Petition for Exemption; Summary of Petition Received, 44241-44242 [2017-20099]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 182 / Thursday, September 21, 2017 / Notices asabaliauskas on DSKBBXCHB2PROD with NOTICES subject of an investigation under the Section 301 provisions of the Trade Act (19 U.S.C. 2411 et seq.). USTR may not identify a country as a Priority Foreign Country if that country is entering into good faith negotiations or making significant progress in bilateral or multilateral negotiations to provide adequate and effective IPR protection. In addition, USTR has created a ‘‘Priority Watch List’’ and a ‘‘Watch List’’ under the Special 301 provisions. Placement of a trading partner on the Priority Watch List or Watch List indicates that particular problems exist in that country with respect to IPR protection, enforcement, or market access for persons relying on intellectual property. Countries placed on the Priority Watch List are the focus of increased bilateral attention concerning the problem areas. An Out-of-Cycle Review (OCR) is a tool that USTR uses to encourage progress on IPR issues of concern. It provides an opportunity for heightened engagement with a trading partner to address and remedy such issues. Successful resolution of specific IPR issues of concern or lack of action on such issues can lead to a change in a trading partner’s identification on a Special 301 list outside of the typical period for the annual Special 301 Report. USTR may conduct OCRs of other trading partners as circumstances warrant or as requested by the trading partner. In the 2017 Special 301 Report, USTR placed Thailand on the Priority Watch List but noted that the United States was prepared to review that status if Thailand continued to take positive steps and made substantial progress in addressing the concerns described in the Report. Thailand has requested that USTR conduct an OCR in light of its efforts to achieve substantial progress. II. Public Comments USTR invites written comments concerning any act, policy, or practice that is relevant to the decision regarding whether USTR should identify Thailand under Section 182 of the Trade Act. Submissions may report positive or negative developments with respect to Thailand. USTR requests that interested parties provide specific references to laws, regulations, policy statements, executive, presidential or other orders, administrative, court or other determinations that should factor into the review. USTR also requests that submissions include data, loss estimates, and other information regarding the economic impact on the United States, U.S. industry, and the U.S. workforce caused by the denial of adequate and effective intellectual VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:52 Sep 20, 2017 Jkt 241001 property protection. For comments that include quantitative loss claims, you should include the methodology used to calculate the estimated losses. Comments should be as detailed as possible and should provide all necessary information for assessing the effect of the acts, policies, and practices, particularly with respect to issues regarding Thailand identified in the 2017 Special 301 Report.
