Revised Regulation Streamlines “Importer Reimbursement Certification” To Conform With CBP Practice
- Effective October 20, 2021, Commerce revised its regulation (19 C.F.R. 351.402(f)(2)) to include a new requirement that importers certify whether or not the importer has entered into an agreement for the payment or reimbursement of AD/CVD duties by the exporter or producer.
- Such certifications may be filed electronically or by paper, but must be received by CBP prior to liquidation of entries.
What to Know
- Certifications must contain the information necessary to link the certification to the relevant entry or entry line number(s).
- If an importer does not provide its reimbursement certification prior to liquidation, CBP may accept the certification in accordance with its protest procedures unless otherwise directed.
