Background

The final regulations regarding foreign repairs to American vessels were published as T.D. 01-24 in the Federal Register (66 FR 16392) on Monday, March 26, 2001. In particular, these final regulations set forth the requirements regarding the declaration, entry, assessment of duty and processing of petitions for relief from duty for vessels of the United States which undergo foreign shipyard operations. The final rule document contained an error which could prove to Start Printed Page 20589be misleading and is in need of clarification.

Need for Correction

Specifically, the final rule document amended the authority citation for part 159, Customs Regulations (19 CFR part 159), by moving specific authority citations for certain regulatory sections in the part to the authority citation section set forth at the beginning of the part from parenthetical references set forth immediately following the text of the particular sections. However, it has come to Customs attention that these same changes relating to the authority citation for part 159 were previously made in an interim rule document that was published in the Federal Register (64 FR 56433) on October 20, 1999, as T.D. 99-75.

Correction of Publication

Accordingly, the publication on March 26, 2001, of the final regulations concerning foreign repairs to American vessels (T.D. 01-24) (FR Doc. 01-7325) is corrected as follows:

1. On page 16399, in the third column, under the heading, “PART 159—LIQUIDATION OF DUTIES”, correct amendatory instruction number 1 to read: “The authority citation for part 159 continues to read as follows:”
