Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 195 / Friday, October 7, 2011 / Notices jlentini on DSK4TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES to Sweden, where it was loaded with software that enabled it to test equipment on wireless networks, was a product of Sweden. Once the software was installed on the phones in Sweden, they became devices with a new name, character and use, that is, network testing equipment. As a result of the programming operations performed in Sweden, CBP found that the country of origin of the network testing equipment was Sweden. In this case, hardware components are assembled into complete Ethernet switches in China. The switches are then shipped to the U.S., where they are programmed with EOS software, developed in the U.S. at significant cost to Arista and over many years. Since 2005, more than 140 software engineers have continued to develop the software and more than 80 percent of Arista’s Research and Development spending has been on EOS software development. The U.S.-origin EOS software enables the imported switches to interact with other network switches through network switching and routing, and allows for the management of functions such as network performance monitoring and security and access control. Without this software, the imported devices could not function as Ethernet switches. As a result of the programming performed in the U.S., with software developed in the U.S., the imported switches are substantially transformed in the U.S. See Data General, C.S.D. 84– 85, HQ 052325, HQ 558868, HQ 735027, and HQ 733085. The country of origin of the switches is the United States. Please be advised, however, that whether the switches may be marked ‘‘Made in the U.S.A.’’ or with similar words, is an issue under the authority of the Federal Trade Commission (‘‘FTC’’). We suggest that you contact the FTC, Division of Enforcement, 6th and Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20508, on the propriety of markings indicating that articles are made in the United States. HOLDING: Based on the facts provided, the programming operations performed in the United States impart the essential character to Artista’s 7 Series Ethernet switches. As such, the switches will be considered products of the United States for purposes of U.S. Government procurement. Notice of this final determination will be given in the Federal Register, as required by 19 C.F.R. § 177.29. Any party-at-interest other than the party which requested this final determination may request, pursuant to 19 C.F.R. § 177.31, that CBP reexamine VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:33 Oct 06, 2011 Jkt 226001 the matter anew and issue a new final determination. Pursuant to 19 C.F.R. § 177.30, any party-at-interest may, within 30 days of publication of the Federal Register Notice referenced above, seek judicial review of this final determination before the Court of International Trade.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: HUD is committed to meeting the goals of Executive Order 12898, ‘‘Federal Actions to Address Environmental Justice in Minority Populations and Low-Income Populations,’’ which states that each federal agency, with the law as its guide, should make environmental justice part of its mission. In this regard, HUD has developed its draft Environmental Justice Strategy (EJ Strategy). HUD’s EJ Strategy is a four-year plan to address environmental justice concerns and increase access to environmental benefits through HUD policies, programs, and activities. HUD’s EJ strategy can be found at http:// portal.hud.gov/hudportal/HUD?src=/ program_offices/sustainable_ housing_communities/HUD_ Draft_Environmental_Justice_Strategy. The release of the draft is the latest step in a larger Administration-wide effort to ensure strong protection from environmental and health hazards for all Americans. In August, federal agencies signed the ‘‘Memorandum of Understanding on Environmental Justice and Executive Order 12898’’ (EJ MOU), which committed each agency to, among other things, finalizing an EJ strategy and releasing annual implementation reports. Links to the other federal EJ Strategies can be found on the Environmental Justice Interagency Workgroup Web page at http://www.epa.gov/ environmentaljustice/interagency/ index.html. Links will be available by Friday, October 7th. HUD’s draft EJ Strategy will be open for public until November 14, 2011. Comments can be submitted by e-mailing EJStrategy@hud.gov. HUD will review the comments submitted, and is PO 00000 targeting finalization of the strategy by February 2012. After the strategy is issued in final, HUD and its federal partners will continue to engage stakeholders through outreach, education and stakeholder events and respond to public comments through annual implementation reports.
