CBP Form 1300 - Proposed extension of vessel entrance or clearance statement 

October 28:  The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) today released for publication in the Federal Register a “60-day notice and request for comments” with respect to CBP Form 1300, Vessel Entrance or Clearance Statement.

CBP Form 1300 is used to:

  • Collect commercial vessel data at time of formal entrance and clearance in U.S. ports
  • Allow the master to attest to the truthfulness of all CBP forms associated with the manifest package
  • Collect information about the vessel, cargo, purpose of entrance, certificate numbers, and expiration for various certificates
  • Serve as a record of fees and tonnage tax payments in order to prevent overpayments.

CBP is proposing to extend the expiration date of the collected information, with no change to the burden hours or to the information being collected.

Comments concerning today’s CBP notice [PDF 88 KB] are due 60 days after it is published in the Federal Register, scheduled for October 29, 2013.
