fide sale during the POR. Because any weighted average dumping margin must be based solely on bona fide sales, we are preliminarily rescinding this NSR. Interested parties are invited to comment on the preliminary results of this review.

This closure is necessary to protect the lesser amberjack, almaco jack, and banded rudderfish resources.
Amendment to the Export Administration Regulations To Add Targets for the Production of Tritium and Related Development and Production Technology to the List of 0Y521 Series
Document Number: 2016-18070
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-08-08
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security
In this interim final rule, the Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) amends the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) to make certain items subject to the EAR and to impose on those items a license requirement for export and reexport to all destinations, except Canada. Specifically, this rule classifies certain specified targets ``specially designed'' for the production of tritium and related ``development'' and ``production'' technology under Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCNs) 0A521 and 0E521, respectively, on the Commerce Control List (CCL). As described in the final rule that established the 0Y521 series and that was published in the Federal Register on April 13, 2012, items are added to the 0Y521 series upon a determination by the Department of Commerce, with the concurrence of the Departments of Defense and State, and other agencies as appropriate, that the items should be controlled for export because the items provide at least a significant military or intelligence advantage to the United States or foreign policy reasons justify control. In this matter, the Department of Energy also concurred in the control imposed. The items identified in this rule are controlled for regional stability (RS) Column 1 reasons. The only license exception available for these items is for exports, reexports, and transfers (in-country) made by or consigned to a department or agency of the U.S. Government.
