SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On March 15, 2021, CBP published in the Federal Register (86 FR 14245) an Interim Final Rule entitled Mandatory Advance Electronic Information for International Mail Shipments. As published, the Interim Final Rule inadvertently misnumbered the regulatory text found in 19 CFR 145.74(b)(2), which lists circumstances when AED is not required for international mail shipments. Specifically, section 145.74(b)(2) contains two subparagraphs numbered “(iii)”. CBP is correcting the numbering by re-numbering the current subparagraphs (iv) and (v) as subparagraphs (v) and (vi) respectively. CBP is further correcting the numbering by renumbering the second subparagraph (iii) as subparagraph (iv). Finally, CBP is correcting a typographical error in the Authority section.
