Import Restrictions Imposed on Certain Archaeological and
Ethnological Material From Greece

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 the imposition of import restrictions on
certain archaeological and ethnological material from the Hellenic
Republic (Greece). These restrictions are being imposed pursuant to an
agreement between the United States and Greece that has been entered
into under the authority 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. The final rule amends CBP
regulations by adding Greece to the list of countries for which a
bilateral agreement has been entered into for imposing cultural
property import restrictions. The final rule also contains the
designated list that describes the types of archaeological and
ethnological articles to which the restrictions apply.

DATES: Effective Date: December 1, 2011.
