Amendments to U.S. Custom and Border Protection (CBP)

In-Bond Regulatory Process

===================================================

 

As you may be aware, CBP has recently announced a new regulation which

stipulates that cargo moving in-Bond in the U.S. must contain a 6-digit level

Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States number ( HTSUS ).

 

CBP will also require very detailed commodity description. CBP will no longer accept general descriptions like electronics or plastic articles but will require the  specific name listed on the commercial invoice.

 

The ruling will take effect on Nov 27, 2017. Failure to comply may result in

delays and penalties, enforced by CBP.

 

We have informed all our overseas agents accordingly and have asked them

to require the number for all in-Bond shipments from their customers.

 

For more information please contact your local CaroTrans representative.

 

Thank you for your continued support.
