The Trade Representative initiated the exclusion process in July 2018, and stakeholders have submitted requests for the exclusion of specific products. In December 2018, March 2019, April 2019, May 2019, and June 2019, the Trade Representative granted exclusion requests. This notice announces the Trade Representative’s determination to grant additional exclusion requests, as specified in the Annex to this notice. The Trade Representative will continue to issue decisions on pending requests on a periodic basis. DATES: The product exclusions announced in this notice will apply as of the July 6, 2018 effective date of the $34 billion action, and will extend for one year after the publication of this notice. U.S. Customs and Border Protection will issue instructions on entry guidance and implementation.

Background For background on the proceedings in this investigation, please see the prior notices issued in the investigation, including 82 FR 40213 (August 23, 2017), 83 FR 14906 (April 6, 2018), 83 FR 28710 (June 20, 2018), 83 FR 33608 (July 17, 2018), 83 FR 38760 (August 7, 2018), 83 FR 40823 (August 16, 2018), 83 FR 47974 (September 21, 2018), 83 FR 65198 (December 19, 2018), 83 FR 67463 (December 28, 2018), 84 FR 7966 (March 5, 2019), 84 FR 11152 (March 25, 2019), 84 FR 16310 (April 18, 2019), 84 FR 21389 (May 14, 2019), and 84 FR 25895 (June 4, 2019). Effective July 6, 2018, the Trade Representative imposed additional 25 percent duties on goods of China classified in 818 8-digit subheadings of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), with an approximate annual trade value of $34 billion. See 83 FR 28710. The Trade Representative’s determination included a decision to establish a process by which U.S. stakeholders may request exclusion of particular products classified within an 8-digit HTSUS subheading covered by the $34 billion VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:47 Jul 08, 2019 Jkt 247001 action from the additional duties. The Trade Representative issued a notice setting out the process for the product exclusions, and opened a public docket. See 83 FR 32181 (the July 11 notice). Under the July 11 notice, requests for exclusion had to identify the product subject to the request in terms of the physical characteristics that distinguish the product from other products within the relevant 8-digit subheading covered by the $34 billion action. Requestors also had to provide the 10-digit subheading of the HTSUS most applicable to the particular product requested for exclusion, and could submit information on the ability of U.S. Customs and Border Protection to administer the requested exclusion. Requestors were asked to provide the quantity and value of the Chinese-origin product that the requestor purchased in the last three years. With regard to the rationale for the requested exclusion, requests had to address the following factors: • Whether the particular product is available only from China and specifically whether the particular product and/or a comparable product is available from sources in the United States and/or third countries. • Whether the imposition of additional duties on the particular product would cause severe economic harm to the requestor or other U.S. interests. • Whether the particular product is strategically important or related to ‘‘Made in China 2025’’ or other Chinese industrial programs. The July 11 notice stated that the Trade Representative would take into account whether an exclusion would undermine the objective of the Section 301 investigation. The July 11 notice required submission of requests for exclusion from the $34 billion action no later than October 9, 2018, and noted that the Trade Representative would periodically announce decisions. In December 2018, the Trade Representative granted an initial set of exclusion requests. See 83 FR 67463. The Trade Representative granted a second, third, fourth and fifth set of exclusions in March 2019, April 2019, May 2019, and June 2019. See 84 FR 11152, 84 FR 16310, 84 FR 21389, and 84 FR 25895. The Office of the United States Trade Representative regularly updates the status of each pending request and posts the status within the web pages for the respective tariff action they apply to at https://ustr.gov/issueareas/enforcement/section-301investigations/tariff-actions.

The Trade Representative’s determination also takes into account advice from advisory committees and any public comments on the pertinent exclusion requests. As set out in the Annex to this notice, the exclusions are reflected in 110 specially prepared product descriptions, which cover 362 separate exclusion requests. In accordance with the July 11 notice, the exclusions are available for any product that meets the description in the Annex, regardless of whether the importer filed an exclusion request. Further, the scope of each exclusion is governed by the scope of the product descriptions in the Annex to this notice, and not by the product descriptions set out in any particular request for exclusion. Paragraph A, subparagraphs (3)–(5) are conforming amendments to the HTSUS reflecting the modification made by the Annex to this notice. Paragraph B of the Annex to this notice modifies U.S. note 20(k)(26) to subchapter III of chapter 99 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, as set out in the Annex of the notice published at 84 FR 21389 (May 14, 2019). In order to clarify the periodic revisions to the HTSUS, paragraph C of the Annex modifies the text to U.S. note 20(m)(27) to subchapter III of chapter 99 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, as set out in the Annex of the notice published at 84 FR 25895 (June 4, 2019). Paragraphs D and E of the Annex to this notice correct a typographical error in U.S. notes 20(m)(53) and 20(m)(54) to subchapter III of chapter 99 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, as set out in the Annex of the notice published at 84 FR 25895 (June 4, 2019).

