In order to register these articles, the traveler completes CBP Form 4457, Certificate of Registration for Personal Effects Taken Abroad, and presents it at the port at the time of export. This form must be signed in the presence of a CBP official after verification of the description of the articles is completed. CBP Form 4457 is accessible at: http://forms.cbp.gov/pdf/ CBP_Form_4457.pdf. CBP Form 4455, Certificate of Registration, is used primarily for the registration, examination, and supervised lading of commercial shipments of articles exported for repair, alteration, or processing, which VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:56 Mar 27, 2012 Jkt 226001 will subsequently be returned to the United States either duty free or at a reduced duty rate. CBP Form 4455 is accessible at: http://forms.cbp.gov/pdf/ CBP_Form_4455.pdf. CBP Forms 4457 and 4455 are used to provide a convenient means of showing proof of prior possession of a foreign made item taken on a trip abroad and later returned to the United States. This registration is restricted to articles with serial numbers or unique markings. These forms are provided for by 19 CFR 148.1.
