SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

The temporary regulations that are the subject of this correction implemented some of the provisions of the Balanced Budget Act of 1997, (Pub. L. 105-33) and made clarifying changes to part 275. The temporary regulations were published in the Federal Register on December 22, 1999, (T.D. ATF-422, 64 FR 71947), and two corrections to the temporary rules were published on March 21, 2000, (T.D. ATF-422a, 65 FR 15058) and on July 24, 2000, (T.D. ATF-422b, 65 FR 45523). The temporary regulations require that, beginning January 1, 2000, importers of tobacco products must qualify for a permit to conduct that activity.

Need for Correction

As published, the temporary regulations contain an omission in the meaning of term “appropriate ATF officer.” The meaning of this term should also refer to ATF O 1130.15, Delegation Order—Delegation of Certain of the Director's Authorities in 27 CFR parts 270, 275 and 296. This document corrects this omission.
