Document Number: E8-8095
Type: Rule
Date: 2008-04-17
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Department of the Treasury, Department of Treasury
This document adopts as a final rule, with changes, the interim rule amending title 19 of the Code of Federal Regulations (19 CFR) that was published in the Federal Register (71 FR 61399) on October 18, 2006 as Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Dec. 06-25. The interim rule amended the CBP regulations by prescribing the collection of certain entry summary information for purposes of monitoring and enforcing the Softwood Lumber Agreement (SLA 2006) between the Governments of Canada and the United States, entered into on September 12, 2006. In an effort to better enable CBP to accurately and timely fulfill its data collection and reporting obligations under the SLA 2006, this document identifies an additional entry code option that designates softwood lumber products that are specifically identified as exempt from SLA 2006 export measures pursuant to Annex 1A of the Agreement, notwithstanding the fact that the exempt goods are classifiable in residual Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States provisions that are listed as covered by the SLA 2006. This document also amends the list of required entry records set forth in the Appendix to part 163 of title 19 of the Code of Federal Regulations (19 CFR part 163) to reflect the recordkeeping requirements prescribed in CBP Dec. 06-25. Lastly, this document conforms the bond provisions applicable to certain imports of Canadian softwood lumber to reflect the softwood lumber provisions set forth in Sec. 12.140 of title 19 of the Code of Federal Regulations.
