Maritime Cargo Importers Requirements

Wednesday, January 28, 2009

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security confirmed on Jan. 26 that it will not extend the effective date for new information requirements on maritime cargo destined for the United States.

The Importer Security Filing and Additional Carrier Requirements interim final rule went into effect January 26 and requires maritime cargo carriers and importers to submit additional data to U.S. Customs and Border Protection before vessels are permitted entry into the country.

The determination not to postpone the January 26 effective date was made after consideration of the factors set forth in the memorandum from the director of the Office of Management and Budget, “Implementation of Memorandum Concerning Regulatory Review,” dated January 21.

The decision was based in large part on the fact that the rulemaking process was procedurally adequate; that a 75-day public comment period was already provided to respond to the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking; and, that this Interim Final Rule is now subject to an additional six-month public comment period. The January 26 effective date will also allow CBP to work with industry on testing and improving the systems of this important security initiative during the structured review and delayed enforcement period which ends a year later on January 26, 2010.

This additional information will be critical to enhancing the department’s ability to identify and stop dangerous goods from entering our nation, and CBP will continue to welcome input from the regulated industry.
