Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

U.S. Customs and Border Protection at the port of San Francisco has announced new entry requirements for fresh garlic from China, which is subject to antidumping duties of up to $4.71 per kilogram. CBP states that due to discrepancies found with entry documents, concerns with bond sufficiency and high financial risk associated with the entry of this product, effective June 9 importers and brokers must submit the entry summary document at the time of entry with estimated duties attached or a valid scheduled statement date for payment for review prior to release of merchandise. CBP notes that import specialists may require the submission of a supplemental single transaction bond to cover AD duties should an entry be filed with only a continuous bond.
