TREAS/CUSTOMS RIN: 1515-AE49 Publication ID: Fall 2023 
Title: Elimination of Paper-Based Bond Applications and the Automated Processing of Bond Applications 

This Notice of Proposed Rulemaking proposes to amend the CBP regulations pertaining to bonds in 19 CFR part 113.  The proposed amendments eliminate the more onerous and inefficient paper-based bond application and approval processes.  Moving forward, the proposed amendments would implement the successful National Customs Automation Program (NCAP) test for electronic bonds ("eBonds").  The proposed amendments would require all bonds to be filed by the sureties using an electronic data interchange (EDI) or e-mail.
