The author offers view on the contrarian stand of the Commercial Operations Advisory Committee (COAC) on proposal of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection for advanced data and the withdrawal of the first-sale rule. He inferred that the Custom's proposal to eliminate the first-sale rule, which allows importers to use a lower valuation in calculating duty, provoked a rare display of unanimity within the trade community.
