New Test Program Regarding Electronic Foreign Trade Zone Admission Applications
Document Number: E7-5431
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-03-26
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, Bureau of Customs and Border Protection, Customs and Border Protection Bureau
In a document published in the Federal Register on August 19, 2005, the Bureau of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced its plan to conduct a voluntary program to test the viability of submitting electronic FTZ admission applications (CBP Form 214``FTZ Admission and/or Status Designation'') to CBP via the Automated Broker Interface (ABI). The test program was intended to run for a period of approximately 6 months from the program's September 30, 2005 commencement date with a final evaluation to take place at the end of that period. This notice informs interested members of the public that after CBP's initial evaluation of the test program, it was determined that due to the insufficient data collected the test should be run again for a period of approximately 6 months from March 26, 2007. The new test program is intended to encourage greater participation in the prototype by the trade and thereby provide CBP with more meaningful data by which to assess the feasibility of implementing the test program on a permanent basis.
