Persons with mobility impairments who will need special assistance in gaining access to the Commission should contact the Office of the Secretary at 202–205–2000. Background: Section 1205(a) of the Omnibus Trade and Competitiveness Act of 1988 (the 1988 Act) (19 U.S.C. 3005(a)) provides that the Commission shall keep the HTS under continuous review and periodically recommend to the President such modifications in the HTS as the Commission considers necessary or appropriate to accomplish five general objectives. Among these stated objectives, section 1205(a)(1) of VerDate Nov<24>2008 19:04 Mar 08, 2010 Jkt 220001 the 1988 Act directs the Commission to conform the Harmonized Tariff Schedule with amendments made to the Harmonized System Convention, of which the United States is a signatory. Section 1205(a)(2) directs the Commission to promote the uniform application of the Harmonized System Convention and particularly the Protocol thereto, which contains the Harmonized System nomenclature structure and accompanying legal notes. Subsections (b)–(d) of section 1205 set out procedures to be utilized in formulating recommendations and the requirements that the Commission must observe with respect to the HTS modifications it may recommend. The proposed changes included in this investigation are set out in a Recommendation promulgated by the World Customs Organization (WCO) on June 26, 2009, in order to update and clarify the international Harmonized System nomenclature. The Recommendation—the fourth in a series—is part of the WCO’s long-term program to review periodically the HS nomenclature structure. In accordance with Article 16 of the Harmonized System Convention, the WCO has recommended the adoption of certain modifications to the Harmonized System nomenclature, which are scheduled to become effective on January 1, 2012. The WCO Recommendation of 26 June 2009 can be viewed on the Commission’s Web site: http://www.usitc.gov/tariff_affairs/ modifications_hts.htm. The Harmonized System nomenclature provides a uniform structural basis for the customs tariffs and statistical nomenclatures of all major trading countries of the world, including the United States. The Harmonized System comprises the broadest principles of classification and levels of categories in the HTS, that is, the General Rules of Interpretation, Section and Chapter titles, Section and Chapter legal notes, and heading and subheading texts to the 6-digit level of detail. Additional U.S. notes, further subdivisions (8-digit subheadings and 10-digit statistical annotations) and statistical notes, as well as the entirety of chapters 98 and 99 and several appendixes, are national legal and statistical detail added for the administration of the U.S. tariff and statistical programs, and are not part of the international Harmonized System. An up-to-date copy of the HTS, which incorporates the international Harmonized System in its overall structure, can be found on the Commission’s Web site (http:// www.usitc.gov/tata/hts/bychapter/ PO 00000 Frm 00066 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 10819 index.htm).

The Commission will prepare and make available a preliminary report and a final report. The preliminary report will be forwarded to the President via the United States Trade Representative on or about April 9, 2010. It will also be made available for public inspection (with the exception of any confidential business information) through the Commission’s electronic docket (EDIS) and posted on the USITC Web site (http://www.usitc.gov). The preliminary report will include proposed HTS modifications to conform the HTS to the WCO Recommendation of 26 June 2009. The public is invited to submit any comments until May 21, 2010. To assist the public in understanding the proposed changes and in developing comments, the Commission will include, in the preliminary and the final reports, a nonauthoritative cross-reference table linking the proposed tariff codes to corresponding current tariff codes. Persons using the successive versions of this table should be aware that the cross-references shown are subject to change during the course of preparing for implementation of the January 2102 amendments to the HTS. U.S. Customs and Border Protection has domestic legal authority for tariff classification and may provide information, both during the course of the investigation and after the Commission’s final report is submitted, that indicates different or additional tariff classifications of some goods. Moreover, the WCO Secretariat will eventually issue its own advisory cross-reference table between the 2007 HS and the 2012 HS. If necessary, the Commission’s report will provide an explanation for any differences between the WCO’s and the Commission’s crossreference tables; such differences would typically result from differences between WCO decisions and established U.S. customs classification of goods. The Commission’s final report, incorporating any public comments received, will be sent to the President (through USTR) on or about June 25, 2010. It will also be made available for public inspection (with the exception of any confidential business information) through the Commission’s electronic docket (EDIS) and posted on the USITC Web site (http://www.usitc.gov).

