Download as PDF sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 242 / Tuesday, December 19, 2017 / Notices Expiration Date of Approval: March 31, 2018. Type of Request: Extension of a Currently Approved Information Collection. Abstract: The information collection under OMB Number 0575–0018 enables the RHS, RBS, and RUS, to effectively monitor a recipient’s compliance with the civil rights laws, and to determine whether or not service and benefits are being provided to beneficiaries on an equal opportunity basis. The RBS, RHS, and RUS are required to provide Federal financial assistance through its housing and community and business programs on an equal opportunity basis. The laws implemented in 7 CFR part 1901, subpart E, require the recipients of RBS, RHS, and RUS Federal financial assistance to collect various types of information, including information on participants in certain of these agencies’ programs, by race, color, and national origin. The information collected and maintained by the recipients of certain programs from RBS, RHS, and RUS is used internally by these agencies for monitoring compliance with the civil rights laws and regulations. This information is made available to USDA officials, officials of other Federal agencies, and to Congress for reporting purposes. Without the required information, RBS, RHS, RUS and its recipients will lack the necessary documentation to demonstrate that their programs are being administered in a nondiscriminatory manner, and in full compliance with the civil rights laws. In addition, the RBS, RHS, RUS and their recipients would be vulnerable in lawsuits alleging discrimination in the affected programs of these agencies, and would be without appropriate data and documentation to defend themselves by demonstrating that services and benefits are being provided to beneficiaries on an equal opportunity basis. Estimate of Burden: Public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 7.5 hours per response. Respondents: Recipients of RBS, RHS, and RUS Federal financial assistance, loan, and loan guarantee programs. Estimated Number of Respondents: 27,000. Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 2.72. Estimated Number of Responses: 73,559. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 550,276. Copies of this information collection can be obtained from Jeanne Jacobs, Regulations and Paperwork VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:47 Dec 18, 2017 Jkt 244001 Management Branch, Support Services Division, at (202) 692–0040. Comments Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Rural Development, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the Agencies’ estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Comments may be sent to Jeanne Jacobs, Regulations and Paperwork Management Branch, Support Services Division, Rural Development, U.S. Department of Agriculture, STOP 0742, Washington, DC 20250–0742. 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. Dated: December 4, 2017. Richard A.

Within the scope of the order are semifinished diamond sawblades, including diamond sawblade cores and diamond sawblade segments. Diamond sawblade cores are circular steel plates, whether or not attached to non-steel plates, with slots. Diamond sawblade cores are manufactured principally, but not exclusively, from alloy steel. A diamond sawblade segment consists of a mixture of diamonds (whether natural or synthetic, and regardless of the quantity of diamonds) and metal powders (including, but not limited to, iron, cobalt, nickel, tungsten carbide) that are formed together into a solid shape (from generally, but not limited to, a heating and pressing process). Sawblades with diamonds directly attached to the core with a resin or electroplated bond, which thereby do not contain a diamond segment, are not included within the scope of the order. Diamond sawblades and/or sawblade cores with a thickness of less than 0.025 inches, or with a thickness greater than 1.1 inches, are excluded from the scope of the order. Circular steel plates that have a cutting edge of non-diamond material, such as external teeth that protrude from the outer diameter of the plate, whether or not finished, are excluded from the scope of the order. Diamond sawblade cores with a Rockwell C hardness of less than 25 are excluded from the scope of the order. Diamond sawblades and/or diamond segment(s) with diamonds that predominantly have a mesh size number greater than 240 (such as 250 or 260) are excluded from the scope of the order. Merchandise subject to the order is typically imported under heading 8202.39.00.00 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). When packaged together as a set for retail sale with an item that is separately classified under headings 8202 to 8205 of the HTSUS, diamond sawblades or parts thereof may be imported under heading 8206.00.00.00 of the HTSUS. On October 11, 2011, the Department included the 6804.21.00.00 HTSUS classification number to the customs case reference file, pursuant to a request by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).4 The tariff classification is 4 See Diamond Sawblades and Parts Thereof from the Republic of Korea: Preliminary Results of VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:47 Dec 18, 2017 Jkt 244001 provided for convenience and customs purposes; however, the written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review For the reasons stated in the Initiation and Preliminary Results, we continue to find that Chengdu Huifeng New Material Technology Co., Ltd. is the successor-in-interest to Chengdu Huifeng Diamond Tools Co., Ltd. for purposes of determining antidumping duty liability under the antidumping duty order on diamond sawblades from the PRC.5 As a result of this determination, we find that Chengdu Huifeng New Material Technology Co., Ltd. is entitled to the cash deposit rate previously assigned to Chengdu Huifeng Diamond Tools Co., Ltd. in the most recently completed administrative review of the antidumping duty order on diamond sawblades from the PRC.6 Consequently, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to suspend liquidation of all shipments of subject merchandise exported by Chengdu Huifeng New Material Technology Co., Ltd., and entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of this notice in the Federal Register at 6.19 percent, which is the current antidumping duty cash deposit rate for Chengdu Huifeng Diamond Tools Co., Ltd.7 This cash deposit requirement shall remain in effect until further notice.

