Title: Entry Summary. OMB Number: 1651–0022. Form Number: CBP Form 7501 Abstract: CBP Form 7501, Entry Summary, is used to identify merchandise entering the commerce of the United States, and to document the amount of duty and/or tax paid. CBP Form 7501 is submitted by the importer, or the importer’s agent, for each import transaction. The data on this form is used by CBP as a record of the import transaction; to collect the proper duty, taxes, certifications and enforcement information; and to provide data to the U.S. Census Bureau for statistical purposes. Collection of the data on this form is authorized by 19 U.S.C. 1484 and provided for by 19 CFR 142.11 and CFR 141.61. CBP Form 7501 and accompanying instructions can be found at http://www.cbp.gov/xp/cgov/toolbox/ forms/. CBP also proposes to establish a new form called the Document/Payment Transmittal. This form can be used by the trade community to submit additional documentation associated with an ACE entry summary when it involves information that cannot be submitted electronically such as check payments and commercial invoices. Current Actions: CBP proposes to extend the expiration date of this information collection with a change to the burden hours as a result updated estimates by CBP regarding response times and numbers of entry summaries filed.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background A draft Programmatic Environmental Assessment (PEA) for the deployment and operation of Low Energy X-Ray Inspection Systems (LEXRIS) at CBP operational areas has been completed by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), Office of Information and Technology, Laboratories and Scientific Services, Interdiction Technology Branch. The draft PEA is available for public comment. The purpose of deploying and operating LEXRIS is to non-intrusively scan vehicles for the presence of contraband, including weapons of mass destruction, explosives, and illicit drugs. Use of LEXRIS at U.S. ports of entry, for example, directly supports CBP’s mission of securing the U.S. borders and homeland from terrorists and other threats while simultaneously facilitating legitimate trade and travel by assisting CBP personnel in preventing contraband, including illegal drugs and terrorist weapons, from entering the United States. Two different LEXRIS models are available. One system is mobile, mounted on a truck or van type platform and will be used at CBP operational areas. The system can be driven along side a parked vehicle and will scan the vehicle as it drives by. The driver and passenger(s) will exit the vehicle to be scanned and be escorted outside the controlled area before the vehicle is scanned. The other system is a stationary, portal configuration that will be installed along an existing traffic lane. Vehicles will be scanned as they are driven through the portal. Occupants of the vehicle will have the option of remaining in the vehicle while the driver drives it through the portal or exiting the vehicle and having CBP personnel drive it through the portal. Examples of CBP operational areas include, but are not limited to, ports of entry, CBP checkpoints, and locations of events designated as national special security events. LEXRIS is needed to fill a unique capability to detect objects that are not effectively visualized by other nonintrusive inspection technologies currently used by CBP. LEXRIS gives a clear image of objects in the vehicle, including objects that may be hidden in fenders, tires, trunks, gas tanks, and under hoods. LEXRIS provides CBP personnel with information about what may be encountered during a manual search and, in some cases, will E:\FR\FM\18JAN1.SGM 18JAN1
