Request for Comments
Comments are solicited as to (1) whether the proposed information collection is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection; (3) the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) minimization of the burden of the proposed information collection on those who are to respond.
Summary of the Proposed Information Collection
In its Strategic Plan (available on the agency's World Wide Web site at http://www.usitc.gov) the Commission set itself the goal of obtaining feedback on the effectiveness of its exclusion orders from complainants who obtained such orders under 19 U.S.C. 1337. The survey asks each firm responding to the survey to: (i) Evaluate whether the remedial exclusion order has prevented the importation of items covered by the order, (ii) if not, estimate what are the absolute value and effect in the United States market of such imports and (iii) indicate what experience it has had in policing the exclusion order, particularly with respect to any investigatory efforts and any interactions with the U.S. Customs Service.
Responses to the survey are voluntary. The Commission estimates that the survey will require less than 1 hour to complete.Start Signature
