In this article, a republishing of a Miller & Chevalier alert, David Hardin and Daniel Wendt discuss common reasons for outbound detention and seizures, as identified by Customs and Border Protection (CBP). With these factors in mind, exporters should tailor their business processes, compliance programs, and export transactions to avoid the common reasons outlined. Exporters should consider using CBP's reasons as a checklist or as a supplement to their existing list. Although no single compliance measure will eliminate the risk of detention or seizure, an eye towards the reasons identified is likely to reduce that risk.
