U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) released ten decisions during the week of August 17th in Enforce and Protect Act (EAPA) investigations, regarding the evasion of the antidumping duty orders for wire hangers and wooden furniture.
From the article:
"CBP issued its first final determination in an EAPA investigation on Monday August 14th, finding substantial evidence that wire hangers were imported through evasion," stated the article by U.S. Customs and Border Protection, "Specifically, the hangers were transshipped from China through Thailand to evade the antidumping duties. The authority for investigating under EAPA began last August 2016, and the allegation on transshipment of hangers through Thailand was filed shortly thereafter, in September."
Did you know ……September is the only month with the same number of letters in its name as the number of the month: it is the NINTH month and has NINE letters!
Additionally, the first day of fall is in September. As the weather cools down, it is the perfect time to indulge in some of the most popular fall flavored coffee, tea, and spices! Coffee, tea, and spices are classified in chapter NINE of the Schedule B and HTS Tariff book!!!!
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers hosted a retirement party for CBP narcotics dog "Milky" at the International Falls Port of Entry. Milky started working with his partner, CBP Officer Pete Benedix, in 2012 and they were assigned to the International Falls Port of Entry. In his five-year career, Milky participated in multiple narcotics seizures.
From the article:
"CBP employs dogs as long as they can successfully perform and meet workload requirements. The service career of a detector dog will typically last no longer than eight years. 'Milky' was adopted by his CBP K-9 handler and partner. This ensures that 'Milky' will have a loving and comfortable life for his golden years in retirement."
