Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 34 / Monday, February 22, 2010 / Notices cprice-sewell on DSK2BSOYB1PROD with NOTICES to comply and, to be in compliance with the MOU, shall notify CBP within ten (10) days after becoming cognizant of this prohibition to comply. Further, in such instances the Carrier shall propose alternative means for meeting the objective sought by the paragraph in question. For instance, where review of foreign boarding procedures cannot be performed by CBP personnel, the Carrier could provide that an audit of its operation be performed by local authorities or by private auditors. 4. CBP Agreement 4.1 The Director, FP&F Division, Office of Field Operations, will serve as a coordinator for all fines issues arising from the implementation of this MOU. The Director, Alien Smuggling Interdiction (ASI), will serve as coordinator for all ASI issues arising from this MOU. The Director, Fraud Document Analysis Unit (FDAU) and the Carrier Liaison Program (CLP), and the Director, Passenger Programs, Immigration Advisory Program (IAP), as appropriate, will coordinate all CBP training, airline liaison officer, and on-site airport interdiction issues arising from this MOU. CBP shall provide the carrier with these offices’ coordinator’s names, addresses, telephone and facsimile numbers, and email addresses. 4.2 CBP agrees to publish a Carrier Information Guide to be used by Carrier personnel at all ports of embarkation prior to boarding passengers destined to the United States. The Carrier Information Guide will function as a resource to assist Carrier personnel in determining proper documentary requirements and detecting fraud. 4.3 CBP agrees to develop a formal, continuing training program to assist carriers in their screening of passengers. Carriers may provide input to CBP concerning specific training needs that they have identified. Initial and refresher training, as necessary, will be conducted by CBP or Carrier representatives trained by CBP. 4.4 To the extent possible, CBP, DOS Consular officials, or other USG personnel will consult, support, and assist the Carrier’s efforts to screen passengers prior to boarding. 4.5 CBP shall determine each Carrier’s Performance Level (PL), based on statistical analysis of the Carrier’s performance, as a means of evaluating whether the Carrier has successfully screened all of its passengers in accordance with 8 CFR 273.3 and this MOU. The PL is determined by taking the number of each Carrier’s violations of section 273 of the INA for a fiscal year and dividing this by the number of documented nonimmigrants transported by the Carrier and multiplying the result by 1,000. Documented nonimmigrants are those that are subject to the Arrival/Departure Record (CBP Form I–94 or I–94W) requirement, either to submit one upon arrival at a U.S. port or to have an electronic equivalent and corresponding admission record created at time of arrival based on information submitted electronically prior to travel. 4.6 CBP shall establish an Acceptable Performance Level (APL), based on statistical analysis of the performance of all carriers, as a means of evaluating whether the Carrier has VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:26 Feb 19, 2010 Jkt 220001 successfully screened all of its passengers in accordance with 8 CFR 273.3 and this MOU. The APL shall be determined by taking the total number of all carrier violations of section 273 of the INA for a fiscal year (normally the fiscal year previous to the year the APL is calculated) and dividing this by the total number of documented nonimmigrants (as described in paragraph 4.5 above) transported by all carriers for that same fiscal year and multiplying the result by 1,000. CBP will then evaluate the result of that calculation and either adopt it or adjust it to achieve what it deems to be the optimum measure that encourages carriers to improve their screening operations with a reasonably challenging and reasonably attainable performance target. 4.7 CBP shall establish a Second Acceptable Performance Level (APL2), based on statistical analysis of the performance of all carriers operating at or better than the APL, as a means of further evaluating carrier success in screening its passengers in accordance with 8 CFR 273.3 and this MOU. Using carrier statistics for only those carriers which are at or better than the APL, the APL2 shall be determined by taking the total number of these carrier violations of section 273 of the INA for a fiscal year (normally the fiscal year previous to the year the APL2 is calculated) and dividing by the total number of documented nonimmigrants (as described in paragraph 4.5 above) transported by these carriers for that same year and multiplying the result by 1,000. CBP will then evaluate the result of that calculation and either adopt it or adjust it to achieve what it deems to be the optimum measure that encourages carriers to improve their screening operations with a reasonably challenging and reasonably attainable performance target. 4.8 The PL, APL, and APL2 may be recalculated periodically (including yearly) as deemed necessary by CBP, based on Carrier performance during the previous period(s). 4.9 The Director, FP&F Division, will review the signed MOU submitted by any carrier seeking to participate in the automatic fines reduction process under this MOU regardless of whether that carrier’s PL meets or exceeds the APL at the time of submission. The Director will consider evidence submitted by the carrier that demonstrates that the carrier has taken extensive measures to prevent the transport of improperly documented passengers to the United States. This evidence may include, but is not limited to, the following: (1) Information regarding the Carrier’s training program, including participation of the Carrier’s personnel in any CBP, DOS, or other training programs and the number of employees trained; (2) evidence that the carrier operates efficient and effective boarding gate checks to deter boarding pass swaps and to verify that all passengers’ documents, including transit passengers, have been examined; (3) information regarding the date and number of improperly documented aliens intercepted by the Carrier at the port(s) of embarkation, including, but not limited to, the aliens’ name, date of birth, passport nationality, passport number or other travel document information, and reason boarding was PO 00000 Frm 00061 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 7621 refused, if otherwise permitted under local law; and (4) other evidence, including screening procedure enhancements, technological or otherwise, to demonstrate the Carrier’s good faith efforts to properly screen passengers destined to the United States. If the Director is satisfied with the carrier’s evidence, and is otherwise satisfied that the carrier is capable of meeting the terms and conditions contained in this MOU, CBP will accept the carrier’s signed MOU, such acceptance evidenced by the Director’s signature (section 4.10). 4.10 CBP will commence applying the APL and APL2 set forth in this MOU (sections 4.6 and 4.7) on April 23, 2010 regardless of the date the MOU is accepted by CBP. All other terms of the MOU, including automatic processing of fines reduction, take effect on the date CBP accepts the MOU. Acceptance occurs upon the signature of the Director, FP&F Division. 4.11 Carriers whose PL is at or better than the APL are eligible to receive an automatic 25 percent reduction, if signatory to and in compliance with this MOU, on fines imposed under section 273 of the INA for periods determined by CBP. 4.12 Carriers whose PL is at or better than the APL2 are eligible to receive an automatic 50 percent reduction, if signatory to and in compliance with this MOU, on fines imposed under section 273 of the INA for periods determined by CBP. 4.13 Carriers whose PL is below the APL are eligible to receive an automatic 25 percent reduction, if signatory to and in compliance with this MOU, on fines imposed under section 273 of the INA for periods determined by CBP, provided that CBP may terminate the MOU if it deems that the carrier’s performance below the APL is not justified in the circumstances or that violations of section 273 of the INA are excessive. 4.14 The Carrier may defend against imposition of, or seek a waiver or further reduction of, an administrative fine if the case is timely defended pursuant to 8 CFR part 280, in response to the Form I–79, Notice of Intent to Fine, and the Carrier establishes that further mitigating or extenuating circumstances existed at the time of the violation that warrant the relief sought.

These species are not native to the environment in which they are now found. Nonindigenous species can and do have negative impacts on our natives species. Early detection is a major focus of the Bureau. The public can help us with this task by serving as the ‘‘eyes and ears’’ for our Program because the USGS cannot possibly be everywhere, observing and monitoring all open waters for nonindigenous aquatic species. The USGS does not actively solicit this information; a form is posted on our Web site to be completed with biologic, geographic and sender information. It is completely voluntary and sent to us only when the public has encountered a nonindigenous aquatic organism, usually through fishing or some other outdoor recreational activity and they chose to let us know.
