Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

U.S. Customs and Border Protection is accepting comments through May 18 on the proposed extension without change of an information collection concerning prior disclosures. The prior disclosure program establishes a method for a potential violator to disclose to CBP that it has committed an error or violation with respect to the legal requirements of entering merchandise into the United States, such as underpaid tariffs or duties or misclassified merchandise. The procedure for making a prior disclosure is set forth in 19 CFR 162.74, which requires that respondents submit information about the merchandise involved, a specification of the false statements or omissions, and what the true and accurate information should be. A valid prior disclosure will entitle the disclosing party to reduced penalties pursuant to 19 USC 1592(c)(4).
