Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Treasury Department’s Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau is accepting comments through Aug. 22 on a proposed rule that would amend its regulations governing the importation of distilled spirits, wine, beer and malt beverages, tobacco products, processed tobacco, and cigarette papers and tubes to clarify and streamline import procedures and support the implementation of the International Trade Data System. The proposed rule would give importers the option of filing import-related data electronically using the partner government agency message set (or as an electronic image when necessary) when filing entry or entry summary data electronically with U.S. Customs and Border Protection as an alternative to the current requirement to submit paper documents to CBP upon importation.
