Textile imports under scanner of US customs

The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) issued a report regarding the situation of law enforcement in textile trade on April 10, saying that textile trade will remain the focus of law enforcement for CBP in 2009 fiscal year.

The document says that textile import duties account for about 42 percent of the total tariff collected by the U.S. Customs. But importers avoid huge tariffs through means of illegal re-imports, forgery of documents, labels, false names, under-quantities and value.

The CBP seized US $50 million of imported goods that tried to evade limits on China textiles in 2007 and that figure amounted to $51 million in 2008. In addition, The CBP also seized US $26 million of imported textile products that were in violation of intellectual property rights in 2008.
