Inapplicability of Notice and Delayed Effective Date This amendment involves a foreign affairs function of the United States and is, therefore, being made without notice or public procedure (5 U.S.C. 553(a)(1)). For the same reason, a delayed effective date is not required under 5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3). Regulatory Flexibility Act Because no notice of proposed rulemaking is required, the provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601 et seq.) do not apply. Executive Order 12866 CBP has determined that this document is not a regulation or rule subject to the provisions of Executive Order 12866 because it pertains to a foreign affairs function of the United States, as described above, and therefore is specifically exempted by section 3(d)(2) of Executive Order 12866.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On December 23, 2020, Commerce published ‘‘Aluminum Import Monitoring and Analysis System,’’ (Final Rule) establishing the AIM system in part 361 that would be comprised of an aluminum import licensing program and a public AIM monitor, available through the AIM system website.1 On January 4, 2021, Commerce launched the AIM system website (https://www.trade.gov/ aluminum). The original effective date for part 361 was January 25, 2021, meaning that licenses would be required for all covered aluminum imports on or after this date.

This delay will allow Commerce time to finalize the license application system and to provide both the public and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) with sufficient advance notice of the new compliance date. In addition, the delay will allow Commerce to consider and respond, as appropriate, to the comments; Commerce intends to issue another notification addressing these comments prior to June 28, 2021. Therefore, unless otherwise announced, compliance for the majority of part 361 and the AIM system will be effective on June 28, 2021, meaning that licenses will be required for all covered aluminum imports on or after this date. Additionally, the remaining portions of the regulations concerning the removal of the option to state ‘‘unknown’’ for certain fields on the aluminum license form will be effective on December 24, 2021, as stated in the relevant sections of part 361, unless otherwise announced. For further background and information, see the Final Rule. Further guidance on licenses already issued and the issuance of new licenses in the intervening period before June 28, 2021 will be provided on the AIM system website. Although Commerce is delaying compliance with the majority of part 361 and the AIM system as described above, Commerce is moving forward with one aspect of the AIM system on March 29, 2021. Specifically, Commerce will release the public AIM monitor on the AIM system website on March 29, 2021. When released, the public AIM monitor will provide information on U.S. imports of aluminum from all countries by broad product categories in both value and volume measures. The public AIM monitor will initially only include publicly available import data, as the license information will not be available. Once the license collection begins, and Commerce has had sufficient time to review the license data, the public AIM monitor will report certain aggregate information on imports 2 Aluminum Import Monitoring and Analysis System: Delay of Effective Date, 86 FR 7237 (January 27, 2021). 3 These comments can be found by searching for the Final Rule (Docket No. ITA–2021–0001) on the Federal eRulemaking portal at http:// www.regulations.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On December 23, 2020, Commerce published 
``Aluminum Import Monitoring and Analysis System,'' (Final Rule) 
establishing the AIM system in part 361 that would be comprised of an 
aluminum import licensing program and a public AIM monitor, available 
through the AIM system website.\1\ On January 4, 2021, Commerce 
launched the AIM system website (https://www.trade.gov/aluminum). The 
original effective date for part 361 was January 25, 2021, meaning that 
licenses would be required for all covered aluminum imports on or after 
this date.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ Aluminum Import Monitoring and Analysis System, 85 FR at 
83804 (December 23, 2020) (Final Rule).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On January 27, 2021, Commerce published a notification delaying the 
effective date of the AIM system until March 29, 2021, and opening a 
30-day comment period to solicit public comment, on the January 27 
notification, that closed on February 26, 2021, on all aspects of the 
Final Rule and the AIM system.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ Aluminum Import Monitoring and Analysis System: Delay of 
Effective Date, 86 FR 7237 (January 27, 2021).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Upon receipt and consideration of the public comment,\3\ Commerce 
has determined that it is appropriate to delay compliance with most 
aspects of part 361 and the AIM system by an additional ninety days, by 
staying part 361. This delay will allow Commerce time to finalize the 
license application system and to provide both the public and U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) with sufficient advance notice of 
the new compliance date. In addition, the delay will allow Commerce to 
consider and respond, as appropriate, to the comments; Commerce intends 
to issue another notification addressing these comments prior to June 
28, 2021.

(Docket No. ITA-2021-0001) on the Federal eRulemaking portal at 
http://www.regulations.gov.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Therefore, unless otherwise announced, compliance for the majority 
of part 361 and the AIM system will be effective on June 28, 2021, 
meaning that licenses will be required for all covered aluminum imports 
on or after this date. Additionally, the remaining portions of the 
regulations concerning the removal of the option to state ``unknown'' 
for certain fields on the aluminum license form will be effective on 
December 24, 2021, as stated in the relevant sections of part 361, 
unless otherwise announced. For further background and information, see 
the Final Rule. Further guidance on licenses already issued and the 
issuance of new licenses in the intervening period before June 28, 2021 
will be provided on the AIM system website.
    Although Commerce is delaying compliance with the majority of part 
361 and the AIM system as described above, Commerce is moving forward 
with one aspect of the AIM system on March 29, 2021. Specifically, 
Commerce will release the public AIM monitor on the AIM system website 
on March 29, 2021. When released, the public AIM monitor will provide 
information on U.S. imports of aluminum from all countries by broad 
product categories in both value and volume measures. The public AIM 
monitor will initially only include publicly available import data, as 
the license information will not be available. Once the license 
collection begins, and Commerce has had sufficient time to review the 
license data, the public AIM monitor will report certain aggregate 
information on imports of aluminum product categories using both 
publicly available import data and data obtained from the aluminum 
licenses.
    Releasing the public AIM monitor, while delaying compliance with 
the license application system, is consistent with the historical 
release of the early Steel Import Monitor and Analysis (SIMA) monitor. 
When SIMA was first launched in early 2003, an early version of the 
SIMA monitor was released with only public data.\4\ This provided the 
public some details about what the monitor may look like and created 
public interest in SIMA before the implementation of the license 
application system. Commerce finds it appropriate to adopt a similar 
approach in this instance for the AIM system.
