Mexican Export Licenses Required for Imports of Sugar from Mexico as of Feb. 17
U.S. Customs and Border Protection is reminding importers and customs brokers that as of Feb. 17 importers are required to submit Mexican export licenses as a condition of entry for consumption entries of imports of sugar from Mexico. Any entries of Mexican sugar that are released without the submission of the export license are subject to redelivery. Failure to redeliver shipments at CBP’s request will result in the imposition of liquidated damages.
Message CSMS 15-000065 (see attached) provides instructions on how to submit a copy of the export license via email to the Document Imaging System and how to report the license number and the associated license type code when filing entry/entry summary data.
