Detention, Export, Entry Information Collections Under Review by CBP
U.S. Customs and Border Protection is accepting comments through Aug. 28 on the proposed extension without change of the following information collections.
Notice of Detention – CBP may detain goods when it has reasonable suspicion that the goods 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 goods have been detained, the reason for the detention, and the anticipated length of the detention. The recipient of this notice may respond by providing information to facilitate the determination for admissibility or may ask for an extension of time to bring the goods into compliance.
CBP Form 3495, Application for Exportation of Articles Under Special Bond – This form is used by importers to notify CBP that they intend to export goods that were subject to a duty exemption based on a temporary stay in the U.S. It also serves as a permit to export to satisfy the importer’s obligation to export the same goods and thereby get a duty exemption.
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. To substantiate that goods qualify for such treatment the consignee must provide information about the imported goods to CBP.
