Download as PDF 19170 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 73 / Tuesday, April 17, 2007 / Notices sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES certifies each portion separately according to quality. That is, if a consignment consists of both U.S. No. 1 and 2 Smooth Green Dry Peas, current procedure requires that the quantity representing each of the different qualities receive separate certification. Such certification may not meet the terms of sale for the contract. The U.S. standards for rice and grains offer an alternative approach that is termed ‘‘Option 2’’ grade designation. When a contract specifies an Option 2 grade designation, the applicant may specifically request Option 2 certification. Under Option 2 certification, there is no limitation placed on the amount of better quality grain in the lot. When a lot meets or is of better quality than the declared grade, inspectors include the term ‘‘or better’’ immediately following the numerical or sample grade designation. We would like to offer the Option 2 grade designation and certification approach for peas and lentils. Under such an approach, peas or lentils that are a better quality than that specified by the contract would be certified as a specific grade ‘‘or better;’’ (for example, U.S. No. 2, or better, Smooth Dry Peas). The applicant for inspection can obtain the optional certification procedure by requesting it on the application for inspection. The applicant would file the request for the optional certification prior to the beginning of inspection so the inspector knows how to certify the lot. We believe that Option 2 grade designation and certification will better align the pea and lentil industries with the rice and grain industries, provide sellers with the flexibility to ship peas and lentils of better quality, and provide buyers with the desirable option of receiving better quality. Mixed Whole Dry Peas We also intend to eliminate the requirement that certain grade related information be shown on the grade line of the certificate for the class of Mixed Whole Dry Peas. Currently, the U.S. standards for Whole Dry Peas require a breakdown of the different classes, in order of predominance, be shown on the grade line of the certificate, in addition to the regular grade designation information, when the peas are classed as Mixed peas. Instead of showing this information on the grade line, we plan to enter such information in the ‘‘Results’’ section of the certificate. This approach will not change the grade of the product. We intend for the change to improve the readability of the certificate. The grade line will provide the grade designation and other related information will be provided in the VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:39 Apr 16, 2007 Jkt 211001 ‘‘Results’’ section of the certificate. Further, this change in the U.S. standards for Whole Dry Peas will better align certification requirements in peas with other graded commodities such as rice, beans, and lentils. Comments We are requesting comments for 30 days. All comments received within the comment period will be made part of the public record we maintain, will be available to the public for review, and will be considered before we take final action. industry to make foreign availability determinations. Exporters are urged to submit data regarding the foreign product’s technical characteristics and the availability of these products in foreign markets to determine if similar U.S. products should be decontrolled.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract The International Trade Administration’s U.S. Commercial Service (CS) is mandated by Congress to help U.S. businesses, particularly small and medium-sized companies, export their products and services to global markets. As part of its mission, the CS currently uses transactional user satisfaction surveys to collect feedback from U.S. business clients that use CS pay-for-use products/events provided by the organization’s international offices. These surveys ask the client to evaluate the CS on its customer service delivery for a specific transaction. The results from these transactional user satisfaction surveys are used to ensure that clients’ needs and expectations are met and service delivery is consistent across the organization. In addition to conducting user satisfaction surveys on a transactional basis for pay-for-use products/events provided by the CS’s international offices, the CS would like to conduct a strategic user satisfaction survey on an annual basis to collect more in-depth user satisfaction feedback from CS clients in order to assess the importance or relative impact of specific service delivery processes and attributes on overall customer satisfaction. Survey responses would enable the CS to prioritize the allocation of time, budget and resources using performanceimportance diagrams. Without this information, CS is unable to systematically determine the actual and relative levels of performance for attributes, processes and subprocesses, identify the drivers or determinants of overall satisfaction, and provide clear, actionable insights for managerial intervention. This information will be used for program improvement, strategic planning, and allocation of resources. II. Method of Collection The data collection method for the CS is an e-mail message delivering a hot link to a web-enabled survey. If the client does not respond to the survey within two weeks, another e-mail reminder is sent to the client. III. Data OMB Number: None. Form Number: None. Type of Review: Regular submission. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit organizations. Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,500. Estimated Time per Response: 30 minutes. E:\FR\FM\17APN1.SGM 17APN1
