L. 97–446, 19 U.S.C. 2601 et seq.), the United States made a bilateral agreement with Greece, which entered into force on November 21, 2011, concerning the imposition of import restrictions on archaeological materials representing Greece’s cultural heritage from the Upper Paleolithic (beginning approximately 20,000 B.C.) through the 15th century A.D., and ecclesiastical ethnological material representing Greece’s Byzantine culture (approximately the 4th century through the 15th century A.D.). On December 1, 2011, CBP published CBP Dec. 11–25 in the Federal Register (76 FR 74691), which amended 19 CFR 12.104g(a) to indicate the imposition of these restrictions and included a list designating the types of archaeological and ecclesiastical ethnological material covered by the restrictions. Import restrictions listed in 19 CFR 12.104g(a) are effective for no more than five years beginning on the date on which the agreement enters into force with respect to the United States. This period can be extended for additional periods not to exceed five years if it is determined that the factors which justified the initial agreement still pertain and no cause for suspension of the agreement exists (19 CFR 12.104g(a)). On February 5, 2016, the Department of State received a request by the Government of the Hellenic Republic to extend the Agreement. Subsequently, the Department of State proposed to extend the Agreement.

Combination meal means a standard menu item that consists of more than one food item, for example a meal that includes a sandwich, a side dish, and a drink. A combination meal may be represented on the menu or menu board in narrative form, numerically, or pictorially.

Covered establishment means a restaurant or similar retail food establishment that is a part of a chain with 20 or more locations doing business under the same name (regardless of the type of ownership, e.g., individual franchises) and offering for sale substantially the same menu items, as well as a restaurant or similar retail food establishment that is registered to be covered under paragraph (d) of this section.

ACTION: Final rule.

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

SUMMARY: This document amends the U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) regulations to reflect the extension of import restrictions on

The Assistant Secretary for Educational and Cultural Affairs, United 
States Department of State, has determined that factors continue to 
warrant the imposition of import restrictions and no cause for 
suspension exists. Accordingly, these import restrictions will remain 
in effect for an additional five years, and the CBP regulations are 
being amended to reflect this extension until November 21, 2021. These 
restrictions are being extended pursuant to determinations of the 
United States Department of State made under the terms of the 
Convention on Cultural Property Implementation Act that implemented the

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    Pursuant to the provisions of the 1970 United Nations Educational, 
Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Convention, implemented 
by the Convention on Cultural Property Implementation Act (Pub. L. 97-
446, 19 U.S.C. 2601 et seq.), the United States made a bilateral 
agreement with Greece, which entered into force on November 21, 2011, 
concerning the imposition of import restrictions on archaeological 
materials representing Greece's cultural heritage from the Upper 
Paleolithic (beginning approximately 20,000 B.C.) through the 15th 
century A.D., and ecclesiastical ethnological material representing 
Greece's Byzantine culture (approximately the 4th century through the 
15th century A.D.). On December 1, 2011, CBP published CBP Dec. 11-25 
in the Federal Register (76 FR 74691), which amended 19 CFR 12.104g(a) 
to indicate the imposition of these restrictions and included a list 
designating the types of archaeological and ecclesiastical ethnological 
material covered by the restrictions.
    Import restrictions listed in 19 CFR 12.104g(a) are effective for 
no more than five years beginning on the date on which the agreement 
enters into force with respect to the United States. This period can be 
extended for additional periods not to exceed five years if it is 
determined that the factors which justified the initial agreement still 
pertain and no cause for suspension of the agreement exists (19 CFR 
12.104g(a)).
    On February 5, 2016, the Department of State received a request by 
the Government of the Hellenic Republic to extend the Agreement. 
Subsequently, the Department of State proposed to extend the Agreement. 
After considering the views and recommendation of the Cultural Property 
Advisory Committee, the Assistant Secretary for Educational and 
Cultural Affairs, United States Department of State, determined that 
the cultural heritage of Greece continues to be in jeopardy from 
pillage of archaeological materials representing Greece's cultural 
heritage from the Upper Paleolithic (beginning approximately 20,000 
B.C.) through the 15th century A.D., and ecclesiastical

[[Page 84459]]

ethnological material representing Greece's Byzantine culture 
(approximately the 4th century through the 15th century A.D.); and made 
the necessary determinations to extend the import restrictions for an 
additional five years. Diplomatic notes have been exchanged, reflecting 
the extension of those restrictions for an additional five-year period. 
Accordingly, CBP is amending 19 CFR 12.104g(a) to reflect this 
extension of the import restrictions.
    The Designated List archaeological materials representing Greece's 
cultural heritage from the Upper Paleolithic (beginning approximately 
20,000 B.C.) through the 15th century A.D., and ecclesiastical 
ethnological material representing Greece's Byzantine culture 
(approximately the 4th century through the 15th century A.D.) covered 
by these import restrictions is set forth in CBP Dec. 11-25. The 
Agreement and Designated List may also be found at the following 
Internet Web site address: https://eca.state.gov/cultural-heritage-center/cultural-property-protection/bilateral-agreements/greece.
    The restrictions on the importation of these archaeological and 
ecclesiastical ethnological materials from Greece are to continue in 
effect for an additional five years. Importation of such material 
continues to be restricted unless the conditions set forth in 19 U.S.C. 
2606 and 19 CFR 12.104c are met.

Inapplicability of Notice and Delayed Effective Date

    This amendment involves a foreign affairs function of the United 
States and is, therefore, being made without notice or public procedure 
(5 U.S.C. 553(a)(1)). In addition, CBP has determined that such notice 
or public procedure would be impracticable and contrary to the public 
interest because the action being taken is essential to avoid 
interruption of the application of the existing import restrictions (5 
U.S.C. 553(b)(B)). For the same reasons, a delayed effective date is 
not required under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3).

Regulatory Flexibility Act

    Because no notice of proposed rulemaking is required, the 
provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) do 
not apply.

Executive Order 12866

    It has been determined that this rule is not a significant 
regulatory action under Executive Order 12866.

Signing Authority

    This regulation is being issued in accordance with 19 CFR 
0.1(a)(1).

List of Subjects in 19 CFR Part 12

    Cultural property, Customs duties and inspection, Imports, 
Prohibited merchandise.

Amendment to CBP Regulations

    For the reasons set forth above, part 12 of title 19 of the Code of 
Federal Regulations (19 CFR part 12), is amended as set forth below:
