19 U.S. Code § 472 to 475 - Repealed. Aug. 8, 1953, ch. 397,
Effective Date of Repeal
Act Aug. 8, 1953, ch. 397, § 1,67 Stat. 507, provided that such act is effective, except as otherwise specifically provided for, on and after thirtieth day following date of its enactment (Aug. 8, 1953).
The exception “except as otherwise specifically provided for” apparently refers to amendments made to provisions preceding subd. (1) of section 1308 of this title and to section 1557 (b) of this title, for which separate effective dates were provided as explained in notes under those sections.
Act Aug. 8, 1953, ch. 397, § 23,67 Stat. 521, provided: “Except as may be otherwise provided for in this Act, the repeal of existing law or modifications thereof embraced in this Act shall not affect any act done, or any right accruing or accrued, or any suit or proceeding had or commenced in any civil or criminal case prior to such repeal or modification, but all liabilities under such laws shall continue, except as otherwise specifically provided in this Act, and may be enforced in the same manner as if such repeal, or modification had not been made.”
