    Prior to importation, those who import auto parts must ensure that the goods meet the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations. Each type of auto part faces different regulations by the applicable Federal Government Agencies. Auto part imports that are subject to EPA and DOT regulations may require a receipt for purchase to clear U.S. Customs.

    Entities that import auto parts are required to complete and submit an EPA Form 3520-1 and DOT Form HS-7. The DOTHS-7 form is required for auto parts considered to be a part of a vehicle’s safety equipment, such as tires, brakes, lighting, and bumpers. These items are subject to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety, Bumper, and Theft Protection Standards. For instance, engines must meet EPA’s emissions standards and bumpers must meet DOT’s safety standards. To prove compliance, the foreign manufacturer’s letter or certificate may be required.

    • EPA FORM 3520-1
    • DOT FORM HS-7
    • CBP FORM 7501

    U.S. Customs and Border Protection require a 7501 Form to declare auto parts before being cleared through Customs. Auto parts that are determined to be non-conforming with standards will be permitted to enter the U.S. on bond while the goods are modified to comply with current regulations. Items must be retested and certified to gain permanent importation. Failure to make arrangements for testing and certification prior to importation may result in re-exportation and fines for the importer.

    Utilizing a licensed customs broker and freight forwarder can help to ensure that those who import auto parts comply with Federal regulations and avoid unnecessary penalties and delays. A customs broker will interact with the applicable Federal Government agency on your behalf to ensure full compliance for each item and shipment. If you have any questions about compliance, the import process and requirements, or would like more information, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.
