To complete the process of clearing your vehicle through customs, you will need any document covering the vehicle, including the carrier's original bill of lading, the bill of
sale and foreign registration. In addition, you should consult your local automobile club or an international automobile federation about obtaining the international
Registration Marker - a permit that must be displayed on all imported cars.

Safety and Emission Standards
An auto manufactured abroad may not be in compliance with U.S. safety or emission standards. Therefore, you will be required to produce the foreign manufacturer's
statements verifying that the vehicle conforms with U.S. safety and emission control standards. U.S. emission requirements apply to all 1968 and later model year
gasoline-fueled vehicles, 1975 and later model year diesel-fueled vehicles, and motorcycles manufactured after December 31,1977. Since safety and emission
requirements sometimes change over the years, it is recommended that you contact one of the resources below for the most up-to-date regulations applying to your vehicle.

Below are some other important tips for clearing a vehicle through customs:

1. The U.S. Department of Agriculture required that all imported cars are free from foreign soil. Consequently, you must have your car steam- sprayed or cleaned thoroughly
before shipping.

2. Do not ship personal belongings in your vehicle.

3. Any modifications that must be made to a vehicle imported into the United States is based on the price paid or the invoice price. Contact your local customs office for the
current duty rate. A returning U.S. resident (one returning from travel, work or study) may apply his or her $400.00 customs exemption (as well as the exemptions of
accompanying family members) toward the value of the vehicle if it meets the following requirements:

The vehicle accompanies you on your return to the States. It is imported for personal use. The vehicle was purchased during your stay outside the United States.
After this exemption has been applied, the next $1,000.00 of the vehicle's value is dutiable at a flat rate of 10% and the remainder is dutiable at the regular rate.
4. You are entitled to import a foreign-made car if you are:

A U.S. citizen employed abroad, or a government employee returning from temporary duty or on voluntary leave. These citizens may import a foreign-made car free of duty
provided they claim non-resident status, enter the United States for only a short visit and export the vehicle when they leave the States.
A civilian or military employee of the U.S. government returning to the United States at the end of an assignment of more than 140 days may include a conforming vehicle
among their duty-free personal and household goods provided the auto was purchased abroad and was in the owner's possession prior to his departure to the United
States. Navy personnel serving a U.S. vessel may be entitled to the free entry exemption after an intended overseas deployment of at least 120 days.
5. A vehicle may be imported by a non-resident if the vehicle is for personal use and is imported in conjunction with the owner's arrival. Vehicles conforming to these
restrictions may remain in the United States indefinitely. If the conforming vehicle was imported under duty free exemptions, it is dutiable if sold within one year of importation.
This duty must be paid before the sale is completed. Non-conforming vehicles may not be sold in the United States and must be exported within one year.

6. A car imported by a non-resident for purposes other than personal, such as racing, repair or as a sample for taking orders, is subject to specific customs regulations.
Check with your local customs office for guidelines pertaining to unusual situations and exceptions.

Federal Tax
Some imported automobiles are subject to the "Gas Guzzler Tax" stipulated in section 4064 of the Internal Revenue Code. Liability for the tax is the responsibility of the
individual importing the vehicle and the tax rate is determined by the EPA's fuel economy rating. (This rating may differ from the fuel economy rating cited by the manufacturer).
Additionally, before registering and titling your vehicle, many states require proof that you have paid the "Gas Guzzlers Tax" in cases where it is applicable. For information on
the "Gas Guzzlers Tax" contact:

Internal Revenue Service

1111 Constitution Avenue N.W.
Washington, D.C. 20224, U.S.A.
Phone: (202) 622-3130
Fax: (202) 622-4524

You may also contact the ITS for information on determining fuel economy rates. Ask for section 4064 of the Code, Revenue Procedure 86-9,1986-1 Cumulative Bulletin 530,
Revenue Procedure 87-10,1987-4 Internal Revenue Bulletin 29, and Revenue Ruling 86-20,1986-1 C.B. 319.

