Congress has mandated that Customs focus on two key priorities. Congress has ordered Customs to “facilitate legitimate trade” while at the same time to “increase the enforcement of all applicable rules and regulations.” Customs now has a new computer system (ACE) that allows them to use technology to help fulfill these missions.
Customs demands that importers exercise due diligence and reasonable care in all their import transactions. The failure to do so can be very costly, from the expense of Customs’ examinations to the potential for sizable financial penalties. Importers are encouraged to act now before they face the cost of failing to act.
