FEMA Issues Exemptions from April 10th PPE Export Rule
Document to be published in the Federal Register on Tuesday
On Friday, we reported that
CBP and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) were expected to issue formal guidance on the recently announced April 10th temporary final rule (TFR) on personal protective equipment. The TFR imposed regulations restricting certain scarce or threatened materials for domestic use, so that these materials may not be exported from the United States without
Please notice that to obtain five of the exemptions, FEMA will require a letter of attestation to be submitted to FEMA via CBP's Document Imaging System (DIS) and placed on file with CBP, certifying to FEMA the purpose of the shipment of covered materials.
Many Airforwarders Association members are handling shipments of Personal Protection Equipment and are urged to review this information as soon as possible.
We look forward to your feedback and questions.
