Enforcement to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and the Bureau 
of Customs and Border Protection to U.S. Customs and Border Protection

AGENCY: Office of the Secretary, DHS.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This Notice informs the public that the Department of Homeland 
Security (DHS) has changed the name of the Bureau of Immigration and 
Customs Enforcement to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), 
and the name of the Bureau of Customs and Border Protection to U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

EFFECTIVE DATES: This Notice is effective March 31, 2007.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For CBP: Harold M. Singer, Director 
for the Regulations and Disclosure Law Division, Office of 
International Trade (202) 572-8700; for ICE:

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) 
was established on January 24, 2003, pursuant to the Homeland Security 
Act of 2002, Public Law 107-296 (HSA). DHS is the result of the 
reorganization of 22 federal agencies, including the former Immigration 
and Naturalization Service (INS) from the Department of Justice and the 
U.S. Customs Service (Customs Service) from the Department of the 
Treasury. Pursuant to sections 442 and 542 of the HSA, INS and the 
Customs Service were transferred to DHS effective March 1, 2003, and 
reorganized to become the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services 
(USCIS), the Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and 
the Bureau of Customs and Border Protection (CBP).
    DHS has decided to change the name of these components from the 
Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement to U.S. Immigration and 
Customs Enforcement (ICE), and the Bureau of Customs and Border 
Protection to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). Pursuant to 
section 872(a)(2) of the HSA (6 U.S.C. 452(a)(2)), DHS is required to 
provide notice of the name change to Congress no later than 60 days 
before the change will be effective. DHS notified Congress on January 
18, 2007.
    This Notice informs the public that all official documents and 
future regulatory actions involving the Bureau of Immigration and 
Customs Enforcement now will identify U.S. Immigration and Customs 
Enforcement (ICE) as the applicable DHS component, and all references 
to the Bureau of Customs and Border Protection in existing documents 
and actions henceforth shall be construed as references to U.S. Customs 
and Border Protection (CBP).

    Dated: April 17, 2007.
Mary Kate Whalen,
Deputy Associate General Counsel for Regulatory Affairs, Office of the 
General Counsel.
