Courtesy Notice of Liquidation; Correction
Document Number: 2011-21620
Type: Rule
Date: 2011-08-24
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Department of the Treasury, Department of Treasury
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') published in the Federal Register of August 17, 2011, a final rule concerning the discontinuation of electronic courtesy notices of liquidation to importers of record whose entry summaries are filed in the Automated Broker Interface (``ABI''). In the preamble of the final rule document, CBP made a misstatement in a comment response regarding the availability to an importer of an Importer Trade Activity (ITRAC) reporta historical report on all of an importer's importation activity over a set time period. CBP incorrectly stated that C-TPAT members may receive ITRAC reports for free. This document corrects the August 17, 2011 document to reflect that the Importer Self-Assessment (``ISA'') members, rather than C-TPAT members, receive free ITRAC reports.

Duty-Free Treatment of Certain Visual and Auditory Materials
Document Number: 2011-21275
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-08-19
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Department of the Treasury, Department of Treasury
This document proposes to amend the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) regulations pertaining to the filing of documentation related to free entry of certain merchandise under Chapter 98 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). The proposed amendment would permit an applicant to file the documentation required for duty-free treatment of certain visual and auditory materials of an educational, scientific, or cultural character under subheading 9817.00.40, HTSUS, at any time prior to the liquidation of the entry. The regulation currently requires the filing of this documentation within 90 days of the date of entry. The proposed change would provide more time for the importer to provide the necessary certification documentation to CBP and would serve to align the filing of required certification documentation with a change in CBP policy that extended the liquidation cycle for entries in the ordinary course of business from 90 days to 314 days after the date of entry. The change is consistent with other regulations that govern the duty-free treatment of merchandise under Chapter 98, HTSUS.

Notice of Issuance of Final Determination Concerning Pocket Projectors
Document Number: 2011-12713
Type: Notice
Date: 2011-05-24
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection
This document provides notice that U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') has issued a final determination concerning the country of origin of pocket projectors. CBP was asked to consider two manufacturing scenarios, under which certain operations would be performed in Taiwan or in China. Based upon the facts presented, CBP has concluded that the manufacturing and testing operations performed in Taiwan do not substantially transform the non-TAA country components. The light engine module and the PCBA main board are the essence of the projectors and it is at their production where the last substantial transformation occurs. Therefore, when the light engine module and PCBA main board module are assembled and programmed in China, the country of origin of the projectors is China for purposes of U.S. government procurement. However, if the light engine module and PCBA main board module are assembled and programmed in Taiwan, then the country of origin of the projectors is Taiwan for purposes of U.S. government procurement.
