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.

As of March 26, 2020, the U.S. Trade Representative has issued 11 notices of product exclusions under the $200 billion action. These exclusions are scheduled to expire on August 7, 2020. B. Possible Extensions of Particular Product Exclusions The U.S. Trade Representative has decided to consider a possible extension for up to 12 months of particular exclusions granted under the initial 11 product exclusion notices under the $200 billion action. At this time, USTR is not considering product exclusion notices issued after March 26, 2020. Accordingly, USTR invites public comments on whether to extend particular exclusions granted under the following notices of product exclusions: • 84 FR 38717 (August 7, 2019) • 84 FR 49591 (September 20, 2019) • 84 FR 57803 (October 29, 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) • 84 FR 9921 (February 20, 2020) • 85 FR 15015 (March 16, 2020) • 85 FR 17158 (March 26, 2020) For exclusions amended or corrected by a later issued notice, parties should provide their extension comments on the docket corresponding to the initial notice of product exclusions. 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 September 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 September 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 September 2018 to source the product from the United States or third countries. In addition, USTR will continue to consider whether the imposition of VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:08 May 05, 2020 Jkt 250001 additional duties on the products covered by the exclusion will result in severe economic harm to the commenter or other U.S. interests.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: Background On July 27, 2017, FMCSA announced a demonstration program to evaluate the preventability of eight categories of crashes through submissions of Requests for Data Review to its national data correction system known as DataQs. On August 5, 2019, based on experiences with the demonstration program, FMCSA proposed a Crash Preventability Determination Program with a streamlined process. FMCSA proposed to modify the Safety Measurement System to exclude crashes with not preventable determinations from the prioritization algorithm and proposed noting the not preventable determinations in the Pre-Employment Screening Program. This notice responds to comments received on the proposal and announces the start of the SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:08 May 05, 2020 Jkt 250001 Since its implementation in 2010, FMCSA’s Safety Measurement System (SMS) has used safety performance information in the Behavior Analysis and Safety Improvement Categories (BASICs), in addition to recordable crashes involving commercial motor vehicles (CMVs), to prioritize carriers for safety interventions (75 FR 18256). The Crash Indicator BASIC uses crashes from the previous 24 months to calculate percentiles for motor carriers. In addition, the public SMS website lists motor carriers’ recordable crashes. Although the Crash Indicator BASIC percentiles have never been publicly available, stakeholders have expressed concern that the use of all crashes in SMS, without an indication of preventability, may give an inaccurate impression about the risk posed by the company. PO 00000 Frm 00095 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 In response to this concern, FMCSA announced a demonstration program on July 27, 2017, to evaluate the preventability of certain categories of crashes (82 FR 35045). Based on its experience in conducting the demonstration program, and the strong support for continuing and expanding this program, FMCSA is initiating the Crash Preventability Determination Program (CPDP) as described in this notice. Through this program, motor carriers and drivers may submit eligible crashes for preventability determinations through FMCSA’s DataQs system. FMCSA will remove crashes that were not preventable by the motor carrier or driver from the SMS prioritization algorithm. FMCSA will also note the not preventable determinations in the driver’s PreEmployment Screening Program (PSP) record and will note not preventable, preventable, and undecided determinations in the motor carrier’s list of crashes on the public SMS website. Implementation Proposal General Comments FMCSA received 111 comments to this docket. More than 90 commenters supported the proposal and the Agency’s plan to continue the program. Many noted their support of the expansion of eligible crash types. Gregory Cohen advised that Greyhound Lines, Inc., participated in the demonstration program and supports E:\FR\FM\06MYN1.SGM 06MYN1 EN06MY20.004</GPH> Agency’s new Crash Preventability Determination Program.

A. Background

    For background on the proceedings in this investigation, please see 
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,

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 duties on goods of China classified in 5,757 full 
and partial subheading 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 Trade Representative established a 
process by which U.S. stakeholders could request exclusion of 
particular products classified within an 8-digit HTSUS subheading 
covered by the $200 billion

[[Page 27012]]

action from the additional duties. See 84 FR 29576 (the June 24 
notice).
    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 periodically would announce 
decisions. As of March 26, 2020, the U.S. Trade Representative has 
issued 11 notices of product exclusions under the $200 billion action. 
These exclusions are scheduled to expire on August 7, 2020.

B. Possible Extensions of Particular Product Exclusions

    The U.S. Trade Representative has decided to consider a possible 
extension for up to 12 months of particular exclusions granted under 
the initial 11 product exclusion notices under the $200 billion action. 
At this time, USTR is not considering product exclusion notices issued 
after March 26, 2020. Accordingly, USTR invites public comments on 
whether to extend particular exclusions granted under the following 
notices of product exclusions:

 84 FR 38717 (August 7, 2019)
 84 FR 49591 (September 20, 2019)
 84 FR 57803 (October 29, 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)
 84 FR 9921 (February 20, 2020)
 85 FR 15015 (March 16, 2020)
 85 FR 17158 (March 26, 2020)

    For exclusions amended or corrected by a later issued notice, 
parties should provide their extension comments on the docket 
corresponding to the initial notice of product exclusions.
    USTR will evaluate the possible extension of each exclusion on a 
case-by-case basis. The focus of the evaluation will be whether, 
despite the first imposition of these additional duties in September 
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 September 
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 September 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.
