SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: I. Abstract The Quarterly Survey of Transactions in Selected Services and Intellectual Property with Foreign Persons (Form BE–125) is a survey that collects data from U.S. persons who engage in covered transactions in selected services or intellectual property with foreign persons. A U.S. person means any individual, branch, partnership, associated group, association, estate, trust, corporation, or other organization (whether or not organized under the laws of any State), resident in the United States or subject to the jurisdiction of the United States. A U.S. person must report if they had combined sales of covered services or intellectual property to foreign persons that exceeded $6 million for the previous fiscal year, or are expected to exceed that amount during the current fiscal year, or if they had combined purchases of covered services or intellectual property from foreign persons that exceeded $4 million for the previous fiscal year, or are expected to exceed that amount during the current fiscal year. The data are needed to monitor U.S. trade in services, to analyze the impact of these cross-border services on the U.S. and foreign economies, to compile and improve the U.S. economic accounts, to support U.S. commercial policy on trade in services, to conduct trade promotion, and to improve the ability of U.S. businesses to identify and evaluate market opportunities. The data are used in estimating the trade in services component of the U.S. international transactions accounts VerDate Sep<11>2014 23:06 May 04, 2021 Jkt 253001 (ITAs) and national income and product accounts (NIPAs). The Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) is proposing minor modifications to the existing transaction categories covered by the BE–125 survey and a change to the survey due date, beginning with reporting for first quarter 2022. The proposed modifications to the BE–125 survey would allow BEA to align its statistics more closely with international economic accounting guidelines and to increase the quality and usefulness of BEA’s statistics on trade in services. BEA proposes to eliminate the three transaction categories of other intellectual property. Rights to use other intellectual property (code 8.1), rights to reproduce and/or distribute other intellectual property (code 8.2), and outright sales or purchases of proprietary rights related to other intellectual property (code 8.3) would no longer be collected. BEA typically reclassifies transactions reported to BEA in these categories to research and development (R&D) services (transaction code 29.1, the provision of customized and non-customized R&D services; and, transaction code 29.2, other R&D services, including testing) and to other selected services (transaction code 42). With the elimination of the other intellectual property categories, respondents will be instructed to report transactions in these alternate categories. BEA also proposes to change the due date of the survey to 30 days after the close of each quarter from 45 days for the three quarters that are not the final fiscal quarter of the year. For the final fiscal quarter of the year, reports would be due 45 days after the close of the quarter instead of 90 days. Shortening the reporting timeline will allow BEA to produce more accurate and complete trade in services statistics in preliminary estimates of the ITAs, which is critical information for policymakers’ timely decisions on international trade policy. The earlier due date will allow BEA to use more reported data for preliminary statistics, improving the accuracy of both the aggregates and the country and servicetype details, and reducing revisions in subsequent statistical releases. In addition, the proposed reporting deadlines are also consistent with the reporting deadlines of BEA’s quarterly direct investment surveys. BEA estimates there will be no change in the average number of burden hours per response, which is currently estimated to be 21 hours. While survey respondents will have to file earlier, the burden for the survey is unchanged PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 because the same information will be required on the survey as in the past. The language in the instructions and definitions will be reviewed and adjusted as necessary to clarify survey requirements. II. Method of Collection BEA contacts potential respondents by mail at the end of each quarter. Respondents would be required to file the completed BE–125 forms within 30 days after the end of each fiscal quarter that is not the final fiscal quarter of the year and within 45 days after the close of the final fiscal quarter of the year. Reports would be required from each U.S. person that had combined sales of covered services or intellectual property to foreign persons that exceeded $6 million for the previous fiscal year, or are expected to exceed that amount during the current fiscal year, or that had combined purchases of covered services or intellectual property from foreign persons that exceeded $4 million for the previous fiscal year, or that are expected to exceed that amount during the current fiscal year. Entities required to report will be contacted individually by BEA. Entities not contacted by BEA have no reporting responsibilities. BEA offers its electronic filing option, the eFile system, for use in reporting on Form BE–125. For more information about eFile, go to www.bea.gov/efile. In addition, BEA posts all its survey forms and reporting instructions on its website, www.bea.gov/ssb. These may be downloaded, completed, printed, and submitted via fax or mail. III. Data OMB Control Number: 0608–0067. Form Number(s): BE–125. Type of Review: Regular submission. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit organizations. Estimated Number of Respondents: 8,800 annually (2,200 filed each quarter; 1,700 reporting mandatory data, and 500 that would file exemption claims or voluntary responses). Estimated Time per Response: 21 hours is the average for those reporting data and one hour is the average for those filing an exemption claim. Hours may vary considerably among respondents because of differences in company size and complexity. