(collectively, the Line). PSAP states that the Current Lease was entered into in 2000 and amended in 2002. See Ariz. & Cal. R.R.—Lease & Operation Exemption—Union Pac. R.R., FD 33886 (STB served July 7, 2000); Puget Sound & Pac. R.R.—Lease & Operation Exemption—Union Pac. R.R., FD 34213 (STB served Dec. 13, 2002). PSAP further states that the term of the Current Lease was extended in 2010, in accordance with its terms, for an additional 10 years. According to PSAP, the Amended Lease would extend the lease term for an additional 10 years and revise other commercial terms. PSAP certifies that the projected annual revenues as a result of the proposed transaction will not exceed those that would qualify it as a Class III carrier. Additionally, PSAP certifies that its total revenues exceed $5 million. Pursuant to 49 CFR 1150.42(e), if a carrier’s projected annual revenues will exceed $5 million, it must, at least 60 days before the exemption becomes effective, post notice of its intent to undertake the proposed transaction at the workplace of the employees on the affected lines, serve a copy of the notice on the national offices of the labor unions with employees on the affected lines, and certify to the Board that it has done so. However, PSAP’s verified notice includes a request for waiver of the 60-day advance labor notice requirements. PSAP’s waiver request will be addressed in a separate decision. As required under 49 CFR 1150.43(h)(1), PSAP has disclosed in its verified notice that the Amended Lease contains an interchange commitment.2 PSAP has provided additional information regarding the interchange commitment as required by 49 CFR 1150.43(h). The verified notice states that the Amended Lease will be effective upon the effective date of the verified notice 1 The existing lease, as previously amended from time to time, is referred to as the Current Lease; the Current Lease with the addition of the new amendment for which authority is sought here is referred to as the Amended Lease. 2 A copy of the Amended Lease with the interchange commitment was submitted under seal. See 49 CFR 1150.43(h)(1). VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:03 Apr 23, 2020 Jkt 250001 of exemption and that PSAP will continue to operate under the terms of the Current Lease until then. The Board will establish the effective date in its separate decision on the waiver request. If the verified notice contains false or misleading information, the exemption is void ab initio. Petitions to revoke the exemption under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) may be filed at any time. The filing of a petition to revoke will not automatically stay the effectiveness of the exemption. Petitions to stay must be filed no later than May 1, 2020. All pleadings, referring to Docket No. FD 36395, must be filed with the Surface Transportation Board either via e-filing or in writing addressed to 395 E Street SW, Washington, DC 20423–0001. In addition, a copy of each pleading must be served on PSAP’s representative, Eric M. Hocky, Clark Hill PLC, Two Commerce Square, 2001 Market St., Suite 2620, Philadelphia, PA 19103. According to PSAP, this action is categorically excluded from environmental review under 49 CFR 1105.6(c) and from historic preservation reporting requirements under 49 CFR 1105.8(b).

