Agency: Department of Homeland Security, Department of the Treasury, Bureau of Customs and Border Protection, Customs and Border Protection Bureau
This document amends title 19 of the Code of Federal Regulations (19 CFR) to set forth special requirements for the entry of certain cement products from Mexico requiring a United States Department of Commerce import license. The cement products in question are those listed in the Agreement on Trade in Cement, entered into between the Office of the United States Trade Representative, the United States Department of Commerce, and Mexico's Secretaria de Economia, on March 6, 2006. The changes implemented by this document require an importer to submit to Customs and Border Protection (CBP) an import license number on the entry summary (CBP Form 7501) or on the application for foreign trade zone (FTZ) admission and/or status designation (CBP Form 214), for any cement product for which the United States Department of Commerce requires an import license under its cement licensing and import monitoring program. Additionally, an importer must submit a hard copy of the original valid Mexican export license with the entry documentation or provide such document to the FTZ operator, unless directed otherwise by CBP.
