Overview of This Information Collection
 
 – Title: Customs Declaration.
 – OMB Number: 1651-0009.
 – Form Number: CBP Form 6059B.
 – Abstract: CBP Form 6059B, Customs Declaration, is used as a standard report of the identity and residence of each person arriving in the United States. This form is also used to declare imported articles to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) in accordance with 19 CFR 122.27, 148.12, 148.13, 148.110, 148.111; 31 U.S.C. 5316 and section 498 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1498).
  Section 148.13 of the CBP regulations prescribes the use of the CBP Form 6059B when a written declaration is required of a traveler entering the United States. Generally, written declarations are required from travelers arriving by air or sea. Section 148.12 requires verbal declarations from travelers entering the United States. Generally, verbal declarations are required from travelers arriving by land. CBP continues to find ways to improve the entry process through the use of mobile technology to ensure it is safe and efficient. To that end, CBP is testing the operational effectiveness of a process which allows travelers to use a mobile app to submit information to CBP prior to arrival. This process, called Mobile Passport Control (MPC) which is a mobile app that allows travelers to self-segment upon arrival into the United States–a process also known as intelligent queuing. Another electronic process that CBP is testing in lieu of the paper 6059B is the Automated Passport Control (APC). This is a CBP program that facilitates the entry process for travelers by providing self-service kiosks in CBP’s Primary Inspection area that travelers can use to make their declaration.
  – A sample of CBP Form 6059B can be found 
here.
  – Current Actions: This submission is being made to extend the expiration date of this information collection with no change to the burden hours or to the information collected.
  – Type of Review: Extension (without change). … 
 
  Dated: July 17, 2018.

6. UK Parliament’s Committees on Arms Export Controls Publish Joint Policy Report

(Source: 
UK Parliament, 18 Jul 2018.) [Excerpts.]
 
A new report by Parliament’s Committees on Arms Export Controls (CAEC) comments on a variety of issues – including the regulation of arms-dealers; the quality of information in the public domain; concerns regarding auditing and end-user monitoring; concerns about the role of brokers / agents / advisors; concerns about enforcement and the capacity to enforce; and tackling alleged corruption in the arms trade. These issues were looked at in the context of the Committees’ review of the Government’s most recent annual reports on strategic export controls.
 
  – 
Read the summary
 
Chair’s Comments
 
The Committees’ Chair, Graham Jones MP, said: 
 
During our inquiry we heard from the defense industry, academic experts, campaign groups and the Government itself. The Committees have together agreed a report that looks in depth at this very sensitive area and makes a series of detailed, constructive suggestions to improve policy and procedures.  Although the UK has one of the toughest arms-control systems anywhere in the world, this in-depth analysis has highlighted some of the gaps in those controls. I am delighted that there was a consensual view across the Committees on what is a very thorough report. There are, however, outstanding questions and the Committees intend to look into these further in the future.
 
Committees on Arms Export Controls
 
CAEC consists of four House of Commons Committees meeting together to scrutinize the Government’s controls on exporting, and dealing in, both weapons and items with a potential military use. These Committees are the Defense, Foreign Affairs, International Development, and International Trade Committees
 
In their report, the Committees:
  – draw attention to the potentially significant impact of Brexit on UK arms export controls, and ask the Government to show that it is planning for the legal and other consequences of the UK ceasing to be part of EU arrangements in this area;
  – recommend the Government consider tightening the regulation of arms-dealers; 
  – ask the Government to provide information about situations where licensing decisions are made by Ministers, rather than by officials;
  – recommend that the Government consider introducing a presumption that certain licenses will be denied for exports to countries that have not signed the Arms Trade Treaty or are on the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s list of Human Rights Priority Countries;
  – are critical of the Government for presenting data in formats that are very difficult to use – and say that the Government has misrepresented data in relation to prosecutions over export-control offences;
  – ask the Government to review the resources given to HM Revenue & Customs for the enforcement of export controls;
  – express dissatisfaction at the Government’s admission that it carries out no auditing of overseas operations by UK companies in connection with licenses, recommending that the compliance-audit regime be extended accordingly; and
  – recommend that the Government consider whether to start monitoring where arms exports finally end up.
 
In addition, the Committees heard evidence linking middle-men in the arms industry to alleged corruption and diversion of arms to destinations for which they’ve not been licensed. The Committees noted they couldn’t judge the truth of these allegations, but took them very seriously, asking the Government to consider adjusting the criteria used to assess license applications to incorporate a criterion specially relating to corruption. …

Defense News: “Industry Execs Troubled by Britain’s Failure to Find Leader For Defense Export Agency”

(Source: 
Defense News, 19 Jul 2018.) [Excerpts.]
 
British industry executives say they are concerned over the government’s failure to permanently appoint an official to lead the country’s defense export organization despite the Treasury apparently relaxing pay restrictions to attract the right candidate.
 
