ACTION:

Final rule; correction.

SUMMARY:

Customs and Border Protection (CBP) published in the Federal Register of March 17, 2011, a document which adopted as a final rule, with some changes, interim amendments to the CBP regulations to revise, update, and consolidate the regulatory provisions relating to the country of origin of textile and apparel products. The final rule document contained two errors in the Background portion of the document. The first error concerns an inadvertent reference to imported “antique Persian carpets” in an example prepared by CBP. Because carpets of Iranian-origin are currently prohibited from importation into the United States, the example should not have referenced Persian antique carpets. The example is changed to reflect a non-prohibited article—a Turkish antique carpet. The second error consists of an outdated Internet address that was provided by CBP relating to certain instructions for the completion of CBP Form 7501. This document corrects these two errors.

DATES:

Effective on March 24, 2011.
