ACTION: Notice and request for comments. AGENCY: Effective July 6, 2018, the U.S. Trade Representative imposed additional duties on goods of China with an annual trade value of approximately $34 billion 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. The U.S. Trade Representative initiated the exclusion process in July 2018 and granted an initial set of exclusions in December 2018. The exclusions granted in December 2018 are set to expire on December 28, 2019. The U.S. Trade Representative has decided to consider extending particular exclusions granted in December 2018 for up to twelve months. The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR) invites public comment on whether to extend particular exclusions. DATES: November 1, 2019 at noon EDT: Docket Number USTR–2019–0019 will open for comments on the possible extension of particular exclusions. November 30, 2019 at 11:59 p.m. EDT: To be assured of consideration, submit written comments by November 30, 2019. ADDRESSES: Submit comments through the Federal eRulemaking Portal: http:// khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:38 Oct 30, 2019 Jkt 250001 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 32181 (July 11, 2018), and 83 FR 67463 (December 28, 2018). Effective July 6, 2018, the U.S. 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 U.S. Trade Representative’s determination included a decision to establish a process by which U.S. stakeholders could request exclusion of particular products classified within an 8-digit HTSUS subheading covered by the $34 billion action from the additional duties. The U.S. 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). 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 U.S. Trade Representative periodically would announce decisions. In December 2018, the U.S. Trade Representative granted an initial set of exclusion requests. See 83 FR 67463 (December 28, 2018) (December 2018 notice). These exclusions are set to expire on December 28, 2019. B. Possible Extensions of Particular Product Exclusions The U.S. Trade Representative is considering a possible extension of particular exclusions granted in the December 2018 notice for up to twelve months. USTR invites public comments on whether to extend particular exclusions granted in the December 2018 notice. At this time, USTR is not PO 00000 Frm 00059 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 58427 considering comments concerning possible extensions of exclusions granted under any other product exclusion notice. USTR will evaluate the possible extension of each exclusion on a caseby-case basis. The focus of the evaluation will be whether, despite the first imposition of these additional duties in July 2018, the particular product remains available only from China. In addressing this factor, commenters should address specifically: • Whether the particular product and/or a comparable product is available from sources in the United States and/or in third countries. • Any changes in the global supply chain since July 2018 with respect to the particular product, or any other relevant industry developments. • The efforts, if any, the importers or U.S. purchasers have undertaken since July 2018 to source the product from the United States or third countries. In addition, USTR will continue to consider whether the imposition of additional duties on the products covered by the exclusion will result in severe economic harm to the commenter or other U.S. interests. USTR strongly encourages commenters to complete Form A, which USTR will post on its website before the docket opens, and submit the completed Form A through http:// www.regulations.gov. The docket number is USTR–2019–0019. USTR will post completed Form A’s on the public docket. In addition to submitting Form A through regulations.gov, commenters who are importers and/or purchasers of the products covered by the exclusion should complete Form B, which USTR will post on its website before the docket opens. Form B requests BCI information, and will not be posted on the public docket. Submit Form B, along with a copy of the completed Form A, via email to 301bciextensions@ ustr.eop.gov. Facsimiles of Form A and Form B are in the Annex to this notice and will be available electronically at: https:// ustr.gov/issue-areas/enforcement/ section-301-investigations/section-301china/34-billion-trade-action. Set forth below is a summary of the information to be entered on Form A: • Contact information, including the full legal name of the organization making the comment, whether the commenter is a third party (e.g., law firm, trade association, or customs broker) submitting on behalf of an organization or industry, and the primary point of contact (commenter and/or third party submitter).
