Publication of the Foreign Trade Regulations (FTR): Request for Public Comments Regarding Standard and Routed Export Transactions:
The Census Bureau’s International Trade Management Division (ITMD) is announcing the publication of an Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM) seeking comments to perform a review of the requirements governing routed export transactions. Routed export transactions are those in which the Foreign Principal Party in Interest (FPPI) controls the movement of the goods out of the United States. The ANPRM is soliciting comments on the clarity, usability, and any other matters related to the regulatory requirements for routed transactions. This includes the definition, as well as the responsibilities of the parties involved.
The ANPRM can be found in its entirety at https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2017/10/06/2017-21569/foreign-trade-standard-and-routed-export-transactions. Please review the rule and submit your comments. All comments received will be taken into consideration when drafting the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking. For further information or questions about the FTR, contact the Trade Regulations Branch (TRB), ITMD.
