How to Enter Beef Export Certificate Entry

Beef Export Certificate Entry

 

Overview

As a result of the Beef Export Certificate requirements (Admin Message 04-2376 and 04-2552), a Beef Export Certificate number must be reported on imported items originating from Argentina (AR), Australia(AU), New Zealand (NZ) and Uruguay (UY). The certification is based on the tariff number and the country of origin of the shipment. The Beef Export Certificates are optional for warehouse entry types (21, or 22) and for the TIB entry type (23).

Tip: The key to entering this type of entry through Kewill Customs is to input a tariff number that requires a Beef Export Certificate number, and if your country of origin is AR, AU, NZ or UY, the Beef Certificate pop-up page will automatically display after you type in the tariff number. You will then enter the Beef Export Certificate number that will be sent with the entry to U.S. Customs.

 

Prerequisites for Australia Certificate processing

  • Beef Export Certificates are required for beef shipments from Argentina (AR), Australia (AU), New Zealand (NZ), and Uruguay (UY).
  • The following tariff numbers are affected: 0201101010, 0201101090, 0201201000, 0101203000, 0201205000, 0201301000, 0201303000, 0202101010, 0202101090, 0202201000, 0202203000, 0202205000, 0202301000, 0202303000, and 0202305000.
