The Department of Commerce will submit to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for clearance the following proposal for collection of information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. chapter 35).
Agency: International Trade Administration (ITA).
Title: Steel Import License.
OMB Control Number: 0625-0245.
Form Number(s): ITA-4141P.
Type of Request: Regular submission (extension of a currently approved information collection).
Burden Hours: 100,000.
Number of Respondents: 3,500.
Average Hours per Response: 10 minutes.
Needs and Uses: In order to monitor steel imports in real-time and to provide the public with real-time data, the Department of Commerce (DOC) must collect and provide timely aggregated summaries about these imports. The Steel Import License proposed by the Import Administration of the DOC is the tool used to collect the necessary information. The Census Bureau currently collects import data and disseminates aggregate information about steel imports. However, the time required to collect, process, and disseminate this information through Census can take up to 90 days after importation of the product, giving interested parties and the public far less time to respond to injurious sales.
Affected Public: Business or other for-profit organizations.
Frequency: On occasion.
Respondent's Obligation: Voluntary.
