An importer of record has a responsibility to use “reasonable care” when declaring the classification, valuation, country of origin and use of duty preference programs for merchandise upon entry to the United States. U.S. Customs has a binding ruling program in place where importers can receive a binding determination from U.S. Customs on issues relating to classification, valuation, country of origin and use of duty preference programs, for certainty prior to importation. Diaz Trade Law regularly prepares binding ruling requests to U.S. Customs National Import Specialists in New York and to U.S. Customs Headquarters in Washington, D.C. to assist in providing importers the certainty they need to ensure compliance with U.S. Customs laws.
