Document Number: 2017-00855
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-01-17
Agency: Food and Drug Administration, Department of Health and Human Services
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing the availability of a draft guidance for industry entitled ``Compliance Policy for Required Warning Statements on Small-Packaged Cigars.'' The draft guidance, when finalized, is intended to assist any person who manufacturers, packages, sells, offers to sell, distributes, or imports cigars in small packages, in complying with the warning statement requirements in FDA's regulations deeming all other products that meet the statutory definition of a tobacco product to be subject to Chapter IX of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act). The draft guidance describes FDA's compliance policy for cigars in packaging that is too small or otherwise unable to accommodate a label with sufficient space to bear the required warning statements. The draft guidance explains that FDA does not intend to take enforcement action with respect to cigars that do not comply with the size and placement requirements in the regulation when the information and specifications required under the regulation appear on the carton or other outer container or wrapper that could accommodate the required warning statements, or on a tag otherwise firmly and permanently affixed to the cigar package.

Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection
This notice announces that the effective date for the modifications to the National Customs Automation Program (NCAP) tests regarding Reconciliation, Post-Summary Corrections, and Periodic Monthly Statements is delayed until further notice. On December 12, 2016, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) published a notice in the Federal Register announcing modifications to the National Customs Automation Program (NCAP) test regarding reconciliation, and the transition of the test from the Automated Commercial System (ACS) to the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE). The modifications made by this notice were to be effective on January 14, 2017. On December 12, 2016, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) published in the Federal Register a document announcing CBP's plans to modify and clarify the National Customs Automation Program (NCAP) test regarding Post-Summary Correction (PSC) claims to entry summaries that are filed in the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE), as well as the Periodic Monthly Statement (PMS) test. The notice liberalized and eliminated some requirements needed for the filing of PSCs; however, it also placed burdens on the importer in the form of a restriction and a prohibition. Subsequently, CBP published a notice in the Federal Register on January 9, 2017, to remove the restriction imposed on all PSC filings to make payments within three business days of submitting the PSC, with the exception of entry type 03 filings, and to remove the prohibition of filing additional PSCs until additional duties, fees and taxes are deposited. The changes to the PSC and PMS tests were to have been effective January 14, 2017.

Revisions to Sudan Licensing Policy
Document Number: 2017-00836
Type: Rule
Date: 2017-01-17
Agency: Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security
This rule revises the policy of review for applications for licenses to export or reexport to Sudan certain items that are intended to ensure the safety of civil aviation or the safe operation of fixed- wing, commercial passenger aircraft. Such applications will now be reviewed under a general policy of approval rather than a general policy of denial. This rule also revises the review policy from a general policy of denial to a general policy of approval for applications for licenses to export or reexport to Sudan certain items for use to inspect, design, construct, operate, improve, maintain, repair, overhaul or refurbish railroads in Sudan. This rule does not create any new license requirements or remove any existing license requirements for exports or reexports to Sudan. BIS is making these licensing policy changes in connection with ongoing U.S.-Sudan bilateral engagement, and with the aim of enhancing the safety of Sudan's civil aviation and improving the country's railroads. This action takes into account the United States' goals to improve regional peace and security. This rule also removes two instances of ``contract sanctity dates'' pertaining to the export and reexport of certain items to Sudan from the EAR that currently serve no practical purpose. BIS is taking these actions in coordination with the Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), which is amending the Sudanese Sanctions Regulations.
