WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Customs won’t meet the Oct. 1 target for issuing final rules requiring freight prenotification.
Speaking at the National Customs Brokers and Freight Forwarders Association of America’s government affairs conference in Washington, Commissioner Robert Bonner said he hopes Customs can present the rules to Congress for review in October and publish the final rules in the Federal Register, hopefully by the end of October.
Since January, Customs has underscored its intent to have the rule in place by Oct. 1, as spelled out in the Trade Act of 2002, which mandated that the government collect advance manifest information by electronic means for all modes of transportation.
