Interpretive Rule Concerning Classification of Baseball-Style Caps With Ornamental Braid
Document Number: 05-6398
Type: Notice
Date: 2005-03-31
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, Bureau of Customs and Border Protection, Customs and Border Protection Bureau
This document concerns the proper classification under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) of baseball- style caps featuring ornamental braid located between peak and crown. In an effort to achieve uniformity in the classification of this commodity, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has adopted as final a proposed interpretive rule whereby ornamental braid on a baseball-style cap, located between peak and crown in a width of \1/8\ of an inch or greater, will render the cap classifiable in the HTSUS as ``wholly or in part of braid.'' Conversely, such braid in a width of less than \1/ 8\ of an inch will result in a cap being classifiable in the HTSUS as ``not in part of braid.''
Announcement of Change to Merchandise Eligibility Requirements for Participation in Remote Location Filing Prototype Two
Document Number: 05-6397
Type: Notice
Date: 2005-03-31
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, Bureau of Customs and Border Protection, Customs and Border Protection Bureau
This notice announces a change to the merchandise eligibility requirements for participation in Remote Location Filing (RLF) Prototype Two. RLF will now be permitted for cargo that will be moved using immediate transportation (IT) and transportation and export (T & E) in-bond procedures. CBP has determined that the security risks previously associated with in-bond transactions have been greatly reduced due to the significant security and cargo-processing gains accomplished by the advance cargo information regulations set forth in CBP Dec. 03-32, published in the Federal Register (68 FR 68140) on December 5, 2003. CBP also realizes that as in-bond transactions are a mainstay of international transactions, permitting RLF in an in-bond context will enhance the Prototype's usefulness to the trade while simultaneously furthering CBP's modernization objectives.
