Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 154 / Thursday, August 9, 2018 / Notices sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) is required to document and identify any potential risks associated with collecting this information. There is no assurance of confidentiality provided to the respondents. The burden estimates provided in response to Item 12 above are based upon definitive proposals reported by DHS and its Components to the Federal Procurement Data System (FPDS) for Fiscal Year 2016. No program changes occurred and there have been no changes to the information being collected. However, the burden was adjusted to reflect an agency adjustment increase of 103,600 in the number of respondents within DHS for Fiscal Year 2016, as well as an increase in the average hourly wage rate. In addition, the average response per respondent went from 7 to 3.5 per response, a difference of 3.5 hours. The change is a result of the DHS Heads of Contracting Activities’ reassessment of the response time required for each of the applicable clauses. This is an extension of a currently approved collection, 1600–0005. DHS previously published this ICR in the Federal Register on Tuesday, March 13, 2018 at 83 FR 10865 for a 60-day public comment period, and is soliciting public comment for another 30 days. OMB is particularly interested in comments which: 1. Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information 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 of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; 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 through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submissions of responses.

The SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00059 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 complaint, as supplemented, alleges violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, 19 U.S.C. 1337, based upon the importation into the United States, the sale for importation, and the sale within the United States after importation of certain jump rope systems by reason of infringement of certain claims of U.S. Patent Nos. 7,789,809 and 8,136,208. The notice of investigation named one respondent: Suzhou Everise Fitness Co., Ltd. of Jiangsu, China (‘‘Respondent’’). The Office of Unfair Import Investigations (‘‘OUII’’) also was named as a party to the investigation. The complaint and notice of investigation were served on Respondent on April 13, 2018. However, Respondent did not respond to the complaint or notice of investigation. On May 31, 2018, Complainant filed an amended motion for an order to show cause directing Respondent to demonstrate why it should not be found in default for failing to respond to the complaint and notice of investigation, or otherwise participate in the investigation. On June 6, 2018, OUII filed a response, supporting the motion. No other responses were filed.

On July 10, 2018, the ALJ issued the subject ID (Order No. 6), finding Respondent in default under Commission Rule 210.16 (19 CFR 210.16) and terminating the proceedings before the ALJ in their entirety.

In connection with the final disposition of this investigation, the Commission may (1) issue an order that could result in the exclusion of the subject articles from entry into the United States, and/or (2) issue a cease and desist order that could result in Respondent being required to cease and desist from engaging in unfair acts in the importation and sale of such articles. Accordingly, the Commission is interested in receiving written submissions that address the form of remedy, if any, that should be ordered.
