CBP listed the entire 19 CFR as test materials. Most of us only purchase the actual CBP regualtions which are in parts 1-199. The only area that CBP has tested beyond parts 199 is section 351. I have posted section 351 as a PDF. Please print this out for your materials. Do you need to purchase the entire second half of the CBP Regulations (19 CFR 200 to end)???  That is your decision, but I would not.  CBP has been fairly consistent with exam areas over the years and I see no need to panic for the next exam.  I guess it is possible that CBP could ask questions from other areas of the regulations (200 to 366).  However, to date CBP has never asked questions from other areas… yet.  Section 351 is the section which covers Antidumping and countervailing rules. (AD/CV). 


19 CFR 351 AD/CV
