Set up the export and import (EXIM) port authorities that you reference in export and import transactions when you apply for Advanced Authorization (AA), Duty Free Import Authorization (DFIA), Export Promotion Capital Goods (EPCG), or Duty Drawback (DBK) incentives.

  • Before you set up the EXIM port authority data for DBK incentives, you must create a customer account and customer bank account for the port authority. For more information about how to set up a customer account and customer bank account, see Create a customer record and Set up a bank account for a customer account.
