FTR Letter No. 4April 23, 2009
This letter further clarifies the Foreign Trade Regulations (FTR) Letter
No. 1 issued
In reviewing this issue with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, we have determined that the Trade Act deadlines do not apply to shipments within the U.S. Customs Territory, which include Puerto Rico. Therefore, Puerto Rico is exempt from the filing time frames in the FTR. After further consultation with the trade community servicing Puerto Rico, the proof of filing citation, postdeparture filing citation, or exemption citation must be presented to the carrier by the time the shipment arrives at the port of unloading for shipments between the United Sates and Puerto Rico.
This exemption from the required filing of advanced cargo information applies only to shipments between the United States and Puerto Rico. Shipments from the United States or Puerto Rico to the U.S. Virgin Islands or a foreign country are not exempt and must follow the required filing time frames as specified in Section 30.4(b)(2). The U.S. Virgin Islands is not a part of the U.S. Customs Territory.
Every effort must be made by the USPPI and authorized agents to comply with these requirements. If you have questions concerning these requirements, please contact the U.S. Census Bureau, Regulations, Outreach, and Education Branch, Foreign Trade Division, on 800-549-0595, option 3, or by email using firstname.lastname@example.org.
