§ 41.86 Procedure for release.
(a) Every manufacturer of tobacco products or cigarette papers and tubes and every export warehouse proprietor who desires to obtain the release of tobacco products or cigarette papers and tubes from customs custody, without payment of internal revenue tax under its internal revenue bond, as provided in §§ 41.85 or 41.85a, must prepare a notice of release, TTB F 5200.11 and file the form with the appropriate TTB officer in accordance with the instructions on the form. The appropriate TTB officer will certify TTB F 5200.11 covering the release of the tobacco products or cigarette papers and tubes under 26 U.S.C. 5704(c) or (d) if the manufacturer or export warehouse proprietor is authorized to receive the products.
(b) Importers who are manufacturers of tobacco products or cigarette papers and tubes or export warehouse proprietors, or their authorized agents, who request the release of tobacco products or cigarette papers and tubes from customs custody in the United States under this section, using customs electronic filing procedures, must not request the release until they have received the TTB F 5200.11 certified by the appropriate TTB officer. Once U.S. Customs and Border Protection releases the tobacco products or cigarette papers and tubes in accordance with 19 CFR part 143, customs directives, and any other applicable instructions, the importer must submit a copy of the TTB F 5200.11 along with a copy of the electronic filing and customs release to the appropriate TTB officer at the address shown on TTB F 5200.11. The importer must retain two copies of the TTB F 5200.11, one copy to meet TTB recordkeeping requirements and one copy to meet customs recordkeeping requirements.
(c) Importers or their authorized agents requesting release of tobacco products or cigarette papers or tubes from customs custody in the United States under any authorized procedure other than the electronic filing procedures provided for in paragraph (b) of this section, must submit all copies of the TTB F 5200.11 to the appropriate customs officer along with the request for release. The customs officer will verify that the TTB F 5200.11 has been certified by the appropriate TTB officer and return all copies to the importer or the importer's authorized agent.
(d) Once U.S. Customs and Border Protection releases the tobacco products or cigarette papers and tubes in accordance with 19 CFR part 143, customs directives, and any other applicable instructions, the importer must send a copy of the TTB F 5200.11 along with a copy of the customs release to the appropriate TTB office at the address shown thereon. The importer must retain two copies of the TTB F 5200.11, one copy to meet TTB recordkeeping requirements and one copy to meet customs recordkeeping requirements.
