[FR Doc. 2017–26494 Filed 12–7–17; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 3410–30–P DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request The Department of Commerce (DOC) will submit to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for clearance the following proposal for collection of information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.). Agency: Economic Development Administration (EDA or Agency). Title: Revolving Loan Fund Reporting and Compliance Requirements. OMB Control Number: 0610–0095. Form Number(s): ED–209. Type of Review: Revision of a collection currently under review. Number of Respondents: 866. Average Hours per Response: 1.5 hours. Burden Hours: 1,299 hours. Needs and Uses: The EDA Revolving Loan Fund (RLF) Program, authorized under section 209 of the Public Works and Economic Development Act of 1965, as amended (42 U.S.C. 3149), has been part of EDA investment programs since the establishment of the RLF Program in 1975. The purpose of the RLF Program is to provide regions with a flexible and continuing source of capital, to be used with other economic development tools, for creating and retaining jobs and inducing private investment that will contribute to longterm economic stability and growth. EDA provides RLF grants to eligible recipients, which include State and local governments, Indian tribes, and non-profit organizations, to operate a lending program that offers loans with flexible repayment terms, primarily to small businesses in distressed communities that are unable to obtain traditional bank financing. These loans enable small businesses to expand and lead to new employment opportunities that pay competitive wages and benefits. A unique feature of the RLF Program is that EDA must monitor RLF grants in perpetuity because, absent statutory authority providing otherwise, the Federal interest in an RLF never expires. EDA regulations currently require RLF recipients to submit a financial report to EDA on a semi-annual basis for each RLF (13 CFR 307.14(a)), which is currently submitted via Form ED–209, Revolving Loan Fund Financial Report. VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:38 Dec 07, 2017 Jkt 244001 In addition, RLF recipients must also submit on a semi-annual basis a completed Form ED–209I, RLF Income and Expense Statement, if either of the following conditions apply: RLF administrative expenses for the reporting period exceeded $100,000, or RLF administrative expenses for the reporting period exceeded 50 percent of RLF income earned during the reporting period (13 CFR 307.14(c)). EDA requires both reports to be completed using standardized, auto-calculable fillable PDF (Portable Document Format) forms. EDA is revising its regulations implementing the RLF Program through a final rule published in the Federal Register on December 1, 2017, ‘‘Revolving Loan Fund Program Changes and General Updates to Public Works and Economic Development Act Regulations’’ (82 FR 57034). The revised regulations update RLF Program requirements to reflect best practices within financial institutions and to strengthen EDA’s efforts to evaluate, monitor, and improve RLF performance by moving to a risk-based approach to assess individual RLFs. The measures EDA plans to use to assess performance under the new risk-based approach were published in a notice in the Federal Register on December 1, 2017, ‘‘Implementation of Revolving Loan Fund Risk Analysis System’’ (82 FR 56942). In the transition to a risk-based approach, EDA has revised the RLF regulations to eliminate the requirement that RLF recipients submit Form ED– 209I. The revised RLF regulations instead encourage RLF recipients to keep administrative expenses to a minimum in order to maintain and grow the capital base of RLFs, in part by incorporating the percentage of RLF income used for administrative expenses as a performance measure in the new risk-based approach. Because of this change, EDA has determined that it is no longer necessary for RLF recipients to submit income and expense statements through Form ED–209I. In addition, EDA is revising Form ED–209 to reflect the new regulations and to ensure that the Form collects only the data necessary, including individual loan detail, to oversee the RLF Program under the new risk-based approach. As such, the revised Form ED–209 is shorter and easier to complete. The revised regulations will allow those RLF recipients that earn a high rating under the new risk-based monitoring approach to be placed on an annual reporting cycle, while RLF recipients receiving lower ratings will be required to maintain semi-annual reporting. PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 57949 The reduction in burden associated with the revised Form ED–209 and eliminated Form ED–209I is not a distinct ‘‘deregulatory action’’ for the purposes of Executive Order 13771, ‘‘Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs.’’ The revised Form ED–209 and eliminated Form ED–209I are one piece of EDA’s transition to a risk-based approach to monitor and manage the RLF Program. As such, the reduction in burden stemming from the shortened and simplified Form ED–209 and eliminated Form ED–209I are already accounted for as part of the broader ‘‘deregulatory action’’ made pursuant to the recently published final rule that revised the regulations governing the RLF Program. This notice clarifies the notice previously published in the Federal Register on November 2, 2017 relating to this information collection (82 FR 50858) and extends the 30-day period for public comment established in that notice to 30 days after publication of this notice. Affected Public: EDA RLF recipients, including state and local governments, Indian tribes, and non-profit organizations. Frequency: Semiannually or annually, depending on the RLF recipient’s rating under the risk-based oversight approach, as explained above. Respondent’s Obligation: Mandatory. This information collection request may be viewed at reginfo.gov. Follow the instructions to view DOC collections currently under review by OMB. Written comments and recommendations for the proposed information collection should be sent within 30 days of publication of this notice to OIRA_Submission@ omb.eop.gov or faxed to (202) 395–5806.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES Background On August 7, 2017, the Department published the Preliminary Results and gave interested parties an opportunity to comment.1 The Department received no comments. The Department conducted this review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Scope of the Order The product covered by this order is MSG, whether or not blended or in solution with other products. Specifically, MSG that has been blended or is in solution with other product(s) is included in this scope when the resulting mix contains 15 percent or more of MSG by dry weight.

