FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Requests for additional information or copies of the information collection instrument and instructions should be directed to Laurie Mease, Office of Textiles and Apparel, Telephone: 202– 482–2043, Email: Laurie.Mease@ trade.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract The United States and Peru negotiated the U.S.-Peru Trade Promotion Agreement (the ‘‘Agreement’’), which entered into force on February 1, 2009. Subject to the rules of origin in Annex 4.1 of the Agreement, and pursuant to the textile provisions of the Agreement, fabric, yarn, and fiber produced in Peru or the United States and traded between the two countries are entitled to dutyfree tariff treatment. Annex 3–B of the Agreement also lists specific fabrics, yarns, and fibers that the two countries agreed are not available in commercial quantities in a timely manner from producers in Peru or the United States. The items listed are commercially unavailable fabrics, yarns, and fibers. Articles containing these items are entitled to duty-free or preferential treatment despite containing inputs not produced in Peru or the United States. The list of commercially unavailable fabrics, yarns, and fibers may be changed pursuant to the commercial availability provision in Chapter 3, Article 3.3, Paragraphs 5–7 of the Agreement. Under this provision, interested entities from Peru or the United States have the right to request that a specific fabric, yarn, or fiber be added to, or removed from, the list of commercially unavailable fabrics, yarns, and fibers in Annex 3–B. Chapter 3, Article 3.3, paragraph 7 of the Agreement requires that the President publish procedures for parties to exercise the right to make these requests. The President delegated the responsibility for publishing the procedures and administering commercial availability requests to the Committee for the Implementation of Textile Agreements (‘‘CITA’’), which issues procedures and acts on requests through the U.S. Department of Commerce, Office of Textiles and Apparel (‘‘OTEXA’’) (See Proclamation No. 8341, 74 FR 4105, January 22, 2009). Interim procedures to implement these responsibilities were published in the Federal Register on August 14, 2009. (See Interim Procedures for Considering Requests Under the Commercial Availability Provision of the United VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:54 Mar 25, 2019 Jkt 247001 States—Peru Trade Promotion Agreement Implementation Act and Estimate of Burden for Collection of Information, 74 FR 41111, August 11, 2009). The intent of the U.S.-Peru TPA Commercial Availability Procedures is to foster the use of U.S. and regional products by implementing procedures that allow products to be placed on or removed from a product list, on a timely basis, and in a manner that is consistent with normal business practice. The procedures are intended to facilitate the transmission of requests; allow the market to indicate the availability of the supply of products that are the subject of requests; make available promptly, to interested entities and the public, information regarding the requests for products and offers received for those products; ensure wide participation by interested entities and parties; allow for careful review and consideration of information provided to substantiate requests and responses; and provide timely public dissemination of information used by CITA in making commercial availability determinations. CITA must collect certain information about fabric, yarn, or fiber technical specifications and the production capabilities of Peruvian and U.S. textile producers to determine whether certain fabrics, yarns, or fibers are available in commercial quantities in a timely manner in the United States or Peru, subject to Section 203(o) of the Agreement. II. Method of Collection Participants in a commercial availability proceeding must submit public versions of their Requests, Responses or Rebuttals electronically (via email) for posting on OTEXA’s website. Confidential versions of those submissions which contain business confidential information must be delivered in hard copy to the Office of Textiles and Apparel (OTEXA) at the U.S. Department of Commerce. III. Data OMB Control Number: 0625–0265. Form Number(s): N/A. Type of Review: Regular submission. Affected Public: Business or for-profit organizations. Estimated Number of Respondents: 16 (10 for Requests; 3 for Responses; 3 for Rebuttals). Estimated Time per Response: 8 hours per Request, 2 hours per Response, and 1 hour per Rebuttal. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 89. Estimated Total Annual Cost to Public: $5,340. PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 IV. Request for Comments Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden (including hours and cost) of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

The final listing rule describes the background of the listing action for the species and provides a summary of our conclusions regarding its status. For VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:54 Mar 25, 2019 Jkt 247001 additional background and a summary of natural history and threats to the species, the reader is referred to the status review report and final listing rule (available at https:// www.fisheries.noaa.gov/species/ oceanic-whitetip-shark). NMFS is required by section 4(f) of the ESA to develop and implement recovery plans for the conservation and survival of federally listed species unless the Secretary finds that such a plan will not promote the conservation of the species. Recovery means that listed species and their ecosystems are restored, and their future secured, so that the protections of the ESA are no longer necessary. The ESA specifies that recovery plans are to include (1) a description of site-specific management actions necessary to achieve the plan’s goals for the conservation and survival of the species; (2) objective, measurable criteria which, when met, would result in the species being removed from the list; and (3) estimates of the time and costs required to carry out the actions and achieve the plan’s conservation goals. Under section 4(f) of the ESA, public notice and an opportunity for public review and comment are also provided during recovery plan development. This notice and request for information serves as the first public notice and opportunity for public input early in the process. Once a recovery plan has been drafted, it will be announced in the Federal Register and available on our website (see ADDRESSES section) for public review and comment before being finalized. Recovery Planning Workshop Announcement From April 23 through 24, 2019, NMFS will hold a workshop at the Ohana Waikiki East Hotel in Honolulu, HI to help inform our recovery planning for the oceanic whitetip shark (see DATES section). We are inviting experts in specific topic areas, including the species’ biology/ecology, threats to the species and the species’ habitat, and the recovery planning process itself.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On January 30, 2018, we published a final rule listing the oceanic 
whitetip shark as threatened under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) (83 
FR 4153). The final listing rule describes the background of the 
listing action for the species and provides a summary of our 
conclusions regarding its status. For additional background and a 
summary of natural history and threats to the species, the reader is 
referred to the status review report and final listing rule (available 
at https://www.fisheries.noaa.gov/species/oceanic-whitetip-shark).
    NMFS is required by section 4(f) of the ESA to develop and 
implement recovery plans for the conservation and survival of federally 
listed species unless the Secretary finds that such a plan will not 
promote the conservation of the species. Recovery means that listed 
species and their ecosystems are restored, and their future secured, so 
that the protections of the ESA are no longer necessary. The ESA 
specifies that recovery plans are to include (1) a description of site-
specific management actions necessary to achieve the plan's goals for 
the conservation and survival of the species; (2) objective, measurable 
criteria which, when met, would result in the species being removed 
from the list; and (3) estimates of the time and costs required to 
carry out the actions and achieve the plan's conservation goals. Under 
section 4(f) of the ESA, public notice and an opportunity for public 
review and comment are also provided during recovery plan development. 
This notice and request for information serves as the first public 
notice and opportunity for public input early in the process. Once a 
recovery plan has been drafted, it will be announced in the Federal 
Register and available on our website (see ADDRESSES section) for 
public review and comment before being finalized.

Recovery Planning Workshop Announcement

    From April 23 through 24, 2019, NMFS will hold a workshop at the

planning for the oceanic whitetip shark (see DATES section). We are 
inviting experts in specific topic areas, including the species' 
biology/ecology, threats to the species and the species' habitat, and 
the recovery planning process itself. These experts will help us to 
identify potential actions to address the threats to the species, 
identify gaps in knowledge and associated research needs, as well as 
begin developing recovery criteria for the species. In particular, this 
workshop will focus on addressing threats related to commercial 
fisheries interactions. Identified experts include representatives of 
Federal and state agencies, scientific experts, individuals from 
conservation partners and nongovernmental organizations, and commercial
