In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a valid OMB control number. The ICR documentation is available at http://www.reginfo.gov. Therefore, in preparation for OMB review and approval of the following information collection, TSA is soliciting comments to— (1) Evaluate whether the proposed information requirement is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; centers or NCCs) and counselors would therefore need to ask Callers questions from the Call Log. A 30% response rate is anticipated. 444,000 total annual calls × (20% of the centers) = 88,800 annual calls answered by NCCs × (30% response rate) = 26,640 Call Logs completed by NCCs. 4 Estimate based on crisis centers’ average staffing level of 30 counselors, 50% (15) of whom are volunteer. 25 non-automated centers × 15 volunteer counselors = 375 volunteer counselors. 5 Estimate assumes that incoming calls will be equally divided among volunteer and paid counselors. 26,640 calls ÷ 750 total counselors = 36 calls per counselor.

Information Collection Requirement OMB Control Number 1652–0039; TSA Claims Management Program allows the agency to collect information from claimants in order to thoroughly examine and resolve tort claims against the agency. TSA receives approximately 1,900 tort claims per month arising from airport screening activities and other circumstances, including motor vehicle accidents and employee loss. The Federal Tort Claims Act (28 U.S.C. 1346(b), 1402(b), 2401(b), 2671–2680) is the authority under which the TSA Claims Management Branch adjudicates tort claims. The data is collected whenever an individual believes s/he has experienced property loss or damage, a personal injury, or other damages due to the negligence or wrongful act or omission of a TSA employee, and decides to file a Federal tort claim against TSA. Submission of a claim is entirely voluntary and initiated by individuals. The claimants (or respondents) to this collection are typically the traveling public. Currently, claimants file a claim by submitting to TSA a Standard Form 95 (SF–95), which has been approved under OMB control number 1105–0008. Because TSA requires further clarifying information, claimants are asked to complete a Supplemental Information page added to the SF–95. If TSA determines payment is warranted, TSA will send the claimant a form requesting banking information (routing and accounting numbers) in order to direct payment to the claimant. This form has been approved under OMB control number 1652–0039. Claim instructions and forms are available through the TSA Web site at http://www.tsa.gov. Claimants must download these forms and mail or fax them to TSA. On the Supplemental Information page, claimants are asked to provide additional claim information including: (1) E–Mail address, (2) location of incident within the airport, (3) airport, (4) complete travel itinerary, (5) whether baggage was delayed by airline, (6) why they believe TSA was negligent, (7) whether they used a third- VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:46 Mar 31, 2009 Jkt 217001 party baggage service, (8) whether they were traveling under military orders, and (9) whether they submitted claims with the airlines or insurance.

Under the current system of claims submitted by mail or fax, TSA estimates there will be approximately 22,800 respondents on an annual basis, for a total annual hour burden of 11,400 hours. TSA will use all data collected from claimants to examine and analyze tort claims against the agency to determine alleged TSA liability and to reimburse claimants when claims are approved. In some cases, TSA may use the information to identify victims of theft or to aid any criminal investigations into property theft. Issued in Arlington, Virginia, on March 26, 2009.

