Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 104 / Wednesday, May 30, 2018 / Notices Chinese origin, and many significant processing operations occur in China, the Chinese operations require less skill and precision, and the product remains inoperable when imported into the United States. In contrast, the final assembly of the product, 15 out of 25 operational sequences of which are performed in the United States, requires a good deal more skill, precision and technical expertise. Many of the critical operations involved in completing the product, such as installing the work platforms’ software, manufacturing the ‘‘brain’’ of the system and attaching the modules to the product, are also performed in the United States. More importantly, 40 percent of the remaining components of the electric scissor lifts are of U.S.-origin. This includes the three control modules, which act as the ‘‘brain’’ of the machine, without which the machine cannot function; batteries; the platform control box; and, the ground control panel. We also recognize that the software contained in the three modules is completely developed and programmed in the United States. In addition, significant operations to produce the product are performed in the United States, such as sophisticated testing, inspection, calibration and preparation of the product. Consequently, we find that the imported partially assembled R Series lifts are substantially transformed as a result of the assembly operations performed in the United States to produce the fully functional and operational electric scissor lifts. Based on the information presented, it is our opinion that the country of origin of the RS Scissor Lift is the United States. sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES HOLDING: Based on the facts provided, the finished electric scissor lifts will be considered a product of the United States for purposes of U.S. Government procurement. Notice of this final determination will be given in the Federal Register, as required by 19 C.F.R. § 177.29. Any party-at-interest other than the party which requested this final determination may request, pursuant to 19 C.F.R. § 177.31, that CBP reexamine the matter anew and issue a new final determination. Pursuant to 19 C.F.R. § 177.30, any party-at-interest may, within 30 days of publication of the Federal Register Notice referenced above, seek judicial review of this final determination before the Court of International Trade.

In accordance with LEOSA, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued DHS Directive and Instruction Manual 257–01, Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act (Nov. 5, 2009).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: TSA published a Federal Register notice, 
with a 60-day comment period soliciting comments, of the following 
collection of information on January 26, 2018, 83 FR 4502.

Comments Invited

    In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 
3501 et seq.), an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is 
not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it 
displays a valid OMB control number. The ICR documentation will be 
available at http://www.reginfo.gov upon its submission to OMB. 
Therefore, in preparation for OMB review and approval of the following 
information collection, TSA is soliciting comments to--
    (1) Evaluate whether the proposed information requirement is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
    (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden;
    (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to 
be collected; and
    (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those 
who are to respond, including using appropriate automated, electronic, 
mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms 
of information technology.
    Consistent with the requirements of Executive Order (E.O.) 13771,

Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda, TSA is also requesting comments 
on the extent to which this request for information could be modified

local civilian personnel (primarily, law enforcement agencies that are 
responsible for the security at airports throughout the United States) 
participate under agency-specific cooperative agreements with TSA's 
National Explosives Detection Canine Team Program. This information 
collection captures ratings and written comments and feedback from 
students about the quality of the referenced training.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Because CTC is the sole DHS source for all TSA-trained 
canines and handlers, the TSA has partnered with local law 
enforcement agencies (Legacy) under a reimbursement agreement to 
train students and canines and pair the canine teams through annual 
evaluations. To ensure standardization of all TSA student training, 
the civilian students attend the same courses as TSA students. This 
may include pairing civilian students with an explosives-only canine 
in the CTC Explosives Detection Canine Handler Course; pairing 
civilian students with trained canines in the Passenger Screening 
Canine Handler Course; or enrolling students previously certified by

so ensures all students with the TSA's National Explosives Detection

    TSA is revising the information collection to standardize all Level 
1 course evaluations across TSA. A Level 1 evaluation is a measure of 
the degree to which participants react to a learning activity. In 
addition, TSA is removing from the form all personally identifiable 
information (PII) as well as course code and location, as these 
elements are not necessary to the collection. Finally, TSA is revising 
the name of the collection from ``TSA OTWE Canine Training and 
Evaluation Branch End of Course Level 1 Evaluation'' to ``TSA End of 
Course Level 1 Evaluation--Instructor-Led Classroom Training.''
    Number of Respondents: 79.
    Estimated Annual Burden Hours: An estimated 39.5 hours annually.
