Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

U.S. Customs and Border Protection is accepting comments through May 27 on the proposed extension of the following information collections.

Notice of Detention – CBP may detain merchandise when it has reasonable suspicion that the merchandise may be inadmissible but requires more information to make a positive determination. If CBP decides to detain merchandise, a Notice of Detention is sent to the importer or the importer’s broker/agent no later than five business days from the date of examination stating that merchandise has been detained, the reason for the detention and the anticipated length of the detention. The recipient of this notice may respond by providing CBP with information to facilitate the determination for admissibility or asking for an extension of time to bring the merchandise into compliance.

Entry of Articles for Exhibition – Goods entered for exhibit at fairs, or for constructing, installing or maintaining foreign exhibits at a fair, may be free of duty under 19 USC 1752. To substantiate that imported goods qualify for such treatment, the consignee of the merchandise must provide CBP with information about those goods.