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by the order are all finished circular 
sawblades, whether slotted or not, with a working part that is 
comprised of a diamond segment or segments, and parts thereof, 
regardless of specification or size, except as specifically excluded 
below. Within the scope of the order are semifinished diamond 
sawblades, including diamond sawblade cores and diamond sawblade 
segments. Diamond sawblade cores are circular steel plates, whether or 
not attached to non-steel plates, with slots. Diamond sawblade cores 
are manufactured principally, but not exclusively, from alloy steel. A 
diamond sawblade segment consists of a mixture of diamonds (whether 
natural or synthetic, and regardless of the quantity of diamonds) and 
metal powders (including, but not limited to, iron, cobalt, nickel, 
tungsten carbide) that are formed together into a solid shape (from 
generally, but not limited to, a heating and pressing process).
    Sawblades with diamonds directly attached to the core with a resin 
or electroplated bond, which thereby do not contain a diamond segment, 
are not included within the scope of the order. Diamond sawblades and/
or sawblade cores with a thickness of less than 0.025 inches, or with a 
thickness greater than 1.1 inches, are excluded from the scope of the 
order. Circular steel plates that have a cutting edge of non-diamond 
material, such as external teeth that protrude from the outer diameter 
of the plate, whether or not finished, are excluded from the scope of 
the order. Diamond sawblade cores with a Rockwell C hardness of less 
than 25 are excluded from the scope of the order. Diamond sawblades 
and/or diamond segment(s) with diamonds that predominantly have a mesh 
size number greater than 240 (such as 250 or 260) are excluded from the 
scope of the order. Merchandise subject to the order is typically 
imported under heading 8202.39.00.00 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule 
of the United States (HTSUS). When packaged together as a set for 
retail sale with an item that is separately classified under headings 
8202 to 8205 of the HTSUS, diamond sawblades or parts thereof may be 
imported under heading 8206.00.00.00 of the HTSUS. On October 11, 2011, 
the Department included the 6804.21.00.00 HTSUS classification number

Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review

    For the reasons stated in the Initiation and Preliminary Results, 
we continue to find that Chengdu Huifeng New Material Technology Co., 
Ltd. is the successor-in-interest to Chengdu Huifeng Diamond Tools Co., 
Ltd. for purposes of determining antidumping duty liability under the 
antidumping duty order on diamond sawblades from the PRC.\5\ As a 
result of this determination, we find that Chengdu Huifeng New Material 
Technology Co., Ltd. is entitled to the cash deposit rate previously 
assigned to Chengdu Huifeng Diamond Tools Co., Ltd. in the most 
recently completed administrative review of the antidumping duty order 
on diamond sawblades from the PRC.\6\ Consequently, the Department will 
instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to suspend liquidation of 
all shipments of subject merchandise exported by Chengdu Huifeng New 
Material Technology Co., Ltd., and entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of this 
notice in the Federal Register at 6.19 percent, which is the current 
antidumping duty cash deposit rate for Chengdu Huifeng Diamond Tools 
Co., Ltd.\7\ This cash deposit requirement shall remain in effect until 
further notice.
