Extension of Import Restrictions on Archaeological and
Ecclesiastical Ethnological Materials from Honduras

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

ACTION: Final rule.


SUMMARY: This final rule amends U.S. Customs and Border Protection
(CBP) regulations to reflect the extension of import restrictions on
certain archaeological materials from Honduras. These restrictions,
which were last extended by CBP Decision (Dec.) 09-05, are due to
expire on March 12, 2014, unless extended. The Assistant Secretary for
Educational and Cultural Affairs, United States Department of State
(Department of State), has determined that conditions continue to
warrant the imposition of import restrictions on the archaeological
materials from Honduras and to add restrictions on certain ethnological
materials. The Designated List of cultural property described in CBP
Dec. 04-08 is revised in this document to reflect the addition of the
ethnological materials. The import restrictions imposed on the
archaeological and ecclesiastical ethnological materials from Honduras
will be in effect for a five year period, and the CBP regulations are
being amended accordingly. These restrictions are being imposed
pursuant to determinations of the 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.

DATES: Effective: March 12, 2014.
