CBP Charleston moves to enforced compliance on SWPM

Last Updated on

CBP at the Port of Charleston has recently announced a shift in compliance posture, from informed to enforced, with respect to the importation of merchandise containing SWPM (solid wood packing material.) While this does not necessarily reflect a nationwide shift in posture, when viewed in conjunction with an overall shift to enforcement under the Trump Administration, it is reasonable to foresee this type of policy being pursued at other ports.
