Notice of Proposed Information Collection for Public Comment; Public Housing Operating Subsidy-Appeals, 65009-65010 [2012-26227]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 206 / Wednesday, October 24, 2012 / Notices Currently, three possible filing options have been identified: • Air Carrier Dual Filing—The air carrier transmits the ACAS data prior to loading and performs any required TSA screening. The air carrier must subsequently transmit the advance electronic cargo information as required by 19 CFR 122.48a. • Progressive Filing—The party electing to file the ACAS data transmits the House Air Waybill (AWB) ACAS data, in addition to the associated master air waybill number, directly to CBP as early as possible in the supply chain. The air carrier may also opt to send house, master, or simple bill data messages for the same shipment. The response message from CBP would reflect the current status of the shipment. The air carrier can also send ACAS data for the same shipment. If any requisite TSA screening is not or cannot be conducted by the freight forwarder, it is expected that the air carrier will perform the required TSA screening. The air carrier must subsequently transmit the advance electronic cargo information as required by 19 CFR 122.48a. • Single Filing—The air carrier or eligible participant transmits all of the advance electronic cargo information as required by 19 CFR 122.48a prior to loading the cargo, and performs any required TSA screening. This transmission prior to loading will be used by CBP as the submission of both the ACAS data and the advance electronic cargo information required by 19 CFR 122.48a. wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with Costs to ACAS Pilot Participants ACAS pilot participants are responsible for all costs incurred as a result of their participation in the pilot and such costs will vary, depending on their pre-existing infrastructures. Costs may include carrier communication requirements, such as submission and receipt of data, and the cost of implementing the necessary screening protocols. Benefits to ACAS Pilot Participants While the benefits to ACAS pilot participants will vary, several advantages of joining may include: • Increases in security by leveraging DHS threat and other data to employ a risk-based approach to improve air cargo security through targeted screening; • Gains in efficiencies by automating the identification of high risk cargo for enhanced screening before it is consolidated and loaded on aircraft; • Establishment of mitigation protocols for high-risk shipments; VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:21 Oct 23, 2012 Jkt 229001 • The ability to provide input into CBP and TSA efforts to establish, test, and refine the interface between government and industry communication systems for the implementation of ACAS; • Ensuring a variety of business models are considered in the development and implementation of ACAS; • Facilitation of corporate preparedness for future mandatory implementation of ACAS submission requirements; and • Reduction in paper processes related to cargo screening requirements which may increase carrier efficiency. Regulatory and Statutory Requirements Participation in the ACAS pilot does not alter the participant’s obligations to comply with applicable statutory and regulatory requirements, including 19 CFR 122.48a, and participants will still be subject to applicable penalties for non-compliance. In addition, submission of data under the ACAS pilot does not exempt the participant from TSA security program requirements or any statutory sanctions in the event a controlled substance or other prohibited article is introduced into the United States on a conveyance owned and/or operated by the participant. Duration and Evaluation of the ACAS Pilot The ACAS pilot will run for six months from October 24, 2012. While the pilot is ongoing, the results will be evaluated and a determination will be made as to whether the pilot will be extended. If the pilot is extended, CBP will publish another notice in the Federal Register. When sufficient pilot analysis and evaluation has been conducted, CBP intends to begin rulemaking to require the submission of ACAS data before the cargo is loaded onto the aircraft for all international shipments either destined for or transiting through the United States. The results of the ACAS pilot will help determine the relevant data elements, the time frame within which data should be submitted to permit CBP to effectively target, identify and mitigate any risk with the least impact practicable on trade operations, and any other related procedures and policies.
