Additional Information on Entry Summary Filing Issues Related to Duties on Imports of Steel and 
Aluminum Articles under Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962

On March 22, 2018, in CSMS message # 18-000240, CBP provided entry summary filing instructions for imports of steel and aluminum subject to the March 8 and March 22 Presidential Proclamations on Adjusting Imports of Steel and Aluminum into the United States.

This CSMS message provided the following information on entry summary reject messages:

Importers and filers failing to submit the required Chapter 99 HTS classifications with the entry summary information for imports under the specified Chapter 72, 73, and 76 HTS classifications for the covered countries of origin will receive the following reject messages:
E1 IQ10    LINE SUBJECT TO QUOTA                  
E1 FQ09   QUOTA NOT ALLOWED FOR ENTRY TYPE
E1 FQ05   BANNED IMPORT                          
E1 RF998 TRANSACTION DATA REJECTED               
Note:  Quota is not in effect, but this ACE functionality is being used to validate entry summary transmissions and reject when validations determine the data is missing the required chapter 99 number.

Importers or filers receiving one of the reject messages above, who have researched their classification and dates to confirm the entry summaries were incorrectly rejected, should contact their assigned Client Representative with the results of their review.  

Additional Information

Importers or filers failing to submit the required Chapter 99 HTS classifications with Post Summary Corrections (PSCs) for imports under the specified Chapter 72, 73, and 76 HTS classifications for the covered countries of origin will receive the same reject message specified above. 

Importers or filers receiving one of the reject messages above, who have researched their classification and dates to confirm the Post Summary Corrections were incorrectly rejected, should contact their assigned Client Representative with the results of their review.   

If you contact a client representative about an incorrectly rejected entry summary or PSC, provide the following entry data to the Client Representative:  Entry Number, Line, Country of Origin, HTS, Quantity and Entry Date pursuant to 19 CFR 141.68.  The Client Representatives will forward that information to HQ Quota who will internally review and address the data so that it can be resent without the Chapter 99 numbers.

We have also received numerous questions about which Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS) classifications under HTS 7616.99.51 are subject to the Section 232 duties.  Per the Presidential Proclamations, 7616.99.51.60 and 7616.99.51.70 are subject to the Section 232 duties.
