United States

Located in the Western Hemisphere on the continent of North America, the United States is the fourth-largest country in the world. Its total area, including Alaska and Hawaii, is 9,629,091 sq km (3,717,813 sq mi). The conterminous United States extends 4,662 km (2,897 mi) ENE—WSW and 4,583 km (2,848 mi) SSE–NNW. It is bordered on the N by Canada, on the E by the Atlantic Ocean, on the S by the Gulf of Mexico and Mexico, and on the W by the Pacific Ocean, with a total boundary length of 17,563 km (10,913 mi). Alaska, the 49th state, extends 3,639 km (2,261 mi) E–W and 2,185 km (1,358 mi) N–S. It is bounded on the N by the Arctic Ocean and Beaufort Sea, on the E by Canada, on the S by the Gulf of Alaska, Pacific Ocean and Bering Sea, and on the W by the Bering Sea, Bering Strait, Chukchi Sea, and Arctic Ocean, with a total land boundary of 12,034 km (7,593 mi) and a coastline of 19,924 km (12,380 mi).

United States Import Rules

It is well nigh impossible for an individual or company to import a new or used Thai vehicle into the United States. We are exporting a lot of RHD and LHD Toyota Hilux Vigo and other 4x4 pickups to the United States but most of them are brought in temporarily for armoring purposes and then shipped out or brought in for re-export to Latin America.

The United States Government (USG) does not per se prohibit the importation of used vehicles. However, imported used vehicles must comply with the same safety and environmental regulations as any other vehicle sold in the United States during the year it was produced. This restriction makes importing almost an impossibility. Even though Euro-3 and Euro-4 regulations have been accepted worldwide and are just as strict if not more strict than EPA regulations but US and Canada stand alone in not accepting Euro regulations which are now being embraced by not only the countries within European Union but also Asia, Africa and Americas.

The United States Department of Transport has a website explaining the rules about importing a non-Canadian or American manufactured car into America. There are a variety of rules to follow to make sure that the car meets specific safety standards and emission guidelines.

VEHICLE IMPORTATION GUIDELINES FROM NHTSA

(Vehicles Manufactured for Sale in a Country Other than Canada)
January 9, 2006

The following provides information concerning the importation of a passenger car, truck, trailer, motorcycle, bus, or multi-purpose passenger vehicle (MPV) that was not originally manufactured to comply with U.S. or Canadian safety standards. Importers of motor vehicles must file an HS-7 Declaration form (available at ports of entry or at http://www.nhtsa.dot.gov/cars/rules/import) at the time a vehicle is imported to identify the basis for the vehicle’s entry into the United Sates. As a general rule, a motor vehicle less than 25 years old must comply with all applicable Federal motor vehicle safety standards (FMVSS) to be imported on a permanent basis. Vehicles (other than motorcycles) manufactured to comply with the FMVSS will have a certification label affixed by the original manufacturer in the area of the driver-side door. Motorcycles will have the label close to the intersection of the steering post and the handlebars. To make importation easier, when purchasing abroad a vehicle certified to the U.S. standards, a buyer should have the seller verify in the sales contract that the label is attached and present this document at the time of importation.

A vehicle without a certification label cannot be imported as a conforming vehicle. In this case, the importer must contract with a Registered Importer (RI) to modify the vehicle and post a DOT Conformance Bond in an amount equivalent to one and a half times the vehicle’s dutiable value. This bond is in addition to the normal Customs entry bond. Copies of the DOT Conformance Bond and the contract with an RI must be attached to the HS-7 form.

Under the contract, the RI will modify the vehicle and certify that it conforms to all applicable FMVSS. Before an RI can modify a vehicle, NHTSA must have determined that the vehicle is eligible for importation based on its capability of being modified to conform to all applicable FMVSS. If no determination has been made, the RI must petition NHTSA to determine whether the vehicle is eligible for importation. If the petitioned vehicle is not similar to one sold in the U.S., this process can become very complex and costly. A list of vehicles that have been determined eligible for importation can be found on NHTSA’s web site at http://www.nhtsa.dot.gov/cars/rules/import.

Since the cost of modifying a nonconforming vehicle, or the time required to bring it into conformance, may affect the decision to purchase a vehicle abroad, we strongly recommend discussing these matters with an RI before buying and shipping a vehicle to the U.S.

