Steel Imports e-CERT with Korea


U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and the Republic of Korea held a ribbon cutting ceremony May 15 to celebrate the deployment of the Electronic Certification System (eCERT) to the Republic of Korea.

The new government-to-government system reduces processing times, improves the security of both exports and imports and delivers enhanced quota compliance and enforcement for both the United States and the Republic of Korea. CBP administers and enforces more than 2,100 import quotas which regulate the amounts of commodities that can enter the United States to promote fair and regulated trade. With the deployment of the program for the Republic of Korea steel quotas, the Electronic Certification System will digitally transmit export certificates to CBP on approximately $7 billion in annual steel quota imports to ensure that only authorized parties have access to the quota.
