The products covered include coils that have a width of 12.7 mm or greater, regardless of form of coil (e.g., in successively superimposed layers, spirally oscillating, etc.). The products covered also include products not in coils (e.g., in straight lengths) of a thickness less than 4.75 mm and a width that is 12.7 mm or greater and that measures at least 10 times the thickness. The products covered also include products not in coils (e.g., in straight lengths) of a thickness of 4.75 mm or more and a width exceeding 150 mm and measuring at least twice the thickness. The products described above may be rectangular, square, circular, or other shape and include products of either rectangular or non-rectangular cross-section where such cross-section is achieved subsequent to the rolling process, i.e., products which have been ‘‘worked after rolling’’ (e.g., products which have been beveled or rounded at the edges). For purposes of the width and thickness requirements referenced above: (1) Where the nominal and actual measurements vary, a product is within the scope if application of either the nominal or actual measurement would place it within the scope based on the definitions set forth above, and (2) where the width and thickness vary for a specific product (e.g., the thickness of certain products with nonrectangular cross-section, the width of certain products with non-rectangular shape, etc.), the measurement at its greatest width or thickness applies. Steel products included in the scope of this investigation are products in which: (1) Iron predominates, by weight, over each of the other contained elements; (2) the carbon content is 2 percent or less, by weight; and (3) none of the elements listed below exceeds the quantity, by weight, respectively indicated: • 2.50 percent of manganese, or • 3.30 percent of silicon, or • 1.50 percent of copper, or • 1.50 percent of aluminum, or • 1.25 percent of chromium, or • 0.30 percent of cobalt, or • 0.40 percent of lead, or • 2.00 percent of nickel, or VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:21 Nov 05, 2015 Jkt 238001 • 0.30 percent of tungsten (also called wolfram), or • 0.80 percent of molybdenum, or • 0.10 percent of niobium (also called columbium), or • 0.30 percent of vanadium, or • 0.30 percent of zirconium Unless specifically excluded, products are included in this scope regardless of levels of boron and titanium. For example, specifically included in this scope are vacuum degassed, fully stabilized (commonly referred to as interstitial-free (IF)) steels and high strength low alloy (HSLA) steels. IF steels are recognized as low carbon steels with micro-alloying levels of elements such as titanium and/or niobium added to stabilize carbon and nitrogen elements. HSLA steels are recognized as steels with micro-alloying levels of elements such as chromium, copper, niobium, titanium, vanadium, and molybdenum. Furthermore, this scope also includes Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS) and Ultra High Strength Steels (UHSS), both of which are considered high tensile strength and high elongation steels. All products that meet the written physical description, and in which the chemistry quantities do not exceed any one of the noted element levels listed above, are within the scope of this investigation unless specifically excluded. The following products are outside of and/or specifically excluded from the scope of this investigation: • Flat-rolled steel products either plated or coated with tin, lead, chromium, chromium oxides, both tin and lead (‘‘terne plate’’), or both chromium and chromium oxides (‘‘tin free steel’’), whether or not painted, varnished or coated with plastics or other non-metallic substances in addition to the metallic coating; • Clad products in straight lengths of 4.7625 mm or more in composite thickness and of a width which exceeds 150 mm and measures at least twice the thickness; and • Certain clad stainless flat-rolled products, which are three-layered corrosion-resistant flat-rolled steel products less than 4.75 mm in composite thickness that consist of a flat-rolled steel product clad on both sides with stainless steel in a 20%– 60%–20% ratio. The products subject to the investigation are currently classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) under item numbers: 7210.30.0030, 7210.30.0060, 7210.41.0000, 7210.49.0030, PO 00000 Frm 00023 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 7210.49.0091, 7210.49.0095, 7210.61.0000, 7210.69.0000, 7210.70.6030, 7210.70.6060, 7210.70.6090, 7210.90.6000, 7210.90.9000, 7212.20.0000, 7212.30.1030, 7212.30.1090, 7212.30.3000, 7212.30.5000, 7212.40.1000, 7212.40.5000, 7212.50.0000, and 7212.60.0000.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    This request is for a new information collection to provide benefit 
throughout the sanctuary system and specifically our sites that work 
with Ocean Guardian Schools. The National Ocean Service (NOS) proposes 
to collect information from parents and teachers about the attitudes 
and preferences and economic value they receive from being involved 
with an Ocean Guardian school.
    Up-to-date socioeconomic data is needed to support the further 
development and improvement of Ocean Guardian Schools. These schools 
receive funding from the NOAA Office of Education and the Office of 
National Marine Sanctuaries. Schools may apply for funding up to five 
years. A number of schools have continued their Ocean Guardian School 
projects after the five years. From 2010-2015, the total funding 
received by 71 schools was $544,315.
    Although the costs and sources of funding are known, there is 
limited information known about the economic value participants place 
on this program and the economic value created by these schools and 
their many activities. Currently, there is no information available 
that provides estimates of the value of education programs like Ocean 
Guardian to parents and teachers. Ocean Guardian Schools receive 
funding to develop projects to help protect the ocean in the future and 
promote ocean conservation and stewardship. Projects include recycling, 
beach clean-up days, installing rain barrels, installing wildlife 
structures, composting, and energy reduction.
    The types of data targeted for this collection are: Attitudes and 
preferences towards the projects and student involvement, importance 
of/satisfaction with the program and attributes of the program, extent 
of reach (are parents aware of their student's involvement and are they 
too learning about ocean stewardship), level of teacher, student, 
parent and administrative involvement, and teachers' and parents' 
willingness to pay. The primary focus for the survey will be to gather 
data on parents' and teachers' willingness to pay for this program. 
Specifically, researchers will collect data to determine the economic 
value teachers, administrators and parents place on this program. The 
information collected will help to inform Ocean Guardian Schools about 
areas for improvement and the value that their programs create for the 
community.
