Final Administrative Determinations

Parties to an Enforce and Protect Act (EAPA) investigation have the right to request an administrative review of an initial determination. This is provided for under 19 CFR Part 165, Subpart D. This section sets forth the basic requirements for requesting an administrative review of an initial determination. For the complete requirements, please consult the regulations at 19 CFR Part 165.41.

Requests for administrative review of an initial EAPA determination as to evasion must be submitted electronically to the Office of Trade, Regulations and Rulings (OT/RR). U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has created a separate email box for the submission of requests for administrative review of an initial EAPA determination. All requests for administrative review must be submitted to the following email box: eapafad@cbp.dhs.gov. Questions regarding the submission process may also be submitted to eapafad@cbp.dhs.gov. If you do not receive a response within two business days, please contact 202-325-0100.

After review of any complete and timely request(s) for administrative review of an initial determination, OT/RR will issue a Final Administrative Determination. The administrative review will be completed within 60 business days of the date of commencement of the review.
