The binding ruling program enables importers and other interested parties to get binding pre-entry classification decisions prior to importing a product and filing entries with Customs and Border Protection. It is also to get binding guidance about other CBP regulations pertaining to marking of country of origin requirements.

Binding classification advice can only be given by the Office of Regulations and Rulings. Cleared and Delivered submits either an electronic request or a letter describing the product in detail and provides a sample to the CBP Information Exchange, National Commodity Specialist for a ruling. The importer generally receives a response within 30 days.

Tariff Classifications are binding, however duty rates are not. The program promotes compliance, uniformity and accuracy.

Let Cleared and Delivered handle the binding ruling process for you! We can expedite and simplify the entire process so you can start importing!
