Country of Origin Marking for the Republic of Kosovo
On February 18, 2008, the United States recognized the Republic of Kosovo as a sovereign and independent state and announced that full diplomatic relations would begin immediately. This document notifies the public of the name and English spelling that is to be used for country of origin marking on merchandise imported into the United States from the Republic of Kosovo. The notice also establishes a transition period during which Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will permit the importation of merchandise from the newly independent state with the marking, ``Serbia.''
