However, NPA IFP cancellation activities have been coordinated with the FAA office responsible for the VOR MON implementation program, and its input has been thoroughly considered. asabaliauskas on DSKBBXCHB2PROD with PROPOSALS Proposed Policy All circling procedures will continue to be reviewed through the established IAP periodic review process.1 As part of that review process, the FAA is proposing that each circling procedure would be evaluated against the following questions: —Is this the only IAP at the airport? —Is this procedure a designated MON airport procedure? —If multiple IAPs serve a single runway end, is this the lowest circling minima for that runway? Note: If the RNAV circling minima is not the lowest, but is within 50’ of the lowest, the FAA would give the RNAV preference. —Would cancellation result in removal of circling minima from all conventional NAVAID procedures at an airport? Note: If circling minima exists for multiple Conventional NAVAID procedures, preference would be to retain ILS circling minima. —Would cancellation result in all circling minima being removed from all airports within 20 NMs? —Will removal eliminate lowest landing minima to an individual runway? The following questions are applicable only to circling-only procedures: —Does this circling-only procedure exist because of high terrain or an obstacle that makes a straight-in procedure unfeasible or which would result in the straight-in minimums being higher than the circling minima? —Is this circling-only procedure (1) at an airport where not all runway ends have a straight-in IAP, and (2) does it have a Final Approach Course not aligned within 45 degrees of a runway which has a straight-in IAP? Further consideration for cancellation under this policy would be terminated if any of the aforementioned questions are answered in the affirmative. If all questions are answered in the negative, the procedure would be processed as described in the following paragraph. When a candidate has been identified, Aeronautical Information Services would send a notification of procedure 1 Section 2–8 of FAA Order 8260.19 (Flight Procedures and Airspace) sets forth the minimum frequency of review of instrument procedures. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:27 Oct 05, 2017 Jkt 244001 cancellation memorandum and completed checklist to the appropriate Regional Service Area, Operations Support Group.2 The Regional Service Area, Operations Support Group would follow the same notification process used for standard IFP requests.3 Consistent with FAA procedures outlined in the procedure cancellation memorandum, comments regarding the aforementioned circling procedure would need to be submitted within 30 days of the timestamp on the communication media through which it was delivered. Comments would be directed to the Regional Service Area, Operations Support Group for dissemination to Aeronautical Information Services. Comments would be adjudicated by Aeronautical Information Services within 30 days of the timestamp on the communication media through which it was received. A final decision would be forwarded to Regional Service Area, Operations Support Group to disseminate to commenter(s). The cancellation of the part 97 instrument procedure will be published in the Federal Register. Invitation for Comments The FAA invites interested parties to submit written comments, data, or views. The agency also invites comments relating to the economic, environmental, energy, or federalism impacts that might result from implementation of the proposed policy. Comments should explain the reason for modifying or not implementing this proposed policy. To ensure the docket does not contain duplicate comments, commenters should send only one copy of written comments or, if comments are filed electronically, commenters should submit only one time. The FAA will consider all comments it receives on or before the closing date for comments before acting on proposed policy. The FAA will consider comments submitted after the comment period has closed if it is possible to do so without incurring expense or delay. The agency may change this proposal in light of the comments it receives. 2 The FAA has placed sample copies of the memorandum and checklist into the docket for this notice. 3 FAA Order 8260.43 (Flight Procedures Management Program) and FAA Order 8260.26 (Establishing Submission Cutoff Dates for Civil Instrument Procedures) contain additional information on this process.

AGENCY: The Bureau of the Census (U.S. Census Bureau) is seeking public comments to perform a review of the requirements governing routed export transactions. In particular, the Census Bureau is interested in comments regarding the definition of a routed export transaction as well as the responsibilities of parties in routed export transactions. Routed export transactions are transactions in which the Foreign Principal Party in Interest (FPPI) controls the movement of the goods out of the country.

Foreign Trade Regulations (FTR): Request for Public Comments 
Regarding Standard and Routed Export Transactions

AGENCY: Bureau of the Census, Commerce Department.

