The final rule on advance electronic cargo notification requirements has been issued at last.

* The final rule on advance electronic cargo notification requirements has been issued at last. Mandated by the Trade Act of 2002 and the Maritime Transportation Security Act of 2002, the rule was published last month in the Federal Register by the Bureau of Customs and Border Protection. The final version includes three major changes to the proposed rule that was published in July: a new requirement for additional data elements for inbound split air shipments; the removal of requirements for advance notice for air shipments of letters and documents, which will be published in a separate Federal Register notice; and a reduction in the time frame for advance notice of outbound rail shipments to two hours prior to arrival at the border. The final rule also clarifies several issues, including liability for accuracy of information and effective dates for different modes of transportation. For details, go to www.cbp.gov.
