OMB Control Number: N/A. Form Number(s): Large Civil Aircraft Dispute (LCA) Form. Description: Following an investigation, and nearly 15 years of litigation, the U.S. Trade Representative determined that the European Union (EU) and certain member States or former member States denied U.S. rights under the World Trade Organization (WTO) Agreement and failed to implement WTO Dispute Settlement Body recommendations concerning certain subsidies to the EU large civil aircraft industry. Pursuant to sections 301(a), 301(c), 304(a)(1)(B), and 306(b) of the Trade Act of 1974 (Trade Act) (19 U.S.C. 2411(a), 2411(c), 2414(a)(1)(B), and 2416(b)), the U.S. Trade Representative determined to take action in the form of additional duties on products of certain EU member States, at levels of 10 or 25 percent ad valorem, as specified in the list of products included in Annex A of the October 9 notice, effective October 18, 2019 (retaliation list). See 84 FR 54245 (October 9, 2019).

Under section 306(c), the U.S. Trade Representative must make revisions 120 days after he took action, and every 180 days thereafter unless certain conditions are met. Before making revisions, section 306(d) requires the U.S Trade Representative to seek public comments. The U.S. Trade Representative announced the beginning of the 120-day review of the action on December 12, 2019. See 84 FR 67992 (December 12 notice). The December 12 notice specifically requested public comments on: • Whether the U.S. Trade Representative should remove products of specific EU member States from the list of products subject to additional duties or should remain on the list. • if a product remains on the list, whether the U.S. Trade Representative increase the current rate of additional duty to as high as 100 percent. • whether the U.S. Trade Representative should add additional EU products to the list. USTR received nearly 26,000 comments in response to the December 12 notice. The U.S. Trade Representative announced certain revisions to the action being taken in the investigation on February 14, 2020. See 85 FR 10204 (February 21, 2020), and 85 FR 14517 (March 12, 2020). VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:59 May 26, 2020 Jkt 250001 Unless certain statutory conditions are met, the next 180-day revision is required on or about August 12, 2020. USTR anticipates receiving at least as many public comments as it received in response to the initial 120-day review. To assist in timely and comprehensive review and public availability of comments in response to notices of periodic revisions, USTR is establishing the Large Civil Aircraft Dispute Portal and requiring use of the LCA Form attached to this notice. In compliance with statutory requirements, USTR anticipates that it will begin accepting comments regarding the next possible revision around June 23, 2020. USTR will ask the public to provide comments on the same issues described in the December 12 notice. Affected Public: Those interested in commenting on whether certain products of EU member States (or former member States) classified in certain enumerated subheadings of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States should be subject to additional duties of up to 100 percent. Frequency of Submission: One submission per periodic revision notice. Respondent Universe: Same as ‘Affected Public.’ Reporting Burden: Total Estimated Responses: 25,000 comments in response to each periodic revision notice. Total Estimated Annual Burden: USTR estimates that the average time to prepare and submit a comment PO 00000 Frm 00111 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 regarding whether a particular product should be subject to additional duties will take approximately 120 minutes and will cost about $200 per submission. The burden estimate includes all costs to prepare and submit a comment. The total time burden for comments is 50,000 hours, and the estimated total cost is $5,000,000. Status: Emergency review. Pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.13, USTR is requesting emergency processing for this ICR because it cannot reasonably comply with normal clearance procedures. USTR carefully evaluated the cost and complexity of establishing its own portal to receive and evaluate public comments based on the level of public interest in response to the first revision notice, the difficulties in processing the comments using Regulations.gov, and USTR’s experience in handling a large volume of public input in connection with the Section 301 Portal. USTR made the determination to move forward with the Large Civil Aircraft Dispute Portal as quickly as possible in advance of the expected next revision round. To meet the statutory schedule for revisions, USTR must open the Large Civil Aircraft Dispute Portal on or about June 23, 2020. Upon OMB approval of this emergency clearance request, USTR will follow the normal clearance procedures for the ICR. Janice Kaye, Chief Counsel for Administrative Law.

