IMMEDIATE DELIVERY PROCEDURES AT YEAR-END

12/12/2000

THE OFFICE OF TRADE PROGRAMS IS ISSUING A BLANKET AUTHORIZATION FOR IMMEDIATE DELIVERY (ID) PROCEDURES FOR MERCHANDISE TO BE RELEASED ON OR AFTER DECEMBER 15, 2000, AND UNTIL DECEMBER 31, 2000, IN ACCORDANCE WITH 19 CFR 142.21 (G). THE AUTHORIZATION IS OFFERED TO FILERS WHO MAY WANT TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF REDUCED TARIFF RATES OR SPECIAL PROGRAMS WHICH TAKE EFFECT ON OR AFTER JANUARY 1, 2001.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS BLANKET AUTHORIZATION DOES NOT APPLY TO ABSOLUTE QUOTA MERCHANDISE AND MERCHANDISE MOVED UNDER AN IMMEDIATE TRANSPORTATION ENTRY (TYPE 61). TARIFF RATE QUOTA MERCHANDISE PREVIOUSLY AUTHORIZED FOR ID RELEASE UNDER 19 CFR 142.21 (E) MAY STILL BE RELEASED UNDER ID; HOWERVER, THE ENTRY SUMMARY SHALL BE PRESENTED WITHIN THE TIME SPECIFIED IN 19 CFR 142.23, OR WITHIN THE QUOTA PERIOD, WHICHEVER EXPIRES FIRST.

IN THOSE INSTANCE WHERE THE CF 3461/CF 3461 (ALT) IS USED AS THE ENTRY DOCUMENT AND IMPORTERS WISH TO ELECT ID, A LINE MUST BE DRAWN THROUGH THE WORD "ENTRY" ON THE DOCUMENT. THIS WILL INDENTIFY THE CHANGE FROM "ENTRY" TO "IMMEDIATE DELIVERY" AND WILL ALLOW FILERS TO ELECT A DATE OF ENTRY IN ORDER TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF TARIFF CHANGES OR SPECIAL PROGRAMS. UNDER ID PROCEDURES, THE ENTRY/ENTRY SUMMARY MUST BE FILED WITHIN 10 WORKING DAYS AFTER RELEASE. THIS BLANKET AUTHORITY EXTENDS TO SHIPMENTS RELEASED DECEMBER 15, 2000 THROUGH DECEMBER 31, 2000 ONLY.

ABI FILERS WHO RECEIVE A "PAPERLESS" PROVISIONAL SELECTIVITY MESSAGE CAN ESTABLISH THEIR DESIRED ENTRY DATE BY USING THE ESTIMATED ENTRY DATE FIELD IN THE SUMMARY TRANSMISSION ("EI" TRANSMISSION). PLEASE NOTE THAT IF THIS DATE DOES NOT SHOW A 2001 DATE, THEN THE 2000 DUTY RATE WILL BE APPLICABLE
