LARGE NUMBERS OF PARCELS HEADED FOR THE US ARE LIKELY TO BE REJECTED FROM 1 JANUARY DUE TO THE NEXT PHASE OF THE SYNTHETICS TRAFFICKING AND OVERDOSE PREVENTION (STOP) ACT

On 23 November, Loadstar reported that large numbers of parcels headed for the US are likely to be rejected as, from 1 January, full and correct advance data sets of all incoming packages through the mail will be mandatory.  This is because of changes that aim to crack down on illicit opioids entering the US through the mail.  They require postal agencies in origin countries to submit in advance full data sets on all parcels to the US Postal Service (USPS), which must forward these advance electronic data (AED) to the Customs & Border Protection agency for scrutiny.  Parcels without a proper AED are to be returned to the country of origin and the associated expenses are the responsibility of the tendering party.

I had omitted the following link (as it did not seem to generate much interest!), but it seemed time to add it again and say that, if you would like to make a (polite) gesture and help me with my removal and computer costs, I have a page at https://www.buymeacoffee.com/KoIvM842y
