Document Number: 2011-6945
Type: Rule
Date: 2011-03-24
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Department of the Treasury
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) published in the Federal Register of March 17, 2011, a document which adopted as a final rule, with some changes, interim amendments to the CBP regulations to revise, update, and consolidate the regulatory provisions relating to the country of origin of textile and apparel products. The final rule document contained two errors in the Background portion of the document. The first error concerns an inadvertent reference to imported ``antique Persian carpets'' in an example prepared by CBP. Because carpets of Iranian-origin are currently prohibited from importation into the United States, the example should not have referenced Persian antique carpets. The example is changed to reflect a non-prohibited articlea Turkish antique carpet. The second error consists of an outdated Internet address that was provided by CBP relating to certain instructions for the completion of CBP Form 7501. This document corrects these two errors.

Type: Rule

The primary regulatory change consists of the elimination of the requirement that a textile declaration be submitted for all importations of textile and apparel products. In addition, to improve the quality of reporting of the identity of the manufacturer of imported textile and apparel products, this document adopts as a final rule an amendment requiring importers to identify the manufacturer of such products through a manufacturer identification code (``MID'').

Land Border Carrier Initiative Program
Document Number: 2011-2694
Type: Rule
Date: 2011-02-08
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection
This document amends U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) regulations by removing the provisions pertaining to the Land Border Carrier Initiative Program (LBCIP). The LBCIP was established as a voluntary industry partnership program under which participating land and rail commercial carriers would agree to enhance the security of their facilities and conveyances to prevent controlled substances from being smuggled into the United States. Because CBP has developed a more comprehensive voluntary industry partnership program known as the Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT), CBP is terminating the LBCIP and will focus its partnership efforts on the further development of C-TPAT. C-TPAT builds upon the best practices of the LBCIP, while providing greater border and supply chain security with expanded benefits to approved participants.
Airports of Entry or Departure for Flights to and From Cuba
Document Number: 2011-2011
Type: Rule
Date: 2011-01-28
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection
Under Department of Homeland Security (DHS) regulations, direct flights between the United States and Cuba must arrive at or depart from one of three named U.S. airports: John F. Kennedy International Airport, Los Angeles International Airport, or Miami International Airport. This document amends current DHS regulations to allow additional U.S. airports that are able to process international flights to request approval of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to process authorized flights between the United States and Cuba. These amendments are in accordance with the President's recent statement easing the restrictions placed on flights to and from Cuba by, among other things, providing that eligible airports may seek approval from CBP to accommodate flights arriving from, or departing for, Cuba. This statement builds upon the President's 2009 initiative to promote democracy and human rights in Cuba by easing travel restrictions to facilitate greater contact between separated family members in the United States and Cuba.
