§ 1.1 Customs collection districts and ports.
(a) A customs collection district is the geographical area under the customs jurisdiction of a collector of customs.
(b) The terms "port" and "port of entry," as used in the regulations in this part, refer to any place designated by Executive order of the President,1 by order of the Secretary of the Treasury, or by act of Congress, at which a customs officer is assigned with author
"The President is authorized from time to time, as the exigencies of the service may require, to rearrange, by consolidation or otherwise, the several customs-collection districts and to discontinue ports of entry by abolishing the same or establishing others in their stead: Provided, That the whole number of customs-collection districts, ports of entry, or either of them, shall at no time be made to exceed those established and authorized as on August 1, 1914, except as the same may thereafter be provided by law (Sec. 1, 38 Stat. 623, as amended; 19 U. S. C. 2) By virtue of the authority vested in him by section 1 of the act of August 8, 1950 (64 Stat. 419), the President, by Executive Order 10289, dated September 17, 1951 (3 CFR, 1951 Supp., p. 469), delegated to the Secretary of the Treasury the authority theretofore vested in the President by section 1 of the act of August 1, 1914, as amended (19 U. 8. C. 2), (1) to rearrange, by consolidation or otherwise, the several customs-collection districts, (2) to discontinue ports of entry by abolishing the same and establishing others in their stead, and (3) to change from time to time the location of the headquarters in any customs-collection district as the needs of the service may require.
ity to accept entries of merchandise, to collect duties, and to enforce the various provisions of the customs and navigation laws.
(c) There are 46 customs collection districts of the United States." The following is an alphabetical list of customs collection districts with their numbers and with a list of the ports in each district. The first-named port in each district (in capital letters) is the headquarters port, and the asterisk preceding the name of a port indicates that marine documents may be issued at such port. The districts and ports were created by the President's message of March 3, 1913, by which he communicated to Congress his reorganization of the Customs Service pursuant to the act of August 24, 1912 (Secs. 1, 2, 3, 44 Stat. 1381, as amended, 1382; 5 U. S. C. 281–281b), except that certain changes in such organization have been made by subsequent orders of the President or the Secretary of the Treasury. In the following list the orders issued since March 3, 1913, that affect existing districts or ports are cited in parentheses following the name of the district or port affected.
This does not include the customs colleotion district of the Virgin Islands which, although under the jurisdiction of the Secretary of the Treasury, has its own customs laws. (See sec. 36, 49 Stat. 1816; 48 U. S. C. 14061)
In addition to the customs collection districts listed which are within the customs territory of the United States, there is the customs collection district of the Virgin Islands (No. 51), the headquarters port of which is Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, and the subports of which are Cruz Bay, Coral Bay, Christiannsted, and Frederiksted.
'Marine documents may be issued at Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas, headquarters port of the customs collection district of the Virgin Islands (No. 51); at Washington, N.C., a customs station in the customs collection district of North Carolina (No. 15); at Biloxi, Miss., a customs station in the customs collection district of Mobile (No. 19); and at Houma, La., a customs station in the customs collection district of New Orleans (No. 20). Marine documents may also be issued at the Commercial Port of Guam, under the supervision of the collector of customs at Honolulu, Hawaii. Although the status of the port of Newark, N.J., was changed by T.D. 53786 to provide that it shall be operated as an integral part of the port of New York, N.Y., in the Customs Collection District of New York (No. 10), marine documents may continue to be issued at that port.
