Title: Alternate Method—Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) and Partner Government Agency Message Set for Imports Regulated by the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau. OMB Number: 1513—NEW. Abstract: TTB administers several provisions of the U.S. Code that relate to the importation of alcohol beverages, industrial spirits, tobacco products, processed tobacco, and cigarette papers and tubes. The International Trade Data System (ITDS) is an interagency program to establish a single electronic access point through which importers and exporters may submit the data required by Federal government agencies for importation and exportation. The Security and Accountability for Every Port Act (SAFE Port Act) (Pub. L. 109–347) of 2006 mandated participation in ITDS for all agencies that require documentation for clearing or licensing the importation and exportation of cargo. The Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) provides a ‘‘single window’’ that allows importers and exporters to enter one set of data for each shipment of imported or exported goods. The TTB Partner Government Agency (PGA) Message Set defines the TTB-specific information that importers may submit electronically through ACE to meet TTB requirements. With regard to imports, TTB intends to issue an alternate method to allow importers to submit the TTB PGA Message Set electronically, in lieu of submitting paper documents to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) at importation. This information collection covers the data that would be submitted electronically through ACE under that alternate method. Most of the information that the alternate method will require importers to submit through ACE is already required by TTB’s regulations. However, there are some additional requirements. For example, importers who are required to have a TTB permit number will submit their TTB permit number when filing electronically in ACE. In general, importers of TTB-regulated commodities are required to obtain a permit from TTB, but they have not previously been required by regulation to file that number with CBP. The information collected under this information collection appears in the VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:05 May 12, 2016 Jkt 238001 ‘‘ACE Filing Instructions for TTBRegulated Commodities’’ available at www.cbp.gov. Current Actions: We are submitting this new information collection for OMB approval. Type of Review: Approval of a new collection. Affected Public: Businesses and other for-profits.
