Merchandise not conforming to sample or specifications Customs

Regulations amended

Section 22.33 of the Customs Regulations, relating to the return of merchandise

to customs custody, amended

TREASURY DEPARTMENT,
OFFICE OF THE COMMISSIONER OF CUSTOMS,

Washington, D. C. To Collectors of Customs and Others Concerned:

TITLE 19—CUSTOMS DUTIES

CHAPTER 1-BUREAU OF CUSTOMS

PART 22-DRAWBACK

Under the present regulations merchandise which does not conform to sample or specificatious must be returned to customs custody within 90 days after its release therefrom to be entitled to drawback unless a longer time is specially authorized by the Bureau. It is believed that authority may properly be delegated to collectors of customs to extend this period in cases where conformance to sample or specifications can be determined only by test or use.

Accordingly, section 22.33 (a) of the Customs Regulations is hereby amended to read as follows:

(a) Upon receipt of the drawback entry, the collector shall assign a number thereto, by appropriate notation on all copies, approve the place of deposit of the merchandise specified by the person making the entry or designate another place if that one is not deemed suitable, and return the original to the entrant for presentation with the merchandise to the customs officer at the place of deposit. The merchandise shall be delivered into customs custody at such place within 90 days after the date on which it was originally released from customs custody unless a longer time is specially authorized by the Bureau, or by the collector under the authority of this paragraph. The collector, upon written application, may extend the period in those cases where conformance to sample or specifications can be established (or determined) only by test or use and the test or use cannot reasonably be completed before the expiration of the 90 day period. If the merchandise is to be exported otherwise than by mail, one copy of the entry shall be returned to the entrant, for resubmission to the collector in accordance with paragraph (e). A receipt showing the fact and date of such delivery shall be furnished to the applicant if he requests it. If the report of the receiving officer shows that the merchandise was not returned to customs custody within the time required by law, the drawback shall be denied.