ACTION: General notice. SUMMARY: This notice ends the designation of shrimp subject to antidumping or countervailing duty orders as a special category or covered case subject to an enhanced bonding requirement (EBR). A recent World Trade Organization (WTO) Appellate Body Report held that the application of this requirement to shrimp from Thailand and India was inconsistent with U.S. WTO obligations. In response to this report, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is ending the designation of shrimp subject to antidumping or countervailing duty orders as a special category or covered case subject to the EBR.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background A key U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) mission is to collect all import duties determined to be due to the United States. Under CBP statutes and regulations, release of merchandise prior to the determination of all duties that may be owed is ordinarily permitted, provided the importer posts a bond or other security to insure payment of duties and compliance with other applicable laws and regulations. The final assessment of duties occurs at liquidation of the entry. The United States maintains a retrospective antidumping and countervailing duty system. The retrospective system means that in the case of goods subject to antidumping or countervailing (AD/CV) duties, the actual rates of AD/CV duties owed are calculated after the entry is made, in an assessment review conducted by the Department of Commerce (DOC). There is a delay between entry and final duty collection, and the United States requires that a security be provided. When an importer requests an assessment review of an AD/CV duty order, the amount of the duty that is ultimately assessed, based on the final AD/CV duty rate, sometimes does not correspond to the amount of security posted. CBP follows instructions from the DOC. The DOC determines the actual AD/CV duty rates owed on merchandise subject to an AD/CV duty order. CBP assesses the duties owed on specific entries upon liquidation, pursuant to DOC instructions as to the final rates. However, CBP has found that many importers subject to AD/CV duties fail to pay the additional duties determined to be due at liquidation. As a result, because defaults on AD/CV duty supplemental bills have increased significantly, CBP conducted an internal policy review of revenue protection strategies. E:\FR\FM\01APN1.SGM 01APN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Comments Invited

    In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 
3501 et seq.), an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is 
not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it 
displays a valid OMB control number. The ICR documentation is available 
at http://www.reginfo.gov. Therefore, in preparation for OMB review and 
approval of the following information collection, TSA is soliciting 
comments to--
    (1) Evaluate whether the proposed information requirement is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;

[[Page 14809]]

    (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden;
    (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to 
be collected; and
    (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those 
who are to respond, including using appropriate automated, electronic, 
mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms 
of information technology.

Information Collection Requirement

    OMB Control Number 1652-0039; TSA Claims Management Program allows 
the agency to collect information from claimants in order to thoroughly 
examine and resolve tort claims against the agency. TSA receives 
approximately 1,900 tort claims per month arising from airport 
screening activities and other circumstances, including motor vehicle 
accidents and employee loss. The Federal Tort Claims Act (28 U.S.C. 
1346(b), 1402(b), 2401(b), 2671-2680) is the authority under which the 
TSA Claims Management Branch adjudicates tort claims.
    The data is collected whenever an individual believes s/he has 
experienced property loss or damage, a personal injury, or other 
damages due to the negligence or wrongful act or omission of a TSA 
employee, and decides to file a Federal tort claim against TSA. 
Submission of a claim is entirely voluntary and initiated by 
individuals. The claimants (or respondents) to this collection are 
typically the traveling public. Currently, claimants file a claim by 
submitting to TSA a Standard Form 95 (SF-95), which has been approved 
under OMB control number 1105-0008. Because TSA requires further 
clarifying information, claimants are asked to complete a Supplemental 
Information page added to the SF-95. If TSA determines payment is 
warranted, TSA will send the claimant a form requesting banking 
information (routing and accounting numbers) in order to direct payment 
to the claimant. This form has been approved under OMB control number 
1652-0039.
    Claim instructions and forms are available through the TSA Web site 
at http://www.tsa.gov. Claimants must download these forms and mail or 
fax them to TSA. On the Supplemental Information page, claimants are 
asked to provide additional claim information including: (1) E-Mail 
address, (2) location of incident within the airport, (3) airport, (4) 
complete travel itinerary, (5) whether baggage was delayed by airline, 
(6) why they believe TSA was negligent, (7) whether they used a third-
party baggage service, (8) whether they were traveling under military 
orders, and (9) whether they submitted claims with the airlines or 
insurance.
    If TSA determines payment is warranted, TSA sends the claimant a 
form requesting: (1) Claimant signature, (2) banking information, and 
(3) Social Security number (required by the U.S. Treasury for all 
Government payments to the public pursuant to 31 U.S.C. 3325).
    Under the current system of claims submitted by mail or fax, TSA 
estimates there will be approximately 22,800 respondents on an annual 
basis, for a total annual hour burden of 11,400 hours.
    TSA will use all data collected from claimants to examine and 
analyze tort claims against the agency to determine alleged TSA 
liability and to reimburse claimants when claims are approved. In some 
cases, TSA may use the information to identify victims of theft or to 
aid any criminal investigations into property theft.