For federal regulations concerning vehicle emissions, contact the Environmental Protection Agency, Certification and Compliance Division – Imports Program, 2000 Traverwood, Ann Arbor, MI 48105, (734) 214-4100, or visit the EPA website at http://www.epa.gov/otaq/imports/. Information concerning duty or other Customs matters can be obtained from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection by calling that agency at 1-877-CUSTOMS.

For information regarding titling, registration, or operation of a properly imported vehicle in a specific state, we advise you to contact the Department of Motor Vehicles or other appropriate agency in that state.

RIs who conform vehicles manufactured for sale in countries other than Canada are listed below.

An RI is an independent business and may be selective in terms of the work it performs. A list of RIs can be found at NHTSA website.

 

Safety Regulations

Any vehicle sold in the United States is required to meet Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) as set by the federal government and administered by the Department of Transportation, (DOT). FMVSS requires vehicles to have certain safety equipment and to be engineered in a manner that is codified by the standards, to mitigate personal injury in the event of an accident. Motor vehicles not more than 25 years old must conform to the DOT motor vehicle safety standards that were in effect when these vehicles were manufactured. There are no separate regulations for imported vehicles.

Importers of motor vehicles must file a form (HS-7) at the time a vehicle is imported into the U.S. to declare whether the vehicle complies with DOT requirements. A vehicle without a certification label must be imported as a nonconforming vehicle and the importer must then register with a DOT-Registered Importer (RI) and post a bond with DOT for one and a half times the vehicle's dutiable value. The cost and time needed to bring a vehicle into conformance can be substantial.

The National Highway Traffic Administration's home page (http://www.nhtsa.dot.gov/cars/rules/import/) provides an excellent description of what you need to do.

Foreign-made vehicles imported into the United States are dutiable at the following rates:

  • Auto 2.5 %
  • Trucks 25 %
  • Motorcycles Either free or 2.4 %

The following passenger cars, light-duty trucks, heavy-duty engines and motorcycles are subject to Federal emission standards:

  • Gasoline-fueled cars and light-duty trucks originally manufactured after December 31, 1977
  • Diesel-fueled cars originally manufactured after December 31, 1974
  • Diesel-fueled light-duty trucks originally manufactured after December 31, 1975
  • Heavy-duty engines originally manufactured after December 31, 1979
  • Motorcycles with a displacement of more than 49 cubic centimeters originally manufactured after December 31, 1977

What is a Registered Importer?

A registered importer is a company licensed by the National Highway Traffic & Safety Administration to certify that imported vehicles meet United States safety standards. When vehicles (less than 25 years old) are imported into the United States from other countries, including Canada, the vehicles must be certified as meeting American safety standards. This certification can be provided by the manufacturer (as long as the vehicle is for personal use and not for resale). If the manufacturer refuses to provide the certification (or if the vehicle is imported for resale), the certification must be provided by a registered importer. Consumers who want to purchase Canadian vehicles and dealers who are importing Canadian vehicles for resale may contact NAATA to find a reputable registered importer that services your area.

What is an ICI?

An ICI is an "independent commercial importer". These are companies licensed to certify that vehicles imported from countries other than Canada meet United States safety and emissions standards.

Exporting from Asia can be tricky as auto exporters and car exporters are dime a dozen. The stereotype of used car salesman is universal and based on some truth. With the advent of Internet the crooks have come out of the woodworks to separate the innocent from their money, Thailand is no exception. Caveat emptor - buyer beware - maxim has been heeded by businessmen since the time of the Ancients but it is most relevant when all it takes is a DSL modem, a nerdy kit with some HTML skills to put together a website, some Images (Pics) taken at your competitor's lots and you are in business. We have seen a parade of newbie auto exporters come in, offer great deals for a year or so perpetrating an elaborate Ponzi scheme and then disappear with millions of dollars of their customers very hard earned money. Will you trust a company that has been in business for 1 year or one that has been in business for 100 years and is well respected not only all over Asia but also beyond Asian boundaries. If someone offers you a deal that sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Not all new entrants are crooks but there are some who in their quest for the fast buck wants to cut corners at the expense of the customer. When you work with Soni you have the peace of mind to know that we have been voted Thailand's most trusted dealership and Thailand's most trusted auto exporter five years in a row and it is for this reason that we have over 80% of the auto exporting market share in Thailand.
