Respondents can obtain information on how to make claims under these Free Trade Agreements by going to http://www.cbp.gov/trade/freetrade-agreements. Current Actions: CBP has reevaluated the time necessary to prepare and submit information related to these free trade agreements. Prior to this submission, CBP estimated a time per response of 12 minutes, or 0.2 hours. Based on our recent evaluation, CBP believes that 2 hours per response is a more accurate estimate. This update has increased the estimated burden hours for this ICR from 71,720 annual hours to 717,200 annual hours. In addition to reevaluating the burden hours associated with this ICR, CBP has also added the Dominican RepublicCentral American-United States Free Trade Agreement (CAFTA–DR) to this ICR because it has the same information collection requirements as the other FTA’s. Previously, CAFTA–DR was reported under OMB Control Number 1651–0125. Combining collection 1651– 0125 with this ICR adds 4,800 annual burden hours to this submission. There is no new information required or substantive changes related to Free Trade Agreements. Type of Review: Extension (with change). Affected Public: Businesses. Estimated Number of Respondents: 359,400. Estimated Number of Total Annual Responses: 361,000. Estimated Time per Response: 2 hours. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 722,000.
