Technical Corrections Regarding the Methods of Collection of Certain User Fees by CBP
Document Number: 2013-01166
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-01-24
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Customs and Border Protection
This document amends the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) regulations in order to clarify that any applicable Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) user fee, which is called an Agricultural Quarantine and Inspection (AQI) user fee, for commercial trucks will be collected by CBP upon arrival into the United States at the same time that CBP collects its portion of this user fee and to reflect certain administrative changes pertaining to the collection of user fees. The regulation also clarifies that transponders have replaced decals for commercial truck user fee purposes and indicates that the Internet portal through which the public obtains decals and transponders has been renamed the ``Decal and Transponder Online Procurement System (DTOPS).'' In addition, the user fee decal program, certain administrative aspects of which had previously been managed by a private bank under a contract with CBP, is currently being administered entirely within CBP, and this document updates the addresses to which applicable forms and payments are to be mailed as a result of this change. Finally, this document amends the applicable regulations to provide for certain updated CBP form numbers, and to make nomenclature changes reflecting the transfer of CBP to the Department of Homeland Security. It should be noted that the amendments set forth in this document will not result in any change to the amount of the actual user fees.
