Subject: FDA Prior Notice Filing
To: All Clients
From: Howard Berman; Vice President - CFO

Please note Thursday May 13, 2004 FDA will remove the grace period for failing to file prior notice for cargo entering into the United States. FDA requires prior notice at least four hours prior to aircraft landing on all air shipments.

FDA requires prior notice at least 24 hours prior to steamship docking on all ocean shipments.

The only proof of obtaining prior notice from the FDA is the 12 digit FDA Prior Notice Certification number issued directly by FDA. Currently Agra-Services Brokerage Co, Inc. obtains this number during the normal processing of Customs Entries. Should our office not transmit arrival information for cargo and your office has not obtained an FDA Prior Notice Certification number directly, FDA has the right to hold your cargo at the port of entry. There are several reasons why our office may not transmit the FDA prior notice information within the required time frame. Some of these reasons are listed below, but they are not limited to:

All information necessary to transmit the Customs part of the entry was not provided to our office.

Authority to make Customs entry has not been given to us by the importer.

The ABI (Automated Brokerage Interface) system with Customs is down (either on our side or Customs side.)

The shipper or client is over their credit limit, which prevents our system from processing the Customs Entry. It is important for customers, importers, and shippers to understand the FDA prior notice obtained by our office may not occur within the time frame as required by FDA. Therefore it is suggested that each shipping company, and importing company set up a system within their organization to assure that Prior Notice requirements for FDA are complied with. Agra-Services Brokerage Co, Inc., its employees, and agents will not be held responsible or liable if shipments do not have prior notice confirmations. Specific arrangements must be made with our office in the form of a signed FDA Prior Notice Agreement. This agreement is a contract between our firms that stipulates our agreement to undertake the responsibility for processing FDA prior notice on your shipments. Additional information regarding FDA prior notice can be obtained directly from FDAs web site at: http://www.cfsan.fda.gov/~pn/pnoview.html
