Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

U.S. Customs and Border Protection has announced the third and final phase of the transition of operational trade functions from ports of entry to two Centers of Excellence and Expertise.

CEEs were established to increase uniformity of practices across ports of entry, facilitate the timely resolution of trade compliance issues nationwide, and further strengthen CBP knowledge of key industry practices.

Effective June 29, the directors of the Petroleum, Natural Gas and Minerals CEE and the Pharmaceuticals, Health and Chemicals CEE will assume trade authority for post-release trade processes of entry summaries for the respective industry tariff lines filed in the following ports of entry under the field offices indicated. CBP states that entry summary filing procedures and document submission processes will remain the same for brokers and importers.
