SUMMARY:

The U.S. Trade Representative is reviewing the action being taken in the Section 301 investigation involving the enforcement of U.S. WTO rights in the Large Civil Aircraft dispute.

The Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR) requests comments with respect to whether products listed in Annex I should be removed from the list or remain on the list; whether the rate of additional duty on specific products should be increased up to a level of 100 percent; whether additional duties should be imposed on specific products listed in Annex II; and on the rate of additional duty to be applied to products drawn from Annex II.

DATES:

To be assured of consideration, submit comments by January 13, 2020.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Proceedings in the Investigation

For background on the proceedings in this investigation, please see the prior notices issued in the investigation: 84 FR 15028 (April 12, 2019), 84 FR 32248 (July 5, 2019), 84 FR 54245 (October 9, 2019), and 84 FR 55998 (October 18, 2019).

B. Review of the Action in the Investigation

The U.S. Trade Representative is reviewing the action being taken in the investigation. USTR invites public comments with respect to the maintenance or imposition of additional duties on the specific products of specific EU member states indicated on the lists in the Annexes to this notice. Annex I lists the specific products of specific EU member states that currently are subject to additional duties of 10 or 25 percent. See 84 FR 54245 and 84 FR 55998. Annex II lists products of EU member states for which additional duties of up to 100 percent previously had been proposed, but for which no additional duties have yet been imposed in this investigation. See 84 FR 15028 and 84 FR 32248.

With respect to products listed in Annex I, USTR invites interested persons to comment on whether specific products of specific EU member states should be removed from the list or should remain on the list, and if a product remains on the list, whether the current rate of additional duty should be increased to as high as 100 percent.

With respect to products listed in Annex II, USTR invites interested persons to comment on whether specific products of specific EU member states should be included on a revised list of products subject to additional duties, and the rate of additional duty (as high as 100 percent) that should be imposed.

USTR invites interested persons to address:

(i) Whether maintaining or imposing additional duties on a specific product of one or more specific EU member states would be appropriate to enforce U.S. WTO rights or to obtain the elimination of the EU's WTO-inconsistent measures, and/or would be likely to result in the EU implementing the DSB recommendations in the Large Civil Aircraft dispute or in achieving a mutually satisfactory solution.

(ii) Whether maintaining or imposing additional duties on specific products of one or more specific EU member states would cause disproportionate economic harm to U.S. interests, including small or medium-size businesses and consumers.

C. Requirements for Submissions

All submissions must be in English and sent electronically via www.regulations.gov. To submit comments via www.regulations.gov, enter docket number USTR-2019-0003 on the home page and click “search.” The site will provide a search results page listing all documents associated with this docket.

USTR will not accept hand-delivered submissions.

The www.regulations.gov website allows users to submit comments by filling in a “type comment” field or by attaching a document using an “upload file” field. USTR prefers that you submit comments in an attached document. If you attach a document, it is sufficient to type “see attached” in the “type comment” field. USTR strongly prefers submissions in Adobe Acrobat (.pdf). If you use an application other than Adobe Acrobat or Word (.doc), please indicate the name of the application in the “type comment” field.

File names should reflect the name of the person or entity submitting the comments. Please do not attach separate cover letters to electronic submissions; rather, include any information that might appear in a cover letter in the comments themselves. Similarly, to the extent possible, please include any exhibits, annexes, or other attachments in the same file as the comment itself, rather than submitting them as separate files.

Do not submit comments containing business confidential information (BCI) via www.regulations.gov. Instead, email any comments containing BCI to 301aircraft@ustr.eop.gov. The file name of the business confidential version should begin with the characters `BC'. For any comments submitted electronically containing BCI, the file name of the business confidential version should begin with the characters `BC'. Any page containing BCI must be clearly marked “BUSINESS CONFIDENTIAL” on the top of that page and the submission should clearly indicate, via brackets, highlighting, or other means, the specific information that is business confidential. If you request business confidential treatment, you must certify in writing that disclosure of the information would endanger trade secrets or profitability, and that the information would not customarily be released to the public. Filers of submissions containing BCI also must submit a public version of their comments. The file name of the public version should begin with the character `P'. The `BC' and `P' should be followed by the name of the person or entity submitting the comments. If these procedures are not sufficient to protect BCI or otherwise protect business interests, please contact the USTR Section 301 line at (202) 395-5725 to discuss whether alternative arrangements are possible.

USTR will post submissions in the docket for public inspection, except BCI. You can view submissions on the https://www.regulations.gov website by entering docket number USTR-2019-0003 in the search field on the home page.