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 144,800. Estimated Total Annual Cost to Public: $0.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) has received requests to conduct administrative reviews of various antidumping duty (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) orders and findings with March anniversary dates. In accordance with Commerce’s regulations, we are initiating those administrative reviews. DATES: Applicable May 5, 2021. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Brenda E.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Commerce has received timely requests, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(b), for administrative reviews of various AD and CVD orders and findings with March anniversary dates. All deadlines for the submission of various types of information, certifications, or comments or actions by Commerce discussed below refer to the number of calendar days from the applicable starting time. Notice of No Sales If a producer or exporter named in this notice of initiation had no exports, sales, or entries during the period of review (POR), it must notify Commerce within 30 days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. All submissions must be filed electronically at https://access.trade.gov, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303.1 Such submissions are subject to verification, in accordance with section 782(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Further, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.303(f)(1)(i), a copy must be served on every party on Commerce’s service list. Respondent Selection In the event Commerce limits the number of respondents for individual examination for administrative reviews initiated pursuant to requests made for the orders identified below, Commerce intends to select respondents based on U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data for U.S. imports during the POR. We intend to place the CBP data on the record within five days of publication of the initiation notice and to make our decision regarding respondent selection within 35 days of publication of the initiation Federal Register notice. Comments regarding the CBP data and respondent selection should be submitted within seven days after the placement of the CBP data on the record of this review. Parties wishing to submit rebuttal comments should submit those comments within five days after the deadline for the initial comments. In the event Commerce decides it is necessary to limit individual 1 See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Electronic Filing Procedures; Administrative Protective Order Procedures, 76 FR 39263 (July 6, 2011). PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 23925 examination of respondents and conduct respondent selection under section 777A(c)(2) of the Act, the following guidelines regarding collapsing of companies for purposes of respondent selection will apply. In general, Commerce has found that determinations concerning whether particular companies should be ‘‘collapsed’’ (e.g., treated as a single entity for purposes of calculating antidumping duty rates) require a substantial amount of detailed information and analysis, which often require follow-up questions and analysis. Accordingly, Commerce will not conduct collapsing analyses at the respondent selection phase of this review and will not collapse companies at the respondent selection phase unless there has been a determination to collapse certain companies in a previous segment of this AD proceeding (e.g., investigation, administrative review, new shipper review, or changed circumstances review). For any company subject to this review, if Commerce determined, or continued to treat, that company as collapsed with others, Commerce will assume that such companies continue to operate in the same manner and will collapse them for respondent selection purposes. Otherwise, Commerce will not collapse companies for purposes of respondent selection. Parties are requested to (a) identify which companies subject to review previously were collapsed, and (b) provide a citation to the proceeding in which they were collapsed. Further, if companies are requested to complete the Quantity and Value (Q&V) Questionnaire for purposes of respondent selection, in general, each company must report volume and value data separately for itself. Parties should not include data for any other party, even if they believe they should be treated as a single entity with that other party. If a company was collapsed with another company or companies in the most recently completed segment of this proceeding where Commerce considered collapsing that entity, complete Q&V data for that collapsed entity must be submitted. Deadline for Withdrawal of Request for Administrative Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), a party that has requested a review may withdraw that request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. The regulation provides that Commerce may extend this time if it is reasonable to do so. Determinations by Commerce to extend the 90-day deadline will be made on a case-by-case basis.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    The Quarterly Survey of Transactions in Selected Services and 
Intellectual Property with Foreign Persons (Form BE-125) is a survey 
that collects data from U.S. persons who engage in covered transactions 
in selected services or intellectual property with foreign persons. A 
U.S. person means any individual, branch, partnership, associated 
group, association, estate, trust, corporation, or other organization 
(whether or not organized under the laws of any State), resident in the 
United States or subject to the jurisdiction of the United States. A 
U.S. person must report if they had combined sales of covered services 
or intellectual property to foreign persons that exceeded $6 million 
for the previous fiscal year, or are expected to exceed that amount 
during the current fiscal year, or if they had combined purchases of 
covered services or intellectual property from foreign persons that 
exceeded $4 million for the previous fiscal year, or are expected to 
exceed that amount during the current fiscal year.
