When a shipment reaches the first point of entry, the importer of record (i.e., the owner, purchaser) designates a licensed customs broker to file a customs entry for the goods with the port director.
Imported goods are not legally entered until after the shipment has arrived within the port of entry, delivery of the merchandise has been authorized by Customs Border Protection, and estimated duties have been paid. It is the importer of record’s responsibility to arrange for examination and release of the goods.
