What do I need to do if I want to import a car or have a personal vehicle shipped back to the United States?
For information concerning importing a vehicle, engine or engine-driven equipment into the United States you should review the material on the EPA Web site for imports of vehicles, engines and equipment at the following address: http://www.epa.gov/otaq/imports/index.htm
Additionally, the International Import and Export Web site has information about import/export requirements for vehicles, engines, and fuels and fuel additives, as well as chemical substances, hazardous wastes, plumbing products, and scrap metals.
