Abstract of Proposed Collection The Secretary of State is authorized to issue U.S. passports under 8 U.S.C. 1104, 22 U.S.C. 211a et seq, and Executive Order 11295 (August 5, 1966). Department regulations provide that individuals whose valid or potentially valid U.S. passports were lost or stolen must make a report of the lost or stolen passport to the Department of State before they receive a new passport so that the lost or stolen passport can be invalidated (22 CFR parts 50 and 51). The Enhanced Border Security and Visa Entry Reform Act of 2002 (8 U.S.C. 1737) requires the Department of State to collect accurate information on lost or stolen U.S. passports and to enter that information into a data system. Form DS–64 collects information identifying the person who held the lost or stolen passport and describing the circumstances under which the passport was lost or stolen. As required by the cited authorities, we use the information collected to accurately identify the passport that must be invalidated and to make a record of the circumstances surrounding the lost or stolen passport. False statements made knowingly or willfully on passport forms, in affidavits, or other supporting documents, are punishable by fine and/ or imprisonment under U.S. law. (18 U.S.C. 1001, 1542–1544). Methodology Passport applicants can submit their form electronically on www.travel.state.gov or call the National Passport Information Center at 1–877– 487–2778. Applicants can also download the form from the internet or obtain one at any Passport Agency or Acceptance Facility. Barry J.

Therefore, imports of eligible products from Eswatini qualify for the textile and apparel benefits provided under the AGOA.

DATES: This notice is applicable on July 3, 2018.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The AGOA (Title I of the Trade and Development Act of 2000, Public Law 106–200, as amended) provides preferential tariff treatment for imports of certain textile and apparel products of beneficiary sub-Saharan African countries. The textile and apparel trade sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:07 Jul 02, 2018 Jkt 244001 benefits under AGOA are available to imports of eligible products from countries that the President designates as ‘‘beneficiary sub-Saharan African countries,’’ provided that these countries: (1) Have adopted an effective visa system and related procedures to prevent the unlawful transshipment of textile and apparel articles and the use of counterfeit documents in connection with shipment of such articles; and (2) have implemented and follow, or are making substantial progress towards implementing and following, certain customs procedures that assist the U.S. Customs and Border Protection in verifying the origin of the products. In Proclamation 9687 dated December 22, 2017 (82 FR 61414), the President designated Swaziland (now known as Eswatini) as a ‘‘beneficiary sub-Saharan African country’’ and proclaimed, for the purposes of section 112(c) of AGOA, that Swaziland (now known as Eswatini) should be considered a lesser developed beneficiary sub-Saharan African country. Based on the actions Eswatini has taken, the United States Trade Representative has determined that Eswatini has satisfied the two requirements for eligibility for textile and apparel benefits under AGOA. In Proclamation 7350 of October 2, 2000, the President authorized the United States Trade Representative to perform the function of determining whether eligible sub-Saharan countries have met the two requirements described above. The President directed the United States Trade Representative to announce any such determinations in the Federal Register and to implement them through modifications in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS). Accordingly, pursuant to the authority vested in the United States Trade Representative in Proclamation 7350, U.S. note 7(a) to subchapter II of chapter 98 of the HTS, is modified by inserting ‘‘Eswatini’’ in alphabetical sequence in the list of countries, and U.S. notes 1 and 2(d) to subchapter XIX of chapter 98 of the HTS are modified to add in numerical sequence, in the list of designated sub-Saharan African countries, the name ‘‘Eswatini,’’ in alphabetical sequence and to delete therefrom ‘‘Kingdom of Swaziland’’. The foregoing modifications to the HTS are effective with respect to articles entered for consumption, or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, on or after the effective date of this notice. Imports claiming preferential tariff treatment under the AGOA for entries of textile and apparel articles should ensure that those entries meet the PO 00000 Frm 00138 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 applicable visa requirements. See 66 FR 7837 (January 25, 2001). Presidential Proclamation 6969 of January 27, 1997 (62 FR 4415), authorizes the United States Trade Representative to exercise the authority provided to the President under section 604 of the Trade Act (19 U.S.C. 2483) to embody rectifications, technical or conforming changes, or similar modifications in the HTS. Pursuant to the delegated authority vested in the United States Trade Representative in Proclamation 6969, general notes 4(a) and 16(a) to the HTS are each modified by deleting ‘‘Swaziland’’ and by inserting in alphabetical sequence in such notes ‘‘Eswatini’’, in order to reflect the recent change in name of Swaziland to Eswatini.
