General: cancellation of entries
Pre clearance cancellation procedure requires a request on Chief (XTCE). Post clearance application is usually by letter or email. When a request for a cancellation of an entry is received from an importer or agent prior to Clearance the following action is to be taken by Query:
- endorse all copies of the entry ‘cancelled’
- route the entry direct to Post-clearance for filing
- adjust any quota scheduling that has taken place.
Cancellation is not a suitable procedure for diversions to another port. For inventory traffic CPC 00 09 090 is used and for non -inventory a new clearance is issued for the port.
