Customs Brokerage/Importing Into the U.S.
When goods are imported into the United States, they are subject to certain formalities involving U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Goods imported are required to be “entered”, that is declared to Customs and are subject to detention and examination by Customs to ensure compliance with all laws and regulations enforced or administered by Customs and Border Protection. Customs assists in the administration of the laws and regulations on behalf of many Federal agencies such as the Food and Drug Administration, Department of Agriculture, Department of Transportation, EPA, International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce and many others.
