Importer Sanctions

If an importer is placed on sanction because of a delinquent bill, that importer must file entry summary with payment of estimated duties, taxes, and fees attached before U.S Customs and Border Protection will release future entries. When a sanction occurs, the sanction record will be removed/closed by CBP Automated Commercial System (ACS), during end-of-day processing when full payment has been received and posted to the bill record.

The Revenue Division will no longer close or remove sanctions manually, except in extraordinary circumstances, where applicable. Questions? Please contact Debt Collections at or (317) 614-4481.
