Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 169 / Friday, August 31, 2007 / Notices sroberts on PROD1PC70 with NOTICES • Customs Notification No. 5/2004 (January 8, 2004) (‘‘basic customs duty’’ inter alia on spirits); • Customs Notification No. 20/1997 (March 1, 1997) (‘‘basic customs duty’’ inter alia on wine); • Customs Notification No. 32/2003 (March 1, 2003) (‘‘additional duty’’ inter alia on wine and spirits); and • Customs Notification No. 19/2006 (March 1, 2006) (‘‘extra additional duty’’ inter alia on wine and spirits). As a result of the duties, products from the United States do not appear to be exempt from ordinary customs duties or other charges in excess of those set forth in India’s WTO Tariff Schedule and appear to be accorded less favorable treatment than that provided in India’s WTO Tariff Schedule. Even if these duties were considered to be internal taxes applied at the time of importation, the duties appear to subject imports from the United States to internal taxes in excess of those applied to like domestic products or directly competitive or substitutable domestic products. USTR believes these measures are inconsistent with India’s obligations under Article II:1(a) and (b), Articles III:2 and III:4 of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade 1994. Public Comment: Requirements for Submissions Interested persons are invited to submit written comments concerning the issues raised in the dispute.

Similarly, to the extent possible, any attachments to the submission should be included in the same file as the submission itself, and not as separate files. Comments must be in English. A person requesting that information contained in a comment submitted by that person be treated as confidential business information must certify that such information is business confidential and would not customarily be released to the public by the commenter. Confidential business information must be clearly designated VerDate Aug<31>2005 00:43 Aug 31, 2007 Jkt 211001 as such and BUSINESS CONFIDENTIAL must be marked at the top and bottom of the cover page and each succeeding page. Persons who submit confidential business information are encouraged to also provide a non-confidential summary of the information. Information or advice contained in a comment submitted, other than business confidential information, may be determined by USTR to be confidential in accordance with section 135(g)(2) of the Trade Act of 1974 (19 U.S.C. 2155(g)(2)). If the submitter believes that information or advice may qualify as such, the submitter— (1) Must clearly so designate the information or advice; (2) Must clearly mark the material as ‘‘SUBMITTED IN CONFIDENCE’’ at the top and bottom of the cover page and each succeeding page; and (3) Is encouraged to provide a nonconfidential summary of the information or advice.
