General Program Test Extended: Quota Preprocessing
With this notice, the Bureau of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announces that the duration of the quota preprocessing program test, which provides for the electronic processing of certain quota- class apparel merchandise prior to arrival of the importing carrier, is extended until December 31, 2006. The quota preprocessing program test is currently being conducted at all CBP ports and was set to expire on December 31, 2004. The duration of the test is being extended so that CBP can continue to evaluate the program's effectiveness. Public comments concerning any aspect of the program test as well as applications to participate in the test are requested.
Modification of the National Customs Automation Program Test Regarding Reconciliation
This document modifies the Customs and Border Protection Automated Commercial System Reconciliation prototype test by changing the requirement for filing the Reconciliation entry from no later than 15 months to no later than 21 months after the date the importer declares its intent to file the Reconciliation. This change does not apply to Reconciliation entries covering NAFTA or US-CFTA claims. Other than this modification, the test remains the same as set forth in previously published Federal Register notices.
