Extension of Import Restrictions Imposed on Certain
Archaeological Material From China

Agency: 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 the extension of import restrictions on
certain archaeological material from the People's Republic of China
(China) and makes a technical change to the regulations to clarify that
the restriction to monumental sculpture and wall art at least 250 years
old should be calculated as of January 14, 2009, the date the
Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) became effective. These restrictions,
which were originally imposed by CBP Dec. 09-03, are due to expire on
January 14, 2014, unless extended.
