Thursday, October 24, 2013
Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Drug Enforcement Administration is extending through Nov. 22 the period for public comments on the proposed extension of DEA Form 357, Application for Permit to Import Controlled Substances for Domestic and/or Scientific Purposes. This form is used by registrants who desire to import certain controlled substances into the United States to obtain an import permit.

The Bureau of Industry and Security is accepting comments through Nov. 25 on the proposed extension of an information collection on form BIS-647P entitled “Delivery Verification Procedure for Imports.” Foreign governments occasionally require U.S. importers of strategic commodities to furnish their foreign supplier with a U.S. delivery verification certificate validating that the commodities shipped to the U.S. were in fact received.

BIS is also inviting comments through Nov. 25 on the proposed extension of the International Import Certificate, form BIS-645P. This certificate is used by importers of strategic commodities to certify that those goods will not be reexported except in accordance with U.S. export control regulations. The U.S. government, in turn, certifies that such representations have been made.
