In addition, this new title provides complete coverage of how Rulings are issued and how to handle a negative Customs response, including the filing of protests and, ultimately, review by the U.S. Court of International Trade and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

Import Practice Answer Book 2015 is designed to assist importers, attorneys, customs brokers, accountants, freight forwarders, customs consultants, Customs professionals in government service, and students in finding answers to the technical legal and administrative practice questions that inevitably arise in connection with importing merchandise into the United States.
