SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Phytophthora Ramorum; Quarantine and Regulations. OMB Control Number: 0579–0310. Type of Request: Revision to and extension of approval of an information collection. Abstract: The Plant Protection Act (7 U.S.C. 7701 et seq.) authorizes the Secretary of Agriculture to restrict the importation, entry, or interstate movement of plants, plant products, and other articles to prevent the introduction of plant pests into the United States or their dissemination within the United States. In accordance with the regulations in ‘‘Subpart–Phytophthora Ramorum’’ (§§ 301.92 through 301.92–12), the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture restricts the interstate movement of certain articles to prevent the spread of Phytophthora ramorum, the plant pathogen that causes the disease commonly known as sudden oak death. The regulations contain requirements for the interstate movement of regulated articles, such as nursery stock and certain trees, from both quarantined and nonquarantined areas and involve information collection activities, including compliance agreements, annual inspections of nurseries and certification of nurseries, issuance and cancellation of certificates, sampling labels for testing, records of fungicide applications, recordkeeping of incoming and outgoing shipments of plants, notification of high risk P. ramorum genera, and emergency action notifications. We are asking the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to approve our use of these information collection activities, as described, for an additional 3 years. VerDate Sep<11>2014 13:48 Apr 21, 2017 Jkt 241001 The purpose of this notice is to solicit comments from the public (as well as affected agencies) concerning our information collection. These comments will help us: (1) Evaluate whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of our estimate of the burden of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, through use, as appropriate, of automated, electronic, mechanical, and other collection technologies; e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. Estimate of burden: The public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 0.29 hours per response. Respondents: Nurseries, private industry, and State plant regulatory officials. Estimated annual number of respondents: 29. Estimated annual number of responses per respondent: 23. Estimated annual number of responses: 678. Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 199 hours. (Due to averaging, the total annual burden hours may not equal the product of the annual number of responses multiplied by the reporting burden per response.) All responses to this notice will be summarized and included in the request for OMB approval. All comments will also become a matter of public record. Done in Washington, DC, this 19th day of April 2017. Michael C. Gregoire, Acting Administrator, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service.

Because the ITC determined that imports of phosphor copper from Korea are materially injuring a U.S. industry, unliquidated entries of such merchandise from Korea, entered or withdrawn for consumption, are subject to the assessment of antidumping duties. Therefore, in accordance with section 736(a)(1) of the Act, the Department will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to assess, upon further instruction by the Department, antidumping duties equal to the amount by which the normal value of the merchandise exceeds the export price (or constructed export price) of the merchandise, for all relevant entries of phosphor copper from Korea. Antidumping duties will be assessed on unliquidated entries of phosphor copper entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after October 14, 2016, the date on which the Department published the Preliminary Determination,5 but will not include entries occurring after the expiration of the provisional measures period and before publication of the ITC’s final injury determination, as further described below. Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, we will instruct CBP to continue to suspend liquidation on entries of subject merchandise from Korea. These instructions suspending liquidation will remain in effect until further notice. We will also instruct CBP to require cash deposits equal to the estimated 4 See ITC Letter.

Provisional Measures Section 733(d) of the Act states that instructions issued pursuant to an affirmative preliminary determination may not remain in effect for more than four months, except where exporters representing a significant proportion of exports of the subject merchandise request the Department to extend that four-month period to no more than six months. At the request of Bongsan Co., Ltd., the sole mandatory respondent in this investigation, the Department extended the four-month period to six months.7 In the underlying investigation, the Department published the Preliminary Determination on October 14, 2016.8 Therefore, the sixmonth period beginning on the date of the publication of the Preliminary Determination ended on April 11, 2017. Furthermore, section 737(b) of the Act states that definitive duties are to begin on the date of publication of the ITC’s final injury determination.

