The Beginning of the End of the MID

The Global Business Identifier Evaluative Proof of Concept (GBI EPoC) is officially out and open for participation by entry filers (i.e., importers of record and licensed customs brokers who file type 1 & 11 entries) and it has very specific parameters. I was very excited to see that CBP was looking to end MID’s and get the data elsewhere – now we know more about the who and the why. I consider this the beginning of the end of MID’s with an extra layer of snooping for targeting data. Below identified the who, what, and when.
