NCSD Binding Rulings in Wake of COVID-19


In a CSMS message published on March 20, the National Commodity Specialist Division (NCSD) announced that it is still accepting requests for binding rulings, but due to the evolving COVID-19 outbreak, processing operations of the Customs Information Exchange branch has been affected and may see some delays.


The message states that “during this time, it is recommended that all ruling requests be made through the use of eRulings (, and include detailed photographs or short videos of the product to be submitted in lieu of samples.”
