Customs and Border Protection Provides Guidance on the New Requirements for U.S. and Foreign Goods Returned
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) sent out CSMS 17-000046, dated January 31, 2017 providing additional guidance to the trade on U.S. and Foreign Goods Returned or HTSUS Subheading 9801.00.10 after an amendment issued by the Trade Facilitation and Enforcement Act of 2015 (TFTEA) that expanded 9801.00.10 to include, “all products exported from and returned to the United States, regardless of country of origin.” There is no time limit to file a claim on products of a U.S. origin, but non-U.S. products must be filed within 3 years.
Additional documentation may be required or requested from an importer as this updated provision, “applies to U.S. or foreign articles returned to the United States and entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after April 25, 2016.”
