(a) Verification. A claim for preferential tariff treatment made under § 10.1003(b) or § 10.1011 of this subpart, including any statements or other information submitted to CBP in
support of the claim, will be subject to such verification as the Center director
deems necessary. In the event that the Center director is provided with insufficient information
to verify or substantiate the claim, the Center director finds a pattern of conduct,
indicating that an importer, exporter, or producer has provided false or unsupported
declarations or certifications, or the exporter or producer fails to consent to a
verification visit, the Center director may deny the claim for preferential treatment. A verification of a claim for preferential tariff treatment under UKFTA for goods
imported into the United States may be conducted by means of one or more of the following:
(1) Written requests for information from the importer, exporter, or producer;
(2) Written questionnaires to the importer, exporter, or producer;
(3) Visits to the premises of the exporter or producer in the territory of Korea, to
review the records of the type referred to in § 10.1009(c)(1) of this subpart or to observe the facilities used in the production of the good,
in accordance with the framework that the Parties develop for conducting verifications;
(4) Such other procedures to which the Parties may agree.
(b) Applicable accounting principles. When conducting a verification of origin to which Generally Accepted Accounting
Principles may be relevant, CBP will apply and accept the Generally Accepted Accounting
Principles applicable in the country of production.