Background For background on the proceedings in this investigation, please see the prior notices including 82 FR 40213 (August 24, 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 47974 (September 21, 2018), 83 FR 49153 (September 28, 2018), 83 FR 65198 (December 19, 2018), 84 FR 7966 (March 5, 2019), 84 FR 20459 (May 9, 2019), 84 FR 29576 (June 24, 2019), 84 FRN 38717 (August 7, 2019), 84 FR 46212 (September 3, 2019), 84 FR 49591 (September 20, 2019), 84 FR 57803 (October 28, 2019), 84 FR 61674 (November 13, 2019), 84 FR 65882 (November 29, 2019), 84 FR 69012 (December 17, 2019), 85 FR 549 (January 6, 2020), 85 FR 6674 (February 5, 2020), 85 FR 9921 (February 20, 2020), 85 FR 15015 (March 16, 2020), and 85 FR 17158 (March 26, 2020). Effective September 24, 2018, the U.S. Trade Representative imposed additional 10 percent ad valorem duties on goods of China classified in 5,757 full and partial subheadings of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), with an approximate annual trade value of $200 billion. See 83 FR 47974, as modified by 83 FR 49153. In May 2019, the U.S. Trade Representative increased the additional duty to 25 percent. See 84 FR 20459. On June 24, 2019, the U.S. Trade Representative established a process by which stakeholders could request exclusion of particular products E:\FR\FM\24APN1.SGM 24APN1 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 80 / Friday, April 24, 2020 / Notices khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES classified within an 8-digit HTSUS subheading covered by the $200 billion action from the additional duties. See 84 FR 29576 (the June 24 notice). Under the June 24 notice, requests for exclusion were required 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 HTSUS subheading covered by the $200 billion action. Requestors were also required to provide the 10-digit HTSUS subheading 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 June 24 notice stated that the U.S. Trade Representative would take into account whether an exclusion would VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:03 Apr 23, 2020 Jkt 250001 undermine the objective of the Section 301 investigation. The June 24 notice required submission of requests for exclusion from the $200 billion action no later than September 30, 2019, and noted that the U.S. Trade Representative would periodically announce decisions. In August 2019, the U.S. Trade Representative granted an initial set of exclusion requests. See 84 FR 38717. The U.S. Trade Representative granted additional exclusions in September 2019, October 2019, November 2019, December 2019, January 2020, February 2020, and March 2020. See 84 FR 49591, 84 FR 57803, 84 FR 61674, 84 FR 65882, 84 FR 69012, 85 FR 549, 85 FR 6674, 85 FR 9921, 85 FR 15015, and 85 FR 17158. The Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) regularly updates the status of each pending request on the Exclusions Portal at https://exclusions.ustr.gov/s/ docket?docketNumber=USTR-20190005. B. Determination To Grant Certain Exclusions Based on the evaluation of the factors set forth in the June 24 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 U.S. Trade Representative has determined to grant the product exclusions set forth in the Annex to this notice. The U.S. Trade Representative’s determination also takes into account advice from advisory committees and any public comments on the pertinent exclusion requests. PO 00000 Frm 00131 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 23123 As set forth in the Annex, the exclusions are reflected in one 10-digit HTSUS subheading, which covers 20 separate exclusion requests, and 107 specially prepared product descriptions, which cover 157 separate exclusion requests. In accordance with the June 24 notice, the exclusions are available for any product that meets the description in the Annex, regardless of whether the importer benefitting from the product exclusion filed an exclusion request. Further, the scope of each exclusion is governed by the scope of the product descriptions in the Annex, and not by the product descriptions found in any particular request for exclusion. Paragraph A, subparagraphs 3 through 5 of the Annex contain conforming amendments to the HTSUS reflecting the modifications made by the Annex. Paragraph B of the Annex contains an amendment reflecting a technical correction to a certain note to the HTSUS, specifically U.S. note 20(mm)(11), published at 84 FR 61674 (November 13, 2019). As stated in the September 20, 2019 notice, the exclusions will apply from September 24, 2018, to August 7, 2020. U.S. Customs and Border Protection will issue instructions on entry guidance and implementation. The U.S. Trade Representative will continue to issue determinations on pending requests on a periodic basis. Joseph Barloon, General Counsel, Office of the U.S. Trade Representative.

Practices Related to Technology Transfer, Intellectual Property, and 
Innovation

AGENCY: Office of the United States Trade Representative.

ACTION: Notice of product exclusions.

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

SUMMARY: In September 2018, the U.S. Trade Representative imposed 
additional duties on goods of China with an annual trade value of 
approximately $200 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 a product exclusion process in June 
2019, and interested persons have submitted requests for the exclusion 
of specific products. This notice announces the U.S. Trade 
Representative's determination to grant certain exclusion requests, as 
specified in the Annex to this notice, and corrects a technical error 
in a previously announced exclusion.

DATES: The product exclusions announced in this notice will apply as of 
September 24, 2018, the effective date of the $200 billion action, and 
extend to August 7, 2020. The amendments announced in this notice are 
retroactive to the date that the original exclusions were published.

