U.S. CBP Updates: Section 321 Truck Manifest Enforcement

U.S. CBP Updates: Section 321 Truck Manifest Enforcement

On January 1, 2019, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) began enforcing the requirements for carriers to file advanced manifests for articles that fall under Section 321 clearance procedures (defined as valued below the De minimus amount of $800). Carriers that make no attempt to comply are now eligible for penalties ranging from $5,000 for a first offense to $10,000 for additional offenses. 

Due to a technical issue with the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE), carriers that move more than 5,000 of these Section 321 shipments and are currently unable to file the electronic manifest will not be actioned against.  

However, carriers that move less than 5,000 shipments are able to file the advanced manifest and will be pursued for non-compliance. A correction to the issue with ACE is expected by April 1, 2019.
