Information Collections on Origin Marking, Export License Transfer Under Review
U.S. Customs and Border Protection is requesting the submission no later than Dec. 7 of comments on the proposed extension without change of an information collection associated with the country of origin marking requirements for containers or holders. Each imported article of foreign origin, or its container, must be marked in a conspicuous place as legibly, indelibly and permanently as the nature of the article or container permits with the English name of the country of origin. This marking informs the ultimate purchaser in the U.S. of the name of the country in which the article was manufactured or produced.
Separately, the Bureau of Industry and Security is accepting through Nov. 5 comments on an information collection associated with export license transfer and duplicate license services. This collection is needed to provide services to exporters who have either lost their original license and require a duplicate or who wish to transfer their ownership of an approved license to another party.
