CBP Publishes “What Every Member of the Trade Community Should Know: Reasonable Care”

US Customs updated their Informed Compliance Publication covering “Reasonable Care.”  The term reasonable care is means that a good faith effort has been made to ensure that all information provided to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Partner Government Agencies (PGAs) is accurate and complete.

This publication covers topics such as merchandise description, classification, and forced labor, which is a focal point of the Trade Facilitation and Trade Enforcement Act of 2015 (TFTEA). There is also an article on the CBP website regarding the newly passed forced labor regulations.  We recommend that this ‘Checklist for Compliance’ and CBP article are read by the stakeholders in your supply chain.

COVID-19 is a global challenge. Keeping our supply chains moving is important for maintaining the health and wellbeing of citizens and businesses. While the Canada - U.S. border is now closed to non-essential traffic, it is still open for trade and commerce. We are committed to doing our part for global supply chains.

We are protecting the health and safety of our employees. They are working from home, except for critical functions that require certain equipment or managing paper/courier flow. In those cases we are following social distancing guidelines.

We are open and available to assist you, and key players in your supply chains. Our dedicated staff are available 24/7 and our brokerage and logistics experts are available to help you make adjustments to your supply chain, if necessary.

We encourage you to check out the government programs available to families, businesses, exporters and importers. And, while respecting the need for social distancing we encourage everyone, including our staff, to reach out and remain connected to family, friends, colleagues and customers.

Stay safe.
