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 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 28 / Monday, February 11, 2013 / Notices erowe on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES holder with the HTSUS number in lieu of filing of entry papers each time.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: Pursuant to the provision of the Privacy Act of 1974, HUD is providing notice of its formal adoption of a new system of records for the Office of General Counsel (OGC) E-Discovery Management System (EDMS). The OGC discovery productions typically require the preservation, collection and analysis of massive emails, word processing documents, PDF files, spreadsheets, presentations, database entries, and other documents in a variety of electronic file formats, as well as paper records. EDMS is expected to improve significantly the efficiency of OGC’s processing of records during the discovery and processing of litigation requests and will dramatically reduce the time spent on the document review and production process. DATES: Effective Date: December 18, 2012.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to the Privacy Act of 1974 (5 U.S.C. 552a) (Privacy Act), HUD published in the Federal Register on July 17, 2012, at 77 FR 41997, a notice that announced a new system of records for OGC’s EDiscovery Management System (OGC– EDMS), a system expected to significantly improve the efficiency of OGC’s processing of records during the preservation, discovery, and processing of litigation requests when litigation is ‘‘reasonably anticipated’’ 1 and reduce FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: [FR Doc. 2013–02982 Filed 2–8–13; 8:45 am] 1 ‘‘Reasonably anticipated’’ is the legal test articulating the standard for when the duty to preserve electronically stored information begins.

OGC–EDMS is in response to and consistent with e-discovery preservation and production requirements in the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. The July 17, 2012, notice solicited public comment on OGC–EDMS for a period of 30 days. The notice advised that EDMS would carry a final effective date of August 16, 2012, unless HUD received comments which would result in a contrary determination. HUD received public comment in response to the July 17, 2012, notice. On August 15, 2012, at 77 FR 49011, HUD published a notice advising of a change in the final effective date of OGC–EDMS, the commitment to re-publish the description of OGC–EDMS with certain clarifications, and to respond to public comments received in response to the July 17, 2012, notice. In response to public comments, a notice expanding the description of OGC–EDMS and soliciting further public comments was published on November 15, 2012, at 77 FR 68140. Specifically, HUD clarified in the notice published on November 15, 2012 that when litigation is ‘‘reasonably anticipated,’’ related electronic data is forensically copied and maintained in a secure server environment separate from HUD’s network servers as part of the OGC–EDMS. In this secure server environment, electronic data is preserved in a way that prevents metadata spoliation by the system or the owner of the data. HUD further clarified that electronic data is properly retained on network servers and other sources as mandated by the HUD’s Office of General Counsel Records Disposition Schedule 2—Legal Records, 2225.6 REV–1, CHG–APPENDIX 2 2 and HUD’s Office of the Chief Information Officer Electronic Mail Policy, 2400.1 REV01, CHG.3 These handbooks are available on HUD’s Web pages through hudclips. The public comment period for the November 15, 2012, notice closed on December 17, 2012. HUD received no public comments in response to the November 2012 additional solicitation of comment. In this notice, HUD provides a complete summary of the location, purposes, and operational description of EDMS. The summary is key case is Pension Comm. of the Univ. of Montreal Pension Plan v.

    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

holder with the HTSUS number in lieu of filing of entry papers each 
time. CBP believes such frequent filing of entry papers for these 
containers or holders would be overly burdensome to the importer or 
shipper.
    19 CFR 10.41 provides that substantial holders or containers are to 
have prescribed markings in clear and conspicuous letters of such a 
size that they will be easily discernable. Section 10.41b of the CBP 
regulations eliminates the need for an importer to file entry documents 
by instead requiring the marking of the containers or holders to 
indicate under which item number of the HTSUS the containers or holders 
are entitled duty free entry.
    In order to comply with 19 CFR 10.41b, the owner of the holder or 
container is required to place the markings on a metal tag or plate 
containing the following information: 9801.00.10, HTSUS; the name of 
the owner; and the serial number assigned by the owner. In the case of 
serially numbered holders or containers of foreign manufacture for 
which free clearance under the second provision of item 9803.00.50 
HTSUS is claimed, the owner must place the following markings 
containing the following information: 9803.00.50 HTSUS; the port code 
numbers of the port of entry; the entry number; the last two digits of 
the fiscal year of entry covering the importation of the holders and 
containers on which duty was paid; the name of the owner; and the 
serial number assigned by the owner.
    Action: CBP proposes to extend the expiration date of this 
information collection with no change to the burden hours or to the 
information collected.
