Extension of Import Restrictions Imposed on Archaeological Material From Guatemala, 54538-54539 [07-4748]

Download as PDF 54538 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 186 / Wednesday, September 26, 2007 / Rules and Regulations Affected ADs (b) None. Applicability (c) This AD applies to Airbus Model A300– 600 series airplanes, all certified models, all serial numbers, certificated in any category. Subject (d) Time Limits/Maintenance Checks. Reason (e) The mandatory continued airworthiness information (MCAI) states: The aim of this AD, is to mandate airworthiness requirements in structural maintenance in accordance with the requirements defined in the AIRBUS A300– 600 Airworthiness Limitations Items (ALI) document issue 11, referenced AI/SE–M2/ 95A.0502/06, approved by EASA on 31 May 2006. Issue 11 of this document (refer to the Summary of Changes chapter for more details) deals in particular with the introduction of new tasks and the reduction of threshold and interval of some ALI tasks. Some other clarifications are also brought to some tasks like for example the access, the applicability period or the applicability. This AD supersedes DGAC AD F–2004–153, as it was mandating A300–600 ALI issue 9. The unsafe condition is fatigue cracking, damage, or corrosion in principal structural elements, which could result in reduced structural integrity of the airplane. Incorporating this revision into the Airworthiness Limitations Section (ALS) of the Instructions for Continued Airworthiness is intended to ensure the continued structural integrity of these airplanes. Actions and Compliance (f) Unless already done, within 3 months after the effective date of this AD, revise the ALS of the Instructions for Continued Airworthiness to incorporate Airbus A300– 600 Airworthiness Limitation Items (ALI) Document AI/SE–M2/95A.0502/06, Issue 11, dated April 2006. The tolerance (grace period) for compliance (specified in paragraph 2 of Section B—Program Rules) with Issue 11 of the ALI is within 2,000 flight cycles after the effective date of this AD, provided that none of the following is exceeded: (1) Thresholds or intervals in the operator’s current approved maintenance schedule that are taken from a previous ALI issue, if existing, and are higher than or equal to those given in Issue 11 of the ALI. (2) 8 months after the effective date of this AD. (3) 50 percent of the intervals given in Issue 11 of the ALI. (4) Any application tolerance given in the task description of Issue 11 of the ALI. rmajette on PROD1PC64 with RULES FAA AD Differences Note: This AD differs from the MCAI and/ or service information as follows: No differences.

L. 97–446, 19 U.S.C. 2601 et seq.), the United States entered into a bilateral agreement with Guatemala on September 29, 1997, concerning the imposition of import restrictions on archaeological objects and materials from the pre-Columbian cultures of Guatemala. On October 3, 1997, the former United States Customs Service published T.D. 97–81 in the Federal Register (62 FR 51771), which amended 19 CFR 12.104g(a) to reflect the imposition of these restrictions, and included a list designating the types of archaeological objects and materials covered by the restrictions. The restrictions cover Maya material from the Peten Lowlands and related preColumbian material from the Highlands and the Southern Coast of Guatemala. Prior to the issuance of T.D. 97–81, on April 15, 1991, the former United States Customs Service published T.D. 91–34 in the Federal Register (56 FR 15181), which imposed emergency import restrictions on certain archaeological material from the Peten Region of Guatemala. Under T.D. 91–34, § 12.104g(b) (19 CFR 12.104g(b)) of the regulations pertaining to emergency restrictions was amended accordingly. These emergency restrictions were extended for a period of three years on November 7, 1994, under T.D. 94–84 (59 FR 55528). Subsequently, the same archaeological material covered by T.D. 91–34 (and the extension of T.D. 94–84) was subsumed in T.D. 97–81 when it was published in 1997, at which time the emergency restrictions of T.D. 91–34 (and T.D. 94–84) were removed from § 12.104g(b). Import restrictions listed in 19 CFR 12.104g(a) are ‘‘effective for no more than five years beginning on the date on which the agreement enters into force with respect to the United States. This period can be extended for additional periods not to exceed five years if it is determined that the factors which justified the initial agreement still pertain and no cause for suspension of the agreement exists’’ (19 CFR 12.104g(a)). On September 30, 2002, the former United States Customs Service published T.D. 02–56 in the Federal Register (67 FR 61259), which amended 19 CFR 12.104g(a) to reflect the extension of these import restrictions for an additional period of five years until September 29, 2007. After reviewing the findings and recommendations of the Cultural Property Advisory Committee, and in response to a request by the Government of Guatemala, the Acting Assistant VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:42 Sep 25, 2007 Jkt 211001 Secretary for Educational and Cultural Affairs, United States Department of State, concluding that the cultural heritage of Guatemala continues to be in jeopardy from pillage of archaeological materials, made the necessary determination to extend the import restrictions for an additional five years on July 18, 2007, and diplomatic notes have been exchanged, reflecting the extension of the restrictions. Accordingly, CBP is amending 19 CFR 12.104g(a) to reflect the extension of the import restrictions.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    Pursuant to the provisions of the 1970 United Nations Educational, 
Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO)

