Title: Distribution of Continued Dumping and Subsidy Offset to Affected Domestic Producers (CDSOA).
OMB Number: 1651-0086.
Form Number: 7401.
Abstract: This collection of information is required to implement the Continued Dumping and Subsidy Offset Act of 2000 (CDSOA). This Act prescribes the administrative procedures, including the time and manner, under which antidumping and countervailing duties assessed on imported products are distributed to affected domestic producers that petitioned for or supported the issuance of the order under which the duties were assessed. The amount of any distribution afforded to these domestic producers is based upon certain qualifying expenditures that they incur after the issuance of the order or finding. This distribution is known as the continued dumping and subsidy offset. The claims process for the CDSOA program is provided for in 19 CFR 159.61 and 159.63.
CBP Form 7401 captures the information from claimants that CBP needs to determine how the distributions are made. This form is published in the Federal Register each year in order to inform claimants that they can make claims under the CDSOA program and also provide them with a copy of the form. The form can also be submitted electronically through http://www.pay.gov.
In order to expedite the distribution process, CBP proposes to add two data elements to both the paper form and the electronic form, including: “Start Date of Qualifying Expenditures” and “End Date of Qualifying Expenditures”.
Current Actions: This submission is being made to extend the expiration date with a revision to Form 7401 and to the on-line application.
Type of Review: Revision and extension of an existing information collection.
Affected Public: Businesses.
Estimated Number of Respondents: 2,000.
Estimated Time per Respondent: 1 hour.
Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 2,000.
