Manifest Confidentiality

Manifest Confidentiality

Importers and consignees can request that U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) keep your manifest information confidential. Pursuant to the privacy statute, 19 C.F.R. § 103.31 (d) the public is allowed to collect manifest data (e.g., bills of lading) at every port of entry. This information is limited to vessel manifests. Air, rail, and truck manifests are not available to the general public in any form. Companies like panjiva.com, datamyne.com and importgenius.com (to name a few) collect and sell your import data, i.e., the names of importers, suppliers, and manufacturers from vessel manifest data.

How can Diaz Trade Law Help?

Diaz Trade Law can assist you in making a proper request to CBP for confidentiality. The confidential protection is valid for 2 years, thereafter, you have to renew your request. Diaz Trade Law keeps track of the time for you.
