Modification of Two National Customs Automation Program (NCAP) Tests Concerning Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) Document Image System (DIS) and Simplified Entry (SE)
Document Number: 2013-17580
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-07-23
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection
This document announces U.S. Customs and Border Protection's (CBP's) plan to modify the National Customs Automation Program (NCAP) tests concerning document imaging, known as the Document Image System (DIS) test, and entry capability, known as the Simplified Entry (SE) test. The DIS test allows certain Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) participants to submit electronic images of a specific set of CBP and partner government agency forms and supporting information to CBP via a CBP- approved Electronic Data Interchange (EDI). The second phase of the DIS test expands the eligible forms supported by the test as well as participant eligibility and when forms may be transmitted. CBP hopes that these modifications make the DIS more user-friendly. The SE test simplifies the entry process by reducing the number of data elements required to obtain release for cargo transported by air. This notice modifies the SE test to allow for certain data elements to be transmitted via the DIS. This notice provides DIS test details including commencement date for the second phase, eligibility, procedural and documentation requirements, and test development and evaluation methods.

Lifesaving Devices-Uninspected Commercial Barges and Sailing Vessels
Document Number: 2013-16955
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2013-07-17
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard proposes aligning its regulations with the 2010 Coast Guard Authorization Act. Before 2010, uninspected commercial barges and uninspected commercial sailing vessels fell outside the scope of a statute requiring the regulation of lifesaving devices on uninspected vessels. Lifesaving devices were required on uninspected commercial barges and sailing vessels only if they carried passengers for hire. The 2010 Act brought uninspected commercial barges and sailing vessels within the scope of the statutory requirement to carry lifesaving devices even if they carry no passengers. The Coast Guard proposes requiring use of wearable personal flotation devices for individuals on board uninspected commercial barges and sailing vessels, and amending several regulatory tables to reflect that requirement. This rulemaking promotes the Coast Guard's marine safety mission.
