They are then exported from China directly to the United States. At entry, the wheel caps are classified under the HTSUS subheading 8716.90.5060. Subsequent to their importation, they will be installed onto wheels for use on marine trailers, utility trailers, and recreational vehicles. The wheel caps themselves are stainless steel decorative discs that cover the central portion of the wheel. They may keep dirt away from the spindle nut and wheel bearings or to hide the lug nuts, and/or the bearing. They are not a functional part of a vehicle chassis. There are two varieties of substantially similar wheel cap at issue. The first is a single piece cap composed of stainless steel. The second is a twopiece cap which includes the stainless-steel main cap component and a small plastic cap that clips onto the front end of the steel cap. The plastic cap can be removed so that a technician may better access and lubricate the axle. Both varieties are utilized only for marine trailers, utility trailers, and recreational vehicles. 4 In accordance with 19 CFR 351.225(d)(2), within 30 days after the filing of a scope ruling application, if Commerce determines that it intends to address the scope issue raised in the application in another segment of the proceeding (such as a circumvention inquiry under 19 CFR 351.226 or a covered merchandise inquiry under 19 CFR 351.227), it will notify the applicant that it will not initiate a scope inquiry, but will instead determine if the product is covered by the scope at issue in that alternative segment. 5 See Notice of Clarification: Application of ‘‘Next Business Day’’ Rule for Administrative Determination Deadlines Pursuant to the Tariff Act of 1930, As Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005).

Further, please note that pursuant to 19 CFR 351.225(m)(1), Commerce may either apply a scope ruling to all products from the same country with the same relevant physical characteristics, (including chemical, dimensional, and technical characteristics) as the product at issue, on a country-wide basis, regardless of the producer, exporter, or importer of those products, or on a companyspecific basis.

The Following Selection Criteria Will Be Used for Each Mission

    Targeted mission participants are U.S. firms, services providers 
and organizations (universities, research institutions, or financial 
services trade associations) providing or promoting U.S. products and 
services that have an interest in entering or expanding their business 
in the mission's destination country. The following criteria will be 
evaluated in selecting participants:

organization, represented firm's or service provider's) products or 
services to these markets;
     The applicant's (or in the case of an organization, 
represented firm's or service provider's) potential for business in the 
markets, including likelihood of exports resulting from the mission; 
and
     Consistency of the applicant's (or in the case of an 
organization, represented firm's or service provider's) goals and 
objectives with the stated scope of the mission.

excluded from the application and will not be considered during the 
selection process. The sender will be notified of these exclusions.

Trade Mission Participation Fees

    If and when an applicant is selected to participate on a particular 
mission, a payment to the Department of Commerce in the amount of the 
designated participation fee below is required. Upon notification of 
acceptance to participate, those selected have 5 business days to 
submit payment or the acceptance may be revoked.
    Participants selected for a trade mission will be expected to pay 
for the cost of personal expenses, including, but not limited to, 
international travel, lodging, meals, transportation, communication, 
and incidentals, unless otherwise noted. Participants will, however, be 
able to take advantage of U.S. Government rates for hotel rooms. In the 
event that a mission is cancelled, no personal expenses paid in 
anticipation of a mission will be reimbursed. However, participation 
fees for a cancelled mission will be reimbursed to the extent they have 
not already been expended in anticipation of the mission.
    If a visa is required to travel on a particular mission, applying 
for and obtaining such a visa will be the responsibility of the mission 
participant. Government fees and processing expenses to obtain such a 
visa are not included in the participation fee. However, the Department 
of Commerce will provide instructions to each participant on the 
procedures required to obtain business visas.
    Trade Mission members participate in trade missions and undertake 
mission-related travel at their own risk. The nature of the security 
situation in a given foreign market at a given time cannot be 
guaranteed. The U.S. Government does not make any representations or 
guarantees as to the safety or security of participants. The U.S. 
Department of State issues U.S. Government international travel alerts 
and warnings for U.S. citizens available at https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/traveladvisories/traveladvisories.html/. Any question 
regarding insurance coverage must be resolved by the participant and 
its insurer of choice.

Definition of Small- and Medium-Sized Enterprise

    For purposes of assessing participation fees, an applicant is a 
small or medium-sized enterprise (SME) if it qualifies under the Small 
Business Administration's (SBA) size standards (https://www.sba.gov/document/support-table-size-standards), which vary by North American 
Industry Classification System (NAICS) Code. The SBA Size Standards 
Tool [https://www.sba.gov/size-standards/] can help you determine the 
qualifications that apply to your company.

Important Note About the Covid-19 Pandemic

    Travel and in-person activities are contingent upon the safety and 
health conditions in the United States and the mission countries. 
Should safety or health conditions not be appropriate for travel and/or 
in-person activities, the Department will consider postponing the event 
or offering a virtual program in lieu of an in-person agenda. In the 
event of a postponement, the Department will notify the public and 
applicants previously selected to

[[Page 15369]]

participate in this mission will need to confirm their availability but 
need not reapply. Should the decision be made to organize a virtual 
program, the Department will adjust fees, accordingly, prepare an 
agenda for virtual activities, and notify the previous selected 
applicants with the option to opt-in to the new virtual program.

U.S ICT and Energy Efficiency Trade Mission to the Western Balkans

Dates: October 23-28, 2022

Summary

    The United States Department of Commerce, International Trade 
Administration (ITA), is organizing a U.S. ICT and Energy Efficiency 
Trade Mission to the Western Balkans, with specific stops in Serbia and 
Montenegro on October 23-28, 2022.
    The ICT and Energy Efficiency Trade Mission to the Western Balkans 
is intended to include representatives from a variety of U.S. ICT, 
energy efficiency, and renewable energy technology manufactures, 
service providers, associations, and trade organizations. The mission 
will introduce the participants to foreign government experts and 
decision makers, service providers, end-users, and prospective partners 
whose needs and capabilities are best suited to each U.S. participant's 
strengths. Participating in an official U.S. trade delegation, rather 
than traveling to Serbia and Montenegro individually will not only help 
enhance the participants' ability to secure key business and government 
meetings in the Western Balkans, but also more effectively promote U.S. 
goods and services to a wider targeted audience. Mission participants 
will learn about regional priorities, policy and regulatory changes, 
and projects throughout the region. The purpose of the mission is to 
leverage the regional political and economic climate to help U.S. 
companies enter the markets or further expand their market share.
    The meetings will match the participants with potential business 
partners, distributors, and importers in in the two markets and wider 
region. Moreover, key local industry leaders will brief mission 
participants on local market conditions, needs and opportunities in the 
various regions, and domestic regulatory and policy issues that impact 
the two sectors.

Proposed Timetable

    *Note: The final schedule and potential site visits will depend on 
the availability of host government and business officials, specific 
goals of mission participants, and ground transportation.
