Title 49 published on 16-Dec-2017 04:00
The following are ALL rules, proposed rules, and notices (chronologically) published in the Federal Register relating to 49 CFR Part 591 after this date.
On September 2, 2015, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) published an interim final rule and request for comment entitled “Allowing Importers to Provide Information to U.S. Customs and Border Protection in Electronic Format.” No comments were received in response to the interim final rule. Accordingly, this final rule confirms that the September 2, 2015 interim final rule will not be changed and its effective date is September 2, 2015.
This interim Final Rule amends NHTSA's regulation on the importation of motor vehicles and motor vehicle equipment subject to Federal safety, bumper and theft prevention standards by allowing importers to provide information to United States Customs and Border Protection (CBP) in either electronic or paper format. Presently, certain regulatory provisions require importers to provide documentation or information in a “written statement” or in ways that imply the submission of a paper document, including the phrases “in duplicate,” “a copy of,” a “document,” and “accompanied by a statement.” Over the course of the coming months, CBP plans to allow importers to file importation information in paper format only or electronic format only. To allow importers to choose their preferred format for filing information required by NHTSA, the agency is amending its importation regulations to specify that importers have the option to file all required information electronically, in addition to the paper option currently available. This document is being issued as an interim Final Rule to provide timely assistance to importers by allowing alternative methods of filing with CBP the importation information required by NHTSA. The amendments in this interim Final Rule do not create any new rights or obligations, nor impose any new reporting requirements. The agency herein requests comments on the rule. The agency will publish a notice responding to any comments received, if any, and will amend provisions of the regulation if appropriate.
