What Every Member of the Trade Community Should Know About: Reasonable Care

Read the publication

From trade wars and other remedy measures to new agreements in effect, now is an important time to refresh yourself with what it means to exercise reasonable care with respect to your trade compliance program. Ensure you have updated, proper answers, and controls in place regarding:

  • HTS classification
  • Valuation
  • Country or origin/marking/quota (all of these play critical roles in determination of duties and other trade remedy measures.)
  • Intellectual property rights (There’s a special 301 report that annual reviews IP rights protection and enforcement.)
  • Forced labor (New Withhold Release Orders issued as of early October 2020)
  • Partner government agency requirements to import product (especially during this COVID-19 environment)

U.S. Customs and Border Protection: Priority Trade Initiatives & Trade Remedy Resources

Priority Trade Issues (PTIs) represent high-risk areas that can cause significant revenue loss, harm the U.S. economy, or threaten the health and safety of the American people. They drive risk-informed investment of CBP resources and enforcement and facilitation efforts, including the selection of audit candidates, special enforcement operations, outreach, and regulatory initiatives. CBP trade administers trade policy by collecting duties and enforcing remedies to create a level playing field for American businesses.
