Under the provisions of the Act, merchandise for which adequate PN has not been provided cannot move to the importer's premises. While the use of the import bond for CBP-directed examinations under its own legal authority does occur, it cannot be used for movement of merchandise with inadequate PN to the importer’s premises. A type 2 custodial bond must be used to guarantee the movement of the cargo to a secure facility. The secure facility's bond would be acceptable.
How does merchandise move to the importer’s premises for examination? Can the filer or holding facility use its type 2 bond if the truck which brought the merchandise to the border isn’t bonded?
