Fees for Customs Processing at Express Consignment Carrier Facilities
Document Number: E7-11071
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-06-08
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, Department of the Treasury
This document amends title 19 of the Code of Federal Regulations (19 CFR) to reflect changes to the customs user fee statute made by section 337 of the Trade Act of 2002 and section 2004(f) of the Miscellaneous Trade and Technical Corrections Act of 2004. The statutory amendments made by section 337 concern the fees payable for customs services provided in connection with the informal entry or release of shipments at express consignment carrier facilities and centralized hub facilities, and primarily serve to replace the annual lump sum payment procedure with a quarterly payment procedure based on a specific fee for each individual air waybill or bill of lading. Section 2004(f) amended the user fee statute by authorizing the assessment of both the merchandise processing fee and a reimbursable fee assessed on each air waybill or bill of lading for merchandise that is formally entered at these sites and valued at $2,000 or less. In addition, pursuant to the authority established in 19 U.S.C. 58c(b)(9)(B)(i), this document raises the existing $0.66 fee assessed on individual air waybills or bills of lading to $1.00 to more equitably align it with the actual costs incurred by CBP in processing these items.
Drawbridge Operation Regulations; Raritan River, Arthur Kill, and Their Tributaries, NJ
Document Number: 07-2869
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-06-08
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard is canceling the temporary deviation concerning the test operating schedule governing the AK Railroad Bridge across Arthur Kill at mile 11.6 between Staten Island, New York and Elizabeth, New Jersey. This deviation is canceled because the test schedule proved ineffective. In addition, the Commander, First Coast Guard District, has issued a new temporary deviation from the regulation governing the operation of the AK Railroad Bridge. This new temporary deviation requires the AK Railroad Bridge to remain in the open position at all times, except that, the draw would close for the passage of trains for two daily thirty minute closure periods within a designated one hour time frame on a fixed schedule with a one hour adjustment whenever high water occurs during or up to one hour after the applicable closure period. In addition, a number of unscheduled requests for thirty minute closure periods may be granted by the Coast Guard within one to three hours of receipt of the request. The purpose of this deviation is to test a new temporary change to the drawbridge operation schedule to help determine the most equitable and safe solution to facilitate the present and anticipated needs of navigation and rail traffic.
