Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 175 / Tuesday, September 14, 2021 / Notices
See 19 CFR 356.8(a).
See Notice of Antidumping Duty Orders: Carbon
and Certain Alloy Steel Wire Rod from Brazil,
Indonesia, Mexico, Moldova, Trinidad and Tobago,
and Ukraine, 67 FR 65945, 65947 (October 29,
aggregating the total amount of dumping
calculated for the examined sales of
each importer and dividing each of
these amounts by the total entered value
associated with those sales in
accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we
will instruct CBP to liquidate without
regard to antidumping duties any
entries for which the importer-specific
assessment rate is zero or de minimis.
For entries of subject merchandise
during the POR produced by Deacero for
which it did not know its merchandise
was destined for the United States, we
will instruct CBP to liquidate
unreviewed entries at the all-others rate
if there is no rate for the intermediate
company(ies) involved in the
transaction. For the companies not
selected for individual examination, we
will instruct CBP to apply an
assessment rate to all entries produced
and/or exported by those companies
equal to the dumping margin indicated
above. Commerce intends to issue
assessment instructions to CBP 41 days
after the date of publication of these
amended final results of review.
Cash Deposit Requirements
The following cash deposit
requirements will be effective
retroactively for all shipments of subject
merchandise entered, or withdrawn
from warehouse, for consumption on or
after August 18, 2021, the publication
date of the Final Results of this
administrative review, as provided by
section 751(a)(2) of the Act: (1) For
producers or exporters covered in this
administrative review, the cash deposit
rates will be the rates established in the
final results of this administrative
review; (2) for producers or exporters
not covered in this administrative
review but covered in a prior segment
of the proceeding, the cash deposit rate
will continue to be the company-
specific rate published for the most
recent period; (3) if the exporter is not
a firm covered in this review, a prior
review, or the original investigation, but
the producer is, then the cash deposit
rate will be the rate established for the
most recent period for the producer of
the merchandise; and (4) the cash
deposit rate for all other producers or
exporters will continue to be 20.11
percent, the all-others rate established
in the investigation.
These cash deposit
requirements, when imposed, shall
remain in effect until further notice.
Notification to Importers
This notice also serves as a final
reminder to importers of their
responsibility under 19 CFR
351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate
regarding the reimbursement of
antidumping duties prior to liquidation
of the relevant entries during this
review period. Failure to comply with
this requirement could result in
Commerce’s presumption that
reimbursement of antidumping duties
occurred and the subsequent assessment
of double antidumping duties.
Notification Regarding Administrative
Protective Order
This notice also serves as a reminder
to parties subject to administrative
protective order (APO) of their
responsibility concerning the
disposition of proprietary information
disclosed under APO in accordance
with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely
written notification of return/
destruction of APO materials or
conversion to judicial protective order is
hereby requested. Failure to comply
with the regulations and the terms of an
APO is a sanctionable violation.
Notification to Interested Parties
We are issuing and publishing this
notice in accordance with sections
751(h) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19
CFR 351.224(e).
Dated: September 7, 2021.

request for comment.
: The Department of
Commerce, in accordance with the
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995
(PRA), invites the general public and
other Federal agencies to comment on
proposed, and continuing information
collections, which helps us assess the
impact of our information collection
requirements and minimize the public’s
reporting burden. The purpose of this
notice is to allow for 60 days of public
comment preceding submission of the
collection to OMB.
: To ensure consideration,
comments regarding this proposed
information collection must be received
on or before November 15, 2021.

I. Abstract
Exoskeletons—sometimes called
wearable robots—are a very rapidly
expanding domain with a range of
applications and a broad diversity of
designs. NIST’s Engineering Laboratory
will be developing methods to evaluate
performance of exoskeletons in two key
areas (1) The fit and motion of the
exoskeleton device with respect to the
users’ body and (2) The impact that
using an exoskeleton has on the
performance of users executing tasks
that are representative of activities in
industrial settings and emergency
response applications. The results of
these experiments will inform future
test method development at NIST, other
organizations, and under the purview of
the American Society for Testing
Materials (ASTM) Committee F48 on
Exoskeletons and Exosuits.
For the first research topic, NIST will
be measuring the difference in
performance of a person wearing an
exoskeleton versus the person’s baseline
without the exoskeleton while
positioning loads and tools. The NIST
Position and Load Test Apparatus for
Exoskelons (PoLoTAE), which presents
abstractions of industrial task
challenges, will be used in this research.
NIST researchers will also develop
standard test methods to represent real
world applications for emergency
responders such as mobility tasks;

climbing over, around and thru
For the second research topic, NIST
will evaluate a method for measuring
the alignment of an exoskeleton to
human joint (knee) and any relative
movement between the exoskeleton and
user. Measurement methods prototyped
by NIST for evaluating exoskeleton on
mannequin position and motion will be
applied to human subjects to verify the
usefulness of optical tracking system
and designed artifacts worn by users as
measurement methods.
Participants will be chosen from
volunteers within NIST and adult NIST
visitors to participate in the study.
Gender and size diversity will be sought
in the population of participants. No
personally identifiable information (PII)
will be recorded unless subject consent
for PII disclosure is received. NIST
intends to publish information on the
analysis and results.
II. Method of Collection
Participants will give informed
consent prior to participating in the
research. Information may be collected
via a paper background questionnaire
which may include disclosure of health
information which may be relevant for
safety and research reasons. Data will be
collected using a combination of heart
rate monitor, video and still cameras to
collect time and subject activity to
correlate heart rate with activity and an
optical tracking system which detects
markers worn by the subject.
Participants will be asked to complete a
paper survey once data is collected for
the research.
