Other Government Agency Processing
Many commodities that are imported into the United States require other government agency filings. Sometimes these requirements are unknown to the importer or the manufacturers/suppliers overseas which can cause delays in clearance and in some cases even detainment. This can be a costly burden to importers and can easily be avoided if you are informed of the special requirements for entry before it is exported from the country of origin.
