Download as PDF khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES 46752 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 172 / Thursday, September 5, 2019 / Notices Preliminary Periodic Monthly Statement. If an ACH debit participant fails to submit an ACH debit authorization for a Preliminary Periodic Daily Statement within 10 working days of the date of entry, payment for the Preliminary Periodic Daily Statement is considered late; however, the ACH debit participant will still be permitted to submit the ACH debit authorization. CBP will transmit the debit authorizations compiled in the Preliminary Periodic Monthly Statement to the financial institution on the 15th working day of the month following the month in which the merchandise is either entered or released, whichever comes first, unless the importer or the importer’s designated broker selects an earlier date. ACH debit participants must ensure that the money amount identified on the Preliminary Periodic Monthly Statement is, in fact, available in their bank account by the 15th working day of that month. g. For ACH credit participants, CBP must receive the ACH credit payment no later than the 15th day of the month following the month in which the merchandise scheduled for monthly processing is either entered or released, whichever comes first, or if that day falls on a weekend or holiday, the business day directly preceding such weekend or holiday, unless the importer or the importer’s designated broker selects an earlier date. h. For both ACH credit and ACH debit participants, once CBP receives confirmation from Treasury that the funds are available and transferred to CBP (which marks the completion of the funds transfer), then CBP will: (1) Issue the Final Periodic Monthly Statement and identify it as paid; (2) transmit the Final Periodic Monthly Statement to the importer or the importer’s designated broker; and (3) treat the date of CBP’s acceptance of the ACH credit or debit payment as the effective payment date of the PMS for purposes of the calculation of interest and/or liquidated damages, if applicable. CBP will generate the Final Periodic Monthly Statement on the night that payment is processed. i. Importers choosing to file a single entry involving split shipments consistent with the provisions of 19 CFR 141.57(d)(1) or unassembled or disassembled entities consistent with the provisions of 19 CFR 141.58(d)(1) may pay estimated duties, taxes, and fees attributable to those entries through the method set forth in the PMS test. The date of filing of that entry identifies the month in which entry is filed and establishes the obligation to pay estimated duties, taxes, and fees by the VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:53 Sep 04, 2019 Jkt 247001 15th working day of the month following the month in which entry is filed. j. Importers choosing to file incremental entries involving split shipments consistent with the provisions of 19 CFR 141.57(d)(2) or unassembled or disassembled entities consistent with the provisions 19 CFR 141.58(d)(2) as a special permit for immediate delivery after the arrival of the first portion (Incremental Release) also may pay estimated duties, taxes, and fees attributable to that entry through the method set forth in the PMS test. The date that the importer obtains release of the first portion of the entity (as provided in 19 CFR 141.57(e) or 19 CFR 141.58(e)) will identify the month that the entry is filed and establishes the obligation to pay estimated duties, taxes, and fees by the 15th working day of the month following the month in which entry is filed. Participants should note that if they voluntarily remove an entry from a Periodic Daily Statement before expiration of the 10-working-day period after release, that entry may be placed on another Periodic Daily Statement falling within the same 10-working-day period. If, however, participants remove an entry from a Periodic Daily Statement after expiration of the 10working-day period after release, the entry may be the subject of a claim for liquidated damages for late payment. V. Previous Notices and Suspension of Regulations For purposes of this test, any provision in title 19 of the Code of Federal Regulations including, but not limited to, the provisions found in parts 24, 141, 142, and 143 thereof relating to entry summary filing and processing that are inconsistent with the requirements set forth in this notice are waived for the duration of the test. See 19 CFR 101.9(b). This document does not waive any recordkeeping requirements found in part 163 of title 19 of the Code of Federal Regulations (19 CFR part 163) and the Appendix to part 163 (commonly known as the ‘‘(a)(1)(A) list’’).