The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) office responded to a letter that Senator Lujan sent on our behalf regarding the Pecan Import Fee. This response confirms in writing what the American Pecan Promotion Board has been told to date on the timing and cost of implementing the Pecan Import Fee.
“Barring unforeseen circumstances, the Pecan Import Fee automated collection program will be implemented in ACE in October 2023 at no
cost to APPB,” writes CBP Acting Commissioner Troy A. Miller. “It will be done as part of ACE Collections Release No. 7.”
