Title: Agreement Between the United States of America, the United Mexican States, and Canada (USMCA) Implementing Regulations Related to Textile and Apparel Goods, Automotive Goods, and Other USMCA Provision 

This interim final rule amends the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) regulations to add implementing regulations for the preferential tariff treatment and related customs provisions of the Agreement Between the United States of America, the United Mexican States, and Canada (USMCA).  The USMCA applies to goods from Canada and Mexico entered for consumption, or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, on or after July 1, 2020.  This document amends part 182 of title 19 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) (19 CFR part 182) to implement the provisions in USMCA Chapters 1, 2, 4, 5, and 6 related to general definitions, drawback and duty-deferral programs, textile and apparel goods, and automotive goods, and to revise the scope, general verification and determination of origin, and penalties provisions in part 182, as necessary.  This document also includes the amendments to other parts of title 19 of the CFR necessary to fulfill CBP’s commitments in USMCA Chapters 2, 5, 6, and 7.  This includes the amendments to part 10 of title 19 of the CFR to implement the temporary admission of goods requirements set forth in USMCA Article 2.7, provide the necessary technical corrections to other laws as required by section 602 of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021, and make other conforming amendments.  This document amends 19 CFR 24.23 to revise the merchandise processing fee provisions to clarify that ad valorem, surcharge, and other specific fees do not apply to goods under the USMCA, makes the necessary revisions to 19 CFR 24.36, and makes other conforming amendments to 19 CFR parts 113, 123, 141, and 144.  CBP is also amending the recordkeeping provisions in part 163, including the appendix to part 163 (known as the (a)(1)(A) list), to implement the recordkeeping requirements in USMCA Article 5.8, and the protest provisions in part 174 to implement USMCA Articles 5.15 and 7.15.
