SUMMARY: The Commission hereby gives notice of the scheduling of the final phase of antidumping investigation No. 731–TA–1163 (Final) under section 735(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1673d(b)) (the Act) to determine whether an industry in the United States is materially injured or threatened with material injury, or the establishment of an industry in the United States is materially retarded, by reason of less-than-fair-value imports from China of woven electric blankets, provided for in subheading 6301.10.00 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS).1 1 For purposes of this investigation, the Department of Commerce has defined the subject merchandise as finished, semi-finished, and unassembled woven electric blankets, including woven electric blankets commonly referred to as throws, of all sizes and fabric types, whether made of man-made fiber, natural fiber or a blend of both. Semi-finished woven electric blankets and throws consist of shells of woven fabric containing wire. Unassembled woven electric blankets and throws consist of a shell of woven fabric and one or more of the following components when packaged together or in a kit: (1) Wire; (2) controller(s). The shell of woven fabric consists of two sheets of fabric joined together forming a ‘‘shell.’’ The shell of woven fabric is manufactured to accommodate either the electric blanket’s wiring or a subassembly containing the electric blanket’s wiring (e.g., wiring mounted on a substrate). A shell of woven fabric that is not packaged together, or in a kit, with either wire, controller(s), or both, is not covered by this investigation even though the shell of woven fabric may be dedicated solely for use as a material in the production of woven electric blankets. Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, only the written description of the scope is dispositive.

Background: Chapter 3, Annex 3–A and Chapter 4 of the FTA contain the rules of origin for textiles and apparel for application of the tariff provisions of the FTA. These rules are reflected in General Note 30 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS). According to the USTR’s request letter, U.S. negotiators have recently reached agreement in principle with representatives of the government of Bahrain on certain modifications to the rules of origin to the FTA for certain combed cotton yarns used in the production of certain home furnishings, as described in the attachment to the letter (for the text of the letter and attachment, see the Commission’s Web site for this investigation at http:// www.usitc.gov/research_and_analysis/ What_We_Are_Working_On.htm). Section 202(j) of the United StatesBahrain Free Trade Agreement Implementation Act (the Act) authorizes the President, subject to the consultation and layover requirements of section 104 of the Act, to proclaim such modifications to the rules of origin as are necessary to implement an agreement pursuant to Article 3.2.5 of the FTA. One of the requirements set out in section 104 of the Act is that the President obtain advice from the United States International Trade Commission. The request letter asks that the Commission provide advice on the probable effect of the proposed modifications on U.S. trade under the U.S.-Bahrain FTA, total U.S. trade, and on domestic producers of the affected articles. The USTR asked that the Commission provide its report containing its advice by July 12, 2010, and that the Commission shortly thereafter issue a public version of the report with any confidential business information deleted. Additional information concerning the articles and the proposed modifications, including a copy of the USTR’s request letter, can be obtained by accessing the Commission’s Web site at http://www.usitc.gov. The current U.S.-Bahrain FTA rules of origin applicable to U.S. imports can be found in general note 30 of the HTS (see ‘‘General Notes’’ link at http:// www.usitc.gov/tata/hts/bychapter/ index.htm). Written Submissions: No public hearing is planned. However, interested parties are invited to file written PO 00000 Frm 00055 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 11559 submissions and other information concerning the matters to be addressed in this investigation.

To be assured of consideration by the Commission, written submissions relating to the Commission’s advice should be submitted at the earliest possible date, and should be received not later than 5:15 p.m., April 29, 2010. All written submissions must conform to the provisions of section 201.8 of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 201.8). Section 201.8 requires that a signed original (or a copy so designated) and fourteen (14) copies of each document be filed. In the event that confidential treatment of a document is requested, at least four (4) additional copies must be filed, in which the confidential information must be deleted (see the following paragraph for further information regarding confidential business information). The Commission’s rules authorize the filing submissions with the Secretary by facsimile or electronic means only to the extent permitted by section 201.8 of the rules (see Handbook on Electronic Filing Procedures, 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 be clearly marked as to whether they are the Aconfidential@ or Anon-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 interested parties. The Commission may include some or all of the confidential business information submitted in the course of this investigation in the report it sends to the USTR and the President. As requested by the USTR, the Commission will publish a public version of the report.

SUMMARY: The Commission hereby gives notice of the scheduling of the 
final phase of antidumping investigation No. 731-TA-1163 (Final) under 
section 735(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1673d(b)) (the Act) 
to determine whether an industry in the United States is materially 
injured or threatened with material injury, or the establishment of an 
industry in the United States is materially retarded, by reason of 
less-than-fair-value imports from China of woven electric blankets, 
provided for in subheading 6301.10.00 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule 
of the United States (HTSUS).\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ For purposes of this investigation, the Department of 
Commerce has defined the subject merchandise as finished, semi-
finished, and unassembled woven electric blankets, including woven 
electric blankets commonly referred to as throws, of all sizes and 
fabric types, whether made of man-made fiber, natural fiber or a 
blend of both. Semi-finished woven electric blankets and throws 
consist of shells of woven fabric containing wire. Unassembled woven 
electric blankets and throws consist of a shell of woven fabric and 
one or more of the following components when packaged together or in 
a kit: (1) Wire; (2) controller(s). The shell of woven fabric 
consists of two sheets of fabric joined together forming a 
``shell.'' The shell of woven fabric is manufactured to accommodate 
either the electric blanket's wiring or a subassembly containing the 
electric blanket's wiring (e.g., wiring mounted on a substrate). A 
shell of woven fabric that is not packaged together, or in a kit, 
with either wire, controller(s), or both, is not covered by this 
investigation even though the shell of woven fabric may be dedicated 
solely for use as a material in the production of woven electric 
blankets. Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience 
and customs purposes, only the written description of the scope is 
dispositive.
