Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

U.S. Customs and Border Protection is inviting comments on the proposed extension of the following information collections.

Notice of Detention – CBP may detain merchandise when it has reasonable suspicion that the merchandise 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 merchandise has 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 CBP to facilitate the determination for admissibility or may ask for an extension of time to bring the merchandise into compliance. (comments due by July 3)

CAFTA-DR – To ascertain if imported goods are eligible for preferential tariff treatment under CAFTA-DR, CBP collects a certification that contains information such as the name and contact information of the importer and exporter, information about the producer of the good, a description of the good, the HTSUS tariff classification, and the applicable rule of origin. (comments due by Aug. 4)
