Overview of This Information Collection Title: Entry/Immediate Delivery Application and ACE Cargo Release. OMB Number: 1651–0024. Form Number: CBP Forms 3461 and 3461 ALT. Current Actions: Revision. Type of Review: Revision. PO 00000 Frm 00041 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Affected Public: Businesses. Abstract: All items imported into the United States are subject to examination before entering the commerce of the United States. There are two procedures available to effect the release of imported merchandise, including ‘‘entry’’ pursuant to 19 U.S.C. 1484, and ‘‘immediate delivery’’ pursuant to 19 U.S.C. 1448(b). Under both procedures, CBP Forms 3461, Entry/Immediate Delivery, and 3461 ALT are the source documents in the packages presented to Customs and Border Protection (CBP). The information collected on CBP Forms 3461 and 3461 ALT allow CBP officers to verify that the information regarding the consignee and shipment is correct and that a bond is on file with CBP. CBP also uses these forms to close out the manifest and to establish the obligation to pay estimated duties in the time period prescribed by law or regulation. CBP Form 3461 is also a delivery authorization document and is given to the importing carrier to authorize the release of the merchandise. CBP Forms 3461 and 3461 ALT are provided for by 19 CFR 142.3, 142.16, 141.22, and 141.24. The forms and instructions for Form 3461 are accessible at: https://www.cbp.gov/ newsroom/publications/forms?title= 3461&=Apply. Ace Cargo Release (formerly referred to as ‘‘Simplified Entry’’) is a program for ACE entry summary filers in which importers or brokers may file ACE Cargo Release data in lieu of filing the CBP Form 3461. This data consists of 12 required elements: Importer of record; buyer name and address; buyer employer identification number (consignee number), seller name and address; manufacturer/supplier name and address; Harmonized Tariff Schedule 10-digit number; country of origin; bill of lading; house air waybill number; bill of lading issuer code; entry number; entry type; and estimated shipment value. The four optional data elements are: The container stuffing location, consolidator name and address, ship to party name and address, and the three Global Business Identifier (GBI) identifiers: (20-digit Legal Entity Identifier (LEI), 9-digit Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS), and 13-digit Global Location Number (GLN)) for the entry filer and the manufacturer/producer, seller and shipper, and optionally, for the exporter, distributor and packager. The GBI identifiers are the new optional data elements that are being collected to better identify the legal entity that is interacting with CBP. The data collected under the ACE Cargo Release program is E:\FR\FM\02MRN1.SGM 02MRN1 Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 41 / Wednesday, March 2, 2022 / Notices intended to reduce transaction costs, expedite cargo release, and enhance cargo security. ACE Cargo Release filing minimizes the redundancy of data submitted by the filer to CBP through receiving carrier data from the carrier. This design allows the participants to file earlier in the transportation flow. Guidance on using ACE Cargo Release may be found at http://www.cbp.gov/ trade/ace/features. It should be noted that ACE Cargo Release was previously called Simplified Entry. Type of Information Collection: Form 3461 Entry/Immediate Delivery (Paper Only).

Type of Review: New Information Collection. Affected Public: Businesses. Abstract: U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is launching a Global Business Identifier (GBI) Evaluative Proof of Concept (EPoC) which aims to determine a single identifier solution that will uniquely discern main legal entity and ownership; specific business and global locations; and supply chain roles and functions. Entry filers must signal their intent to participate in the GBI EPoC, by email as discussed in the Federal Register notice announcing the test, and must obtain and submit (or indicate that they are in the process of obtaining) all three GBI identifiers for their shippers, manufacturers and sellers, as part of their email. The identifiers provide additional information about trade entities and supply chain locations associated with U.S. imports, to CBP for enrollment into the GBI EPoC and, if selected, during the Entry process. The three identifiers are: • Legal Entity Identifier (LEI)—managed and made available by the Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF) • Global Location Number (GLN)— owned and managed by GS1 • Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS)—owned and managed by Dun & Bradstreet (D&B) GBI EPoC participants will also provide applicant information: Company/entity legal name, legal entity headquarters and/or manufacturing site address, business phone number (associated with provided address), company website, Manufacture/Shipper Identification Code (MID), and Authorized Economic Operator (AEO) identification number (optional). Automated Broker Interface (ABI) filers (including brokers and self-filers) will be required to complete a GBI E:\FR\FM\02MRN1.SGM 02MRN1