ACTION: Advance notice of proposed rulemaking.

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

SUMMARY: The Bureau of the Census (U.S. Census Bureau) is seeking 
public comments to perform a review of the requirements governing 
routed export transactions. In particular, the Census Bureau is 
interested in comments regarding the definition of a routed export 
transaction as well as the responsibilities of parties in routed export 
transactions. Routed export transactions are transactions in which the 
Foreign Principal Party in Interest (FPPI) controls the movement of the 
goods out of the country. There are a variety of reasons why the FPPI 
assumes this responsibility such as the use of a preferred carrier and 
the desire to not disclose the ultimate consignee to the U.S. Principal 
Party in Interest (USPPI), although the ultimate consignee is properly 
identified to the U.S. Government. Because the FPPI controls the 
movement of the goods in a routed transaction and cannot file 
Electronic Export Information (EEI), the Census Bureau requires the 
FPPI to authorize a U.S. authorized agent or the USPPI to file the EEI 
on its behalf. This ensures that the Census Bureau collects the 
statistical information.

DATES: Written comments must be received on or before December 5, 2017.

ADDRESSES: Please direct all written comments on this advance notice of 
proposed rulemaking to the Chief, International Trade Management 
Division, U.S. Census Bureau, Room 5K158, Washington, DC 20233-6010.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    The Census Bureau is responsible for collecting, compiling, and 
publishing export trade statistics for the United States under the 
provisions of Title 13, United States Code (U.S.C.), Chapter 9, Section 
301. The Automated Export System (AES), now part of the Automated 
Commercial Environment (ACE), is the primary instrument used for 
collecting export trade data. Through the AES, the Census Bureau 
collects Electronic Export Information (EEI), the electronic equivalent 
of the export data formerly collected on the Shipper's Export 
Declaration (SED), reported pursuant to the Foreign Trade Regulations 
(FTR), Title 15, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), part 30. The EEI 
consists of data elements as set forth in 15 CFR 30.6 for an export 
shipment, and includes information such as the U.S. Principal Party in 
Interest's (USPPI's) name, address, and identification number, and 
detailed information concerning the exported product. The party 
responsible for the accuracy and timeliness of EEI data elements varies 
depending upon the type of export transaction; standard or routed. 
Through this notice, the Census Bureau is seeking public comments to 
perform a review of the requirements governing routed export 
transactions, a subset of export transactions, as detailed in the FTR, 
15 CFR, part 30.

Request for Comments

    The Census Bureau is soliciting comments on the clarity, usability, 
and any other matters related to the regulatory requirements for routed 
transactions. This will include the definition of a routed export 
transaction found in 15 CFR 30.1 as well as the general 
responsibilities of parties in routed export transactions as detailed 
in 15 CFR 30.3. Suggested questions are below; however, any pertinent 
feedback not captured by these questions is also welcome:
    1. If you do not think that the definition of a routed export 
transaction in 15 CFR 30.1 is clearly stated, then what definition of 
routed export transaction would you suggest?
    2. Should the Census Bureau modify the list of data elements at 15 
CFR 30.3(e)(2) that the U.S. authorized agent is required to provide 
when filing the electronic export information? If so, what changes 
would you suggest?
    3. Should the Census Bureau modify the list of data elements at 15 
CFR 30.3(e)(1) that the U.S. Principal Party in Interest is required to 
provide to the U.S. Authorized agent? If so, what changes would you 
suggest?
    4. The carrier's responsibilities under the FTR are the same in 
both standard and routed transactions. Does the FTR clearly communicate 
these responsibilities? If not, what clarification would you suggest?
    5. The data elements that the USPPI and U.S authorized agent are 
required to provide are currently located in Section 30.3(e) of the 
FTR. However, additional data elements are needed to complete the AES 
filing. Below is a list of data elements that are required to be 
reported but for which a responsible party is not listed. Please 
provide comments on which party, the USPPI or the U.S. authorized 
agent, should report these data elements.
