U.S. Customs and Border Protection January 14, 2014 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Documentation Related to Goods Imported From U.S. Insular Possessions
Document Number: 2014-00485
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-01-14
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Department of the Treasury
This document proposes to amend the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) regulations to eliminate the requirement that a customs official at the port of export verify and sign CBP Form 3229, Certificate of Origin for U.S. Insular Possessions, and to require only that the importer present this form, upon CBP's request, rather than with each entry as is currently required. CBP believes that these amendments will serve to streamline the certification process and modernize the entry process by making it more efficient, as it will reduce the overall administrative burden on the importing trade as well as on CBP. The importer is still required to maintain CBP Form 3229 in its possession or may be subject to the assessment of a recordkeeping penalty if it cannot be produced.
