ACTION: Notice. This notice announces the transfer of amounts for certain dairy articles from the historical license category (Appendix 1) to the lottery (nonhistorical) license category (Appendix 2) pursuant to the Dairy Tariff-Rate Quota Import Licensing regulations, 7 CFR part 6, for the 2019 quota year. SUMMARY: DATES: August 8, 2019. Abdelsalam El-Farra, (202) 720–9439; abdelsalam.el-farra@fas.usda.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Foreign Agricultural Service, under a delegation of authority from the Under Secretary for Trade and Foreign Agricultural Affairs, administers the Dairy Tariff-Rate Import Quota Licensing Regulation codified at 7 CFR 6.20–6.36 that provides for the issuance of licenses to import certain dairy articles under tariff-rate quotas (TRQs) as set forth in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) of the United States. These dairy articles may only be entered into the United States at the low-tier tariff by or for the account of a person or firm to whom such licenses have been issued and only in accordance with the terms and conditions of the regulation. Licenses are issued on a calendar year basis, and each license authorizes the license holder to import a specified quantity and type of dairy article from a specified country of origin. The Import Policies and Export Reporting Division, Foreign Agricultural Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture, issues these licenses and, in conjunction with U.S. 38941 Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Department of Homeland Security, monitors their use. The regulation at 7 CFR 6.34(a) states that whenever a historical license is permanently surrendered, revoked by the Licensing Authority, or not issued to an applicant pursuant to the provisions of 6.23, then the amount of such license will be transferred to Appendix 2. Section 6.34(b) provides that the cumulative annual transfers will be published by notice in the Federal Register. Accordingly, this document sets forth the revised Appendices for the 2019 tariff-rate quota year in the table below. Although there are no changes to the quantities for designated licenses (Appendix 3 and Appendix 4) nor to the total amount for each article, those numbers are also included in the table below for completeness. Pursuant to the Congressional Review Act (5 U.S.C. 801 et seq.), the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs designated this rule as not a major rule, as defined by 5 U.S.C. 804(2).

AGENCY: Foreign Agricultural Service, USDA.

ACTION: Notice.

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

SUMMARY: This notice announces the transfer of amounts for certain 
dairy articles from the historical license category (Appendix 1) to the 
lottery (nonhistorical) license category (Appendix 2) pursuant to the 
Dairy Tariff-Rate Quota Import Licensing regulations, 7 CFR part 6, for 
the 2019 quota year.

DATES: August 8, 2019.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Abdelsalam El-Farra, (202) 720-9439; 
[email protected].

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Foreign Agricultural Service, under a 
delegation of authority from the Under Secretary for Trade and Foreign 
Agricultural Affairs, administers the Dairy Tariff-Rate Import Quota 
Licensing Regulation codified at 7 CFR 6.20-6.36 that provides for the 
issuance of licenses to import certain dairy articles under tariff-rate 
quotas (TRQs) as set forth in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) of 
the United States. These dairy articles may only be entered into the 
United States at the low-tier tariff by or for the account of a person 
or firm to whom such licenses have been issued and only in accordance 
with the terms and conditions of the regulation.
    Licenses are issued on a calendar year basis, and each license 
authorizes the license holder to import a specified quantity and type 
of dairy article from a specified country of origin. The Import 
Policies and Export Reporting Division, Foreign Agricultural Service, 
U.S. Department of Agriculture, issues these licenses and, in 
conjunction with U.S. Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Department of 
Homeland Security, monitors their use.
    The regulation at 7 CFR 6.34(a) states that whenever a historical 
license is permanently surrendered, revoked by the Licensing Authority, 
or not issued to an applicant pursuant to the provisions of 6.23, then 
the amount of such license will be transferred to Appendix 2. Section 
6.34(b) provides that the cumulative annual transfers will be published 
by notice in the Federal Register. Accordingly, this document sets 
forth the revised Appendices for the 2019 tariff-rate quota year in the 
table below. Although there are no changes to the quantities for 
designated licenses (Appendix 3 and Appendix 4) nor to the total amount 
for each article, those numbers are also included in the table below 
for completeness.
    Pursuant to the Congressional Review Act (5 U.S.C. 801 et seq.),