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In accordance with section 735(d) and 
777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the ``Act''), and 19 
CFR 351.210(c), on March 3, 2017, the Department published its

of Commerce for Enforcement and Compliance, from Rhonda K 
Schmidtlein, Chairman of the U.S. International Trade Commission, 
regarding phosphor copper from the Republic of Korea (April 17,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise covered by the order is master alloys \3\ of copper 
containing between five percent and 17 percent phosphorus by nominal 
weight, regardless of form (including but not limited to shot, pellet, 
waffle, ingot, or nugget), and regardless of size or weight. Subject 
merchandise consists predominantly of copper (by weight), and may 
contain other elements, including but not limited to iron (Fe), lead 
(Pb), or tin (Sn), in small amounts (up to one percent by nominal 
weight). Phosphor copper is frequently produced to JIS H2501 and ASTM

7405.00.1000. This HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and 
customs purposes; the written description of the scope of the order is 
dispositive.

Antidumping Duty Order

    On April 17, 2017, in accordance with sections 735(b)(1)(A)(i) and 
735(d) of the Act, the ITC notified the Department of its final 
determination in this investigation, in which it found that imports of 
phosphor copper from Korea are materially injuring a U.S. industry.\4\ 
Therefore, in accordance with section 735(c)(2) of the Act, we are 
publishing this antidumping duty order.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See ITC Letter.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Because the ITC determined that imports of phosphor copper from 
Korea are materially injuring a U.S. industry, unliquidated entries of 
such merchandise from Korea, entered or withdrawn for consumption, are 
subject to the assessment of antidumping duties.
    Therefore, in accordance with section 736(a)(1) of the Act, the 
Department will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') to 
assess, upon further instruction by the Department, antidumping duties 
equal to the amount by which the normal value of the merchandise 
exceeds the export price (or constructed export price) of the 
merchandise, for all relevant entries of phosphor copper from Korea. 
Antidumping duties will be assessed on unliquidated entries of phosphor 
copper entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or 
after October 14, 2016, the date on which the Department published the 
Preliminary Determination,\5\ but will not include entries occurring 
after the expiration of the provisional measures period and before 
publication of the ITC's final injury determination, as further 
described below.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See Phosphor Copper from the Republic of Korea: Affirmative 
Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less-Than-Fair Value, Negative 
Preliminary Determination of Critical Circumstances, 81 FR 71049 
(October 14, 2016) (``Preliminary Determination'').
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation

    In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, we will 
instruct CBP to continue to suspend liquidation on entries of subject 
merchandise from Korea. These instructions suspending liquidation will 
remain in effect until further notice.
    We will also instruct CBP to require cash deposits equal to the 
estimated weighted-average dumping margins indicated in the chart 
below. Accordingly, effective on the date of publication of the ITC's 
final affirmative injury determination, CBP will require, at the same 
time as importers would normally deposit estimated duties on this 
subject merchandise, a cash deposit at the rates listed below.\6\ The 
``all others'' rate applies to all producers or exporters not 
specifically listed.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See section 736(a)(3) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Provisional Measures

    Section 733(d) of the Act states that instructions issued pursuant 
to an affirmative preliminary determination may not remain in effect 
for more than four months, except where exporters representing a 
significant proportion of exports of the subject merchandise request 
the Department to extend that four-month period to no more than six 
months. At the request of Bongsan Co., Ltd., the sole mandatory 
respondent in this investigation, the Department extended the four-
month period to six months.\7\ In the underlying investigation, the 
Department published the Preliminary Determination on October 14, 
2016.\8\ Therefore, the six-month period beginning on the date of the 
publication of the Preliminary Determination ended on April 11, 2017. 
Furthermore, section 737(b) of the Act states that definitive duties 
are to begin on the date of publication of the ITC's final injury 
determination.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See Phosphor Copper from the Republic of Korea: Postponement 
of Final Determination of Sales at Less-Than-Fair Value, 81 FR 74763 
(October 27, 2016) (``Postponement of Final Determination'').
    \8\ See Preliminary Determination.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Therefore, in accordance with section 733(d) of the Act and our 
practice, we will instruct CBP to terminate the suspension of 
liquidation and to liquidate, without regard to antidumping duties, 
unliquidated entries of phosphor copper entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption after April 11, 2017, the date the 
provisional measures expired, and through the day preceding the date of 
publication of the ITC's final injury determination in the Federal 
Register.

Estimated Weighted-Average Dumping Margins

    The Department determines that the estimated final weighted-average 
dumping margins are as follows:
