U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will utilize Customs Form 4647 to demand redelivery of merchandise, or advise an importer that the country of origin marking on their product is incorrect. Once the notice is received, the importer has 30 days to return merchandise to CBP custody, or hold the merchandise until CBP advises it can be released. If the importer does not comply, it can be assessed liquidated damages equal to the value of the merchandise (up to three times the value of for restricted/prohibited merchandise, or alcoholic beverages). Importers have the right to file a Protest within 180 days of the demand to contest CBP’s findings.
