Merchandise Processing Fee

Recent trade legislation, H.R. 2832, was signed into law on October 21, 2011, changing the merchandise processing fee (MPF) rate for formal entries from 0.21% (.0021) to 0.3464% (.003464), effective October 1, 2011. The minimum and maximum fees, $25 and $485 respectively, did not change. CBP is currently in the process of modifying our automated systems to accept the new MPF rate of 0.3464%. We do not have an estimated completion date at this time; however, we will notify the trade as soon as possible via the Cargo Systems Messaging Service, when filers may begin transmitting entry summary information with the new MPF rate. Cargo Systems Messaging Service )

For entries filed on or after October 1, 2011, until the CBP system changes take effect with the 0.3464% rate, CBP will bill the importer for the increase in MPF. CBP will disregard differences of less than $20.
