Abstract: The collections of information related to the drawback process are required to implement provisions of 19 CFR, Part 191, which provides for a refund of duty for certain merchandise that is imported into the United States and subsequently exported. If the requirements set forth in Part 191 are met, claimants may file for a refund of duties using CBP Form 7551, Drawback Entry.

CBP Form 7553, Notice of Intent to Export, Destroy or Return Merchandise for Purposes of Drawback, is used to notify CBP if an exportation, destruction, or return of the imported merchandise will take place. The information collected on these forms is authorized by 19 U.S.C. 1313(l). The drawback forms are accessible at http://www.cbp.gov/​xp/​cgov/​toolbox/​forms/​.Start Printed Page 19121
