MET means Manifest Examination Team. The hold ordered by MET is called MET exam hold.
What are the functions of Manifest Examination Team in US import clearance? What does MET do under their hold on imported goods in US.
Manifest Examination Team of US check documentation of importers on random basis. Under an MET hold, the authorities verifies invoice, packing list and other required documents if any are verified. If found any suspicious, MET can order for an intensive exam where import container need to be moved to the nearest CFS.
Although many import holds are carried out under US import clearance by CBP and other US government agencies, most of them are on random basis and the procedures and formalities on import customs clearance have been simplified nowadays.
But again my personal request to US government is that importers may not be charged the inspection cost, if no default, malpractice or contraband found on imported goods to US. Some of the charges under exam holds are exorbitant, I feel. CBP can either balance import duty amount for all commodities or arrange a separate fund for all import holds to meet the expenses of private agencies who handle import exam holds. I hope, you can agree with me? Also read What is intensive exam CET exam in US import clearance Customs holds and examination in US import customs clearance.
