U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced that the new requirements for reporting the countries of smelt and cast for imports of aluminum and aluminum derivative products have been delayed by 30 days.

The requirements were originally scheduled to go into effect on April 10, 2023, but will instead go into effect on May 10, 2023. 

According to CBP officials, “this will allow additional time for the trade to update their software programming and systems to comply with these new reporting requirements.”
