AGENCY: This document corrects a proposed regulation in a notice of proposed rulemaking published in the Federal Register of August 2, 2018, regarding Modernized Drawback. Specifically, CBP inadvertently proposed in 19 CFR 190.32(d)(2) an exemption for drawback claims for wine which included an imprecise reference to the entirety of paragraph (b). The reference should have been only to paragraphs (b)(1) and (b)(2), the specific paragraphs regarding the ‘‘lesser of’’ rule. As is evident from the entirety of the proposed rule, paragraph (b)(3), which implements the statutory prohibition on double drawback, applies to all drawback claims for wine. This technical correction remedies a clerical error that occurred when the language of paragraph (b)(3) was moved from a different part of the proposed regulations. 1. On page 37936 in the first column, correct § 190.32 by revising paragraph (d)(2) to read as follows: § 190.32 Substitution unused merchandise drawback. * * * * * (d) * * * (2) Allowable refund. For any drawback claim for wine (as defined in § 190.2) based on subsection (j)(2), the total amount of drawback allowable will be equal to 99 percent of the duties, taxes, and fees paid with respect to the imported merchandise, without regard to the limitations in paragraph (b)(1) or (b)(2).

Modernized Drawback; Correction

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

ACTION: Notice of proposed rulemaking; correction.

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

SUMMARY: This document corrects a proposed regulation in a notice of 
proposed rulemaking published in the Federal Register of August 2, 
2018, regarding Modernized Drawback. Specifically, CBP inadvertently 
proposed in 19 CFR 190.32(d)(2) an exemption for drawback claims for 
wine which included an imprecise reference to the entirety of paragraph 
(b). The reference should have been only to paragraphs (b)(1) and 
(b)(2), the specific paragraphs regarding the ``lesser of'' rule. As is 
evident from the entirety of the proposed rule, paragraph (b)(3), which 
implements the statutory prohibition on double drawback, applies to all 
drawback claims for wine. This technical correction remedies a clerical 
error that occurred when the language of paragraph (b)(3) was moved 
from a different part of the proposed regulations.

DATES: August 20, 2018.
