Effective July 6, 2018, the U.S. Trade Representative imposed additional 25 percent duties on goods of China classified in 818 eight-digit subheadings of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS), with an approximate annual trade value of $34 billion. See 83 FR 28710. The U.S. Trade Representative’s determination included a decision to establish a process by which U.S. stakeholders could request exclusion of particular products classified within an eight-digit HTSUS subheading covered by the $34 billion action from the additional duties. The U.S. Trade Representative issued a notice setting out the process for the product exclusions, and opened a public docket. See 83 FR 32181 (July 11, 2018) (July 11 notice). The July 11 notice required submission of requests for exclusion PO 00000 Frm 00192 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 46777 from the $34 billion action no later than October 9, 2018, and noted that the U.S. Trade Representative periodically would announce decisions. The U.S. Trade Representative has granted multiple sets of exclusions. In October and December 2019, and February 2020, the U.S. Trade Representative granted exclusions that are scheduled to expire on October 2, 2020. See 84 FR 52567 (October 2, 2019), 84 FR 69016 (December 17, 2019), and 85 FR 7816 (February 11, 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 scheduled to expire in October 2020. Accordingly, USTR invites public comments on whether to extend particular exclusions scheduled to expire on October 2, 2020, that were granted under the following notices of product exclusions: 84 FR 52567 (October 2, 2019); 84 FR 69016 (December 17, 2019); and 85 FR 7816 (February 11, 2020). 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 July 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 July 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 July 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, before an agency submits a proposed collection of information to OMB for approval, it must first publish a document in the Federal Register providing a 60-day comment period and otherwise consult with members of the public and affected agencies concerning each proposed collection of information. The OMB has promulgated regulations describing what must be included in such a document. Under OMB’s regulations (at 5 CFR 1320.8(d)), an agency must ask for public comment on the following: (i) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (ii) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (iii) how to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (iv) how to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, PO 00000 Frm 00197 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses.

Summary of the Collection of Information: NHTSA is seeking approval to conduct a National Survey of Speeding Attitudes and Behaviors by web and mail among a national probability sample of 7,013 adult drivers (and 152 adult drivers for a pilot survey), age 18 and older. Participation by respondents would be voluntary. Survey topics would include the extent to which drivers speed, driver attitudes and perceptions about speeding, reasons and motivations for speeding, and knowledge and attitudes towards countermeasure strategies to deter speeding. In conducting the proposed research, the survey would use computer-assisted web interviewing (i.e., a programmed, self-administered web survey) to minimize recording errors, as well as optical mark recognition and image scanning for the paper and pencil survey to facilitate ease of use and data accuracy. A Spanish-language survey option would be used to minimize language barriers to participation. Surveys would be conducted with respondents using an address-based sampling design that encourages respondents to complete the survey online. Although web would be the primary data collection mode, a paper questionnaire would be sent to households that do not respond to the web invitations. The proposed survey would be anonymous and the survey would not collect any personal information. This collection only requires respondents to report their answers; there are no record-keeping costs to the respondents.

49564 (September 20, 2019), 84 FR 52567 (October 2, 2019), 84 FR 69016 
(December 17, 2019), 84 FR 70616 (December 23, 2019), 85 FR 7816 
(February 11, 2020), 85 FR 15849 (March 19, 2020), 85 FR 20332 (April 
10, 2020), 85 FR 28692 (May 13, 2020), 85 FR 29503 (May 15, 2020), 85 
FR 33775 (June 2, 2020), 85 FR 35158 (June 8, 2020), 85 FR 41267 (July 
9, 2020), and 85 FR 42970 (July 15, 2020).
    Effective July 6, 2018, the U.S. Trade Representative imposed 
additional 25 percent duties on goods of China classified in 818 eight-
digit subheadings of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United 
States (HTSUS), with an approximate annual trade value of $34 billion. 
See 83 FR 28710. The U.S. Trade Representative's determination included 
a decision to establish a process by which U.S. stakeholders could 
request exclusion of particular products classified within an eight-
digit HTSUS subheading covered by the $34 billion action from the 
additional duties. The U.S. Trade Representative issued a notice 
setting out the process for the product exclusions, and opened a public 
docket. See 83 FR 32181 (July 11, 2018) (July 11 notice).
    The July 11 notice required submission of requests for exclusion 
from the $34 billion action no later than October 9, 2018, and noted 
that the U.S. Trade Representative periodically would announce 
decisions. The U.S. Trade Representative has granted multiple sets of 
exclusions. In October and December 2019, and February 2020, the U.S. 
Trade Representative granted exclusions that are scheduled to expire on 
October 2, 2020. See 84 FR 52567 (October 2, 2019), 84 FR 69016 
(December 17, 2019), and 85 FR 7816 (February 11, 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 scheduled to 
expire in October 2020. Accordingly, USTR invites public comments on 
whether to extend particular exclusions scheduled to expire on October 
2, 2020, that were granted under the following notices of product 
exclusions: 84 FR 52567 (October 2, 2019); 84 FR 69016 (December 17, 
2019); and 85 FR 7816 (February 11, 2020).
    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 July 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 July 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 July 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.

exclusion scheduled to expire in October 2020, commenters first must