[[Page 54539]]

Convention, codified into U.S. law as the Convention on Cultural 
Property Implementation Act (Pub. L. 97-446, 19 U.S.C. 2601 et seq.), 
the United States entered into a bilateral agreement with Guatemala on 
September 29, 1997, concerning the imposition of import restrictions on 
archaeological objects and materials from the pre-Columbian cultures of 
Guatemala. On October 3, 1997, the former United States Customs Service 
published T.D. 97-81 in the Federal Register (62 FR 51771), which 
amended 19 CFR 12.104g(a) to reflect the imposition of these 
restrictions, and included a list designating the types of 
archaeological objects and materials covered by the restrictions. The 
restrictions cover Maya material from the Peten Lowlands and related 
pre-Columbian material from the Highlands and the Southern Coast of 
Guatemala.
    Prior to the issuance of T.D. 97-81, on April 15, 1991, the former 
United States Customs Service published T.D. 91-34 in the Federal 
Register (56 FR 15181), which imposed emergency import restrictions on 
certain archaeological material from the Peten Region of Guatemala. 
Under T.D. 91-34, Sec.  12.104g(b) (19 CFR 12.104g(b)) of the 
regulations pertaining to emergency restrictions was amended 
accordingly. These emergency restrictions were extended for a period of 
three years on November 7, 1994, under T.D. 94-84 (59 FR 55528). 
Subsequently, the same archaeological material covered by T.D. 91-34 
(and the extension of T.D. 94-84) was subsumed in T.D. 97-81 when it 
was published in 1997, at which time the emergency restrictions of T.D. 
91-34 (and T.D. 94-84) were removed from Sec.  12.104g(b).
    Import restrictions listed in 19 CFR 12.104g(a) are ``effective for 
no more than five years beginning on the date on which the agreement 
enters into force with respect to the United States. This period can be 
extended for additional periods not to exceed five years if it is 
determined that the factors which justified the initial agreement still 
pertain and no cause for suspension of the agreement exists'' (19 CFR 
12.104g(a)).
    On September 30, 2002, the former United States Customs Service 
published T.D. 02-56 in the Federal Register (67 FR 61259), which 
amended 19 CFR 12.104g(a) to reflect the extension of these import 
restrictions for an additional period of five years until September 29, 
2007.
    After reviewing the findings and recommendations of the Cultural 
Property Advisory Committee, and in response to a request by the 
Government of Guatemala, the Acting Assistant Secretary for Educational 
and Cultural Affairs, United States Department of State, concluding 
that the cultural heritage of Guatemala continues to be in jeopardy 
from pillage of archaeological materials, made the necessary 
determination to extend the import restrictions for an additional five 
years on July 18, 2007, and diplomatic notes have been exchanged, 
reflecting the extension of the restrictions. Accordingly, CBP is 
amending 19 CFR 12.104g(a) to reflect the extension of the import 
restrictions.
    The Designated List of Archaeological Material from Guatemala 
covered by these import restrictions is set forth in T.D. 97-81. The 
Designated List and accompanying image database may also be found at 
the following internet Web site address: http://exchanges.state.gov/
culprop/gtimage.html.
    The restrictions on the importation of these archaeological 
materials from Guatemala are to continue in effect for an additional 5 
years. Importation of such material continues to be restricted unless 
the conditions set forth in 19 U.S.C. 2606 and 19 CFR 12.104c are met.

Inapplicability of Notice and Delayed Effective Date

    This amendment involves a foreign affairs function of the United 
States and is, therefore, being made without notice or public procedure 
(5 U.S.C. 553(a)(1)). For the same reason, a delayed effective date is 
not required under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3).

Regulatory Flexibility Act

    Because no notice of proposed rulemaking is required, the 
provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) do 
not apply.

Executive Order 12866

    Because this rule involves a foreign affairs function of the United 
States, it is not subject to Executive Order 12866.

Signing Authority

    This regulation is being issued in accordance with 19 CFR 
0.1(a)(1).

List of Subjects in 19 CFR Part 12

    Cultural property, Customs duties and inspection, Imports, 
Prohibited merchandise.

Amendment to CBP Regulations
