More information on the arbitration mechanism may be found at https://www.privacyshield.gov/ article?id=ANNEX-I-introduction. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: ADDRESSES: I. Abstract The EU–U.S. Privacy Shield Framework was designed by the U.S. Department of Commerce (the Department) and the European Commission (Commission) to provide companies on both sides of the Atlantic with a mechanism to comply with data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the European Union to the United States in support of transatlantic commerce. On July 12, 2016, the Commission deemed the EU–U.S. Privacy Shield Framework adequate to enable data transfers under EU law, and on August 1, 2016, the Department began accepting selfcertifications from U.S. companies to join the program (81 FR 47752; July 22, 2016). On July 16, 2020, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) issued a judgment declaring as ‘‘invalid’’ the Commission’s decision on the adequacy of the protection provided by the EU– U.S. Privacy Shield and as a result the EU–U.S. Privacy Shield Framework is no longer a valid mechanism to comply with EU data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the European Union to the United States. That judgment does not relieve participants in the EU–U.S. Privacy Shield of their obligations under the EU–U.S. Privacy Shield Framework. The Department and the Commission are discussing the potential for an enhanced EU–U.S. Privacy Shield Framework to comply with the July 16, 2020 judgment by the CJEU. The Department continues to administer the Privacy Shield program while those PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 74981 discussions proceed. For more information on the Privacy Shield, visit https://www.privacyshield.gov/ welcome. As described in Annex I of the EU– U.S. Privacy Shield Framework, the Department and the Commission committed to implement an arbitration mechanism to provide European individuals with the ability to invoke binding arbitration to determine, for residual claims, whether an organization has violated its obligations under the Privacy Shield. Organizations voluntarily self-certify to the EU–U.S. Privacy Shield Framework and, upon certification, the commitments the organization has made to comply with the EU–U.S. Privacy Shield Framework become legally enforceable under U.S. law. Organizations that self-certify to the EU–U.S. Privacy Shield Framework commit to binding arbitration of residual claims if a European individual chooses to exercise that option. Under the arbitration option, a Privacy Shield Panel (consisting of one or three arbitrators, as agreed by the parties) has the authority to impose individualspecific, non-monetary equitable relief (such as access, correction, deletion, or return of the European individual’s data in question) necessary to remedy the violation of the EU–U.S. Privacy Shield Framework only with respect to the individual. The parties will select the arbitrators from the list of arbitrators described below. The Department and the Commission seek to maintain a list of at least 20 arbitrators. To be eligible for inclusion on the list, applicants must be admitted to practice law in the United States and have expertise in both U.S. privacy law and EU data protection law. Applicants shall not be subject to any instructions from, or be affiliated with, any Privacy Shield organization, or the U.S., EU, or any EU Member State or any other governmental authority, public authority or enforcement authority. The Department previously requested and obtained approval of this information collection (OMB Control No. 0625–0277), which expires on 1/31/ 2021, and now seeks renewal of this information collection. Although the Department is not currently seeking additional applications, it may do so in the future as appropriate. To be considered for inclusion on the EU–U.S. Privacy Shield List of Arbitrators, eligible individuals will be evaluated on the basis of independence, integrity, and expertise: Independence —Freedom from bias and prejudice.

Rescission of Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party that requested 
the review withdraws the request within 90 days of the date of

request for review, withdrew this request by the 90-day deadline. 
Accordingly, we are rescinding, in its entirety, the administrative 
review of the antidumping duty order on cold-rolled steel flat products 
from Japan covering the period July 1, 2019, through June 30, 2020.

Assessment

    Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to 
assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of cold-rolled

rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties 
required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for

intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days

responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply 
with

[[Page 74981]]

assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under
