Modification and Clarification of the National Customs Automation Program Tests Regarding Post-Summary Corrections and Periodic Monthly Statements; Republication With Correction and Further Clarification
Document Number: 2017-00128
Type: Notice
Date: 2017-01-09
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection
On December 12, 2016, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) published in the Federal Register a document announcing CBP's plans to modify and clarify the National Customs Automation Program (NCAP) test regarding Post-Summary Correction (PSC) claims to entry summaries that are filed in the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE), as well as the Periodic Monthly Statement (PMS) test. The notice liberalized and eliminated some requirements needed for the filing of PSCs; however, it also placed burdens on the importer in the form of a restriction and a prohibition. Subsequently, CBP decided to remove the restriction imposed on all PSC filings to make payments within three business days of submitting the PSC, with the exception of entry type 03 filings, and to remove the prohibition of filing additional PSCs until additional duties, fees and taxes are deposited. This document republishes and supersedes the document published on December 12 with these corrections and clarifications. Except to the extent expressly announced or modified by this document, all aspects, rules, terms and conditions announced in notices previous to this notice and the December 12 publication regarding the tests remain in effect.
Special Local Regulation; Manatee River; Bradenton, FL
Document Number: 2017-00109
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2017-01-09
Agency: Coast Guard, Department of Homeland Security
The Coast Guard proposes to establish a special local regulation for certain waters of the Manatee River during the Bradenton Area River Regatta. This action is necessary to protect the safety of race participants, participant vessels, spectators, and the general public on these navigable waters of the United States during the event. The special local regulation would restrict vessel traffic in the waters of the Manatee River in the vicinity of Bradenton, Florida. It would establish the following three areas: Two spectator areas, where all vessels must be anchored or operate at No Wake Speed; and an enforcement area where designated representatives may control vessel traffic as determined by the prevailing conditions.
