If your paper declaration (PPQ Form 505) is not complete, U.S. Customs and Border Protection or the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service reviewing officials may hold your shipment at the port pending inquiries to you, your agent, and/or APHIS. Make the corrections as soon as possible to ensure your shipment is not detained. If you or your agent file the declaration in the LAWGS data system or ACE, the systems will prompt you to ensure all of the necessary fields are completed prior to submission.
If you discover that the declaration contains incorrect information before or after the shipment is released, follow the guidance in the above panel entitled, "What should I do if I need to revise my declaration after I submit it?"
