Customs agreement with the U.S. enters into force

By Mayora IP - 22/11/2022

A Joint Work Plan between the United States Customs and Border Protection and the customs administrations of Guatemala (SAT) entered into force on October 27, 2022.

The agreement is legally binding, government-to-government that provides the legal framework for the exchange of information to assist in the enforcement against customs offenses. 

It helps establish greater bilateral cooperation on trade and law enforcement issues, facilitating trade by enabling greater efficiency in searches, seizures, detentions, audits, and other enforcement actions, allowing legitimate trade and travel to flow more freely.

The agreement aids in the prevention, detection, and investigation of crimes associated with goods crossing international borders (e.g., duty evasion, Intellectual Property Rights violations, trafficking).
