ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The Departments of Commerce and the Interior (the Departments) issue this rule to amend their regulations governing jewelry duty-refund benefits for producers in the United States insular possessions (the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands) published on April 5, 2007 (72 FR 16713). This amendment is needed to correct the formula for the calculation of the jewelry duty-refund, in accordance with Public Law 108–429. DATES: This rule is effective June 19, 2008.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Departments of Commerce and the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Interior (the Departments) published a document in the Federal Register on April 5, 2007 (72 FR 16712), amending their regulations governing watch dutyexemption allocations and the watch and jewelry duty-refund benefits for producers in the United States insular possessions (the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands). That document inadvertently provided an incorrect formula for the calculation of the jewelry duty-refund in sections 303.15(b), 303.20(b)(1) and 303.20(b)(2). This document corrects the final regulations by revising the unit thresholds in the mid-year duty-refund benefit calculation to reflect the correct amounts. The unit thresholds are amended by replacing the amounts in sections 303.20(b)(1)(ii), (b)(1)(ii) and (b)(1)(iii) from 450,000; 600,000 and 750,000 to 3,533,334; 6,766,667 and 10,000,000, respectively. This rule also corrects the final regulations by revising the calculation and unit thresholds in the annual duty-refund benefit calculation to reflect the correct formula and amounts. The unit thresholds are amended by replacing the amounts in sections 303.20(b)(2)(ii), (b)(2)(ii) and (b)(2)(iii) from 450,000; 600,000 and 750,000 to 3,533,334; 6,766,667 and 10,000,000 respectively. Classification Administrative Procedure Act The International Trade Administration (ITA) finds good cause under 5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) to waive prior notice and the opportunity for comment as it is impracticable and contrary to the public interest. This final rule amends the regulations governing jewelry dutyrefund benefits for producers in the United States insular possessions. A previously published rule inadvertently provided an incorrect formula and unit thresholds for the calculation of the jewelry duty-refund in sections 303.15(b), 303.20(b)(1) and (b)(2). This document corrects the final regulations by revising these sections to be consistent with ITA’s statutory mandate to provide duty-refund benefits as provided in Public Law 106–36 and 108–429. If this amendment is not implemented immediately, the correct formula and maximum unit thresholds would not be in place when the Departments calculate the amount of the duty-refund in July 2008. In order to have the correct formula and unit thresholds in place by the time the refund is calculated, it is necessary to implement this rule immediately.

SUMMARY:  The Departments of Commerce and the Interior (the 
Departments) issue this rule to amend their regulations governing 
jewelry duty-refund benefits for producers in the United States insular 
possessions (the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa and the 
Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands) published on April 5, 
2007 (72 FR 16713). This amendment is needed to correct the formula for 
the calculation of the jewelry duty-refund, in accordance with Public 
Law 108-429.

DATES:  This rule is effective June 19, 2008.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Faye Robinson, Director, Statutory 
Import Programs Staff at (202) 482-3526.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:  The Departments of Commerce and the 
Interior (the Departments) published a document in the Federal Register 
on April 5, 2007 (72 FR 16712), amending their regulations governing 
watch duty-exemption allocations and the watch and jewelry duty-refund 
benefits for producers in the United States insular possessions (the 
U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, American Samoa and the Commonwealth of the 
Northern Mariana Islands). That document inadvertently provided an 
incorrect formula for the calculation of the jewelry duty-refund in 
sections 303.15(b), 303.20(b)(1) and 303.20(b)(2). This document 
corrects the final regulations by revising the unit thresholds in the 
mid-year duty-refund benefit calculation to reflect the correct 
amounts. The unit thresholds are amended by replacing the amounts in 
sections 303.20(b)(1)(ii), (b)(1)(ii) and (b)(1)(iii) from 450,000; 
600,000 and 750,000 to 3,533,334; 6,766,667 and 10,000,000, 
respectively. This rule also corrects the final regulations by revising 
the calculation and unit thresholds in the annual duty-refund benefit 
calculation to reflect the correct formula and amounts. The unit 
thresholds are amended by replacing the amounts in sections 
303.20(b)(2)(ii), (b)(2)(ii) and (b)(2)(iii) from 450,000; 600,000 and 
750,000 to 3,533,334; 6,766,667 and 10,000,000 respectively.

Classification

Administrative Procedure Act

    The International Trade Administration (ITA) finds good cause under 
5 U.S.C. 553(b)(B) to waive prior notice and the opportunity for 
comment as it is impracticable and contrary to the public interest. 
This final rule amends the regulations governing jewelry duty-refund 
benefits for producers in the United States insular possessions. A 
previously published rule inadvertently provided an incorrect formula 
and unit thresholds for the calculation of the jewelry duty-refund in 
sections 303.15(b), 303.20(b)(1) and (b)(2). This document corrects the 
final regulations by revising these sections to be consistent with 
ITA's statutory mandate to provide duty-refund benefits as provided in 
Public Law 106-36 and 108-429. If this amendment is not implemented 
immediately, the correct formula and maximum unit thresholds would not 
be in place when the Departments calculate the amount of the duty-
refund in July 2008. In order to have the correct formula and unit 
thresholds in place by the time the refund is calculated, it is 
necessary to implement this rule immediately.

Regulatory Flexibility Act

    Because a notice of proposed rulemaking and an opportunity for 
public comment are not required to be given for this rule under the 
Administrative Procedure Act or by any other law, the analytical 
requirements of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) 
are not applicable.

Paperwork Reduction Act

    This final rule does not contain collection-of-information 
requirements subject to review and approval by OMB under the Paperwork 
Reduction Act (PRA). Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no 
person is required to respond to, nor shall any person be subject to a 
penalty for failure to comply with, a collection of information subject 
to the Paperwork Reduction Act unless that collection displays a valid 
OMB Control Number.

Executive Order 12866

    It has been determined that this rule is not significant for 
purposes of Executive Order 12866.

Executive Order 13132

    This rule does not contain policies with federalism implications as 
that term is defined in Executive Order 13132.