Persons with questions regarding electronic filing should contact the Secretary (202–205–2000). Any submissions that contain confidential business information must also conform with the requirements of section 201.6 of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 201.6). Section 201.6 of the rules requires that the cover of the document and the individual pages be clearly marked as to whether they are the ‘‘confidential’’ or ‘‘non-confidential’’ version, and that the confidential business information be clearly identified by means of brackets. All written submissions, except for confidential business information, will be made available for inspection by the public.

[FR Doc. 2010–4969 Filed 3–8–10; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 7020–02–P DEPARTMENT OF LABOR Bureau of Labor Statistics Proposed Collection, Comment Request ACTION: Notice. SUMMARY: The Department of Labor, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a pre-clearance consultation program to provide the general public and Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of information in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA95) [44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)]. This program helps to ensure that requested data can be provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly understood, and the impact of collection requirements on respondents can be properly assessed. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) is soliciting comments concerning the proposed extension of the ‘‘Report on Occupational Employment and Wages.’’ A copy of the proposed information collection request (ICR) can be obtained by contacting the individual listed below in the Addresses section of this notice. DATES: Written comments must be submitted to the office listed in the Addresses section of this notice on or before May 10, 2010. ADDRESSES: Send comments to Carol Rowan, BLS Clearance Officer, Division of Management Systems, Bureau of Labor Statistics, Room 4080, 2 Massachusetts Avenue, NE., Washington, DC 20212. Written comments also may be transmitted by fax to 202–691–5111 (this is not a toll free number). FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Carol Rowan, BLS Clearance Officer, at 202–691–7628 (this is not a toll free number). (See ADDRESSES section.) SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The Occupational Employment Statistics (OES) survey is a Federal/State establishment survey of wage and salary workers designed to produce data on current occupational employment and PO 00000 Frm 00067 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 wages. OES survey data assist in the development of employment and training programs established by the 1998 Workforce Investment Act (WIA) and the Perkins Vocational Education Act of 1998. The OES program operates a periodic mail survey of a sample of non-farm establishments conducted by all fifty States, the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Over three-year periods, data on occupational employment and wages are collected by industry at the fourand five-digit North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) levels. The Department of Labor uses OES data in the administration of the Foreign Labor Certification process under the Immigration Act of 1990. II. Current Action Office of Management and Budget clearance is being sought for the Occupational Employment Statistics (OES) program. Occupational employment data obtained by the OES survey are used to develop information regarding current and projected employment needs and job opportunities. These data assist in the development of State vocational education plans. OES wage data provide a significant source of information to support a number of different Federal, State, and local efforts. As part of an ongoing effort to reduce respondent burden, OES has several electronic submission options which are available to respondents. Respondents have the ability to submit data by email, or fillable online forms. In many cases, a respondent can submit existing payroll records and would not need to submit a survey form. III. Desired Focus of Comments The Bureau of Labor Statistics is particularly interested in comments that: • Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility. • Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used. • Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected. • Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other E:\FR\FM\09MRN1.SGM 09MRN1

