When United States Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”) believes that there should be a change in classification or increase in duty they are required to issue what is called a “Notice of Action” – Customs Form 29. A notice of action signifies CBP’s intentions to change the way current and possibly future shipments will be treated. The notice will provide the importer with two possible Customs actions; “Action Taken” or “Action Proposed.”

  1. Action Taken – Once CBP indicates “Action Taken,” any increase in duties can only be addressed via protest or 520 claim.
  2. Action Proposed – When CBP indicates Action Proposed, the importer is given 20 days to convince CBP that the increase or change in classification is unfounded.

Our firm addresses CBP’s Notice of Action to clarify all issues and prevent unfavorable decisions.
