the knowledge of the individual agent and their experience will be factors in what gets seized..

They will always err on the side of prudence.. regardless of the legality of inport .. if the agent making the call is not sure.. it will be seized.. it may be subsequently reviewed and released ...

Recent experience indicates that one can even go armed with the specific regulations in hand and required documentation that would indicate by their own regulations an item should be allowed... and the item is denied entry on the judgment of the agent.

The rules are not rules they are guidelines .. the individual agent is empowered to make judgment calls..

this is why the events at import are so un- even and why some things will get through sometimes and not others.
