The Annotated Foreign Trade Regulations (2014), better known as “Bartlett’s Annotated FTR” (the “BAFTR”), contains the complete FTR with all amendments to date. The Table of Contents, footnotes, section histories, and Index were added by the author, with contributions from readers.  On April 3, 2014, FTR Letter No. 8, which is contained in the Appendix of the BAFTR, gave exporters until October 2, 2014, to comply with the regulations that went into effect April 5, 2014. The BAFTR also contains footnotes to delayed implementation sections that take effect in the future, footnotes to errors in the official BAFTR, section histories, cases interpreting the regulations, and practice tips.  The BAFTR is available for purchase in electronic copies (Word and PDF) by annual subscription, and in hard copy (3-ring binder). Subscribers receive all amendments as they are published in the Federal Register in completely revised versions in Word and PDF, sent directly to subscribers in an email attachment.  With an electronic subscription, you will never be without an updated version of the FTR. The BAFTR was amended twice in 2013 and again March, 2014.
