CBP modifies post-summary correction claims process

CBP modifies post-summary correction claims process

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) today released for publication in the Federal Register a general notice announcing modifications to a customs automation program regarding post-summary correction claims made to entry summaries that are filed in the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE).

CBP in December 2016 announced a plan to liberalize the rules concerning post-summary correction claims. Yet, that notice imposes burdens on importers in the form of a restriction and a prohibition.

Today’s notice [PDF 207 KB] republishes the December 2016 guidance but also removes certain restrictions or limitations imposed on importers. 

  • One of the changes relates to the requirement of submitting additional duties, fees and taxes within three business days of filing a post-summary collection claim. This is removed by today’s notice.
  • The second change removes a rule that prohibits importers from filing any additional post-summary correction claims until additional duties, fees, and taxes are deposited.

The changes made by today’s CBP notice are effective January 14, 2017.
