Quick Question: Parts Importation

Several ARSA members have approached the association about problems importing aircraft parts into the United States for repair.  Inconsistent application of customs rules has resulted in repair stations paying import duties on parts that should be exempt under the Agreement on Trade in Civil Aircraft. In addition to having to pay the government, companies report devoting considerable personnel resources to navigating customs rules and dealing with conflicting guidance from stakeholders. 

This “question” is now closed, but the association has not published the results. For more information, contact Brett Levanto (brett.levanto@arsa.org). The insights gained from the responses were utilized while constructing ARSA’s resources specific to parts importation. Visit arsa.org/regulatory/customs.