ACTION: Notice of availability of Finding of No Significant Impact/Record of Decision. AGENCY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announces its decision to adopt the United States Air Force (USAF) Playas Military Operating Area and Red Flag Rescue Supplemental Environmental Analysis (SEA) for the establishment of a Temporary Military Operating Area (TMOA) in Playas, New Mexico. This notice announces that based on its independent review and evaluation of the SEA and supporting documentation, the FAA is adopting the SEA and issuing a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI)/Record of Decision (ROD) for the establishment of the Playas TMOA. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Paula Miller, Airspace Policy and Regulations Group, Office of Airspace Services, Federal Aviation Administration, 800 Independence Avenue SW, Washington, DC 20591; telephone: (202) 267–7378. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Background The USAF has established Red FlagRescue as an USAF level combat search and rescue exercise that is conducted twice a year using the Playas Training and Research Center located in Grant and Hidalgo Counties in southwest New Mexico. The Red Flag-Rescue training exercise is designed to provide personnel recovery training for U.S. combat aircrews, para-rescue teams, survival specialists, intelligence personnel, air battle managers, and personnel from the Joint Personnel Recovery Center. A TMOA is required for military aircraft that support the exercise. In accordance with Section 102 of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (‘‘NEPA’’), the Council on Environmental Quality’s (‘‘CEQ’’) regulations implementing NEPA (40 CFR parts 1500–1508), and other applicable authorities, including the FAA Order 1050.1F, Environmental PO 00000 Frm 00128 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Impacts: Policies and Procedures, paragraph 8–2, and FAA Order JO 7400.2M, ‘‘Procedures for Handling Airspace Matters,’’ paragraph 32–2–3, the FAA has conducted an independent review and evaluation of the USAF’s SEA, dated February 2018, and its supporting documents. As a cooperating agency with responsibility for approving special use airspace (SUA) under 49 U.S.C. 40103(b)(3)(A), the FAA provided subject matter expertise and coordinated with the USAF during the environmental review process. Implementation After evaluating the aeronautical study and the SEA, the FAA has issued a FONSI/ROD to establish the Playas TMOA for a period not to exceed five days during an 18-day window from August 10–24, 2019. The Playas TMOA will be activated by publishing a Notice to Airman two cycles (56 days) prior to the exercise in the Notices to Airman Publication. FAA circularized the proposed action from February 23, 2109 through April 1, 2019 in the areas required by JO 7400.2M, which resulted in zero public comments. The circularization referenced two events, a USAF exercise in May 2019 and another in August 2019. The May 2019 event was canceled, but the August 2019 event is the proposed action. The FONSI/ROD and SEA are available upon request by contacting Paula Miller at: Airspace Policy and Regulations Group, Office of Airspace Services, Federal Aviation Administration, 800 Independence Avenue SW, Washington, DC 20591; telephone: (202) 267–7378.

OFFICE OF THE UNITED STATES TRADE REPRESENTATIVE


Notice of Product Exclusions: China's Acts, Policies, and 
Practices Related to Technology Transfer, Intellectual Property, and 
Innovation

AGENCY: Office of the United States Trade Representative.

ACTION: Notice of product exclusions.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Effective July 6, 2018, the U.S. Trade Representative (Trade 
Representative) imposed additional duties on goods of China with an 
annual trade value of approximately $34 billion (the $34 billion 
action) as part of the action in the Section 301 investigation of 
China's acts, policies, and practices related to technology transfer, 
intellectual property, and innovation.

[[Page 32822]]

The Trade Representative's determination included a decision to 
establish a product exclusion process. The Trade Representative 
initiated the exclusion process in July 2018, and stakeholders have 
submitted requests for the exclusion of specific products. In December 
2018, March 2019, April 2019, May 2019, and June 2019, the Trade 
Representative granted exclusion requests. This notice announces the 
Trade Representative's determination to grant additional exclusion 
requests, as specified in the Annex to this notice. The Trade 
Representative will continue to issue decisions on pending requests on 
a periodic basis.

DATES: The product exclusions announced in this notice will apply as of 
the July 6, 2018 effective date of the $34 billion action, and will 
extend for one year after the publication of this notice. U.S. Customs 
and Border Protection will issue instructions on entry guidance and 
implementation.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For general questions about this 
notice, contact Assistant General Counsels Philip Butler or Megan 
Grimball, or Director of Industrial Goods Justin Hoffmann at (202) 395-
5725. For specific questions on customs classification or 
implementation of the product exclusions identified in the Annex to 
this notice, contact [email protected].

