to challenge the Final Determination,
pursuant to NAFTA Article
1904(15)(c)(ii), the deadline for the
submission of a Notice of Intent to
Commence Judicial Review was
February 19, 2020 (within 20 days of
publication of the Final Determination
in the Federal Register), and pursuant
to NAFTA Article 1904(4), the deadline
for the submission of a Request for
Panel Review was March 2, 2020
(within 30 days of publication of the
Final Determination in the Federal
Register).
On February 19, 2020, the Full
Member Subgroup of the American
Institute of Steel Construction, LLC
(‘‘AISC’’) and Building Systems de
Mexico, S.A. de C.V. (‘‘BSM’’) filed
Notices of Intent to Commence Judicial
Review at the United States Court of
International Trade.
On February 28, 2020, Corey S.A. de
C. V. (‘‘Corey’’) solely filed a Request for
Panel Review.
On November 3, 2020, in Building
Systems de Mexico, S.A. de C.V. v.
United States, 476 F.Supp.3d 1401,
1409 (CIT, 2020), the Court of
International Trade held that ‘‘Corey
does not have standing, as required in
order for it to properly request review of
Commerce’s final determination before a
NAFTA binational panel.... NAFTA
art. 1904(5) requires a private party to
have standing, as determined by the
laws of the importing country, in order
to request a binational panel.’’
The Court of International Trade
further held that ‘‘it has jurisdiction
over this proceeding because the
requirements to request a binational
panel, and divest this court of
jurisdiction, have not been met.’’ Id. at
1405. See also, Full Member Subgroup
of American Institute of Steel
Construction, LLC v. United States, 477
F.Supp.3d 1349 (CIT, 2020).
Accordingly, there are no further
proceedings for binational panel review
in Certain Fabricated Structural Steel
from Mexico AD (USA–MEX–2020–
1904–01).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
: The
subject permit is requested under the
authority of the Marine Mammal
Protection Act of 1972, as amended
(MMPA; 16 U.S.C. 1361 et seq.), the
regulations governing the taking and
importing of marine mammals (50 CFR
part 216), and the Fur Seal Act of 1966,
as amended (16 U.S.C. 1151 et seq.).
The Aleut Community of St. Paul
Island proposes to conduct research on
northern fur seals to fulfill their
responsibilities as established under the
co-management agreements between
NMFS and the Aleut Communities on
St. Paul Island, Alaska. All activities are
organized into five projects: (1)
Assessing and monitoring the marine
mammal population; (2) Assessing
disturbance using VHF; (3) Assessing
habitat use; (4) Salvage of parts for a
biosampling program; and (5) Studying
entanglement rates of northern fur seals.
The applicant requests to take up to 600
northern fur seals annually by capture
and handling. Procedures to be
performed on handled animals include
mark (flipper tag), VHF tags, measure,
restrain, and weighing. The applicant
requests to take up to 400 northern fur
seals annually through salvage of parts.
Up to 35,000 northern fur seals may be
taken annually by harassment during
ground surveys, unmanned aircraft
systems surveys, observation,
photograph/video, as well as one
unintentional mortality, including
humane euthanasia if necessary. Up to
2,330 Steller sea lions (Eumetopias
jubatus) may be harassed annually for
the proposed projects, including 100
during salvage of parts. Up to 610
harbor seals (Phoca vitulina) may be
harassed annually, including 50 during
salvage of parts. An unlimited number
of samples may be salvaged from
stranded marine mammals including up
to ten unidentified cetaceans and up to
ten unidentified pinnipeds annually.
Parts salvaged from all marine mammal
species described here may be imported
or exported. The permit would be valid
for five years.
In compliance with the National
Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (42
U.S.C. 4321 et seq.), an initial
determination has been made that the
activity proposed is categorically
excluded from the requirement to
prepare an environmental assessment or
environmental impact statement.
Concurrent with the publication of
this notice in the Federal Register,
NMFS is forwarding copies of the
application to the Marine Mammal
Commission and its Committee of
Scientific Advisors.
