SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract Public Law 97–446, as amended by Public Law 103–465, Public Law 106–36 and Public Law 108–429, requires the Departments of Commerce and the Interior to administer the distribution of watch duty-exemptions and watch and jewelry duty-refunds to program producers in the U.S. insular possessions and the Northern Mariana Islands. The primary consideration in collecting information is the enforcement of the laws and the information gathered is limited to that necessary to prevent abuse of the program and to permit a fair and equitable distribution of its benefits. Form ITA–334P is the principal program form used for recording operational data which are the bases for determining program entitlements and their distribution among the producers. This form also serves as the producer’s application to the Departments for these entitlements. The form is completed biannually by watch and jewelry manufacturers. We propose modifying the form and the title of the form due to the passage of Public Law 106–36 and Public Law 108–429. Also, due to the passage of Public Law 108–429, new paperwork requirements need to be added to Form ITA–334P. Without the additional data, it would not be possible to calculate the further benefits mandated by law. II. Method of Collection The Department of Commerce sends Form ITA–334P to each watch and jewelry producer biannually. A company official completes the form E:\FR\FM\08SEN1.SGM 08SEN1
