Correction

AGENCY: U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Department of Homeland 
Security.

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This document amends the U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) regulations to reflect that the mail room servicing the Director, 
National Commodity Specialist Division, Regulations and Rulings, in the 
Office of Trade, has relocated within New York, and a new location has 
been established to receive non-electronic correspondence. E-rulings 
procedures will remain the same and are not affected by the change in 
office location.

DATES: Final rule effective October 28, 2016.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Steven Mack, Director, National 
Commodity Specialist Division, Regulations and Rulings, Office of 
Trade, (646) 733-3001.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On January 14, 2016, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) published 
a notice in the Federal Register (81 FR 1960), announcing a temporary 
change of office location effective January 28, 2016, due to the 
relocation of the National Commodity Specialist Division (NCSD). In 
that notice, CBP stated that it would update its regulation once the 
relocation of the NCSD is complete. The relocation is now completed and 
a permanent address is established. As such, CBP is revising section 
177.2(a) of title 19 of the Code of Federal Regulations (19 CFR 
177.2(a)) to reflect the new mailing address. Starting October 28, 
2016, all non-electronic correspondence to the NCSD should be sent to 
the following address: Director, National Commodity Specialist 
Division, Regulations and Rulings, Office of Trade, 201 Varick Street, 
Suite 501, New York, New York 10014. E-rulings procedures will remain 
the same and are not affected by the change in office location.

Inapplicability of Notice and Delayed Effective Date Requirements

    Because the technical correction set forth in this document merely 
updates a mailing address, CBP finds that good cause exists for 
dispensing with notice and public procedure as unnecessary under 5 
U.S.C. 553(b)(A). For this same reason, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3), 
CBP finds that good cause exists for dispensing with the requirement 
for a delayed effective date.

Executive Order 12866

    The amendment does not meet the criteria for a ``significant 
regulatory action'' as specified in Executive Order 12866.

Regulatory Flexibility Act

    Because this document is not subject to the notice and public 
procedure requirements of 5 U.S.C. 553, it is not subject to the 
provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.).

Signing Authority

    This document is limited to a technical correction of the CBP 
regulations. Accordingly, it is being signed under the authority of 19 
CFR 0.1(b)(1).

List of Subjects in 19 CFR Part 177

    Administrative practice and procedure, Customs duties and 
inspection, Government procurement, Reporting and recordkeeping 
requirements.

Amendments to the Regulations

    For the reasons set forth above, part 177 of the CBP Regulations 
(19 CFR part 177) is amended as set forth below.
