SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES A. Proceedings in the Investigation On April 12, 2019, the U.S. Trade Representative announced the initiation of an investigation to enforce U.S. rights in the World Trade Organization (WTO) dispute against the EU and certain EU member States addressed to subsidies on large civil aircraft. See 84 FR 15028 (April 12 notice). The April 12 notice contains background information on the investigation and the dispute settlement proceedings. The April 12 notice solicited comments on a proposed determination that, inter alia, the EU and certain member States have denied U.S. rights under the WTO Agreement, and in particular, under Articles 5 and 6.3 of the Agreement on Subsidies and Countervailing Measures (SCM Agreement) and the General Agreement VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:50 Aug 17, 2020 Jkt 250001 on Tariffs and Trade 1994 (GATT 1994), and have failed to comply with the WTO Dispute Settlement Body (DSB) recommendations to bring the WTOinconsistent subsidies into compliance with WTO obligations. The April 12 notice invited public comment on a proposed action in the form of an additional ad valorem duty of up to 100 percent on products of EU member States to be drawn from a list of 317 tariff subheadings and 9 statistical reporting numbers of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) included in the annex to that notice. On July 5, 2019, USTR published a notice inviting public comment on a second list of products also being considered for an additional ad valorem duty of up to 100 percent. See 84 FR 32248 (July 5, 2019). On October 2, 2019, the WTO Arbitrator issued a report that concluded that the appropriate level of countermeasures in response to the WTO-inconsistent launch aid provided by the EU or certain member States to their large civil aircraft domestic industry is approximately $7.5 billion annually. On October 9, 2019, the U.S. Trade Representative published a determination that the EU and certain member States have denied U.S. rights under the WTO Agreement and have failed to implement DSB recommendations concerning certain subsidies to the EU large civil aircraft industry. The U.S. Trade Representative determined to take action in the form of additional duties on products of certain member States of the EU, at levels of 10 or 25 percent ad valorem, effective October 18, 2019. See 84 FR 54245 (October 9, 2019) and 84 FR 55998 (October 18, 2019). On December 12, 2019, the U.S. Trade Representative announced a review of the action and invited public comments regarding potential revisions. See 84 FR 67992 (December 12, 2019). On February 14, 2020, the U.S. Trade Representative announced a determination to modify the list of nonaircraft products subject to 25 percent duty and to increase duties on certain large civil aircraft from 10 to 15 percent, effective March 5 and March 18, respectively. See 85 FR 10204 (Feb. 21, 2020) and 85 FR 14517 (March 12, 2020). On June 26, 2020, the U.S. Trade Representative published a notice announcing another review of the action and establishing a docket to receive public comments. See 85 FR 38488. The June 26 notice included a proposal to impose additional duties of up to 100 PO 00000 Frm 00070 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 percent on a new list of products of France, Germany, Spain and the United Kingdom, covered by 30 tariff subheadings with an approximate annual trade value of $3.1 billion. See 85 FR 38488 (June 26, 2020) and 85 FR 39661 (July 1, 2020). The notice invited interested persons to comment on whether products of specific current or former EU member States should be removed from the list of products subject to additional duties or should remain on the list; if a product remains on the list, whether the current rate of additional duty should be increased to as high as 100 percent; and whether additional products should be added to the list. In response to the notice, USTR received approximately 24,000 public comments. B. Revision of Action Section 306(b)(2)(B)(i) of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended, provides in pertinent part that the ‘‘Trade Representative shall periodically revise the [retaliation] list or action to affect other goods of the country or countries that have failed to implement the [WTO Dispute Settlement Body] recommendation.’’ Section 306(b)(2)(B)(ii) provides that no revision is required under section 306(b)(2)(B) if the U.S. Trade Representative determines that implementation of the DSB’s recommendations is imminent, or the U.S. Trade Representative agrees with the affected industry concerned that revision of the list is not necessary. The U.S. Trade Representative has not determined that the circumstances set forth in section 306(b)(2)(B)(ii) currently apply, and accordingly has determined to revise the action being taken in the investigation. The EU has not taken any action on six of the launch aid measures found in the WTO compliance proceedings to continue to be WTOinconsistent. Furthermore, although the European Commission recently announced amendments to French and Spanish Airbus A350 XWB launch aid contracts, these actions do not implement the DSB’s recommendations by withdrawing the subsidies received by Airbus. Section 306(b)(2)(D) provides in pertinent part that in revising any list or action, the U.S. Trade Representative ‘‘shall act in a manner that is most likely to result in the country or countries implementing the recommendations adopted in the dispute settlement proceeding or in achieving mutually satisfactory solution to the issue that gave rise to the dispute settlement proceeding.’’ The modifications to the Section 301 action announced in this Notice are in E:\FR\FM\18AUN1.SGM 18AUN1 50867 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 160 / Tuesday, August 18, 2020 / Notices accordance with the statutory objective, and take into account the public comments, any advice of advisory committees, and the advice of the Section 301 committee. In accordance with section 306(b)(2)(F) of the Trade Act (19 U.S.C. 2416(b)(2)(F)), the revised action includes reciprocal goods of the affected industry. The annual trade value of the tariff subheadings subject to additional duties under the revised action remains at approximately $7.5 billion, which is consistent with the WTO Arbitrator’s finding on the appropriate level of countermeasures. As specified in the Annex 1 to this notice, the U.S. Trade Representative has determined to alter the composition of the list of non-aircraft products subject to additional duties. The level of additional duties on non-aircraft products will remain at 25 percent. In addition, the additional duty on certain large civil aircraft will remain at 15 percent. Annex 1 to this Notice identifies the products affected by the revised action, the rate of duty to be assessed, and the current or former EU member States affected. Annex 2, section 1, contains the unofficial descriptive list of the revisions made by this Notice. Annex 2, section 2, contains an unofficial, consolidated description of the action, reflecting the changes in Annex 1. In order to implement this determination, effective September 1, 2020, subchapter III of chapter 99 of the HTSUS is modified by Annex 1 to this notice. The additional duties provided for in the HTSUS subheadings established by Annex 1 apply in addition to all other applicable duties, fees, exactions, and charges. Any product listed in Annex 1 to this notice, except any product that is eligible for admission under ‘domestic status’ as defined in 19 CFR 146.43, which is subject to the additional duty imposed by this determination, and is admitted into a U.S. foreign trade zone on or after 12:01 a.m. eastern daylight savings time on September 1, 2020, only may be admitted as ‘privileged foreign status’ as defined in 19 CFR 146.41. Such products will be subject upon entry for consumption to any ad valorem rates of duty or quantitative limitations related to the classification under the applicable HTSUS subheading. The U.S. Trade Representative will continue to consider the action taken in this investigation. As stated in the February 21, 2020, notice, the U.S. Trade Representative has determined that the action may be revised as appropriate immediately upon any imposition of additional duties on U.S. products in connection with the Large Civil Aircraft dispute or with the EU’s WTO challenge to the alleged subsidization of U.S. large civil aircraft.

