ACTION: General notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: This document announces the expansion of the Importer SelfAssessment Program (ISA) to include the Importer Self-Assessment–Product Safety Pilot (ISA–PS). The ISA–PS is a partnership that will be created among CBP, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), and importers which will strive to maintain a high level of product safety compliance, and to achieve the goals of the Interagency Working Group on Import Safety by working collaboratively to prevent unsafe imports. The ISA–PS is a voluntary approach to product safety compliance, which will provide recognition and support to participating companies. Application to the ISA–PS is open to all importers who are participants in the ISA. CBP and CPSC staff will designate a limited number of importers from the initial applicants and determine their eligibility for participation in the pilot program. This document contains information on the application process, the benefits, and continued participation requirements. DATES: Effective Date: This pilot program will be open to applications from qualified importers on October 29, 2008.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background ISA Program U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is committed to encouraging importers to share the responsibility for compliance with trade laws and regulations. In order to enable interested importers to participate in a program that allows them to assess their own compliance with CBP laws and regulations on a continuing basis, CBP (then known as the U.S. Customs Service, Department of the Treasury) announced the Importer SelfAssessment (ISA) program on June 17, 2002 in a notice in the Federal Register (67 FR 41298). The ISA program is a trade facilitation partnership program that recruits trade compliant companies in order to reduce both CBP and company resources required during entry and post entry, and to build cooperative relationships that strengthen trade compliance with trade laws. The ISA program is based on the premise that importers with strong internal controls achieve the highest level of compliance with CBP laws and regulations, and provides a means to recognize and support importers that have implemented such systems. Since the ISA program started in 2002, over 172 importers under 760 different Importer of Record numbers have been approved to participate in the program. The compliance measurement program has shown that ISA program participants have continued to hold the highest rate of compliance with major trade laws among major importing groups. In FY 2007, merchandise imported by ISA participants comprised 15% of the total value imported into the United States and the compliance rate for ISA importers was 99.4%. Import Safety On July 18, 2007, President George W. Bush issued Executive Order 13439, which established an Interagency Working Group on Import Safety (‘‘Working Group’’). The Working Group, a cabinet-level panel of designated members, includes CBP (acting as a designee of the Secretary of Homeland Security) and the Chairman of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). The mission of the Working Group is to identify actions and appropriate steps that can be pursued, within existing resources, to E:\FR\FM\29OCN1.SGM 29OCN1
