Abstract: One of the purposes of the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA, the Act) is to provide for the repatriation of Native American human remains and funerary objects, sacred objects, and objects of cultural patrimony (‘‘cultural items’’) to lineal descendants, and affiliated Indian tribes and Native Hawaiian organizations. The Secretary of the Interior has several responsibilities under the Act, which include promulgating regulations to carry out the Act and publishing notices in the Federal Register. Under NAGPRA and its implementing regulations, a museum must compile an inventory of Native American human remains and associated funerary objects under its control and, to the extent possible based on the information it possesses, identify the geographical and cultural affiliation of the human remains and funerary objects. Inventories must be completed in consultation with Indian tribal government and Native Hawaiian organization officials, and traditional religious leaders. The NPS National NAGPRA Program, on behalf of the Secretary, collects information pertinent for determining the cultural affiliation and geographical origin of the human remains and associated funerary objects, VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:38 Mar 23, 2018 Jkt 244001 including descriptions, acquisition data, and consultation concerning the human remains and objects, and it makes this information publicly available. The NPS National NAGPRA Program also provides sample inventories to assist museums. The Act and its implementing regulations require a museum to describe in a summary its holding or collection of Native American objects that might be unassociated funerary objects, sacred objects, or objects of cultural patrimony. The summary is followed by consultation on the identity and cultural affiliation of objects with Indian tribal government and Native Hawaiian organization officials, and traditional religious leaders. The NPS National NAGPRA Program, on behalf of the Secretary, collects information pertinent for determining the cultural affiliation and identity of objects (as cultural items), including descriptions, acquisition data, and parties invited to consult about the objects, and it makes this information publicly available. The NPS National NAGPRA Program also provides sample summaries to assist museums. After the expiration of the statutory deadlines for completing an inventory and a summary, if a museum receives a new holding or discovers an unreported current holding, or has control of cultural items that are, or are likely to be, culturally affiliated with a newly federally recognized Indian tribe, the PO 00000 Frm 00024 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 museum must update or amend its inventory or summary. The NPS National NAGPRA Program, on behalf of the Secretary, collects information pertinent for determining the cultural affiliation and geographical origin of the human remains and associated funerary objects (in the inventory update), or for determining the cultural affiliation and identity of objects as cultural items (in the summary update), and it makes this information publicly available. If a museum determines the cultural affiliation of human remains and associated funerary objects in an inventory, the museum must draft and send a written notice of its determination to the affected Indian tribes or Native Hawaiian organizations, and copy the NPS National NAGPRA Program. The NPS National NAGPRA Program, in turn, publishes this notice of inventory completion in the Federal Register on behalf of the Secretary. Similarly, a museum must draft and send a notice of inventory completion to the NPS National NAGPRA Program for publication in the Federal Register where human remains determined by the museum to be culturally unidentifiable are claimed by an Indian tribe or Native Hawaiian organization having a geographical affiliation to the human remains. The information in a notice of inventory completion collected by the NPS National NAGPRA Program is based on the information in the museum’s completed inventory. The E:\FR\FM\26MRN1.SGM 26MRN1 sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES 12962 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 58 / Monday, March 26, 2018 / Notices NPS National NAGPRA Program provides templates for notices of inventory completion to assist museums in drafting these notices. After receiving a request from an Indian tribe or Native Hawaiian organization to repatriate an object described in a summary, if a museum determines that the object being requested is an unassociated funerary object, a sacred object, or an object of cultural patrimony, and is culturally affiliated with the requestor, the museum drafts and sends a notice of intent to repatriate cultural items to the NPS National NAGPRA Program, which publishes the notice in the Federal Register. The information in a notice of intent to repatriate cultural items collected by the NPS National NAGPRA Program is based on the information in the museum’s summary, and is supplemented by information pertinent to the identity and cultural affiliation of the cultural item. The NPS National NAGPRA Program provides a template for a notice of intent to repatriate cultural items to assist museums in drafting this notice. A museum that revises its decision in a way that changes the number or cultural affiliation of cultural items listed in a notice that was previously published in the Federal Register must draft and send a correction notice to the NPS National NAGPRA Program, which publishes the correction notice in the Federal Register. The NPS National NAGPRA Program provides a template for a correction notice to assist museums in drafting this notice. The NPS National NAGPRA Program collects and makes publicly available the above described information in order to ensure the protection of the constitutional due process rights of lineal descendants, Indian tribes and Native Hawaiian organizations related to property. As evidence of a museum’s compliance with the Act, the information collected by the NPS National NAGPRA Program serves the reporting museum because only where a museum repatriates a cultural item in good faith pursuant to the Act will it be immune from liability for claims by an aggrieved party or for claims of breach of fiduciary duty, public trust, or violations of state law that are inconsistent with the provisions of NAGPRA. Authorities: The authorities for this action are the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA; 25 U.S.C. 3001 et seq.), NAGPRA Regulations (43 CFR part 10), VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:38 Mar 23, 2018 Jkt 244001 and the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.).

