Provisional Measures Section 733(d) of the Act states that instructions issued pursuant to an affirmative preliminary determination may not remain in effect for more than four months, except where exporters representing a significant proportion of exports of the subject merchandise request Commerce to extend that fourmonth period to no more than six months. At the request of exporters that account for a significant proportion of collated staples from China, Commerce extended the four-month period to six months in the proceeding. In the underlying investigation, Commerce published the preliminary determination on January 8, 2020.6 The extended provisional measures period, beginning on the date of publication of the preliminary determination, ended on July 5, 2020. Therefore, in accordance with section 737(b) of the Act and our practice,7 Commerce will instruct CBP to terminate the suspension of liquidation and to liquidate, without regard to antidumping duties, unliquidated entries of collated staples from China entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption after July 5, 2020, the final day on which the provisional measures were in effect, until and through the day preceding the date of publication of the ITC’s final affirmative injury determination in the Federal Register. Suspension of liquidation and the collection of cash deposits will resume on the date of publication of the ITC’s final determination in the Federal Register.

Certain collated steel staples may be manufactured from any type of steel, and are included in the scope of this order regardless of whether they are uncoated or coated, and regardless of the type or number of coatings, including but not limited to coatings to inhibit corrosion. Certain collated steel staples may be collated using any material or combination of materials, including but not limited to adhesive, glue, and adhesive film or adhesive or paper tape. Certain collated steel staples are generally made to American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) specification ASTM F1667–18a, but can also be made to other specifications.

Also excluded are collated fasteners commonly referred to as ‘‘C-ring hog rings’’ and ‘‘D-ring hog rings’’ produced from stainless or carbon steel wire having a nominal diameter of 0.050 to 0.081 inches, inclusive. C-ring hog rings are fasteners whose legs are not perpendicular to the crown, but are curved inward resulting in the fastener forming the shape of the letter ‘‘C’’. D-ring hog rings are fasteners whose legs are straight but not perpendicular to the crown, instead intersecting with the crown at an angle ranging from 30 degrees to 75 degrees. The hog rings subject to the exclusion are collated using glue, adhesive, or tape.

ACTION: Notice of information collection, request for comment. AGENCY: The Department of Commerce, in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA), invites the general public and other Federal agencies to comment on proposed, and continuing information collections, which helps us assess the impact of our information collection requirements and minimize the public’s reporting burden. The purpose of this notice is to allow for 60 days of public comment preceding submission of the collection to OMB. DATES: To ensure consideration, comments regarding this proposed information collection must be received on or before September 18, 2020. ADDRESSES: Interested persons are invited to submit written comments to Adrienne Thomas, NOAA PRA Officer, at Adrienne.thomas@noaa.gov. Please reference OMB Control Number 0648– 0757 in the subject line of your comments. Do not submit Confidential Business Information or otherwise sensitive or protected information.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: I. Abstract Increasingly, user demand is reflecting a need for probabilistic forecasts in the 8 to 10-day time frame. Improved forecast capability means the NOAA National Weather Service Weather Prediction Center (WPC) can begin to address this user need, but the task is complicated by the range of possible forecast format and delivery needs and options. WPC is seeking usertested and informed guidance on how to present forecasts at the 8 to 10-day PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 43817 timeframe. WPC is looking to understand how probabilistic forecasts can improve core user decision-making in this range, and for guidance on the format and design of forecasts, based on iterative field-testing of core users. WPC requires a robust understanding of core user needs in this time frame, as well as explanation of the preferred web delivery methods and the optimal mix of design and delivery considerations. WPC also requires information about what products end-users are utilizing and how they are being used. To assess ways to improve guidance products for producing forecasts, the project will include meeting with forecasters, conducting phone interviews and webbased focus groups with core partners and posting an online public survey. The information will provide WPC staff with the guidance needed to develop 8 to 10-day weather prediction products. Creating easier to use visualizations and communication products will provide the public and decision-makers accurate information that is understandable and will enhance value for a variety of weather-related decision processes. Survey and focus group results will define how to present the probabilistic forecast tools clearly and concisely. II. Method of Collection The information collected via the online survey will make use of automated, electronic, mechanical, and other technological techniques. The online survey will use a ‘‘responsive’’ web-based survey, meaning that its display will adapt to a desktop or mobile device screen allowing the public to take the survey whenever they have internet access. The focus group data will be collected manually and entered directly into a desktop computer. III. Data OMB Control Number: 0648–0757. Form Number(s): None. Type of Review: Extension of a current information collection. Affected Public: Individuals or households and Business or other forprofit organizations. Estimated Number of Respondents: 775. Estimated Time per Response: 30 min for survey, 1 hour for interviews, 2 hours for focus groups. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 485 hours. Estimated Total Annual Cost to Public: None. Respondent’s Obligation: Voluntary. E:\FR\FM\20JYN1.SGM 20JYN1
