According to the Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report, the Commercial Customs Operations Advisory Committee has approved a number of recommendations designed to improve the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) ruling submission and issuance process. The recommendations were the result of continued requests from the trade community to improve the timeliness of CBP’s rulings and decisions, as well as the “foreseeable, imminent shifts in U.S. trade and border policy.”