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Background

    For background on the proceedings in this investigation, please see 
the prior notices issued in the investigation, including 82 FR 40213 
(August 23, 2017), 83 FR 14906 (April 6, 2018), 83 FR 28710 (June 20, 
2018), 83 FR 33608 (July 17, 2018), 83 FR 38760 (August 7, 2018), 83 FR 
40823 (August 16, 2018), 83 FR 47974 (September 21, 2018), 83 FR 65198 
(December 19, 2018), 83 FR 67463 (December 28, 2018), 84 FR 7966 (March 
5, 2019), 84 FR 11152 (March 25, 2019), 84 FR 16310 (April 18, 2019), 
84 FR 21389 (May 14, 2019), and 84 FR 25895 (June 4, 2019).
    Effective July 6, 2018, the Trade Representative imposed additional 
25 percent duties on goods of China classified in 818 8-digit 
subheadings of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States 
(HTSUS), with an approximate annual trade value of $34 billion. See 83 
FR 28710. The Trade Representative's determination included a decision 
to establish a process by which U.S. stakeholders may request exclusion 
of particular products classified within an 8-digit HTSUS subheading 
covered by the $34 billion action from the additional duties. The Trade 
Representative issued a notice setting out the process for the product 
exclusions, and opened a public docket. See 83 FR 32181 (the July 11 
notice).
    Under the July 11 notice, requests for exclusion had to identify 
the product subject to the request in terms of the physical 
characteristics that distinguish the product from other products within 
the relevant 8-digit subheading covered by the $34 billion action. 
Requestors also had to provide the 10-digit subheading of the HTSUS 
most applicable to the particular product requested for exclusion, and 
could submit information on the ability of U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection to administer the requested exclusion. Requestors were asked 
to provide the quantity and value of the Chinese-origin product that 
the requestor purchased in the last three years. With regard to the 
rationale for the requested exclusion, requests had to address the 
following factors:
     Whether the particular product is available only from 
China and specifically whether the particular product and/or a 
comparable product is available from sources in the United States and/
or third countries.
     Whether the imposition of additional duties on the 
particular product would cause severe economic harm to the requestor or 
other U.S. interests.
     Whether the particular product is strategically important 
or related to ``Made in China 2025'' or other Chinese industrial 
programs.
    The July 11 notice stated that the Trade Representative would take 
into account whether an exclusion would undermine the objective of the 
Section 301 investigation.
    The July 11 notice required submission of requests for exclusion 
from the $34 billion action no later than October 9, 2018, and noted 
that the Trade Representative would periodically announce decisions. In 
December 2018, the Trade Representative granted an initial set of 
exclusion requests. See 83 FR 67463. The Trade Representative granted a 
second, third, fourth and fifth set of exclusions in March 2019, April 
2019, May 2019, and June 2019. See 84 FR 11152, 84 FR 16310, 84 FR 
21389, and 84 FR 25895. The Office of the United States Trade 
Representative regularly updates the status of each pending request and 
posts the status within the web pages for the respective tariff action 
they apply to at https://ustr.gov/issue-areas/enforcement/section-301-investigations/tariff-actions.

B. Determination To Grant Certain Exclusions

    Based on the evaluation of the factors set out in the July 11 
notice, which are summarized above, pursuant to sections 301(b), 
301(c), and 307(a) of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended, and in 
accordance with the advice of the interagency Section 301 Committee, 
the Trade Representative has determined to grant the product exclusions 
set out in the Annex to this notice. The Trade Representative's 
determination also takes into account advice from advisory committees 
and any public comments on the pertinent exclusion requests.
    As set out in the Annex to this notice, the exclusions are 
reflected in 110 specially prepared product descriptions, which cover 
362 separate exclusion requests.
    In accordance with the July 11 notice, the exclusions are available 
for any product that meets the description in the Annex, regardless of 
whether the importer filed an exclusion request. Further, the scope of 
each exclusion is governed by the scope of the product descriptions in 
the Annex to this notice, and not by the product descriptions set out 
in any particular request for exclusion.
    Paragraph A, subparagraphs (3)-(5) are conforming amendments to the 
HTSUS reflecting the modification made by the Annex to this notice.
    Paragraph B of the Annex to this notice modifies U.S. note 
20(k)(26) to subchapter III of chapter 99 of the Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule of the United States, as set out in the Annex of the notice 
published at 84 FR 21389 (May 14, 2019).
    In order to clarify the periodic revisions to the HTSUS, paragraph 
C of the Annex modifies the text to U.S. note 20(m)(27) to subchapter 
III of chapter 99 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United 
States, as set out in the Annex of the notice published at 84 FR 25895 
(June 4, 2019).
    Paragraphs D and E of the Annex to this notice correct a 
typographical error in U.S. notes 20(m)(53) and 20(m)(54) to subchapter 
III of chapter 99 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United 
States, as set out in the Annex of the notice published at 84 FR 25895 
(June 4, 2019).
    As stated in the July 11 notice, the exclusions will apply as of 
the July 6, 2018 effective date of the $34 billion action, and extend 
for one year after the publication of this notice. U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection will issue instructions on entry guidance and 
implementation.

    The Trade Representative will continue to issue determinations on 
pending requests on a periodic basis.
