Proposed Collection; Comment Request-Consumer Focus Groups, 2264-2265 [E7-579]

Download as PDF pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES 2264 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 11 / Thursday, January 18, 2007 / Notices Based on the information submitted by Tradewinds Furniture and Tradewinds International regarding the change in name and status of Nanhai Jiantai and Fortune Glory, the Department determines that sufficient good cause exists to conduct a changed circumstances review. In a changed circumstances review involving a successor–in-interest determination, the Department typically examines several factors including, but not limited to, changes in: (1) Management; (2) production facilities; (3) supplier relationships; and (4) customer base. See Certain Cut–toLength Carbon Steel Plate from Romania: Initiation and Preliminary Results of Changed Circumstances Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 70 FR 22847 (May 3, 2005). While no single factor or combination of factors will necessarily be dispositive, the Department generally will consider the new company to be the successor to the predecessor if the resulting operations are essentially the same as those of the predecessor company. See, e.g., Notice of Initiation of Antidumping Duty Changed Circumstances Review: Certain Forged Stainless Steel Flanges from India, 71 FR 327 (January 4, 2006). Thus, if the record demonstrates that, with respect to the production and sale of the subject merchandise, the new company operates as the same business entity as the predecessor company, the Department may assign the new company the cash deposit rate of its predecessor. See, e.g., Fresh and Chilled Atlantic Salmon from Norway: Final Results of Changed Circumstances Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 64 FR 9979, 9980 (March 1, 1999). Based on the information provided in their submissions, Tradewinds Furniture and Tradewinds International have provided sufficient evidence to warrant a review to determine if they are the successors–in-interest to Nanhai Jiantai and Fortune Glory. Therefore, pursuant to section 751(b)(1) of the Act and 19 C.F.R. 351.216(b), we are initiating a changed circumstances review. However, although Tradewinds Furniture and Tradewinds International submitted documentation relating to their name and status change from Nanhai Jiantai and Fortune Glory, they did not provide certain supporting documentation for the elements listed above. Accordingly, the Department does not consider the information sufficient to make a preliminary finding and has determined that it would be inappropriate to expedite this action by combining the preliminary results of review with this notice of initiation, as VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:52 Jan 17, 2007 Jkt 211001 permitted under 19 C.F.R. 351.221(c)(3)(ii). As a result, the Department is not issuing preliminary results for this changed circumstances review at this time. Public Comment Interested parties may submit comments that the Department will take into account in the preliminary results of this changed circumstances review. The due date for filing any such comments is no later than 15 days from publication of this notice. Responses to those comments may be submitted no later than seven days from submission of the comments. All written comments must be submitted in accordance with 19 C.F.R. 351.303. The Department will issue questionnaires requesting factual information for this changed circumstances review, and will publish in the Federal Register a notice of preliminary results of the changed circumstances review, in accordance with 19 C.F.R. 351.221(b)(4) and 351.221(c)(3)(i). This notice will set forth the factual and legal conclusions upon which our preliminary results are based and a description of any action proposed based on those results. Pursuant to 19 C.F.R. 351.221(b)(4)(ii), interested parties will have an opportunity to comment on the preliminary results. The Department will issue its final results of this changed circumstances review in accordance with the time limits set forth in 19 C.F.R. 351.216(e). This notice is published in accordance with section 751(b)(1) of the Act and 19 C.F.R. 351.221(b). Dated: January 10, 2007. David M. Spooner, Assistant Secretaryfor Import Administration. [FR Doc.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

    The Commission is authorized under section 5(a) of the Consumer 
Product Safety Act (CPSA), 15 U.S.C. 2054(a), to collect information, 
conduct research, and perform studies and investigations relating to 
the causes and prevention of deaths, accidents, injuries, illnesses, 
other health impairments, and economic losses associated with consumer 
products. Section 5(b) of the CPSA, 15 U.S.C. 2054(b), further provides 
that the Commission may conduct research, studies and investigations on 
the safety of consumer products or test consumer products and develop 
product safety test methods and testing devices.
    In order to better identify and evaluate the risks of product-
related incidents, the Commission staff seeks to solicit and obtain 
direct feedback from consumers on issues related to product safety such 
as recall effectiveness, product use, and perceptions regarding safety 
issues. Through participation in certain focus groups, consumers will 
be able to answer questions and provide information regarding their 
actual experiences, opinions and/or perceptions on the use or pattern 
of use of a specific product or type of product, including recalled 
products.
    The information collected from the Consumer Focus Groups will help 
inform the Commission's evaluation of consumer products and product use 
by providing insight and information into consumer perceptions and 
usage patterns. Such information may also assist the Commission in its 
efforts to support voluntary standards activities, and help the staff 
identify areas

regarding consumer safety issues that need additional research. In 
addition, based on the information obtained, the staff may be able to 
provide safety information to the public that is easier to read and is 
more easily understood by a wider range of consumers. The Consumer 
Focus Groups also may be used to solicit consumer opinions and feedback 
regarding the effectiveness of product recall communications and in 
determining what action is being taken by consumers in response to such 
communications and why. This may aid in tailoring future recall 
activities to increase the success of those activities. If this 
information is not collected, the Commission may not have available 
certain useful information regarding consumer experiences, opinions, 
and perceptions related to specific product use, on which the 
Commission uses, in part, in its ongoing efforts to improve the safety 
of consumer products on behalf of consumers.

B. Estimated Burden

    The Commission staff currently estimates that there may be up to 48 
participants annually in the Consumer Focus Groups. The Commission 
staff estimates that the burden hours for each participant will not 
exceed 4 hours total. Thus, the Commission staff estimates that the 
annual burden could total approximately 192 hours per year.
    The Commission staff estimates the value of the time of respondents 
to this collection of information at $26.86 an hour. This is based on 
the 2006 U.S. Department of Labor Employer Costs for Employee 
Compensation. At this valuation, the estimated annual cost to the 
public of this information collection will be about $5,517 per year.

persons about the proposed collection of information. The Commission 
specifically solicits information relevant to the following topics:

minimized by use of automated, electronic or other technological 
collection techniques, or other forms of information technology.
