DATES: To ensure consideration, written comments must be submitted on or before February 20, 2018. ADDRESSES: Direct all written comments to Jennifer Jessup, Departmental Paperwork Clearance Officer, Department of Commerce, Room 6616, 14th and Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20230 (or via the internet at PRAcomments@doc.gov).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: I. Abstract The Census Bureau plans to request a three-year extension of a currently approved collection of the Form C–411, Survey of Residential Building or Zoning Permit Systems. The Census Bureau produces statistics used to monitor activity in the large and VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:36 Dec 19, 2017 Jkt 244001 dynamic construction industry. These statistics help state and local governments and the Federal government, as well as private industry, to analyze this important sector of the economy. The Census Bureau uses the Form C– 411 to obtain information needed to update the universe of permit-issuing places from state and local building and zoning officials. Questions on the form pertain to the legal requirements for issuing building or zoning permits in the local jurisdictions. Information is obtained on such items as geographic coverage and types of construction for which permits are issued. The universe of permit-issuing places is the sampling frame for the Building Permits Survey (BPS) and the Survey of Construction (SOC). These two sample surveys provide widely used measures of construction activity, including the monthly Principal Federal Economic Indicators Housing Units Authorized by Building Permits and Housing Starts. II. Method of Collection One of three variants of the Form C– 411 is sent to a jurisdiction when the Census Bureau has reason to believe that a new permit system has been established or an existing one has changed, based on information the Census Bureau obtains from a variety of sources including survey respondents and regional planning councils. Staff in the Census Bureau’s Geography Division also monitor changes in corporate status, which indicates if a place is incorporated. Responses rates for the Form C–411 typically approach 85 percent. There are three versions of the form: • C–411(V) for verification of coverage for jurisdictions with existing permit systems • C–411(M) for municipalities where a new permit system may have been established • C–411(C) for counties where new permit systems may have been established. III. Data OMB Number: 0607–0350. Form Number: C–411(V), C–411(M), and C–411(C). Type of Review: Regular submission. Affected Public: State and Local Governments. Estimated Number of Respondents: 2,000 per year. PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Estimated Time per Response: 15 minutes. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 500 hours. Estimated Total Annual Cost to Public: $0. (Per OMB requirements, this cost does not measure respondents’ time, but the indirect costs respondents may incur for such things as purchases of specialized software or hardware needed to report, or expenditures for accounting or records maintenance services required specifically by the collection.) Respondent’s Obligation: Voluntary. Legal Authority: Title 13, United States Code, Sections 131 and 182. IV. Request for Comments Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden (including hours and cost) of the proposed collection of information; (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 respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for OMB approval of this information collection; they also will become a matter of public record.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty (AD) order on certain crystalline silicon photovoltaic products (solar products) from Taiwan. The period of review (POR) is February 1, 2016, through January 31, 2017. This administrative review covers 11 exporters of the subject merchandise, including one mandatory respondent, Motech Industries, Inc. (Motech). The Department preliminarily determines that Motech made sales of subject merchandise at less than normal value during the POR. Additionally, we are rescinding this administrative review AGENCY: PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 with respect to 23 companies that timely withdrew their requests for administrative review.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On February 8, 2017, the Department notified interested parties of the opportunity to request an administrative review of orders, findings, or suspended investigations with anniversaries in February 2017, including the antidumping duty order on solar products from Taiwan.1 On February 28, 2017, SolarWorld Americas Inc. (the petitioner), as well as various exporters and exporters, requested that the Department conduct an administrative review of certain exporters covering the POR. On April 10, 2017, the Department published a notice initiating an AD administrative review of solar products from Taiwan covering 34 companies for the POR.2 In the Initiation Notice, the Department stated that if it limited the number of respondents for individual examination, it intended to select respondents based on volume data contained in responses to its quantity and value (Q&V) questionnaire.3 On April 10, 2017, the Department issued Q&V questionnaires to all 11 companies that appeared in the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data for import and merchandise value.4 We received Q&V questionnaire responses from 11 companies 5 named in the Initiation 1 See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity To Request Administrative Review, 82 FR 9709 (February 8, 2017). 2 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 82 FR 17188, 17189 (April 10, 2017) (Initiation Notice). 3 Id. at 17189. 4 The Department explained in the Initiation Notice that the units used to measure the imported quantities of solar cells and solar modules in the CBP data are in ‘‘piece’’ units, and it would not be meaningful to sum the number of imported solar cells and the number of imported solar modules in attempting to determine the largest Taiwan exporters of subject merchandise by volume. Id. Therefore, the Department stated that it would limit the number of Q&V questionnaires issued based on the import values in CBP data. Id. 5 The 11 companies that submitted a Q&V questionnaire response include: AU Optronics E:\FR\FM\20DEN1.SGM 20DEN1
