Please note that comments submitted in response to this Notice are public record. Before including any detailed personal information, you should be aware that your comments as submitted, including your personal information, will be available for public review. Abstract of proposed collection: The Birth Affidavit is submitted in conjunction with an application for a U.S. passport, and is used by Passport Services to collect information for the purpose of establishing the U.S. nationality of a passport applicant who has not submitted an acceptable United States birth certificate with his/her passport application. The Secretary of State is authorized to issue U.S. passports under 22 U.S.C. 211a et seq, 8 U.S.C. 1104, and Executive Order 11295 (August 5, 1966). Pursuant to 22 CFR 51.2, only U.S. nationals may be issued a U.S. passport. Most passport applicants show U.S. nationality by providing a birth certificate showing the applicant was born in the United States. Some applicants, however, may have been born in the United States, but were never issued a birth certificate. Form DS–10 is a form affidavit for completion by a witness to the birth of such an applicant; it collects information relevant to establishing the identity of the affiant, and the birth circumstances of the passport applicant. If credible, the affidavit may permit the applicant to show U.S. nationality based on the applicant’s birth in the United States, despite having never been issued a U.S. birth certificate. We use the information collected on the person completing the affidavit to confirm that individual’s identity, which is relevant to confirming his or her relationship to the applicant and the likelihood that the affiant has actual knowledge of the circumstances of the applicant’s birth. PO 00000 Frm 00121 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Methodology: When needed, a Birth Affidavit is completed at the time a U.S. citizen applies for a U.S. passport. Dated: February 26, 2014.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 127(b)(1) of the Uruguay Round Agreements Act (‘‘URAA’’) (19 U.S.C. 3537(b)(1)) requires that notice and opportunity for comment be provided after the United States submits or receives a request for the establishment of a World Trade Organization (‘‘WTO’’) dispute settlement panel. Pursuant to this provision, USTR is providing notice that the United States has requested a panel pursuant to Article 21.5 of the WTO Understanding on Rules and Procedures Governing the Settlement of Disputes (‘‘DSU’’). Once it is established, the panel will hold its meeting in Geneva, Switzerland, and could issue a report on its findings within nine months after its establishment. Major Issues Raised by the United States On November 16, 2012, the WTO Dispute Settlement Body (‘‘DSB’’) adopted its recommendations and rulings in the dispute China— Countervailing and Anti-Dumping Duties on Grain Oriented Flat-rolled Electrical Steel from the United States (‘‘China—GOES’’) (DS414). The DSB found that China imposed antidumping and countervailing duties on U.S. exports of grain oriented flat-rolled electrical steel (‘‘GOES’’) in a manner that breached China’s obligations under the Agreement on Implementation of Article VI of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade 1994 (‘‘AD Agreement’’) and the Agreement on Subsidies and Countervailing Measures (‘‘SCM Agreement’’). The DSB recommended that China bring its measures into conformity with its obligations under these Agreements. On November 30, 2012, China announced its intention to implement the DSB’s recommendations and rulings in this dispute and stated that it would need a reasonable period of time in which to do so. On May 3, 2013, the arbitrator appointed under Article 21.3(c) of the DSU issued an Award providing China eight months and 15 days to implement the DSB’s recommendations and rulings, expiring on July 31, 2013. On July 31, 2013, China issued a re-determination in relation to the duties at issue in this dispute, as set forth in China’s Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM) Public Notice [2013] No. 51, including its annexes.
