Background

On September 5, 2000, Customs published in the Federal Register (65 FR 53565) T.D. 00-57 that revised the Customs Regulations relating to the filing of petitions in penalty, liquidated damages, and seizure cases. Parts 171 and 172 of the Customs Regulations were recrafted in that document to include petition processing in seizure and unsecured penalty cases under part 171 and liquidated damages and secured penalty petition processing under part 172. It has come to Customs attention that the amendatory instructions regarding appendix C to part 171 set forth in that document inadvertently failed to remove a section and a note in the Appendix which were Start Printed Page 65770intended to be removed. Not removing the section resulted in the next section being redesignated incorrectly. Section I.H. and the note following section I.H. were intended to be removed, but were not, and section I.H. was incorrectly designated as section I.F. This document corrects these errors by removing section I.H. and the note following section I.H., and redesignating section I.I. as section I.F.
