On Tuesday, November 17, 2020, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) released in Cargo System Messaging Service (CSMS) Message 44890398 updated information regarding the processing of Post Summary Corrections (PSCs). In the notice, CBP notes that they aim to prioritize processing of PSCs filed with accelerated liquidation requests over PSCs submitted without accelerated liquidation requests.
CBP will be updating their Business Rules and Process Document with this information. CBP is recommending that if you would like to check the status of a PSC that was transmitted with an accelerated liquidation request, you should allow at least 90 days from the date of submission before reaching out.
PSCs submitted without accelerated liquidation requests may take up to 314 days, which is the standard liquidation cycle for a customs entry.
As a result of the Section 301 exclusions, CBP has received thousands of PSCs, which has created a significant backlog in processing for their team. Noatum’s standard practice is to submit PSCs with accelerated liquidation requests, so this week’s CSMS message is very welcomed news.
