OFFICE OF THE UNITED STATES TRADE REPRESENTATIVE
[Docket No. USTR-2019-0003]
Review of Action: Enforcement of U.S. WTO Rights in Large Civil
Aircraft Dispute
AGENCY: Office of the United States Trade Representative.
ACTION: Request for comments.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
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. Annex I to this
notice contains a list of products currently subject to additional
duties. Annex II contains a list of products, originally published in
the April 2019 and July 2019 notices in this investigation, under
consideration for the imposition of additional ad valorem duties of up
to 100 percent. 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.
ADDRESSES: USTR strongly prefers electronic submissions made through
the Federal Rulemaking Portal: https://www.regulations.gov, using
docket number USTR-2019-0003. Follow the instructions for submitting
comments in ``Requirements for Submissions'' below. To discuss whether
alternative arrangements to on-line submissions are possible, please

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. Find a reference to this notice and click
on the link entitled ``comment now!'' For further information on using
the www.regulations.gov website, please consult the resources provided
on the website by clicking on ``how to use regulations.gov'' on the
bottom of the www.regulations.gov home page. 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 [email protected]. 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.
