comment on proposed, and continuing
information collections, which helps us
assess the impact of our information

This notice allows for an additional 30

Agency: U.S. Census Bureau.
Title: Manufacturers’ Unfilled Orders
Survey.
OMB Control Number: 0607–0561.
Form Number(s): MA–3000.
Type of Request: Regular submission,
Request for an Extension, without
Change, of a Currently Approved
Collection.
Number of Respondents: 6,000.
Average Hours per Response: 30
minutes.
Burden Hours: 3,000.
Needs and Uses: The data collected in
the Manufacturers’ Unfilled Orders
(M3UFO) Survey will be used to
benchmark the new and unfilled orders
information published in the monthly
Manufacturers’ Shipments, Inventories,
and Orders (M3) Survey. The M3 Survey
collects monthly data on the value of
shipments, inventories, and new and
unfilled orders from manufacturing
companies. The orders, as well as the
shipments and inventory data, are
valuable tools for analysts of business
cycle conditions. The data are used by
the Bureau of Economic Analysis, the
Council of Economic Advisers, the
Federal Reserve Board, the Conference
Board, as well as businesses, trade
associations, and the media.
The monthly M3 Survey estimates are
based on a panel of approximately 5,000
reporting units that represent
approximately 3,100 companies and
provide an indication of month-tomonth change for the Manufacturing
Sector. These reporting units may be
divisions of diversified large companies,
large homogenous companies, or singleunit manufacturers. The M3 estimates
are periodically benchmarked to
comprehensive data on the
manufacturing sector from the Annual
Survey of Manufactures (ASM), the
Economic Census (shipments and
inventories) and the M3UFO Survey,
which is the subject of this notice. To
obtain more accurate M3 estimates of
unfilled orders, which are also used in
deriving M3 estimates of new orders, we
conduct the M3UFO Survey annually to
be used as the source for benchmarking
M3 unfilled orders data.
Additionally, the M3UFO data are
used to determine which North
American Industry Classification
System (NAICS) industries continue to
maintain unfilled orders; this is done in
order to minimize burden on businesses
by only requesting unfilled orders as
part of the monthly M3 Survey for
industries that still maintain unfilled
orders.
Unfilled orders data are not currently
collected in the ASM or the Economic

The Petition
On March 31, 2021, the U.S.
Department of Commerce (Commerce)
received a countervailing duty (CVD)
petition concerning imports of organic
soybean meal from India, filed in proper

VerDate Sep<11>2014

form on behalf of the Organic Soybean
Processors of America and eight
domestic processors of organic soybean
meal.1 On April 6, 2021, these
companies filed an amendment to
Volume I of the Petition and ‘‘a change
of petitioner’’ status on behalf of the
Organic Soybean Processors of America,
stating that the petitioners now
consisted of the Organic Soybean
Processors of America and seven
domestic processors (collectively, the
petitioners).2 The Petition was
accompanied by the antidumping duty
(AD) petition concerning organic
soybean meal from India.3
On April 5 and 15, 2021, Commerce
requested supplemental information
pertaining to certain aspects of the
Petition.4 The petitioners filed
responses to these requests on April 7,
9, and 16, 2021.5
In accordance with section 702(b)(1)
of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended
(the Act), the petitioners allege that the
Government of India (GOI) is providing
countervailable subsidies, within the
meaning of sections 701 and 771(5) of
the Act, to producers of organic soybean
meal in India, and that imports of such
products are materially injuring, or
threatening material injury to, the
domestic industry producing organic
soybean meal in the United States.
Consistent with section 702(b)(1) of the
Act and 19 CFR 351.202(b), for those
alleged programs on which we are
initiating a CVD investigation, the
Petition was accompanied by
information reasonably available to the
petitioners supporting their allegations.
Commerce finds that the petitioners
filed the Petition on behalf of the
1 See Petitioners’ Letter, ‘‘Petition for the
Imposition of Antidumping and Countervailing
Duties: Organic Soybean Meal from India,’’ dated
March 31, 2021 (the Petition).
2 See Petitioners’ Letter, ‘‘Organic Soybean Meal
from India: The Petitioners’ Amendment to Volume
I Relating to General Issues and Change of
Petitioner Status,’’ dated April 6, 2021 (General
Issues Amendment).

Imposition of Antidumping and Countervailing
Duties on Imports of Organic Soybean Meal from
India: Supplemental Questions,’’ (General Issues

Countervailing Duties on Imports of Organic
Soybean Meal from India: Supplemental
Questions,’’ both dated April 5, 2021; and
Commerce’s Letter, ‘‘Petition for the Imposition of
Countervailing Duties on Imports of Organic
Soybean Meal from India: Additional Supplemental
Questions,’’ dated April 15, 2021.

from India: Petitioners’ Response to Supplemental
General Questions,’’ dated April 7, 2021 (General
Issues Supplement), ‘‘Organic Soybean Meal from
India: Petitioners’ Response to Supplemental CVD
Questions,’’ dated April 9, 2021; and ‘‘Organic
Soybean Meal from India: Petitioners’ Response to
Additional Supplemental CVD Questions,’’ dated

domestic industry, because the
petitioners are interested parties, as
defined in sections 771(9)(C) and (E)-(G)
of the Act.6 Commerce also finds that
the petitioners demonstrated sufficient
industry support for the initiation of the
requested CVD investigation.7
Period of Investigation
Because the Petition was filed on
March 31, 2021, the period of
investigation (POI) for this CVD
investigation is January 1, 2020, through
December 31, 2020, pursuant to 19 CFR
351.204(b)(2).
Scope of the Investigation
The product covered by this
investigation is organic soybean meal
from India. For a full description of the
scope of this investigation, see the
appendix to this notice.
Comments on Scope of the Investigation
On April 5 and 9, 2021, Commerce
requested further information and
clarification from the petitioners
regarding the proposed scope to ensure
that the scope language in the Petition
is an accurate reflection of the products
for which the domestic industry is
seeking relief.8 On April 7, 2021, the
petitioners revised the scope.9 The
description of merchandise covered by
this investigation, as described in the
appendix to this notice, reflects these
clarifications.
As discussed in the Preamble to
Commerce’s regulations, we are setting
aside a period for interested parties to
raise issues regarding product coverage
(i.e., scope).10 Commerce will consider
all comments received from interested
parties and, if necessary, will consult
with interested parties prior to the
issuance of the preliminary
determination. If scope comments
include factual information,11 all such
factual information should be limited to
public information. To facilitate
preparation of its questionnaires,
Commerce requests that all interested
parties submit scope comments by 5:00
p.m. Eastern Time (ET) on May 10,
2021, which is 20 calendar days from
the signature date of this notice. Any
rebuttal comments, which may include
factual information, must be filed by
