The U.S. Trade Representative is allocating 10,300 MTRV of refined sugar to Canada, 2,954 MTRV to Mexico, and 7,090 MTRV of refined sugar to be administered on a first-come, firstserved basis. Imports of all specialty sugar will be administered on a first-come, firstserved basis in five tranches. The Secretary has announced that the total in-quota quantity of specialty sugar will be the 1,656 MTRV included in the WTO minimum plus an additional 170,000 MTRV. The first tranche of 1,656 MTRV will open October 1, 2018. All types of specialty sugars are eligible for entry under this tranche. The second tranche of 50,000 MTRV will open on October 10, 2018. The third tranche of 50,000 MTRV each will open on January 23, 2019. The fourth and fifth tranches, both of 35,000 MTRV, will open on April 17, 2019 and July 17, 2019, respectively. The second, third, fourth, and fifth tranches will be reserved for organic sugar and other specialty sugars not currently produced commercially in the United States or reasonably available from domestic sources. With respect to the in-quota quantity of 64,709 metric tons (conversion factor: 1 metric ton = 1.10231125 short tons) of the TRQ for imports of certain sugarcontaining products maintained under Additional U.S. Note 8 to Chapter 17 of the HTS, the U.S. Trade Representative is allocating 59,250 metric tons to Canada. The remainder, 5,459 metric tons, of the in-quota quantity is available for other countries on a firstcome, first-served basis. Refined and specialty sugar and sugar-containing products for FY 2019 TRQs may enter the United States as of October 1, 2018. Robert Lighthizer, United States Trade Representative.

Please identify the relevant collection of information by referring to its OMB Control Number. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Field Study of Newer Generation Heavy Vehicle Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) Systems. OMB Control Number: Not assigned. Type of Request: New Information Collection. Abstract: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is assessing the benefits of crash avoidance technologies for heavy trucks that include Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) to prevent fatalities, injuries, and property damage in crashes involving heavy vehicles. Previous studies have investigated crash problem size, economic cost, and preliminary safety benefits concerning these systems. The underlying methods of these studies have included test track evaluations, objective test procedures, technology field demonstrations, and ‘‘naturalistic’’ studies. As both of the major AEB system suppliers have released new products in the second half of 2017, NHTSA is interested in the real world performance of these new systems, which are designed to address the shortcomings of the previous generation of AEB systems. These systems have been designed to offer improved threat detection and new features such as stationary object braking. Additionally, a new product called Detroit AssuranceTM was released in 2016 for Freightliner trucks by Detroit Diesel Corporation. This system shares many features with the OnGuard and Wingman® products including advanced emergency braking (AEB), forward collision warnings (FCW), and adaptive cruise control (ACC). Affected Public: Commercial vehicle drivers who are assigned a single, specific commercial vehicle that is equipped with the eligible technologies. Trucking fleets (approximately 7–10) will be contacted first to see if they have trucks equipped with the technologies and would be willing to have their drivers participate in the study.