Type of Request: Renewal of a currently approved collection. Respondents: Motor carriers. Estimated Number of Respondents: 89,270. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:50 Aug 17, 2020 Jkt 250001 Estimated Number of Responses: 184,749. Estimated Time per Response: 18 minutes. Expiration Date: September 30, 2020. Frequency of Response: On occasion. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 55,425 burden hours (184,749 accidents × 18 minutes per response/60 minutes in an hour = 55,425 hours). Definitions: ‘‘Accident’’ is an occurrence involving a CMV operating on a highway in interstate or intrastate commerce that results in (1) a fatality; (2) bodily injury to a person who, as a result of the injury, receives medical treatment away from the scene of the accident; or (3) one or more motor vehicles incurring disabling damage as a result of the accident, requiring the motor vehicle(s) to be transported away from the scene by a tow truck or other motor vehicle. The term accident does not include (i) an occurrence involving only boarding or alighting from a stationary motor vehicle, or (ii) an occurrence involving only the loading or unloading of cargo (49 CFR 390.5). Background Title 49 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Section 390.15(b), requires motor carriers to make certain specified records and information pertaining to CMV accidents available to an authorized representative or special agent of FMCSA upon request or as part of an inquiry. Motor carriers are required to maintain an ‘‘accident register’’ consisting of information concerning all ‘‘accidents’’ involving their CMVs (49 CFR 390.15(b) (see ‘‘Definition: Accident’’ below). The following information must be recorded for each accident: Date, location, driver name, number of injuries, number of fatalities, and whether certain dangerous hazardous materials were released. In addition, the motor carrier must maintain copies of all accident reports required by insurers or governmental entities. Motor carriers must maintain this information for three years after the date of the accident. Section 390.15 does not require motor carriers to submit any information or records to FMCSA or any other party. This ICR supports the DOT strategic goal of safety. By requiring motor carriers to gather and record information concerning CMV accidents, FMCSA is strengthening its ability to assess the safety performance of motor carriers. This information is a valuable resource in Agency initiatives to prevent, and reduce the severity of, CMV crashes. The Agency has modified several of its estimates for this ICR. The estimated number of annual respondents has PO 00000 Frm 00078 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 decreased substantially, while the numbers of responses, burden hours, and annual costs to respondents have increased. Explanations for these changes are summarized below. The previously-approved number of annual respondents is 866,122. This estimate was based on records of all interstate and intrastate motor carriers with ‘‘recent activity’’ in the Motor Carrier Management Information System (MCMIS) for calendar year 2015. However, not all of these motor carriers experience a DOT-reportable crash every calendar year. To more accurately estimate the annual number of respondents, we looked at the carriers associated with crashes reported in MCMIS for calendar years 2016 through 2018 and calculated the annual average. This gave us a significantly reduced estimate of 89,270 respondents per year. The previously-approved burden is 36,157 burden hours. The Agency increases its estimate to 55,425 burden hours. The text of section 390.15(b) is unchanged; the increase in burden hours does not reflect changes in the requirements for accident recordkeeping. The adjustment in annual burden hours is due to a revised estimate of the number of reportable accidents from 120,522 to 184,749 per year, using interstate and intrastate DOT-reportable motor carrier crash records in MCMIS for calendar years 2016 through 2018. In the previous iteration of this ICR, only crash records for calendar year 2015 were considered, and only crashes for carriers with a DOT number and ‘‘recent activity’’ in MCMIS were included. In the current iteration of this ICR, we include recorded crashes in which there is not a recorded DOT number, but the CRASH_CARRIER_ INTERSTATE field in MCMIS is coded as ‘‘Interstate’’ or ‘‘Intrastate’’ (thus suggesting that they are commercial carriers). This change in approach has resulted in an increased estimate of annual crashes subject to the Accident Register reporting requirements, and thus an increase in the number of responses, as each crash is associated with one response. The revised version of this ICR includes estimated labor costs associated with maintaining the Accident Register. The previous iteration of this ICR did not include such an estimate; it only reported the estimated annual burden hours. The estimated annual labor cost for industry resulting from the Accident Register reporting requirements is $1,860,617. Finally, the estimated annual cost associated with accident recordkeeping (outside of labor costs) is increased from $8,437 to $106,785. In the previous E:\FR\FM\18AUN1.SGM 18AUN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Proceedings in the Investigation

    On April 12, 2019, the U.S. Trade Representative announced the 
initiation of an investigation to enforce U.S. rights in the World 
Trade Organization (WTO) dispute against the EU and certain EU member 
States addressed to subsidies on large civil aircraft. See 84 FR 15028 
(April 12 notice). The April 12 notice contains background information 
on the investigation and the dispute settlement proceedings.
    The April 12 notice solicited comments on a proposed determination 
that, inter alia, the EU and certain member States have denied U.S. 
rights under the WTO Agreement, and in particular, under Articles 5 and 
6.3 of the Agreement on Subsidies and Countervailing Measures (SCM 
Agreement) and the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade 1994 (GATT 
1994), and have failed to comply with the WTO Dispute Settlement Body 
(DSB) recommendations to bring the WTO-inconsistent subsidies into 
compliance with WTO obligations. The April 12 notice invited public 
comment on a proposed action in the form of an additional ad valorem 
duty of up to 100 percent on products of EU member States to be drawn 
from a list of 317 tariff subheadings and 9 statistical reporting 
numbers of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) 
included in the annex to that notice.
    On July 5, 2019, USTR published a notice inviting public comment on 
a second list of products also being considered for an additional ad 
valorem duty of up to 100 percent. See 84 FR 32248 (July 5, 2019).
    On October 2, 2019, the WTO Arbitrator issued a report that 
concluded that the appropriate level of countermeasures in response to 
the WTO-inconsistent launch aid provided by the EU or certain member 
States to their large civil aircraft domestic industry is approximately 
$7.5 billion annually.
    On October 9, 2019, the U.S. Trade Representative published a 
determination that the EU and certain member States have denied U.S. 
rights under the WTO Agreement and have failed to implement DSB 
recommendations concerning certain subsidies to the EU large civil 
aircraft industry. The U.S. Trade Representative determined to take 
action in the form of additional duties on products of certain member 
States of the EU, at levels of 10 or 25 percent ad valorem, effective 
October 18, 2019. See 84 FR 54245 (October 9, 2019) and 84 FR 55998 
(October 18, 2019).
    On December 12, 2019, the U.S. Trade Representative announced a 
review of the action and invited public comments regarding potential 
revisions. See 84 FR 67992 (December 12, 2019).
    On February 14, 2020, the U.S. Trade Representative announced a 
determination to modify the list of non-aircraft products subject to 25 
percent duty and to increase duties on certain large civil aircraft 
from 10 to 15 percent, effective March 5 and March 18, respectively. 
See 85 FR 10204 (Feb. 21, 2020) and 85 FR 14517 (March 12, 2020).
    On June 26, 2020, the U.S. Trade Representative published a notice 
announcing another review of the action and establishing a docket to 
receive public comments. See 85 FR 38488. The June 26 notice included a 
proposal to impose additional duties of up to 100 percent on a new list 
of products of France, Germany, Spain and the United Kingdom, covered 
by 30 tariff subheadings with an approximate annual trade value of $3.1 
billion. See 85 FR 38488 (June 26, 2020) and 85 FR 39661 (July 1, 
2020). The notice invited interested persons to comment on whether 
products of specific current or former EU member States should be 
removed from the list of products subject to additional duties or 
should remain on the list; if a product remains on the list, whether 
the current rate of additional duty should be increased to as high as 
100 percent; and whether additional products should be added to the 
list. In response to the notice, USTR received approximately 24,000 
public comments.

