Download as PDF asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 108 / Friday, June 5, 2015 / Notices communication between NMFS and entry filers regarding imports and, for eligible entries, will allow test participants to submit the required data once rather than submitting data separately to CBP and NMFS, resulting in quicker processing. During this test, participants will collaborate with CBP and NMFS to examine the effectiveness of the ‘‘single window’’ capability. NMFS programmatic requirements are separated into three different programs: the Highly Migratory Species (HMS) Program which includes various tunas and swordfish, the Antarctic Marine Living Resources (AMLR) program which covers fresh and frozen toothfish (Dissostichus species), and the NOAA Tuna Tracking and Verification Program (NOAA Form 370) which covers a variety of canned, frozen, pouched and other processed tuna but not fresh tuna. Under this test, NMFS required data will be transmitted electronically through ACE utilizing the PGA Message Set and DIS for any merchandise or combination thereof covered by any of these programs. For approved participants, the pilot test may include all modes of transport at the selected port(s), and all commodities regulated under the three NMFS import monitoring programs when imported at one of the selected ports. The import filing process for the NMFS will require the submission of specifically designated data/ information. Both the designated Partner Government Agency (PGA) Message Set and the Document Imaging System (DIS) will be utilized to collect the specified information that is required by NMFS. The PGA Message Set data will be submitted to the CBP Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) system through the use of ABI at the time of the filing in addition to the CBP required import Entry or Entry Summary data. Scanned copies of specific documents required will be submitted at the time of filing to the CBP DIS, either through uploading the file copies to the ABI system or by sending them to the DIS as email attachments. Examples of the kind of data that will be submitted as part of the PGA Message set are; the importer’s permit number, a code for the ocean area of the harvest, a code for the type of gear used to harvest the fish or the code providing the country of registry for the fishing vessel that harvested the product. Examples of the types of scanned images that will be submitted to the DIS are; the international statistical documents pertaining to the harvest, reexport documents for product imported and re-exported from another country VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:31 Jun 04, 2015 Jkt 235001 before shipment to the United States, or other specific and required catch/ harvest documentation pertaining to the product being imported. For information regarding merchandise regulated by NMFS and data, information, forms and documents required by NMFS, see the implementation guidelines for the NMFS at: http://www.cbp.gov/sites/ default/files/documents/ NMFS%20PGA%20 Message%20Set%20Guidlines.pdf. V. Test Participation Criteria and Participation Procedure Any party seeking to participate in this test must provide CBP, in their request to participate, their filer code and the port(s) at which they are interested in filing the appropriate PGA Message Set and DIS information. Requests to participate in this test will be accepted throughout the duration of the test. To be eligible to apply for this pilot, the applicant must be a self-filing importer who has the ability to file ACE Entry Summaries certified for cargo release and ACE cargo release or a broker who has the ability to file ACE Entry Summaries certified for cargo release and ACE cargo release; and the applicant files entries for NMFS commodities that are the subject of this test. All PGA Message Set participants are required to use a software program that has completed ACE certification testing for the PGA Message Set. At this time, PGA Message Set data and DIS submissions may be submitted only for ‘‘01’’, and ‘‘11’’ type entries filed at certain ports. CBP plans on expanding to include Type ‘‘02’’ entries in the near future. Test participants should contact their client representative regarding the expansion to additional entry types (See ADDRESSES). A current listing of the participating ports and the date each port becomes operational for the test may be found on the designated Web site (See DATES). VI. Anticipated Process Changes The current paper process for the NMFS–NOAA 370 Program, Highly Migratory Species (HMS) Program and the Antarctic Marine Living Resources (AMLR) Program will be replaced by a the submittal of data and scanned document images through a combination of the PGA Message Set and DIS. This test covers communication and coordination among the agencies and the filers for the importation of these fisheries products. The agencies will also be testing new operational processes in real time with actual ACE filings in the production environment that include test messages PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 32095 of errors in filing and release status updates to the port and to the filer. Entry data submissions will be subject to validation edits and any applicable PGA business rules programmed into ACE. Once entry data has cleared the initial stage of validation edits and PGA business rules, the filer will receive messages, automatically generated or manually initiated by NMFS, thus keeping the filer informed as to the status of the shipment from the time of entry data submission until the time of release. Once all of the PGAs have concluded their review of the shipment and have unset any remaining holds, CBP will send a one U.S. Government release message to the filer to indicate that the filer has fulfilled all U.S. Government filing requirements for the shipment. VII. Confidentiality All data submitted and entered into ACE is subject to the Trade Secrets Act (18 U.S.C. 1905) and is considered confidential, except to the extent as otherwise provided by law. As stated in previous notices, participation in this or any of the previous ACE tests is not confidential and upon a written Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, a name(s) of an approved participant(s) will be disclosed by CBP in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In December 2014, the National Marine 
Fisheries Service (NMFS) published in the Federal Register a final 
regulation governing the technical requirements for, and NMFS' approval 
of VMS units used in U.S. federal fisheries (79 FR 77399 (Dec. 24, 
2014); 50 CFR part 600, subpart Q). One of the requirements set out in 
the regulation is a type-approval renewal process. Under the type-
approval renewal process, VMS vendors are required to apply for a 
renewal of their type-approved EMTUs/services every three years. CLS 
America, Inc. and SkyMate Inc. did not submit completed applications 
for type-approval renewal for some or all of their type-approved EMTUs/
services. As a result, the following EMTU/communication-services did 
not receive renewal, and are therefore no longer approved for 
compliance with VMS requirements in United States federal fisheries, 
after September 30, 2015:

 
Skymate..............................  Stellar ST2500G (with messaging
                                        terminal).
