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) ways to enhance 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 FY 2013 Performance Plan (available on the agency's Internet server at​press_​room/​documents/​budget_​2013.pdf ), the Commission set the goal of obtaining feedback on the effectiveness of its exclusion orders issued under 19 U.S.C. 1337. The proposed survey is directed to entities that have obtained an outstanding exclusion order, and asks each such entity that responds to the survey to: (i) Evaluate whether the 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 U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

Responses to the survey are voluntary. The Commission intends to permit electronic submission of responses to the survey and estimates that the survey will require less than one hour to complete.