The public record of Investigation No. 731–TA–1279 (Final) may be viewed on the Commission’s electronic docket (EDIS) at https:// edis.usitc.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background.—In August 2016, the Commission issued its unanimous determination in Hydrofluorocarbon Blends and Components from China, Inv. No. 731–TA–1279 (Final), USITC Pub. 4629 (August 2016). Applying the five-factor finished/semi-finished product analysis, the Commission found that there were two domestic like products, and consequently two PO 00000 Frm 00025 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 domestic industries, one comprised of domestic producers of HFC components and the other of domestic producers of HFC blends. The Commission then determined that the domestic industry producing HFC blends was materially injured by reason of subject imports of HFC blends, whereas the domestic industry producing HFC components was not materially injured or threatened with material injury by reason of subject imports of HFC components. Petitioners appealed the determination to the U.S. Court of International Trade (‘‘CIT’’), challenging the Commission’s determination that there were two domestic like products consisting of HFC blends and HFC components. The CIT remanded two issues to the Commission and affirmed all other aspects of the Commission’s like product determination. Arkema, Inc. v. United States, Court No. 16–00179, Slip. Op. 18–12 (Ct. Int’l Trade Feb. 16, 2018). Participation in the proceeding.— Only those persons who were interested parties that participated in the investigations (i.e., persons listed on the Commission Secretary’s service list) and also parties to the appeal may participate in the remand proceedings. Such persons need not make any additional notice of appearances or applications with the Commission to participate in the remand proceedings, unless they are adding new individuals to the list of persons entitled to receive business proprietary information (‘‘BPI’’) under administrative protective order. BPI referred to during the remand proceedings will be governed, as appropriate, by the administrative protective order issued in the investigation. The Secretary will maintain a service list containing the names and addresses of all persons or their representatives who are parties to the remand proceedings, and the Secretary will maintain a separate list of those authorized to receive BPI under the administrative protective order during the remand proceedings. Written Submissions.—The Commission is not reopening the record and will not accept the submission of new factual information for the record. The Commission will permit the parties to file comments concerning how the Commission could best comply with the Court’s remand instructions. The comments must be based solely on the information in the Commission’s record. The Commission will reject submissions containing additional factual information or arguments pertaining to issues other than those on which the Court has remanded this matter.

    Abstract: One of the purposes of the Native American Graves 
Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA, the Act) is to provide for the 
repatriation of Native American human remains and funerary objects, 
sacred objects, and objects of cultural patrimony (``cultural items'') 
to lineal descendants, and affiliated Indian tribes and Native Hawaiian 
organizations. The Secretary of the Interior has several 
responsibilities under the Act, which include promulgating regulations 
to carry out the Act and publishing notices in the Federal Register.
    Under NAGPRA and its implementing regulations, a museum must 
compile an inventory of Native American human remains and associated 
funerary objects under its control and, to the extent possible based on 
the information it possesses, identify the geographical and cultural 
affiliation of the human remains and funerary objects. Inventories must 
be completed in consultation with Indian tribal government and Native 
Hawaiian organization officials, and traditional religious leaders. The 
NPS National NAGPRA Program, on behalf of the Secretary, collects 
information pertinent for determining the cultural affiliation and 
geographical origin of the human remains and associated funerary 
objects, including descriptions, acquisition data, and consultation 
concerning the human remains and objects, and it makes this information 
publicly available. The NPS National NAGPRA Program also provides 
sample inventories to assist museums.
