CBP Announces Self-Certification Requirement for Certain Diamonds

Posted by Timothy Miller on 3/1/24 5:38 PM

In a Cargo Systems Messaging Service (CSMS) bulletin published on February 29, 2024, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced the requirements for self-certification statements on imports of certain types of diamonds.

The self-certification statements will need to be uploaded to the Automated Commercial Environment (ACE) Document Image System (DIS) for entries and Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ). This statement will require importers to confirm that the diamonds in the shipment were “not mined, extracted, produced, or manufactured wholly or in part in the Russian Federation.” The CSMS also provides the criteria for the self-certification statement, instructions for uploading the statement to DIS, and a link to a list of affected tariff subheadings.

This self-certification requirement goes into effect on March 1, 2024.

CSMS # 59635420 can be found here:
