USA: a step back on the "first sale rule"

In a recent letter addressed to the US transportation and importing community, the Commissioner of US Customs Alan Bersin announced that his administration is working on a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking that will be published in the next days on the Federal Register, that will formally withdraw the 2008 CBP proposal to abolish the first sale rule (read our article).
