|Fees For Certain CBP Services to Increase|
Effective April 1, 2007 U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is increasing the user fees for certain customs services by 10 percent (as authorized) so that they more accurately reflect the actual costs of providing the services for which they are charged.
|AMS Participants and Port Listing|
CBP is now posting a list of participants and their associated ports in the Automated Manifest Systems for air and rail. All sea participants are required to be automated and therefore a detailed listing is no longer necessary.
| - ||Industry Partnership Programs|
The goal of IPP is to engage the trade community in a cooperative relationship with the CBP in the war on drugs and terrorism.
|Trade Act of 2002 - Advance Electronic Information|
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) published the final Trade Act regulations in the Federal Register on December 5, 2003. The rules require advance transmission of electronic cargo information to CBP for both arriving and departing cargo and provide for various effective dates depending upon the mode of transportation. CBP has consolidated the implementation strategy of the 24-hour rule and the implementation strategy of the Trade Act. The guidance set forth below encompasses past and current 24-hour rule guidance as well as Trade Act guidance.
