Overview of This Information Collection Title: e-Allegations Submission. OMB Number: 1651–0131. Form Number: None. Current Action: CBP proposes to extend the expiration date of this information collection. The time burden hours have been adjusted to account for the addition of the EAPA Allegations that have been added to this collection. Type of Review: Extension (with change). Affected Public: Businesses, Individuals. Abstract: U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) established the eAllegations program in June 2008 to create a central location for the public to report allegations of trade law violations. The information provided by the public enables CBP, in collaboration with our partners, to protect our economy from the effects of unfair trade practices and guard against the entry of products that could pose a threat to health and safety. The information collected through the portal includes the name individual filing the allegation (this individual may remain anonymous), their contact information, and information pertinent to the allegation of a trade law violation. This collection of this information is authorized by the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C.1202 et seq.), the Homeland Security Act of 2002 (Title 6, U.S.C. 101), and the Security and Accountability for Every Port Act of 2006 [‘‘SAFE Port Act’’] (Pub. L. 109– 347, Oct. 13, 2006). The e-Allegations website is accessible at https:// www.cbp.gov/trade/e-allegations/. Congress passed the Enforce and Protect Act (‘‘EAPA’’), in February 2016, as a part of the Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act (‘‘TFTEA’’) of 2015 (Pub. L. 114–125, Feb. 24, 2016). The EAPA legislation specifically was intended to improve trade law enforcement and duty collection for antidumping and countervailing duty orders, thus helping to create a levelplaying field for U.S. businesses. To that end, CBP designed an investigative process that provides for a multi-party, transparent, on-the-record E:\FR\FM\30SEN1.SGM 30SEN1
