Extension of Import Restrictions Imposed on Archaeological Material from Mali
Document Number: 07-4659
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-09-19
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Department of Treasury
This document amends U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) regulations to reflect both continuing and new import restrictions on certain archaeological material from Mali. Import restrictions that were previously imposed by Treasury Decision (T.D.) 97-80 and extended by T.D. 02-55, that are due to expire on September 19, 2007, are extended. The Acting Assistant Secretary for Educational and Cultural Affairs, United States Department of State, has made the requisite determination for the extension of import restrictions that previously existed and for amending the agreement so that it applies also to material from archaeological sites throughout Mali, including those of the Paleolithic Era (Stone Age), necessitating additional subcategories of stone objects in the Designated List. Accordingly, these import restrictions will remain in effect until September 19, 2012, and title 19 of the CBP regulations is being amended to reflect this amended bilateral agreement. These restrictions are being extended pursuant to determinations of the United States Department of State made under the terms of the 1970 Convention on Cultural Property Implementation Act in accordance with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Convention on the Means of Prohibiting and Preventing the Illicit Import, Export and Transfer of Ownership of Cultural Property. This document also contains the amended Designated List of Archaeological Material that describes the articles to which the restrictions apply, including the additional subcategories of stone objects.
