Title: United States-Caribbean Basin Trade Partnership Act.

OMB Number: 1651-0083.

Form Number: 450.

Abstract: This collection of information is required to implement the duty preference provisions of the United States-Caribbean Basin Trade Partnership Act (CBTPA). The provisions of CBTPA were adopted by the U.S. with the enactment of the Trade and Development Act of 2000 (Pub. L.106-200). The objective of the CBTPA is to expand trade benefits to countries in the Caribbean Basin. For preferential treatment under CBTPA, importers are required to have CBTPA Certification of Origin (Form 450) in their possession at the time of the claim, and to provide it to CBP upon request. CBP uses the information provided on Form 450 to determine if an importer is entitled to preferential duty treatment under the provisions of the CBTPA.

Current Actions: This submission is being made to revise the burden hours as a result of revised estimates of the number of Form 450s are prepared and/or submitted to CBP.

Type of Review: Extension with a change to the burden hours.Start Printed Page 15447
