When to File a Protest with U.S. Customs?

If U.S. Customs takes action you do not agree with in response to your CBP Form 29 response, Importers have the right to file a Protest with U.S. Customs. Your timeframe to respond is within 180 days of liquidation. The purpose of a Protest is to contest final U.S. Customs decisions relating to the classification, valuation, country of origin, and duty preference program used for imported merchandise under section 514 of the Tariff Act of 1930. On the Protest form, importers have the right to request further review, this is important as you’ll want another department within Customs to review your Protest should the port want to deny it.
