Customs rules change from year to year in regards to items that you can and cannot bring into the United States or export to other countries and how you have to declare or account for those things. The changes are so frequent, in fact, that even United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) officials have a hard time keeping their own rules straight. For prosecutors, this makes proving intent more difficult to do in many customs violations prosecutions.
United States customs violations involve a wide range of activities: importing or exporting counterfeit goods (usually consumer goods), country of origin issues (importing goods from a prohibited country), exporting goods to countries on the prohibited list via a third party (common in the oil well supply industry) and filing false customs declarations are just a few of the areas where customs enforcement is currently focused.
