Modification and Clarification of the National Customs Automation Program Test Regarding Periodic Monthly Statements
This document announces changes to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection's (CBP) National Customs Automation Program (NCAP) test concerning periodic monthly statements (PMS) to reflect that CBP will identify PMS as paid upon the completion of the funds transfer when payment is made via Automated Clearinghouse (ACH). The trade community will experience no delays, interruptions, or process changes associated with the modifications. Except to the extent expressly announced or modified by this document, all aspects, rules, terms and conditions announced in previous notices regarding the test remain in effect. For ease of reference, CBP is reproducing the entire test, with the changes, in this document.
Technical Correction to Centers of Excellence and Expertise Regulations
On December 20, 2016, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) published an interim final rule in the Federal Register, which established the Centers of Excellence and Expertise (Centers) as a permanent organizational component of the agency and transitioned certain operational trade functions to the Center directors that traditionally resided with the port directors. This technical correction clarifies two sections of CBP regulations that do not currently reflect CBP's operational structure or the objective of the ``Regulatory Implementation of the Centers of Excellence and Expertise'' interim final rule. This document amends CBP regulations to correct the discrepancies.
