Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

U.S. Customs and Border Protection Sept. 17 on the proposed extension of the following information collections.

CBP Form 7507 (General Declaration (Outward/Inward) Agriculture, Customs, Immigration, and Public Health) – An aircraft commander or agent must file this form at the time of arrival for all aircraft required to enter pursuant to 19 CFR 122.41, as well as at the time of clearance for all aircraft departing to a foreign area with commercial airport cargo pursuant to 19 CFR 122.72. This form collects information about the flight routing, the numbers of passengers embarking and disembarking, the number of crew members, a declaration of health for the persons on board, and details about disinfecting and sanitizing treatments during the flight.

Transfer of Cargo to a Container Station – Before filing an entry for the purpose of breaking bulk and redelivering cargo, containerized cargo may be moved from the place of unlading to a designated container station or may be received directly at the container station from a bonded carrier after transportation in-bond. This also applies to loose cargo as part of containerized cargo. The container station operator may make a request for the transfer of a container to the station by submitting to CBP an abstract of the manifest for the transferred containers, including the bill of lading number, marks, numbers, description of the contents and consignee.
