CBP Reviewing Information Collections on Exports, Origin Marking
U.S. Customs and Border Protection is accepting comments through March 9 on the proposed extension without change of Form 3495, Application for Exportation of Articles under Special Bond. This form is used by importers to notify CBP that they intend to export goods that were subject to a duty exemption based on a temporary stay in the U.S. It also serves as a permit to export in order to satisfy the importer's obligation to export the same goods and thereby get a duty exemption.
CBP is also accepting comments through March 9 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.
