How is the “BAFTR” different from the official FTR available for free on the Internet?
The Annotated FTR, popularly known as “Bartlett’s Annotated FTR (BAFTR) (1 Jan 2019 edition)” is the only version of the U.S. Foreign Trade Regulations,15 C.F.R. Part 30, and fully updated with the latest amendments. The BAFTR contains the full text of the Foreign Trade Regulations, with features added by the author, including a Table of Contents, footnotes, section histories, appendixes containing government guidance, user aides, and an Index. BAFTRs are sold as soft copies in Microsoft Word, which are emailed to subscribers every time the regulations are amended, plus occasional updates to add footnotes, cases, agency guidance, and Index entries. We do not sell bound copies of the BAFTR, but subscribers who prefer a hard copy may print a copy themselves for inserting in loose-leaf binders or contact FCC for special prices if you would like to receive loose-leaf copies.
The BAFTR will be amended every time the official FTR is amended or a new FTR letter is published, and subscribers will be sent copies of the new edition at no extra cost. The last FTR amendment is of 24 Apr 2018: 83 FR 17749-17751: Foreign Trade Regulations (FTR): Clarification on the Collection and Confidentiality of Kimberley Process Certificates. The best way to ensure you have an up-to-date copy of the FTR is to purchase our annual subscribtion service to the BAFTR.
