NCBFAA supports electronic CBP liquidation notices

The National Customs Brokers and Forwarders Association of America said it supports the proposal by U.S. Customs and Border Protection to electronically publish notices of liquidation, along with suspensions and extensions of liquidations.

   The National Customs Brokers and Forwarders Association of America (NCBFAA) said it supports the proposal by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to electronically publish notices of liquidation, along with suspensions and extensions of liquidations.
   The industry group said the transition is in line with the agency’s development of the Automated Commercial Environment and should be beneficial to both CBP and the trade. Liquidation information is expected to be made available through the CBP website.
   NCBFAA asked, however, that the proposed regulation clearly specify the liquidation link be visible on CBP’s home page, so “it is indeed conspicuous and remains so without regard to current and future website design. The trade should not have to search the website to locate the liquidation link.”
   Under the proposed rule, liquidation information that’s posted on the CBP website will be available for at least 15 months.
   “This commitment is not echoed in the draft regulations,” NCBFAA said. “This is critical for issues relating to the timeliness of claims and jurisdiction in the Court of International Trade. Similarly, the process for requesting access to notices that are no longer available on the website should be codified in the regulations.”
   NCBFAA also said electronic liquidation notices should limit any delays with CBP posting them.
   “There is no longer a basis for delayed notification and the regulation should be revised to provide that notice of liquidation for these entries will be posted on the date of liquidation. There is no basis to distinguish these entries which are manually liquidated,” the group said.