It should be evident from the foregoing information that importing a vehicle is difficult. An individual may not be able to import one if it is not in compliance with EPA and DOT
requirements, unless a company approved by the entities is the importer of record. EPA and DOT should be contacted before you attempt to bring your vehicle into the United
States.

Importing a Motor Vehicle
Imported motor vehicles are subject to safety standards under the Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1966, revised under the Imported Vehicle Safety Compliance Act of 1988; to
bumper standards under the Motor Vehicle Information and Cost Savings Act of 1972, which became effective in 1978; and to air pollution control standards under the Clean
Air Act of 1968, as amended in 1977, and 1990.  (for more details

Importing a non-U.S. version / non conforming vehicle or car into the U.S.
What is the process for importing a non-U.S. version / nonconforming vehicle or car into the U.S.?
The Federal agencies that regulate the importation of non U.S. version or nonconforming vehicles are the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Department of
Transportation (DOT), U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) - See IRS Federal "Gas-Guzzler" Tax. These agencies do not
encourage the importation of non U.S. version or nonconforming vehicles for on-road use because converting a nonconforming vehicle is usually very expensive, and
sometimes impossible or impractical. It is possible that a car will conform to one agency's requirements but not another's.

U.S. Customs rules for car exports.

There has been an increase in the number of title and document rejections by Customs at the US ports of discharge. In an effort to assist our customers in avoiding
rejections, delays and rework and expedite clearance of your cargo, we would like to offer the following review of reasons by Port of Load.

Each of the items listed below represent a common reason for US CBP to reject the paperwork; your steadfast attention concerning these items will reduce the frequency of
Customs rejections and result in your cargo loading in a more efficient and timely manner.


COMMON REASONS FOR REJECTIONS IN NEW YORK.
INSUFFICIENT COPIES Customs requires 8 copies of documentation and Titles or certificates of ownership. The front and back of the document Title documents must be
copies on all 8 sets. Terminal personnel and US Customs will not make copies.

PHYSICAL ADDRESS OF SHIPPER AND CONSIGNEE. Shippers and Consignee fields must contain a physical address. P.O. boxes are not authorized; additionally use “BP”
addresses for overseas with caution, as they may result in rejections by USCBP.

MISSING PROOF OF PAYMENT. Cargo clearing on a Certificate of Origin and cargo 2010-2012 state titled must have a Bill of Sale; which must include: Name of Dealership,
Year of Vehicle, Make of Vehicle, Model of Vehicle and VIN. The documents must also state that the vehicle is paid full or indicate a zero balance, it must be an original and it
is recommended that it be notarized.

VESSEL/VOYAGE. Vessel/Voyage fields on the D/R must show a vessel name and voyage; TBA is not authorized. Paperwork must be delivered to Customs 72 hours prior to
the arrival of the vessel indicated on the D/R.

ILLEGIBLE D/R Submitted D/R must be legible. If you send the D/R to the trucker by fax, we recommend that you confirm that their received copy is legible and complete. Many
faxed copies of D/Rs are rejected because the fax has cut off or distorted part of the information off or the quality of the fax is poor.

AES. All cargo must have AES filing and ITN; the NOEEI 30.37(a) statement is no longer accepted by USCBP.

LIEN RELEASE. NY Customs requires the lien release to be stamped or provided on letterhead. It is recommended that a lien release be provided on letterhead. Failure to
submit lien release may result in a rejection of the documentation.



COMMON REASONS FOR REJECTIONS IN BALTIMORE.
LIEN RELEASE. Delivery of documentation without proper lien release may result in a rejection by USCBP.

MISSING PROOF OF PAYMENT. Cargo clearing on a Certificate of Origin must have a Bill of Sale which includes: Name of Dealership, Year of Vehicle, Make of Vehicle, Model
of Vehicle and VIN. It must also state that the vehicle is paid full or indicate a zero balance. The BOS must be an original and recommend that it be notarized.



COMMON REASONS FOR REJECTIONS IN JACKSONVILLE.
OWNER OF THE VEHICLE IS NOT THE SHIPPER OR CONSIGNEE. The owner on the title must be the declared shipper or the consignee on the Dock Receipt. If the
information is not consistent USCBP will reject the documents.

