Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced Oct. 25 that all ports of entry are accepting the e214 electronic foreign-trade zone admission application. While paper copies of the CBP Form 214 will still be accepted, all members of the trade community are urged to file e214s via the Automated Broker Interface.

Lesley Couch, who leads Sandler & Travis Trade Advisory Services’ work on duty deferral and FTZs, said this notice is a clarification of one CBP issued earlier this year stating that the e214 was being accepted at 20 CBP field offices, which led some in the FTZ community to believe that only a few ports of entry were accepting e214s.
