U.S. Customs has established 10 Centers of Excellence and Expertise (CEE) as part of their goal to “transform the way U.S. Customs approaches trade operations and works with the international trade community.” U.S. Customs has stated that the CEEs will allow them to increase uniformity of practices in the various ports and to focus on industry-specific issues.
The impending change of focus by U.S. Customs makes it critical for importers to be ready. There is essentially a two fold mission: to facilitate legitimate trade while improving enforcement of the rules and regulations of U.S. Customs. Importers should begin preparing for this new international trade environment now to avoid the issues of noncompliance.
Importers that exercise due diligence in their business practices and take steps to ensure compliance with U.S. Customs and government agency regulations should see their import process made smoother and faster. Importers that don’t act could see longer shipment delays, increased U.S. Customs exams and significant additional costs.