    The Act and its implementing regulations require a museum to 
describe in a summary its holding or collection of Native American 
objects that might be unassociated funerary objects, sacred objects, or 
objects of cultural patrimony. The summary is followed by consultation 
on the identity and cultural affiliation of objects with Indian tribal 
government and Native Hawaiian organization officials, and traditional 
religious leaders. The NPS National NAGPRA Program, on behalf of the 
Secretary, collects information pertinent for determining the cultural 
affiliation and identity of objects (as cultural items), including 
descriptions, acquisition data, and parties invited to consult about 
the objects, and it makes this information publicly available. The NPS 
National NAGPRA Program also provides sample summaries to assist 
museums.
    After the expiration of the statutory deadlines for completing an 
inventory and a summary, if a museum receives a new holding or 
discovers an unreported current holding, or has control of cultural 
items that are, or are likely to be, culturally affiliated with a newly 
federally recognized Indian tribe, the museum must update or amend its 
inventory or summary. The NPS National NAGPRA Program, on behalf of the 
Secretary, collects information pertinent for determining the cultural 
affiliation and geographical origin of the human remains and associated 
funerary objects (in the inventory update), or for determining the 
cultural affiliation and identity of objects as cultural items (in the 
summary update), and it makes this information publicly available.
    If a museum determines the cultural affiliation of human remains 
and associated funerary objects in an inventory, the museum must draft 
and send a written notice of its determination to the affected Indian 
tribes or Native Hawaiian organizations, and copy the NPS National 
NAGPRA Program. The NPS National NAGPRA Program, in turn, publishes 
this notice of inventory completion in the Federal Register on behalf 
of the Secretary. Similarly, a museum must draft and send a notice of 
inventory completion to the NPS National NAGPRA Program for publication 
in the Federal Register where human remains determined by the museum to 
be culturally unidentifiable are claimed by an Indian tribe or Native 
Hawaiian organization having a geographical affiliation to the human 
remains. The information in a notice of inventory completion collected 
by the NPS National NAGPRA Program is based on the information in the 
museum's completed inventory. The

[[Page 12962]]

NPS National NAGPRA Program provides templates for notices of inventory 
completion to assist museums in drafting these notices.
    After receiving a request from an Indian tribe or Native Hawaiian 
organization to repatriate an object described in a summary, if a 
museum determines that the object being requested is an unassociated 
funerary object, a sacred object, or an object of cultural patrimony, 
and is culturally affiliated with the requestor, the museum drafts and 
sends a notice of intent to repatriate cultural items to the NPS 
National NAGPRA Program, which publishes the notice in the Federal 
Register. The information in a notice of intent to repatriate cultural 
items collected by the NPS National NAGPRA Program is based on the 
information in the museum's summary, and is supplemented by information 
pertinent to the identity and cultural affiliation of the cultural 
item. The NPS National NAGPRA Program provides a template for a notice 
of intent to repatriate cultural items to assist museums in drafting 
this notice.
    A museum that revises its decision in a way that changes the number 
or cultural affiliation of cultural items listed in a notice that was 
previously published in the Federal Register must draft and send a 
correction notice to the NPS National NAGPRA Program, which publishes 
the correction notice in the Federal Register. The NPS National NAGPRA 
Program provides a template for a correction notice to assist museums 
in drafting this notice.
    The NPS National NAGPRA Program collects and makes publicly 
available the above described information in order to ensure the 
protection of the constitutional due process rights of lineal 
descendants, Indian tribes and Native Hawaiian organizations related to 
property. As evidence of a museum's compliance with the Act, the 
information collected by the NPS National NAGPRA Program serves the 
reporting museum because only where a museum repatriates a cultural 
item in good faith pursuant to the Act will it be immune from liability 
for claims by an aggrieved party or for claims of breach of fiduciary 
duty, public trust, or violations of state law that are inconsistent 
with the provisions of NAGPRA.
    Authorities: The authorities for this action are the Native 
American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA; 25 U.S.C. 3001 
et seq.), NAGPRA Regulations (43 CFR part 10), and the Paperwork 
Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.).
