What is Reasonable Care?

About Reasonable Care, CBP & Informed Compliance

The term reasonable care is means that a good faith effort has been made to ensure that all information provided to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Partner Government Agencies (PGAs) is accurate and complete. In addition, reasonable care requires that systems or processes are in place to confirm that the information provided is verifiable and auditable. In order to provide the most efficient path through customs for goods, protocols must be in place to satisfy reasonable care requirements.