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 including 82 FR 40213 (August 24, 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 47974 (September 21, 2018), 
83 FR 49153 (September 28, 2018), 83 FR 65198 (December 19, 2018), 84 
FR 7966 (March 5, 2019), 84 FR 20459 (May 9, 2019), 84 FR 29576 (June 
24, 2019), 84 FRN 38717 (August 7, 2019), 84 FR 46212 (September 3, 
2019), 84 FR 49591 (September 20, 2019), 84 FR 57803 (October 28, 
2019), 84 FR 61674 (November 13, 2019), 84 FR 65882 (November 29, 
2019), 84 FR 69012 (December 17, 2019), 85 FR 549 (January 6, 2020), 85 
FR 6674 (February 5, 2020), 85 FR 9921 (February 20, 2020), 85 FR 15015 
(March 16, 2020), and 85 FR 17158 (March 26, 2020).
    Effective September 24, 2018, the U.S. Trade Representative imposed 
additional 10 percent ad valorem duties on goods of China classified in 
5,757 full and partial subheadings of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of 
the United States (HTSUS), with an approximate annual trade value of 
$200 billion. See 83 FR 47974, as modified by 83 FR 49153. In May 2019, 
the U.S. Trade Representative increased the additional duty to 25 
percent. See 84 FR 20459. On June 24, 2019, the U.S. Trade 
Representative established a process by which stakeholders could 
request exclusion of particular products

[[Page 23123]]

classified within an 8-digit HTSUS subheading covered by the $200 
billion action from the additional duties. See 84 FR 29576 (the June 24 
notice).
    Under the June 24 notice, requests for exclusion were required 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 HTSUS subheading covered by the $200 billion 
action. Requestors were also required to provide the 10-digit HTSUS 
subheading 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 June 24 notice stated that the U.S. Trade Representative would 
take into account whether an exclusion would undermine the objective of 
the Section 301 investigation.
    The June 24 notice required submission of requests for exclusion 
from the $200 billion action no later than September 30, 2019, and 
noted that the U.S. Trade Representative would periodically announce 
decisions. In August 2019, the U.S. Trade Representative granted an 
initial set of exclusion requests. See 84 FR 38717. The U.S. Trade 
Representative granted additional exclusions in September 2019, October 
2019, November 2019, December 2019, January 2020, February 2020, and 
March 2020. See 84 FR 49591, 84 FR 57803, 84 FR 61674, 84 FR 65882, 84 
FR 69012, 85 FR 549, 85 FR 6674, 85 FR 9921, 85 FR 15015, and 85 FR 
17158. The Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) 
regularly updates the status of each pending request on the Exclusions 
Portal at https://exclusions.ustr.gov/s/docket?docketNumber=USTR-2019-0005.

B. Determination To Grant Certain Exclusions

    Based on the evaluation of the factors set forth in the June 24 
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 U.S. Trade Representative has determined to grant the product 
exclusions set forth in the Annex to this notice. The U.S. Trade 
Representative's determination also takes into account advice from 
advisory committees and any public comments on the pertinent exclusion 
requests.
    As set forth in the Annex, the exclusions are reflected in one 10-
digit HTSUS subheading, which covers 20 separate exclusion requests, 
and 107 specially prepared product descriptions, which cover 157 
separate exclusion requests.
    In accordance with the June 24 notice, the exclusions are available 
for any product that meets the description in the Annex, regardless of 
whether the importer benefitting from the product exclusion filed an 
exclusion request. Further, the scope of each exclusion is governed by 
the scope of the product descriptions in the Annex, and not by the 
product descriptions found in any particular request for exclusion.
    Paragraph A, subparagraphs 3 through 5 of the Annex contain 
conforming amendments to the HTSUS reflecting the modifications made by 
the Annex. Paragraph B of the Annex contains an amendment reflecting a 
technical correction to a certain note to the HTSUS, specifically U.S. 
note 20(mm)(11), published at 84 FR 61674 (November 13, 2019).
    As stated in the September 20, 2019 notice, the exclusions will 
apply from September 24, 2018, to August 7, 2020. U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection will issue instructions on entry guidance and 
implementation.
    The U.S. Trade Representative will continue to issue determinations 
on pending requests on a periodic basis.

Joseph Barloon,
General Counsel, Office of the U.S. Trade Representative.
