SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Citrus Canker; Interstate Movement of Regulated Nursery Stock and Fruit From Quarantined Areas. OMB Control Number: 0579–0317. Type of Request: Revision to and extension of approval of an information collection. Abstract: The Plant Protection Act (PPA, 7 U.S.C. 7701 et seq.) authorizes the Secretary of Agriculture, either independently or in cooperation with States, to carry out operations or measures to detect, eradicate, suppress, control, prevent, or retard the spread of plant pests, such as citrus canker, that jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:45 Jul 23, 2020 Jkt 250001 are new to or not widely distributed within the United States. Citrus canker is a plant disease that affects plants and plant parts, including fresh fruit of citrus and citrus relatives (family Rutaceae). Citrus canker can cause defoliation and other serious damage to the leaves and twigs of susceptible plants. It can also cause lesions on the fruit of infected plants and cause infected fruit to drop from trees before reaching maturity. The aggressive A (Asiatic) strain of citrus canker can infect susceptible plants rapidly and lead to extensive economic losses in commercial citrus-producing areas. The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service’s regulations to prevent the interstate spread of citrus canker are contained in ‘‘Subpart MCitrus Canker’’ (7 CFR 301.75–1 through 301.75–17). The regulations restrict the interstate movement of regulated articles from and through areas quarantined because of citrus canker and provide, among other things, conditions under which regulated nursery stock and fruit may be moved interstate. The interstate movement of regulated nursery stock and fruit from quarantined areas involves information collection activities including compliance agreements, limited permits, requests for Federal certificates, and appeals. We are asking the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to approve our use of these information collection activities, as described, for an additional 3 years. The purpose of this notice is to solicit comments from the public (as well as affected agencies) concerning our information collection. These comments will help us: (1) Evaluate whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of our estimate of the burden of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, through use, as appropriate, of automated, electronic, mechanical, and other collection technologies; e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. Estimate of burden: The public burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 0.2 hours per response. PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Respondents: Citrus growers and packinghouses. Estimated annual number of respondents: 367. Estimated annual number of responses per respondent: 37. Estimated annual number of responses: 13,644. Estimated total annual burden on respondents: 2,678 hours. (Due to averaging, the total annual burden hours may not equal the product of the annual number of responses multiplied by the reporting burden per response.) All responses to this notice will be summarized and included in the request for OMB approval. All comments will also become a matter of public record. Done in Washington, DC, this 20th day of July 2020. Michael Watson, Acting Administrator, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service.

    The products covered by this order are certain circular welded 
carbon steel pipes and tubes. The products are currently classifiable 
under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) 
subheadings: 7306.30.5025, 7306.30.5032, 7306.30.5040, and

Preliminary Results of this Review

    We preliminarily determine that the following weighted-average 
dumping margin exists for the period of May 1, 2018 through April 30, 
2019:

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of the final results, Commerce shall determine, and 
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries. If Shin Yang's weighted-average 
dumping margin is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent) 
in the final results of this review, we will calculate importer-
specific ad valorem antidumping duty assessment rates based on the 
ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer's 
examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). We will instruct CBP to assess 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review 
when the importer-specific assessment rate calculated in the final 
results of this review is not zero or de minimis. If Shin Yang's 
weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, we will instruct 
CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping 
duties. The final results of this review shall be the basis for the 
assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by 
this review and for future deposits of estimated duties, where 
applicable.\8\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In accordance with Commerce's ``automatic assessment'' practice, 
for entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Shin Yang 
for which it did not know that the merchandise was destined for the 
United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate those entries at the 
all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies)
