The Customs Modernization Act of 1993 (Mod Act) fundamentally altered the relationship between importers and the Customs Service. The Mod Act shifted the legal responsibility to the importer for declaring the value, classification and other information necessary to assess the correct duty rate applicable to entered merchandise. The Mod Act also required importers to use reasonable care to assure the Customs Services is provided accurate and timely data. Finally, the Mod Act increased the maximum civil and criminal penalties for negligent or fraudulent failure to comply with Customs.