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, we provide the general public and other Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on new, proposed, revised, and continuing collections of information. This helps us assess the impact of our information collection requirements and minimize the public’s reporting burden. It also helps the public understand our information collection requirements and provide the requested data in the desired format. On December 27, 2018, we published a Federal Register notice soliciting SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\05SEN1.SGM 05SEN1 khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 172 / Thursday, September 5, 2019 / Notices comments on this collection of information for 60 days, ending on February 25, 2019 (83 FR 66740). We received one comment in response to the Federal Register notice: Comment: On February 11, 2019, we received a comment from the Executive Director of the Zoological Association of America (ZAA). The ZAA strongly opposes the elimination of recordkeeping requirements or any further preference proposed by the Service for wildlife sanctuaries under the Captive Wildlife Safety Act. The ZAA specifically cited their objection to the ‘‘accredited wildlife sanctuary’’ exemption that they feel largely hinges on IRS 501(c)(3) status and not wildlife expertise. ZAA stated that any reputable wildlife holding facility should have extensive records, including acquisition and disposition records, as well as husbandry and medical records. These records establish the basis of knowledge and care of every animal in the care of a facility, and no facility, accredited or not, should be exempt from having such records. Agency Response: No action required. The Service is not seeking to eliminate the records keeping requirement. The Federal Register notice announced our intention to renew the information collection requirements established under the CWSA for accredited wildlife sanctuaries. Additionally, changes to, or removal of, the eligibility requirements by accredited wildlife sanctuaries under the CWSA would require a substantive change to the Act by Congress. Such changes would not be part of this information collection. We are again soliciting comments on the proposed ICR that is described below. We are especially interested in public comment addressing the following issues: (1) Is the collection necessary to the proper functions of the Service; (2) will this information be processed and used in a timely manner; (3) is the estimate of burden accurate; (4) how might the Service enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (5) how might the Service minimize the burden of this collection on the respondents, including through the use of information technology. Comments that you submit in response to this notice are a matter of public record. Before including your address, phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:53 Sep 04, 2019 Jkt 247001 withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so. Abstract: The Captive Wildlife Safety Act (CWSA; Pub. L. 108–191; 16 U.S.C. 3371 note and 16 U.S.C. 3372 note) amends the Lacey Act (16 U.S.C. 3371 et seq.; 18 U.S.C. 42–43) by making it illegal to import, export, buy, sell, transport, receive, or acquire, in interstate or foreign commerce, live lions, tigers, leopards, snow leopards, clouded leopards, cheetahs, jaguars, or cougars, or any hybrid combination of any of these species, unless certain exceptions are met. The CWSA was signed into law in 2003 and enforcement began on September 17, 2007. There are several exemptions to the prohibitions of the CWSA, including accredited wildlife sanctuaries. There is no requirement for wildlife sanctuaries to submit applications to qualify for the accredited wildlife sanctuary exemption. Wildlife sanctuaries themselves will determine if they qualify. As a matter of routine, we do not inspect or follow-up on wildlife sanctuaries unless we have cause for concern. To qualify, they must meet all of the following criteria: • Obtain approval by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as a corporation that is exempt from taxation under section 501(a) of the IRS Code of 1986 (Pub. L. 99–514), which is described in sections 501(c)(3) and 170(b)(1)(A)(vi) of that code. • Do not engage in commercial trade in the prohibited wildlife species, including offspring, parts, and products. • Do not propagate the prohibited wildlife species. • Have no direct contact between the public and the prohibited wildlife species. The basis for this information collection is the recordkeeping requirement that we place on accredited wildlife sanctuaries. We require accredited wildlife sanctuaries to maintain complete and accurate records of any possession, transportation, acquisition, disposition, importation, or exportation of the prohibited wildlife species as defined in the CWSA (see title 50 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) at part 14, subpart K). Records must be up to date and include: (1) Names and addresses of persons to or from whom any prohibited wildlife species has been acquired, imported, exported, purchased, sold, or otherwise transferred; and (2) dates of these transactions. Accredited wildlife sanctuaries must: • Maintain these records for 5 years.
