Customs and Border Protection Bureau February 22, 2005 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Publication of Administrative Forfeiture Notices
Document Number: 05-3327
Type: Rule
Date: 2005-02-22
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, Customs and Border Protection, Customs and Border Protection Bureau
This document adopts as a final rule, a proposed amendment to the Bureau of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Regulations published in the Federal Register on January 14, 2004, to raise the threshold value of seized property for which CBP must publish a forfeiture notice in a newspaper from $2,500 to $5,000. By changing the requirements for publication of administrative forfeiture notices, the amendment significantly reduces the publication costs incurred by CBP, which have often exceeded the value of seized property.