Further, MSG is included in this order regardless of physical form (including, but not limited to, in monohydrate or anhydrous form, or as substrates, solutions, dry powders of any particle size, or unfinished forms such as MSG slurry), end-use application, or packaging. MSG in monohydrate form has a molecular formula of C5H8NO4NaH2O, a Chemical Abstract Service (CAS) registry number of 6106–04–3, and a Unique Ingredient Identifier (UNII) number of W81N5U6R6U. MSG in anhydrous form has a molecular formula of C5H8NO4Na, a CAS registry number of l42–47–2, and a UNII number 1 See Monosodium Glutamate from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2015–16, 82 FR 36730 (August 7, 2017) (Preliminary Results). VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:38 Dec 07, 2017 Jkt 244001 of C3C196L9FG. Merchandise covered by the scope of this order is currently classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) at subheading 2922.42.10.00. Merchandise subject to the order may also enter under HTS subheadings 2922.42.50.00, 2103.90.72.00, 2103.90.74.00, 2103.90.78.00, 2103.90.80.00, and 2103.90.90.91. The tariff classifications, CAS registry numbers, and UNII numbers are provided for convenience and customs purposes; however, the written description of the scope is dispositive.2 and the entity’s rate is not subject to change (i.e., 40.41 percent).8 Final Results of Review Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative review for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters not under review in this segment of the proceeding, but who have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the most recent period; (2) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the PRC-wide entity rate (i.e., 40.41 percent); and (3) for all non-PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC exporter that supplied that non-PRC exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. The Department preliminarily determined that none of the companies demonstrated eligibility for separate rate status and were thus found to be part of the PRC-wide entity.3 As noted above, the Department received no comments concerning the Preliminary Results on the record of this segment of the proceeding. As there are no changes from, or comments upon, the Preliminary Results, the Department finds that there is no reason to modify its analysis. Accordingly, no decision memorandum accompanies this Federal Register notice. For further details of the issues addressed in this proceeding, see the Preliminary Results.4 In these final results of review, we continued to treat all 27 exporters subject to this review as part of the PRC-wide entity.5 The PRCwide entity rate is 40.41 percent.6 PRC-Wide Entity The Department’s policy regarding the conditional review of the PRC-wide entity applies to this administrative review.7 Under this policy, the PRCwide entity will not be under review unless a party specifically requests, or the Department self-initiates, a review of the entity. Because no party requested a review of the PRC-wide entity in this review, the entity is not under review 2 See Monosodium Glutamate from the People’s Republic of China: Second Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Amended Antidumping Order, 80 FR 487 (January 6, 2015) (Amended Antidumping Duty Order). 3 See Preliminary Results. 4 See Preliminary Results. 5 In the Preliminary Results, we found all 27 exporters subject to this review to be part of the PRC-wide entity as each exporter failed to submit an SRA and/or an SRC to establish its eligibility for separate rate status.

The Department intends to issue assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication in the Federal Register of these final results of this administrative review. Reimbursement of Duties This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. Administrative Protective Order This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the return or 8 See E:\FR\FM\08DEN1.SGM Amended Antidumping Duty Order. 08DEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 235 / Friday, December 8, 2017 / Notices destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding.

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

Final Results of Review

    The Department preliminarily determined that none of the companies 
demonstrated eligibility for separate rate status and were thus found 
to be part of the PRC-wide entity.\3\ As noted above, the Department 
received no comments concerning the Preliminary Results on the record 
of this segment of the proceeding. As there are no changes from, or 
comments upon, the Preliminary Results, the Department finds that there 
is no reason to modify its analysis. Accordingly, no decision 
memorandum accompanies this Federal Register notice. For further 
details of the issues addressed in this proceeding, see the Preliminary 
Results.\4\ In these final results of review, we continued to treat all 
27 exporters subject to this review as part of the PRC-wide entity.\5\ 
The PRC-wide entity rate is 40.41 percent.\6\

    \5\ In the Preliminary Results, we found all 27 exporters 
subject to this review to be part of the PRC-wide entity as each 
exporter failed to submit an SRA and/or an SRC to establish its 
eligibility for separate rate status. For further details of the 
issues addressed in this proceeding, see the Preliminary Results.

PRC-Wide Entity

    The Department's policy regarding the conditional review of the 
PRC-wide entity applies to this administrative review.\7\ Under this 
policy, the PRC-wide entity will not be under review unless a party 
specifically requests, or the Department self-initiates, a review of 
the entity. Because no party requested a review of the PRC-wide entity 
in this review, the entity is not under review and the entity's rate is 
not subject to change (i.e., 40.41 percent).\8\

Assessment Rates

    The Department has determined, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries in this review, in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(C) of the 
Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). The Department intends to issue 
assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication in 
the Federal Register of these final results of this administrative 
review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For previously 
investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters not under review in 
this segment of the proceeding, but who have separate rates, the cash 
deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate published 
for the most recent period; (2) for all PRC exporters of subject 
merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, 
the cash deposit rate will be the PRC-wide entity rate (i.e., 40.41 
percent); and (3) for all non-PRC exporters of subject merchandise 
which have not received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be 
the rate applicable to the PRC exporter that supplied that non-PRC 
exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in 
effect until further notice.

Reimbursement of Duties

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or

[[Page 57951]]

destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which continues to govern 
business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding. 
Timely written notification of the return/destruction of APO materials 
or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure 
to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO is a violation, 
which is subject to sanction.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.213(h).

    Dated: December 4, 2017.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations, performing the non-exclusive functions and duties of the
