Extension of Import Restrictions Imposed on Archaeological and
Ethnological Material From Bolivia

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 an extension of import restrictions on
certain archaeological and ethnological material from Bolivia. The
restrictions, which were originally imposed by Treasury Decision (T.D.)
01-86 and last extended by CBP Dec. 06-26, are due to expire on
December 4, 2011. The Acting Assistant Secretary for Educational and
Cultural Affairs, United States Department of State, has determined
that conditions continue to warrant the imposition of import
restrictions. Accordingly, these import restrictions will remain in
effect for an additional 5 years, and the CBP regulations are being
amended to reflect this extension through December 4, 2016. 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.
T.D. 01-86 contains the Designated List of archaeological and
ethnological material from Bolivia to which the restrictions apply.

DATES: Effective Date: December 2, 2011.
