In addition, the Commission has determined that this amendment to part 2 relates solely to the Association’s objectives which promote the welfare of Commission employees and does not in any way impinge on the Commission’s core mission. Therefore, the provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act, 5 U.S.C. 553, which generally require notice of proposed rule making and provide other opportunities for public participation, are inapplicable. Similarly, the provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, Public Law 96–354, 94 Stat. 1164, do not apply. See 5 U.S.C. 601(2). In addition, the amendment to 17 CFR part 2 does not impose a burden within the meaning and intent of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1980, 44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq. Provisions related to cost-benefit analysis, in section 15(a) of the Commodity Exchange Act, 7 U.S.C. 19, are also inapplicable. EFFECTIVE DATE: May 25, 2007.

Telephone: (202) 418–5120. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Currently, Commission regulations in 17 CFR part 2 preclude the use of the seal except for official purposes such as affixing the seal to official documents. The seal also may be used in agency-sponsored programs paid for with appropriated funds. For example, novelty items bearing the Commission seal may be distributed in employee incentive programs, award programs, and similar activities. The current rules, however, prohibit and preclude the use of the seal for non-official purposes. The proposed rule will allow the Commission seal to be used for legitimate, non-official purposes, i.e., on T-shirts and other sport apparels (i.e., hats, sweatshirts and pants, running shorts, wristbands, among others) and sport equipments (tennis rackets, golf clubs, etc.); and novelty items (bags, pens, pencils, lanyards, badge holders, mugs, cup holders, etc.) that can be sold by the Commission’s employee recreation association to meet its fundraising goals, or distributed in conjunction with its sport and/or social events such as a golf tournament and/ or other seasonal sport events.

Legal aspects: Cynthia Reese, Tariff Classification and Marking Branch, Office of International Trade, (202) 572– 8812. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The Dominican Republic—Central America—United States Free Trade Agreement (‘‘CAFTA–DR’’ or ‘‘Agreement’’) was entered into by the governments of Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and the United States on August 5, 2004. The CAFTA–DR was approved by the U.S. Congress with the enactment on August 2, 2005, of the Dominican Republic-Central America-United States Free Trade Agreement Implementation Act (the ‘‘Act’’), Public Law 109–53, 119 Stat. 462 (19 U.S.C. 4001 et seq.). Section 205 of the Act (19 U.S.C. 4034), as recently amended by section 1634(d) of the Pension Protection Act of 2006 (Pub. L. 109–280), implements Article 3.20 of the CAFTA–DR by providing for the retroactive application of the preferential tariff provisions of the Agreement with respect to certain entries of qualifying textile or apparel goods of eligible CAFTA–DR countries. Specifically, section 205(a) provides that, notwithstanding 19 U.S.C. 1514 or any other provision of law, an entry of a textile or apparel good will be liquidated or reliquidated at the applicable rate of duty for that good set out in Annex 3.3 of the Agreement, and the Secretary of the Treasury will refund any excess customs duties paid with respect to that entry, if it meets four conditions: (1) The textile or apparel good must be of a CAFTA–DR country that the United States Trade Representative has designated as an eligible country for purposes of section PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 29247 205; (2) The good would have qualified as an originating good under section 203 of the Act if the good had been entered after the date of entry into force of the Agreement for that country; (3) The entry was made on or after January 1, 2004, and before the date of the entry into force of the Agreement with respect to that country or any other CAFTA–DR country; and (4) Customs duties were paid in excess of the applicable rate of duty for that good set out in Annex 3.3 of the Agreement. Section 205(b) of the Act provides that the United States Trade Representative will determine which CAFTA–DR countries are eligible countries for purposes of this section and will publish a list of those countries in the Federal Register. Section 205(c) of the Act provides that liquidation or reliquidation may be made under section 205(a) with respect to an entry of a textile or apparel good only if a request for such liquidation or reliquidation is filed with CBP, within such period as CBP shall establish by regulation in consultation with the Secretary of the Treasury, that contains sufficient information to enable CBP: (1) To locate the entry or to reconstruct the entry if it cannot be located; and (2) to determine that the good satisfies the conditions set out in section 205(a). Section 205(d) states that, as used in section 205, the term ‘‘entry’’ includes a withdrawal from warehouse for consumption. On March 7, 2006, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) published in the Federal Register (71 FR 11304) as CBP Dec. 06–06 an interim rule that amended the CBP regulations by adding a new subpart J to Part 10 and new section 10.699 to set forth the conditions and requirements that apply for purposes of requesting refunds pursuant to section 205 of the Act. Pursuant to section 205(c) of the Act, the interim amendments included a provision establishing the time period within which requests for refunds of any excess customs duties paid with respect to entries of textile or apparel goods of an eligible CAFTA–DR country must be submitted to CBP. The interim rule provided that requests for refunds must be filed with CBP by the later of December 31, 2006, or the date that is 90 days after the entry into force of the Agreement with respect to that country. The interim rule also noted that section 10.699 provides that any refund of excess customs duties made pursuant to that section will be accompanied by interest from the date of the affected entry.

SUMMARY: The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (``Commission'' or

Futures Trading Commission Employee Recreation Association 
(``Association'') to use the Commission seal for permissible, ``non-
official purposes,'' e.g., fundraising, social, sports, and similar 
activities such as selling sports apparel and novelty items imprinted 
with the Commission's seal.
    The Commission finds that since the amendment to part 2 has no 
impact upon a member of the public, this amendment will become 
effective immediately upon publication in the Federal Register. In 
addition, the Commission has determined that this amendment to part 2 
relates solely to the Association's objectives which promote the 
welfare of Commission employees and does not in any way impinge on the 
Commission's core mission. Therefore, the provisions of the 
Administrative Procedure Act, 5 U.S.C. 553, which generally require 
notice of proposed rule making and provide other opportunities for 
public participation, are inapplicable. Similarly, the provisions of 
the Regulatory Flexibility Act, Public Law 96-354, 94 Stat. 1164, do 
not apply. See 5 U.S.C. 601(2). In addition, the amendment to 17 CFR 
part 2 does not impose a burden within the meaning and intent of the 
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1980, 44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq. Provisions 
related to cost-benefit analysis, in section 15(a) of the Commodity 
Exchange Act, 7 U.S.C. 19, are also inapplicable.

EFFECTIVE DATE: May 25, 2007.