B. Overview of This Information Collection

    Title: Large Civil Aircraft Dispute Portal.
    OMB Control Number: N/A.
    Form Number(s): Large Civil Aircraft Dispute (LCA) Form.
    Description: Following an investigation, and nearly 15 years of 
litigation, the U.S. Trade Representative determined that the European 
Union (EU) and certain member States or former member States denied 
U.S. rights under the World Trade Organization (WTO) Agreement and 
failed to implement WTO Dispute Settlement Body recommendations 
concerning certain subsidies to the EU large civil aircraft industry. 
Pursuant to sections 301(a), 301(c), 304(a)(1)(B), and 306(b) of the 
Trade Act of 1974 (Trade Act) (19 U.S.C. 2411(a), 2411(c), 
2414(a)(1)(B), and 2416(b)), the U.S. Trade Representative determined 
to take action in the form of additional duties on products of certain 
EU member States, at levels of 10 or 25 percent ad valorem, as 
specified in the list of products included in Annex A of the October 9 
notice, effective October 18, 2019 (retaliation list). See 84 FR 54245 
(October 9, 2019).
    You can find background on the proceedings in this investigation in 
prior notices including 84 FR 15028 (April 12, 2019), 84 FR 32248 (July 
5, 2019), 84 FR 54245 (October 9, 2019), 84 FR 55998 (October 18, 
2019), 84 FR 67992 (December 12, 2019), 85 FR 10204 (February 21, 
2020), and 85 FR 14517 (March 12, 2020).

[[Page 31846]]

    Section 306(b)(2)(B) of the Trade Act requires the U.S. Trade 
Representative to revise the retaliation list unless certain conditions 
are met. Under section 306(c), the U.S. Trade Representative must make 
revisions 120 days after he took action, and every 180 days thereafter 
unless certain conditions are met. Before making revisions, section 
306(d) requires the U.S Trade Representative to seek public comments.
    The U.S. Trade Representative announced the beginning of the 120-
day review of the action on December 12, 2019. See 84 FR 67992 
(December 12 notice). The December 12 notice specifically requested 
public comments on:
     Whether the U.S. Trade Representative should remove 
products of specific EU member States from the list of products subject 
to additional duties or should remain on the list.
     if a product remains on the list, whether the U.S. Trade 
Representative increase the current rate of additional duty to as high 
as 100 percent.
     whether the U.S. Trade Representative should add 
additional EU products to the list. USTR received nearly 26,000 
comments in response to the December 12 notice. The U.S. Trade 
Representative announced certain revisions to the action being taken in 
the investigation on February 14, 2020. See 85 FR 10204 (February 21, 
2020), and 85 FR 14517 (March 12, 2020).
    Unless certain statutory conditions are met, the next 180-day 
revision is required on or about August 12, 2020. USTR anticipates 
receiving at least as many public comments as it received in response 
to the initial 120-day review. To assist in timely and comprehensive 
review and public availability of comments in response to notices of 
periodic revisions, USTR is establishing the Large Civil Aircraft 
Dispute Portal and requiring use of the LCA Form attached to this 
notice. In compliance with statutory requirements, USTR anticipates 
that it will begin accepting comments regarding the next possible 
revision around June 23, 2020. USTR will ask the public to provide 
comments on the same issues described in the December 12 notice.
    Affected Public: Those interested in commenting on whether certain 
products of EU member States (or former member States) classified in 
certain enumerated subheadings of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the 
United States should be subject to additional duties of up to 100 
percent.
    Frequency of Submission: One submission per periodic revision 
notice.
    Respondent Universe: Same as `Affected Public.'
    Reporting Burden:
    Total Estimated Responses: 25,000 comments in response to each 
periodic revision notice.
    Total Estimated Annual Burden: USTR estimates that the average time 
to prepare and submit a comment regarding whether a particular product 
should be subject to additional duties will take approximately 120 
minutes and will cost about $200 per submission. The burden estimate 
includes all costs to prepare and submit a comment. The total time 
burden for comments is 50,000 hours, and the estimated total cost is 
$5,000,000.
    Status: Emergency review. Pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.13, USTR is 
requesting emergency processing for this ICR because it cannot 
reasonably comply with normal clearance procedures. USTR carefully 
evaluated the cost and complexity of establishing its own portal to 
receive and evaluate public comments based on the level of public 
interest in response to the first revision notice, the difficulties in 
processing the comments using Regulations.gov, and USTR's experience in 
handling a large volume of public input in connection with the Section 
301 Portal. USTR made the determination to move forward with the Large 
Civil Aircraft Dispute Portal as quickly as possible in advance of the 
expected next revision round. To meet the statutory schedule for 
revisions, USTR must open the Large Civil Aircraft Dispute Portal on or 
about June 23, 2020. Upon OMB approval of this emergency clearance 
request, USTR will follow the normal clearance procedures for the ICR.
