The United States Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) mission statement is to “protect human health and the environment.”

1.Toxic Substance Control Act – The importation of toxic chemical substances is regulated by the EPA. All importations of chemicals require a TSCA statement. The importer is required to certify either that the shipment is subject to TSCA and complies with all applicable rules and orders, or that the chemical shipment is not subject to TSCA and file it with U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

Our firm offers assistance with all TSCA related compliance matters.

2. Vehicles or Vehicle Parts – EPA regulates emission standards produced by a vehicle or engine. When importing a conforming vehicle, an importer must prepare and submit EPA Form 3520-1 (See also DOT Form HS-7).

All nonconforming vehicles less than 25 years old entering the United States must be brought into compliance, exported, or destroyed.

Vehicles over twenty-one (21) years old are exempt from EPA requirements. However, you will still need to obtain and prepare EPA Form 3520-1(Code E) to provide to a CBPOfficer in order to clear your vehicle at the port of entry.

Our firm assists in preparing all necessary EPA forms to ensure compliance with EPA laws and regulations.
