After further consultation with the international trade community, U.S. Customs and Border
Protection (CBP) has decided to delay the launch of the Test Concerning Manifesting and Entry of Residue found in Instruments of International Traffic (IITs). This test was announced in the Federal Register Notice (FR Doc. 2013-20878) on August 27, 2013.
The test was to commence on November 25th which is 90 days after the publication of the Federal Register Notice. CBP will work to address remaining trade concerns related to this matter and announce a future test date after further consultation with the trade community.
