The information on these forms may also be filed electronically at: https:// dtops.cbp.dhs.gov/. This collection of information is provided for by 19 CFR 24.22. In addition, CBP requires express consignment courier facilities (ECCFs) to file lists of couriers using the facility in accordance with 19 CFR 128.11. In cases of overpayments, carriers using the courier facilities may send a request to CBP for a refund in accordance with 19 CFR 24.23(b). This request must specify the grounds for the refund. ECCFs are also required to file a quarterly report in accordance with 19 CFR 24.23(b)(4). Current Actions: This submission is being made to extend the expiration date with a change to the burden hours as a result of a new pilot that CBP is planning that will allow for a new payment option for commercial truck single-crossing user fees. This new pilot program will allow commercial truck carriers who opt for the single-crossing user fee to prepay the single-crossing user fee online via the DTOPS Web site prior to arrival at a port of entry. As a result, the estimated number of users for the DTOPS Web site (Form 339C— Vehicles) was increased from 50,000 to 90,000. Type of Review: Extension (with change). Affected Public: Carriers.

Abstract: Item 9803.00.50 under the Harmonized Tariff Schedules of the United States (HTSUS), codified as 19 U.S.C. 1202, 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. 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.

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 9803.00.50 HTSUS is claimed, the owner must place 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.
