Import-related non-tariff measure, nes

In a final rule taking effect on September 20, 2016, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) set forth regulations to revise procedures and requirements for filing import, export, and re-export documentation for certain fishery products. The regulations integrate the collection of trade documentation within the government-wide International Trade Data System (ITDS) and require electronic information collection through the automated portal maintained by the Department of Homeland Security, Customs and Border Protection (CBP). NMFS will require annually renewable International Fisheries Trade Permits (IFTP) for the import, export, and re-export of certain regulated seafood commodities that are subject to trade monitoring programs and/or subject to trade documentation requirements under domestic law. 'These trade monitoring programs enable the United States to exclude products that do not meet the criteria for admissibility to U.S. markets,' according to NOAA, 'including products resulting from illegal, unregulated, and unreported (IUU) fishing activities.' The final rule consolidates existing international trade permits for regulated seafood products under the Antarctic Marine Living Resources (AMLR) and Highly Migratory Species International Trade Permit (HMS ITP) programs and expands the scope of the permit requirement to include regulated seafood products under the Tuna Tracking and Verification Program (TTVP). It also stipulates data and trade documentation for these programs that must be provided electronically to CBP, and addresses recordkeeping requirements for these programs in light of these changes. The countries listed here as affected are the top twenty suppliers of seafood products to the United States.
