BACKGROUND: Section 1205(a) of the 1988 Act (19 U.S.C. 3005(a)) requires that the Commission 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, including to conform the Harmonized Tariff Schedule with amendments made to the Harmonized System Convention (to which the United States is a signatory) and to promote the uniform application of the Harmonized System Convention and particularly the Annex [Protocol] thereto, which contains the HS nomenclature structure and accompanying legal notes and rules. Section 1205(b)-(c) sets out procedures that the Commission must follow in making and reporting recommendations, including to provide notice of proposed recommendations to interested parties and provide such parties with an opportunity to present their views in writing. Section 1205(d) sets forth certain requirements regarding the recommendations the Commission is authorized to make to the President. The Commission is publishing its proposed recommendations in this investigation in the annex attached to this notice. Interested parties will have until February 22, 2013, to present their views in writing. See further instructions below relating to the time, place, and form for filing written views, including requirements relating to the submission of any confidential business information. The modifications being considered by the Commission at this time fall into two categories. The first category concerns modifications to two HTS chapters inadvertently omitted from Commission consideration when the Commission submitted a report to the President in June 2010 in investigation No. 1205–7, Proposed Modifications to the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, USITC Publication 4166). That investigation involved more than 200 amendments to the HS recommended by the WCO to be made effective on January 1, 2012. Most of the changes recommended by the WCO were made effective for the United States on February 3, 2012, pursuant to Proclamation 8771 of December 29, E:\FR\FM\27DEN1.SGM 27DEN1
