The final rule amending the Customs Regulations by which Customs administers the vessel repair statute (19 U.S.C. 1466) was published in the Federal Register on March 26, 2001 (66 FR 16392). The amendments, which appear at § 4.14 of the Customs Regulations (19 CFR 4.14), go into effect on April 25, 2001, with respect to American vessels arriving in the United States directly from foreign ports.

Customs has determined that it is appropriate to hold a public meeting in order to discuss the changes resulting from the amendments to the vessel repair regulations. Additionally, the meeting will provide a forum for the discussion of vessel-related penalties. Representatives from Customs Headquarters Office of Regulations and Rulings, as well as knowledgeable personnel from the Port of New Orleans, will preside over the meeting.

To ensure adequate seating, it is requested that interested persons submit notice of intent to attend the meeting via e-mail to by close of business, Monday April 30, 2001. The notice should provide the company name, the name and title of the attendee(s), and a named point of contact, including telephone number and e-mail address, in the event Customs needs to notify an attendee of any changes to the program.
