Extension of Import Restrictions Imposed on Archaeological
Material From Cambodia From the Bronze Age Through the Khmer Era

AGENCIES: U.S. Customs and Border Protection; Department of Homeland
Security; Department of the Treasury.

ACTION: Final rule.


SUMMARY: This final rule amends the U.S. Customs and Border Protection
(CBP) regulations to reflect an extension of import restrictions on
certain archaeological material from Cambodia from the Bronze Age
through the Khmer era. The restrictions, which were originally imposed
by CBP Dec. 03-28, and last extended and amended by CBP Dec. 08-40, are
due to expire on September 19, 2013, unless extended.
    The Assistant Secretary for Educational and Cultural Affairs,
United States Department of State, has determined that factors for
entering into the agreement continue to warrant the imposition of
import restrictions. Accordingly, the restrictions will remain in
effect for an additional five years, and the CBP regulations are being
amended to indicate this further extension through September 19, 2018.
These restrictions are being extended pursuant to determinations of the
United States Department of State made under the terms of the
Convention on Cultural Property Implementation Act in accordance with
the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization
(UNESCO) Convention on the Means of Prohibiting and Preventing the
Illicit Import, Export and Transfer of Ownership of Cultural Property.
CBP Dec. 08-40 contains the Designated List of archaeological material
from Cambodia to which the restrictions apply.
