This message is to provide notification that an enforcement date for updated in-bond
regulations has not been determined at this time.
On January 18, 2019, the Office of Field Operations announced via CSMS 19-000011 that enforcement of the changes to the in-bond regulations that was scheduled to begin on February 6, 2019 was postponed and a new enforcement date would be established. In this announcement, CBP stated that enforcement is not expected prior to March 1, 2019. This was to allow CBP to reschedule the planned consultation and collaboration with the trade through the Commercial Customs Operations Advisory Committee (COAC) In-bond Working Group. This collaboration is currently scheduled to take place in early April. The new enforcement date will be determined and announced at the completion of the review.
