Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Department of Justice’s Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is accepting through Sept. 20 comments on the proposed extension of form ATF F 6 Part 1, Application and Permit for Importation of Firearms, Ammunition and Implements of War. This form is used to determine whether such products are eligible for importation into the U.S. and serves as authorization to U.S. Customs and Border Protection to allow these articles entry into the U.S.

The Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Marketing Service is accepting comments through Aug. 21 on an information collection associated with the exportation of fresh apples and grapes. Such shipments must be inspected and certified by federal or federal-state inspection service inspectors. Official FSIS inspection certificates and phytosanitary certificates issued by USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service provide the needed information. Export carriers are required to keep copies of inspection certificates for apples and grapes on file for three years.
