DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE The Federal Recreation Lands Enhancement Act (Title VII, Pub. L. 108–447) directed the Secretary of Agriculture to publish a six-month advance notice in the Federal Register whenever new recreation fees are established. Specifically, the Custer Gallatin National Forest will be implementing the following new fees: • Eldridge Cabin; $75 per night; • Sage Creek Cabin; $65 per night; • Falls Creek and Hells Canyon Campgrounds; $10 per night, with an additional $5 extra vehicle fee per night. • Battle Ridge Campground; $10 for single sites and $20 for double sites, per night, with an additional $5 extra vehicle fee per night (number of vehicles allowed per site varies by site capacity). This proposal was vetted through the U.S. Forest Service, Northern Region public involvement process, which included announcement of the proposal in local and regional media outlets, on the Forest internet and social media sites, and briefing of federal and local elected officials. The results of these efforts were presented to the local Resource Advisory Committees (RAC) for evaluation and recommendation to implement the new fees. Reasonable fees, paid by users of these sites and services, will help ensure the Forest can continue maintaining and improving the sites for future generations. A market analysis of surrounding recreation sites with similar amenities indicates the proposed fees are comparable and reasonable. Advanced reservations for the Eldridge and Sage Creek Cabins will be available through www.recreation.gov or by calling 1–877–444–6777. The reservation service charges an $8.00 fee for reservations.

Abstract The Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework was designed by the U.S. Department of Commerce (Department) and the Swiss Administration to provide companies in both Switzerland and the United States with a mechanism to comply with data protection requirements when transferring personal data from Switzerland to the United States in support of transatlantic commerce. On January 12, 2017, the Swiss Administration deemed the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework adequate to enable data transfers under Swiss law, and on April 12, 2017, the Department began accepting selfcertifications from U.S. companies to join the program (82 FR 16375; April 12, 2017). On September 8, 2020 the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC) of Switzerland issued an opinion concluding that the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework does not provide an adequate level of protection for data transfers from Switzerland to the United States pursuant to Switzerland’s Federal Act on Data Protection (FADP). As a result of that opinion, organizations wishing to rely on the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield to transfer personal data from Switzerland to the United States should seek guidance from the FDPIC or legal counsel. That opinion does not relieve participants in the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield of their obligations under the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework. The Department continues to administer the Privacy Shield program while those E:\FR\FM\28JYN1.SGM 28JYN1

Methodology

    Commerce conducted this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). For each 
of the subsidy programs found countervailable, we find that there is a 
subsidy, i.e., a government-provided financial contribution that gives 
rise to a benefit to the recipient, and that the subsidy is 
specific.\5\ The Issues and Decision Memorandum contains a full 
description of the methodology underlying Commerce's conclusions, 
including any determination that relied upon the use of adverse facts 
available (AFA) pursuant to sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See sections 771(5)(B) and (D) of the Act regarding 
financial contribution; section 771(5)(E) of the Act regarding 
benefit; and section 771(5A) of the Act regarding specificity.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Results of Administrative Review

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5), we calculated a 
countervailable subsidy rate for the producer/exporter under review for 
the period of January 1, 2018, through December 31, 2018 as follows:

completion of the administrative review, Commerce shall determine, and 
CBP shall assess, countervailing duties on all appropriate entries 
covered by this review. Commerce intends to issue assessment 
instructions to CBP no earlier than 35 days after the date of

Register. If a timely summons is filed at the U.S. Court of 
International Trade, the assessment instructions will direct CBP not to 
liquidate relevant entries until the time for parties to file a request 
for a statutory injunction has expired (i.e., within 90 days of 
publication).

Cash Deposit Instructions

    In accordance with section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, Commerce also 
intends to instruct CBP to collect cash deposits of estimated 
countervailing duties in the amount shown above for Yama, on shipments 
of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption on or after the date of publication of the final results of 
this review. For all non-reviewed firms, Commerce will instruct CBP to 
continue to collect cash deposits at the most recent company-specific 
or all-others rate applicable to the company, as appropriate. 
Accordingly, the cash deposit requirements that will be applied to 
companies covered by this order, but not examined in this 
administrative review, are those established in the most recently 
completed segment of the proceeding for each company. These cash 
deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.

administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the destruction of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written

conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to
