Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

U.S. Customs and Border Protection has amended its regulations to conform to U.S. Coast Guard implementing regulations regarding certain boardings of vessels under the Maritime Transportation Act of 2002, which requires persons boarding a vessel arriving at a CBP port after that vessel is taken in charge by a CBP officer to comply with Transportation Worker Identification Credential requirements.

Specifically, CBP is amending 19 CFR 4.1 by (1) removing the obsolete reference to cutter and dock passes from the section heading; (2) revising the entire section to reflect that “Customs” is now known as “CBP”; (3) amending paragraph (c) by removing the obsolete language regarding cutter passes and Customs Form 3093 and by revising the paragraph to cross-reference the relevant Coast Guard regulations; (4) deleting the previously reserved paragraph (e); and (5) deleting the obsolete paragraph (f). CBP is also abolishing Customs Form 3093.
