Calling All Brokers Who Do Seafood Entries!
If you are familiar with the demands of the Seafood Import Monitoring Program (SIMP) and other NOAA import programs, we need your help.
The NCBFAA Regulatory Agencies Committee (RAC) is working with an organization called Fishwise on a Seafood Roundtable focused solely on customs brokers’ concerns. The Roundtable will include NOAA officials involved in import policy and implementation. The purpose of the Roundtable is for brokers to provide their unique perspective on the current filing requirements for seafood products and the challenges we face. This is not intended to be just a general gripe session, but instead is an opportunity for customs brokers to explain what does not work and offer ideas to improve the program short-term, as well as possible long-term solutions to restructure the program.
The Roundtable will be held virtually on October 24 from 12 to 2 pm ET.
Please contact RAC@ncbfaa.org right away if you or someone in your company can participate.