TITLES WHICH ARE NOT REASSIGNED. Many titles are delivered indicating that the unit has been sold but the purchaser is not filled out on the paperwork, the title must be
reassigned.

POWER OF ATTORNEY REQUIRED. If the owner on the title is the consignee a power of attorney (POA) is required from the consignee to the shipper giving them permission
to ship the cargo. POA must consist of the original and notarized, submission of only a notarized copy will result in a rejection.

MISSING FORWARDING AGENT. All D/Rs for JAX must have a forwarding agent.

ILLEGIBLE D/R Submitted D/R must be legible. If you send the D/R to the trucker by fax, we recommend that you confirm that their received copy is legible and complete. Many
faxed copies of D/Rs are rejected because the fax has cut off or distorted part of the information off or the quality of the fax is poor.


COMMON REASONS FOR REJECTIONS IN SAVANNAH.
INVALID AES. A common cause for rejection is use of the port code on the AES filing; the correct code 1703.

POWER OF ATTORNEY REQUIRED. If the owner on the title is not in AES filing a power of attorney (POA) is required from the owner to the shipper giving them permission to
ship the cargo. POA must consist of the original and notarized, submission of only a notarized copy will result in a rejection.

INCOMPLETE COPIES. Savannah requires four complete copies, including the front and back of the documents and LOI. USCBP will not make copies they will reject the
submission.

For all ports of export please refrain from using color copies of Titles and other official documents.

When you receive the rejection package be sure to send the complete package back to the address indicated on the coversheet. Send rejects for New York, Baltimore and
Jacksonville to the port address provided. The only rejection paperwork that should be returned to booked carrier is for Savannah.

If the terminal receive a lien release but not the paperwork (a common practice) this will cause unnecessary delays and the potential for paperwork to get lost or misplaced.
Returning rejections to the wrong address will delay the clearance.
Customs seizing Range Rover Defenders  or  (click here)  (www.flickr.com/photos/cbpphotos/sets/72157633218266967)


Illegally Imported and Unsafe Land Rover Defender Destroyed in Baltimore
BALTIMORE—A Land Rover Defender, which U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers seized at the Baltimore seaport April 16 as an illegal and unsafe import, was
destroyed in spectacular fashion at an undisclosed Maryland salvage yard Tuesday.

This Defender is one of dozens stopped in recent months at ports of entry in Philadelphia, Norfolk, Va., Charleston, S.C., Savannah, Ga., Jacksonville, Fla., Houston and
Tacoma, Wa., that violated federal highway safety standards, including the standards requiring airbags.

A portion of these illegal shipments will require destruction, as their Vehicle Identification Number (VINs) was intentionally altered and/or manipulated.

All shipments were targeted for examination by CBP's Commercial Targeting and Analysis Center (CTAC) in Washington, D.C. The CTAC combines resources and staff from
several government agencies, including National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Environment Protection Agency (EPA), to protect the American public
from harm caused by unsafe imported products.

These Land Rover Defenders were represented on import entry documents as being 25 years of age or older, but may actually be newer vehicles whose Vehicle Identification
Numbers (VIN) have been fraudulently altered.

These fraudulent actions are intended to take advantage of the exemptions within the statutes and regulations administered by NHTSA and EPA that allow older,
nonconforming vehicles to be imported without restriction (NHTSA - 25 years old and EPA - 21 years old).

The overseas value for this model of vehicle is approximately $25,000. However, the resale value in the U.S. can run as much as $150,000 per vehicle depending on its
model year and condition. Because these vehicles cannot be lawfully imported into the U.S. unless they are at least 25 years old, their rarity also inflates the stateside
purchase price.

"Ensuring the safety of imported products is a top priority for CBP," said Allen Gina, CBP's assistant commissioner for international trade. "The concerted targeting efforts of
CTAC and the vigilance of CBP officers and import specialists at our ports of entry will help ensure that unsafe vehicles from overseas markets do not reach our roadways."