    Background: Section 1205(a) of the Omnibus Trade and 
Competitiveness Act of 1988 (the 1988 Act) (19 U.S.C. 3005(a)) provides 
that the Commission shall keep the HTS under continuous review and 
periodically recommend to the President such modifications in the HTS 
as the Commission considers necessary or appropriate to accomplish five 
general objectives. Among these stated objectives, section 1205(a)(1) 
of the 1988 Act directs the Commission to conform the Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule with amendments made to the Harmonized System Convention, of 
which the United States is a signatory. Section 1205(a)(2) directs the 
Commission to promote the uniform application of the Harmonized System 
Convention and particularly the Protocol thereto, which contains the 
Harmonized System nomenclature structure and accompanying legal notes. 
Subsections (b)-(d) of section 1205 set out procedures to be utilized 
in formulating recommendations and the requirements that the Commission 
must observe with respect to the HTS modifications it may recommend.
    The proposed changes included in this investigation are set out in 
a Recommendation promulgated by the World Customs Organization (WCO) on 
June 26, 2009, in order to update and clarify the international 
Harmonized System nomenclature. The Recommendation--the fourth in a 
series--is part of the WCO's long-term program to review periodically 
the HS nomenclature structure. In accordance with Article 16 of the 
Harmonized System Convention, the WCO has recommended the adoption of 
certain modifications to the Harmonized System nomenclature, which are 
scheduled to become effective on January 1, 2012. The WCO 
Recommendation of 26 June 2009 can be viewed on the Commission's Web 
site: http://www.usitc.gov/tariff_affairs/modifications_hts.htm.
    The Harmonized System nomenclature provides a uniform structural 
basis for the customs tariffs and statistical nomenclatures of all 
major trading countries of the world, including the United States. The 
Harmonized System comprises the broadest principles of classification 
and levels of categories in the HTS, that is, the General Rules of 
Interpretation, Section and Chapter titles, Section and Chapter legal 
notes, and heading and subheading texts to the 6-digit level of detail. 
Additional U.S. notes, further subdivisions (8-digit subheadings and 
10-digit statistical annotations) and statistical notes, as well as the 
entirety of chapters 98 and 99 and several appendixes, are national 
legal and statistical detail added for the administration of the U.S. 
tariff and statistical programs, and are not part of the international 
Harmonized System.
    An up-to-date copy of the HTS, which incorporates the international 
Harmonized System in its overall structure, can be found on the 
Commission's Web site (http://www.usitc.gov/tata/hts/bychapter/index.htm). Hard copies and electronic copies of CD can be found at 
many of the 1,400 Federal Depository Libraries located throughout the 
United States and its territories; further information about these 
locations can be found at http://www.gpoaccess.gov/fdlp.html or by 
contacting GPO Access at the Government Printing Office, telephone 866-
512-1800.
    The Commission will prepare and make available a preliminary report 
and a final report. The preliminary report will be forwarded to the 
President via the United States Trade Representative on or about April 
9, 2010. It will also be made available for public inspection (with the 
exception of any confidential business information) through the 
Commission's electronic docket (EDIS) and posted on the USITC Web site 
(http://www.usitc.gov).
    The preliminary report will include proposed HTS modifications to 
conform the HTS to the WCO Recommendation of 26 June 2009. The public 
is invited to submit any comments until May 21, 2010. To assist the 
public in understanding the proposed changes and in developing 
comments, the Commission will include, in the preliminary and the final 
reports, a non-authoritative cross-reference table linking the proposed 
tariff codes to corresponding current tariff codes. Persons using the 
successive versions of this table should be aware that the cross-
references shown are subject to change during the course of preparing 
for implementation of the January 2102 amendments to the HTS. U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection has domestic legal authority for tariff 
classification and may provide information, both during the course of 
the investigation and after the Commission's final report is submitted, 
that indicates different or additional tariff classifications of some 
goods. Moreover, the WCO Secretariat will eventually issue its own 
advisory cross-reference table between the 2007 HS and the 2012 HS. If 
necessary, the Commission's report will provide an explanation for any 
differences between the WCO's and the Commission's cross-reference 
tables; such differences would typically result from differences 
between WCO decisions and established U.S. customs classification of 
goods.
    The Commission's final report, incorporating any public comments 
received, will be sent to the President (through USTR) on or about June 
25, 2010. It will also be made available for public inspection (with 
the exception of any confidential business information) through the 
Commission's electronic docket (EDIS) and posted on the USITC Web site 
(http://www.usitc.gov).

Following Congressional layover and consultation, the President may 
proclaim the tariff modifications recommended, effective not before the 
30th day after the date on which the text of the proclamation is

parties are invited to submit written comments, which should be 
addressed to the Secretary and received no later than May 21, 2010. 
Submissions should be marked to refer to ``Investigation No. 1205-7''.

http://www.usitc.gov/docket_services/documents/handbook_on_electronic_filing.pdf. Persons with questions regarding electronic 
filing should contact the Secretary (202-205-2000).
    Any submissions that contain confidential business information must 
also conform with the requirements of section 201.6 of the Commission's 
Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 201.6). Section 201.6 of the 
rules requires that the cover of the document and the individual pages

confidential'' version, and that the confidential business information 
be clearly identified by means of brackets. All written submissions, 
except for confidential business information, will be made available 
for inspection by the public. Any confidential business information 
that might be received in the comments may be made available to 
Customs, Census, or the President during the examination of these 
proposals. The Commission will not otherwise publish or release any 
confidential business information received, nor release it to other 
government agencies or other persons.
