Abstract: The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) regulations require an individual attempting to export a used self propelled vehicle to furnish documentation to CBP at the port of export. Exportation of a vehicle is permitted only upon compliance with these requirements. The required documentation includes, but is not limited to, a Certificate of Title or a Salvage Title, the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN), a Manufacturer's Statement of Origin, etc. CBP will accept originals or certified copies of Certificate of Title. The purpose of this information is to help ensure that stolen vehicles or vehicles associated with other criminal activity are not exported.
Collection of this information is authorized by 19 U.S.C.1627a which provides CBP with authority to impose export reporting requirements on all used self-propelled vehicles. It is also authorized by Title IV, Section 401 of the Anti-Car Theft Act of 1992, 19 U.S.C. 1646(c) which requires all persons or entities exporting a used self-propelled vehicle to provide to CBP, at least 72 hours prior to export, the VIN and proof of ownership of each automobile. This information collection is provided for by 19 CFR Part 192. Further guidance regarding these requirements is provided at:
