Posted by Kelsay Calvaruso on 8/26/20 5:00 PM

On August 21, 2020, in Cargo Systems Messaging Service (CSMS) #43729326, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced the extension of the transition period for compliance with the Executive Order on Hong Kong Normalization for 45 days.

The extension is to allow importers sufficient time to comply with the requirements outlined in the Executive Order (EO). During this time, CBP will not take any enforcement actions on goods produced in Hong Kong for purposes of 19 U.S.C. 1304. The marking requirement changes will be effective November 9, 2020.

There are no changes to entry summary filing procedures or in country of origin determinations for duty calculation, but goods produced in Hong Kong will require an origin marking of “China” under the new EO requirements.