B. Revision of Action

    Section 306(b)(2)(B)(i) of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended, 
provides in pertinent part that the ``Trade Representative shall 
periodically revise the [retaliation] list or action to affect other 
goods of the country or countries that have failed to implement the 
[WTO Dispute Settlement Body] recommendation.'' Section 
306(b)(2)(B)(ii) provides that no revision is required under section 
306(b)(2)(B) if the U.S. Trade Representative determines that 
implementation of the DSB's recommendations is imminent, or the U.S. 
Trade Representative agrees with the affected industry concerned that 
revision of the list is not necessary.
    The U.S. Trade Representative has not determined that the 
circumstances set forth in section 306(b)(2)(B)(ii) currently apply, 
and accordingly has determined to revise the action being taken in the 
investigation. The EU has not taken any action on six of the launch aid 
measures found in the WTO compliance proceedings to continue to be WTO-
inconsistent. Furthermore, although the European Commission recently 
announced amendments to French and Spanish Airbus A350 XWB launch aid 
contracts, these actions do not implement the DSB's recommendations by 
withdrawing the subsidies received by Airbus.
    Section 306(b)(2)(D) provides in pertinent part that in revising 
any list or action, the U.S. Trade Representative ``shall act in a 
manner that is most likely to result in the country or countries 
implementing the recommendations adopted in the dispute settlement 
proceeding or in achieving mutually satisfactory solution to the issue 
that gave rise to the dispute settlement proceeding.''
    The modifications to the Section 301 action announced in this 
Notice are in

[[Page 50867]]

accordance with the statutory objective, and take into account the 
public comments, any advice of advisory committees, and the advice of 
the Section 301 committee. In accordance with section 306(b)(2)(F) of 
the Trade Act (19 U.S.C. 2416(b)(2)(F)), the revised action includes 
reciprocal goods of the affected industry. The annual trade value of 
the tariff subheadings subject to additional duties under the revised 
action remains at approximately $7.5 billion, which is consistent with 
the WTO Arbitrator's finding on the appropriate level of 
countermeasures.
    As specified in the Annex 1 to this notice, the U.S. Trade 
Representative has determined to alter the composition of the list of 
non-aircraft products subject to additional duties. The level of 
additional duties on non-aircraft products will remain at 25 percent. 
In addition, the additional duty on certain large civil aircraft will 
remain at 15 percent.
    Annex 1 to this Notice identifies the products affected by the 
revised action, the rate of duty to be assessed, and the current or 
former EU member States affected. Annex 2, section 1, contains the 
unofficial descriptive list of the revisions made by this Notice. Annex 
2, section 2, contains an unofficial, consolidated description of the 
action, reflecting the changes in Annex 1.
    In order to implement this determination, effective September 1, 
2020, subchapter III of chapter 99 of the HTSUS is modified by Annex 1 
to this notice. The additional duties provided for in the HTSUS 
subheadings established by Annex 1 apply in addition to all other 
applicable duties, fees, exactions, and charges.
    Any product listed in Annex 1 to this notice, except any product 
that is eligible for admission under `domestic status' as defined in 19 
CFR 146.43, which is subject to the additional duty imposed by this 
determination, and is admitted into a U.S. foreign trade zone on or 
after 12:01 a.m. eastern daylight savings time on September 1, 2020, 
only may be admitted as `privileged foreign status' as defined in 19 
CFR 146.41. Such products will be subject upon entry for consumption to 
any ad valorem rates of duty or quantitative limitations related to the 
classification under the applicable HTSUS subheading.
    The U.S. Trade Representative will continue to consider the action 
taken in this investigation. As stated in the February 21, 2020, 
notice, the U.S. Trade Representative has determined that the action 
may be revised as appropriate immediately upon any imposition of 
additional duties on U.S. products in connection with the Large Civil 
Aircraft dispute or with the EU's WTO challenge to the alleged 
subsidization of U.S. large civil aircraft.

General Counsel, Office of the U.S. Trade Representative.
