SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION

I. Abstract
On March 8, 2018, the President
issued Proclamations 9704 and 9705
concurring with the findings of the two
reports and determining that adjusting
imports through the imposition of
duties on steel and aluminum is
necessary so that imports of steel and
aluminum will no longer threaten to
impair the national security. The
Proclamations also authorized the
Secretary of Commerce, in consultation
with the Secretary of Defense, the
Secretary of the Treasury, the Secretary
of State, the United States Trade
Representative, the Assistant to the
President for Economic Policy, the
Assistant to the President for National
Security Affairs, and other senior
executive branch officials as
appropriate, to grant exclusions from
the duties for domestic parties affected
by the duties. This could take place if
the Secretary determines the steel or
aluminum for which the exclusion is
requested is not produced in the United
States in a sufficient and reasonably
available amount or of a satisfactory
quality or should be excluded based
upon specific national security
considerations. The President directed
the Secretary to promulgate regulations
as may be necessary to implement an
exclusion process. The purpose of this
information collection is to allow for
submission of exclusions requests from
the remedies instituted in presidential
proclamations adjusting imports of steel
into the United States and adjusting
imports of aluminum into the United
States.
This collection of information gives
U.S. Companies the opportunity to
submit rebuttals to objections received
on posted exclusion requests and also
allows U.S. companies the opportunity
to submit surrebuttals for objections
they submitted that receive rebuttals
under the Section 232 exclusion
process. Adding a rebuttal and
surrebuttal process is an important step
in further improving the exclusion
request and objection process for
requesting exclusions from the remedies
instituted by the President. These
voluntary rebuttals and surrebuttals will
allow the U.S. Government to better
evaluate whether an exclusion request
should be granted based on the
information provided in an exclusion
request and taking into account any
objections to a submitted exclusion
request, rebuttals, and surrebuttals.
Many commenters on the March 19 rule,
referenced above, requested the
Department make this type of a change
to ensure that the process was fair and
the Department had all of the relevant
information when an objection to an
exclusion request received a rebuttal or
a surrebuttal was received.
