U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has issued a final rule, effective March 17, 2011, to finalize its regulations that eliminated the textile declaration and added new Manufacturer Identification Code (MID) requirements for textiles and apparel. The final rule adopts the October 2005 interim rule, which excluded personal use shipments from the MID requirement, and limited the MID requirement for textiles and apparel outside of Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) Section XI to those within category numbers.
