ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: USTR is providing notice that the tariff-rate quota for sugar established by the United States-Colombia Trade Promotion Agreement will be administered using certificates of quota eligibility.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ann Heilman-Dahl, Office of Agriculture Affairs, telephone: (202) 395–6127 or facsimile: (202) 395–4579. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On November 22, 2006, the United States entered into the United States-Colombia Trade Promotion Agreement (the ‘‘Agreement’’) and, on June 28, 2007, the Parties to the Agreement signed a protocol amending the Agreement. Congress approved the Agreement as amended in section 101(a) of the United States-Colombia Trade Promotion Agreement Implementation Act (the ‘‘Implementation Act’’) (Pub. L. 112–42, 125 Stat. 462) (19 U.S.C. 3805 note). The President is authorized under section 201(d) of the Implementation Act to take such action as may be necessary in implementing the tariff-rate quotas set forth in Appendix I to the General Notes to the Schedule of the United States to Annex 2.3 of the Agreement to ensure the orderly marketing of commodities in the United States. Under a tariff-rate quota, the United States applies one tariff rate, known as the ‘‘in-quota tariff rate,’’ to imports of a product up to a particular amount, known as the ‘‘inquota quantity,’’ and a different, higher tariff rate, known as the ‘‘over-quota tariff rate,’’ to imports of the product in excess of that amount.) Appendix I of the Agreement establishes a tariff-rate quota for imports of sugar from Colombia. USTR is providing notice that the United States, consistent with Note 9(a) of Appendix I, is administering the duty-free quantities of sugar established under the Agreement through a certificate system substantially similar to that described in 15 CFR 2011.102(c) (2006). Consistent with 15 CFR 2011.102(c), no sugar that is the product of Colombia may be permitted entry under the in-quota tariff-rate established for imports of sugar from Colombia unless at the time of entry the person entering such sugar presents to the appropriate customs official a valid and properly executed certificate of quota eligibility for such sugar. The Secretary of Agriculture will issue such certificates of quota eligibility to the Government of Colombia. These certificates, when duly executed and issued by the certifying authority of Colombia, will authorize entry into the United States at the in-quota tariff-rate established under the Agreement.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: This notice provides information regarding the FHWA’s finding that a Buy America waiver is appropriate for the use of non-domestic 45′ and 55′ Pre-stressed Spun Concrete Transmission and Distribution Power Poles in the Territory of Guam for synchronization of the existing system. DATES: The effective date of the waiver is April 26, 2012. pmangrum on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:14 Apr 24, 2012 Jkt 226001 For questions about this notice, please contact Mr. Gerald Yakowenko, FHWA Office of Program Administration, (202) 366–1562, or via email at gerald.yakowenko@dot.gov. For legal questions, please contact Mr. Michael Harkins, FHWA Office of the Chief Counsel, (202) 366–4928, or via email at michael.harkins@dot.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Electronic Access An electronic copy of this document may be downloaded from the Federal Register’s home page at: http:// www.archives.gov and the Government Printing Office’s database at: http:// www.gpo.gov. Background The FHWA’s Buy America policy in 23 CFR 635.410 requires a domestic manufacturing process for any steel or iron products (including protective coatings) that are permanently incorporated in a Federal-aid construction project. The regulation also provides for a waiver of the Buy America requirements when the application would be inconsistent with the public interest or when satisfactory quality domestic steel and iron products are not sufficiently available. This notice provides information regarding the FHWA’s finding that a Buy America waiver is appropriate to use nondomestic 45′ and 55′ Pre-stressed Spun Concrete Transmission and Distribution Power Poles in the Territory of Guam. In accordance with Division A, section 123 of the ‘‘Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2010’’ (Pub. L. 111– 117), the FHWA published a notice of intent to issue a waiver on its Web site for 45′ and 55′ Pre-stressed Spun Concrete Transmission and Distribution Power Poles in the Territory of Guam (http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/construction/ contracts/waivers.cfm?id=66) on March 12. The FHWA received one comment in response to the publication. The comment supports approval of the waiver request. During the 15-day comment period, the FHWA conducted additional nationwide review to locate potential domestic manufacturers of 45′ and 55′ Pre-stressed Spun Concrete Transmission and Distribution Power Poles in the Territory of Guam. Based on all the information available to the agency, the FHWA concludes that there are no domestic manufacturers of 45′ and 55′ Pre-stressed Spun Concrete Transmission and Distribution Power Poles.

L. 110–244, 122 Stat. 1572), the FHWA is providing this notice as its finding that a waiver of Buy America requirements is appropriate. The FHWA invites public comment on this finding for an additional 15 days following the effective date of the finding. Comments may be submitted to the FHWA’s Web site via the link provided to the Territory of Guam waiver page noted above. (Authority: 23 U.S.C. 313; Pub.
