Customs and Border Protection's Bond Program; Correction
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) published in the Federal Register of November 13, 2015, a final rule amending CBP's bond regulations. In that rule, CBP amended the regulation prescribing bond and rider filing requirements and stated, in the preamble, that the agency's intent was to provide additional time for the filing of these documents prior to their effective date. Due to a drafting error, one of the provisions inadvertently provides for a more restrictive time frame for filing a continuous bond, associated application, or rider prior to their effective date. This document corrects that provision to conform it to CBP's stated intent to liberalize the bond and rider filing process.
