Title: Marking Requirements for Ukraine

Date: 4/23/2014 5:22:25 PM

To: Automated Broker Interface

In accordance with 19 United States Code (USC) 1304, every article of foreign origin (or its container) imported into the United States shall be marked in a conspicuous place as legibly, indelibly and permanently as the nature of the article (or container) will permit in such manner as to indicate to an ultimate purchaser in the United States the English name of the country of origin of the article.

Growth, production, or manufacture of a good in Crimea is growth, production, or manufacture of a good in Ukraine. Goods which are the growth, product, or manufacture of Crimea and other areas of Ukraine should be marked as "Product of Ukraine" or "Made in Ukraine". If the container of the imported good is marked, it may be marked, "Contents made in Ukraine" or words similar in meaning. Articles not marked as required by law shall be subject to additional duties of 10 percent of the final appraised value unless exported or destroyed under Customs supervision prior to liquidation.
