Cash Deposit Requirements Pursuant to Section 1632 of the Pension Protection Act of 2006 (H.R. 4), which was signed into law on August 17, 2006, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) is no longer allowing collection of bonds or other types of securities in lieu of a cash deposit for new shippers for each entry of subject merchandise during the period April 1, 2006, through June 30, 2009, except for goods from Canada and Mexico.
