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. SUMMARY: Abstract of Proposed Collection VerDate Sep<11>2014 adopted by a United States citizen, subject to criteria prescribed by the Secretary of State. Over 350 American families have successfully adopted children from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. However, since September 25, 2013, they have not been able to bring their adoptive children home to the United States because the Democratic Republic of the Congo suspended the issuance of ‘‘exit permits’’ for these children. As the permit suspension drags on, however, American families are repeatedly paying visa renewal and related fees, while also continuing to be separated from their adopted children. The waiver or refund provides support and relief to American families seeking to bring their adoptive children home to the United States from the Democratic Republic of the Congo and families in situations similar to the one stipulated above. This form collects information to determine the extra fees these families have paid and refund them in accordance with the Adoptive Family Relief Act.

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.

    The July 11 notice required submission of requests for exclusion

B. Possible Extensions of Particular Product Exclusions

    The U.S. Trade Representative has decided to consider a possible

this time, USTR is not considering comments concerning possible 
extensions of exclusions granted under any other product exclusion

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.

of additional duties on the products covered by the exclusion will 
result in severe economic harm to the commenter or other U.S. 
interests.