    The data are needed to monitor U.S. trade in services, to analyze 
the impact of these cross-border services on the U.S. and foreign 
economies, to compile and improve the U.S. economic accounts, to 
support U.S. commercial policy on trade in services, to conduct trade 
promotion, and to improve the ability of U.S. businesses to identify 
and evaluate market opportunities. The data are used in estimating the 
trade in services component of the U.S. international transactions 
accounts (ITAs) and national income and product accounts (NIPAs).
    The Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) is proposing minor 
modifications to the existing transaction categories covered by the BE-
125 survey and a change to the survey due date, beginning with 
reporting for first quarter 2022. The proposed modifications to the BE-
125 survey would allow BEA to align its statistics more closely with 
international economic accounting guidelines and to increase the 
quality and usefulness of BEA's statistics on trade in services.
    BEA proposes to eliminate the three transaction categories of other 
intellectual property. Rights to use other intellectual property (code 
8.1), rights to reproduce and/or distribute other intellectual property 
(code 8.2), and outright sales or purchases of proprietary rights 
related to other intellectual property (code 8.3) would no longer be 
collected. BEA typically reclassifies transactions reported to BEA in 
these categories to research and development (R&D) services 
(transaction code 29.1, the provision of customized and non-customized 
R&D services; and, transaction code 29.2, other R&D services, including 
testing) and to other selected services (transaction code 42). With the 
elimination of the other intellectual property categories, respondents 
will be instructed to report transactions in these alternate 
categories.
    BEA also proposes to change the due date of the survey to 30 days 
after the close of each quarter from 45 days for the three quarters 
that are not the final fiscal quarter of the year. For the final fiscal 
quarter of the year, reports would be due 45 days after the close of 
the quarter instead of 90 days. Shortening the reporting timeline will 
allow BEA to produce more accurate and complete trade in services 
statistics in preliminary estimates of the ITAs, which is critical 
information for policymakers' timely decisions on international trade 
policy. The earlier due date will allow BEA to use more reported data 
for preliminary statistics, improving the accuracy of both the 
aggregates and the country and service-type details, and reducing 
revisions in subsequent statistical releases. In addition, the proposed 
reporting deadlines are also consistent with the reporting deadlines of 
BEA's quarterly direct investment surveys.
    BEA estimates there will be no change in the average number of 
burden hours per response, which is currently estimated to be 21 hours. 
While survey respondents will have to file earlier, the burden for the 
survey is unchanged because the same information will be required on 
the survey as in the past. The language in the instructions and 
definitions will be reviewed and adjusted as necessary to clarify 
survey requirements.

II. Method of Collection

    BEA contacts potential respondents by mail at the end of each 
quarter. Respondents would be required to file the completed BE-125 
forms within 30 days after the end of each fiscal quarter that is not 
the final fiscal quarter of the year and within 45 days after the close 
of the final fiscal quarter of the year. Reports would be required from 
each U.S. person that had combined sales of covered services or 
intellectual property to foreign persons that exceeded $6 million for 
the previous fiscal year, or are expected to exceed that amount during 
the current fiscal year, or that had combined purchases of covered 
services or intellectual property from foreign persons that exceeded $4 
million for the previous fiscal year, or that are expected to exceed 
that amount during the current fiscal year. Entities required to report 
will be contacted individually by BEA. Entities not contacted by BEA 
have no reporting responsibilities.
    BEA offers its electronic filing option, the eFile system, for use 
in reporting on Form BE-125. For more information about eFile, go to 
www.bea.gov/efile. In addition, BEA posts all its survey forms and 
reporting instructions on its website, www.bea.gov/ssb. These may be
