5. DHS/CBP Announces Successful Conclusion of NCAP Test Concerning Submission of FSIS Data in ACE

(Source: Federal Register) [Excerpts.]
 
81 FR 62515-62516: Conclusion of the National Customs Automation Program (NCAP) Test Concerning the Submission of Data Required by the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) in the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE)
* AGENCY: U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Department of Homeland Security.
* ACTION: General notice.
* SUMMARY: This document announces the conclusion of the National Customs Automation Program (NCAP) test concerning the electronic transmission of certain import data required by the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) to the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) using the Partner Government Agency (PGA) Message Set. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has determined that the NCAP test has been a success, as ACE has proven capable of receiving and processing the data required by FSIS, and sharing that data with FSIS. Accordingly, this NCAP test will be concluded on October 11, 2016. CBP has made ACE the sole CBP-authorized electronic data interchange (EDI) system for most entry and entry summary filings, including entry and entry summary filings for meat, poultry and egg products regulated by FSIS. As a result, filers transmitting electronic import data required by FSIS with their electronic entry or entry summary must use ACE.
* DATES: The NCAP test will conclude on October 11, 2016.
* ADDRESSES: Comments concerning this notice and any aspect of this test may be submitted via email to Josephine Baiamonte, ACE Business Office (ABO), Office of Trade, at josephine.baiamonte@cbp.dhs.gov.
* FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For CBP-related questions, contact Jeffrey Nii, Director, Inter-Agency Collaboration Division, Office of Trade, at jeffrey.c.nii@cbp.dhs.gov.
* SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: …
   This notice announces that CBP has determined that ACE is fully capable of accepting electronic entries transmitted to ACE with the PGA Message Set data required for FSIS-regulated meat, poultry, and egg products. The electronic transmission of this data to ACE expedites delivery of this data to FSIS, thereby providing the data to FSIS before the products arrive for inspection. This allows FSIS to more effectively track and control shipments and improve compliance. Having found this test to be successful, CBP hereby concludes the test, effective October 11, 2016.
 
   Dated: September 1, 2016.

NWS_a210. ST&R Trade Report: “Foreign Policy-Based Export Controls Subject of Annual BIS Review”

(Source: ST&R Trade Report)
 
The Bureau of Industry and Security is seeking comments by Oct. 11 for its annual review of whether the foreign policy-based export controls in the Export Administration Regulations should be modified, rescinded, or extended from January 2017 to January 2018.
 
Coverage of Controls. Foreign-policy based export controls apply to a range of countries, items, activities, and persons, including the following:
 
  – entities acting contrary to U.S. national security or foreign policy interests
  – certain general purpose microprocessors for military end-uses and military end-users
  – hot section technology for the development, production, or overhaul of commercial aircraft engines, components, and systems
  – encryption items
  – crime control and detection items
  – specially designed implements of torture
  – certain firearms and related items
  – regional stability items
  – equipment and related technical data used in the design, development, production, or use of certain rocket systems and unmanned air vehicles
  – chemical precursors and biological agents, associated equipment, technical data, and software
  – various chemicals included on the list of those controlled pursuant to the Chemical Weapons Convention
  – communication intercepting devices, software, and technology
  – maritime nuclear propulsion
  – certain foreign aircraft and vessels
  – exports and reexports to certain persons designated as proliferators of weapons of mass destruction
  – certain cameras to be used by military end-users or incorporated into a military commodity
  – countries designated as supporters of acts of international terrorism
  – certain entities in Russia
  – individual terrorists and terrorist organizations
  – certain persons designated by Executive Order 13315 (“Blocking Property of the Former Iraqi Regime, Its Senior Officials and Their Family Members”)
  – certain sanctioned entities
  – embargoed countries
  – U.S. and UN arms embargoes
 
In addition, the EAR impose foreign policy-based export controls on certain nuclear-related commodities, technology, end-uses, and end-users.
 
Criteria for Determining Whether to Continue Controls. Among the criteria considered in determining whether to extend U.S. foreign policy-based export controls are the following:
 
  – the likelihood that such controls will achieve their intended foreign policy purposes in light of other factors, including the availability from other countries of the goods, software, or technology proposed for such controls
  – whether the foreign policy objective of such controls can be achieved through negotiations or other alternative means
  – the compatibility of the controls with U.S. foreign policy objectives and overall U.S. policy toward the country subject to the controls
  – whether the reaction of other countries to the extension of such controls is not likely to render the controls ineffective in achieving the intended foreign policy objective or be counterproductive to U.S. foreign policy interests
  – the comparative benefits to U.S. foreign policy objectives versus the effect of the controls on U.S. export performance, the competitive position of the U.S. in the international economy and the international reputation of the U.S. as a supplier of goods and technology
  – the ability of the U.S. to effectively enforce the controls
  – the economic impact of proliferation controls
Industry Information Sought. BIS is interested in industry information relating to the following.
  – the effect of foreign policy-based export controls on sales of U.S. products to third countries (i.e., those not targeted by sanctions), including the views of foreign purchasers or prospective customers regarding these controls
  – controls maintained by U.S. trade partners (e.g., the extent to which they have similar controls on goods and technology on a worldwide basis or to specific destinations)
  – licensing policies or practices by U.S foreign trade partners that are similar to U.S. foreign policy-based export controls, including license review criteria, use of conditions, and requirements for pre- and post-shipment verifications (preferably supported by examples of approvals, denials, and foreign regulations)
  – revisions to foreign policy-based export controls that would bring them more into line with multilateral practice
  – actions that would make multilateral controls more effective
  – the effect of foreign policy-based export controls on trade or acquisitions by the intended targets of the controls
  – the effect of foreign policy-based export controls on overall trade at the level of individual industrial sectors
  – how to measure the effect of foreign policy-based export controls on trade
  – the use of foreign policy-based export controls on targeted countries, entities, or individuals

This week’s blonde joke:

A blonde takes her car to a mechanic and says, “It’s running rough.”  The mechanic takes it in and returns a few minutes later. The blonde says, “Well, what’s the problem?” The mechanic replies, “Easy to fix — just crap in the carburetor.”  The blonde asks, “How often do I have to do that?”
  – Duane Stevens, Signal Hill, CA
