CBP In-Bond System Frequently Asked Questions

Once the in-bond is sent and on file with CBP

An enroute designation is given to s shipment upon initial entry into the United States. It can also be given immediately after the creation of the in-bond if it is for a foreign trade zone withdrawal or a bonded warehouse. According to regulations, these in-bond shipments need to be at their destination in no more than 30 days or else they will be declared overdue.

An in-bond will be designated as arrived once it reached the destination port in the United States and its arrival reported to the Customs Border Protection Agency electronically. Such a designation will typically complete the in-bond process for Immediate Transportation type in-bonds as after this they will typically be deemed “closed.”

Goods that have left the US are designated as exported once they have been reported as such to the CBP through electronic means. They could also be deemed exported when the shipment is in a location in which export is reasonably certain. For instance, goods at an airport, seaport or rail location and under a carrier charged with exporting them. This designation signifies the end of the in-bond process for type Immediate Export and Transportation and type Exportation which will then be deemed “closed.”

In some situations, the in-bond will be concluded by the filing of a succeeding bond. In such an instance, the in-bond will show as “arrived.” Once a succeeding in-bond is filed, the previous one will be designated as “Concluded” given that the liability will transfer from the old to the new in-bond and in doing so complete the in-bond process. The initial in-bond will then be deemed “closed.”

The exceptions for the 7512 document for in-bond shipment include:

● Shipments transported by aircraft
● Differences in requirements of specific CBP Ports
● Requirements for foreign trade movements and bonded warehouses

Given that it is not possible to know when the document may be required, it is recommended to have it alongside every shipment to prevent any complications or delays.
