US CBP withdraws Jones Act re-interpretation


The US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) included a notice on pages 11-12 of the current edition of its Customs Bulletin and Decisions newsletter stating that it has withdrawn its proposed modification and revocation of ruling letters relating to Customs application of the Jones Act to transportation of certain merchandise and equipment between coastwise points.  CBP said that, based on the comments received on the matter, both supporting and opposing the proposed action, and CBP’s further research on the issue, “we conclude that the agency’s notice of proposed modification and revocation of the various ruling letters relating to the Jones Act should be reconsidered.”
