Notice of Petitions by Firms for Determination of Eligibility To Apply for Trade Adjustment Assistance, 55823-55824 [2020-19948]

Download as PDF 55823 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 176 / Thursday, September 10, 2020 / Notices number for the supplemental questions is 0607–1015. The supplemental questions were approved by OMB under an emergency clearance through November 30, 2020. This extension is needed due to the necessity to keep the 2020 ABS in the field through December 31, 2020. We seek approval for this extension by November 30, 2020. The additional questions are designed to measure work from home operations of businesses in 2019 to capture a baseline. If deemed warranted, next year’s ABS would propose adding the same or similar questions to understand work from home operations of businesses during the Coronavirus pandemic in 2020. ABS is designed to allow for incorporating new content each survey year based on topics of relevance. The ABS includes all nonfarm employer businesses filing Internal Revenue Service (IRS) tax forms as individual proprietorships, partnerships, or any other type of corporations, with receipts of $1,000 or more. The questions are part of Section A— Company Information. The questions are designed to measure three concepts, specifically for 2019 (prior to the Coronavirus pandemic): (1) Does the firm allow work from home? (2) To what degree are employees of the firm engaging in work from home? (3) What are the limiting factors for work from home? The supplemental questions are being collected in the ABS is to establish a baseline for the status of work from home prior to the coronavirus pandemic. These data are not available from any other source. The ABS is uniquely positioned to create these estimates, and we may want to ask these questions again in the future to see if the coronavirus pandemic has an immediate effect (in 2020) or longer run effect (in 2021) on businesses offering work at home options to their employees. The goal of adding work from home content would be to: • Create estimates of the number of businesses that provide work from home options for their employees by business characteristics (for example: Size, age, geography, industry) • Create percent of workers who are working from home by business characteristics (for example: Size, age, geography, industry) • Determine if businesses ability/ willingness to offer expanded work from home options to employees changed during the pandemic and if those options were temporary or appear to be more permanent conditions of employment within those businesses. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit organizations. Frequency: Annually. Respondent’s Obligation: Mandatory. Legal Authority: Title 13 United States Code, Sections 8(b), 131, and 182; Title 42 United States Code, Section 1861–76 (National Science Foundation Act of 1950, as amended); and Section 505 within the America COMPETES Reauthorization Act of 2010 authorize this collection. Sections 224 and 225 of Title 13 United States Code require response from sampled firms. This information collection request may be viewed at www.reginfo.gov. Follow the instructions to view the Department of Commerce collections currently under review by OMB.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background In accordance with sections 735(d) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.210(c), on July 22, 2020, Commerce published its affirmative final determinations in the less-than-fairvalue (LTFV) investigations of PET sheet from Korea and Oman.1 On September 3, 2020, the ITC notified Commerce of its final affirmative determinations that an industry in the United States is materially injured within the meaning of section 735(b)(1)(A)(i) of the Act, by reason of the LTFV imports of PET sheet from Korea and Oman.2 Scope of the Orders DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE International Trade Administration [A–580–903, A–523–813] Polyethylene Terephthalate Sheet From the Republic of Korea and the Sultanate of Oman: Antidumping Duty Orders Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce. SUMMARY: Based on affirmative final determinations by the Department of Commerce (Commerce) and the International Trade Commission (ITC), Commerce is issuing antidumping duty orders on polyethylene terephthalate sheet (PET sheet) from the Republic of Korea (Korea) and the Sultanate of Oman (Oman). DATES: Applicable September 10, 2020. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Katherine Sliney at (202) 482–2437 (Korea) or Matthew Renkey at (202) 482–2312 (Oman); AD/CVD Operations, Offices III and V, respectively, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 AGENCY: The merchandise covered by these orders is PET sheet from Korea and Oman. For a complete description of the scope of the Orders, see the Appendix to this notice. Antidumping Duty Orders On September 3, 2020, in accordance with sections 735(b)(1)(A)(i) and 735(d) of the Act, the ITC notified Commerce of its final determinations that an industry in the United States is materially injured by reason of imports of PET sheet from Korea and Oman.3 Therefore, Commerce is issuing these antidumping duty orders in accordance with sections 735(c)(2) and 736 of the Act. Because the ITC determined that imports of PET sheet from Korea and Oman are materially injuring a U.S. industry, unliquidated entries of such merchandise from Korea and Oman, which are entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, are subject to the assessment of antidumping duties. As a result of the ITC’s final affirmative determinations, in accordance with section 736(a)(1) of the Act, Commerce will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess, upon further instruction by Commerce, antidumping duties equal to the amount by which the normal value of the merchandise exceeds the export price or constructed export price of the merchandise, for all relevant entries of PET sheet from Korea and Oman. Antidumping duties will be assessed on unliquidated entries of PET sheet from Korea and Oman entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after March 3, 2020, the date of publication of the Preliminary Determinations,4 but will not include entries occurring after the expiration of the provisional measures period and before publication in the Federal Register of the ITC’s injury determination, as further described below. Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation In accordance with section 736 of the Act, Commerce will instruct CBP to continue to suspend liquidation of PET sheet from Korea and Oman as described in the Appendix to this notice which are entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of the ITC’s notice of final determination in the Federal Register. These instructions suspending liquidation will remain in effect until further notice. We will also instruct CBP to require cash deposits equal to the amounts as indicated below. Accordingly, effective on the date of publication of the ITC’s final affirmative injury determination, CBP will require, at the same time as importers would normally deposit estimated duties on this subject merchandise, a cash deposit equal to the cash deposit rates listed below.5 The allothers rate for each country applies to all producers or exporters not specifically listed. Estimated Weighted-Average Dumping Margins The estimated weighted-average dumping margins for each antidumping duty order are as follows: Weighted-average dumping margin (percent) Exporter/producer khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES Korea: Jin Young Chemical Co., Ltd.
