These two sample surveys provide widely used measures of construction activity, including the principal economic indicators New Residential Construction and New Home Sales. Data from the BPS and SOC are also used by the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) in the calculation of estimates of the Residential Fixed Investment portion of the Nation’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP). In addition, data from the BPS are used by the Census Bureau in the calculation of annual population estimates; these estimates are widely used by government agencies to allocate funding and other resources to local governments. The questions on Form C–411 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. We do not plan any changes to the information we collect on the C– 411 forms. The appropriate form 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. This is based on information from a variety of sources including survey respondents, regional councils and the Census Bureau’s Geography Division which keeps abreast of changes in corporate status. We use the information to verify the existence of new permit systems or changes to existing systems. Based on the information, the Census Bureau adds new permit-issuing places to the universe, delete places no longer issuing permits, and makes changes to the universe to reflect those places that have merged. Failure to maintain the universe of permit-issuing places would result in deficient samples and inaccurate statistics. This in turn jeopardizes the accuracy of the above mentioned economic indicators. These indicators are closely monitored by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and other economic policy makers because of the sensitivity of the housing industry to changes in interest rates. Affected Public: State, local or tribal government. Frequency: On occasion. VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:39 Mar 05, 2018 Jkt 244001 Respondent’s Obligation: Voluntary.

that revocation of the AD orders on lined paper from India and China 
would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping, and that 
revocation of the CVD order on lined paper from India would likely lead 
to continuation or recurrence of countervailable subsidies.\6\

products commonly known as ``fine business paper,'' ``parchment 
paper,'' and ``letterhead''), whether or not containing a lined header 
or decorative lines;
     Stenographic pads (``steno pads''), Gregg ruled (``Gregg 
ruling'' consists of a single- or double-margin vertical ruling line 
down the center of the page. For a six-inch by nine-inch stenographic

    Also excluded from the scope of these orders are the following 
trademarked products:
     FlyTM lined paper products: A notebook, 
notebook organizer, loose or glued note paper, with papers that are 
printed with infrared reflective inks and readable only by a 
FlyTM pen-top computer. The product must bear the valid 
trademark FlyTM (products found to be bearing an invalidly 
licensed or used trademark are not excluded from the scope).
     ZwipesTM: A notebook or notebook organizer made 
with a blended polyolefin writing surface as the cover and pocket 
surfaces of the notebook, suitable for writing using a specially-
developed permanent marker and erase system (known as a 
ZwipesTM pen). This system allows the marker portion to mark 
the writing surface with a permanent ink. The eraser portion of the 
marker dispenses a solvent capable of solubilizing the permanent ink 
allowing the ink to be removed. The product must bear the valid 
trademark ZwipesTM (products found to be bearing an 
invalidly licensed or used trademark are not excluded from the scope).
     FiveStar[supreg]AdvanceTM: A notebook or 
notebook organizer bound by a continuous spiral, or helical, wire and 
with plastic front and rear covers made of a blended polyolefin plastic 
material joined by 300 denier polyester, coated on the backside with 
PVC (poly vinyl chloride) coating, and extending the entire length of 
the spiral or helical wire. The polyolefin plastic covers are of 
specific thickness; front cover is 0.019 inches (within normal 
manufacturing tolerances) and rear cover is 0.028 inches (within normal 
manufacturing tolerances). Integral with the stitching that attaches 
the polyester spine covering, is captured both ends of a 1'' wide 
elastic fabric band. This band is located 2\3/8\'' from the top of the 
front plastic cover and provides pen or pencil storage. Both ends of 
the spiral wire are cut and then bent backwards to overlap with the 
previous coil but specifically outside the coil diameter but inside the 
polyester covering. During construction, the polyester covering is sewn 
to the front and rear covers face to face (outside to outside) so that 
when the book is closed, the stitching is concealed from the outside. 
Both free ends (the ends not sewn to the cover and back) are stitched 
with a turned edge construction. The flexible polyester material forms 
a covering over the spiral wire to protect it and provide a comfortable 
grip on the product. The product must bear the valid trademarks 
FiveStar[supreg]AdvanceTM (products found to be bearing an 
invalidly licensed or used trademark are not excluded from the scope).
     FiveStar FlexTM: A notebook, a notebook 
organizer, or binder with plastic polyolefin front and rear covers 
joined by 300 denier polyester spine cover extending the entire length 
of the spine and bound by a 3-ring plastic fixture. The polyolefin 
plastic covers are of a specific thickness; front cover is 0.019 inches 
(within normal manufacturing tolerances) and rear cover is 0.028 inches 
(within normal manufacturing tolerances). During construction, the 
polyester covering is sewn to the front cover face to face (outside to 
outside) so that when the book is closed, the stitching is concealed 
from the outside. During construction, the polyester cover is sewn to 
the back cover with the outside of the polyester spine cover to the 
inside back cover. Both free ends (the ends not sewn to the cover and 
back) are stitched with a turned edge construction. Each ring within 
the fixture is comprised of a flexible strap portion that snaps into a 
stationary post which forms a closed binding ring. The ring fixture is 
riveted with six metal rivets and sewn to the back plastic cover and is 
specifically positioned on the outside back cover. The product must 
bear the valid trademark FiveStar FlexTM (products found to 
be bearing an invalidly licensed or used trademark are not excluded 
from the scope).

Continuation of the Orders

    As a result of the determinations by Commerce and the ITC that 
revocation of the AD orders and the CVD order would likely lead to 
continuation or recurrence of dumping and countervailable subsidies and 
material injury to an industry in the United States, pursuant to 
section 751(d)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(a), Commerce hereby 
orders the continuation of the AD orders on lined paper from India and 
China and the CVD order on lined paper from India.
    U.S. Customs and Border Protection will continue to collect AD and 
CVD cash deposits at the rates in effect at the time of entry for all 
imports of subject merchandise. The effective date of continuation of 
these orders will be the date of publication in the Federal Register of 
this notice of continuation. Pursuant to section 751(c)(2) of the Act, 
Commerce intends to initiate the next five-year reviews of these orders 
not later than 30 days prior to the fifth anniversary of the effective 
date of continuation.
    These five-year (sunset) reviews and this notice are in accordance 
with sections 751(c) of the Act and published pursuant to section 
777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(f)(4).

    Dated: February 14, 2018.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
