Background

A general notice document was published in the Federal Register (67 FR 61200) on Friday September 27, 2002, to announce certain modifications to the Automated Commercial System (ACS) Reconciliation Prototype test regarding NAFTA Reconciliation entries, the method for filing Reconciliation entries covering flagged entry summaries for which liquidated damages have been assessed, acceptance of compact disks for Reconciliation spreadsheets, and applicability to test participants of previously suspended regulatory provisions of part 111, Customs Regulations. The notice also provided clarifications and reminders to test participants regarding certain other aspects of the test and announced a new address for Reconciliation submissions for the port of NY/Newark.

In the third paragraph of the “Background” section of the general notice, it stated that among the topics related to the test for which Customs was providing clarifications and reminders was the “right to file Reconciliation entries.” Inadvertently, the language reminding Reconciliation test participants who has the right to file entries under the test was omitted from the “Clarifications and Reminders” section of the notice.

This document sets forth the omitted language.
