Customs and Border Protection Bureau 2009 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Imported Directly Requirement Under the United States-Bahrain Free Trade Agreement
Document Number: E9-11986
Type: Rule
Date: 2009-05-22
Agency: Customs and Border Protection Bureau, Department of Homeland Security, Department of the Treasury
This document amends the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) regulations in title 19 of the Code of Federal Regulations (19 CFR) on an interim basis to change certain provisions relating to the requirement under the United States-Bahrain Free Trade Agreement (BFTA) that a good must be ``imported directly'' from one BFTA Party to the other Party to qualify for preferential tariff treatment. The change involves removing the condition that a good passing through the territory of an intermediate country while en route from a Party to the other Party must remain under the control of the customs authority of the intermediate country. This change more closely conforms these regulatory provisions to the BFTA and the BFTA implementing statute.