Prospective buyers of imported vehicles can confirm the validity of the vehicle by checking the VIN in a vehicle history report.

Buyers who suspect that a vehicle is being illegally imported are encouraged to report suspected trade violations. All information submitted to CBP is voluntary and
confidential. To report a possible trade violation, please visit eAllegations.

For additional information on the CTAC and import safety, please visit CBP.gov/Trade, and click on the "Priority Trade Issues" tab.

NEWARK, New Jersey—U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) destroyed an illegally imported and unsafe Mini Cooper Thursday at a salvage yard in New Jersey
following a recent seizure at the Newark Seaport. CBP captured photos,b-roll and principal sound bites for use by news media.

This Mini is just one of dozens of vehicles intercepted at ports of entry across the U.S, including ports in Baltimore, Philadelphia, Norfolk, Virginia, Charleston, South Carolina,
Savannah, Georgia, Jacksonville, Florida, Houston and Tacoma, Washington.

Over the past year, CBP has increased targeting and inspections of suspect imported vehicles, specifically Minis and Land Rover Defenders, as part of Operation Atlantic, a
new trans-Atlantic partnership between U.S. and U.K. regulatory and law enforcement officials.

“Intercepting illegal and unsafe imports is a top priority for CBP,” said Brenda Smith, CBP’s assistant commissioner for International Trade. “Through Operation Atlantic, we
are stopping illegally imported, unsafe vehicles from driving on our roadways, and at the same time, partnering with our colleagues in the UK to stop this criminal activity at its
source.”

Launched in March 2014 by CBP’s Commercial Targeting and Analysis Center, U.S. and U.K. officials are working together to identify illegal shipments of vehicles at ports of
entry across the U.S. and U.K. Following inspections of more than 500 vehicles, the operation has led to several criminal investigations in both countries.

CBP officials hosted their U.K. law enforcement counterparts at headquarters in Washington, D.C., and in Baltimore and Newark to discuss expanding the operation.  Gordon
Roberts, detective chief inspector of the U.K. Vehicle Crime Intelligence Service, stated that “Operation Atlantic is one of the more important initiatives for our office, as it clearly
demonstrates the significance and benefits of multilateral information exchanges in the enforcement of the laws of both our countries.”

These illegal vehicles are represented on import entry documents as being 25 years or older, but may be newer, illegally reconfigured vehicles, or even reconstructed from
stolen vehicle parts. The vehicle identification numbers (VIN) have been fraudulently altered.  These fraudulent actions attempt to use as cover exemptions within the statutes
and regulations administered by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Environmental Protection Agency that allow older vehicles to be imported without
restriction.

“Safety is the U.S. Department of Transportation’s top priority and we are committed to preventing the illegal importation of vehicles and exposing their potential safety risks,”
said Nancy Lewis, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration associate administrator for enforcement. “Along with our partners at CBP and CTAC, we’ll remain diligent in
our enforcement efforts to protect the driving public.”

CBP officers from the New York Field Office working at the Newark Seaport seized the Mini Cooper June 9 because the VIN on the vehicle was fraudulent. “We will continue to
work with our partners at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and in the United Kingdom to prevent the illegal import of vehicles that place the health and safety
of the American public at risk, “said Leon Hayward, assistant director of field operations for trade cargo security at CBP’s New York Field Office.

CBP encourages buyers who suspect fraudulent activity to report the suspected trade violations via CBP’s e-Allegations website. All information submitted is voluntary and
confidential.

Still and video images along with sound bites from the principal officials is available via CBP’s Flickr page and on CBP’s video imagery page on DVIDs, a DoD hosted video
distribution site.


In 2013, CBP seized and destroyed an illegally imported Land Rover Defender that did not meet federal safety standards and had a fraudulent VIN, which increased the public’
s awareness about illegal vehicle imports and served as a catalyst for Operation Atlantic.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland Security charged with the management, control and protection of our
nation’s borders at and between the official ports of entry. CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the country while enforcing hundreds of U.S.
laws.
