The Trade Representative’s decision to modify the September 2018 action takes into account the extensive public comments and testimony, as well as advice from advisory committees, concerning the actions proposed in the notices issued in advance of the September 2018 action (83 FR 33608 and 83 FR 38760). Those notices, among other things, requested comments on whether the rate of additional duties should be 10 percent or 25 percent. The Trade Representative’s decision also reflects the advice of the interagency Section 301 Committee. The Annex to this notice amends the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States to provide that the rate of additional duties for the September 2018 action will increase to 25 percent on May 10, 2019. Pursuant to Sections 301(b), 301(c), 304(a), and 307(a) of the Trade Act, the Trade Representative has determined that the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) will establish a process by which interested persons may request that particular products classified within an HTSUS subheading covered by the September 2018 action be excluded from the additional duties. USTR will publish a separate notice describing the product exclusion process, including the procedures for submitting exclusion requests, and an opportunity for interested persons to submit oppositions to a request. Annex Effective with respect to goods (i) entered for consumption, or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, on or after 12:01 a.m. eastern daylight time on May 10, 2019, and (ii) exported to the United States on or after May 10, 2019, subchapter III of chapter 99 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States is modified: 1. By amending U.S. Note 20(e) to subchapter III of chapter 99 by deleting ‘‘10 percent’’ each place that it appears, and inserting ‘‘25 percent’’ in lieu thereof; 2. by amending U.S. Note 20(g) to subchapter III of chapter 99 by deleting ‘‘10 percent’’ each place that it appears, and inserting ‘‘25 percent’’ in lieu thereof; VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:39 May 08, 2019 Jkt 247001 3. by amending the Rates of Duty 1General column of heading 9903.88.03 by deleting ‘‘10%’’, and inserting ‘‘25%’’ in lieu thereof; and 4. by amending the Rates of Duty 1General column of heading 9903.88.04 by deleting ‘‘10%’’, and inserting ‘‘25%’’ in lieu thereof.

ACTION: Notice and request for comments. AGENCY: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the FAA invites public comments on its proposed collection of information pursuant to changes to the FAA’s commercial space transportation regulations proposed in the ‘‘Streamlined Launch and Reentry Licensing Requirements’’ notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). A copy of the NPRM is available in the docket for this notice. This information collection would consolidate two previously approved information collections under one, new OMB Control Number. This collection would allow the FAA to continue ensuring commercial space activities do not unduly jeopardize public health and safety, safety of property, or the national security and foreign policy interests of the United States. The FAA intends to request the Office of Management and Budget’s approval of this information collection. DATES: Written comments should be submitted by July 8, 2019.

The agency will summarize and/or include your comments in the request for OMB’s clearance of this information collection. OMB Control Number: 2120–NEW. Title: Streamlined Launch and Reentry Licensing Requirements. Form Numbers: None. Type of Review: This is a request for OMB clearance of an information collection that would consolidate two previous collections 1 into one collection under a new OMB Control Number.2 Background: 51 U.S.C. Chapter 509 requires that the FAA oversee commercial space transportation activities in the United States, or conducted by United States citizens abroad, to ensure they do not unduly jeopardize the public health and safety, safety of property, or national security or foreign policy interests of the United States. Generally speaking, Chapter 509 requires a person to obtain a license to launch or reenter a vehicle from or to the United States, or a U.S. citizen to obtain a license to launch or reenter a vehicle from or to a point outside the United States. On April 15, 2019, the FAA published the NPRM titled ‘‘Streamlined Launch and Reentry Licensing Requirements,’’ a copy of which you can find in the docket to this notice. The proposed rule would streamline and increase flexibility in the FAA’s commercial space regulations; remove obsolete requirements; and, consolidate and revise multiple regulatory parts to apply a single set of licensing and safety regulations across several types of launch and reentry activities and related 1 OMB Control Number 2120–0608: Title 14 CFR, Parts 401, 413, 415, 417; Licensing and Safety Requirements for Launch (For Expendable Launch Vehicle). OMB Control Number 2120–0643: Title 14 CFR, Parts 431, 435; Commercial Space Transportation Reusable Launch Vehicle Mission Licensing Regulations (Part 431) and Commercial Space Transportation Reentry of a Vehicle Other Than a Reusable Launch Vehicle Licensing Regulations (Part 435). 2 OMB Control Number 2120–NEW: Title 14 CFR, Parts 401, 413, 450; Launch and Reentry Licensing Requirements. PO 00000 Frm 00140 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 20461 vehicles. Specifically, the NPRM would eliminate current parts 415, 417, 431, and 435 and replace them with part 450, an updated, streamlined, and consolidated version of the previous requirements. The FAA collected information for those parts pursuant to OMB Control Numbers 2120–0608 and 2120–0643. As a result, the two current Information Collection Requirements 3 associated with those eliminated parts would be obsolete. The FAA proposes to replace the obsolete Information Collection Requirements with a new collection associated with proposed part 450. The new collection reflects the proposed requirements described in detail in the referenced NPRM and summarized below. Parts 413 and 450 collectively identify information applicants must submit for a vehicle operator license. Part 413 (§ 413.7) sets the manner for submitting an application. Part 450 Subpart B (Requirements to obtain a vehicle operator license) sets the broad application requirements to obtain a vehicle operator license. For example, § 450.41 sets requirements for policy review, § 450.43 for payload review, § 450.45 covers safety, and § 450.47 addresses environmental requirements. Part 450 subpart C (Safety requirements) focuses on safety requirements, some of which must be satisfied by the time of application while others apply postlicense. Applicants must, therefore, provide the FAA information showing regulatory compliance both as part of the application and after the FAA grants a license. Part 450 subpart D (Terms and conditions of a vehicle operator license) contains requirements for continuing accuracy of a license and application for modification of a license (§ 450.211), preflight reporting (§ 450.213), postflight reporting (§ 450.215), and registration of space objects (§ 450.217.) The FAA’s Office of Commercial Space Transportation (AST) uses the information to ensure commercial space activities in the United States, or conducted by United States citizens abroad, do not jeopardize the public health and safety, safety of property, or national security or foreign policy interests of the United States. AST uses the data to assess the risk to public health and safety, and the safety of property. Risk must remain within the limits set in FAA regulations. AST shares other information with government partners (e.g., the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, U.S. Department of Defense, U.S. Department of State) during payload and policy reviews to ensure the 3 Ibid.
