Agency Information Collection Activities; Revision of a Currently Approved Collection: Application by Refugee for Waiver of Inadmissibility Grounds, 47932-47933 [2018-20541]

Download as PDF 47932 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 184 / Friday, September 21, 2018 / Notices daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES program submit a complete application package to CBP. CBP then reviews the application and begins the vetting process including a risk assessment and a determination of the applicant’s readiness to assume the responsibilities of ISA. When the Broker ISA PC test was in operation, importers interested in applying to participate in the ISA program had the option of using either the Broker ISA PC services (most likely for a fee) of an ISA pre-certifier to facilitate participation in the ISA program or the importers could continue to apply for participation in the ISA program without the services of a pre-certifier. Under the Broker ISA PC test, an interested importer who wished to use the services of a pre-certifier submitted a complete ISA application package to both CBP and the ISA precertifier whom they selected. If an importer used the services of an ISA pre-certifier, the importer noted this at the time it submitted its ISA application. The key benefit of using the services of an ISA pre-certifier was the facilitation of the ISA application process. In the April 17, 2013 Federal Register notice, CBP anticipated that the use of an ISA pre-certifier would reduce the time period from application to presentation to the ISA Review Board from the average processing time for CBP which is between 9 and 12 months to between 90 and 120 days. Discontinuation of the Broker ISA PC Test CBP announced in the April 17, 2013 Federal Register notice that it would review the effectiveness and feasibility of the Broker ISA PC test one (1) year after the date of the ISA Pre-Certifiers Orientation and that based on the results and lessons learned from the test, CBP would determine if the Broker ISA PC would be fully implemented as a permanent program. While a total of 23 brokers volunteered to participate in the test and 9 brokers were selected to participate in the test per the guidelines of the notice, the test proved unsuccessful as there was little participation from importers. Several importers expressed reservations about securing the services of a broker to conduct the ISA evaluations and indicated that the broker fees were cost prohibitive. Only three (3) importers signed up to be reviewed by the brokers. Because of the low participation rate, CBP has determined that the test and test program are not effective and has decided to terminate the test. As a result, the Broker ISA PC test is discontinued effective immediately and VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:30 Sep 20, 2018 Jkt 244001 the test program will not be implemented as a permanent program. The discontinuation of the test and the publication of this notice will have no effect on the ISA program. Dated: September 18, 2018. Todd C. Owen, Executive Assistant Commissioner, Office of Field Operations.
