We have learned that instructions have been issued
by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (Customs) at Headquarters
in Washington, DC, to local ports throughout the U.S. to thoroughly
review all quota entries. This review started on June 1,
2003, and, based upon discussions with a Customs' Supervisory
Import Specialist at a West Coast port, the review
will continue throughout the month of June. It is our understanding
that this review of quota entries will focus on country of origin,
classification, and categories for each merchandise subject to
quota. In addition, Customs will be reviewing backup documents
that support a quota entry, such as textile declarations, visas,
and quota statements that are submitted with the quota entries.
The purpose of this review is not clear, but we believe it is
a trade compliance project.
The Law Offices of George R. Tuttle, PC, specialize
in the area of Customs, tariffs and international trade. As part
of our practice, we provide advice to importers with regard to
textile and apparel entries that are subject to quota. If you
wish any additional information on this matter, please email Steve
Spraitzar at email@example.com, or contact him by telephone
at (415) 288-0427.
