The comments that are submitted will be summarized and included in the CBP request for Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval. All comments will become a matter of public record. In this document CBP is soliciting comments concerning the following information collection: Title: Entry and Immediate Delivery Application and Simplified Entry. OMB Number: 1651–0024. Form Numbers: CBP Form 3461 and Form 3461 ALT. Abstract: All items imported into the United States are subject to examination before entering the commerce of the United States. There are two procedures available to effect the release of imported merchandise, including ‘‘entry’’ pursuant to 19 U.S.C. 1484, and ‘‘immediate delivery’’ pursuant to 19 U.S.C. 1448(b). Under both procedures, CBP Forms 3461 and 3461 ALT are the source documents in the packages presented to Customs and Border Protection (CBP). The information collected on CBP Forms 3461 and 3461 ALT allow CBP officers to verify that the information regarding the consignee and shipment is correct and that a bond is on file with CBP. CBP also uses these forms to close out the manifest and to establish the obligation to pay estimated duties in the time period prescribed by law or regulation. CBP Form 3461 is also a delivery authorization document and is given to the importing carrier to authorize the release of the merchandise. CBP Forms 3461 and 3461 ALT are provided for by 19 CFR 141 and 142. These forms and instructions are accessible at: http://www.cbp.gov/xp/ cgov/toolbox/forms/. Simplified Entry is a program for ACE entry summary filers in which importers or brokers may file Simplified Entry data in lieu of filing the CBP Form 3461. This data consists of 12 required elements: importer of record; buyer name and address; buyer employer identification number (consignee number), seller name and address; manufacturer/supplier name and E:\FR\FM\11FEN1.SGM 11FEN1 9720 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 28 / Monday, February 11, 2013 / Notices address; Harmonized Tariff Schedule 10-digit number; country of origin; bill of lading; house air waybill number; bill of lading issuer code; entry number; entry type; and estimated shipment value. Three optional data elements are the container stuffing location; consolidator name and address, and ship to party name and address. The data collected under the Simplified Entry program is intended to reduce transaction costs, expedite cargo release, and enhance cargo security. The Simplified Entry filing minimizes the redundancy of data submitted by the filer to CBP through receiving carrier data from the carrier. This design allows the participants to file earlier in the transportation flow. Guidance on using Simplified Entry may be found at http://www.cbp.gov/xp/cgov/trade/ trade_transformation/simplified_entry/.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: CBP invites the general public and affected Federal agencies to submit written comments and suggestions on proposed and/or continuing information collection requests pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act (Pub.

Title: Holders or Containers which Enter the United States Duty Free. OMB Number: 1651–0035. Form Number: None. Abstract: All articles that are brought into the United States are subject to duty unless they are specifically exempt under the Harmonized Tariff Schedules of the United States (HTSUS), codified as 19 U.S.C. 1202. Item 9801.00.10 (HTSUS) provides that articles that were manufactured in the U.S. and exported and returned without having been advanced in value or improved in condition by any process of manufacture may be brought back into the U.S. duty-free. In addition, Item 9803.00.50 (HTSUS) provides for the duty-free entry of substantial holders or containers of foreign manufacture if duty had been paid upon a previous importation pursuant to the provisions of 19 CFR 10.41b. Although an article may be brought back into the United States without being subject to duty, a consumption entry must nevertheless be made along with the reason for the article not being subject to duty set forth on the entry. However, an importer who brings in merchandise packed in U.S. manufactured containers or holders or previously duty-paid containers or holders, and does so several times a year involving a great many containers or holders, may mark the container or E:\FR\FM\11FEN1.SGM 11FEN1