Several executives, who all spoke to Defense News on condition of anonymity, pointed the finger of blame at the Treasury for the nine-month delay in finding a suitable candidate to head the £10 billion (U.S. $13 billion) defense and security export support effort.
 
The previous permanent director of the Defense and Security Organization, Stephen Phipson, announced his intention to move on nearly a year ago, leaving the post filled on a temporary basis at a time when Britain is looking for a major boost in defense exports to balance pretty much flat domestic spending in the sector. … 
 
The Labor government in 2008 stripped out what was then called the Defense Exports Sales Organization from the MoD and handed it the business department. The organization was subsequently moved onto the DIT when it was formed following the Brexit referendum in 2016.
 
  “It sends a muddled message to our customers if it appears that the defense department is not leading on some exports, but is on others,” [
Consultant Alex Ashbourne-Walmsley of Ashbourne Strategic Consulting
]said. “One of the greatest strengths of the old DESO was that it was clearly an extension of the MoD.”
 
Another executive said there was a “growing feeling it’s time to go back to the MoD.”

Sri Lanka’s Department of Commerce with the help of other government agencies launched a trilingual online platform to facilitate importers and exporters in the country.
 
Sri Lanka Trade information portal (SLTIP) which is the single stop point for all information relating to import and export in Sri Lanka can be accessed through 
www.srilankatradeportal.gov.lk.
 
Through this portal, traders will be able to get information about all the regulatory requirements they need to fulfill in order to carry out their transactions.
 
This website will assist importers and exporters with finding out what is required by each agency in relation to the specific businesses.
 
The website contains trade information relating to commodities and tariff, products, legal documents, measures, standards, procedures, and forms.
 

Trade portal also provides an easy way to look up a commodity by keywords or HS codes, a mandatory classification and declaration of goods coming into or leaving Sri Lanka. …

The Department of Commerce has self-initiated an investigation under section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962 to determine whether the present quantity and circumstances of uranium ore and product imports threaten to impair U.S. national security. A DOC press release explains that U.S. uranium production has dropped from 49 percent of U.S. requirements in 1987 to five percent today. In addition, three U.S. companies with mining operations have been idled in recent years and two major producers have laid off more than half their workforce over the last two years and are operating at roughly nine percent and 13 percent of capacity, respectively.
 
If the DOC (which must consult with the Department of Defense) concludes that uranium products are being imported in such quantities or under such circumstances as to threaten to impair U.S. national security, and the president concurs (a decision he would have up to 90 days after the DOC’s report to make), the president would have broad authority to adjust imports, including through the use of tariffs and quotas. The petitioner has requested relief in the form of (1) a quota that would reserve 25 percent of the U.S. market for U.S. uranium and (2) a Buy America policy for U.S. government agencies that utilize uranium. Any import adjustments, or any other non-trade-related actions the president may elect to take, would be imposed within 15 days of the president’s determination to act.
 
The DOC has up to 270 days to conclude a section 232 investigation and submit its report and recommendations to the president. A hearing date and request for public comments are expected to be published shortly in the Federal Register.

UPI: “Experts: China Poses Threats to U.S. Through Technology Transfers”
(Source: 
UPI, 19 Jul 2018.) [Excerpts.] 
 
China’s systematic technology transfers through industrial espionage, state-sponsored theft and infiltrating academia are acts of war and should be combated aggressively, experts and members of Congress said Thursday.
 
  “We need to quit talking about Russia,” NanoMech Chairman and CEO James Phillips said in an open hearing held by the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. “There is a real war going on, a cyber war like never before, invading the United States every day, trying to take over in terms of all our science and technology.”
 
By aggressively acquiring U.S. intellectual property, China has gained and consolidated economic and military advantages, said House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif. “Congress should give [the federal government] the ability to ensure China is not posing a national security risk through acquisition of sensitive U.S. assets.” … 
 
  “Any of the steps we take to deter technology transfer from China — which include both CFIUS reform and changes to export controls — needs to be coordinated with allies to be effective,” [
Michael Brown, former CEO of Symantec,] responded. …

The Wall Street Journal: “Congress to Toughen Foreign Investment Reviews Amid Trade Fight With China”
(Source: 
The Wall Street Journal, 19 Jul 2018.) [Excerpts.] 
 
Congress is poised to strengthen the procedures for vetting both foreign investments in the U.S. and overseas transactions involving cutting-edge American technology.
 
Negotiators from the Senate and the House reached a deal on the final text of the provision to bolster both the Committee on Foreign Investment in the U.S. and the U.S. export-control system, in an effort to block Chinese and other foreign transactions that could harm national security.
 
The measure represents the first major change in a decade to the rules governing foreign investment reviews, and its impending passage follows a bruising battle among lawmakers and some of the country’s biggest companies.
 
  “It’s a done deal,” said Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R., Texas), one of the architects of the initiative, in a Thursday interview. …
