Clarification on Discontinuation of Most Paper Courtesy Notices of Liquidation
(World Trade Interactive)
U.S. Customs and Border Protection has issued a clarification regarding the discontinuation of paper courtesy notices of liquidation as of Sept. 17.
According to CBP, the Sept. 17 paper courtesy notice includes liquidations through Sept. 30. As such, there will be no printed paper courtesy notices for entry summaries filed via the Automated Broker Interface with a liquidation date of Sept. 30 or later. For entry summaries filed electronically via ABI, CBP will send electronic courtesy notices via ABI to the entry summary filers. For entry summaries not filed through ABI, CBP will continue to mail paper courtesy notices of liquidation to the importers of record.
In addition, CBP deployed the new Courtesy Notice of Liquidation Report via the Automated Commercial Environment portal on Sept. 24. This report includes liquidation information for ACE entry summary types 01 (consumption) and 03 (antidumping/countervailing duty) as well as all Automated Commercial System entry types except 11 (informal) and 12 (informal quota). CBP stresses that this report is not the official notice of liquidation, has no legal effect and does not trigger the protest filing period. Also, CBP is asking users to refrain from running this report until it issues further notification that the data load is complete.
