What is Duty Drawback?

First passed by the U.S. Congress in 1789, the duty drawback law found in 19 USC 1313 allows importers to receive refunds on import duties on merchandise that is subsequently exported. Refunds of import duty through the drawback refund program increases U.S. export activity by making our exports more price-competitive.

Imported merchandise can be exported in either the same condition (referred to as Unused Merchandise Drawback) or following a manufacturing process (known as manufacturing drawback). Understanding the concept of ‘substitution’ is key to assessing your company’s drawback potential.
