You could be facing a comprehensive regulatory audit by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) if you import high-risk products into the U.S. or have a history of non-compliance issues.
You will know that you are being potentially targeted for audit if you receive a letter from CBP with this subject line: Distribution of Informed Compliance Publications and Other Informative Documents. The letter will include a DVD that contains a number of Informed Compliance Publications (ICP) with valuable information on entry requirements, valuation, tariff classification and country of origin. It is hoped that importers will self-correct by conducting their own internal reviews of importing practices and voluntarily disclosing any discrepancies and deficiencies.
Get started today by calling us at (905) 882-4880 and asking to speak with Brian Rowe, General Manager – Customs Consulting Services. “Most companies need help because they don’t have the staff and expertise required to complete an internal review and make the necessary disclosures,” says Mr. Rowe. “Brokers are not normally copied on this type of correspondence from CBP, so if you receive one of these letters, contact us for guidance prior to communicating with CBP.”
